Christian Scientist or Scientologist? They are 2 different religons. A lot of Hollywood people are Scientologist. Scientology is a religon invented by L. Ron Hubbard who also wrote a lot of science fiction books. The faith/science connection with this show sounds more like Scientology than Christian Science (Christian Science does not believe in medicine. I have a friend who's father almost died because he would not seek medical treatment due to being a CS. They believe prayer and God will heal them.)Originally Posted by Kaky
However, Scientology does not believe in psychology which was much in the news last spring when Tom Cruise attacked Brooke Sheilds about her post partum depression and told her that vitamins were all she needed.
Tom Cruise and John Travolta are 2 actors that are scientologists.
I don't now a lot about either religon, but Scientology sounds more like what you are talking about than Christian Scientist given the way Hollywood all jumps on the same bandwagon at times.
I did find this:
"...the aims of Scientology are: “A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where man is free to rise to greater heights...”
A "utopian society" like what the film in the hatch mentioned along with the other experiments?
