I ordered it for Kindle on my iPhone. It's available electronically on Amazon.
Not in Australia
Oh, shit. Libel laws?
EDIT: I could loan it to you if you had a Kindle. But that requires amazon accounts. Know anyone where it's available that could loan it to you?
I have a kindle but have never 'loaned' a book using one before
I had trouble getting it on my Kindle yesterday. Turned it on today and there it is, woot.
Reading it now. So far, I like it.
Checked it out - loan facility available to US customers only...thx anyway
That sucks dingo balls.
Some hard cover available for shipping to Europe & AU through 3rd party Ebay sellers (but looks like you'll pay a premium price)
Dont know if this has been posted before
CSI have put up a website disputing a lot of the book
Warning COS site http://www.lawrencewrightgoingclear.com
They obviously had a lot of people working on this oh wait they probably had a few sea orgers working 24/7
I wonder if they would be sec checked after reading the book
EDIT: There are many more chapter rebuttals. Let me know if you want all of them. My eyes are burning.
Yeah, from Feb 1986 onward, not a one!
Chapter 1 EDIT: Anyone suggest how I can remove the italics? I've tried different fonts and applying the ital tag button to no avail.
LOL, that website looks so cheap.... I'm sure nobody is going to take that serious! They could've atleast use an Wordpress Template or something!
I'm gonna ask them to just email me the Word files next time.
They also shooped Larry's photo to make him look evil.
Here's the original image:
Let's see... Professor Touretzky, researches in computer science, robotics, electrical engineering...
No, I think that you're wrong there.
My daughter made an emeter (lie detector) with the electronics kit she got for Christmas. I'm sure the good doctor can unravel that piece o' shite.
SORRY gotta redo a couple of these. Their links are fuxored.
Chapter 11 (last)
Is it worth spending any time rebutting the Scientology corporation's arguments against Wright's book? It might save some work for journalists, and prevent them from blindly publishing the company's lies.
I doubt the website will be seen by many people. Its not in the best interest of the church to publicise the book any more than it already is. The site exists so they can say the enturbulation has been handled.
If anyone is a member of scientology facebook groups it might be a good idea to post a link to the site. It is a COS site so they cant complain of entheta. It might cause some to do further research
The Buffalo org isn't new. It was previously opened in 2003 by Miscavige himself. (San Jose too?)
Is he having blackouts and memory problems?
We're doing grand re openings after the second person comes through the doors.
New? Ummm....I did my first scientology course (the "HAS" course) at the Buffalo org forty years ago in early 1973.
Then I guess the "new" opening is a grand re re opening for the third person to walk though the door, me being the first 40 years ago.
That site seems to be full of CoS claims that were exploded years ago. (I don't think that they ever really won a case on the "make a million dollars: start a religion" Hubbard quote, and they've certainly lost quite a few.)
It'd be nice to drop factual napalm on them, but they're going to repeat the same claims over and over, no matter how many times they are disproved.
The new org building was opened in 2003. The old one was torn down by the city for a highway off-ramp. The city gave them a large amount of money for it, that they used to buy a smaller building. The money was enough to buy the building and refurbish it twice over, but they also tapped some Buffalo whales for more funds. (Setting the pattern for all later Ideal Org funding frauds.)
It's the "new org" claim of the 2012 reboot of the Buffalo org in the same building that doesn't make the slightest bit of sense even by Scientology standards.
HoHoHo My head hurts from reading that, so in the first section they say we are growing, opening "churches", film studios, printing loads of books blah blah blah and...and...really we have done fuck all to help anyone. We are so great that one book can cause us so many problems
Priceless lulz is priceless. However, I find it interesting they did it this way - as a standalone blog copyrighted by CSI - rather than using their usual Freedom rag mag venue where Wright was previously slammed for the New Yorker profile.
