By now youve probably heard of this relatively newand quickly spreadingbelief system known as Scientology. Tom Cruise is probably to blame for your knowledge of this religion.
Other celebrities joining the Scientology madness include Kirstie Alley, Beck, Nicole Kidman, Priscilla & Lisa Marie Presley, Isaac Hayes, Catherine Bell, Jason Lee, and John Travolta, among others (scientology-kills.org).
It is my professional opinion that Scientology is nothing but a sleazy cult.
Scientology was created in the 1950s by a science-fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard. He utilized a combination of hypnotization and greed to create his religion. In Hubbards own words:
"Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion."
Readers Digest reprint, May 1980
Little less than a decade later, he created Scientology.
In this religion, one tries to re

Question #8: Does emotional music have quite an effect on you? (This is interesting because it's a line in a Faith No More song. Something off of Angel Dust, the name escapes me right now)
Question #113: Do you enjoy activites of your own choosing? (After I read this question, I pulled out my notebook and copied it down, giggling all the while. My giggling and copying cause much consternation for the shirt-type that was monitoring, and my giggling only intesified when I answered the question with 'No'.)
There were 240 questions in all. Some were so pointed toward a certain psychological state that it was laughable ("When you view inkblots, do you often see things that are morbid or disturbing?")

The glass teardropI saw it in a shop, I barely remember what I was doing there now. It was one of those shops full of useless odds and ends, knick-knacks, good-looking junk. I think I was shopping for an aunt, letting my gaze sweep across the tacky wares in the hope of spotting something inspirational. There it was, in a crowded display cabinet in the back corner of the shop. A glass teardrop.The glass teardrop9 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
It wasn't one of those cheap pieces of glass on string, nor a faceted crystal teardrop. It was suspended inside another block of glass somehow, with other shafts and angles intercepting it, but not splitting it or spoiling it. I stared at it for countless minutes trying to work out if it was glass and air, cracked glass, sheets of glass or some other clever technique. The light poured around it, bright and dark, but it still stood alone in the centre of its block.
I must have stared at it for too long, because the little old lady who worked behind the counter appeared at my side and asked if she could help me. I a
Angel Of DeathAngel Of Death10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Crucified, choking in the blood that once gave me life.
Stripped of my soul, I bleed, but still feel nothing.
My bloodshot eyes no longer see the dismal world around me.
Bones broken, breaking though the skin,
The remnants of my dead, torn soul lingering in the bloodied shell that was once so full of life and happiness.
The young carefree happy days have long been brutally slain and forgotten.
I wake up to see an Earthly hell.
Dead and broken is the soul that once burned so fiercely.
My body is cold,
My blood no longer flows warm.
Ripping the cold human flesh that once held me,
The bright lights that used to be my future have now burned out.
Death will carry me to somewhere I do not know,
But any place is better than here.
Before I lose my last grip on life, my memories fill me, breaking what little I have left of my heart, soul, mind, and body.
The tears of which my eyes leak fall into deep wounds and cause pain only my half-dead body can feel.
Death seems only too patient to come and

All I want: a bowler hat
A 14 mile 'nana
And a soft-spoken polar cat
And to know - who is Brianna?
I want a friend named Charlsey
Pennington Brighton McToot
And a little sprig of parlsey
On each side of a barbecued boot
I want to finally realize
That I was right all along
And to wrap all my fingers in twisty-ties
While I hum, if not sing, you a song
I want a pet heffalump on a string
and a loop and a moon and a name
I want to change 'most everything
But have it all stay the same
I want tubes and tubes and tubes and tubes
Of the craziest crazy glue
I want a word to rhyme here that's not "boobs"
So I won't be offending you
I want to grow a set of gills
And learn to play Parcheesi
I want to go listen to "Hollow Hills"
I want springtime to make me less sneezy
But mostly I want to not miss you so much
And not have to dwell on That
And then I would be all contented, and such
With just a new bowler hat
The Occupy Movement is Harmless and ConfusedAn adventure into a mundane campaign for social justice in the Decadent WestThe Occupy Movement is Harmless and Confused3 years ago in Editorial More Like This
- The Public Domain -
From day one, I figured checking out the Occupy movement was better than not, when I already have attended less popular protests in the region. I e-mailed the local communists and asked if they would be in attendance, they gave back a "sure". Cool. They are the only other group I make my presence known with. They operate mainly under a different protest name but commonly hand out copies of People's Voice, the official Communist Party of Canada newspaper. I've been in the paper, but I've never gotten a copy. I may at some point, it's available online.
I decided that this movement was close enough to being radical for me to make a peaceful accepted presence at. Locally, and through much of Canada, there was a planned specific day for worldwide protests. October 15th, the day of Action or some shit. I had only been in the province for about two weeks when this rolled aro

"Put the souls in danger!"
"Yes! We can tell them their souls are corrupted for some reason, some ancestor broke a rule or something, and that they're going to be tortured forever if they don't do what we- a God says..."

