Cambridge, ENG Scholars as well as religious apologists are intensely watching the cult of Scamatology, which has been getting a flurry of attention in the media.
"Many people can't help but notice that the cult is shrinking, even as it soaks his last remaining members for money to transform large buildings into Cult Castles. Then, after they dedicate the big building with a lot of people bused in and a lot of hoopla, then the building starts to look abandoned, and no one comes near it except every once in a while," said a media representative, walking by an ornate, but totally empty, Cult Castle. The building also boasted a large modern, and completely empty parking lot.
Most of the scholars agreed that the cult leader, Davey Makemerich, who took over for the cult's founder, L. Roach Cubbard, is appropriating the funds as soon as he can pluck it from an unwary money whale. Celebrities are used to "fleece the sheep" and the cult has it down to a pseudo-science under its present leader.
"I have to think that no one could ever replace the perfect storm that is Makemerich. He has all the major qualities of various different cult leaders, all molded into one totally insidious human being. Avarice, Uncontrollable Rage, and Pure, Unadulterated Evil!" spoke an incredulous media hound.
"They thought no one could replace Hitler for total evil! This guy is like a combination Hitler, Bernie Madoff, Pancho Villa, Jago the Evil Dwarf and the Man With the Tiny Hands!" spoke another.
"Well, I think what will happen when Makemerich is gone, they will all yawn, rub their eyes, wake up, think for a second, and then they will all start laughing to think that they actually believed all the Scamomyths!" said a learned scholar.
"Well, they will take the good parts and build something bigger, better, and stronger!" said the cult apologist.
"That would be great if it HAD any good parts!!" spoke the learned scholar.
"I think it will end up in the hands of a doddering miser who won't let the cult get rid of any properties, until they all crumble and fall apart." spoke a psychic.
And so the discussions went on into the night. The consensus agreement-he can't last much longer without getting arrested, and no one's going to muss him!
