    To this skeptic it is as legitimate as any other religion.

    You beat me to that response, Scott. Although I would have probably left out the initial prepositional phrase.

    So why not change the thread to "is any religion legitimate?"

    That would be equal opportunity religious skepticism, yes?

    since it has aspects of Mormonism-eternal life /aliens etc. and Catholicism -transmogrification of the soul and extortion -I'd say yes- as both prophets outlived the religion escalating them beyond cult status . L.Ron was a STRANGE dude -see the Babelon working -spelling intentional . he and Jack Parsons -the head of the Jet Propulsion Lab -tried to work a spell to summon the Great Whore of Babylon .
