Selling existing faith is the small money. Go big Like L.Ron Hubbard and just create an entirely new business.

One where the star-rating of your suite in the great death starship is determined by your contributions to the cause.

Jip, Scientology is the second largest growing religion in Africa, second only after the Catholic church.

Ironic actually, where the RCC promotes condomless sex, the schientologists promotes faith healing, so the one side encourages the diseases and the other side kills 'em off. Sorta justice in a sick way. :P

I'm actually a bit of a fan of Scientology in a strange way (while at the same time being appalled by the damage it does).

Firstly I suppose because I like science fiction so I find a religion based on science fiction pretty cool (even if it is crap science fiction, beggars can't be choosers).

But more importantly because it is such a great way to point out to believers that their "way of knowing" is nonsense. I mean if you can accept Jesus on faith, why not the imprisoned souls of space aliens? Just because it sounds ridiculous to you, doesn't mean you can condemn others for believing it, if that's how you think knowledge can be obtained. Scientology is like the FSM, but with genuine believers (apologies to any committed Pastafarians out there, but we know you don't really mean it).

Oh and rwenzori, much as I applaud your idea, I think Faith has to be a root vegetable. Unseen until the harvest and all that. How bout Faith Like A Carrot. Faith that gives you better night vision :)

No. Perhaps I need Faith Like Meatballs.
