  • I agree with those that said it is no different then Christianity or any other religion. None of it makes sense and is just as made-up sounding to me. And there is just as much proof for other religions as there is for Scientology.

  • I just never knew it was this silly. I mean an alien overlord named Xenu? Alien spirits attached to your body? WTF?

  • To me it isn't any different than believing in something like Christianity and that someone died for all of us thousands of years ago, and now we must all worship him and believe and go by every single word in the bible. Everyone has their own views and opinions.

  • I used to know a woman that believed the aliens had put out the call to come down here and kill all world leaders to promote peace. That it was just a matter of time before they showed up to complete their mission. Apparently she belonged to a group, complete with 'guru', that believed this.

    After hearing her theory, Scientologist seemed kinda tame!

  • *cough* If this was the first time you'd ever heard of Christianity, you'd think it was insane too.

  • Hey now... I totally agree with the Christianity thing... crazy man... totally loco. I don't think I'll be able to look at Tom Criuse ever again without picturing him holding two asparagus cans and trying no to lie. I just don't understand how any sane person can think any of this is true. It was MADE up by a SCIENCE FICTION writer- that right there should be a clue that it's FAKE. *shakes head in amazement*
