With superhuman focus, intensity and courageous commitment, I somehow managed to watch the first three minutes and forty-five seconds.
One of the most cringefully creepy things I have ever seen.
And magnifying that by a factor of 1,000,000 is the nearly continuous nervous "knowing"...
Nice guarantee! But the rest of the great guarantees from Scientology were somehow omitted.
"From there, I will manipulate your mind so it's completely unrecognizable. . . "
Yes, I do realize that posting that makes me an SP that needs to be utterly destroyed or (ideally) murdered. I can...
excerpts from that article...
"The church has claimed it has 8 million members worldwide, with about a third of those in the U.S., but many critics have suggested there are between 25,000 and 55,000 active Scientologists."
"It’s hard to say exactly how many people practice Scientology in...
Yes HIP HIP!! LOL.
I'd like to solve that puzzle, Alex: "What is—Hip-Hip-Hyp-ocrisy?"
"Scientology will achieve a world without insanity, criminals
and war—when mankind achieves a world without Scientology."

Thanks so much for that link to Bonhoeffer's brilliant insights on the nature of Stupidity!
So many great quotes from his work, but the one you mentioned rises above all. . .
"Stupidity is NOT an intellectual defect but a moral one."
Considering the inordinate amount of time Scientologists...
Thanks for the link!
Here is one of my favorite excerpts from Cipolla's FIVE BASIC LAWS OF STUPID.
The first basic law of human stupidity asserts without ambiguity that:
Always and inevitably everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation. At first, the statement...
That four quadrant chart (above) depicting the role of stupid people on earth is a truly marvelous tool, ain't it?
It handles perhaps 80% of all the confusion people have about CULTS and POLITICS and TECHNOLOGY and PHILOSOPHY and much more. People erringly assume someone that is extremely...
SUPER-STUPIDEST MOMENTS IN SCIENTOLOGY
thread presents some invaluable information on stupid!
First the BOOK. . .
Next comes the CHART defining exactly
what a Stupid Person is and
how you can identify them.
Finally, here's a short video to add some

"WHAT HAPPENS IN LAS VEGAS STAYS IN LAS VEGAS ORG'S
SACREDLY SACROSANCT RELIGIOUS CONFESSIONAL FORMULARIES WITH
ABSOLUTE CONFIDENTIALITY PROTECTIONS UNDER PRIEST PENITENT PRIVILEGE"
(UNLESS YOU LATER COMMIT THE 'HIGH CRIME' OF DISAGREEING, BLOWING OR WHISTLEBLOWING)
If the NOI adherents faithfully follow all the outstanding advice they are receiving from both the NOI and the COS, there would in fact be very pro-survival improvements that would result from applying the book SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL to their lives.
For starters, the NOI faithful would begin...
For the curious, that is the world's biggest cruise ship, "SYMPHONY OF THE SEAS"
(wikipedia): "...she can accommodate 5,518 passengers at double occupancy up to a maximum capacity of 6,680 passengers, as well as a 2,200-person crew. There are 16 decks for guest use, 22 restaurants, 4...
ANSWER: Yes! And the good news is you are invited to a very special VIP briefing on the new IDEAL SHIP the church plans to buy!
Easily big enough to house 10,000 public! But with triple occupancy in each room (bunkbeds) the ship can hold a crew of 2000 staff as well as ALL of the...
After reading your insightful post, another way of thinking about it occurred to me:
SCIENTOLOGISTS EXCLUSIVELY STUDY SCIENTOLOGY THEORY
EX-SCIENTOLOGISTS AND WHISTLEBLOWERS
EXCLUSIVELY STUDY SCIENTOLOGY PRACTICAL
The above scholarly endeavors are in fact two (2) entirely different...
