pinapple, I like your 4 steps. I am concerned that perhaps I err in recommending that people save the tid bits of Scientology that are worth saving per step 4. My thought has been, "Hell, Ron ripped someone else off for the idea so why not rip him off for the same "pearls of great price" as the Mormons refer to valuable scriptures. But it may be that some are better off to flush the whole turd burrito because to sit toilet side and pick the undigested beans out before you flush it is not only mighty unappetizing but may land you in the ER if you're not careful. Maybe the hold over truths are not worth the chance one takes by trying to sift them out and risk picking up a bug. The way I look at it is that I'm on Earth to learn and evolve so why should I let Hubbard cheat me out of my progress just because he had the audacity to brand everything he hog tied with his LRH iron and take all the credit for it whereas he may just have lifted & reworded it from some other "source" that I would have likely encountered sooner or later anyway. What do you think on that?
