why did it have to be L. Ron? He’s a schlocky writer and most of stuff he made up and managed to convince people to believe in is pretty corny. So let’s hear your votes for which Sci-fi writer should have been the one to create a religion that half of Hollywood believes in.
I’ll go first. I’m torn between Frank Herbert’s Dune stuff and the religion Octavia Butler made up in her “Parable” series. Either of which make more sense than Elronism, are more interesting, and I could even make a case for at least the Parable religion being a more noble and belief-worthy dogma.
Mods: I wasn’t sure whether to put this in Cafe Society or IMHO. Feel free to move if you think it’s necessary.
