Scientology is a newer religion that is becoming more and more popular. According to Scientology.org, The religion was developed by L. Ron Hubbard in 1950 after the writing of his book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health. After many people were amazed by Hubbard’s subject in dianetics, he started giving lectures and classes on the subject. Eventually the Hubbard Dianetics Research Foundation was started. While Hubbard studied the mind, he also studied the spirit and soul, which is the fuel for the mind, Hubbard called it “Scientology” (“scientology.org” 2012). After holding classes on Scientology in Phoenix for hundreds of students, they eventually started churches in their towns throughout five different countries. The first church of Scientology was started in February, 1954 (“scientology.org” 2012). Scientology is a religion that is meant to be a pathway to the understanding of one’s self. This religion is based on one’s self and not a higher being. This religion was made so that instead of standing of faith, you have the power to believe in yourself. The website states, “The ultimate goal of Scientology is true spiritual enlightenment and freedom for all.” This religion was built on the foundation of finding the reason for life and making the world a more peaceful place. Scientology is the belief that you can solve your own problems, accomplish goals, and live in forever happiness. Scientology teaches that whatever the world throws at you, there is always a reasonably easy solution. The website states, “Scientology offers a pathway of greater freedom” (“scientology.org” 2012). Within the religion of Scientology, no one is expected to believe in someone or something, only themselves. In this religion man is the Supreme Being; it is a lot different than many other religions that believe that man is the making of the environment and genetics. Scientologists believe that every man can be whatever or whoever they desire. Scientology does not base its belief on a system of beliefs or rules, it offers methods of use
