"It actually I believe is a cruelty to make a fellow human being be led
to believe that they are infested with demons, with these body
thetans, these disembodied spirits, who are just like us, except they
don't have their own bodies, they are confused and half asleep, but
somehow stuck to our bodies. This is just too much! "

"The OT VIII has taken responsibility over his/her "body
thetans" and clusters of body thetans inside their body
that were put there by the evil Lord Xenu. These body
thetans do not have check books but the OT does, so this
highly responsible OT pays about $350,000 to have them
exorcised and goes into session to talk to these body thetans
telepathically for many hundreds of hours to make them
wake up and go away. When all these pesky little critters
are gone, at the end of OT VIII, then the OT VIII is left in a
sublime state with the realization "Now I know who I am not
and am interested in finding out who I am" which makes them
worse off than before they walked through the door. And they
don't have any OT powers to speak of, mainly because there
is no such thing." - RolandRB

"When you meet the friendliest people you have ever known, who introduce you to the most loving group of people you've ever encountered, and you find the leader to be the most inspired, caring, compassionate and understanding person you've ever met, and then you learn the cause of the group is something you never dared hope could be accomplished, and all of this sounds too good to be true-it probably is too good to be true! Don't give up your education, your hopes and ambitions to follow a rainbow."

"do you generally carry the Handbook for Preclears on your
person? Me ... it's a comb, a hanky, maybe a good paperback.
Can't say that I'd want ol' Ron lurking about my handbag --
after all ... my wallet's in there!!! " - Songbird

"Scientology doesn't have "nothing".
What it has, is bastardized variations of psychology
set up to create unthinking automatons that want to
create more unthinking subserviant automatons."

"My experience in Scientology has taught me a few things.
Not that these came in any session, or any bulletin, or any
lecture. It taught me the three things that it didn’t want to
teach me: I am not a god. I am a human being. And
Scientology is not a religion." - Caroline Letkeman

From Hubbard's writings and lectures comes an almost inexhaustible flow of pretentious claims. Scientology is "the first major breakthrough by the exact sciences in the field of the humanities - dedicated in the finest tradition of human dignity and freedom espoused by brilliant men in all periods of man's ascendancy over his relationship to the animal"; it is "the only successfully validated psycho-therapy in the world"; it is "the first precision science in the field of the humanities". It lays claim to a great number of other "firsts", which need not be enumerated.

By frequent and repeated reference to his qualities Hubbard has built up for himself in the eyes of his followers a mighty image. The adulation and obeisance which they offer him is almost unbelievable. Scientology students are specifically taught that he is not God, lest they think he is. He himself insists in The Creation of Human Ability, that preclears must be taught that he is only a man.

The Board heard expert medical evidence that the assertions in this quotation, if intelligible at all, are quite contrary to accepted medical facts. The fanciful accumulation of "all knee injuries in the past" does not make sense: it is quite incorrect to say that in traumatic arthritis fluid avoids an injured knee, the reverse is the fact;...

"If you notice you lie to your mom:
You're just Keeping Scientology® Working

If you find that you have to tell your children never to call
you again:
You're just Keeping Scientology® Working

If you discover that all your newspapers and TV Stations are
'suppressive':
You're just Keeping Scientology® Working

If you can't complain when your business partner steals your
money and sneers at you as he does it:
You're just Keeping Scientology® Working

If you think that Thomas Paine would have been a good
Scientologist, but obviously had too much 'case' to recognize
the invaluable efforts of L. Ron Hubbard (who wasn't born till
a bit later):
You're just Keeping Scientology® Working

If you can believe that George Orwell's '1984' has nothing to
do with Scientology:
You're just Keeping Scientology® Working

If you can justify stealing the proceeds of a dedicated
Scientologist's checking account as 'KSW':
You're just Keeping Scientology® Working"

"A fairly iron-clad rule of thumb when evaluating Hubbard’s
motivations seems to be that the more he spoke against it
(drugs, homosexuality, theft, lying…..long list here…) it is
pretty much guaranteed he was guilty of it. Every time."
