    But there's a point here that I have to ask you scientologists out there, or anybody with knowledge of the subject. There was a port ...[text shortened]... cavemen.

    Is this scientology? It was too damn funny, but I think they were kind of serious.
    We had a scientologist here a while ago, but we gave him such a hard time that quit offering himself up as a target.

    But yes, it's all true. It's a whole galactic space opera type of thing. The big villian is called Xenu. There was something about volcanoes and intergalactic genocide, or some such rot. Go to Wikipedia and check it out. They've got a good rundown on the whole shebang.

    All you Christian guys, I'm sorry. This stuff almost - almost - makes you look sane.
    This actually makes the FSM - Flying Spaghetti Monster - look plausible.

    I had no idea Scientologists were complete wack jobs. I thought they were just greedy. But no, they're stupid too.

    To be fair to them, you've got to be a Level III Super-Thetan or some bullshit like that before you find out about Xenu.
    Another great South Park was about the Mormans... I wish I didn't miss the show last night, it's where I get most of my history lessons these days.

    Someone should give that old thread a bump. It was a classic.

    I just finished reading the rather large wikipedia entry. I had no idea about this either, but then I freely admit to not following religions of any kind very closely. Or at all really.

    Amazing that anyone could buy that load of BS and actually follow it.

    in 1976 i was walking around and saw a church of scientology with a sign that said free evaluation test.i took the test and then an examiner went over it with me,at the time i was amazed by how insightfull the evaluation was.it seemed that the guy really knew what made me tick,the dude recomended several l ron hubbard books for me to buy and read.i kind of kicked it there and was reading some of the literature.i over heard 2 other examiners interview two or three other tests with other subjects.they said virtually the same basic generalised statements that i was told.then i realised it was a psychological trick.so i left with a smile and a broader knowlege of the world.

    Just like fortune tellers. Keep it so broad it could apply to anyone, coupled with leading questions, etc, etc.

    The tobacco shop I work at is right next to the giant Scientology center in Hollywood. They come in all the time. Their outfits are based on naval outfits because L. Ron Hubbard started a fleet of Scientology ships or something. They deny knowing anything about all that Xenu stuff and the alien stuff, but that could be either because they are too low in rank or because I am too low in rank.

    They are a force for order in the neighborhood which is nice. Their security guys are around keeping an eye on things in our lower class druggie neighborhood and will respond to locals quickly while LAPD takes forever to show up when something happens.

    They don't believe tobacco causes cancer. They say it can irritate engrams or something which then causes the cancer, but if you're free of the engrams that's not an issue. Proof? Well, if tobacco caused cancer, all smokers would get cancer! And we know that's not true...

    Of course psychology is totally worthless and harmful in their opinion. I think the conspiracy theories say psychologists are Xenu's agents or something that are keeping us under control.

    Yes, very part time. I work Mondays and occasionally an hour here or there.

    I think I saw a movie on this one time with my cousins husband and I was kept saying how good a "MOVIE" it was and being a Christian he got more and more upset or angry?....as the movie unfolded.I was at university doing some studies partly on genetics and I seemed to grasp those concepts with a lot more ease.I thought it was a sci-fi comedy and when I found out it was an actual religion I knew....I was right!One of the more enjoyable movies I have seen....none the less.

    This episode aired again last night at 11pm. What a crack up! I like how Tom, John, and R. Kelly ended up in the closet. At the end, all that 'sue me', 'Go ahead, sue me!'

    Scientologist are known to sue anyone going against them with the finest lawyers. They have cake out the butt. Did anyone notice the credits for that episode?
