[VIDEO] The Scientology Experience, Part 1: Getting In

Hello everyone.

I’ve offered quite a few facts, views and opinions about Scientology over the past almost two years and I’ve been very happy to see the positive effects this has created with so many people on my channel. My efforts have been an attempt to be a kind of whistle blower to the abuses and damage that Scientology causes to anyone it comes in contact with. While it wasn’t my original goal to do this, my channel has been a sort of documentary of my own recovery from the cult and the progress I’ve made in re-integrating into the real world through learning and using critical thinking skills.

[VIDEO] What is Wrong (and Right) About Religion

It’s time for us to have a talk about the subject of religion.

To say that religion is a hot topic for some people is the understatement of the ages. It’s even possible that you may be become upset with me over something I say here even though nothing I’m about to say is meant as a direct attack on anyone’s personal beliefs. Continue reading

[VIDEO] Is Knowledge Power? – How We All Get Fooled

Today I’m going to talk about the power of knowledge, of knowing things, and how those who can manipulate the information you have can manipulate you in ways you wouldn’t believe possible.

[VIDEO] Scientology vs Jehovah’s Witnesses: A Talk with Lloyd Evans

Lloyd Evans is an ex-Jehovah’s Witness and now an advocate against the destructive cult practices of that group. He has a YouTube channel under the name “John Cedars” and a website at http://jwsurvey.org. For the last three years he has been campaigning hard, doing excellent work to expose the crimes committed in the name of religion.

Lloyd and I decided to collaborate to compare the practices of Jehovah’s Witnesses and Scientology, since they are both destructive cult practices which follow the BITE model as described by Steve Hassan in his book Combating Cult Mind Control.

[VIDEO] A Peek Behind the Curtain of Scientology – Part 2

Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard created the Scientology religion and ran it as a sort of dictator for many years until he died in 1986. Like all destructive cult leaders, Hubbard created a culture that centered around his ideas being the most important things in the universe and that personal salvation was only possible if people followed what he said to the letter.
