    No, Scientology is an insult to Hubbard. At least he wrote a couple of decent books before he ran off to make his fortune on the backs of the gullible.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    This is a non sequitur.

    Just saying it would be better to be remembered as an author than as a scam artist.

    Scientology is a religion. Calling it a "scam" is no different than calling Catholicism a "scam." It's an insult to the good people who practice that religion.

    In regards to Ayn Rand...the proper word is "self-sufficiency"...not selfishness.
    Decent?

    Imo, it was a 1000+ page rambling, nonsensical, bore fest.

    The movie was beyond horrific.

    And Scientology is a joke beyond compare.

    L.Ron Hubbard was a brilliant, emotionally disturbed, vindictive whackjob.

    Religion is a scam. The way the Catholic Church runs, anyone associated with it ought to be insulted by the very fact they continue to be a member.

    Just because someone is 'good', doesn't mean they can't be ignorant/gullible.


    I have said many times:

    All major religions (imo) are for the weak and/or the ignorant and/or the desperate.

    That kind of smug, self-satisfied attitude is for the weak and ignorant. And that's not merely my opinion, it is a fact.
