Maybe we should get some dolls and ask the Haitians where the Scientologists are touching them?

A "religion" based on a science fiction novel written by L. Ron Hubbard. Basically, people are the vessels containing immortal souls of some benign creatures. At some point in the past, some evil space emperor rounded up all these immortal souls with his space cruisers and took them to Earth, where he was somehow able to make them lose all of their memories so they'd be trapped in misery for eternity... or something. I guess Scientology's aim is to help these 'immortal souls' (a.k.a. people) to remember bits and pieces of their past, so that they might somehow break free of this memory-loss conundrum and go back to their true existence.

Key phrase in that explanation: "...based on a science fiction novel..."

Hmm They follow a science fiction novel? It sounds pretty nuts!

I've gotta disagree. This is by far the nuttiest mainstream religion I've ever heard of.

All religion It's pretty equal nutty in some way.

A religion" based on a science fiction novel
A religion" based on a book

Aetherius Society: They believe Jesus, Buddha and Krishna are in fact aliens

Jedi Religion – Jediism
The Jedi Church believes that there is one all powerful force that binds all things in the universe together. The Jedi religion is something innate inside everyone of us, the Jedi Church believes that our sense of morality is innate. So quiet your mind and listen to the force within you!

The Church of Euthanasia. "Save the Planet, Kill Yourself"
The Church of Euthanasia is a weird religion in all its aspects; even the name of the movement is peculiar. This so-called religion was created by Reverend Chris Konda and it promotes the idea that Earth cannot sustain the entire human race anymore.

Aetherius sounds pretty sane compared to the others.

I'd support the Church of Euthanasia, if not for the fact that few people actually want to kill themselves regardless of how miserable they actually are in life.

Church of Euthanasia sounds halfway batty. I respect their ideals, but Christ... the four pillars of foundation of the church are: Suicide, Abortion, Cannibalism and Sodomy. I mean, come on. Cannibalism? And they even limit it to those who are already dead. If they're already dead, then why do you need to eat them?! Their whole notion is that there are too many people and we need to do what we can to purge the world of this plague that we are. I respect that they don't condone murder or any act of life-taking if it's not the person's own will, but the shit is still fuckin' whack.

But I agree, Aetherius at least gives a fathomable explanation to everything behind it. I'd be more prone to condoning a religion like that than most anything else.

Well, church of euthanasia is sick and Utterly Insane organisation. There's no doubt about that.

So that you don't eat other dead animals, and there'll be more food to go around for those who don't agree with you.

I thought it was going to be something like the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement, but apparently I was wrong. Porn in whatever form is not the way to go, especially not on the homepage of your site.

How exactly is it sick and utterly insane?

I'm just having trouble with it. I can keep a fairly open mind about things, but this doesn't make sense to me. What's wrong with eating animals? I didn't see anything about that in my "research" (five minutes of reading wikipedia), but I guess the "more food to go around"(fuck, now I feel like Firecat) does make sense in a way, since they don't believe in forcing their practices and ideals unto others.

But, time to prove Firecat's point: http://www.churchofeuthanasia.org/graphics/new/sexisgood.jpg

Just perusing their "family album" (again?!), came across this picture. Fuck anyone that would condone that kinda shit. They are insane.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
  • Varine Varine:
    How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air
