How did Scientology or Christian Science become religions?

Scientology came from a writer of science-fiction.
However, what quality of anime would cause it to result in a religion?

There's all sorts of religions centered around computers today. A religion is a formed group of people who speak similar language around a false god they build.

I'm sorry, but the question simply doesn't make sense.

That's what this topic is about. If science fiction writers can do it based on a book, can the same be done with anime or manga?

It could be done by any work of fiction, by this logic. After all, the philosophy of Objectivism resulted from Ayn Rand, right?

With my being most overly wonderful and then some with a very valuable and deep thought inspired opinion:

I say YES, IF it was based on Japanese Anime with a Japanese India religious hint.
Monks that eat worms and drink rice wine.
Life is what YOU make it,
Most just try and fake it...

Well we already have Jedi-ism. So it doesn't seem a far stretch to get one from anime too.

All things are possible to those with creative minds and the ability to make their dreams come true.
