Want to make money? Start a religion

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

...so said L Ron Hubbard, who then followed his own advice and set up the Church of Scientology which, according to this estimate brings in something like $500 million a year. Most unsurprising fact revealed: Tom "thumb" Cruise has donated $25 Million. Most upsetting fact: $7.5 million came from Bart Simpson (well, Nancy Cartwright who is the voice of the little scamp).

Say it ain't so Bart!

Why is it that these people, who obviously are not idiots, can think that they can buy their way into an afterlife? Seriously, WTF?!

Plus, don't they ever think about where there millions of dollars are going? Everyone knows religion is all about money. It's just disheartening to know that people can be so easily fooled. Plus, when it's famous people acting like fools it sets up weak minded individuals to follow.
