Is Scientology actually EXPANDING?

Discussion in 'Other Locations' started by Vittorio, Apr 11, 2007.

    Mike - with all due respect: Do you think that Scientology can do anything to stop a nuclear war, or some other event catastrophic to our civilization?

    If so, would you please say what they can do?

    Maybe you can start with what they have done to affect the civilization in any way up to now.

    I'm not belittling you. But I would like you to lay out exactly what you think about this.

    Please present it as persuasively as you can.

    I hope you don't mind if I disagree with you.

    Phew! For a minute there, I was gettin worried, O.

    Well, ya. She makes good sense, since the "baby" may well be a disease-carrying, mosquito larvae.

    A reeducation camp, perhaps?

    Oh, you're still a true believer in that ol' Wallo Fire fable you were fed?

    Oh yes, we must not forget the Fatman and his legacy. Like Benjamin Whichcote said, "None are so empty as those who are full of themselves."

    It does seem to be the trained auditors that are totally convinced the stuff works no matter what.

    Just an observation.

    1) It *does* work; just not the way it's sold
    2) The part that 'works' works on both the auditee *and* the auditor
    3) If you've spent thousands or hundreds of thousands on 'training', wouldn't you like to think it was training in something more valuable than pretzel twisting?

    That graph of Flag Completion Tallies shows a crash at around the time of the infamous Mission Holder's Conference.
    Is this just a coincidence?

    I wonder, after the mess that OT VIII turned into, whether there will be any more "OT Levels released"?

    Where did you get the info that Superpower is delayed until late '08? I didn't know there was any actual date of its release yet.

    There were lots and lots of people getting declared in 1982. The Mission Holders Conference was only part of the bloodbath.
