    Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    For the reasons explained in the Scientology-Cult article Connecting the dots, it appears the new Independent Scientology (IS) symbol or logo is:

    You can see it in use at the IS Independent’s Day Weekend:

    Also in this picture of Independent Scientologists:

    .

    According to the Scientology-Cult article Connecting the dots, the symbol was derived as follows:

    is it just me or does it look really similar to the 'wikileaks' logo?

    Which may not be an accident.

    Re: Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    Its catchy I kinda like it.
    Not overly complex, and conveys an unexplainable ineluctable idea simply and clearly.
    Not confusing or vertigo inducing at all.
    Not like that fucking volcano.
    I hate volcanoes.
    And manhole covers.
    Tattoos for everyone!

    Re: Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    I'm trying to discipline myself not to make editorial or judgmental remarks in the body of my OP cross-posts. Trying to be an honest news cross-poster.

    But as a comment, I will say that I am rather impressed by the new IS logo. Leaving aside matters of taste, I think it shows a degree of sophistication that the COS would be well to take note. Moreover, I think it does a good job of retaining a symbolic, emotional or almost subliminal link to COS and prior Scientology symbols while being different and also communicating something about the IS movement.

    YMMV of course.

    should anon come too?
  17. Kha Khan Member

    Re: Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    What event? If you mean the IS Independent’s Day Weekend, it is already over, it appears a COS PI "attended," and I don't think Anon was invited.

    Re: Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    whether or not anon was invited is beside the point

    but god fucking damn it

    It certainly seems to suggest that touching the Eighth Dynamic requires Independence.

    "If I told you what it takes
    to reach the highest high,
    You'd laugh and say 'nothing's that simple'
    But you've been told many times before
    Messiahs pointed to the door
    And no one had the guts to leave the temple!"

    Not bad, the transposing of the black and white.

    Would have been way better if they had spelled ' Independent Scientologists' correctly, tho.















    Joking....I hope at least one person double looked.

    Re: Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    Something not very independent about it all once you have a logo. Marty et al are beginning to worry me.

    Would be nice if he made some clear statements about where they stand with regard to things like suing what we used to conveniently call 'organised Scientology' [but that term would seemingly include so-called 'independent Scientology', since they're getting so organised.]

    And where do they stand with regard to all the cult real-estate. Do hey see themselves as the natural and automatic heirs to the property portfolio when DM runs away?

    today a Logo.. tomorrow Softball uniforms...
  29. Kha Khan Member

    Re: Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    LOL, you know what? I wouldn't be entirely surprised if we saw IS logo softball uniforms.

    Why? Because Marty is clearly trying to hearken back back to a (perhaps mythical; Tory "Magoo" Christman and some other old-timers would disagree) time when Scientology was "fun." When, as I've heard (I wasn't there then) people actually went to Church and played and listened to others playing guitar without being regged or having their children recruited into the Sea Org. As I said, some say this was mythical, others disagree, but the important thing is that Marty is clearly promoting the radical idea that the practice of Scientology does not necessary have to be constant war and a painful drag.

    IS logo softball uniforms coming to your neighborhood soon. :D

    As far as logos go, I have seen worse.

    A nice logo does not confer legitimacy upon a flawed philosophy, however.

    Re: Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    this is what we've been saying since the fucking beginning

    scientology is a con, and a dangerous con at that, somewhere between snake oil and radithor in terms of how dangerous and worthless it is

    but chanology would not exist if the scilons had never taken down the tom cruise video, and it wouldn't have lasted this long if it wasn't for the humans rights abuses and shit

    if it weren't for the abuses and if scientology was a friendly neighborhood space alien cult instead of a massive, festering boil on the shit-stained ass of religious communities worldwide, all they'd have to worry about is lolxenu jokes

    if marty can successfully reform scientology into a hugbox cult instead of a shakedown cult, then i can guarantee at least half of the critics would become bored of the anti-scientology movement and move on to FLDS or westboro... or, you know, posting triforces like oldfags

    Back in the old days of Orange County, I would go sit near the koi pond and watch the koi. They still have the pond.

    That's not exactly "fun" for most people, but it worked for me.

    Re: Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    I note that the 'world' clip-art that dots the 'i' in the logo is centred upon Cuba.

    Coincidence? Or is Mahty expecting a long vacation in Guantanamo?

    Re: Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    My first reaction when I saw it was "infinity" and "earth", which I suppose is appropriate for scientology. It's a lot better than the cults cross and the treiangles.

    Re: Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    Indeed. They need a mission statement to achieve that...

    Re: Independent Scientology Symbol or Logo

    "Fun" moments may have existed for some, but I think L. Ron Hubbard, Jr. and many others would disagree.
    The regging came later, Kha. The con game at that time had more subtlety built into it.
    Delusion and fraud make up the basis for scientology, so Marty boy promotes the garbage that Hubbard invented to make money, make money, and make more money.
