This appears to be directed at me. I can't tell for sure because you are never direct or clear but, based on your previous comments to me, it appears you think you are talking about me.<snip>
This was a response to an "It's ALL bad" person, who was making accusations and arguing with me. It was an attempt to coax him into admitting that, at least, there was one itsy bitsy thing that was "good." It might have been a good idea, a good experience, or a good person.
He interpreted this as an attempt to say that Scientology was good, which is ridiculous.
This is pretty strange because it isn't me. I have never said "it's ALL bad". I've never claimed that you were trying to say Scientology was good.
I now understand why your previous comments have been so weird. It appears you are arguing with some imaginary "foe" and you fabricate that I'm that foe. Hint: It's not me.
I do understand, very clearly, what you are doing: Trying to get every ex-Scientologist to admit there were some "good bits" of Scientology (and there are "good bits", as many have mentioned -- even on threads not yours).
What I don't understand, and I keep trying to get you to explain, is WHY. Why do keep doing this "admit there are some good bits!!!!!!"? After all previous comments (where people, including me, have said there are "good bits") why has that not fulfilled your needs? You are never satisfied.
What do you want to happen? What hasn't happened that you must accomplish?
What I think you are attempting is that you are trying to "audit" ex-Scientologists: "Recall a time when you found Scientology 'good'". I could be wrong, but it does explain why you keep repeating the command. Your comment, above, that your were attempting "to coax him into admitting that, at least, there was one itsy bitsy thing that was 'good.'" is, apparently, the "cognition" your "auditing" is looking for.<snip>
I spend a few minutes - or sometimes a few seconds - typing in some words with these lurkers in mind. Some of them are likely people under the spell of Scientology.
I'd prefer that they don't hit a wall of "It's all bad" and turn and walk away. I want them to hang around and keep looking. If a person wants "all bad," then there are lots of places he or she can visit.
Very little in life is "all bad," but, it seems, some people are hardwired, particularly, when wounded, to think that way.
And it's understandable that they do, and I sympathize.
If you are trying to "audit" me, I appreciate that you are "trying to help", but I really don't need your "auditing", thanks.
