    Default So I find myself working with a bona fide Scientologist

    Guys, I need some input in things I should be talking to him about. I mean, I had pieced together the fact that he was a scientologist some time ago, but I thought I would never have to work with him again as well. As it turns out, I worked alongside him today, and I'll be doing so again on Saturday.

    Pretty much the first casual conversation issue he brought up was "So this book I've read many times over the years, it's called Dianetics..." and related it somehow to an injury he'd had at one point or another.

    Keep in mind that I have no plans on going all crazy about how Scientology is a scam/fraud or whatever - I still have several hours to spend with the guy, and he's nice enough to me, even if he is a bit of a sanctimonious creep. Rather I'm trying to subtly undermine the faith he puts in his practice of Scientology, like doing engrams, then describing them in detail to me. I'm sure whatever I say will have no long term effect on him, as he has apparently been practising Scientology for longer than I've been alive, but this will be a fun little experiment nonetheless.

    Tell him you need to go one night because you missed your last confession.
    I hear the voices inside my head. They counsel me. They understand. They talk to me.

    First of all you don't mess with scientologists. A friend of mine learned that the hard way.

    I don't think he is particularly high up. He's not very rich, and wealth is pretty important to Scientologists. The only reason I'm working with him is that he's desperate for cash and doesn't want to be rebuilding a chimney on his own.

    Also, he told me Niacin flushes the radiation out of your body, and that's why Narconon works so well.

    The only scienctologist I've met seemed hell bent on conflict. He kept on bringing up religion in every conversation and went on and on about his personal theories and beliefs. I'm glad this guy isn't a dick though.

    That was pretty interesting, nine castles, thanks.

    Mutton: I would assume he would go to Toronto for this, as he lives in Oshawa.

    I wish I talked to blaksun about that. Where is that fgt anyways?

    Tell him you read Dianetics too, but it sucked. Then tell him that you like Dr. Phil better.

    Thanks nine castles I really wanted to read an entire essay using plural pronouns to refer to the singular "one." They they they they probably should teach grammar to the followers of a dumb religion created by a fucking science-fiction writer.

    Tell him that you would like to research his religion further but are afraid the flying spaghetti monster will be angered, so you can't.

    Uh...you do realize that the "essay" that NC posted is an ex-scientologist referring to the thoughts and feelings of current scientologists when being approached (hence the usage of "they") rather than to a singular being, right?
    Telling stupid people they are idiots since 1987

    see this guy is disturbingly subtle - i told him that i've always enjoyed english and he started up with all these anecdotes about a writer who gave simple and effective advice that helped him in his own career. His name just happened to be L. Ron Hubbard. He knows how to slip this stuff into a conversation, and, as much as possible, have it not come off as completely retarded. This is aided by the fact that he's a little weird himself already, so when he says strange things, it's not entirely a surprise.

    also apparently it was too cold to do brickwork today, so we're doing it tomorrow

    Ask him if he's read the bible and start quoting it.

    Stuff like this should make Scientologists Say the Darnedest Things a real website... This guy would be an ultimate source of the shit they pour out of their mouths . Sadly the Fundamentalists will have to suffice for now.

    Word of advice, burn the damn disc. I'm no educator here, and know very little overall about the cult religion, but did Hubbard even intend for this shit to happen?

    EDIT: Just quickly read up on Hubbard. Apparently so. I thought he was original responsible just for Dianetics, however, he did also start the "religion".
