What you saw in South Park is actaully pretty acurate. Why do you think there was such a huge stink about it. Once you step back and look at the way it is run and handled you can see why most people don't get it. The idea is that the more money you give the higher level, and more praise you will get. That is why FAMOUS RICH people are at the top and poor people are not part of it.

Actually, the read on Wikipedia is VERY interesting. As an outsider to their belief system, I'm a little hazy on how spaceships that look like DC-8 airliners brought everyone's souls here 6000 years ago, or how an audit actually cleanses one's self, or the aliens with nuclear bombs and volcanos....

It's been interestingly worked into Nip/Tuck, too. That's been fun to watch unfold. Fictional work though it is, a lot of what I've seen there seems to match up closely with the documentation I've read.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ed_to_as_cults

You know, to say that believing that Aliens planted us here is really not any less reasonable to say that a magical omnipotent being magic'd us into existence.

It's just not.


In fact, I would be much more inclined to believe that we're some kind of experiment that I would be to believe that Jesus will send me to hell if I don;t believe in him.


Even if that's not the actual belief system of scientology.

Scientology appears to me as just another episode of Star Trek.

Did you even read the whole article on Wikipedia? I'm willing to bet it's as detailed of an answer as you're going to get here froggy.

I am not Scientologist. Scientology is one of the few "religions" I cannot be tolerant of because it is purely a system started to take advantage of the ignorant and people that are so ready to swallow such a facade because they are eager to connect with someone who appears to reach out to them only to drain them of their wealth.
