Might be fun to watch them shag their alien spouses.

OK... So this thread got me to reading about Scientology, to see what the deal is. All I can say is what a f*#king fruit loop! Anyone who follows him/believes in this crap is a f*#king fruit loop too. Wow!

At least we can take solace in the fact that they are fruity enough that the handing out of the Koolaid should be soon and they'll all be dead.

Brainwashing and Mind Control Methods

Relaxation, sleep depravation, meditation creates a higher state of suggestibility.
love bombing
acceptance/belonging
rewards
Diet that has no protein, removes the ability to reason and use logic. (Self think.)
Isolation within cult
financial commitment
dependancy
Removal from their former life; new name/location, status...
group pressure
uncompromising rules
Etc.

It never stops amazing me how people can make broad sweeping statements on topics they know absolutely nothing about.
Wait, thats ther definition of an internet forum, sorry.
There are volumes of good info there, can anybody explain one of the millions of concepts?
I did not think so.


But this is the norm, so don't worry.

No, I am not a Scientologist.
Just someone with an open mind.

amazing isn't it?

you gotta read Eric Hoffer/True Believer -
all about fanaticism and mass movements;
a tiny book it explains so much in language
for everyone.

For instance, I feel we are in the "middle"
of the biggest and most powerful mass movement
ever, it's called Consumerism; so omnipresent
and woven into the fabric of American culture as be
*almost* invisible...

Fanatics = scary people.

Thanks, Sewellymon.

That told me more than anything so far.

Does Scientology have anything to do with *EST* (Werner Erhard's hustle)?

Dr. Rock,
L. Ron Hubbard Jr." is my expert. If you happen to be part of this religion, then get use to me calling it a cult. This link is L. Ron Hubbard Jr.'s take on his Dad's creation.

You do know that practicing Scientology is banned in Greece, France, Germany and the United Kingdom.

More than anything, it kind of reminds me of the Heaven's Gate kooks! Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll find Tom and clan in the hotel in Clearwater, "waiting for the aliens".... You can never have too many cult mass-suicides... hahaha

Yeah, we should put down people we don't understand and try to create a culture of intolerance toward them and to those who have sympathy for them.

Or... we could take it one step further and refuse to talk to their leaders until they concede that democracy (shoot, I mean our ideas whatever they are - no reference to Iran in here) is better. That'll build bridges and create a better world, hell yeah it will.

Now if you'll excuse me some fat old guy, who invented the interweb, told me to buy a Prius or the world would end. I've also got to get my pressed organic Patagonia pants on so I look cool at the farmers market. After that I'm going to hang with my friends and laugh at people I don't care to understand because I've dismissed them based on one or two labels instead of trying to understand the whole picture. Hey it makes me feel better so don't be a hater about it.

Peace.
