    Scientology.
    Religions come and go and some are older than Judaism and both of it's offshoots, Islam and Christianity.

    I doubt though if some of the current cults will make religious status.
    The cult of Palintology is already dying off.
    The Tax cut cult might make it though.

    Scientology is the most wacked out of them all. If you haven't watched the video of Tom Cruise talking about scientology, you've missed a real treat. Of course, scientology has tried really hard to get this video pulled whenever it has been posted, so it may not be at this location for very long.

    Yes whacked out but it is a religion.
    Many/most of them are whacked in some ways.

    It makes about as much sense as any other religion.

    Scientology is a cult, plain and simple.

    I can remember when the founder of Scientology, L Ron Hubbard, was a science fiction author, and not a very good one at that.
