Top 5 Weirdest Religions

We can all agree that the religion is a private matter and that it should not be discussed. Keeping your beliefs for yourself is the smartest thing to do, because not everybody wants to hear your endless explanations and views on certain god, heaven or hell. If you are going to practice it, it should be intimate, only for you and it would be good if you don’t bother others the same way they don’t bother you with their beliefs or disbeliefs. However, besides the several big religions known in the world, there are some more that are kind of odd even for everyone’s taste. The list contains Top 5 Weirdest Religions

#1. Scientology

Yes, it takes the first place on the list. Most people who are not practicing have a strong belief that this is an odd religion more connected with worshiping of strange things. Also, the ones who are practicing it are becoming weird and kind of annoying (yes Tom Cruise). The Church of Scientology is a cult created by L Ron Hubbard (Elron) in 1952 as an outgrowth of his earlier self-help system called Dianetics. The Church of Scientology preaches (if that is the right word for what they do) that at the higher levels of initiation (OT levels) mystical teachings are imparted that may be harmful to unprepared readers. Those teachings are not presented to members who have not reached these levels. In the OT levels, Hubbard explains how to reverse the effects of past-life trauma patterns that supposedly extend millions of years into the past. Here is the story of Xenu (sometimes Xemu), an alien ruler of the “Galactic Confederacy.” According to this story, 75 million years ago Xenu brought billions of people to Earth in spacecraft resembling Douglas DC-8 airliners, put them around volcanoes and detonated hydrogen bombs in the volcanoes. The thetans then clustered together, stuck to the bodies of the living, and continue to do this today.
