Take Scientology adverts off of TV

I was shocked when I saw an advert for Scientology on ITV; not only does it describe scientology as 'science and religion connecting' with no scientific evidence supporting the affirmations of Scientology, but it claims 'everything you've ever imagined is possible' as if it is fact, surely this is false advertising?

It would be comical if it's implications weren't so potentially harmful. I hope most intelligent people that watch this advert will dismiss it as ludicrous, but I personally don't think faith based adverts should be aired at all, using advertising techniques utilised by marketing aimed at consumers, to essentially persuade the audience, which includes young and impressionable minds.

 

Sign this petition to tell the ASA (Advertsing Standards Agency) to take this advert off the air.
