Just one of Scientology's buildings in Hollywood. This one on Hollywood Blvd.

I don't know much about Scientology. Are they the group founded by a Mrs. Eddy? Anyway, you have raised the bars with this shot.

Great shot, Walter - very well done.

Cal: Scientology was founded by L. Ron Hubbard in the 50s and is, at its core, a huge moneymaking scam- people spend thousands of dollars to take these "auditing courses" which supposedly tell you how to live your life better. as you go up in level, you are privy to more secrets, culminating in the ridiculous Xenu myth (google it). It's a pretty dangerous cult, it seems, because it really terrorizes people who speak out against it and tries its best to do anything it can to discredit its detractors. A couple people who have left the cult have died under pretty suspicious circumstances.

Cal,

Mary Baker Eddy founded the Christian Scientist Church (The Church of Christ, Scientist). In doing genealogy I discovered that one of my husband's relatives got involved with them in the Phillipines in the late 1800's early 1900s. She was based in Boston, Massachusetts.

I haven't really read much about the religion but my husband's relative sure had some strange ideas about things. He had a "widow's walk" on the roof of his home that had a light on 24 hours a day said to light the way of Jesus to his home. Not sure if this had to do with his religion or just him. This widow's walk supposedly had no entry to it. (Not quite sure how he changed the light bulbs when they went out.)
