    Crazy stuff, I have been reading about this all weekend. A group called Anonymous have decided to wage war against Scientology, they are attempting to bring down the Church of Scientology (CoS).

    They caused a DDOS attack against CoS's main website bringing it down last week. There are Global (peaceful) Protests planned on Feb 10th outside local COS offices around the planet.

    Your thoughts?

    Re: Scientology

    I haven't really read up on Scientology to be honest with you. It may be something interesting for me to check out later today... It hasn't interested me enough to learn about it.

    Re: Scientology

    http://www.youtube.com/user/Church0fScientology this the Anonymous starting point for call to action against the Church of Scientology (CoS).

    Be extremly careful when speaking out against this dangerous organization. They will lambast and slander all who do so with methodical process. They are trained specifically on how to do so. L. Ron Hubbard actually taught them to "DESTROY" those that attempt to speak out them.

    If anyone saw the South Park episode a few years back that showed what they believe in, 100%

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenu

    The story of Xenu is covered in OT III, part of Scientology's secret "Advanced Technology" doctrines taught only to advanced members. It is described in more detail in the accompanying confidential "Assists" lecture of 3 October 1968 and is dramatized in Revolt in the Stars (an unpublished screenplay written by L Ron Hubbard during the late 1970s). Direct quotations in this section are from these sources. (See also Scientology beliefs and practices)
    Scientologists believe that seventy-five million years ago, Xenu was the ruler of a Galactic Confederacy which consisted of 26 stars and 76 planets including Earth, which was then known as Teegeeack. The planets were overpopulated, each having an average population of 178 billion.[1][2][3] The Galactic Confederacy's civilization was comparable to our own, with aliens "walking around in clothes which looked very remarkably like the clothes they wear this very minute" and using cars, trains and boats looking exactly the same as those "circa 1950, 1960" on Earth. Xenu was about to be deposed from power, so he devised a plot to eliminate the excess population from his dominions. With the assistance of "renegades", he defeated the populace and the "Loyal Officers", a force for good that was opposed to Xenu. Then, with the assistance of psychiatrists, he summoned billions[1] of his citizens together to paralyze them with injections of alcohol and glycol, under the pretense that they were being called for "income tax inspections". The kidnapped populace was loaded into spacecraft for transport to the site of extermination, the planet of Teegeeack (Earth). The spacecraft were identical to the Douglas DC-8 with the exception of having different engines.
    When they had reached Teegeeack/Earth, the paralyzed citizens were unloaded around the bases of volcanoes across the planet. Hydrogen bombs were then lowered into the volcanoes and detonated simultaneously. Only a few aliens' physical bodies survived.

    The now-disembodied victims' souls, which Hubbard called thetans, were blown into the air by the blast. They were captured by Xenu's forces using an "electronic ribbon" ("which also was a type of standing wave") and sucked into "vacuum zones" around the world. The hundreds of billions[6] of captured thetans were taken to a type of cinema, where they were forced to watch a "three-D, super colossal motion picture" for thirty-six days. This implanted what Hubbard termed "various misleading data"' (collectively termed the R6 implant) into the memories of the hapless thetans, "which has to do with God, the Devil, space opera, et cetera". This included all world religions, with Hubbard specifically attributing Roman Catholicism and the image of the Crucifixion to the influence of Xenu. The interior decoration of "all modern theaters" is also said by Hubbard to be due to an unconscious recollection of Xenu's implants. The two "implant stations" cited by Hubbard were said to have been located on Hawaii and Las Palmas in the Canary Islands.

    In addition to implanting new beliefs in the thetans, the images deprived them of their sense of personal identity. When the thetans left the projection areas, they started to cluster together in groups of a few thousand, having lost the ability to differentiate between each other. Each cluster of thetans gathered into one of the few remaining bodies that survived the explosion. These became what are known as body thetans, which are said to be still clinging to and adversely affecting everyone except those Scientologists who have performed the necessary steps to remove them.
    The Loyal Officers finally overthrew Xenu and locked him away in a mountain, where he was imprisoned forever by a force field powered by an eternal battery (Some have suggested that Xenu is imprisoned on Earth in the Pyrenees, but Hubbard merely refers to "one of these planets" (of the Galactic Confederacy). He does, however, refer to the Pyrenees as being the site of the last operating "Martian report station", which is probably the source of this particular confusion.[7] Teegeeack/Earth was subsequently abandoned by the Galactic Confederacy and remains a pariah "prison planet" to this day, although it has suffered repeatedly from incursions by alien "Invader Forces" since that time.

    Re: Scientology

    I knew about the Xenu/ Thetan story but not in that much detail. Sounds like Sci-Fi-intology to me. Was't there some sort of story in the 90's that said Tom Cruise was going to leave the church and then his wife started getting death threats and was reportidly being stalked then once Tom publicly announced he was staying with the church the deat threats and reports stopped? I heard that years back but I don't know if it's true or not. Sounds crazy!

    Re: Scientology

    It's just sad that so many people have invested both their entire lives and money into this dangerous Organization. I hope the media coverage that Anonymous will get for their cause will open alot of people's eyes. I don't believe in some of their tactics, even though they mean well. I do believe that peaceful protests will be the way to go. DDoS attacks and things like that just give Anonymous the wrong kind of media coverage. CoS has actually contacted the FBI to find out who exactly took down their site, they are trying to get it classified as a Hate Crime. I read another article stating that CoS contacted authorities regarding letters that were sent to multiple offices containing mysterious white powder.

    If it was someone from Anonymous, I feel this again it is a step in the wrong direction. Prank powder letters are stupid and dangerous. Authorities could view it as a form of terrorism. However, there is talk (could be rumors, could be true, I don't know) about this actually being started by CoS themselves. Sort of like a reverse propaganda kind of thing to get the public behind them more. They have done similar things in the past.

    Oh, I've had fun a couple of times they pitched me...I even filled out their "test" in such a way they couldn't do their typical "you have great qualities but a couple of things need fixing" song and dance.

    As a psychological approach, Sci is capable of helping some people. As a system of beliefs though it is a pile of crap. It exploits its adherents, and in some European countries it is officially considered a criminal organization. Right on.
