Did you have to ask that? Have you seen the human race lately?

No, I reckon, I didn't have to ask that. Yes, I have seen the human race lately. However, what I have seen is not indicative of all humans.

So, you are saying Scientology is the equivalent to Star War's prequel flicks compared to Christianity's original Star Wars flicks?

I could go with that.

Blaen >> something like that. Large fan base, but more seem to like the first story better. And there is a lot of people among those fans arguing for their storys supremacy or overwhelmingly better special effects, annoying people who just enjoy the story without feeling the need to dress up like boba fett.

Are you implying that I don't buy it because I am a product of Christianity?

But do they provide protection against temptation and evil, Sixshooter? Do they fend off evil influences and make the wearer stand firmly for the right?

....Holy Brainy, I see what you did there.

I read this article when it came out. I guess Paul Haggis stirred things up by airing a lot of Scientology's core beliefs. Long article, but you can skim it for the mythology stuff.

Xenu ain't half of it, this stuff's just utterly WTF.

http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2...fa_fact_wright

eg -

“A major cause of mankind’s problems began 75 million years ago,” the Times wrote, when the planet Earth, then called Teegeeack, was part of a confederation of ninety planets under the leadership of a despotic ruler named Xenu. “Then, as now, the materials state, the chief problem was overpopulation.” Xenu decided “to take radical measures.” The documents explained that surplus beings were transported to volcanoes on Earth. “The documents state that H-bombs far more powerful than any in existence today were dropped on these volcanoes, destroying the people but freeing their spirits—called thetans—which attached themselves to one another in clusters.” Those spirits were “trapped in a compound of frozen alcohol and glycol,” then “implanted” with “the seed of aberrant behavior.” The Times account concluded, “When people die, these clusters attach to other humans and keep perpetuating themselves.”
