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

Read the latest Official Cult List 2022:

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, weird, 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”.

Readers are welcome to submit the full name of the Cult, and the Cult Founder, and most importantly must be supported by solid evidence, credible articles, and if possible victim testimonials. After due diligence, the cult and the cult founder may be listed in the latest Official Cult List.

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 Robren

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.

Other Cult Alert
As it’s not possible to list every latest small splinter cult group, if after you have done your due diligence and think that we should include some Cult groups, write your comments below, with article links.

The owners and the writers featured in this website and other social media/website links are NOT responsible for any good or bad actions by individuals or groups resulting from reading these articles, videos, quotes, and all media.

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.

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.

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
