I first became aware of the First Church of Dana Scully, Scientist through their Facebook group page (click the above image for more details). I just in hopes to experience the joy and wonder of "Cosmic Despair, Shredded Sanity, and Redheads", all of which were some of my favorite things to experience. I was not disappointed.
I do recall feeling somewhat overwhelmed and a little out of my element. "The X-Files" wasn't on my top ten list of favorite television shows. I enjoyed it for a time, but I'm was and always have been more of a cartoon and b-movie guy. Still, I had to admit there was something powerfully inspiring about the show and its presence in popular culture. Being a child growing up in the 1990's it was a visceral experience just listening to the opening melody of the show; a tune that still gives me the heebie-jeebies to this day.
The first volume of the written Church material is called "The Book of Scullyation", which goes over the apparent history of the creation of the Church, its function, and the overall basic philosophies of the thesis that Church members are expected to absorb. The second volume, "The Handbook for the Recently Deranged" contains what I believe to be writings from a different time or dimension in life of the most esteemed Reverend Saint J.R. "Jeff" Sommer, Pontifex Maximus of the First Church of Dana Scully, Scientist. These writings focus a great deal more on the "Cosmic Despair" and "Shredded Sanity" of the Church as he speaks of horrible terrors and interdimensional deities from the mind of H.P. Lovecraft.
It's also important to understand the links between this fringe Clench/schism and the Church of the SubGenius, but I would rather not go into too much detail. Needless to say, the connection is there, and "Bob" is always present, if even in the shadows of your thoughts.
To understand and enjoy this Church and all that it offers, you must observe the lessons within these two booklets. If you are interested in learning more about the Church, and reading these sacred scriptures, click the picture below for ordering details.
I really do highly recommend purchasing these booklets and joining the Facebook group. If anything I've said so far sounds weird and interesting to you, then you're already on the proper sojourn. Don't miss this chance to expand your consciousness because "the truth is out there".
