    But wait. . .wait. . .wait. . .wait. I am having a deja vu moment. It's um--

    When someone trips and falls down and then (jokingly) says, "I was trying to do that."

    Wait, another deja vu moment--

    When Ron suddenly and unexpectedly went total effect and croaked, and then Scientologists were all ordered to a mandatory worldwide event to r-factor them: "Ron was trying to do that."

    ah yes, :thumbsup:

    cause and effect, and an OT causes, why this is sublime, by Hubbard the writer:

    "In [STRIKE]aesthetics[/STRIKE] scientology, the sublime (from the Latin sublīmis) is the quality of greatness, whether physical, moral, intellectual, metaphysical, aesthetic, spiritual, or artistic. The term especially refers to a greatness beyond all possibility of calculation, measurement, or imitation."

    Think Clear and OT by Hubbard and his stories, who sold us those concepts (but didn't tell us he learned rhetoric and the Sublime).

    But wait, :thumbsup:

    "The effects of the Sublime are: loss of rationality, an alienation leading to identification with the creative process of the [STRIKE]artist[/STRIKE] Hubbard and a deep emotion mixed in pleasure and exaltation. An example of sublime (which the author quotes in the work) is a poem by Sappho, the so-called Ode to Jealousy, defined as a "Sublime ode". A writer's goal is not so much to express empty feelings, but to arouse emotion in his audience.[SUP][8]"

    Your mistrust is so strong, that you must have already lost your mind, and can´t see the smallest piece of reality :coolwink:.

    Now let´s have a deeper look at the church statement:
    "...the buildings that were destroyed by the mudslide were already scheduled for demolition."

    Now, normally you destroy a building only when you need the place for something better, something more "ideal" like an "ideal org". So it is clear, that the OT-churchies had decided, that at this place should be something more appropriate.

    Then you will understand, that it takes some time, until the old buildings are destroyed and the debris removed. The problem starts when you have already ordered the material for the new monument, but you ran out of slave-workers. Then you can´t clean the space in time. And exactly that happened here.

    Have a closer look: at this place is now a mudslide. This must be an "IDEAL MUDSLIDE" because everything in Co$ has to be "IDEAL" now.

    So they OT-churchies really wanted to remove the old buildings and clean the space before the "IDEAL MUDSLIDE" will be delivered. Unfortunately they ran out of time....

    See ? it is proven now: the OT-churchies never lie....

    BTW, when will YOU donate to the "IDEAL MUDSLIDE" ? donate now !!!
