Scientology TV. Coming To Save Us All

Last night in Clearwater, Scientology leader David Miscavige revealed that Scientology TV is now an app which is downloadable for both Android and Apple systems, and that programming will begin streaming on the app, and at DirecTV, tomorrow night at 8 pm Eastern.

Wheeeeeeee!  Just what we need.  This may be a laugh riot.  What can Scientology put on their TV channel that anybody would want to watch?

Scientology promises Scientologists great OT powers and abilities for those who become OT 7's and 8s.  Of course they cannot prove any of that so it's probably a good idea to avoid the whole subject.
Rail and rant about all those Scientologists who left and criticized Scientology publicly?  Probably some of that.  But the optics aren't good to overdo that.  As Mark Twain said, "It's the hit dog what yelps".
Peddle their phony organizations such as Narcanon?  Probably a lot of that.

Scientology has long used psychiatry as a handy whipping boy to divert attention from their own many failings.  Expect more of that.  Try to rebut charges of their Fair Game attacks on critics?  They have long done this and have long disputed that they did this.  This is a cult though, that even as their website claims Scientology dropped the Fair Game policies in 1968, has argued after that date in at least two courts of law that Fair Game is a part of Scientology's scriptures and is thus protected religious speech under the first amendment.  How they handle this is going to be interesting.

The thing is, their many critics will be watching this TV nonsense and will be right on top of any bullshit like Trump on a cheeseburger.  Expect fireworks.

Ha - "like Trump on a cheeseburger" - I like that! ;-D

Or maybe "like trump on a porn star" - that would also work.  :azn:

I can only think how heavily moderated and regulated the fuckup of a minefield in ideology and politics it's gonna be. I mean, the amount of trigger words associated with Scientology is off the charts! Xenu! Thetans!

No, aliens had to build the pyramids because the Jews ran away.

The Egyptians build the pyramids and willingly. The Jews weren't even there.  There is no archeological evidence of the Jews in Egypt in any large numbers.

True ... small numbers of Hebrews or Jews at various times in Egypt.  But then this isn't a story written by Egyptians.  The greatest Jewish presence was during the heyday of Alexandria, under the Romans (until 115 CE failure of multiculturalism).  Egyptians prove that all the people can be fooled all the time.  Hapiru (not Jews) were just one category of Semite (the other being Shosu (bedouin).  Hebrews were mixed race people who were hirelings.  Like Hindus, Egyptians considered herding to be "unclean" and hired others to do it for them.  The best place for seasonal fodder was the E Nile Delta aka Goshen.  Hapiru were also employed as mercenaries.  Jewish mercenaries were employed in Elephantine (1st cataract, Upper Egypt) in the Persian period.  At that time they were at (Leontopolis in Greek), NE of what is now Cairo.  The actual history is ... a mix of myth and legend.  Look up Hyksos.  By Persian time, they were Judeans and Samaritans, not Hapiru.  The Tanakh (OT) as we now have it was written in the Persian period, with last bits written after the conquests of Alexander, but before the Romans.  And both during the Persian period, and before, there was more than one Jewish Temple.

The actual polemic ... goes back to the first Pharaoh, long before Abraham.  There was always a battle between nomadic peoples and settled peoples.    Egypt had to face Libyans to the W, Nubians to the S and Semites to the E.  And often particular ethnic groups were specialists in particular parts of the economy, because of trades being handed down from father to son.  Kenites for example were traditional itinerant metal workers (in the Bronze age).  Until recently itinerant iron workers were providing iron kiln technology on a village by village basis in the Sahel of W Africa.  There would be clan based animal husbandry and different clans for full time fishing industry for example.  The common man however was a fellahin (in Egypt) a irrigation farmer, often working as a serf.

I don't hate Greco-Romans.
I just feel like we are braver than them.
