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

Tim, have you actually read LRH's History of Man? I have. I have a nice
copy right here beside me. With a crude cover drawing of a shaggy
caveman eating a turkey leg.
It is a strang ebook.
Do you believe in clam engrams? Do you belive man was descended from teh
clam? That clams propagate by spores? Do you believe in Hubbard's hilarious
theories about the exploding barnacles and human teeth?
Fac 1. The Coffee Grinder? Bap! Bap! Bap!
Thetan traps? The halver?
And this is just a start. BTs? BT clusters? GE engrams?
Yes, we know about it. We know about people selling themselves into
servitude to be on staff or in teh sea org to obtain promised powers that
these stupid beliefs cannot and do not deliver. Can you move marbles
with your attention beams as Hubbard promised? Can you find us any
Stupidologist that can? Exteriorize? No?
We know people get trapped in this crazy cult with freeloader
debts hanging over their heads working 60 hour weeks at poverty level
wages without insurance.
And we know the awful things your cult does to critic, and those who leave.
The whole horror storys.
A stupid cult based on stupid beliefs by a brain damaged pseudoscientist
who was also a pathological liar. We know he made promises based on
these deluded beliefs that are not kept. We know the cult is a vicious
and destructive organization thathas harrassed many and destroye dteh
lives of thousands.
It would take several books to get to all teh details, but yes, we know
this stuff, Tim.
Some of us have been watching your bizarre cult since before you were
born do it's stupid cult tricks.
Now about them attention beams. Marcabs. Invader Forces.
Gorrilla goals. Xenu. Yeah, how can we take this stuff seriously.
