Hello All

Everyone seems to be making fun of scientology. Maybe because it's comparatively new. Maybe because it has comparatively odd beliefs. Maybe because it's just the "cool" thing to do.

Now, I'm no scientologist, but since it's an official religion (or is it?) wouldn't making fun of it make you racist?

And what makes it so bad anyway? I don't know much about scientology.

It would be discrimination, not racism.

They worship Xenu, the leader of the Galactic Confederation millions of years ago, who was finally stopped by being placed under a volcano.

That's not a religion. That's L. Ron Hubbard's science fiction.

Well, maybe to a scientologist, the concept of a huge omnipotent bearded man, by the name of God Christ who created the universe in 7 days and is watching over us seems equally absurd.

scientology is trying to do what the catholic church did before the 1550s

I am right in thinking Scientology was founded by a science fiction writer, no? Plus, after seeing the investigation into Scientology on Panorama they seem like an odd bunch

It's magic magic baby!

Shouldn't this be in the "Only Religion Thread"? https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=612880&highlight=religion

Then again this is technically aimed at one religion...so that might be counted as discrimination...


I'm gonna stop attempting to work out if this is a fair thread or not and just back away...

if atheists think christianity and catholism is a load of **** i wonder what they think about scientology lol
Send me off to bed forevermore.

To be completely frank, I don't take any religion seriously, but that is hardly surprising considering I come from a nation renown for our godless heathens.

Are there a race of scientologists out there?

Or are there a group of them?

Well I think christianity is a load of shit too. Now it's the same thing. Now watch how many people get upset...
#21
It's an official religion because I'm sure there are lots of politican's friends who are members and it rakes in a lot of dough.

L. Ron Hubbard couldn't sell any of his ****ty books so he brainwashed people into thinking this crap actually happened.

He's just a smart businessman.

i think they're both absurd
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

Racist hahah, you absolute idiot.
#25
Wow. The most controversial thing in a thread about scientology is the fact that I used the word "racist" out of context, because I didn't know a better term.

Good work, pit monkeys! Always ahead of the vocabulary curve.

Heh, comparing Scientology to Christianity is ridiculous. Hubbard told people that he was going to invent a religion to see how many idiots would buy into it...disappeared for awhile and boom, Scientology.

The Bible was completely revolutionary and contradictory to the thoughts of the time period in which it was written, and actually put boundaries on a nation of people instead of making them wealthy.

What would be a good term to describe someone who judges people by their religion?

I asked why everyone hates it and why it's considered acceptable to hate it, when hating other religions is frowned upon.

not racism. racism is for judging people by their race

Well, what else can you think of?

I know Racism isn't the right term, but that's the closest I got. And I've heard it used a lot for the reason I mentioned.

I don't see the logic in discriminating anyone, or their beliefs.
I agree with you 100%. But Scientology is a cult. If you are required to pay money to enter, it is not a religion.

There was a thread on scientiology 2 or 3 weeks ago that had some good documentaries in it. I'll try any find it.
