Why are Scientologists so threatened by someone disagreeing with them? Could it be because they are terrified of the thought that they might be wrong and have wasted their lives?
Personally, I just pity them - they are deluded and think they are saving the universe but cannot even face the truth or see how sad they appear to others.
You nailed it with this statement:
THEY ARE TERRIFIED OF THE THOUGHT THAT THEY MIGHT BE WRONG AND HAVE WASTED THEIR LIVES
This is why a true kool-aid drinker has to hit ROCK BOTTOM before getting out. Sadly, some don't make it.
They are saddled with these fixed ideas:
LRH is always right
Scientology is saving the planet
There's just no arguing with anyone who is stuck with these ideas.
