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.

He was asking leading questions (the way he did in that session with Dorothy Brodded - remember?) and evaluating too. Several other students on the Briefing Course remarked to one another now and again on LRH's poor auditing technique but kinda brushed it off - after all this was RON. >Also, ElRon's policy to bug the offices of sales people is still in force. >After all this is an important tool so tag-team techniques as outlined by >the late Les Dane in his Big League Sales Closing Techniques can be done.

It seemed perfectly all right at the time. I recommend that anyone who feels an itch to justify the various controlling behaviours of the CoS browse the various web pages or look up "cults" in at the library and become familiar with the "mind-control" techniques cults use. >Andrew Michele
