Wouldn't you prefer some sort of objective proof? When you buy a car, you don't just say, "I'll believe that this is the best, most reliable, most comfortable, most appropriate car for me." You do a little research, try to collect some opinions on the subject, read some reviews, take it for a test drive, that kind of thing. From what I've read and the people I've talked to, Scientology is an Edsel with a Rolls Royce price tag.

Read a book on cult mind control and see if you don't think you fit all the classic patterns.
