“Scientology does not teach you. It only reminds you. For the information was yours in the first place.”
L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought

L. Ron Hubbard
“Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man wants to make a million dollars, the the best way would be to start his own religion.”
L. Ron Hubbard

“Scientology always has been a game of power and control. L. Ron Hubbard was the ultimate con man, and it's hard to figure out how much of Scientology was an experiment in brainwashing and controlling people, and how much of it was truly intended to help people.”
Jenna Miscavige Hill, Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape

Lawrence Wright
“The baby boom eventually prompted Hubbard to order that no one could get pregnant without his permission; according to several Sea Org members, any woman disobeying his command would be "off-loaded" to another Scientology organization or flown to New York for an abortion.”

“VERY EARLY ONE MORNING in July 1977, the FBI, having been tipped off about Operation Snow White, carried out raids on Scientology offices in Los Angeles and Washington, DC, carting off nearly fifty thousand documents. One of the files was titled “Operation Freakout.” It concerned the treatment of Paulette Cooper, the journalist who had published an exposé of Scientology, The Scandal of Scientology, six years earlier. After having been indicted for perjury and making bomb threats against Scientology, Cooper had gone into a deep depression. She stopped eating. At one point, she weighed just eighty-three pounds. She considered suicide. Finally, she persuaded a doctor to give her sodium pentothal, or “truth serum,” and question her under the anesthesia. The government was sufficiently impressed that the prosecutor dropped the case against her, but her reputation was ruined, she was broke, and her health was uncertain. The day after the FBI raid on the Scientology headquarters, Cooper was flying back from Africa, on assignment for a travel magazine, when she read a story in the International Herald Tribune about the raid. One of the files the federal agents discovered was titled “Operation Freakout.” The goal of the operation was to get Cooper “incarcerated in a mental institution or jail.”

“The law of manifestation operates like a triangle: First, know what you want and visualize it as if you already had it; Second, see it behind the illusion of reality, practice it in your decisions, choose the people you hang out with, etc; Third, believe, have faith and work on your emotions to be at the right frequency. This triangle of manifestation is one of the secrets of many religions: Christianity, Scientology, and Freemasonry. In Masonry is seen as "heart, mind and desire"; in Scientology is perceived as "reality, communication and affinity"; in Christianity is understood as "Father, son and holy ghost"; basically, "actions, learnings and emotions". In Christianity, the Father equals reality or the Creator of the illusion, the son is the way, the path, he road of our decisions and actions, and the holy ghost is our heart, instincts and desires manifested in that same path. In word words, through Jesus, and with the power of the holy ghost, you reach God. This is an allegory that not many Christians can understand. Jesus represent behavior - right and wrong, the holy ghost is our faith, your heart and emotions reflecting back at you what you attract, it's the energy that connects you to your dreams, and God represents the Architect of Reality. So, through moral behavior and positive emotions, your understand God and life, and then you receive "paradise". This paradise is whatever you dream for yourself. Furthermore, if someone has shown you this way, he has been as an angel to you, a messenger of God; if someone stopped you from reaching it, he has been as a demon, a worker for Satan, the enemy, if you failed in seeing this path, you have redirected yourself towards hell. And if you hate your life, you are already in hell. If you want to get out of hell, you must accept the truth, and this truth is that you must know God, for He is the truth. He and the truth are one and the same.”

“Of course, the tricky thing about these little questions was that, once I started asking them, it was hard to stop.”
Jenna Miscavige Hill

