What is Scientology?

Enturbulation.org wrote:Scientology is the creation of science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard. Hubbard’s departure from the world of science fiction and entrance to spiritual subjects began with his work on Dianetics, originally published in 1950. Hubbard began work on Scientology in 1952, founding the first church in 1953, and continued until his death in 1986. Scientology was seen as the next logical step after Dianetics and began to build a structure around these ideas. Originally described as a “study of knowledge,” by 1960 Hubbard described Scientology as “a religion by its basic tenets, practice, historical background and by the definition of the word ‘religion’ itself.”

Today, Scientology is recognized as a religion in only a few countries, most notably the United States, Australia, and Canada. Many other countries have Scientology offices and missions, but are still not recognized as anything more than a charitable or non-profit organization. Other countries have alleged that Scientology is a dangerous cult, and, on December 7th, 2007, interior ministers in Germany declared Scientology to be unconstitutional and began seeking a ban, the first such action against Scientology since its founding. Despite this, the church claims approximately eight to fifteen million members worldwide and states that it is the fastest growing religion in the world. Enturbulation.org

There are groups and organizations working to bring to light the nasty underbelly of Scientology.

Operation Clambake wrote:The Church of Scientology is a vicious and dangerous cult that masquerades as a religion. Its purpose is to make money. It practices a variety of mind-control techniques on people lured into its midst to gain control over their money and their lives. Its aim is to take from them every penny that they have and can ever borrow and to also enslave them to further its wicked ends.

It was started in the 1950s by a science fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard in fulfilment to his declared aim to start a religion to make money. It is an offshoot to a method of psychotherapy he concocted from various sources which he named "Dianetics". Dianetics is a form of regression therapy. It was then further expanded to appear more like a religion in order to enjoy tax benefits. He called it "Scientology".

Scientology is a confused concoction of crackpot, dangerously applied psychotherapy, oversimplified, idiotic and inapplicable rules and ideas and science-fiction drivel that is presented to its members (at the "advanced" levels) as profound spiritual truth. Operation Clambake

Many of todays celebrities are members of the Church of Scientology.

The Church of Scifiology is the funniest pile of rat feces I have ever heard of. Seriously.
L. Ron Hubbard = funny man.
Before I severely offend anyone I will post a song that should help.

hahaha well its always great to have a humorous point of view. You can't do anything but laugh really. I have a church of Scientology center about a block from my house. It's a house with a sign. No ones ever there. Or at least it doesn't look like they are. It will be interesting to see how scientology pans out over the next 10 - 15 years.

Great Videos!!

Well scientologists don't consider themselves religious, and yet they belong to the "Church of Scientology". Scientology has broken people, and hurt them in many ways. but they aren't a religion. They believe they have a better understanding of themselves and those around them by following the guidelines put forth by their all encompassing leader. hmmm Sounds like a Religion to me. Matter of fact it sounds like most if not all religions. I think Scientology is going to fail. Not anytime soon though... there's more money to be made.
