Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L.

I bought a new copy of HoM a couple of months ago. The BSO was a tad reluctant to sell it, but seeing I was determined to buy it allowed me to have it. I felt a bit bad about giving them the money, but, well, I thought I'd given quite a bit more to the DEDF anyway. I just wonder if any Finnish newspapers would be interested in publishing a book review I might possibly write... ]:-> Of course, I'd be careful to directly translate only small excerpts of it, and Xenu forbid I'd fail to treat the text with utmost reverence, letting Hubbard speak for himself. I could've bought a set of tapes describing the Markabs too, but didn't even ask about the price. BTW, I'm going to pick up a copy of the Finnish police records on the Penet raid tomorrow -- or today, really <yawn>. If I find anything interesting there, I'll translate and post it. Regards, Taneli PS. I saw Robert Marcus' threatening postings and his lame "apology". Appalling! But clearly, it shows you're doing a darn good job (as if that wasn't obvious already). Just keep diggin' up the good stuff, Ma'am! I feel your courage is a powerful source of inspiration. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: 2.6.2i iQBVAwUBMAw2eFQTd+d351vlAQHnygIAw9ph70oaMA8kekSD22LJBi+aGovJTrVa LCewH0GlINQ8OTzibw24AsRzComrwBeOs8pXTng+/Orc4QbIFGjJNQ== =AWoi -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- T.
