Official Cult List 2021 has Cults which range from extreme, toxic, militant Jihadist groups like ISIS to benign religions like Bahai Faith.

Both Cults & Isms are listed here.  Not every group mentioned on this site is considered a destructive, sinister, or dark cult. Some are ‘benign isms’ — different but not emotionally or socially destructive.

Definition of a CULT:
●  a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object.
●  a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister.
●  a misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing.
●  a person or thing that is popular or fashionable, especially among a particular section of society.
Michael Langone, ICSA’s Executive Director, defines a cult as “a group or movement exhibiting a great or excessive devotion or dedication to some person, idea, or thing, and employing unethically manipulative techniques of persuasion and control designed to advance the goals of the group’s leader, to the actual or possible detriment of members, their families, or the community”.

●  Saving 72 Virgins have simple criteria for cult evaluation, what is the bottom line results and outcomes of the cult no matter how lofty their ideals are: 
●  Example 1:  If the cult breaks up families and isolate them from friends and relatives then the cult is dangerous, even if it thinks strict celibacy (brahmacharya)  is good discipline for all its members. 
●  Example 2:  If the cult encourages its members to kill thousands of non-believers and apostates, or labels apostates as the worst humans on earth then it’s obvious the cult is major threat to humanity.
Example 3: If the cult advocates racism, extremism, religious fascism, heavy policing, mind control, then the cult is a destructive, dark cult.

Example 4: If the cult strike fears by predicting the end of the world, global destruction, and end times for the Earth and asking its followers to renounce the worldly desires and give their assets, money, property to the cult, then the cult is a Doomsday Cult.

●  Note:  Celebrities fan-cults are not listed here.

A Wake Up Call Introduction to Official Cult List
We had observed that in the last 50 years of Earth’s history how Cults have infiltrated, spreaded, and some deceiving dark cults listed are actively destroying the very fabric of modern society but the Cult Leaders and Followers are truly blind to their faith.

It is 100% likely that you or some of your friends and relatives are or were involved in some cult, or another. There are obviously various degrees of destructiveness and fanaticism in cults. No every group mentioned here is considered a dark cult.

Research, read more and decide for yourself – Knowledge is Power.

Cross-Cultural & International Cult Research by SSTV and ALC:
The Editors, Cult Expert Associates, and Investigative Journalists of both “SAVING 72 VIRGINS” [SSTV] Network and her sister organization “AFTERLIFE CHANNEL” [ALC] have many years of extensive knowledge and experience in Cult Research in The Top Cult List.

Therefore, we have every Human Right to:
1) Comment – Criticize – Counsel – Coach – Challenge – Confront any cult listed in SSTV Top Cult List.
2) Check & Balance the radical extremism power of cults.
3) Help Cult Members get the right, truthful, independent insights about their cult.
4) Assist Cult Members to escape especially Extreme Toxic Cults from their daily brainwashing and deceptive mind control.

Ground Rules
We are not interested in fiery rhetoric in videos or blogs, or long comments or counter-comments with commenters – we can have a Public Debate for this purpose.

Cult Followers, you too have every right to believe in WHOEVER you want to believe, to worship your guru, religious founder, or God.

A cult controls every aspect of their followers’ lives..png

Our only advice to Cult Fanatics is: “Blind faith may lead to ignorant bliss, but it also lead to bad choices, and letting your religious leaders control and police all your key life decisions.” ~ Whisperer Robert Chaen ~

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
~ François Voltaire ~

It’s Time for The Good Citizens of Earth to Wake Up, Stand Up, and Protect Mother Earth, its living beings, living things, and humans before we humans destroy Planet Earth.

Cults are like Cancer

Evidence-based Medicine & Health Cults:
Our ancestors lived in a pre-scientific world where the evolution of “logically illogical” thinking helped them survive.
Science doesn’t come naturally; we prefer stories to studies. How can we decide if a medical treatment works?
The scientific method is the only way to get reliable answers. Evidence-based medicine was a good idea but failed to live up to its promise.
How science-based medicine is different from evidence-based medicine and why it is better.
