Bahai sounds similar to and makes about as much sense as the beliefs of a lot of people I know, included among them anarchists, communists, and those who watched the internet film Zeitgeist. Never heard of the Pythagorean Brotherhood, and didn't know that Jains believed in a very old very tall man. Those were the 3 I missed. Cool quiz.
