THEN there are the MANY people who try Scientology and leave before ever reaching the state of clear.
Before reaching clear? You mean before even taking the TRs or Communications Course!
Come to think of it, I just posted a link to someone's statement in this thread, http://forum.reachingforthetippingpoint.net/index.php/topic,5305.msg12520.html#msg12520, who is not on the list, Edwin Bickel. If anyone would like to add it to the wiki, please feel free to do so. His statement, which was made on ARS in January of 2002, is here:http://www.holysmoke.org/cos/seven-pages-deleted.htm
His name has been added. Thanks for mentioning him.
