The night Elvis was born, his parents, Vernon and Gladys Presley, and his family doctor, Robert Hunt, all claim that they saw a strange glowing light ‘beaming’ over the Presley family home (Biography) (Corbett) (History). His father specifically mentioned seeing a bright blue unidentified flying object (UFO) hovering above the house at around two a.m. January eighth, 1935, as he went out for a cigarette break the night Elvis was being delivered (Allen) (Gale) (Hanks). Vernon Presley later told Elvis and Larry Geller that the moment he saw that light he “knew right then and there that something special was happening” (Allen).

Manson knew how to manipulate a person and drive people to do the most unimaginable things. Manson was an extremely tortured person and a frequent user of LSD, as was the whole family (Roberts 30).
Beginning in the mind of a troubled and delusional science fiction author, Scientology has grown to become one of the most controversial body of beliefs since the dawn of its creation in 1960. The Church of Scientology uses marketing technics to lure men and women into its cult-like sector and, while doing so, ruins the lives of everyone in its wake. Although the Church of Scientology claims to help the human condition by ridding the minds of its followers of terrible past life experiences so that they may reach their untapped potential, the Church of Scientology is a profit-making cult driven by greed, power, and gaining a worldwide following and ultimately ruins the lives of its followers. Science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard created Scientology
Feys states,” Conformity can be seen as the world’s most common, but dangerous psychological disorder.” It is quite self explanatory, but if you do not understand, Feys is basically saying that conformation is extremely common. Also, in some cases people may conform to much in a potentially dangerous situation, and could hurt themselves or someone else. Take the Jim Jones Cult for example. Jim Jones was the leader of the Peoples Temple in the 1970’s. The cult is best known for the mass murder-suicide.

On November 18, 1978, in “Jones town” more than 900 members of an American cult Peoples Temple died in a mass suicide-murder under the direction of their leader Jim Jones. The megalomaniac leader, Jim Jones, was born on May 31, 1931, in rural Indiana.

He wanted to do a church of his own, and to collect money for it he tried various ways, including selling live monkeys door-to-door.
