n his book Nothing Is Impossible, former Superman Christopher Reeve detailed his brief time as a Scientologist—and his less-than-impressed reaction to the religion. He was recruited, he says, outside a supermarket in 1975, and given a “free personality test.” Soon, Reeve found himself enrolling in expensive training courses and auditing sessions, during which, he said, a crudely made lie-detector machine was supposed to fact-check stories about his past life. Because he had “growing skepticism about Scientology,” Reeve wrote, he instead spun a fictional yarn based on a Greek myth—lies he said that went completely undetected by the machine. “The fact that I got away with a blatant fabrication completely devalued my belief in the process.”
