Does $cientology lie about the cost of auditing?
$cientology's web site says it doesn't cost a lot to take $cientology services. It costs thousands of dollars to go "clear" and about $400,000 to "go up the Bridge." Doesn't that sound like a lot to you? Ask a Scientologist to show you the whole price list. You'll be amazed.

A scientific investigation of the "Oxford Capacity Analysis"&emdash;that pink "personality test"&emdash;in Britain concluded that the OCA "is not a genuine personality test" and that the way $cientology uses it is "potentially harmful." It's never had anything to do with Oxford, either.

Is $cientology a bait-and-switch operation?
First $cientology tells you you're controlled by your "reactive mind."

Why don't they tell you that BEFORE you spend all that money? Would you pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to get rid of dead space aliens?
