check out this new book on Scientology:


If its all lies concocted for the purpose of making money as Spider suggests then I'm sure it could be prosecuted in civil court, something that Scientology obviously has no problem with as they have a history of doing just that.


Would you say that is accurate Spider?

I heard the interview with the author on NPR yesterday and he sounded very honorable. He made it sound as though while The Church's lawyers have made lots of threatening noises they haven't actually filed anything against him, yet. That speaks volumes as to the veracity of the book.

Scientology may be no more irrational than any other religion. That still doesn't mean its adherents aren't completely nuts.

Scientology is hard for many people in the Western World to grasp because it is more like a Ponzi scheme

Everything you need to know about scientology can be distilled down to a single phrase and concept introduced in fourth-grade texts in their grade schools: "senior knowledge".

Beyond that there is really no need to know anything else about them.

Years and I mean years ago, I tried to choke through the book "dianetics" that i got through the mail (way,way pre internet). Every week in the mail came crap about buying some sort of "meter" and it was EXPENSIVE. I forget what use they were supposed to achieve, but I do remember price tags -300 - 2500 smackers - utter nonsense in my military day pay. After 2 or 3 chapters,I knew it was bullsh#t. I cannot believe anything about scientology to this day. My rant --over !!
