Scientology BASICS

October 2, 2007

The materials of Dianetics and Scientology comprise the largest body of information ever assembled on the mind, spirit and life, rigorously refined and codified by L. Ron Hubbard through five decades of research, investigation and development. The results of that work are contained in hundreds of books and more than 3,000 recorded lectures.

This is the path to knowing how to know, unlocking the gates to your future eternity. Follow it.

The Story of the International Association of Scientologists (IAS)

Without fireworks, without cheering crowds, but with pure unadulterated dedication, a small group of Scientologists determined to see to the security and dissemination of the Scientology religion formed the International Association of Scientologists (IAS).

Click here for a definition of the Scientology symbol.All new movements have at one time been faced with persecution and misunderstanding, and all great movements have succeeded because of the personal conviction and dedication of their members.

Regrettably, history has seen many attempts to suppress religious freedom and human rights. From the persecution of early Christians in Rome to the slaughter of Jews in Nazi concentration camps, many faiths have suffered dearly.

Because of just such a lamentable history, the International Association of Scientologists was formed to guarantee that the Scientology religion can be practiced for all time — through a strong group composed of those who believe in and are willing to fight for the rights of man and the freedom of all religions.

Why is Scientology a Religion?The IAS was formed at Saint Hill Manor in East Grinstead, Sussex, England, in 1984 when delegates from around the world gathered in recognition of the need to unite all Scientologists as one international body.

In addition to adopting a constitution and electing a board, the first IAS delegates also formulated and signed the Pledge to Mankind, rededicating themselves to achieving the aims of Scientology.

Catalyzed by this profound statement of purpose, Scientologists from around the world enthusiastically embraced the IAS.

Since that time membership has grown dramatically. Although there remain countries where religious intolerance must still be dealt with, the Association’s primary focus today is the dissemination and expansion of Scientology, bringing its technology into use to help others, and better the civilization as a whole.

Religious Technology Center Logo - Scientology & Dianetics SymbolsReligious Technology Center (RTC) is a non-profit organization formed in 1982 to preserve, maintain and protect the Scientology religion.

Religious Technology Center holds the ultimate ecclesiastical authority regarding the standard and pure application of L. Ron Hubbard’s religious technologies. RTC is not part of the management structure of the Church and is not involved in its day-to-day affairs.

It holds the Dianetics and Scientology trademarks and service marks, which Founder L. Ron Hubbard donated to RTC in 1982. Earlier, Mr. Hubbard himself oversaw the practice of the religion and registered as trade and service marks many of the religion’s identifying words and symbols, such as “Dianetics” and “Scientology.”

These registered marks provided a legal mechanism for seeing the Scientology religious technologies are standardly ministered in exact accordance with the scriptures and not altered by misappropriation or improper use. They also provide a legal mechanism to prevent anyone from offering some altered or inauthentic version of Dianetics and Scientology and representing it as the real technology.

RTC grants the Church of Scientology International (CSI), the mother church of the Scientology religion, the right to use the trademarks and to license their use to all other Scientology churches.

While CSI serves as the mother church and is responsible for the overall ecclesiastical management, dissemination, propagation and defense of the Scientology religion and the various Scientology churches, Religious Technology Center serves as the ultimate protector of the religion. While each Scientology organization and, indeed, every Scientologist is expected to enforce the standard application of scriptures, RTC is the final arbiter of orthodoxy.


L. Ron Hubbard Site

“I have lived no cloistered life and hold in contempt the wise man who has not lived and the scholar who will not share. There have been many wiser men than I, but few have traveled as much road. I have seen life from the top down and the bottom up. I know how it looks both ways. And I know there is wisdom and that there is hope. ”

L. Ron Hubbard

There are only two tests of a life well lived L. Ron Hubbard once remarked: Did one do as one intended? And were people glad one lived? In testament to the first stands the full body of his life’s work, including the more than 5,000 writings and 3,000 tape-recorded lectures of Dianetics and Scientology. In evidence of the second are the tens of millions of individuals whose lives have been demonstrably bettered because he lived. They are the more than 3 million children now reading because of L. Ron Hubbard’s educational discoveries; they are the millions of men and women freed from substance abuse through L. Ron Hubbard’s breakthroughs in drug rehabilitation; they are the more than 50 million who have been touched by his nonreligious moral code; and they are the many millions more who hold his work to be the spiritual cornerstone of their lives.

Although best known for Dianetics and Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard cannot be so simply categorized. If nothing else, his life was too varied, his influence too broad. There are Bantu tribesmen in southern Africa, for example, who know nothing of Dianetics and Scientology, but they know L. Ron Hubbard the educator. Likewise, there are factory workers in Albania who know him only for his administrative discoveries; children in China who know him only as the author of their moral code, and readers in a dozen languages who know him only for his novels. So, no, L. Ron Hubbard is not an easy man to categorize and certainly does not fit popular misconceptions of “religious founder” as an aloof and contemplative figure. Yet the more one comes to know this man and his achievements, the more one comes to realize he was precisely the sort of person to have brought us Scientology – the only major religion to have been founded in the twentieth century.

What is Scientology?

February 10, 2007

ScientologyThe experiences of millions over the course of several decades show Dianetics and Scientology to be the most effective and practical path to spiritual improvement of any religion this world has seen. The point cannot be stressed enough: Answers have been found to the problems of life. They exist in Scientology and people discover this fact for themselves every day.

At a time where many unworkable “solutions” are offered, disappointment can blind people to something which really does work. The effective results of Dianetics and Scientology, then, warrant some comment. The next chapter has been written by individual Scientologists for their statements are the best testament to its workability. (Find out for yourself >)


The Scientology Handbook

February 5, 2007

This site gives workable answers to problems people face in their everyday lives.

“Scientology recognizes that man is not just so many vials of chemicals fortuitously combined into a remarkable stimulus-response machine. Scientology views man as a spiritual being with native capabilities which can be improved far beyond what is generally believed possible. In fact, it has been demonstrated that man deteriorates to the degree that he denies his spiritual nature and ceases to live with moral values, such as trust, honesty, integrity and other sometimes intangible characteristics.”

The last decade has been one of the most turbulent in our history. Opposing ideologies, violent revolutions and a frail socioeconomic structure have subjected more than one-third of the world’s population to oppression, poverty and brutal human rights violations. Terrorism rips at the very fabric of society, propagating a mindset governed by hysteria, fear and anxiety. (visit the site >)

Disaster Response:Scientology Volunteer Ministers - A Global Force

Within minutes of the World Trade Center disaster, Volunteer Ministers were on site, providing support around the clock to emergency personnel. They continued to arrive from all over the United States and from distant countries, until, all told, there were 800 “yellow shirts” working 24/7 alongside New York emergency rescue teams, providing real help. And when it was over, those 800 Volunteer Ministers earned praise from officials and civic leaders and were awarded the New York Fire Department’s Medal of Valor. (learn more >)
