Blaintology, also called the "Church of Blaintology", is a massive magic cult founded and led by the famed magician David Blaine and an antagonistic faction in the episode "Super Best Friends" of South Park.
Practitioners of this religiously-crooked, phony religion called Blaintologists, who were also called "Blainiacs", followed David Blaine and his teachings. Followers had to have a shaved head, whether they were male or female; this confused a few characters as they could not tell who was who, Stan even questions who he is at one point, and has to put his poofball hat back on. Blaintologists were multicultural and any religion was welcome, even if you were already Jewish (like Kyle) or any other religion (most Blaintologists were Roman Catholics while some are Buddhists).
A book written by David Blaine about his "miracles" entitled "David Blaine: Teachings", was used as a sort of holy bible in his so-called "religion".
Blaine tries to gain tax exempt status for his religion, unfortunately for him, the request is denied and so he persuades his followers to commit a mass suicide here in Washington D.C. with many cult members from all over the United States to protest and force approval of the tax exemptment title; but the Super Best Friends (Jesus, Buddha, Moses, Muhammad, Seaman, Joseph Smith, Krishna and Lao Tse) managed to convert his followers back to their original beliefs and their normal lives by causing him to flee after their battle with his bewitched statue of President Abraham Lincoln (ended with him being shot dead by the animated statue of John Wilkes Booth), which therefore destroyed their faith in him as he abandoned them.
- Blaintology shares a few references, allusions and similarities to the real-life alternative religious movement Scientology and their videogame counterpart Unitology from the Dead Space series.
- Blaintology also shares some similarities with the Cult of Nix from the Clive Barker horror movie Lord of Illusions who both practice magic and followed the teachings of a false prophet.
- Interestingly, their compound called the "Center for Magic" which is built and located outside of Denver, Colorado, is a parody of the Mount Carmel Center outside of Waco, Texas.
