I don't know Zinj. Scientology turned out to be a good deal more of a challenge than I originally thought. It has been like pulling out some awful weed where you find that 95% of it is underground. I have been surprised at the depth to which scientology has corrupted the government and the sluggishness of social immune reactions to become aware of the damage. The problem with scientology is that you can teach them to leave the net alone, because the organization does not learn, or it learns painfully slowly. Hubbard imposed his madness on scientology in detail and that madness still controls scientology. On the other hand, we are certainly well along in the project. I have not seen it, but Ava produced a declaration recently which gave a membership number for scientology (US I think) of 45,000. They have claimed as high as 9 million, now they admit to 1/2 of one percent of that number. I suspect tangling with the net has cost them about 75% of members since 1995. The most likely thing which will take scientology management down is an internal revolt. If the top management continues to act as mad as the have been doing, it is only a matter of time. Keith Henson
