I use to have a very close friend who was a Scientologist.
I went with him to the Celebrity Center in downtown Hollywood.
I went into the mansion and took a "personality test" and watched a lecture and video and got an example of
being "audited" by holding on to the E-meter and being asked a "rundown" of questions.
My point in bringing this up is that it was all great fun!
If you are going to choose a boring religion when a fun religion is available you just don't have a sense of humor.
To wit: what appeals to people and what they end up dedicating their life to is largely a matter of personal taste rather than
an actual search for answers. Imho.
