    I find if interesting that though the secrets of the universe are so incredibly mysterious and so incredibly deep, so fascinating and powerful and deserving of almost sacred respect... that anyone who is simpleminded enough to think they have any answer, let alone a scientological one, is not bright enough for any kind of leadership role.

    Sure, pragmatics is important. But anyone who believes in any kind of religion is not taking their role as thinker serious enough.

    However for a religion he is a scientologist, would you vote for him?
    If he was really a politician I could believe in with a platform I could support; I'd still vote for him. Though I'd still promote the "Free Xenu" movement.

    I would vote for him without a thought, as we would need him to protect us from the great lord xenu when he returned to earth on his DC-9 to suck the thetons from our bodies to transport them into a new world where they could be reprogrammed in a place like hawaii yet again to try and restart his perfect civilization.........


    Well, that's assuming his political beliefs are the same as mine and I actually believe he would uphold them and isn't just going to flip flop immedietely on me.

    I have the political believe that all who believe in scientology should be killed.

    Topic Fail.

    Reality? Do you have the foggiest notion? An ephemeral bit of wet chemistry, living on a rock, in a vacuum, for an insignificant bit of time?

    Let me assure you that you do not. You have a construct in that cephalic neural mass that you seem to be so proud of that is a preposterously simplified model of a tiny sliver of a minuscule subset of a microscopic sampling of a few of the properties of the local physics that you have the conceit to call “reality.”

    You still don’t understand how that brain operates. Most of the mass of the universe can’t even be defined by the science in which you no doubt place your faith.

    The workings of your own mind are largely a mystery, with one theory after another being discredited.

    The multi-dimensional geometry of the space you so passively occupy is beyond your ability to conceptualize, as are the reasons why a given frequency and magnitude of light produces a sensory phenomenon that we call “red.”

    You fail to understand yourself, yet offer opinion on the internal functions of others.

    And yet you have the gall, the conceit, to tout the superiority of your grasp of reality.

    You are as a child who has learnt his first rhyme believing that he understands the nature of symphonic music. You grope in the dark for crumbs of understanding. Just like every other human that ever lived.

    If this make you feel better about yourself, it probably shouldn’t

    Over something for which there isn't the merest shred of objective evidence?

    HELL YES!

    Thanks for playing.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I think you missed the sarcasm. If I had the political view that all who follow scientology should be killed, and person running for office agrees with my political views and is a scientologist, he would have to kill himself.

    Sarcasm about what exactly? Were you just saying that to say point out a flaw in the original premise?
