I think I may be a Scientologist

My library regularly has a cart of books and audio cassettes for sale...hard covers for a dollar, soft covers for $0.50, etc. When I was there today, I noticed three brand new (still shrink wrapped) volumes of pure Scientology propaganda. I obviously shelled over the three dollars. Nobody really knows anything about them, maybe these books slipped through their hands by accident, and by possessing them, I'm a member of the church? Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, one thousand nine hundred and fifty two pages of genuine L. Ron Hubbard literature:

 Scientology, to me, seems to be based off of The Heavens Gate Society, and we all know what they did. But their religions seem almost exactly, and eerily the same. Check the facts out, and talk to me later.

How about you draw the comparisons in clear terms, and remember that Scientologists have been known to "get their lawyers-out".

... wait L. Ron Hubbard the novelist?

He's the one who founded scientology.
so, how's Scientology treating you?

Haven't really gotten to read the books yet. But they haven't killed me yet, either, so I guess that's good.
I don't think they kill you, they just make you....umm....."interesting."
I read his Dianetics book.....sounded like modern-day voo-doo emphasis on the doo to me :-)
Yes. The story (probably apocryphal) is that he created Scientology essentially as a bar bet. Hubbard said that he could invent a viable religion for an SF story, and John W. Campbell told him he couldn't. So he did. I am not sure I believe it, but it does make a really great creation myth :-) The official history is that Hubbard's early work with Dianetics "cured Campbell's sinusitis," and Campbell became an enthusiastic convert.
well, now Hubbard is rollin' in dough! since it costs $300 for someone to explain all the Scientology stuff to you
