Let me give you a little inside information about God. God likes to watch. He's a prankster. Think about it. He gives man instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do, I swear for His own amusement, his own private, cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition. It's the goof of all time. Look but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste. Taste, don't swallow. Ahaha. And while you're jumpin' from one foot to the next, what is he doing? He's laughin' His sick, farkin' ass off! He's a tight-ass! He's a SADIST! He's an absentee landlord! Worship that? NEVER!

foo monkey: What are the good points of Scientology?  What does Scientology teach?  Every major religion teaches the same fundamental rules of treating your family and fellow man with respect.  All I hear about Scientology is no medicine, silent births, forced work camps, 737s dropping bombs into volcanoes, Tom Cruise, and Jon Travolta.  What are the redeeming qualities?


They teach everyone who isn't a Scientologist that cults are bad.

A minor can not enter into a contract in the US without proper legal oversight (the legal guardian signs the contract, but it must be in the child's best interest).  Also, a billion year contract isn't enforceable, anyway.

Well, to be honest, there is no religion that can appear sane. Mormons, Muslims, and whatever other dredge are the philosophical retards of our Johnny come lately made up dogma.

Wow. I bet you consider yourself 'tolerant' too.


Me? Noooo.

I could see how faith or belief could help on a personal level. Why do I have cancer? Why did mom die? Why is my ball team losing?

But religion, any religion, the institution, the whole man-made man-driven crusade-making, suicide-bombing, inquisitioning, child diddling fark up is worthless. Maybe it had a purpose at some point. Now it's an ongoing erosion of humanity and excuse for willful ignorance.

And no, I don't have a particularly high opinion of my fellow man, and yes, I'm a fairly intolerant arsehole. Just like your god made me.

To understand what Scientology does and why it does it, understand its history.  In World War II, Lafayette Ronald Hubbard was a mediocre US Navy officer.  He was discharged after the war, and wrote the VA asking for psychiatric help for his emotional/mental problems in the late 1940's.  His request was denied on the grounds that there was no evidence his problems were tied to his military service.  He was already by this point a pulp sci-fi writer.  He devoted himself to studying self-help books and eastern religions.  Several years later he came out with Dianetics, a self-help book that blended elements of eastern religions (talk about reincarnation mostly) with a lot of 1950's era computer jargon.

He opened a chain of "Dianetics Centers" that practiced the "auditing" counseling he advocated, which basically involved being hooked up to a crude lie detector while recounting traumatic times in your life (and past lives) while in a trance.  The idea was that all your mental and emotional problems came from bad "memory engrams" you acquired, which you could delete with help.  However, Dianetics centers began to claim that they could treat pretty much anything with this treatment, that all human frailties and weaknesses were due to engrams.  They were sued for practicing medicine without a license.

Because of the past-life elements of their practices, they rebranded themselves as a religion: Scientology.  They claimed religious exemption.  L. Ron Hubbard set up headquarters in the UK, and created his own private naval paramilitary arm of Scientology: the Sea Organization "Sea Org", with ...


Are there sources you would accept as legitimate? Because, so far you've attacked the source of all linked articles that others have offered. The Tampa Bay/St Petersburg Times archives have decades of stories about Scientology's misdeeds, including the Lisa McPhereson story.

Educate yourself. You've made the assertion that there is no documented evidence of criminal activity. You have been thoroughly rebutted. Now provide cites for your assertion.

Atheism is a religion like Not Collecting Stamps is a hobby.

Interesting how strong projection is in some folks, though.

it is the religion of fooling oneself into believing science is god.

Atheism isn't believing science is god.  It's believing that there is neither a god or a need for one.
