  • LOL! Something along the lines of aliens invading our bodies and that's why we get sick and have negative thoughts. They go thru sessions to rid the body of these forces.

  • We spent a great deal of time on Scientology in my World Religions class when I was in college. Most of us just couldn't wrap our heads around how intelligent, balanced people could sincerely follow the "doctrine" but whatever. It really is quite extensive and unconventional for sure. I guess we just aren't enlightened enough or something. LOL!

  • My father was interested in it. Apparently there is some psychotherapy-like stuff in the beginning, that can draw you in to think that you will learn how to be a better and more balanced person.

    He got out when they started asking for money.

  • It was founded by L. Ron Hubbard in 1954. Rejects the biblical description of God. Everyone is a "thetan", an immortal spirit with unlimited powers over its own universe. No sin or need to repent. Salvation is freedom from reincarnation. One must work with an "auditor" on his "engrams" (negative experience units) to achieve the state of "clear".
