Scientology fact check
« on: February 08, 2011, 10:22:17 AM »
I checked and the whole XenuTM thing was a myth created by Scientology haters who want to stop people practicing their religion.



But why believe me you can check for yourself!

Search on wikileaks. If memory serves xenu was leaked and it is t revealed to members until they reach a certain level.

Quote
Within the Church of Scientology, the Xenu[TM] story is part of the church's secret "Advanced Technology", considered a sacred and esoteric teaching, and normally only revealed to members who have already contributed large amounts of money. The church avoids mention of Xenu[TM] in public statements and has gone to considerable effort to maintain the story's confidentiality, including legal action on the grounds of both copyright and trade secrecy. Members of the Church of Scientology widely deny or try to hide the Xenu[TM] story. Despite this, much material on Xenu[TM] has leaked to the public via court documents, copies of Hubbard's notes, and the Internet.

Also, I wouldn't search for information on xenu anymore. It is copyrighted by the church. Even viewing a copy of it is enough to bring about litigation.

Can you imagine the media furore if $cientology went after The Flat Earth Society? The best thing about this forum is that we have an in-built Chewbacca defence.

If we went to trial our use of FET would be as nonsensical to the jury as the Chewbacca defence.

so the Chewbacca defence is about confusing the jury so much that they forget what it's all about and just rule in your favour?

So do lawyers. How do you think OJ got off? Instead of talking about relevant data proving he did it, they yelled about gloves not fitting until the jurors were happy.

He's more famous for killing his wife, getting away with it, then writing a book "If I had killed her this is how I would have done it" I'm not shitting you either.

Wow... why would you? I mean, writing a book like that is just screaming out that you did do it? What, was this guy an idiot or something? Though I do hear that American football is a lot more violent than our's, so maybe it's just too many blows to the head...

He was declared not guilty. In america you can only be brought to court once for a crime. He could have written a book "Here's how I did it and got away with it." In fact he was even charged in a wrongful death suit and had to pay his wife's family money.
