Scientology Symbol
 Scientology A true Religion


As religion is a universal impulse, as the ecumenists maintain, one should not forget that Catholicism itself had to go through a long stage of formation and a continuous history of crisis and reforms until it adopted its “final form” which we know today. Islam, Judaism and Buddhism passed through similar stages and through a much larger duration than the few years the Church of Scientology has had to organize itself in a completely organized form and aspect.

The clear confrontation of Scientology with the “scientific” doctrines of psychology and psychiatry which deny the goodness of man, as affirmed by Scientology, frees this religion even more from any confusion. Scientology only values the spiritual essence of man, his innate goodness, his immortality and his search for infinity as a final goal. The novelty here is that its founder developed the religion of Scientology as a body of knowledge and practices which direct man towards these goals. To confuse this with an attempt at “therapy” or “healing” is easily imputed to the superficiality of poorly documented opinions.
