Ahhh, Scientology. You know, no mater how hard I try I just can't get my head round it. Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and so many more,
too many to mention in fact - all of these I can accept. Scientology just stumps me though.
Nobody disputes that the belief system was created in 1957 by L. Ron Hubbard as a successor to his self-help system, Dianetics. How, in any
way shape or form can it be accepted as a religion? How?
So we're all immortal spiritual beings that have lost our true nature? OK, so far, this contrasts well with many belief systems, but then we get the
detail. Thetans? Hmmm, strange how the enlightenment of spiritual beings who have forgotten their roots attracts such fiscal success for those that
give the enlightenment, don't ya think?
I am happy for people to believe in any crazy sh*t that they deem applicable to their lives, hell, I have some pretty far outs beliefs myself, but
this is clearly a pyramid scheme thought up by a science-fiction writer with delusions of spiritual enlightenment.
Apparently intelligent people get caught up in this! Arthur C. Clarke missed his calling, he'd have been bigger than Christ if only he had gone with
the religion theme. Carl Sagan? Could have been lauded as a holy prophet if only he'd have run a few seminars and charged for a few pamphlets.
The whole concept is nonsense, complete nonsense. I fear for humanity simply because of the retarded nature of the gene pool that adhere to this. If
only it was a suicide cult then perhaps we could laugh about it and consider it a lucky escape for society.
Ahhh well, back to selling my own urine as a holy curative I guess. Someday, I'll be as big as Scientology and then you'll see!
