8. Have they thought this thru? Not likely......
I heard a comment (don't know where...) the other day that made me think. If they truly want to push this, they'll be basically accepting anyone's idea of "intelligent design" and as I understand it, scientologists' ideas would NOT mesh well with the whole born-again-rapture-fearing-etc... mindset.

This would be fun to watch over the years, if it weren't so damn serious...
