Precisely, and the majority of members aren't at OT3 yet, so they don't even know that that's the basis of the religion. If there is no objection, I'll cut and paste a section of my paper and the sources within.

"Hubbard’s own hand-written notes detail “76 planets around larger stars founded 95,000,000 years ago,” which are “visible from here [Earth]." From said planets, which were facing overpopulation in quantities of "about 250 million per planet," surfaced a "head of the Galactic Federation" known as Xenu whose solution to the overpopulation problem was sending vast numbers of his people to Earth at some time between "75,000,000 and 4 quadrillion years ago." Hubbard continues to say that Xenu brought them to Earth and deposited them inside volcanoes on an island matching the description of Hawaii. When escapees emerged 36 days later, Xenu captured them and vaporized the remaining imprisoned individuals by detonating a hydrogen bomb. Xenu was subsequently "captured after six years of battle,” at which point Earth had since become a "desert."" http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Church_of_Scientology's_'Operating_Thetan'_documents_leaked_online

That has to be the most badass religion ever! It's got everything! War, aliens, lots of years, which is better than creationism, they only have 6000. The bad guy's name begins X, so you KNOW he's sinister. And now it has Tom Cruise, who hopefully plays as the all american space ranger who travels the galaxy, sleeping with foxy alien chicks and firin his layzors at robots!

Did I mention they rob you, separate you from your family, and destroy you psychologically until you build a dependence on it?

It'd be cute if it was fiction; this is dead-fuckin-serious. Not many people even get to criticize it without Scilons harassing them in every way possible. Fallout 2 and Saints Row 2 were (seemingly) lucky cases.

Always kind of surprised me they didn't attempt to sue Interplay for Fallout 2.

Apparently they keep records of "enemies of scientology" and feel whatever measures, no matter if they're illegal or unethical (provided they can't get caught), are justified in ruining said enemies. Usually they do it by tying them up in defamation trials until they run out of money.

Scientology has no legal basis for suing Interplay over Fallout 2.

Other than that, I just pity them. Frankly, they aren't much worse than the Catholic church, I mean, at least they believe that the earth is round, right? Only the very feeble of mind will join either.

That never stops them from suing. The point isn't to win the case so much as waste the other party's time and money.

The Catholic church, as much as I hate them, are not that stupid. The myth that they told Columbus the world is flat is false - they actually told him the world is round and huge, and that he'd be likely to find nothing more than open ocean for thousands of miles.

I'm not exactly sure what you're getting at? The Catholic Church has suppressed the scientific community for centuries, i.e. have a look at the "Church Controversy" section here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galileo_Galilei
I'm not saying that the Catholic Church is stupid - they are a bunch of power-hungry, greedy, brain-washing and dominating bastards and they do a pretty good job at it. I just pity anyone that actually follows them.

I'm not drawing a distinction. On the contrary, they are akin to scientology, or almost any other established religion out there.

By the way, that wasn't even funny in 2003. You stink and your mothers a vile whore, her vagina looks like rusted tin.

In the Fall semester, I actually wrote a 19-page paper on why Scientology is destructive and threatening to modern society. It's informative to people who are as-of-yet unaware of what Scientology is and what it's done, but to people already informed, it's just preaching to the choir.

I don't see what that has to do with my awesome reply to a spam troll.
