    Believe it or Not....

    Even though a few Scientologists believe, the rest of the world does not.

    People in the real world (that use real facts and real numbers) do not even pay attention to Scientology's frantic hyperbolic fake stats.

    Example: According to Bridge Publications, 83 million copies of Dianetics were sold in the forty years after publication. (1. wikipedia 2. Harris, Daniel (July 2, 1989). "Scientology's best seller". New York Post: p. 39.)

    Scientology has reduced itself to the punchline of a joke. Scientologists don't notice that everyone is laughing at them--it's not what they believe they see--super theta VVGI's beings, blowing case and line charging. No, fellas, not exactly.
    (Hint to Scientologists: Hey, keep working on those Obnosis drills--you ain't there quite yet).

    Hmmmmm, let's see......self-proclaimed supernatural beings (Clears & OT's) working for 60 years to save the planet thru dissemination of Ron's books. Just how much impact have they had compared to other booksellers?

    Here is the actual list of most published books which Scientology does not even appear on....

    Of the actual books sold I wonder how many have been read. Bought a second hand edition on ebay for a pound about three months ago. I'm a third of the way through. Talk about a book you really can put down.

    If Scientologists were not such incorrigible liars ("...over 80 million copies"), Dianetics might have actually made it onto that list, just above a real book that really did sell 80M copies:

    "Le Petit Prince"

    Perhaps a more honest title than Dianetics Modern Science of Mental Health would have helped Ron...

    "Le Petit Pimp"​

    DMSMH claims that all events in life are recorded in memory even when a person is unconscious. This has been proven to be wrong.

    Even Hitler sold 10 million copies of his self-help book Mein Kampf.

    What's wrong Ronnie?

    You need better positioning or something. In the next publishing, what about relocating them in the self-hell section and calling it?

    Ironically, this fact is not known to Scientologists who are unconscious and engramically recording every word that Ron is saying.

    reference please?

    Please provide the study that has proven this....

    In exchange, I will try to pull up the studies that prove that people that are unconscious or knocked out by anesthesia still hear and can remember what went on around them while they were out.

    I have provided that URL before. Do you want me to provide it again?
    (I'll look it up again if you want me to. It was a test in the 1950s.)

    And I hope that YOU can provide Peer-reviewed science Pubs that prove Scientology beliefs and practices to be correct.

    Would that be fair?

    I can ask you some Dianetics questions and see if you can provide peer-reviewed science Pubs that prove it.

    But, but...but...What about the brief breath in eternity for the agonized future of every man, woman and.....wait--

    Oh, never mind. That's wayyyyy cuter and more fun than being driven insane in a terror-cult.

    When is the next Pokey Little Puppy cult meeting. See ya there! :D

    Not so fast!

    Of course that scientific experiment didn't work because if you read the fine print, the Scientologist was drugged by Psychs. Did you not see that they rendered the poor fellow unconscious? And you approve of such barbarity??

    How more obvious can it how they conspired to sabotage Ron's gift to mankind?

    Clearly you have not studied the body of Hubbard's scientific research where he discovered that the engram theory does not require testing because it is a self-evident truth.

    Instead of using Dianetics crap, why don't we use a this wiki article as a launching point for further lookup?

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

    Then we can criticise from there? Okay?

    Since I have never made any foolish scientific claims about Scientology or Dianetics, I am under no obligation to support my non-existent claims with any such citations.

    I will respond to the post with your citation after I have studied it and done some homework.

    Do you have a view that requires people that don't believe Hubbard's writings in DMSMH to prove their views ... But anyone who is a freezoner does not have to prove anything? C'Mon. Take a look at what you are doing.
