Transcript of Scientology
Created by Lafayette Ronald Hubbard (most commonly known as L. Ron Hubbard)
Founded in 1954 - fairly modern Unfortunately, there are no public statistics about Scientology - All statistics about Scientology have been marked "confidential" (but we still have estimates) Scientology is not an established religion - not asked to "accept anything as belief or on faith" (Official Church of Scientology)
Scientology is ultimately understood by application by the person - you believe in what you want by using it in everyday life
Why else? L. Ron Hubbard's past life "Scientology is a religion that offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one's true spiritual nature and one's relationship to self, family, groups, mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being" ("Official Church of Scientology") Scientologists believe that contained in everyone, there is a thetan Thetans can be compared to souls
They have been around since the beginning of time
They are contained in human bodies lifetime to lifetime (similar to reincarnation - called rebirth)
They yearn to be free of the body and to live freely To free one's thetan, Scientologists use a process called Dianetics (http://www.about-scientology.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/profile-LRH.jpg), 09 Feb. 2013. There are about 8 million passive followers and 50,000 active members They mostly live in America (the founder's home country) and Australia where Scientology has prospered Scientologists do not have a specific look or style, they look like any other person! <http://www.comicvine.com/forums/gen-discussion/1/tom-cruise-is-my-batman/646063/> 16 Feb. 2013 Tom Cruise, a very public Scientologist (http://bigginsblog.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/cruisescieno.jpg), 09 Feb. 2013. L. Ron Hubbard, the creator of Scientology <http://www.narconon.org/about-narconon/l-ron-hubbard.html>, 17 Feb. 2013. John Travolta, another famous Scientologist <http://www.aceshowbiz.com/events/John%20Travolta/john-travolta-photocall-savages-06.html>, 17 Feb. 2013. A random Scientologist <http://bucketofacid.grou.ps/talks/4098337>, 17 Feb. 2013. Cyrus Brooks, the vice president for the Australian Church of Scientology <http://www.smh.com.au/news/national/scientologists-flat-earthers/2007/07/10/1183833476294.html>, 17 Feb. 2013. <http://www.xenutv.com/blog/2010/02/22/scientologys-secrets/>, 17 Feb. 2013. Another Random Scientologist Session schedule:
1- E-Meter Session schedule:
1- Mr. Johnson is hooked up to the E-Meter.
( designed to identify emotionally charged words)
2-Mr. Johnson is questioned by the auditor, who acts as a guide to the session.
3- This is continued for as many sessions as needed.
4- Once his mind has been tranformed from "preclear" to "clear," he has moved on to be an auditor. Now he can help other people through auditing sessions http://www.thesundrychronicles.com/sarkozy-saves-scientology.html, 2-21-13 S- Scientology Top triangle-knowledge, responsibility, and control Lower triangle- affinity, reality, and communication The triangle symbol is designed so that both corners are facing the same direction at all times. When one communicates and agrees with someone else, affinity is risen, and vice versa. This symbol provides a solid ethical path for those who want to succeed in life. By following this symbol's teachings, one can "increase understanding and improve relationships with anyone ORIENTATION There is no dogma about God - therefore who God is depends on the persons manifestation of God Auditing is somewhat like therapy for some people Scientologists work a lot with charity and helping the humanity of others So how is Scientology any different? How does it compare to other religions? Mankind Path God Similarly to Chirstianity, there is a God, but in Scientology, there is no dogma about God
Similarly to Buddhism, when you become aware that you're a thetan, you join with God - In Scientology, called infinity <http://barbaraschwarz.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/scientology-is-an-applied-philosophy-and-a-religion-in-the-truest-sense-it-does-not-need-to-copy-or-look-like-christian-churches/>, 22 Feb. 2013 In contrast to Christianity, Scientologist believe that man was originally good, but because of being man, sins were committed
Also, they believe that charity and welfare will help one become their thetan Reincarnation http://s404.beta.photobucket.com/user/addiefleur/media/Mourning/tombstone-clipart-1.gif.html, 22, Feb. 2013 Similarly to Buddhism, Scientologists believe in reincarnation - the thetans lives through different bodies until it can free itself http://bestclipartblog.com/26-baby-clip-art.html/baby-clip-art-9, 22 Feb. 2013 However, Scientologists don't believe in karma or darma Also similar to Buddhism, the path to Enlightenment/God/Infinity is the Eight Dynamics To Infinity Self, Creativity, Group Survival, Species, Life Forms, Physical Universe, Spiritual Dynamic, Infinity http://sisterawest.blogspot.com/2012/08/come-follow-me.html, 23 Feb. 2013 L Ron Hubbard's life- http://www.scientology.org/faq/scientology-founder/who-was-lronhubbard.html - reading and writing early

Knowing also that people in the East were not able to reach as deeply and predictably into the riddles of the mind, as I had been led to expect, I knew I would have to do a lot of research.” -L.

L. Ron Hubbard is convinced children must be treated as adults, because he was treated as one during his childhood. Scientology kids treated like adults: "At the earliest age possible, children are drilled by Scientology" "A Thetan can do anything." "A child is a man or a woman who has not yet attained full growth." - L. Ron Hubbard Children scientology-
