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

Okay, kids, heres the scam.
You see those 4th-graders over there? We tell them that they've got these
things plastered all over them, like invisible ectoplasmic boogers. They
got them wiped all over them 75 million years ago.
You can't see, because you got boogers all over your eyes. The ears are
likewise covered. You are encased in jillions of boogers.
Now, we tell'em that we can detect these boogers with some cans and wires
and scientific stuff. Then, if they give us their lunch money for the
rest of the year, we can pry those ecto-boogers off them and they'll
feel better, but it's all GOTTA BE A SECRET, right?
If they start to get wise, we can just beat them up at recess.
Speaking of recess, we gotta get started, only ten minutes left.
