Scientology is ?

a parasitical mind virus it depends upon the health of the host to multiply
and grow.

it attacks a healthy mind at it weakest point which will
be some uncertainty "Ruin finding" it rides in like a Trojan Horse
seeming friendly and helpful and yet in its belly are many other
parastical viruses all with this same "friendly and helpful coding"

my comments in bold

[1] Promise heaven for belief.
Bridge to Total freedom, cause over matter energy space and time
is more than Heaven its complete dominion as a god.

[2] Threaten eternal punishment in hell for disbelief.
The whole agonized future of this planet, every man, woman and child on it, and your own destiny for the next endless trillions of years depend on what you do here and now with and in Scientology.

[3] Boost the believers' egos by telling them they are 'chosen' or superior to believers in false memes.
You are the authorities and big beings and the few chosen that can save all of mankind.

[4] Disable the faculties of disbelief ('immune response') by claiming that faith is superior to reason.
 
Believe in the bridge and that next step and the next and the next "reasonableness" don't let that stop you.

[5] Establish itself as the One True Meme, usually by some sort of holy book containing a circular self-referential argument such as:
"Excalibur" and the refusal to explain why Ron was able to discover the truth while all others had failed before him.

X is the one true meme. We know X is the one true meme because The Source of Universal Truth has approved X. We know The Source of Universal Truth has approved X, because X contains statements which say so. We know what X says is true because X is the one true meme.
 
See #5

Once it has parasitised the mind of its host, a meme needs to propagate itself. A successful meme will contain instructions for some or all of the following:

[6] Holy war - convert or kill all unbelievers.
 
dead agenting, War with the IRS fair game etc etc

[7] Intimidation and terrorism - threaten and discriminate against unbelievers.
lawsuits, PI's family disconections, shunning

[8] Enforced social isolation or even death to apostates. (An apostate is a host which has cured itself of a meme-infection. It is especially dangerous to the meme because it might pass on meme-resistance to others).
one small bit of doubt as to the truthfulness of source spreads like wildfire
especially if it comes from longtime followers close to the source of this so called "truth"

[9] Fecundism - encourage true believers to breed faster than believers in false memes.
Other practises are forbidden they are false ideas and the believers are wogs and degraded beings
make more clears and more Ots and more Scientologists.

[10] Censorship - prevent rival memes from reaching potential hosts (a theological doctrine known as 'Error has no rights').
Squirrels and Shrinks etc etc and stay off the internet, net nanny and don't read that wog entheta
called news that only lies about Scientology.

[11] Disinformation - spread lies about rival memes. Demonise them - the bigger the lies the more likely they are to be believed. The disinformation may even include instructions for a meme to lie about itself!
 
Demonising psychology and squirel groups ,Scientology is legendary, fastest growing religion in the world ?
yes it will lie about itself, nonprofit charitable organisation ? Its concern is its own growth and why ?
Because it is the one true meme which can save mankind from war and insanity ?

"War is mankinds ruin" and Scientology is trying to ride in on that weak point.

This is why Alan Walters simple question so effective.

Do you really really want a world run by Scientology ?

I don't believe that, but there are some people who love to say, "If it isn't fun it isn't Scientology."

So everybody was "working on their bridge " so that they could become gods in the same way that LRH was a god? I am a never in. It seems like hardly anybody ever acknowledges this aspect of the scam - that they were convinced they were going to become a god.

I'll acknowledge it, but I only made it to grade 0, so I never achieved clear. Although I thought it was possible by reading Hubbard and being convinced it was possible.

And he almost got me, before I devoted my whole life to him (I almost joined the Sea Org). But I did spend 26 years chasing the dream, thinking it was possible to have the attributes of a clear and OT, and I rearranged my life to follow this dream.

The sad part is he, the Hubbard, did get 26 years of my life, in thought, somewhat.

In reading the old greeks, plato, aristole, one realizes those folks, during their time period, used the words gods, to promote and communicate that one could improve their selves if they wanted to, by example of a ideal being called god, by just thinking they could become better and work towards the attributes of a god. Positive thinking at it's best.

and, of course, Hubbard capitalized on this, with his words, knowing people have not studied the old greeks, and the actual meaning in their words. And hubbard sure as hell created a mystery about it, called the OT levels. LOL

Hubbard monetized what is free to all. Yet Hubbard created a monopoly in the minds of folks who bought his words.

And "bought" means in my context, people who paid for his books and lectures, and people who were convinced he was a truth teller. :laugh:

it's worse than that:omg: some still are because they once were but fell from grace in a dwindling spiral
and are now this lowly degraded thing called a human being.

Of course they don't talk about it, not exactly a good converation starter is it ? :duh:

see what I mean its a thread killer conversation stopper:eyeroll: its simply socially
unaceptable to be as arrogant and self important as the topic implys.

It sets up a caste system socially Hubbard at the top of course :melodramatic::ohmy:
why ? well we can't get into that according to Hubbard but he did
what no one had done in a billions of years and if you tried to know
it, well it would probably kill you lesser beings:omg:

I'm always reminded at this point of a scene from 10 Comandments when Moses
raids the temple grainerys to feed the slaves.

The priests complain "this is food for the gods"

Moses replied "that which is meant for the gods will surely not sour in the bellys of slaves"

There is a very fundamental truth in that statement which is deadly to all mystery religions
that breaks the chains of all mystery religions based on "truth can do "you" harm" its a bald faced lie.
