Ha ha. The unchanging words of Elron, which could never be altered, now squirreled into a new doctrine by Miscavige. And EVERY paid up member will be expected to hand over the $7.5k for a set.

Is that a misspelling, or were you trying to coin a new word by merging "artificial" and "artifacts", subby?

Not that I care one turd about either, but Travolta flies around in his own private 707 and Cruise just floated God a loan. I think their careers are pretty well set.

FTFA: "It would be like discovering that Buddha, unbeknownst to anybody, had sat down and wrote down the entirety of his discoveries and it could be verified that he wrote it," said Tommy Davis, the church's top spokesman."

Yeah, utterly astonishing that a Sci-Fi author wrote down things about the religion he was making up. Did any of the recordings include when he talked about how easy it would be to make up a religion and then make tons of money from it? That's exactly like the Buddha!

It's worse then that. Humanity could be wiped out and hundreds of years after our cities are dust some alien species could land and all they'll find as evidence of our existence are those titanium plates engraved with all of Hubbards writings in that Scientology bunker in New Mexico.

Why does everyone make up their own version of who had a bet with LRon? I've heard everything from Heinlein to Betty Crocker.

It wasn't a bet, it was a conversation with Harlan Ellison, Alfred Bester, Cyril Kornbluth, Lester Del Rey and of course, LRon.

Is that like how people are now laughing at how "prehistoric" the jews and romans were a couple thousand years ago for how they created a stupid religion that consumes people today? People talk about biblical people like they spoke english and had the intelligence of people that live in the now.

Having seen the previews for both of their upcoming action films, I can easily say that Travolta's looks like the biggest piece of cinematic trash this side of Ecks vs Sever. Cruise's, on the other hand, might actually be pretty damn good if all the good parts aren't already in the trailer.

Hubbard is quoted to having said 'Working your life away is for suckers. If a man really wants to get rich, start a religion'

The Buddha was a skinny guy. The fat, laughing "buddha" is actually Bodai, a Buddhist monk in China. Eventually the West got confused about the difference, and started labelling Bodai as Confucian Buddhas.
