The un-funny truth about ScientologyMikey 20 comments
There has been a lot of healthy 'debate' on this site between various religious defenders and atheists alike, but if there is one thing we can all agree on it's that Scientology
belongs to crackpots is the least credible of all 'religions'.
As a quick refresher, among other laughable stories, Scientologist believe an alien ruler by the name of Xenu transferred millions of people to Earth 75 million years ago, placed them around volcanos and blew them up with hydrogen bombs. Their souls clustered together and stuck to the bodies of the living and continue to do so today.
If you think that sounds like the sort of stuff you would see in a bad hollywood production, you won't be surprised to know the basis of this 'religion' was made up by Science Fiction author L. Ron Hubbard, so make of that what you will. Moving right along...
This crackpotery is highlighted in the video below with some very scary stories. It makes you wonder how people who appear to be perfectly sane such as Jason Lee, Will Smith and Tom Cruise (OK maybe not Tom Cruise) can be a part of it. It sounds like a realm that belongs to Fundamentalist Scientologists but as far as I know there isn't such a thing.
If there are any Scientologists in our audience we would love to hear from you.
