It's always a total waste of time arguing facts. Only opinions need an argument to gain acceptance.

What do you expect when brainwashed morons get a chance to type on the computer. I wonder if we could do the same with liberals and the web? They too love to put lies out as the truth.

I have only ever met one Scientologist and he was a total swivel-eyed fruitcake. What a load of silly rubbish, and it also costs the converts money!

I was about to wholeheartedly with what you wrote, but I think you're slightly mistaken about liberals being brainwashed and using the net as a tool for propaganda.

I take pride in thinking things through rationally and advancing society instead of wanting to have things "how they were and should always be" according to old literature.

Just curious: what happens if, after you've thought things through rationally, you discover that society is advanced by leaving something how it was? Put another way, how does one choose if rational though reveals that something doesn't need to be changed?
I get the impression that by your qualification (ie: "take pride in thinking things through rationally" is immediately followed by "advancing society" as if it could never be anything but self-evident that the former only and always causes the latter) that changing something is the only choice. Except that that would be an example of change for the sake of change, which would seem to contradict the "pride in thinking things through rationally" in favor of not thinking something through to just assume that doing something different from before is automatically better, as opposed to being, for example, contrarian or conflictive (not a word, but go with me for a sec).
Understand, I'm asking to understand without stereotyping or assuming, not criticize or firebomb (so to speak).
Thanks.

Aside: the problem becomes how much OCD behavior is acceptable? Civilizations rise and fall based on their tolerance/intolerance ratios -- and to what objectives these tolerances and intolerances are directed -- such form ethos

Oh my God! Cuz? Is that really you? Did they let you out of RPF again? Welcome back, Jet! Believe it or not, we actually missed you!

The guys who have been by lately have been terribly boring. None of them have had your Charlie Mansonesque charm.

Tell you what, how about you tell the good folks passing through, what exactly is the "SOA" and why would they have a beef with Scientology. You know, just so people can see the sort of headspace you're coming from and treat your postings with the seriousness it deserves.

This is the Scientology forum, not the "whine and bitch about politics" forum.

Take it elsewhere.

Oh, now Cuz, we all know that OCD doesn't really exist right? It's part of the psychiatric conspiracy to control thetans on an intergalactic level.

Ol' Ron tells us so.

Absolutely nothing to do with Scientology being exposed as poorly plagiarised quackery by the APA over 50 years ago.

Once upon a time a science fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard turned to a friend and, in a cynical tone, said, "I'm going to start a new religion". Thus was born a new con game called "Dianetics", from which sprang "Scientology". Now the vulnerable and the gullible had a new way to be exploited. Some say that, even today, they can hear faint sounds of laughter from L. Ron's crypt.
