SUBJECT: Declaration submitted by Sherman Lenske to the Riverside County, California court conducting the suit filed by Ronald DeWolf, a.k.a. L. Ron Hubbard, Jr., a.k.a. Nibs Hubbard on 12 November 1982 in which DeWolf claimed that L. Ron Hubbard was dead or incompetent and sought receivership and Trusteeship of the estate and assests of L. Ron Hubbard.
It purportedly was executed on 15 May 1983 by L. Ron Hubbard.
In it, the missing L. Ron Hubbard insists he is not missing, that he is not dead, that his affairs are in good hands, that he has no intention of becoming unmissing in order to prove that he is not missing or dead, and basically tells everyone they can like it or stuff it.
During their absence in Reno, Nevada, Mr. Hubbard suffered a
crippling stroke. Upon information and belief, Mr. Hubbard
received no medical attention from any physician licensed to
practice in California, until Dr. Denk returned from Reno, Nevada.
Dr. Denk had prescribed and administered a number of drugs to Mr. Hubbard, including the
psychiatric drug Hydroxyzine (Vistaril) which is usually
administered in combination with other hypnotic, psychotic and
sedating narcotics and restricted drugs. Indeed, the Coroner's
report indicates that there were "ten recent needle marks" in "the
right gluteal area" of the dead body.
That’s great to hear, I'm happy your eyes are open
Thanks for that thread. It caused me great enlightenment and the research opened my eyes! I don't have any bad memories of Scientology. I wasn't that involved. I had a good time and met some great people. I'm glad I had the good fortune to leave when I did. That David Miscavige fellow is really something else!
For its principle ideas, it doesn’t seem so bad; it’s just a pity they take advantage over people with it. If it’s as great as people say someone should give the teachings away for free and end the power they have.
Scientology is a series of tools that analize the human condition, teaches one to indentify and take advantage weakness and then teaches one to plot a course of material success. Because, it addresses the human condition as being attached to a soul, or "Thetan" and proposes reincarnation it assumes the religious tax exemption. Many Scientologist really do care about "clearing" the planet.
Well its pay as you learn structure is unique, but honestly that’s about it as far as difference goes. All religions take money from its followers; all in a sense trick people they just use different methods. Scientology uses a direct method of control; where as mainstream religions are indirect and less obvious. When it comes down to it, all religions have the same control over their true followers; scientology just uses it for bad. Any religion has the power to make its true followers do anything which is extremely dangerous when you consider the history of groups like the church.
Scientology is the only "religion" that that I know of that tricks it followers into faith, revealing the "scriptures" as you pay $$ along the "Bridge to Total Freedom," which is trap.
Actually, Scientology didn't even start out as a church.

I’m sorry if my thread brought you any bad memories or anything.
Reality is people will believe anything given the right circumstances. Scientology follows the same principles of all religions and believing in scientology is in no way different to believing in the god of bible or whatever else. In fact when you think about it, scientology is actually a lot more realistic then most mainstream religions.
That doesn't sound like any typical religion to me, where one day they wake up and decide they are a church!
Sometime in the early 1970's, Scientology became a Church.
"A church?" I asked a friend who worked in the Guardian's Office, the notorious private CIA-like branch of Scientology. "Why?"
"It's just a tax matter," he reassured me. "It won't really change the way anything works. It's just a way to deal with the suppressive government." I was satisfied with the explanation. It was consistent with a policy from "Ron" which came out soon afterward in which he said, "Scientology 1970 is being planned on a religious organization basis throughout the world. "This will not upset in any way the usual activities of any organization. It is entirely a matter for accountants and solicitors."
Actually you might have a point there.

Sounds exactly like any religion to me. They just use slightly altered techniques and the timeframe is more recent. If scientology and christanity swapped places you would be saying the same thing against christanity and the bible.
