How could any thinking person take seriously a 'religion' that was started by a science fiction author, and a bad one at that?

I'm not a spambot
You're talking about 'Moses' right?

Yeah, I know! If Bradbury had started one, way more people would've joined. ^^
Yes, people, he's talking about Scientology. Ahh, Scientology. ^^

Religions were not designed
With thinking people in mind.

He's a little hypocritical, but he ain't wrong.

At least he's wrote more books

I actually liked battle field earth, thank you very much.

Wow that's like the smartest thing I've read from a fundie. It's too bad it comes back and bites him in the ass.

Now you know why we don't like scientology.
12/17/2008 1:28:54 PM
Now take that thought and run with it.
12/17/2008 1:31:31 PM
Wow. I actually agree with this comment.
12/17/2008 2:25:36 PM
That's it, you're on the right track. Now just take it that little bit further. Go on, you can do it...
12/17/2008 2:45:17 PM
As opposed to those taken in by a Christian Fanfic?

That maybe the smartest thing ever said on Rapture Ready.
3/25/2010 3:12:31 PM
Probably the same way people could believe in the concept of a Rapture invented by somebody in the 19th century by stretching the meaning of a single bible verse beyond recognization. They are gullible morons.

Yes, if only L-Ron had been the son of a carpenter and an adulteress, that way there'd be no doubt his was the one true religion.

Well that's the thing: Some the people who join Scientology weren't thinking too clearly when they made their choice (others were born into it, and pretty much had no choice but to hear all about it growing up). Much like how some join fanatical Christian groups.

Don't join the religion founded by a
writer -- join the religion founded by a couple of
writers (and then kick everyone else out)!

How could any thinking person take seriously a 'religion' what was started by stealing fables from older authors?
3/25/2010 5:20:50 PM
Then again, I think of the entire bible as science fiction.
3/25/2010 6:49:32 PM
Yeah, Outerworldly beings and spirits, that's just stupid. Christianity doesn't do this,,,,much,,,,well, quite a lot actually
3/28/2010 8:47:41 AM
And I don't for a minute believe most scientologist believe in the story. Except Cruise, he's an idiot
3/28/2010 8:48:54 AM
Holy shit, someone from RR actually said something I agree with.
12/27/2011 8:16:58 AM
The Abrahamic faiths may be far more sadistic, violent and twisted, but when it comes to sheer in-your-face stupidity; no one can topple Scientology in the top spot.
Also, I do agree with the fundie's opinion of Hubbard's writing prowess; Arthur C. Clarke or Isaac Asimov would've done a much better job, fortunately their artistic integrity was on par with their talent.

At least L Ron Hubbard actually existed.
