Scientology in a World of Hurt

Anonymous just declared war on Scientology! Anonymous has less lawyers, but much stronger numbers in general. Let's hope anonymous wins.

Zoo Race

Possibly one of the funniest and most inept game demos ever, and the fact that it has to do with Noah's Ark and Christianity just gives the cherry on the sundae:

The No-God Squad: In Their Own Words

This video has been around for a while, but for anyone who finds themselves speaking for (or against) Dawkins, Dennett, Harris, and Hitchens, it would really be best to hear their own open opinions.

Tom Cruise on Scientology

You think Tom Cruise is creepy now, wait until you see The Cruise Indoctrination Video Scientology Tried To Suppress. Unfortunately the video has been suppressed from YouTube, but it is made available by The Gawker web site.

"When you're a Scientologist, and you drive by an accident, you know you have to do something about it, because you know you're the only one who can really help."

I thought that Cruise's "you're either for us or against us" was especially creepy.

Religious Irony on Dallas Top 40

"Kidd Kraddick in the Morning" is the morning show for KHKS 106.1 "KISS" FM, a popular Top-40 station here in Dallas that's also popular with my wife for their support of her favorite musician, Elliot Yamin. As such, it graces our clock radio and tends to wake me on a regular basis.

Although there's usually some ridiculous conversation in progress when the alarm trips, this morning's was especially interesting and ironic. The group was discussing the recent viral video of Tom Cruise blathering on about Scientology, which they had placed on their website. Show member "Kellie Rasberry" [sic] was defending his comments in the video, with the argument that all religious people think that they have the Answer, so she didn't think he should be criticized.

That alone tickled me awake, but then she offered the following case in point, which I'll paraphrase:
"Everyone thinks Tom Cruise is crazy for thinking that aliens live inside each of us, but as Christians we believe that the Holy Spirit lives inside us, so is he really so crazy after all?"
Oh, the irony, it is so delicious...
