Aliens, God, and Tom Cruise
Media is an interesting beast. Tom Cruise made this statement when asked if he believed in aliens – “Yes, of course. Are you really so arrogant as to believe we are alone in this universe?” Everyone now feels a new awakening to the possibilities because they do not want to be perceived as arrogant. He receives no criticism and the article I read didn’t even mention his practice of Scientology.
However, if a member of a mainstream religion like a Baptist, Methodist, or Catholic said “Are you so arrogant as to believe you’re the highest power in the universe?” he would be labeled a religious nut, extremist, or insane. So I guess it’s perfectly normal to believe in all-powerful aliens named Xenu who deposited frozen aliens around Earth’s volcanoes 75 million years ago, but having faith in an unseen hand greater than any of us is wacko. Hmmm…. Sounds like the inmates are running the asylum to me.
Tom – if you paid $360,000 to learn about Xenu, you were ripped off. You should ask for a refund.