“В этом отношении наиболее американизированной является секта, называющая себя «Христианской наукой». У нее миллионы приверженцев, и по существу своему она является чем-то вроде колоссальной лечебницы, только без участия докторов и лекарств. «Христианская наука» велика и богата. Замечательные храмы с красивыми банковскими портиками принадлежат ей во многих городах и городках. «Христианская наука» не предлагает ждать бесконечно долго вознаграждения на небесах. Она делает свой бизнес на земле. Эта религия практична и удобна. Она говорит: – Ты болен? У тебя грыжа? Поверь в бога – и грыжа пройдет! Христианство как наука, как нечто немедленно приносящее пользу! Это понятно среднему американцу, это доходит до его сознания, замороченного годами непосильной и торопливой работы. Религия, которая так же полезна, как электричество. Это годится. В это можно верить. – Ну, хорошо! А если грыжа все-таки не пройдет? – Это значит, что вы недостаточно веруете, недостаточно отдались богу. Верьте в него – и он поможет вам во всем. Он поможет во всем. В Нью-Йорке мы зашли как-то в одну из церквей «Христианской науки», в центре города. Небольшая группа людей сидела на скамьях и слушала пожилого джентльмена, одетого в хороший, сшитый у портного, костюм. (В Америке костюм, сделанный по заказу, является признаком состоятельности.) Мистер Адамс, который сопровождал нас в этой экскурсии, навострил уши и, наклонив голову, внимательно прислушивался. Он сделал нам рукой знак подойти поближе. То, что мы услышали, очень походило на сцену в нью-йоркской ночлежке, куда мы попали в первый же вечер по приезде в Америку. Только там уговаривали нищих, а здесь уговаривали богатых. Но уговаривали совершенно одинаково – при помощи живых свидетелей и неопровержимых фактов. – Братья, – говорил пожилой джентльмен, – двадцать лет тому назад я был нищ и несчастен. Я жил в Сан-Франциско. У меня не было работы, жена моя умирала, дети голодали. Мне неоткуда было ждать помощи, как только от бога. И как-то утром голос бога мне сказал: «Иди в Нью-Йорк и поступи на службу в страховое общество». Я бросил все и пробрался в Нью-Йорк. Голодный и оборванный, я ходил по улицам и ждал, когда господь мне поможет. Наконец я увидел вывеску страхового общества и понял, что бог послал меня именно сюда. Я вошел в это громадное и блестящее здание. В моем ужасном костюме меня не хотели пустить к директору. Но я все-таки прошел к нему и сказал: – Я хочу получить у вас работу. – Вы знаете страховое дело? – спросил он меня. – Нет, – ответил я твердым голосом. – Почему же вы хотите работать именно в страховом обществе? Я посмотрел на него и сказал: – Потому, что господь бог послал меня к вам. Директор ничего не ответил мне, вызвал секретаря и приказал ему принять меня на службу лифтером. Дойдя до этого места, рассказчик остановился. – Что же случилось с вами потом? – нетерпеливо спросил один из слушателей. – Вы хотите знать, кто я такой теперь? Теперь я вице-президент этого страхового общества. И это сделал бог.”

“Few coffee shops have books, fewer have good books, and even less will have one book that can change your whole life. Now, the question is: How many people can find that book? And, among those who do, how many will read it? Because, you see, life always provides opportunities, but not many can see them, when they're just there, waiting to be found, when they come our way, even if in the most unexpected place in the world. One has to be very sharp to recognize a window of opportunity in a wall of illusions. And the ability to redirect attention, demands that one can be capable as well of knowing his own limitations in the vast sea of energy and vibrations. Now, I could be talking about a book, a group or a person, as the axiom remains true to itself.”

“The only thing secretive about secret societies is the fear that the arrogant inside these groups have of sharing the little they know, because they often don't even understand their own books and struggle with little. Their real fear is that someone may come along, understand everything better and faster than they do and before they can, and then, by default, lead them to exclusion by ignorance. On the other hand, their fear blinds them from knowing more and identifying those who can take them to a higher level, the same individuals that they clame to be waiting for and that only appear every couple of hundred years or thousand. This paradox is what leads their groups to extinction by self-imposed destructive behavior or to practices that have are in complete contradiction towards what their founder or founders intended. As a matter of fact, the more this reality manifests before our eyes, the easier it is to find quotes in books written by founders of such groups in complete contradiction with what you hear everyone inside these groups speaking. What I’m really saying here is that Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, Scientology, and many other groups out there, have long lost their entitlement to ownership of their own name, and as much as Christianity is today more in tune to an evil God than a benevolent one. Their real intention, even if manifested mostly at a subconscious level, is to keep away anyone that contradicts what they want to see, rather than what they should be seeing. Ironically, they are doing exactly what was done unto them by the Inquisition, the Nazis, the Egyptians, and any other group that once opposed them. They are their own enemy. And when their Jesus comes, they neglect him, ridicule him, ignore him and even conspire against him. They are the greatest shame of their own ancestors. They are the poison they fear. They are the real enemy of their own group.”

“Imi place sa-i ajut pe altii si consider ca cea mai mare placere a vietii este sa vezi un om eliberat de umbrele care-i intuneca zilele.
Aceste umbre par atat de dese si il apasa atat de mult, incat atunci cand descopera ca acestea sunt doar umbre si ca poate vedea prin ele si poate sta sub soare, el este nespus de incantat.”
Hubbard L. Ron

David G. McAfee
“If you think it’s offensive that I call alleged biblical miracles ridiculous, you should ask yourself whether or not it’s ridiculous to insist that Muhammad flew on a winged horse. Or that the earth was hatched from a cosmic egg? Or that Xenu, the dictator of the Galactic Confederacy, brought billions of his people to earth 75 million years ago and killed them using hydrogen bombs? These are all religious beliefs of others, but that doesn't mean calling them ridiculous is an insult - it's an objective fact until proven otherwise.”
David G. McAfee

Lawrence Wright
“There is no question that a belief system can have positive, transformative effects on people's lives. Many current and former Scientologists have attested to the value of their training and the insight they derived from their study of the religion. They have the right to believe whatever they choose. But it is a different matter to use the protections afforded a religion by the First Amendment to falsify history, to propagate forgeries, and to cover up human-rights abuses.”
