Is JMS a Scientologist?

just wondering. I've been reading up on Xenu and whatnot, and have run across references to a "Marcab Confederacy" and "Vorlon"

No idea. However, B5 does have lots of references to different authors and worlds, so it may just be a reference to Hubbard's fiction (which I haven't read).

JMS probably named the race after a real star whose planet the fictional race orbit.:

If he were, mere wondering about whether he might belong to such a honorless racket, would doubtless require him to challenge you with a pike (or if pikes aren't available, then at least a sizable trout).

Re: Is JMS a Scientologist?

i'd agree about them being generally repugnant, but i might get sued (shit licking litigious bastards).

Re: Is JMS a Scientologist?

In the very long line of religious Earth representatives seen in "The Parliament of Dreams", not one Scientologist was mentioned (at least before the fade).

I have reason to believe that JMS is a Vorlon and Doug Netter is a Shadow.

Re: Is JMS a Scientologist?

Why wouldn't JMS be the shadow? And Netter the Vorlon?
