    Everything is “media created”, sure, maybe, if it wasn’t for a feat of insanity called DIANETICS, written by supreme lord Hubbard himself; a rambling inane text full of double speak and language manipulation. Everything concerning “content” is nothing but common sense.

  • l0rd_fluffybunny says:

    Scientology was started by Ron Hubbard, the author of many science fiction novels.

    The fact that a church of Scientology exists boggles my mind. Too bad Isaac Asimov didn’t start the Temple of the Robot. Maybe Stephen King will start his own; The Doghouse of Cujo or the Dark Tower of the Crimson King.

    Meaning of the word ‘Scientology’
    Although today associated almost exclusively with Hubbard’s work, the word “Scientology” predates Hubbard’s creation by several decades. Philologist Allen Upward used the word “scientology” in his 1901 book The New Word as a synonym for “pseudoscience”, and this is sometimes cited as the first coining of the word. In 1934, the Argentine-German writer Anastasius Nordenholz published a book using the word positively: Scientologie, Wissenschaft von der Beschaffenheit und der Tauglichkeit des Wissens (“Scientology, Science of the Constitution and Usefulness of Knowledge”). Nordenholz’s book is a study of consciousness, and its usage of the word is not greatly different from Hubbard’s definition, “knowing how to know”. However, it is not clear to what extent Hubbard was aware of these earlier uses. The word itself is a pairing of the Latin word scientia (“knowledge”, “skill”), which comes from the verb scire (“to know”), and the Greek λογος lógos (“reason” or “inward thought” or “logic” or “an account of”).

    Scientology is a religion that is not really a religion. It is based on the writings of L. Ron Hubbard. I could start a huge debate, but the primary reason that Scientology is considered a religion (and I have several friends with the IRS that this totally ticks off) is for organizational tax exempt status. You don’t actually have to attend meetings to be a scientologist, just follow L. Ron Hubbard’s writings.

    Hope this helps…

    Sure. A Scientologist is someone who adheres to the faith of Scientology as revealed by its profit L. Ron Hubbard. Hubbard described a wild origin myth for human souls — it’s rather like a bad science fiction story (interesting, since he actually was a bad science fiction writer).

    Scientologists believe that if you’re failing at any part of your life, it’s because someONE is “repressing” you.

    They also violently disapprove of psychology and psychiatry (because it competes with their services).

    They also believe there are psychological barriers, called “engrams” that keep you from being “clear,” or, to have a happy, uncluttered and productive mind.

    Scientology means….ignorant people.

    i answered on a diff question you posted earlier but… seems you got one good reasonable answer here and many which fall under the “other” category. as for those who said it’s all a scam just to “tick off” the irs, i would totally agree! to the “tick off” part. Werner Erhard did the same thing with EST. he created a “church” by not becoming a church in the classic sense but rather a non-profit organization. in the first year he made over 160 thou/year salary..personally, and bought very nice homes in very exotic locales for his “schools” where he could conduct his “training” seminars. he also had nice cars, a corporate jet piloted by none other than John Denver’s father! the irs was surely fuming!! non-profits not only get free postage and a good price on fuel and utilities but, and more importantly, they do not pay taxes! he was taken to court over it (EST made so much money he couldn’t spend it!) and later decided it was more advantageous to simply pay the tax and keep the profits.. kind of normal(?) guess it was cheaper in the long run and he didn’t have to deal with all the red-tape. he (his EST) made well over a million bucks in only the 3rd year AFTER 100% of all expenses! all without a single word of advertisement in a single media venue what-so-ever!! everything is done via word-of-mouth. i think he hit on something! and to those who would say his is merely another scam wearing a different coat… i would ask, what if you came upon an idea that sold to millions of ppl who gladly paid for your ideas? AND your idea didn’t hurt anybody. would you give it all away? would you be so charitable? i think not.

    so.. what is a Scientologist? just another human making his/her way thru life in the only way they feel is best… for them!

    to each, his own.
