good doc exposing the fraud that is scientology on cbc newsworld right now. i'm sure they'll replay it again later tonight if you're interested and miss it.
Just watching it now. A very interesting doc about one of the most ludricous religions around.
The difference between you and me .........
It is a multi-level marketing scheme.
It's different from other religions? How?
All are run as a business.
All seem to be written by second rate writers that couldn't even keep the plot straight.
All of them have some ludicrous things for you to believe. If you can get past those then you are a part of the group.
I think most people feel the group think as a sense of belonging - but you can be a part of any secular group and get the same feeling.

Yeah, but not all make this statementso how bloody DAFT does one have to be to believe in anything that guys says after the fact?You don't get rich writing science fiction. If you want to get rich, you start a religion.

As religions go I think Scientology is one of the more believable ones actually. Think about it, people from outer space, other planets yada yada! Or you go with the more traditional ones with Noah putting all the worlds animals on a boat, or some dude parting oceans or a miracle a minute Jesus..most of Christianity and Muslim religions were a direct plagiarism of ancient Egyptian religions. Face it boys and girls...all these stories and myths no matter what religion were man made but isn't it funny when your a Christian you think the Muslims are full of shit and both of you think the Mormons are a joke and all the above think that Scientology is crap. Christians have no problem believing that Christ was a virgin birth but they think Muslims believe in flying horses is crazy...face it all the worlds religions are simply a form of crowd control and there isn't one iota bloody difference between any of them.
bla bla bla... religion is bad bla bla bla. Nothing to see here. Move along.
What suprises me the most is folks of high intellect who are convinced of the concept of a sky god.
I can see folks who fall into the IQ range of 80-120 thinking that this is logical and reasonable, but not those who are 135+.
I try and respect my friends for their opinions, but I can't help but think
that those who believe in this homo sapein derived illusion are nothing short
of stupid for it.
It's a sign of shallow intelligence in my opinion.
I can see why so many people buy into it, they are of average intelligence - and it appeals to them like a flock
of sheep. Looking for a deeper meaning for what is basic human existance derived from evolution. A waste
of time and in many cases, money.
