Yes, world domination and eternal adoration can be yours!
"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 If you've ever felt the need to sacrifice on an altar beneath a blood-red moon, or just make Friday a holy day (three-day weekend, anyone?), this is the only sacred creed you need.
Live long and prosper.
