What is Scientology about?

Developed by L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology is a religion that offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one's true spiritual nature and of one's relationship with self, family, groups, mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being, or infinity.

Scientology addresses the spirit -- not simply the body or mind -- and believes that man is far more than a product of his environment, or his genes.

Scientology comprises a body of knowledge which extends from certain fundamental truths. Prime among these are:

Scientology further holds man to be basically good, and that his spiritual salvation depends upon himself and his fellows and his attainment of brotherhood with the universe.

Scientology is not a dogmatic religion in which one is asked to believe anything on faith. An individual discovers for himself that Scientology works by applying its principles and observing or experiencing the results.

The ultimate goal of Scientology is true spiritual enlightenment and freedom for the individual.


And now for the truth

If you've bothered to read Scientology's latest official explanation of what it is they are, you might be left with the question, "Okay, but what is Scientology?" What you just read was a lot of vague, unspecific claims with the words "spirit" and "religion" thrown in from time to time. But Scientology's spokesperson some how managed to avoid answering the question -- with the hopes, I imagine, that you wouldn't notice.

The Scientology organization isn't a religion; it's organized crime patterned along the old Ponzi scam yet with the bunko trait commonly called "bait-and-switch" by law enforcement agencies. In such swindles the stated objectives the rubes try to purchase are never reached and the excuses the criminals offer for not delivering the promised goods always place the blame upon their victims.

Scientology sells the rubes the notion that they can become "clear" which would free them of physical problems, mental problems, and give them supernatural powers -- including levitation. The reasons why nobody has ever obtained these "OT powers" or "Operating Thetan" powers is explained to the rubes as their own fault. Followers who pay massive amounts of money to reach the "state of clear" find themselves without healing or other supernatural powers" and they're told that the reason is because they have invisible murdered space alien fragments on them called "Body Thetans" which keeps them from realizing their goals of becoming "clear."

I mention the Galactic Lord Xenu, Body Thetans, the Marcabian invasion fleet from outer space, and all the flying saucer nonsense which Scientology sells to their followers in a number of web pages on the Volunteer Ministers web site so I'll just briefly mention it again here.

In brief, the Galactic Ruler named Xenu had a population problem and he collected trillions of his citizens, froze them, transported them to Teegeeack (which is now called "Earth") and chained them to volcanoes which he promptly blew to pieces with fusion bombs.

It's these "Body Thetans" that attach themselves to humans which keep humans from "presently realizing" their "unlimited capabilities" mentioned by the organization above. The fact that humans are recollected by aliens from outer space when they die, get transported to "implant stations" (often on the planet Mars) where they're brainwashed and then brought back to Teegeeack where they seek human babies being born to take over is part of those "experiences which extends well beyond a single lifetime" the organization talks about.

As for the vague claims about "freeing" individuals, only the Scientology organization can remove these invisible murdered space alien fragments called "Body Thetans" -- for a price -- and as such, only Scientology can "free" individuals.

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance; vigilance against criminal scams like Scientology. If someone offers to sell you a "bridge to total freedom," call a cop.
