This article is not written by a Scientologist. It was written by a member of another, far larger, organization. Maybe you've heard of it. It's called the human race. The article illustrates beautifully the effect we are creating, and the simple beauty of how lucky we are on this planet, when it's all said and done, to have each other. The human race is so diverse. Every culture brings something infinitely valuable and important to the table. Shoulder to shoulder, I don't think there's anything in the universe that could best mankind. For all its faults, and Lord knows its faults are many, Earth is still the craziest best place a spirit can call home. And it has fantastic potential. My opinion.
What we have lacked on this planet is a mankind that knows and loves itself. That understands it's own assets, talents and character. Yes, we have crime. Yes, we have war. We have the worst and the best.
Mankind has focused so much on its worst, it has yet to fully recognize and celebrate it's best. We've all known people who dwelt on their own shortcomings and failings to their own detriment. In fact, that is the state in which most people start in Scientology. Through training and auditing, they discover there is so much good within themselves that they've always overlooked. Then comes pure magic: the more good they find in themselves, the better they become for real. We've all heard of the "vicious circle"; well in real Scientology, we have the reverse: the expanding spiral.
As it is with the individual; so it is with mankind.
This article was entirely unsolicited. I think it is remarkable. Our message IS getting through.
Some of our readers have said, "Why don't you just go to the FBI and tell them what happened?" Well, I know of three people (myself included) who did just that and frankly the FBI didn't believe them. The facts are too unbelieveable. The monster the Church of Scientology has morphed into is too fantastic, too incredible to be absorbed from one source. The abuse is on a scale that actually boggles the mind. It is probably the most shocking, fascinating story of recent times. So part of the idea of this website was to put it all in one place, so that a non-Scientologist could review and digest the information at their own leisure and eventually get the full picture.
This website is what LRH called a multiple viewpoint system, meaning it enables a person to understand the full situation and all its ramifications through multiple viewpoints (multiple sets of eyes). In this way, one isn't swayed by human emotion or individual errors in perception or judgement. Well, it's working. And why not? It's Scientology. On behalf of Scientology-cult, let us warmly welcome FLYING FORTRESS. -- Thoughtful
The Damage Done
I caught you knockin'
I've never been associated with the Church of Scientology, but I believe I understand the tenets and basic philosophy of Scientology. I have read virtually all the articles and comments posted on this site. I would not call myself religious, although I did attend seminary at one time. I would rather be considered a spiritual being having a human experience. I find we believe many of the same things.
What of all the blameless children who were ripped from the nurturing influences of their parents to be shipped across the country and raised by proxy among minders, handlers and task masters? What a sad story this is! Thanks to some for coming forward and putting this in perspective for me and hopefully others.
