Topic | Life After Anti-Scientology

Scientologists, and Ex/Anti-Scientologists, have been on the Internet since the Internet was born. Thus there is a substantial post-Scientology internet culture. These posts are about what I’ve learned after Anti-Scientology.

Marty and Monique Rathbun

Is the Take-Down of Mark & Monique Rathbun Complete?

After throwing darts in every direction, the bumbling duo of Tony Ortega and his anonymous sidekick “TexasLawyer” continue their speculation even after the last papers have been filed in the Monique Rathbun legal case, leaving their “commenting community” just as vengeful and confused as they were before. Obviously, Monique and Marty Rathbun have not done […]

Janet Weiland, Long Time OSA Operative

Sheila From ESMB on Long Time OSA Operative Janet Weiland

In response to seeing Janet Weiland’s name and face again on ESMB after an excellent write up from Fred G. Haseney, detailing how Janet Weiland is trying to get him evicted from his home in LA for criticizing the Church of Scientology, the poster who goes by the name “Sheila” wrote this about her experiences […]

People Who Have Been Harmed By Scientology Deserve Justice

And they deserve closure. No person who is loyal and sycophantic to those who refuse to provide the information necessary to help people who have been harmed by Scientology are likely to be a credible journalistic source for those scrambling to make a buck at Scientology reporting. That’s a long sentence, but if you read […]

Was Karen De La Carriere a Prostitute? We Need to Talk About This, Too.

Karen De La Carriere a prostitute? I’ve been waiting for her to file a defamation of character/libel lawsuit on the Church of Scientology for over a year now. It appears here: http://www.leahreminiaftermath.com/articles/karen-de-la-carriere-white-paper.html This is the most shocking thing I think I’ve ever seen about someone high up in the Church of Scientology – A Class […]

Scientology: It’s Always Worse Than You Think

The exposure of Scientology is a repetitive business. Every year, there are new people coming out of the Church who, no matter how highly trained as an auditor, no matter how many years they’ve spent on staff or in the Sea Org, know very little about the actual subject of Scientology and what it really […]

One Moon

It is said that there is only one moon. It is also said that there are as many moons as there are individuals who are looking at it. Maybe there is one objective reality called The Moon. But I don’t think that even Neil Armstrong has seen it. – Alanzo

Haydn James: The Outer Banks

Scientologist Haydn James on Why Scientology Does Not Work

Mike Rinder posted an article on his blog today that Karen DeLacarriere gave to him from “The Outer Banks”, a super-secret Facebook group that I was joined into without my permission, and then kicked out of because it’s only for the “Key Players”. The guy who kicked me out, Ronn Stacy, told me this three […]

Lambs to slaughter

Sacred Cows + Siege Mentality = Sheeple

Sheeple. An actual mathematical formula for them. I’m not kidding. I think Carl Sagan wrote about it once: Ask Neil Degrasse Tyson. It describes a fundamental property of all human groups: not just Scientists and Scientologists. As social animals, human beings set up rules, both tacit and expressed, to coordinate their efforts in pursuit of […]

The Thinker's Toolkit by Morgan Jones

Hypothesis Testing

There’s a really good book, written by a former CIA analyst, called “The Thinker’s Toolkit”. This book contains 14 tools of structured analysis which can be used to help you figure things out. A structured analysis is a technique that police detectives, FBI agents, CIA Analysts, and others use to investigate something without letting emotions, […]

Read Plato

Another excellent discussion over on Mike Rinder’s blog prompted me to post this solution to the endless tribal warfare between “spiritualists” and “scientists”. Although I almost always disagree with her, Marildi, once again does an admirable job making her case. As well as Eclipse-Girl, Roger Hornaday, and the rest. _____________________________________ marildi says June 17, 2015 […]

Great Posts From the Post-Scientology Internet: Mimsey Borogrove on ESMB

In keeping with not forgetting the positive and constructive parts of Scientology in order to seek to live with the truth, I found Mimsey Borogrove’s opening post on ESMB to be highly relevant. So I am stealing it and posting it here. Here’s the original: http://www.forum.exscn.net/showthread.php?37893-A-positive-viewpoint-what-s-it-worth A positive viewpoint – what’s it worth? ” I […]

It documents the major role that the newsgroup alt.religion.scientology played in the early days of dissent against Scientology and some of the events and people involved. This […]

The Buddha’s Tooth

I read a story that Buddhists tell each other about a Tibetan mother who was a devout buddhist, and who had a son who traveled to India regularly on business. Before a trip the son was going to take to India, his mother asked him to please bring her back something that she could use […]
