Hey thats great! How much did it cost you to have someone wave an ohm meter in front of your body to help you remember these past lives and scare away the ghosts? (Who ya gonna call???)

As for buying Dianetics, I thought the only people who did that were existing members (to keep it on the best seller list...) I seem to remember reading something in Time about bookstores finding pricetags already on the books...

Of course if you could offer a little proof to your claims of immortality or us being spirits- I'd love to hear about it,as I'm sure the folks on sci.skeptic would...

Sorry, but I think I'll stick to forms of religion that don't offer services at exponentially growing prices... Athiesm works for me...
