Nothing new under the sun

Ever wanted to unlock your hidden potential? Ever want to use the powers of the universe to give fate a little nudge in your direction? Well, in 1928, Frank B. Robinson found out how to do it, and decided to share it with the world.

He founded Psychiana, Inc., a mail-order religion based right here in Moscow, Idaho. It consisted of a series of lessons in how to interact with God, and anyone, yes, anyone could become super-powerful and do such mysterious things as healing pig wounds. And unlike many religious hucksters, Robinson offered a money-back guarantee.

Today, the building that was built as Psychiana's world headquarters serves as Moscow City Hall.
