Scientology can go suck eggs.  Atheism is the real deal!

What we see surely isn't what is. Getting past perception, "The Power of Logic" rings like a mighty bell sending out waves to remind us of our ability to think and reason and explore and experiment and separate fiction from fact. I know nothing about scientology. Some of the claims I hear makes no sense to me and does not reveal a natural flow. So, I have no interest in it.
I have full confidence in there being no evidence of god/s and find so much more excitement, meaning, purpose, direction in reasoning than in belief or faith in superstitions 2,000 or 4,000 years old, written by many Bronze Age people who didn't know the difference between potable water and water loaded with deadly bacteria and minerals.
I especially like the role of science in holding "truth" as a placeholder until and unless new information emerges to change one's mind. There is no problem with changing a concept; there is a problem with holding a concept when all evidence shows it to not be confirmed.
Grinning Cat, you've inspired my "Like" to the atheist version.

Scientology may not be traditional theism, but it's still very expensive woo. That paean to "knowledge" ("the fuel of that power is not magic or mysticism") and "the truth", in the original version marketing Scientology, is false advertising.

Someone replaced their ending, starting with "(the one thing that's true is) the power of logic" (vs. "what's true for you"). Nicely done! (Even if a commenter had quibbles about the fonts, etc.)

For what it's worth, the Scientology ad has ratings and comments disabled on YouTube, while the atheism ad, like other atheism videos, has been attracting diverse opinions.

A few more "likes" wouldn't hurt!

EXCELLENT!  Don't know if we could afford network at this point, but an ad like this on the Discovery Science Channel would be PREMIUM!

Grinning Cat, that is interesting! Put the film in the can with two different endings. Well, that should get them more bang for their buck!

Thanks to Joan Denoo for pointing us to this in Politics, Economics, and Religion.

Grab a copy, if you can, while it's still up!

I learned about it from Friendly Atheist... it's an excellent sendup of the ad Scientology ran in certain major markets, such as New York and Los Angeles, to give the impression of a national ad. Needless to say, I prefer this version.
