Religion- a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
(Dictionary.com)

Like Catholicism and Judiasm, Scientology is a type of religion. It is a belief in the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe. Therefore, while I do not believe that the religion's beliefs are true, it is a belief that some people think is true.

Was my strategy of using definitions to support my side good? I hope to use this for future debates.

@kasmic, according to the Vi Principle, nothing is real. You have to believe (be lie) that you are seeing everything. Since beliefs are false (be lie), than nothing exists, even God, as according to this principle, God is false to to you having to believe in Him. So there are 2 possible conclusions: either everything is false, and is thusly God, or nothing exists, and Spex is the only one to know this, as he has no beliefs (be lie). That means he is the only true objective thinker on this site.
