So true. Long, long ago I was married to one of them there oateeeeees who responded in exactly the way you say after losing every penny he had inherited and (at the time) it was a lot. If he had wisened up after losing all I think I could have handled it but he didn't and I couldn't ... so as soon as I could I wandered off with my babies and made my own money and lived happily ever after (sort of, he did manage toAs best I can tell, they did not predict nor provide for the future because of their unshakeable faith that they would acquire miraculous capabilities, beginning with the easiest ones to attain called "knowingness" and "postulates". If you have either one of those super-powers, you can so very easily make brilliant investments and postulate making tens of millions of dollars any time you feel like it.
I must repeat something; even AFTER being bankrupted and losing a massive fortune, one of those celebrated OTs still posts LRH quotes about "total cause" and other delusional miracle-making-abilities that Scientologists "routinely" acquire.
Apparently, NOTHING can kill an OT's floating needle! Not even bankruptcy, utter financial ruin or death. Hey, let's not forget that Scientologists gave Hubbard an extended standing ovation with jubilant cheers---when he went completely insane and unexpectedly dropped dead.
STABLE DATUM DU JOUR: Scientologists are always winning! Unless they are NCG (no-case-gain), in which case Scientologists are STILL always winning---because NCGs get declared SP---and therefore they're no longer Scientologists.
I'm currently looking for a lovely dogs home to leave my money to when I drop dead (not planning on doing that anytime soon though).
You've gotta see the funny side of these things ... or life would be a bit rubbish.
