Video: Briefly Describing Scientology

I’ve been asked a few times to briefly describe what Scientology is, to me, and what it is that I believe.

Answering what I believe, my viewpoints on things, how I approach being a parent, etc – that’s a scope of explanation that you’re not going to get in 2 minutes.  But I tried here to describe the core what Scientology is about, and what it is that I believe.

I go into a bit more detail on it on this page:  What is Scientology? What is Scientology Auditing?

The main item discussed, though, comes from a quote from the book, Scientology: Fundamentals of Thought, a book intended as an ideal overview of the subject.  The quote:

    Due to negative connotations of the word “religion” and because use of that word to describe Scientology causes people to think that Scientology is about believing things without questioning them, I tend to stay away from using that word when I tell others about it. Undoubtedly, it is a religion, but not the type where you have to blindly take things on faith (what makes it a religion is that it is the result of L. Ron Hubbard’s research on the spirit of man, and because it provides one with a path of discovering all about the spiritual side of existence, not because anyone worships God or anything). However, I personally prefer to regard it as a science, just as L. Ron Hubbard described it here – “…this is the science of knowing how to know. It is a science which does not include within it cold and musty data, data to be thrust down the throat without examination and acceptance.” – Book, Creation of Human Ability, p. 276. “Science” or “religion”, I think people can choose what ever category of Scientology they’re comfortable with. But for a lot of people, religion is a dirty word.
