    Link: Powerful Takedown of Scientology - Ron L Hubbard`s great grandson, Jamie DeWolf, makes a brilliant statement about Scientology`s role in his family.

    I`m curious how some of the big proponents of Scientology are reacting to this video. Something this powerful can result in loss of members which ultimately means lost church revenue. In the end it probably won`t ding them too much; they have lots of money to offset this kind of an attack.

    @Boloslov: That`s an interesting thought, but consider the natural human element of cognitive dissonance-- Naturally the scientologists would end up gratifying their adherence to the faith based solely on the fact that the human mind ardently tries to avoid disgust or shame in lieu of their own actions or beliefs. Such examples of this particular behavior was also present in Harold Camping`s followers, who rationalized the "un-apocalyptic" May 21 as an act of clemency by god. Cognitive dissonance is a mode of thought, and a powerful defense mechanism

    That was actually rather good - most of that "beatnic" stuff is pretty much retarded (anyone else remember that video where the girl made the pan of beans (or soup) and then proceeded to cut her pants so she could crap liquid into the can?) - but this guy is quite the orator.

    oh and Gerry1of1: you`re very obviously entertaining.

    He was trashing and praising L. Ron Hubbard at the same time. Felt kinda weird but the end note is that L.R.H. is a god. I`m pretty sure he was just a man.

    Awww, I wanted to see Gerry`s comment. Now I feel out of the loop.

    And I thoroughly enjoyed this. Sure he said nu-cu-lar, sure he may be lying, but I feel inclined to believe him. The way he spoke, the pace, the mood... that was poetry.

    Anyone convinced he was praising Elron in any way is not familiar with poetry. The "God and Man" thing at the end was metaphorical; The father who thought he was a god, and the son who was painfully mortal. Hopefully `nuff said.

    The guy is definitely a story teller. I was hoping it would delve more into the Scientology bit, though. I wanted to hear stories about homemade space ships and family trips to meteor crater sites, or whatever it is that they seem to be infatuated with.

    That was really good. And a few people here seem to be missing the point. At no point was he praising Scientology or L Ron Hubbard. He may have been praising L Ron Hubbard Jr, who he claims was his grandfather and the disowned son of L Ron Hubbard.

    It was interesting and well performed, though a little pretentious. I don`t give much credence to the claim that his grandfather broke with the church because of conscience. I think or more likely is came down to control and money.

    I don`t see why people hates L. Ron Hubbard so much. Criminal? Please. Who`s the victim? If you`re dumb enough to buy into Scientology you deserve whatever you get.

    L.R.H. was a genius for exposing how stupid people are.
