    hi everyone, i found this link The Un-Funny Truth about Scientology

    and was wondering what everyone thought about Scientology. I read the forum rules and i think this topic is ok. What do you think? cult or religion? I like to embrace everyone's religion, but this does seem to be an interesting topic indeed, especially considering L. Ron hubbard was a science fiction writer, and the religion is about an evil space lord named Xenu, alien spirits infecting our minds after being nuked in a volcano, and a sense of "evil" about all drugs.


    lets please stay very civil and respect everyone's beliefs, even if they do believe the mother ship is coming

    Personally I think its a load of BS. But, then again I think all religion is BS. Scientology is just the funniest of them all.

    Now before I get flames hurrled my way whatever religion you belive in is your business. I'm just stating my opinion on the matter. Not everyone is like you.
    My life sucks

    it's a religion that basically says that a long time ago an evil space lord named Xenu sent a bunch of aliens to die and he nuked them in a volcano. their souls survived and they were brainwashed to believe in religion. now they inhabit out bodies and they cause bad emotions, bad health, etc. the only way to get rid of the aliens, is to not take drugs, including aspirin, follow scientology, etc. people are immortal, and are called Thetans.

    from wikipedia:

    Some central beliefs of Scientology:

    * A person is an immortal spiritual being (termed a thetan) who possesses a mind and a body.
    * Through the Scientology process of "auditing", one can free oneself of "engrams" and "implants" to reach the state of "Clear", and after that, the state of "Operating Thetan". Each state is said to represent recovering the native spiritual abilities of the individual, and to confer dramatic mental and physical benefits.
    * The thetan has lived through many past lives and will continue to live beyond the death of the body.
    * A person is basically good, but becomes "aberrated" by moments of pain and unconsciousness in his or her life.
    * What is true for you is what you have observed yourself. No beliefs should be forced as "true" on anyone. Thus, the tenets of Scientology are expected to be tested and seen to either be true or not by Scientology practitioners.
    * Psychiatry and psychology are evil and abusive. [10]
    * Humans retain many emotional problems caused by early stages of evolution (see Scientology History of Man).


    the entire, huge article can be found here, at Wikipedia

    I love YTMND. That's one example of an incredible art form. Scientology is a scam.

    Beware of belief systems that claim to bring you levels of enlightenment that their founders never reached.
