Re: Conditions for Ceasefire I oppose Scientology because it's raison d'etre, apparently, is the "world wide obliteration of psychiatry." Psychiatry is an applied science, and within science disputes are settled via appeals to rules of evidence, not political, financial, or physical coercion. Perhaps Scientology's scare tactics will persuade lawmakers to cut off funding for neuroscience researchers so that more money can be spent on Narconon clinics. This might be good for Scientology's war chest. However, it would not advance our understanding of the brain or the mind one jot.
