    Thanks for asking an intelligent question, which is unusual for this group.
    Whelp, here we go again... And who may I ask are you, great one? Seems those who know the most are those who come down on others the most often.

    one of the main principles of scientology is that, when it's questioned or doubted, its adherents are supposed to attack the skeptic, his credibility and his intelligence. very little in done to rebut the actual criticisms, aside from dismissing them as lies and repeating completely unsupported claims about the cult, such as that it has cured addiction and "helped" thousands of people. "mourgos" here is practically reading from a script.

    yea, do read those links, and then read these as well.

    This is from Wikipedia, and is quite objective:

    Also have a look at these:

    Any "religion" that asks you to sign a release form is one you should research carefully.

    I might be jumping the gun on this one but it goes:

    "In Scientology doctrine, Xenu is a galactic ruler who, 75 million years ago, brought billions of people to Earth, stacked them around volcanoes, and blew them up with hydrogen bombs."

    As sadistic and as ludicrous as this sounds, I found it to be quite amusing.

    Hi,

    Yeah, you're right, sorry about the insults. Just that the narrowmindedness gets to me sometimes. I do not know what this Xenu thing is or what a galactic over-whatzit is either. These are not in Hubbard's writings, but are made up to confuse people. Scientology is about communication, about making able people more able in their lives. If you want specifics I can list my gains here for a second, such as a stage fright that is no longer there; I no longer get constantly sick (still the occasional colds though -- working on that one). I was referring to Narconon earlier as a drug rehab facility. They have been checked by state officials in Oklahoma and found to have a much higher rate of success than other treatment programs. It's not 100% but better than a lot out there. As you noticed though, some of the responses have also been less than understanding or open-minded. A lot of misinformation has spread about this subject and I will not defend it. I will say though that you seem intelligent and want to know more. If I were checking out a subject I knew little about, I would visit my local library, take out a few books, and find out for myself. I will not be posting on this site anymore. Good luck to you friend. - JM

    Nice fiction. No such thing.

    Again, science fiction. Nothing to do with what Scientology principals are.

    These sites do not give the true information. The true data are in the books and lectures of Hubbard. Are you a psychiatrist or believe in their value system?
