Scientology isn't an easy subject to discuss on bulletin boards.
It takes some effort to understand the subject
and the way it has developed. It is generally only by
applying the principles that someone will be able to get a sense of its
real worth. By taking information from internet sources a person can get
overwhelmed with unevaluated material, falsehoods and outdated information.
Some aspects of the subject are far better studied in sequence. On
the internet there are individuals who take delight in prematurely revealing
the advanced materials (which they often mix in with invented horrors). Now since the
advanced levels are spiritual in nature, they are outside the
realm of normal living. Even the straight information - and the level of certainty with which
it's presented in Scientology -
sounds strange to a reader who isn't familiar with the research path that it stems from.
Scientology is best described as a spiritual philosophy. Used effectively
it can remedy some of the problems that beset man (such as poor
educational standards, penal abuses, and drug addiction). It is tied together with an organization, the Church of Scientology. They train
and help people, correct things when necessary, and promote the subject
The Church is just now coming out of its difficult
pioneer phase, and during this time it has had to operate under various kinds
of stress. The many benefits that it can offer are not well
understood by most people.
In these pages I'll explore some of the reasons for this and I'll address
some of the common criticisms that I have encountered during my twenty years
as a Scientologist.
