Science? tology?

For anyone who doesn't know, Scientology it is the religion founded by science fiction writer L. Ron. Hubbard, (*recognised in the united states*) who's church is run as a well oiled capitalistic machine. It's product? Confusing the "souls" of the confused, and then leeching them of their financial assets. Whilst borrowing them of their social worth and self, of course. They gain a lot of their ammunition from the donations of their followers, the followers are required to give 10% of their yearly income in donation to the church to maintain there membership. They also make some pretty pennies selling Hubbard's books and scientific sounding "readings of stress" to their victims.

Poor marketing?

Recently, well actually since the early beginnings of early 2009's hubs about science, and religiosity have been flooded with Scientology ads. If you've seen them, which you probably should of by now. If you haven't god knows you will sooner and later, and when you do, pause at their remarkable vagueness and deliberate misuse of language to lure people into associating it's dogma with the sane. So here is my question:Do you think that the advertisers hired by church of scientology are incapable making structured ideas or do you believe that the reason the use such a vague and patronising approach i s because their target audience, is one who is easily moved by such notions? Think about it.

      If their ads had not shown up on one of my ehow articles a few weeks ago I never would have known what you are writing about.
