I realize that not everyone has had the experience in Scientology that I have had. The sum total of some people's experiences with and in Scn turned out to be, overall, beneficial to them.
They will tend to accentuate the positive in LRH's motives. And there is nothing wrong with that.
I think that you are intentionally remaining ignorant of critical thinking skills and the points that people are making that run counter to your own beliefs.
I actually think that you are intentionally looking away from the points that people are making and not studying their ideas for yourself and coming up with your own answers about them.
This is a dangerous practice for anyone, not just a Scientologist.
It's also what pussies and losers do: They never truly seek to confront and understand the points that argue against their own beliefs, and so they never truly test whether what they believe is actually true.
They are cowards and they are weak.
Don't be one of them. Seek to truly understand the points that people make who argue with you. Show that you have the cajones to listen, and to look. And then come right back with an even better argument against them - an argument based on a thorough understanding of where they are actually wrong.
That's what real men do.
Noone has to agree with me, nor I with anyone else. Why is that a problem with you?
You wanna satanize Hubbard, go ahead. I prefer to appreciate him for what he was and what he wasn't.
He laid the groundwork for others to be much greater than he was.
The future is ours.
