Guys! GUYS! GUYS!
I JUST BOUGHT THE SECOND MISSION EARTH BOOK AND IT IS SO MUCH WORSE THAN THE FIRST.
Oh my God. I should have thought about it. I should have realized it. IT SHOULD HAVE REGISTERED IN MY BRAIN. The guy was DEAD before the second book could come out. EVERYTHING FROM THIS POINT ON WILL HAVE BEEN EDITED BY HIS DEDICATED WORSHIPPERS AND NOT BY HIM.
Also? The theology of the Church We Shall Not Name? It appears by the second chapter. HE EXPLAINS THINGS. HUBBARD EXPLAINS THINGS.
I'm going to go over into a corner and start rocking and sobbing silently to myself now.
