Good stuff, things seem to be really moving against this sham 'Religion'.
Wonder if the article mentions how Hubbard's autopsy revealed he was full of the psychiatric drug Vispiral ?
Scientologists are mainly hypocrites of the highest order.
Wow. Tommy Davis's finest moment.
i'd bang your new avatar anytime Miranda. Anyways...good article or so it seems
Nothing like a good old fashioned interrobang! *burps*
It just keeps getting better and better.
People should report this obvious case of "stolen valor" used for financial gain.
What's interrobang? I really don't know.
Ask your parents.
Or if your parents have disowned you because we are all criminals here, ask Urban Dictionary
"Of course, if it's true that Mr. Hubbard was never injured during the war, then he never did heal himself using Dianetics principles, then Dianetics is based on a lie, and then Scientology is based on a lie."
Yeah--he's outdone himself.
Did anyone else notice that this could be a chink in the cult's brainwashing of Tommy?
He made the statement "Scientology is wrong if X" which in itself is an extremely gutsy statement for a victim of Scientology brainwashing to make, especially to a reporter.
X was shown to him.
His response was to invoke some great imaginary conspiracy to deny X, but I think that the damage to his brainwashing armor has been done.
Miranda don't need this^, she needs a severe tongue-lashing in a figure 8 configuration
This was on NPR tonight. I had to pull over, cheer loudly and celebrate. This is to be celebrated! http://www.npr.org/2011/02/08/133561256/the-church-of-scientology-fact-checked
A quotation to remember.
I will say that again.
A quotation to remember.
Lol, this article will make so many people so delightfully assmad. I love it.
It's strange that he refers to scientology as a 'religion' that people are 'drawn to because of faith'. Thought he might have a better understanding considering his previous work. Scientology is a fundamentalist group that uses thought reform and training routines to radicalise people it recruits.
I got the impression he was being meticulously respectful. Maybe even ironic. His fact-checking speaks for itself and is a lot more devastating than generalized accusations of brainwashing, etc., which can sound paranoid even if true. He's a superb example of how to do it right in my opinion.
I still say the proper meaning of "Interrobang" can be adduced if you overstrike the letter 't' onto the 'n' that precedes it.
How did I know that was you?
I love this article.
Yeah, the message is stronger in this condensed form. As long as it stays visible, most people will draw the obvious conclusions.
Good one. Too much on Hubbard's phony naval exploits and not enough meat about how there's no such thing as a God damn engram, but it'll do.
in compliance with teh tech it's being done on a gradient, like the frog who didn't jump out of the heating pot soon enough.
Because of LRHs feeble mind and concepts of learning, he created the flawed concept of gradients. The unfortunate adherents have their intellect and vocabulary stunted, not to mention free will.
Melbourne protest tomorrow - Saturday down here - ! yippee ! let's get 'em
I don't think people really need to be told that there's no such thing as an engram.
Look, I don't care for the metric system any more than you do, but that's no reason to stick your head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist! An engram is about two-thirds of an emgram. That's how gram-negative bacteria are differentiated from the gram-positive. And this is not even mentioning the well-known Continental equivalent of pound cake, the gram cracker.
Shining a spotlight on the latest news
Scientology FBI Investigation
Scientology Under FBI Investigation – Scientology under FBI investigation for human trafficking and free labor.
