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. Rice, The Skeptic Tank, 09/Sep/95

From an article in the Christmas Washington Post:
[I] have heard persuasive stories of abuse and deception from ex-members.
Among the defectors are those who say they paid substantial sums to attain
the secrets of the upper level Scientology courses, which are, based on
Hubbard's vision of an intergalatic Holocaust 75 million. (See note)
years ago, when an evil ruler named Xenu implanted "thetans" (or spirits)
in volcanoes on Teegeeack, which we now call Earth.

Why pay all that cash for such crap when you can read it from SCAMZIDAT
or, for that matter, in TIME or THE WASHINGTON POST?
(that should be 75 trillion - flr)