"Good idea! And we can still blame bad things happening to the village on their actions, just to keep them on their toes. We can also distract them by saying we have the cure for the corrupted souls, so long as they do everything we- I mean God says!"

How I Became an AtheistHow I became and AtheistHow I Became an Atheist3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
In my life I've been asked many questions on how I became an Atheist. They were more or less the same. They asked "are you angry at God", "did something happen","have you read the Bible","how is it possible not to believe" and other similar to these. If you're an Atheist you know what I'm talking about. These are pretty common. Also, these questions remind me the same questions asked to the gay people when the gay rights movement first started. The people behind these questions? More or less the same. These questions will be asked by your average theist person that has no idea what an Atheist is and most possibly is scared to ask questions and doubt his own faith.
I was brought up in a Christian Greek Orthodox household but my parents didn't have strict control over my beliefs. That was step one. We were a family that liked to travel abroad a lot, specialy in Europe and because one of my aunts is married to a Turkish person (surprise!), I

My body shakes and shivers. It trembles with every tender touch of your supple hands. Stroking every spot and tracing every curve. Breath fills the air. I'm panting and crying. Fearful. I hear a growling voice. Enveloping every soft moan that fills my ear. Your hands gently caress my face. I come closer yearning to taste your lips. The feel on my skin is now rough and ghastly. Caresses turn into tugging and pulling. So hard. My skin is ripping. I stare at the coarse texture of the rope, contrasting the smooth feel of your lips against mine. I taste you. But it transforms into a nauseating taste of blood in my mouth. Your lips reach down to my neck. Teasing my soft spots. I feel it becoming forceful. Strings piercing through my delicate face. The rope now encircles me. Fearful. I turn you over sliding my hands across your back. My body against yours. I feel empowered. My hand is slipping away. Tied behind my back. Stripped from all power. My breathing weakens. I lay my feeble head again

Darling jaded Angelica, can you hear me call?
Can you hear me from heaven; can you hear at all?
Is the sky blue life up there treating you so kind?
Sometimes I wish to join you and leave this world behind.
Oh Angelica, you cried so much before you had to leave
Was dying really the only way to save your sanity?
Angelica you'd died of a heartbreak I'll never understand.
You were already dead inside, though I was there to hold your hand.
Oh my stained Angelica, with your tainted soul,
Have angels bathed you tenderly and filled your growing hole?
In heaven do emotional wounds show like cuts then bleed?
And is anyone up there giving you the bandages you need?
Have they wiped the dirt of heartbreak yet so far away?
Are you beautiful again my love? Can you stay that way?
Has heaven purified you so that you'll never hurt again?
Is it really a new beginning, or…is it just the end?
Angelica, do you miss me, up in the sky so free?

What I've Learned from PokemonWhat I've Learned from Pokemon4 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Like any red-blooded American who was between the ages of eight and twelve in the late 1990s, I was a huge fan of Pokemon. Though I was not like my peers, as I didn't play the games or watch the anime, I expressed my fanaticism by my religious collection of Pokemon cards. At my peak, I had about 246 cards, including a shiny Kangaskhan and a pack of Japanese import cards that I somehow got my hands on. I even had a Pokemon-themed birthday party for my eighth birthday, and my mom made a chocolate cake with a Pikachu face made entirely out of marzipan. I think I even have some of the plates left over from the party.
Eventually, like most of my peers, I decided that Pokemon was passe, and I sold all of my cards for about 50 bucks, which was probably a mistake, considering what was in my stash.
When it came to the games, though I didn't play them, I watched my friends play them on their Gameboy Pockets. Years went by before I actually played a Pokemon game. That had to wait until I actually

For that alone she should be thrown in jail. Plaid is fashionable for lumber jacks. I don't take fashion advice from sweaty dirty men who haul wood thankyouverymuch. Bringing something into style that is as ugly as plaid is a criminal offence for which she needs to be punished. Because you just KNOW the redneck white trash girls are just SHITTING themselves over this. It's like they found a kindred spirit or something. I can't wait for the camouflage.

"-One of the teachings of Wicca is reincarnation. But there is no evidence in support of reincarnation. There is no way to prove it exists."
There is no way to prove Heaven either, dumbass. Also, at least reincarnation makes sense for two reasons:
- It is a common belief in even christian derived traditions, so it's prevalence is indicative that it is more likely to be real than Heaven.
- On a scientific point of view, the body is scattered after death, so why not the soul? Only some abrahamic cults believe in a soul that is immortal; all other religions believe the soul can be fragmented, can be wounded. Seeing as how the soul is consistently depicted as not being a distinct entity from the body, it makes more sense.
"-How do you know the gods and goddesses of Wicca exist? Can you prove it?
