Scientology v. Christiany

Sometimes you find real gems deep down in the comment section of a post in on of the big blog sites.

This one find in the Slashdot article “Surprise Arrest For Online Scientology Critic.” Obviously there are many comments for an article like this with the typical Slashdot crowd and I was about to veer off to other things when this caught my eye.

Somebody had summarized the OTIII story as:

“The head of the Galactic Federation (76 planets around larger stars visible from here) (founded 95,000,000 years ago, very space opera) solved overpopulation (250 billion or so per planet, 178 billion on average) by mass implanting. He caused people to be brought to Teegeeack (Earth) and put an H-Bomb on the principal volcanos (Incident II) and then the Pacific area ones were taken in boxes to Hawaii and the Atlantic area ones to Las Palmas and there ‘packaged’. His name was Xenu.”

which was obviously considered as rather loony, but was then countered with another better known and not so secret summary:

As opposed to, say, the belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree…
