Regarding your amazing discovery of Sunday, February 24th, 2008: we’re still waiting for you over here. You’ve got some catching up to do. Will you be discovering gravity next? Or evolution?
Don’t bother to let us know.
–The Rest of Us.
For those of you who haven’t been bothering to keep up with the trickle of very dull news, some…let’s call it a ‘newfag’…discovered [no doubt through an epic adventure worthy of Indiana Jones] Dr. A Nordenholz’s Scientologie, Wissenschaft von der Beschaffenheit und der Tauglichkeit des Wissens.
That’s Scientology, Science of the Constitution and Usefulness of Knowledge, for those of you who can’t figure it out for yourselves.
Apparently, this is the ‘smoking gun’ of the decades old crime of plagiarism committed by L. Ron Hubbard. See, he *must* have read it. And that’s where he got the ‘axioms’. And his habit of making up words!
I wonder how long it’ll take for them to discover the 1901 usage by Allen Upward. I’m sure it’s going to be really hard, since it’s only right here. And on wikipedia in all the articles they should probably be reading. And in the books a few of them have said that I should read.
I also wonder whether they’ll be all ‘lol, L.Ron didn’t get the joke!’ when they find out that he [ooh] ‘stole’ it from [gasp] a guy who coined it to mean ‘science elevated to unquestioning doctrine’. [shockhorror]
This is where I admit that I was wrong. They really aren’t doing it right at all. Almost none of them are anywhere near as informed as they need to be to take on Scientology.
People are stupid. Act surprised….
