So, is there anyone who agrees that scientology is a fair religion and should gets tax breaks? Because quite frankly i feel if they get it, shouldnt the church of google? I have been doing research on the topic and found that scientology walks outside the line of religion and is more a buisness that charges people to be able to get higher in the churches level system and for there so called healing product "auditing". I know its probably an old topic but seeing that the group anonamous has started protesting against the church, I figured it would be a good topic for debate.

Why The Church of Google Should Have IRS Religion Status (http://gozkino.com/?p=11)

October 13th, 2006 by acachinero
thechurchofgoogle.org (http://www.thechurchofgoogle.org/)
A recent creation, this is a site which revolves around the ‘worship’ of Google and its products. Although many may take it as a ’spoof’ religion, many religious people have in fact sent hate mail to this organisation (I hope the word organisation doesn’t offend anyone this time round), which leads one to believe there are people out there who take them seriously.
The site is basically a small collection of information about the CoG and user forums for discussion about religion and about the Google ‘worship’ itself.
I registered for the heck of it, but I was sold within the hour. And what’s more I would argue for the people behind this to take it a step further and submit their ‘religion’ to IRS for official religion status (which would also make them tax-deductible donor applicants).
Why? Here’s why the CoG is a perfectly reasonable religion:
It’s based on the worship of something ethereal but useful
Every religion is basically selfish. Even the Buddhists, who are all about rejecting material posessions, seek enlightment in order to escape our hideous material world. Prayer is a way of (trying) to achieve one’s desires, no matter how noble they may be.
The CoG is about the admiration for a company which actually makes the lives of people better. The internet, and for that matter, today’s society, would not be the same without Google. Admiration for this ‘enabling’ power is not something that outlandish.
OK, corporate worship. Give me one religion which isn’t a multi-national corporation
OK, I’ll shoot myself in the foot by naming the Buddhists before moving on. That aside, for all the virtues of, say, Catholicism, it does not stop it from being a multi-billionare worldwide organisation which promotes its own agenda (here is where every religion share common ground). Very, very few religions are exempt from being global superpowers (including in economic terms). Besides, the CoG is not a subsidiary of the Google Corporation. They are not sponsored. It’s a couple of guys moving some strings and having some fun (with too much free time on their hands, as some may have it, but who is anyone to say what people can do with their own time…). They do not share in the affluence of Google, which makes them far mor redeemable than many established religions.
It is a completely peaceful religion
It’s hard to get worked up about this religion. Eddie Izzard (http://www.eddieizzard.com/), a British comedian, spoke of a similar issue with supposed Jihads of the Church of England, which has no morals to get worked up about (other than ‘Cake or Death!’). It’s hard to go around threatening people with death if they don’t use Google. In fact, despite the strict tounge-in-cheek Ten Commandments (10 Commandments of Google (http://www.thechurchofgoogle.org/Scripture/10_Commandments.html)), the CoG ‘Ministers’ are all about freedom of choice and individuality. It’s a very relaxed community - you won’t be seeing Googlist Fundamentalists hijacking planes for a long time.
At the base level, it’s a worship of human knowledge
Let’s face it. Google has no real ‘original’ content. They don’t write content (if you don’t count their blogs and their user interface), they provide easy access to it. In fact, unlike Wikipedia which indexes its own content, Google provides everything there is on the internet on a subject.
Religions are about the worship of the ethereal. There is nothing ethereal more grand or worthy of worship than human knowledge (purely in my opinion). It’s taken us 2 million years to accumulate knowledge to this point - the internet made it available, and Google made it available to a mastodontic range of people. That is truly admirable, despite setbacks in China *ahem*.
If Scientology has a right to IRS religion status, so does CoG
Seriously. I don’t think there’s anyone out there who seriously doubts Scientology is the biggest scam of the century. They recently opened shop in Madrid, close to where I live, near the friggin’ Parliament and the Palace Hotel (which are not the same thing, incidentally, I don’t know how to phrase urban geographic descriptions very well). As a natural curious as I am, I went in, where I was immediately assaulted by a very attractive stewardess, who invited me to take some strange IQ test and buy some books.
I mean, the Crusades for the Catholics and the Islamic Empire for Islam were pretty raw and violent periods of expansion - my experience in the ‘House of Scientology’ in Madrid felt like being attacked in the Middle Ages. I ran away within the minute.
Besides, there’s a lot of shady (http://www.xenu.net/) stuff going on there. That Scientology managed to achieve official IRS religion status boggles my mind. That any other religion shouldn’t get this exact same recognition seems beyond discussion if Scientology is allowed to (that sounded a leetle babyish http://gozkino.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_razz.gif ).
So there it is! Many congratulations to the Church of Google (http://www.thechurchofgoogle.org/) for a fine idea, and the best of luck in the future.
In case anyone wonders, I’m a non-practicing Eastern Orthodox Christian who believes in Science and Fact above all else (although I respect my family traditions).

I don't know about the tax thing, but I think that any time you mention something it gives them press. So, they probably don't care how you feel, they are already an extremely wealthy and revered group. Even though people think it's a cult, most have heard of L. Ron and his ideas somewhere along the road. In fact the idea of "looking up definitions of words" is the same among CoG and CoS...

So, let's get over it.

Yeah, I saw that quiz. Decided not to take it. They also have a process called auditing. Now, auditors are known to have the same blood-sucking abilities as lawyers, but the personality of an accountant.

Knowing the type of person that does auditing, I wouldn't want to go through their process. Let alone pay for it: it's about $500 for it or something.

Some reviews:
Dianetics purports to be a system better than clinical psychiatry, but it offers none of the verifiability or credibility of its alternative. The method presented in this book is harmful and dangerous and the style of writing is simply awful - a poor and sub-literate attempt at legitimized science fiction. I cannot recommend this book or the practice that it teaches to anyone for any reason.

The language is childish, most of the ideas are laughable. Don't be fooled by the word science in the title, look the word up in the dictionary - there is no science in this book,[...]


But anyone interested in mental health would do much better to read something written more recently, by a social scientist, and not by a sci-fi writer who wanted to create a religion.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! THE DARK ONE XENU IS COMING BACK!!!!

This book is a complete farce. Wow. So some man who was quoted as saying: "the best and most surefire way to make a million bucks is to invent a religion," wrote a bunch of junk called Dianetics, one of the cornerstones of Scientology. The guy was a horrible scifi writer and this was his get rich quick scheme.

Hey - you could start a Company lease-to-buy scheme.

Option to change every 18 months?
hehehehehe
there are so many places i don't want to go with that...:icon_lol:

define 'company'?
what are the options?
upgrades?
are there roaming charges?
is there a long distance plan?
can you dual boot without damaging the FAT table?
what are the productivity benefits of going from
Girlfriend 6.4(with security updates) to
Wife 1.0(no updates available) ?

Don't wanna nit-pick, but Tag this sentance is a bit redundant.

FAT is File Allocation Table obviously. So FAT table is saying File Allocation Table Table.

It's the same as saying a NIC Card.....network interface card card.

Sorry.....just ignore me.

I believe Matthew has some sage words here...
"Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgement that you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get." (Matthew 7,1&2)

1. You spelled sentence incorrectly
2. Surely the *sentence* is not a bit redundant but the word table?
3. How can anything be *a bit* redundant? That's like being a bit dead!

(I needed that :D)

ok, lemmee try to clear this up
I'm aware of FAT
but was (badly attempting)
to use the allusion
of 'fat' & 'table'
they kinda go together
but apparently
the computer allegory
didn't work

damn
rzm,
you need to drink more
and catch up to catch
up with my illusion/allusions

hehehe:D
