L. Ron Hubbard in Phoenix

With the Grand Opening of the Church of Scientology Phoenix June 23, there is finally an Ideal Scientology Org (Organization) in the birthplace of Scientology.

It was there in 1952 he arrived at the monumental discovery that gave birth to the Scientology religion: the isolation, identification and exteriorization of the human spirit. During the formative years of the religion, Scientologists traveled to this city from across three continents to hear Mr. Hubbard speak. He delivered over 600 lectures in Phoenix—more than in any other city in the world. These lectures, along with seminal Scientology works he authored in Phoenix, comprise a significant portion of the religion’s fundamental scripture.

Phoenix was also a hot spot in 1952.  This was in the early days of the Cold War, with the U.S.A. and Soviet Union vying for nuclear supremacy.
