And Scientology is perfect.
Is it possible to believe in something you didn’t experience yourself?
Seeing the obvious is not always obvious. How do you know the moon has a backside?
If it is unreal to you, does it have to be a lie? In Scientology you are expected to find out for yourself and experience everything first hand to really believe it. If not, you can’t really trust the information. I find that rather extreme.
You don’t have to spend time in a concentration camp to believe it existed. Luckily you don’t have to feel everything on your own body and soul to believe it. We can rely on history, and true sources. Still many members of the Church of Scientology know about crimes being committed and abuses going on but they continue to support the church. Why? Because they have not been abused personally:
“I haven’t seen any people being hit by David Miscavige”, “I was never pressured to give money”, “What these ex-members say is unreal to me”, “It can’t be that bad”, etc.
This never stops amazing me. There must be some other reason why these people continue to justify, continue to close their eyes and ears.
This behavior can only be defined by one word: BRAINWASH.
The Church of Scientology manipulates its members big time while emptying their pockets. And they are experts at this. The members still inside the Scientology Cult cling onto their last hope of salvation shutting the door to truth and real freedom. I advice you to read Geir Isene’s article on Scientology’s Hope. That hope is a trap. It is a big fat lie!
It is both selfish and evil to support a cult like the Church of Scientology. People’s lives are ruined and destroyed every day. Battered Person Syndrome is in full bloom inside the church. I pray people will wake up sooner than later and leave while they still can.
Staying connected to the Church of Scientology makes you an accomplice.
Our professor in Physical Chemistry asked us a question the other day: “Do you believe in atoms?” Well, that inspired this post.
