Do you have a chupacabra?


Do You Have a Chupacabra?

Take the Alibi quiz

By Benjamin Radford
It seems that every few months a chupacabra makes news somewhere. Maybe it’s a bunch of dead goats found on some rural Texas ranch. Maybe it’s a weird, hairless quadruped sighted along Coors. Descriptions of the chupacabra vary widely, and if you find a weird, dead animal in your backyard or on your ranch, how do you know if it’s a chupacabra?

Music Quiz

Punky Cinema

Film Guide special! Match the movies to the musicians that appeared in them

By Jessica Cassyle Carr

It's a known law of the universe that the actors-turned-rockers will nearly always be met with disrespect (Kevin Bacon, Keanu Reeves), whereas filmic forays made by musicians are generally accepted as interesting novelties (Iggy Pop, Tom Waits). Below lie 30 films that contain lead roles or small cameos by bands or musicians. Oi!

FlashQuiz: The Belief-O-Matic

By Laura Marrich [ Wed Jul 22 2009 1:38 PM ]

The stated goal of this 20-question philosophy of religion quiz (much more fun than my dry-ass description sounds) is to list 26 popular faiths “in order of how much they have in common with your professed beliefs. The higher a faith appears on this list, the more closely it aligns with your thinking.”

Never in a million years would I have thought Scientology would crack my Top 10, but Belief-O-Matic tells a different story. Scary. Here’s how I scored:

1. Unitarian Universalism (100%)

2. Neo-Pagan (94%)

3. Mahayana Buddhism (93%)

4. Liberal Quakers (91%)

5. New Age (87%)

6. Secular Humanism (87%)

7. Theravada Buddhism (86%)

8. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (78%)

9. Taoism (75%)

10. Scientology (69%)

11. New Thought (67%)

12. Reform Judaism (63%)

13. Jainism (59%)

14. Orthodox Quaker (57%)

15. Hinduism (54%)

16. Sikhism (54%)

17. Nontheist (53%)

18. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (51%)

19. Baha'i Faith (44%)

20. Orthodox Judaism (32%)

21. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (26%)

22. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (26%)

23. Islam (24%)

24. Seventh Day Adventist (23%)

25. Eastern Orthodox (16%)

26. Roman Catholic (16%)

27. Jehovah's Witness (13%)
