Despite the fame the religion has obtained by recruiting famous figures, it is becoming hard to control the many people who think differently. Scientology is a cult and it has the characteristics of a scam. Scientology’s founder L. Ron Hubbard intended to create a religion that could return people’s happiness
The argument from religious experience seems to state that we can experience God and therefore God must exist, for surely what we experience must be real. William James, American psychologist and philosopher, worked to expand on and validate this topic. James defined religious experience as ‘The feelings, acts and experiences of individual men in their solitude, so far as they apprehend themselves to stand in relation to whatsoever they may consider divine.’ He then identified the four types of mystical experiences: ineffable, noetic, transient, passive. An ineffable experience is one that cannot easily be articulated. It is too big a thing for words and therefore not necessarily understood by those who have not experienced it.

The United States was built by many races that emigrated from there home countries, which ultimately developed into one of the most prosperous countries of all time.

Diana and the Celebrity Culture The media influences our perspective on a lot of things. They can change the way we see politics, religion and celebrities.

The four main reasons for the collapse of the empire are Economics. Power (Army), Religion and Power (Emperor). The first reason for the collapse of the empire is Economics. I can support this as the roman emperors spent a lot of money on showing off to others, making others feel jealous and for their own pleasure. Some of the things they spent it on were golden statues of themselves, banquets that were very expensive and clothes made out of the finest, unique fabrics instead of trying to develop the infrastructure of Rome.
Maybe it is because Catholicism has been around for so long. Maybe it is because it is the largest religion in the world. Maybe it is because of the wealth, the pageantry of the Vatican, or the many spots in history that the religion played such a large role.

Cultural Theory and Popular Culture (2006) it reads, “As Tony Bennett (1980) points out: “as it stands, the concept of popular culture is virtually useless, a melting pot of confused and contradictory meanings capable of misdirecting inquiry up any number of theoretical blind alley,”’(Storey1). It further sates, “Part of the difficulty stems from the implied otherness which is always absent//present when we use the term ‘popular culture.’ This is the premise that has prompted this discussion…otherness; by itself otherness is fine because the world is a melting pot of various cultures, backgrounds and it what makes the world beautiful and flavorful. Imagine if there was no salt just sugar or no sweet just bitter.
But let us not forget that these celebrities are often persuaded into doing things that they aren’t really interested in doing for the sole purpose of boosting their popularity in society. Lets face it; drama sells for these individuals. If Madonna got a new tattoo, it would be headlining news on all the gossip TV shows and magazines. This is not an acceptable way to get people to like you. Celebrity or felon, tattoos all carry the same message to me.
