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

probably not an oral surgeon. l. ron was pathologically
terrified of doctors and psychologists, a condition called
'iatrophobia' if i'm correct, which i mention since i've
had problems with those 'iatro-' words in the past and
still wince whenever i see one. he was reduced to pathetic
gibbering horror at the mere thought of doctors, and due to this,
late photographs show that he had a mouth full of lousy, yellow,
rotten teeth, so bad that he was reduced to mumbling and they
had to invent a special noise reduction system just to make
his garbled and drunkenly slurred speech intelligible.
once, when he broke his arm, he refused medical treatment and instead
'cured' himself through auditing. really, he just gobbled loads of
painkillers and became a total asshole, screaming insane gibberish and
overboarding people for no reason at all, sending children to
chain lockers and altogether behaving like a demented goon.

i hope so. he sure got wiggy and disgusting near the end, so
much so that i doubt the cult could survive video of the blubbard
raving and screaming insanity about the cia and body thetans,
and pathetically begging not to be turned over to the government.
he did, after all, die an unhandled pts iii loony, completely
bonkers, loons in the attic, a disgrace, dianetics proven
to be utterly worthless and pathetic in the face of his lunacy.
