  1. Re: On free will, fundamentalism and the workability of Scientology

    The answer is yes, but the message is not new.

    It's a naïve expression of views that have been expressed, without the naiveté, years and, in some instances, decades earlier.

  2. Re: Kha Khans - the derail thread on the Saints of Independent $cientology

    I simply asked a question. There was no "tone."

    I mentioned Meta Psychology, then you mentioned the Theta International Movement of which I'm not familiar.

  3. Re: Kha Khans - the derail thread on the Saints of Independent $cientology

    I like the way you stick the knife in then give a compliment.

    Cute.

    But boring.
  4. Re: Kha Khans - the derail thread on the Saints of Independent $cientology

    Tell us about the Theta International Movement. Never heard of it. Please fill us in.



    I'm not taking any such position.

    I listed one spin-off of the AAC.

    The topic has already been...

    Re: Reviews and Media on HBO Documentary Going Clear

    Sometimes it's necessary to call it the "Church of Scientology" so as to identify the subject matter, and so people connect it to those buildings with the words "Church of Scientology," and sometimes...
  6. Re: Kha Khans - the derail thread on the Saints of Independent $cientology

    You still seem to have a problem. Unfortunately, it's nothing that I can help you with.

    Back to the question: I am curious as to the spawned variants or schools.

    The only one that comes to...

    Re: Reviews and Media on HBO Documentary Going Clear

    Corporate Scientology is relentless in its repetition of "Church," "Church," Church," "religion," "religion," "religion," etc., and it has an effect.

    However, it seems that more and more people...

    What is your problem?
  9. Re: At the suggestion of Tom Cruise, Scientology tapped the phones of Nicole Kidman

    What a horrible thing to expose a 16 year old girl's mind to.

    What's amazing is that some people still think that a 16 year old being a "Class VIII" is really cool.

    Please list the groups it spawned.

    Re: Meta body vs. theta body.

    Hi, I was describing Scientology in its early years, notably the period between February 1952 and December 1952.

    Rosicrucianism is a generic term for occult and magic. I provided a link to the...

    Re: Meta body vs. theta body.

    According to Scientology, the theta body is older, and the theta body is synonymous with the thetan, and is not really a body, that's just a figure of speech.



    According to Scientology, a...
  15. Re: VIDEO LEAK: See Former Scientology Official Marty Rathbun Interrogated Under Oath

    It's not unreasonable for the IRS to change a definition - in the direction of tightening a definition - if it realizes that a nefarious group has found a loophole in that definition.

    Can anyone...

    Re: Why Conspiracy Theories Suck

    Well, this has become just another conspiracy thread where people argue - endlessly - about some conspiracy theory or another.

    The reason I sidestepped the broad examination of the tendency to...
  17. Re: VIDEO LEAK: See Former Scientology Official Marty Rathbun Interrogated Under Oath

    Saying he was being obsequious and in propitiation when he wrote that is tantamount to saying he was under duress.

    Re: Why Conspiracy Theories Suck

    I'll side step the greater subject of conspiracy, conspiracies, the "cause effect theory of history," and the idea that the cosmos itself is a kind of conspiracy, and comment only on how this relates...
  19. Re: Kha Khans - the derail thread on the Saints of Independent $cientology

    For Scientologists "the tech" :clap::clap::happydance::clap::clap::clap: is an enormous totem that ascends into the sky and no one can see the top of the totem. It's very impressive to them. Without...

    Someone newly introduced to Scientology is likely to be shown this or a similar quote:

  21. Re: Kha Khans - the derail thread on the Saints of Independent $cientology

    The initial, and most publicized, definition is one who listens.

    Then more is added.

    It's a matter of gradients of deception.

    And yes, there are all sorts of catches and hooks along the way.

    In 1950, L. Ron Hubbard audited Aldous Huxley and his wife on Dianetics. In Huxley's words:

  23. Re: Kha Khans - the derail thread on the Saints of Independent $cientology

    Auditing is an English language word.

    Amongst synonyms listed by Merriam-Webster are: "Examination, going-over, review, scan, scrutiny, view."

    The Latin root word means, "a hearing," or "to...
  24. Re: Wait, the Dalai Lama endorses Scientology front group The Way to Happiness???

    Wow, it didn't take long for this to change topic from corporate Scientology co-opting the Dalai Lama to what a scam bag the Dalai Lama is and what vile sack of pus Tibetan Buddhism is.
