Can some people explain to me the whole deal with him? In my opinion, he is one of the finer actors in the music industry, and I have always enjoyed his movie. Why are people calling him a nut now? I sort of agree with his opinions on mind-altering drugs to an extent.

I don't really know either. I just found it odd that he was in War of The Worlds when he believes in Scientology.

His profession as an actor you mean? I understand that. What I don't understand is why he is getting a recent string of negative critisicm from the media. I have always thought he seemed like a decent enough person.

Because he's fucktarded. Surely you must have heard about that recent interview where he got his ass owned? It was hilarious, the claims he was making (mental powers can cure psychiatric illness and all pills for everything are junk, et cetera), and the way he acted like a ignorant loser and an ass.

Tom Cruise: Super Psychic Not only has he used scientology to cure his dyslexia, but Tom Cruise is also blessed with amazing psychic powers. That's right, he's able to tell in advance which scripts will become great movies!

http://atheism.about.com/b/a/037464.htm And here's some more stuff... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/showbiz/1791617.stm

The Church of Scientology was set up in the United States in 1954 and claims eight million members worldwide. The church offers self-improvement on the basis of the writings of the late science-fiction author L Ron Hubbard, who spelled out principles that he called Scientology and Dianetics.

Fuck, more like "diarrhetics"--Hubbard and Cruise are complete tits.

After reading some interviews and commentary he gave, I can see the outrage surrounding him. But I actually think he has a point, I hate those pills like ritalin and others and I think they don't do shit for the body except provide a short term fix. I don't ever remember hearing about things such as ADHD in the past. Depression, maybe.

Well, he seems a bit...odd, after reading those articles. The whole religion he follows sounds weird.

X-CAfter reading some interviews and commentary he gave, I can see the outrage surrounding him. But I actually think he has a point, I hate those pills like ritalin and others and I think they don't do shit for the body except provide a short term fix.

His point is that it's all shit--not even a short term fix. Sure, there's a fucking pill now for everything someone and his dog could possibly have wrong with them, and a large bunch of it is shit which makes pharmeceutical companies richer...but he and his cult are stating that we should go back to beating lunatics with sticks in order to get the demons out of their heads, as well as other crackpot notions. (It's metaphysical snakeoil, y'all...) Decades of scientific research and clinical study are being farted out his ass, dismissed as nonsense, because the dogma of his cult says so. Anyway, this says it best:

In his book Hubbard argues that it is necessary to discover the "single source" for all of our problems, mental or physical. According to Hubbard, this source can be located in what he labeled "engrams," defined as "a definite and permanent trace left by a stimulus on the protoplasm of a tissue. It is considered as a unit group of stimuli impinged solely on the cellular being." What does that mean? Apparently, it means that engrams are "recordings" made in our brain on the cellular level during times of physical or emotional stress. They are not active memories, but negative engrams do affect us. Hubbard alleges that they cause "...arthritis, bursitis, asthma, allergies, sinusitis, coronary trouble, high blood pressure, and so on." Supposedly, most of our engrams are acquired in the womb - which is, Hubbard says, an unpleasant place because it is "wet, uncomfortable and unprotected." Hubbard claims that these are scientific facts, but he provides absolutely no scientific evidence in support of his claims. The best he can come up with is a false dilemma fallacy, in which he alleges that either the individual cells must be sentient or else the soul must enter us at the time of conception. Fortunately for the rest of us, all of our ills can be cured by having our engrams removed by a specially trained "auditor." Through dianetic therapy, we can be released from these engrams and made "clear." But considering the total lack of empirical verification for any of Hubbard's claims, the only thing very likely to be made "clear" is your wallet. Another important doctrine in Scientology is the idea that, fundamentally, human beings are really "Thetans" - immortal souls which travel from body to body, from life to life. Discovering what happened to us in previous lives is an important feature, thus Scientologists argue that auditing is actually one of their "sacraments," allowing the "Thetan" to become "clear" of past experiences. :n0e: Does Scientology offer any testable claims? Yes, it does - and it should, if it is going to try and call itself a science. Among the claims which can be tested are: it is superior in treating mental illness; it can be 100% effective in improving IQ; it can solve all of humanity's problems; and it is a rational and proven science. Interestingly, none of these claims have actually been supported. Scientology was granted the tax-exempt status of a church in 1993, and today it has about 700 centers in more than 60 countries. It claims to have millions of members, but independent observers say that the numbers are actually quite a lot lower.

Don't blame Tom Cruise for his actions. IT'S THE ALIENS INFESTING HIS SOUL THAT ARE TO BLAME! They are infesting yours too! And can only be removed by joining the Church of Scientology! Join now!

Tom Cruise is an idiot. I do like most of his movies, but I don't like the real person.

Nice qoute on scientology Nordicvs. That's one f***ed up religion! They'll track us down and kill us for bad-mouthing it though, so be careful. ;)
