Should we write letters to other scientific/skeptic orgs? The very name of scientology lends credibility to the organization just because it contains some variation of the word "science." I was thinking, if we got some reputable scientific organizations, to petition them to make an official statement like "scientology != science, we are scientists we say so." A few places I have thought about writing to include the James Randi Education foundation (Skeptic's organization). http://www.randi.org/ Another (perhaps less likely) place could be the American Chemical Society Office of Legislation and Government Affairs: http://portal.acs.org/portal/acs/co...pageLabel=PP_POLICY&node_id=135&use_sec=false This place usually deals with the government's policy on science education, but I think they might take umbrage to scientology's tax evasion techniques. Also, as evidenced by this thread: http://forums.enturbulation.org/viewtopic.php?t=1056&highlight=psychiatric organization a psychiatry organization might have a thing or two to say about scientiology and the harm it might have done to members like Lisa McPherson. http://www.psych.org/ Let me know if any of you think this is a good idea. I think getting a reputable organization to back your claims that scientology, either the organization or belief structure, is a load of crap, can do some good. On the other hand, if no one thinks they will really do anything, I won't waste my time writing letters to them, and I'll just stick with writing to senator/congress.
