What's the talk about?

Scientology has been described in the States as “ruthless, litigious and lucrative” and in this country as “corrupt, sinister and dangerous” yet it boasts global success and has made hundreds of millions of dollars.

 

Thanks to the Internet, it now faces an unprecedented global opposition. The scary secrets of Scientology and its recruitment methods will be exposed in this talk. They will be useful for anyone wanting to set up their own lucrative cult.

Martin Poulter first encountered skepticism while a teenager. He has a philosophy and psychology degree from Oxford and a PhD in Philosophy of Science from Bristol university. He has been a Scientology-watcher since 1995, when he was threatened with legal action over material he posted online. He is an ordained minister in the Church of the SubGenius, which offers eternal spiritual salvation or triple your money back.

Please note that this is not on our usual first Monday of the month as the pub has an event over the Bank Holiday weekend
