Sorry….

…for not answering your email over the last two weeks. I have been busy collecting new experiences. Maybe I’ll talk about them at some point but more importantly I wanted to let you know about something I found a couple of days ago: the new Scientology.org website.

Without much noise, actually with no noise at all, the Church launched a new website at Scientology.org. It’s great and has a lot of answers to Scientology and Dianetics and a big biographical section on David Miscavige.

So while you are watching Scientology events on the new website (or spout curse words because some of your lies have once more been disproven), I’ll dive into may emails and see what I can come up with to answer your questions. The friendly ones.

See ya,

That took a while: Anonymous jailed for 366 days

Just another proof how Anonymous can ruin your life: Per today’s media Anonymous Dmitriy Guzner got jailed for 366 days for attacking Scientology.org. Not only that – once he is out of jail, he has another two years of probation. Not reported, but likely is that he has to pay up to $100,000 in restitution for the damage he and his “friends” (none of which showed up to plead in his case) created back then in January 2008, when Scientology.org was crashed for a couple of hours.

Update: Also in the Star Ledger, 18 November 2009, and there it is: $37,500 in restitution.

Freedom Magazine

…. got their site brushed up. Great content and lots of it, finally! If you don’t want to spend a lot of time looking through the many pages of the new issue of Freedom Magazine online, go download the PDF here or on Scientology Myths.

Nice long and nicer little articles like this one about human rights:

Human Rights

Central to Scientology beliefs is a conviction that all humankind is entitled to inalienable rights. So it is that for more than 50 years Scientologists have championed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Today, the Church of Scientology sponsors the largest non-governmental information campaign to make the Universal Declaration of Human Rights known the world over.

The Church’s human rights initiative sponsors groups and activities and provides its materials to individuals, groups and government agencies in 82 nations. This includes:

  • What are Human Rights? booklets educate youth and adults on the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in terms anyone can understand.
  • A study guide, activities manual and educator’s classroom kit give teachers, human rights groups and governments effective tools to educate youth and adults on their human rights.
  • An accompanying documentary video, The Story of Human Rights complements the PSAs, booklets and educator materials as a further tool to bring about a universal awareness and respect for human rights.

Overview of results:

  • Since 2006, more than 1.6 billion people have viewed the Human Rights PSAs on 3,553 stations in 16 languages across 73 nations.
  • The Human Rights World Tour has traveled 174,000 miles throughout 45 nations, reaching over 11 million people.
  • Over 1.5 million human rights publications containing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights have been distributed to human rights groups, educators and individuals.
  • Over 500,000 people have visited the United for Human Rights (www.humanrights.com) and Youth for Human Rights (www.youthforhumanrights.org) Internet sites in the last three years.
  • More than 380,000 human rights information mailings have been sent to human rights groups and government agencies.
  • More than 200,000 people have signed the Human Rights Petition urging governments to adopt reforms in human rights and to give the Universal Declaration of Human Rights the force of law

Other stories are covering some creepy journalists of the St. Petersburg Times. But the stories about David Miscavige take the price.

In short, go get the magazine! It helps to get an idea about Scientology, and could answer a couple of questions.

Scientology Information Campaign Drives Tenthousands to Scientology.org Website

Scientology Know Yourself, Know Life (http://www.scientology.org) ads, launched May 18th, by the Church of Scientology’s International office have been running in the US and Canada on MTV, Discovery, The Learning Channel, CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, ESPN, Fox News and Fox Sports. The Know Yourself, Know Life ads have been driving tenthousands to the referenced website to find out about Scientology. The current Know Yourself Know Life ads will air daily until the end of 2009.
Additionally, the video channel website http://www.scientology.org features a new section called “Meet a Scientologist” with videos of 100 Scientologists from all walks of life – bus driver, artists, inventor, doctor, professionals, race car driver, equestrian, housewife, and others – in their life situations. Visitors can learn why these people chose Scientology as their religion.

The Church’s website explains that Scientology is an applied religious philosophy and features visual depictions of some of the Church’s core principles. The website also details four of The Church of Scientology’s worldwide campaigns – anti-drugs, human rights, volunteer ministers and The Way to Happiness (a common sense moral code) as well as data on the secular programs of Narconon and Applied Scholastics – programs that address drug addiction and literacy.

The word Scientology literally means “the study of truth.” It comes from the Latin word “scio” meaning “knowing in the fullest sense of the word” and the Greek word “logos” meaning “study of.” Scientology is the study and handling of the spirit in relationship to itself, others and all of life.
The Scientology religious philosophy was founded by L. Ron Hubbard. Mr. Hubbard is a 3-time Guinness Book of World Records holder of the most published works by a single author, most audio book titles on Earth and most translated author.
The “Know Yourself Know Life” (http://www.scientology.org) ads are sponsored by the Church of Scientology which was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 by a group of Scientologists, and within a few year churches were formed across the country and around the world. Today there are 8,000 churches, missions and related organizations in 164 countries. For more information you can also visit http://www.whatisscientology.org.

  • What is this blog?

    I am running a website, ScientologyMyths.info which deals with critical questions about Scientology.
    So naturally I am into finding answers to the questions that are constantly being asked all over the internet about Scientology, Scientologists, the Church, L. Ron Hubbard and the Church's leader, David Miscavige. I want to find answers from independent sources, not only Church of Scientology owned sites or anti-Scientology hate sites. So what's left? Court documents, photos and other reliable sources. Help me find stuff and ask whatever you want. Thanks!
