    Are any thorough & balanced?

    People always have and always will raise their children in their own chosen religion with good intentions. Enlightened or non fundamentalist parents allow their children to make their own choice about religion or faith when they come of age. That's life. My mother put me in Sunday School when I...

    Are any thorough & balanced?

    Many people change their opinions and beliefs over time. Whether they need to be apologetic about promoting their previous beliefs would be a matter of opinion, I think. It would apply to all "apostates" across the board. No doubt some exes regret recruiting people into scn but for the most part...

    Are any thorough & balanced?

    It would be interesting to see what the specific methodology of Mind Walking is but the website is mostly in German with limited English translation and doesn't seem to go into specifics. All I can gather from the videos here is that it's mostly solo auditing and if you get bogged or experience...

    thank yo ISNOINews

    ISNOINews makes every attempt to remain objective and unbiased in his reporting which is refreshing journalism these days. When he offers an opinion it's almost always outside of the factual reporting.

    Are any thorough & balanced?

    I watched the video at 1.75 playback speed and it was totally intelligible. The caption feature was surprisingly accurate which is a nice modern tech feature which allows deaf people to participate in the conversation. Any ex scn would see the similarities to scn with rewording of scn specific...

    The book "Neuromatic: Or, A Particular History of Religion and the Brain" addresses Scientology, among other topics

    I did some reading of the "Look Inside" feature on Amazon. It would take a lot of study to see exactly what he's getting at but just as a guess I think he's making a comparison to the idea that all things "supernatural" are products of computations in the brain being investigated by science in...

    Indy Scientologist Andy Nolch - Not A Scientologist Anymore

    I certainly agree his actions were insensitive, vulgar and crude. He says the reason he did it is that the tragic incident was being used to promote feminism and a degradation of men which is part of a larger globalist communist conspiracy to take over the world. He says he wrote an apology...

    Indy Scientologist Andy Nolch - Not A Scientologist Anymore

    The people doing the interview are mocking him. He knows it and is playing along and mostly being facetious.

    Indy Scientologist Andy Nolch - Not A Scientologist Anymore

    He's deeply affected by the police state takeover where he lives. That's not unusual and he's not alone. It seems he's blown for good with the exception of maybe continuing to entertain notions of extraterrestrial life and past lives which is also not unusual and beliefs shared by many others.

    The Rhetoric and Master Plan of Dianetics and Scientology

    Wow! That line put me on a trip down memory lane! As someone who lived through and participated in the "psychedelic revolution", Professor Timothy Leary suggested an alternate approach, namely turning on with LSD. Whether it was ethos, pathos or logos, it was certainly appealing at the time...

    Ex Scientologist

    I have a similar outlook on scn and to an extent on life in general. Some things are just so absurd that I just laugh. It's a different type of a sense of humor and occasionally I'll see something which most people would consider awful but it just makes me laugh for the total absurdity of it...

    Ex Scientologist

    First of all, Welcome LaffyH_!! Your post reminded me of something. I had the idea from somewhere in scn that free wheeling had the implication of uncontrollable or unstoppable thinking, most likely on a single train of thought. This might happen to a scn who was conditioned to auditing and...

    Between lives elapsed time?

    I was about to say the same or similar thing. Concepts like Heaven, Valhalla and numerous other concepts would need to exist in another "dimension". Also, if I accept that the universe is over 13 billion years old then estimating a "return time" in earth years brings up the prospect of tens or...

    Between lives elapsed time?

    In Hubbardism/Scientology it's "explained" that people merely associated in any way with the famous person assume the "valence" in scn lingo or identity in King's English of the famous person. Just saying.
