another journey on the path to enlightenment

so either because Katie Holmes is converting or because I was sooo incredibly bored at work today I thought that I would check out the scientology website. I had and still have no clue what it all was about, I might read Dianetics, but that is only partly because Kate said something about them believing about having aliens inside them...not that I want to believe that, but I am willing to make fun of those that do. Anyway, on their website they have this personality test and of course for a full explanation of the results I can always go and visit one of their centers/churches in the local area...according to my preliminary results either they think that (or I think subconsciously) that I am not appreciative of other people...which I don't think is the case, but I think that they make the test results so that you will become worried that you aren't doing something well that you think that you are doing well and come in to visit them....then bam! you and your wallet are sucked into their vortex.

The entire time I was on their website I kept thinking about all of the Kabbalah stuff I have been researching and it goes along with that a bunch of these groups are just giving very rich people excuses to feel good about being rich. Apparently someone, somewhere said that all money was bad, but I do think that it is entirely possible to be a good person and have money at the same time, it is just how you expend your resources....but if Kabbalah is telling you that by just talking to people you don't know (re: any person wanting your autograph or the paparazzi saying look here look here!) you can become a "being of sharing" and a better person, then that is much easier than trying to be a good person...or in scientology were you buy your way to the top...if you make spirituallity too simple, it loses all semblence of purpose....maybe I should write all of this down and make a couple of million dollars being a self-help guru as well.

I am suspicious of religion in general but there is a special place of paranoia reserved for a religion founded by a science fiction author. Not even a very good sci-fi author.
