Its all fair and well for scientology to protest, but, seriously, they're frauds.
L. Ron Hubbard based scientology on an 'alternative' grande explanation theory to pyschology and psychiatry. He beleived that, rather than things
like our ego, subconcius, organic structure of the brain, and stresses, leading to some of our psychological actions, than instead "engrams" are
what dicatate our actions. The idea was that if a person, at an early stage, hears some statements, that those statements will be 'implanted' into
their minds, and dictate their future action. Hubbard furhter claimed that his 'process' could undo the effect of these engrams. Later he claimed
that engrams were actually alien spirits from another dimension.
So, sure, there are problems with modern psychiatry, but scientology is complete BS, and just plain stupid.
