Xenu - "In Scientology doctrine, Xenu is a galactic ruler who, 75 million years ago, brought billions of people to Earth, stacked them around volcanoes and blew them up with hydrogen bombs." It's not a joke. They actually believe this.

The South Park episode "Trapped in the Closet" explains what Scientology believes.

Scientology's secret teachings

What makes the cult special is that its teachings are secret. You have to pass through various stages and pay large amounts of money before you can read them, and it protects these secrets using all the legal machinery at its disposal.

The "secrets" are nonsense of course, and all this is a device to protect them from analysis and criticism. Unfortunately for the cult, you can now save your money and read its teachings at sites all over the world.

Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis is asked about the cult's secret teachings by Martin Bashir in Oct 2009.
Davis gets furious and storms out.

Scientology is stupid (the John Dixon affair, July 2010)

Scientology is, of course, deeply stupid. And everyone must be free to say so.

Banned in Iran: This site is banned in Iran.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
