Scientology on Campus: Stress Test a Lie
The Notherner (Idependent Student Newspaper of Northern Kentucky University).

As I walked into the Student Union this morning I noticed that Scientologists were administering “free stress tests” to gullible students passing by. I was shocked. NKU has played host to plenty of crackpots in the past, but Christian fundamentalism is, at least, a silly idea with roots here in Kentucky. For the uninitiated, Scientology is a pernicious cult created by a science fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard. Legend goes that, in the 1950’s, Hubbard entered into a bet with another writer to see which of them could codify their fictions into a living, breathing religion. This alone should be enough to give one pause when dealing with these people.

While it may seem unfair to label Scientology a cult considering the fact that virtually every major religion began in much the same way, I simply don’t care. The last thing this campus, let alone the world, needs is another body of un-falsifiable gibberish to be revered. The Church of Scientology is infamous for using litigation to silence and terrify its critics while cloaking itself in the language of tolerance. The freedom of groups like this to operate is the price of a free society, but the marketplace of ideas demands that nonsense be checked by the products of clear thinking.

It is an untruth which seems to have become some sort of oft quoted apocryphal story which few people question.

There is just no evidence of a bet and the student paper needs to be corrected otherwise it gives the cult an excuse to discredit everything else which is true in the article as "bad research".

I know of one college student who, after $cientology found him, was persuaded to drop out from his studies and become a $cientology staff member. I expect that practice is looked on by $cientology recruiters as a successful action. My opinion is that the risk of having students persuaded to drop out from their studies is all the justification needed for telling the $cientology organization to pack up their gear and get off the university property.

I believe that university campuses are private property and as such the people involved with them do not need a reason to evict interlopers.
