Scientology is a Joke!

Here are some quotes about the founder of Scientology that are just so stooopid and funny!

"Hubbard enrolled at The George Washington University, where he took a course in civil engineering. His grades, however, were consistently poor and university records show that he attended for only two years, was on academic probation, failed in physics, and dropped out in 1931 without a degree. One of his classes was on "atomic and molecular phenomena"; on the basis of this, he later claimed to have been a "nuclear physicist", though his records showed that he scored an F in this course."

"In later years, Hubbard claimed to have been awarded a Ph.D. by Sequoia University in California. This non-accredited body was, however, later investigated by the Californian state authorities on the grounds of being a mail-order "degree mill" and Hubbard later publicly "resigned" his degree after it had become the subject of comment in the press."

"In June 1941, with war looming, Hubbard joined the United States Navy as a lieutenant junior grade. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, he was posted to Australia but was returned home, possibly after quarrelling with the US Naval Attaché, who rated him "unsatisfactory for any assignment"."

"Subsequently, he was given command of the harbor protection vessel USS YP-422, based in Boston, Massachusetts. Again, he fell out with his superior officer, who rated him "not temperamentally fitted for independent command.""

"Shortly after taking the PC-815 on her maiden voyage from Astoria to San Diego, California, his crew detected what he believed to be two Japanese submarines near the mouth of the Columbia River.They spent the next three days bombarding the area with depth charges, after which Hubbard claimed at least one Japanese submarine had been sunk. A subsequent investigation by the US Navy concluded Hubbard's vessel had in fact been attacking a "known magnetic deposit" on the seabed."

"Shortly after reaching San Diego, Hubbard ordered his crew to practice their gunnery by shelling one of the Coronado Islands, a small Mexican archipelago off the northwest coast of Baja California, in the belief it was uninhabited and belonged to the United States. Neither assumption was correct."

And yes... this is my basis on saying that Scientology is a joke!

Yep I'm going to change from an unbiased resource to an 'official' and biased account from another reasource... It actually supports both resources as the 'official' one has a massive silence where my resource fills those gaps. So both accounts actually support each other in a way.

Mmm, scientology does sound a bit...dodgy, doesn't it >_> Even when you leave out all that stuff about Hubbard.

But with the figs study, I think maybe some of the sources for Islam were a bit off/biased, because if all that stuff was true I don't think it would be a world religion :P It could've been true for some sects within Islam, but not the whole thing...

Scientology is just "religion/cult" changing from a fantasy book to a science fiction book.

Scientology is a joke, with or without Hubbard.

I read somewhere back in the 1990s that L.Ron Hubbard bet a friend that he could "invent" a religion (Scientology) and that millions would follow it, no matter how outlandish, because people are so gullible. It seems to be that he won that bet. The man was a master at deception and an incorrigible, opportunistic scoundrel.
