Is Scientology a Cult? Out of Curiosity ,I attended a few meetings years ago. It cost $50 just for an "Introduction" interview. I was shown what is called an "E-Meter" that is supposed to detect some kind of Spiritual Waves' from the universe. It looked like a cheap electric motor made by a third grader. (This was in 1971 ,mind you). I saw some people just sitting there while being "Audited". Actually ,they sat silent while the Auditor verbally abused them. This was described as a "Communication exercise". I was invited to take a course. Would have cost $350. I left. I have seen many articles about this "Church" since this experience. So, does anyone have any opinions on this?
