"The way to make a million dollars is to start a religion."
Attributed to L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology
Wouldn't you like to control countless worshippers with a single word? To call forth bountiful offerings of gold and silver? Wouldn't you love to make your acolytes bow in awe of your greatness?
Starting a new religion can be fun and profitable. You'll laugh along with Philip Athans (founder, leader, and sole member of the Church of Phil), as he shows you how to:
- Gather the flock and keep 'em coming back for more
- Organize mysterious and complex rituals
- Interrogate (or just ridicule) the hell out of nonbelievers
- Recruit celebrity spokespeople, from Tom Cruise to Uma Thurman
Live long and prosper.
