Whoops, I didn't watch the video to the end, I thought it was a video I've seen a long time ago. This is pretty funny, in fact. :D

I was actually in Books-A-Million buying the new Steven L. Kent book and I saw E. Hubbard books in the sci-fi section. Conversation that follows.

Me: Isn't that the guy who propagated that esoteric Scientology religion?
Brother: No he didn't really mean it to be a religion.
Me: Really, I was sure that's what it was?
Brother: Eh.
Me: No wonder I can't find my book though, these belong in the religion section, God Books-A-Millions organization sucks.

I was very ticked it took me a long time to find the book because it was behind a vampire book and I refused to believe it would be.

I'd actually heard that Scientology was the result of a bet between L. Ron and Heinlein about creating a religion.  Frankly, I find Church of All Worlds more palatable.

Having read exactly two of Hubbard's books (Battlefield Earth and the first of that god-awful dekology), I'd still call them science fiction, even if they are among the very few books that I've just had to put down without finishing.  In the same way, I separate Uncle Isaac's Foundation series from his extensive non-fiction books.

Hubbard was far more financially successful as a religious writer (and I think the financial aspect was his goal), but he did write (if not well) in both genres.

I think Hubbard said in a interview "I should start a religion that's were the real money is" but that might have just been a internet meme

The name 'Dianetics' purportedly came from his daughter's name because 'If God can have a religion named after his son...'

*snicker*  If I have to pick a religion based on a sci-fi book, I'll take All Worlds every time...at least it makes sense imho.

And..it's Heinlein...he kicks patootie.

Nope that has been directly attributed to Elron Hubbard, not a internet rumor.

Why is it that when you look at scientologists they do nice things, help people in need and your like "wow thats pretty cool, they do stuff to improve peoples lives, that's not bad"

But when you see what they believe in kinda makes you go "What?... wow... ok... really? ... I gotta go"

This video is a parody, the "ghost magic" guy is making fun of them.  The unaltered original video is also on Youtube.

Aww, Scientologists get such a bad rap for having equally inane ideas such as, a cosmically powered zombie that will reemerge to save all of humanity, a weather-controlling father-God consummated with a white swan to create progeny, life is a physical manifestation of an eternal wheel that reacts to choices gauged by a mutually-agreed to set of suggestive rules, etc.

Iíve head a lot of this and that regarding Scientology, some of which, all, or none may be true.

What I do know is that after watching that interview that Tom Cruise gave last year, he is either batshit fucking loco on his own, the church did it and gave him Superman complex, or perhaps all of the above.  ::)

I don't like this. It is far too much like the 'humorous' propaganda cartoons Germany produced about Jewish people before WWII. These people made a choice to follow this religion. I am sickened that a person's spiritual beliefs, however ridiculous they sound, are the subject of crude jokes.

Ya know, this kind of reaction actually promotes racial devides and such even more >___> I'm really getting tired of it.

Scientology is just as stupid as Christianity, and thats we parody both of them. But right now, its difficult for me to find humor in Scientology, now that their many crimes are coming to the surface. Theres a difference between a church and a cult. Cults ruin lives on purpose, Churches by accident.
