I read the back of Dyanetics (or whatever it's called) and they called him a prophet on the issue I read. I didn't read the book, just the back cover fluff.<quoted text>
I think it's cute.
On another note, I find myself wishing I would live long enough to see the FSM become an actual deity. People are so gullible, I can see it happening.
I read a book recently by the niece of the guy who is in charge of Scientology...it was really interesting so I delved a little deeper and started reading other stuff, those people actually revere LRH as like a prophet...only 50 years to get thousands of gullible people on board. Wow. Of course Christianity, Islam, Judiasm, et. al. did likewise, so I shouldn't be surprised.
So...wondering how long until Pastafarianism becomes an actual religion. I can really see it happening.
There's a person who rides my train who seems to be really into Scientology. She has a lot of negative stuff to say on psychiatrists and it amazes me how many times she can bring up that subject.
