Albert Einstein, in “Relativity: The Special and General Theory

“Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible, and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in point of fact, religious.”

Max Planck, One of the Founders of Quantum Mechanics

“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.”

Hubbard's Fake Religion

L Ron Hubbard was not a scientist or a minister of religion and knew nothing about spirituality but he was a science fiction writer who created a church to avoid paying taxes while conning billions of dollars from a brain washed public. His successor David Miscavige is much the same as Hubbard with ABSOLUTELLY no knowledge of spirituality and a pretty evil guy.

Hubbard was also quite an evil person as witness how he had his students thrown overboard from his ship for making errors on his class 8 courses. This was an extremely dangerous activity putting these terrified students’ lives at risk. It was terribly abusive and can be classified as crimes against humanity. His religion is based on his science fiction writings and about space opera which is great for science fiction movies but a crime for conning people out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by promising them to become spiritually and incredibly powerful. He named this state as Operating Thetan. It means in plain English a powerful spiritual state, without a body, where you can destroy entire planets and destroy civilisations.

Hubbard himself did not believe in God nor do his followers. After his death in 1986 he was granted a leave of absence of 21 years by church policy and must return when that period expired. It is now 31 years ago and he has not returned for active duty, and never will.

Since the discovery of quantum physics in the previous century spirituality has become a fact and there are many scientists researching the subject of spirituality and has become a science in its own right. So I have named the “church” of Scientology as a Fake Religion based on Hubbard’s science fiction fantasies.

I spent 22 years working with him and I know he was getting ill to the point that he had to leave his ship, stationed in Europe, and seek medical attention in America. I was not aware of Hubbard ever leaving his ship except on one occasion when he went onto the Avon River, another ship of his fleet, and cruised around the Greek Islands to investigate past civilizations which I was a part of. He sat writing morning noon and night with little to no physical exercise , a prerequisite for maintaining health.

Yes he was quite evil at times. Throwing people overboard and endangering their lives, denying people of sleep up to 72 hours as penalties for making a mistake. He created the the Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF) for persons not quite bright or not doing well on their posts or when he was angry with someone. Persons on the RPF had to work from 9AM  to 10 PM every day for months on end. He created the condition of Suppressive Person and declared thousands of people suppressive forcing people in good standing to disconnect from their friends, children or parents. He allowed his wife to go to jail for crimes that he ordered her to do.

His successor, David Miscavige, is just as evil forcing Hubbard's disconnection policies and and carrying on with Hubbard's working hours from 9AM to 10PM 6 days per week. They, Hubbard and Miscavige, have absolutely no idea about health. They made my wife work 20 hours per day until she had a nervous break down. Sleep deprivation can result in serious disease but they just don't care. The staff is just so brain washed that they cannot think properly which I experienced.

My take on Hubbard after studying nutrition and health that he was mentally and physically ill. No exercise, smoked like a trooper, toxic smoke inhalation from the ships engines and who knows what else. When he took ill and went to America it was I who had to attend to his quarters and ensure there were no toxic fibers in his sleeping quarters that he may have been allergic to and no toxic fumes from the engine room in his living, sleeping and working environment.

Yes he was just an ordinary man with a flare for science fiction writing and in a state of delusion by thinking we could create supreme human beings with his science fiction.
