Scientologists: Prayer is the process towards the divine

How does Scientology Work?

The Scientology religion provides answers to many questions about life and death. It encompasses an exact, precisely mapped-out path. In developing Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard discovered a technology to free the human spirit and thereby allow Man to really know himself.

Ron Hubbard wrote in Science of Survival: “No culture in the history of the world, save the thoroughly depraved and expiring … [Read more...]

Over the years, I’ve pretty consistently been interested in the spiritual side of existence – whether man and woman-kind are basically spiritual in nature or whether we are a happy accident of ancient molecular collisions. To a large extent I’m probably a 35+ year Scientologist because I found Scientology addressed that question head-on and, what’s more, allowed me to come to a definitive and personal answer to it for myself.
