Skeptic Tank!

Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L.

Lines: 49 ... or so it seems! Don Purcell had sheltered and succoured Elron Phattso when, in 1951, the Dianetics movement was starting to implode; subsequently, he discovered the extent of Phatty's lies about the state of the accounts and began to realize that he was being cheated out of a fortune. As a co-trustee and principal creditor of the Hubbard Dianetic Foundation of Wichita, he claimed the assets of that outfit, including the lecture tapes and rights to the books -- even the right to the name "Dianetics" itself. On or around May 1, 1953, Phattso wrote of his erstwhile benefactor: "The obvious intention of Purcell is to attack and wipe out by public odium anything and everything he can in Dianetics, thus leaving him, he thinks, with a monopoly on the subject. Sooner or later it is quite obvious that this man ... who is probably the most hated man in the city of Wichita because of his business dealings, will run up against someone insane enough to put a bullet through him... Patently the man is insane. He has actively refused processing many times. He's about as safe to have around as a mad dog... The only surprising part of all this is that the American public by their attemtion to Purcell and what he says, demonstrates their complete incompetence and their desire to be swindled." So, either the Woodies have become infested with clusters from Phatty, or something else has been going on. Perhaps they have a course in how best to traduce someone's reputation, or maybe they have a manual of how Phatty denounced others, from which they select a choice phrase or two that almost seems to fit. Whatever the explanation, the Borg-like imitation of their Source is really most uncanny. +-------+ | Culex | "The Infamous Culex" +-------+ ============================================================================== Support Dennis Erlich!
