I turned on the tv last night to watch Jeopardy, and I was shocked to see an advert for Narconon. Narconon claims to be a drug rehabilitation service, but are a well known front group for $cientology. I figured they were a dying cult after the Battlefield Earth fiasco, but I guess I was wrong.

Well spotted. You are right – it is Scientology. And the astonishing success stories claimed for it cannot be verified because they will not allow any independent verification of their results. More about Narconon here.

There's some great stuff on Scientology at the Church of Critical Thinking (which is rarely updated these days, alas).

Scientology is making a whacked religious cult promote health talk to get some degree of crediblity. Check it out it was formed by a guy that writes science function books. It has been pursued legally based on its ability to harming others with some ridiculous advice. There is bizarre ritual that only surfaces after they have you hooked. Be very careful this is a dangerous group that gets out of control if you tell the truth about them. There is lots on the internet which reveals there true nature. Some of it has recently surfaced though the aggression of Tom Cruise.

Scary the christians are calling the scientologist crazy! One cult knocking another.

"Be very careful this is a dangerous group that gets out of control if you tell the truth about them."

Yeah just like christians. Bring up the council of nicea and see what happens. Bring up the fact the in hebrew the word elowah is the translatated into god and elohim which is the plural of elowah is translated into either god or angles not gods and see what happens. What about the fact that the bible says beware of false prophets yet people go to church and get spoon fed the bible. Its no different the ignorant seek other for faith the true seek inside themselves for faith.

I agree with one apparent implication of anonymous's comment: Religion should be a private matter.

I remember one cult website that seemed to be a cult itself: Was touting the old lines about Magic: The Gathering and D&D being Satanic. My angry email to them was answered with crickets.
