    So Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting divorced. No suprise there. :rolleyes:

    It was reported on a local outlet, and one of the comments made reference to Xenu. Being the curious sort I am, I had to put my googlefu to work.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenu

    Xenu ([​IMG] /ˈzn/ ZEE-noo),[1][2][3] also spelled Xemu, was, according to the founder of Scientology L. Ron Hubbard, the dictator of the "Galactic Confederacy" who, 75 million years ago, brought billions[4][5] of his people to Earth in a DC-8-like spacecraft, stacked them around volcanoes and killed them using hydrogen bombs. Official Scientology scriptures hold that the essences of these many people remained, and that they form around people in modern times, causing them spiritual harm.

    :eek::eek::eek:

    On the outside, the beliefs sound resonable enough. Family, devotion, caring for others, helping the community, etc. Get out the shovel, and holy moly! :confused:

    Well, it's a religion founded by a science fiction writer. From what I recall hearing, the whole idea of Scientology started as a joke. Then they duped some rich fools out of their money and so it goes.

    Anyone who believes a "religion" that would have you eating an umbilical cord, has a very serious problem, and it isn't just that you have a taste for wild game meat.

    Just another cult. Any religion that does not have Jesus as the center is a cult. The truth hurts some times. As long as life is in us, there is time to change the path that we walk.

    L Ron wrote that we are descendants of aliens who lit here on earth long ago, with racial memories of our lives as Thetans. We can't get to those memories because our minds have become clouded, but the nice folks at Scientology will CLEAR those clouds away - for a price.
    MANY countries have outlawed them, but the good ole USA wouldn't dream of stopping a con job who calls itself a religion - -

    Whack jobs, to the max -

    My son did some work for them awhile back. He went to use the head and some clown rushed in and started jumping on him for not having an escort. The guy cleaned the sink and told him only members can use this bathroom and he must be escorted at all times. wtf kinda crap is that? hiding something? I can see a Jim Jones for them in the future or some kinda nutty stunt they fall for. Religion? um, I dont think so. They have more nuts than Jimmy Carter.

    From what I hear, they have a big legal dept. constantly on the lookout for the unauthorized distribution of their literature in violation of copywrite? It's not easy to say anything against them if you don't know what they stand for.

    What they stand for is public knowledge -
    The copyrights they guard so jealously are the works they sell to members for HIGH fees that will remove the clouds from their minds and allow them to remember suppressed racial memories -

    I read that she got tired of wearing the cub scout uniform to bed.

    Scientology is the ultimate and perfect scam: it teaches that everything bad that happens to people is not their fault, it's caused by outside forces (body thetans) so nobody ever has to be responsible for the stupid decisions they make or the stupid actions they do in their life.

    They also teach people that problems like schizophrena, bipolar disorder, depression, autism, etc should not be treated medically and that the medical profession is trying to control them through drugs.

    The result is people with serious medical problems going untreated like Tom Cruise and Travolta's kid who died from a fatal siezure.

    IMHO, adults of age should be able to join any cult they desire but their kids should be protected from it. I applaud what Katie Holmes did.


    FYI:

    If you study the history of Scientology, it started out as "The Modern Science of Mental Health" which is to say had a scientific spin. It only mutated into a religion when they realized that would help them avoid paying taxes on the astounding amounts of money they were extorting from the idiots who followed them.

    no scientology and vodoo arent the same.Vodoo works for the believers.It is still practiced in deep south louisianna.Tales of the loupan,rogaroo and other supernatural things are still believed.Believe me,I have seen many things in the swamp at night I didnt believe.Maybe they were wild imaginations of a young boy who was told tales maybe not.I havent been proven otherwise.

    I never had to be hypnotized, or pay any amount of money, etc, to be a member of the Catholic Church.
