      I've said this before, but it still kills me. I don't know, whenever I hear Scientology, I can only think of The movie "Talledega Nights: The ballad of Ricky Bobby" where Will Ferrell whose a Nascar racer crashes his car, and then goes completely berserkers, running around all over the course, and undressing himself and all, all the while screaming, "Save me, lord. Save me, Jesus. Save me, Tom Cruise - use your witchcraft and save me!" I bet Tom Cruise didn't find that bit funny. Who knows, maybe the Scientology guys are conspiring against you, Mark. But anyhow, that part in the movie kills me everytime, though.

              LOL, I aint afraid.  I purchased a Universal Chastity Belt last summer while on my intergalactic vacation.  It totally came with a guarantee.

              It says it is guaranteed to protect my as* against anal probes or my money back. big_smile

          For real, I never heart that! And for South Park, too? Cruise is losing it for this Scientology thing, ain't he! You know the episode of South Park, that is?

          And Chef quit the show.  I did not know prior to that incident that Isaac Hayes was a Scientologist.

                Surely you mean "gone to his reward."? lol

                  I'm not sure where Scientologists go.  Do they get back on the space ship?

        The only way Mark can know for sure is if he wakes up one morning with some discomfort around his anus in fear he had been probed.  LOL

    I assume they are selling the same thing all the other religions sell. Only it is more expensive from them. lol

    I tried reading a Hubbard book, once - quite possibly the worst book I have ever read. Managed to get about quarter of the way through before using it to light the fire. smile

    I've had quite a Scientology adverts Mr Knowles. I'm now inverted.

    And I'm great at chemistry.

    Scientology - the only religion that goes hand in glove with science. And Sci-fi. And let's not forget the Aliens big_smile

    I've got a theory that Scientology was originally created to be a metaphor for all religion and the ridiculousness of religious beliefs, kinda like the flying spaghetti monster, but it started to make a great profit so Hubbard just went with it.

    We'll never know now.

    I do believe there is a middle ground where Christians and Atheists can find a compromise.

      YES!!!! Finally a compromise! big_smile

    I loved the video. I had never seen it before.

    More than twenty years ago, I used to enter writing contests for L Ron Hubbard's, "Writers of the Future." At that time, I had no knowledge of Scientology.

    Incredibly, there is still mail sent to my mother's address (where I stayed at that time) for me regarding the contests and Scientology.

    Do you know what the scary part is, though? I get e-mails from them! Obviously, I did not have an e-mail address when I wrote those short stories.

    The whole concept is absolutely preposterous, particularly when one digs in to its "administrative procedures" and how it takes all the worldly goods of its subscribers (except Mr Cruise, of course!)
