The tellurian competition is so full of itself these days that it’s reaching for a stars.

Some can’t wait until humans and robots are one. Others don’t wish to stop there. They lift adult their hearts (and, some would say, leave their minds behind) and trust that sacrament and scholarship will shortly be one.

Last week, HBO offering a two-hour documentary called “Going Clear.” This portrayed a trials and triumphs of a Church of Scientology, that seems to hang itself in utterly some galactic promise.

To coincide with this (to me) somewhat unfortunate spectacle, astrophysicist and “Cosmos” presenter Neil DeGrasse Tyson warned Christians that they unequivocally shouldn’t ridicule Scientologists.

He told the Daily Beast: “So, we have people who are certain that a male in a dress transforms a cracker into a verbatim physique of Jesus observant that what goes on in Scientology is crazy?”

The wise-crackering upstarts during “Saturday Night Live” contingency have deliberate this for a nanosecond or dual before deciding: “Nope. Scientology is only a garland of determining nutbags messing with people’s heads to make money.”

Last night they offering a spirited, devout re-rendering of Scientological true celebrating a thought of a church where “religion and scholarship are intertwined.”

Of course, they’re not called Scientologists in this video. Could that be since a church, according to a HBO documentary, is utterly skilful in regulating a law to urge a astronomical aims?

Here, we have a Church of Neurotology, that sounds like something that certain Googlies wish they had invented. Neurotology is “the Secret of Space.”

The Neurotological true sing a praises of their classification out loud. They are exalted. They demeanour like they’re on drugs.

And how are sacrament and scholarship intertwined here exactly? Why, “aliens live inside a minds.” How really efficient. It’s an fortifying jubilee of how “machines can save mankind.”

Why does it all seem so really like a Church of Silicon Valley?

I wish a Happy Easter to everyone, generally to a committed rationalists out there.
