    I'm just saying.

    Exactly. L. Ron Hubbard frequently remarked to friends how easy it was to dupe the government and get out of paying taxes. Just start a religion. LRH said several times that Scientology was a tax shelter.

    Hullo

    Iv,e taken a good look at scientology and its has so much more truth than islam and christianity.......and out of the three if you had to pick an ideaology, then scientology is by far the best.

    Why do I say this if Iam not a scientologist?....well scientology is really a subject in the workings of the mind, more akin to psychology and the study of human behavour.

    Scientology doesn,t pretend to know about Godhead, so it will never tell you that god said this....or god said that.

    Scientology is similar to religion, because it does deal with beliefs to a degree, so it is a religion to a degree.

    Ron Hubbard was a very intelligent man, and to see through mainsteam reigion (false religion) and come up with the writtings of scientology is a credit to him.

    Now you will see in this forum a lot of people who will jump on the band wagon to discredit Scientology, without even understanding one thing about it, or if they think they understand it, it will be from rumor and gossip. They have their dogma, and will not give credit to anything else.

    But could I ask you if you are a truth seeker, to explore Vedanta, because Vedanta will answer all your questions.

    I read his work "Dianetics" and you are correct in that it deals with "workings of the mind", yes, akin to psychology, and clearly "Dianetics" was to Hubbard as "Psychology of the Unconscious" or "Psychological Types" was to Carl Jung.

    A scientific work. Clearly not the basis for a "religion". Hubbard admitted creating Scientology as a tax shelter, nothing more.

    Let me ask you just how intensive and personal is *your* knowledge of Scientology?

    Well I looked at it, and gave credit to where it was due, but I am more interested in the meaning of life, and how life works, and what is God, and what happens when I die etc etc etc.

    There is a maxim which states that: " if you are spiritually well then you are automatically well physically, mentally and psychologically etc........so being forefilled spiritually made it unnecessary to persue scientology or other offerings.

    Now scientology didnt go as far enough into the spiritual, so i dismissed it and went elsewhere, and that search lead me to the knowledge found in Vedanta....but.....I did not just blindly accept Vedanta, but i researched and studied Vedanta, and practiced the ways for 30 years, and now I know that nothing else even comes close to the truth about life& God on this planet than Vedanta.

    I can tell you that L. Ron Hubbard had made his religion from the inspiration of his learning from the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy, as he had taken her classes in the 1800s and inquired much understanding of spirituality, though, decided to fall away from it's teachings. To which he created his own conceived religion based in a material view, as opposed to Christian Science's spiritual recognition of one's TRUE being..

    There is a book called "Science and Health" ( http://www.spirituality.com/dt/book_search.jhtml;jsessionid=FV4D5C1BES0FVKGL4LYCFEQ#jumpto ), that has healed many a thousand of people simply by reading it's revealing of one's true being..

    This book is the world's wake up call to reality. In fact, If I were the richest man on the planet and I was with you discussing this book. I would bring to your attention with a slight share of words how I would take all of my "value" that is considered wealth, the riches that I owned, and place them all in the Hotels of Waikiki.

    Remove all folk from the valley holding them, place armed detonators in each, then detonate them. Jump up on the rubble after the clearing, with the book in my hand and say "Here, this book is way richer.", then toss you the book!


    There are 100 pages in it's back of folk being healed of any ailment that was "INVENTED", just by reading this grand book, that IS the key to the scriptures, and was published over 100 yrs. ago.

    This is a testimony that can be found in the back of this book on page 607~

    CATARACT QUICKLY CURED

    I wish to add my testimony to those of others, and hope that it may be the means of bringing some poor sufferer to health, to happiness, and to God. I was healed through simply reading this wonderful book, Science and Health. I had been troubled periodically for many years with sore eyes, and had been to many doctors, who called the disease iritis and cataract. They told me that my eyes would always give me trouble, and that I would eventually lose my sight if I remained in an office, and advised me to go under an operation. Later on I had to wear glasses at my work, also out of doors as I could not bear the winds, and my eyes were gradually becoming worse. I could not read for longer than a few minutes at a time, otherwise they would smart severely. I had to rest my eyes each evening to enable me to use them the next day; in fact gas-light was getting unbearable because of the pain, and I made home miserable. A dear brother told me about Christian Science, and said that if I would read Science and Health it would help me. He procured for me the loan of the book. The first night I read it, it so interested me I quite forgot all about my eyes until my wife remarked that it was eleven o'clock. I found that I had been reading this book for nearly four hours, and I remarked immediately after, "I believe my eyes are cured," which was really the case. The next day, on looking at my eyes, my wife noticed that the cataract had disappeared. I put away my outdoor glasses, which I have not required since, and through the understanding gained by studying Christian Science I have been able to do away with my indoor glasses also, and have had no return of pain in my eyes since. This is now a year and a half ago.--G. F. S., Liverpool, England.
