SCIENTOLOGY.. CULT OR RELIGION YOU DECIDE
After reading many articles throughout the press on Scientology I
decided that curiosity had finally grabbed ahold of me and I needed
to find out further information.
Unlike most common religions Scientology is still a rather new
concept of belief systems that has only been around for the past
Created by L. Ron Hubbard in 1952 as a successor to his previous
self help system Dianetics. Scientology builds on a set of beliefs
and conducts in which if you lead your life in this manner you will
reach a god like state and complete happiness within yourself.
Therefore passing over the bridge of total freedom.
Reaching this goal is done through the forms of Auditing. A
counseling type process that reprograms the natural thought
processes and enable you to free yourself from past life events
that have caused some form of mental scar preventing you from
achieving fulfillment and happiness within.
Now all this sounds rather tempting who wouldn't want to feel
complete contentment within there life.
The is also a Darker side to Scientology the one that no one seams
to want anyone to find out and it was this side of Scientology that
I found not only intriguing but also extremely disturbing to read.
The stories contained within the forums that spanned the internet
in support of people leaving scientology was some of the most
shocking I have ever had the displeasure of reading.
Not only are there strong allegations of sexual abuse within the
Church of Scientology but also the amount of control that the
church has over its member was overwhelming. Upon reading through
hours and hours of past experiences of members who have left the
religion it has placed many questions in my mind.
The one thing that came up time and time again was how once you
have joined the church you where committed to disassociation from
anyone that did not have any involvement
With the practices of the churches and there strict policies. On
occasion I have also read of even the church having influences on
relationships formed by its members.
With further things coming to light I find myself a little scared
to dig any deeper into what seams to be a very controlled society
With the likes of top celebrities supporting Scientology it is a
way of life that is slowly growing stronger and gaining more
appeal. Especially within the United States where most of the
supporters for Scientology seam to reside.
So the question I ask myself is Scientology really a religion or
just another cult that brainwashes each member into a way of
rituals that drive people into a state of hypnosis. This then
enable the so called auditors/councilors to implant a train of
thought that somehow pries on the individuals weaknesses and flaws
and uses the information gathered as a weapon of self distruction.
Therefore always controlling the thought process of the individuals
who are participated in the clearing.
The more I choose to dig into the workings of Scientology I find
that there are so many flaws like many religions that exist today.
The fact that Scientology was created by a Science fiction writer
leaves me wondering if Scientology is more a work of fiction
embraced with hypnosis and phycology. As like most religions there
is always an element of fiction involved but Scientology seams to
take this the one step further. Creating a closed community that
has become secretive in there actions.
Unlike most religions Scientology has many secrets it likes to keep
hidden and it is these secrets alone that I would like to expose or
at least bring to the publics attention.
So as I gather my findings I will leave you with the ultimate
Is Scientology really a religion or a crazy cult that exists within
Once I have gathered more information I will submit in another post
that's is the powers that be don't force me to keep my silence.
