I know Scientologist 'know' Scientology works,....but what makes it all so 'Scientific'??I thought religions were by definition non-scientific. Just saying "oooh, it works, it's true, it must be 'science'" doesn't cut it.

I once has a talk with a Scientologist associate of mine - he sounded *quite* like a quack. Like statement like "Well, matter is energy and _thought_ is energy therefore thought has mass and NEGATIVE thoughts have MORE mass than POSITIVE thoughts, and the E-METER read the masses of these thoughts,...so it can be determined how much NEGATIVE thought have,....". Things like this. Really hokey. And to think -I actually respected this guy in scientific matters beforehand! Whew!!

So where's the science? Love potions and hair tonics?!
