 Scientology A true Religion


PHILOSOPHICAL AND DOCTRINAL ASPECT

Scientology is based on the works of L. Ron Hubbard. Scientologists recognize the works and investigations of its creator; philosopher and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard as the sole source of the Scriptures of the religion.

Starting with Dianetics (see Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, 1950) the evolution of Scientology offers enormous similarities to the majority of religions, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Buddhism. Its history is one of discovery or systematic “revelation” of the basic “philosophic truths” which progress step by step and lead to the construction of a complete doctrinal body.

With Dianetics its founder seeks to relieve man of the sufferings the mind produces in the body and the life of men.
