I'm posting this in the 'Jokes, Puns, & Pranks' forum because I want to challenge some of ATS's senior comedians to come offer commentary for these pictures. And also because Scientology is a joke.

The Link
The Scientology Handbook (1994)
The Article:


The fiendish wizards at Dangerous Minds can always be relied upon to unearth some truly arcane bits of Americana, and this cachet of photos culled from a 1994 Scientology manual is absolutely no exception. The 871 page book is rife with druggy, deeply saturated images that are impressively, unintentionally unsettling, depicting a world charged with danger, dereliction, and devilry of every stripe.


The Pictures:

This first one seems pretty normal.
They are both visualizing the future where the granddaughter graduates.

But it doesn't take long for the other ones to start getting weird! See below.

















This picture contains images of substance abuse.




So I figure we can all go around and start by adding captions or a description of the content in the photo. Try and speculate as to what sort of 'self help scenario' each individual photo was there to demonstrate.

It's ok to be gay in Scientology as long as we only have sex telepathically.

They look like a bunch of poorly crafted miniature stories, written by a hack science fiction writer.

What are the odds.

Lol-those are some pretty trippy photos.

I'm not a big fan of religion-but scientology seems like one of the less dangerous (no body count that I am aware of) of the major religions.

Judging by the pics-it seems like scientology involves reprogramming the mind/altering reflexive reactions.

Quite a few of them are pretty funny,though.

I don't want to derail my own thread but if you're looking for a summarized list of the Scientology Body Count then click This Link.

Mary never thought anything of it when her brother devoted himself Scientology.

So when he asked her to go for dinner, she figured, whats the worse that could happen?
