Scientology®!

Long, long ago, in my relative youth, I decided to pick up Dianetics by L.R. Hubbard and see what the heck it was all about. Entirely out of curiosity, I might add, rather than a desire to improve my teenage life.

Congratulations to Mr. Hubbard because he was the first author who received my chuck-it-out-the-window treatment! What a load of crap, and I only read the introduction! If a teenager of my inexperience could recognize the total load of bullshit that was contained there, then why is Scientology such a big player in popular culture? God only knows, but she’s not telling. My bet is because of their practice of recruiting actors and musicians like Tom Cruise , John Travolta and Beck. (for info on Cruise’s weird Matt Lauer interview recently, try the Friday, June 24, 2005 edition of http://youcantmakeitup.blogspot.com/ )

Note: People find solace and comfort in all sorts of places, and it is not my place to insist on where they should go for it. Scientology is no weirder than some other non-harmful ways of life, but the Church of Scientology is really beyond weird.

Don’t believe me though. Check it out for yourself.

I would add more, but the sites already mentioned can give you plenty of links further.

    To be fair to Beck, he’s second-generation, so it’s either go along with it or get your family cut off from you.

    And, check this one out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_opera_in_Scientology_doctrine

    Great God almighty, those Wikipedia links are scary. I ask myself how anyone can believe this utter crap, and then I look at the people involved and I understand. It’s an insult to science to use the stem of such an upstanding word to brand such complete hooey.
