dr. gene scott (mostly for tonyjeffers)
i noticed in the atheist timeline thread that you were involved in scott's movement. i've been somewhat intrigued by him for the last 6 years or so. i've seen all the typical youtube videos as well as werner herzog's fabulous short documentary "god's angry man." the man was definitely charismatic is this twisted, dostoyevskian/kafkaesque way.
despite all of this, it's been surprisingly hard to find a systematic presentation of his unique teachings, if such a thing exists. i once streamed one of his old videos from his website and found it a tremendous mindfuck, complete with an enormous whiteboard that looked like a jackson pollack painting, that i had to turn off after 15 minutes in order to avert a migraine. from what i've heard, his ex-porn star wife turned successor is not any better.
would you condescend to tell us a bit about your experiences in his movement and what drew you there, kept you there, and eventually made you move on? did you actually attend his church in los angeles? i would honestly appreciate it.
