Blog: Critical Q&A 123 - 2017-08-27
The weekly show where I answer viewer questions left in the comments section of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, the questions I answer are:
(1) When you began questioning your beliefs in Scientology, I imagine that ended up completely destroying everything in your life that you had built as a Scientologist. Do you have the courage to continue questioning your present beliefs, or are you done questioning things for a while?
(2) Did they have a pomp-and-circumstance type of funeral for L. Ron Hubbard or were they cavalier about his body, thus not giving much ceremony to his death but rather choosing to focus on the idea that he had gone to Target II? How does a Scientologist deal with death? Are they discouraged to mourn because the dead (especially if old) are now moving on to a better situation? How will one know in a future lifetime that they signed a billion year contract if they were in the Sea Org? If they miracuously "would know" somehow, how come there are not those that have died of say some disease in 1972 that are not now saying, "Okay, I'm a different person but I remember I signed a billion year contract in the Sea Org, so here I am again?" And if you didn't show up to fulfill your billion year contract, would you be in breach of said contract and if so, what and who would enforce the punishment?
