Thread: [WWP] Scientology Religiosity? (Research Packets & Dox)

    Post [WWP] Scientology Religiosity? (Research Packets & Dox)

    Greetings All!

    Crossposted highlights from a new/active project I finally unleashed on the hivemind last week:
    http://forums.whyweprotest.net/threa...ets-dox.93988/

    This series of fair use e-publications is for the sole purpose of referring people too, when the awkward question of "Is Scientology a Religion?" arises. Also - harpoon ammo... for reaching out to community leaders, religion studies majors and other bible thumpers who express an interest in seriously questioning the religious nature of Scientology.

    Lots more introductory details included on the WWP thread above, as well as in the Materials Outline document (See Project Introduction & Publication Notes)

    I've been working on harvesting leaks & compiling these publications for approximately 90 days. So far I got the first of at least 9 volumes released, with the others slated to follow w/ a new release every 2-3 weeks from now until the end of this year.

    Enjoy!

    Quote Originally Posted by Volume I Summary
    This volume of the Scientology Religiosity? publication series has been compiled to serve as the introductory module for a larger body of materials, and covers some of the basic principles of Scientology when viewed from the perspective of being classified as a new religious movement. The enclosed subject matter reveals the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard and other promotional material from the Church of Scientology on common aspects of “salvation” that is adhered to by the more traditional faiths:

    • The existence of God,
    • The role of heaven and hell, and
    • The eternal hope of mankind in accordance with the Scientology tenets of faith.


    Sections v1.01.001 through v1.01.005 provides a brief overview of how the major principles of the Scientology system of spiritual beliefs are commonly defined to the outside world and perceived internally. Subsection 006 covers a sampling of widely touted quotations from Scientology’s ideology that are widely held to be controversial, with additional passage segments to follow in later volumes of this series.

    Sections v1.01.007 through v1.01.010 provides a look at the Scientology interpretation of heaven and hell, with insights into their methodologies for overcoming the limitations of human existence as defined within strictly internal-usage materials. While subsection 011 exposes a more detailed explanation of Scientology doctrines as portrayed to the general public.

    Sections v1.01.012 through v1.01.018 offers a further look at the Scientology approach to religious salvation through the teachings and alternative counseling techniques of L. Ron Hubbard, which are organized into a dual path of training and psychotherapy processes known as “The Bridge.”

    This volume concludes with a vintage statement of what Scientology disciples aim to achieve with their spiritual progress up “The Bridge” in section v1.01.019. Followed by a return to the modern day reality of how the public typically perceives the opposing claims of Hubbard’s doctrines being both a science and a religion through the personal experience of an investigative journalist.

    Proper citations for all the source materials reprinted within this publication for educational purposes are indexed in the back matter under the “List of Scientology Illustrations” section. Additional recommended references for each subsection of the v1.01 materials is also included under the “Further Reading” section for a progressive continuation of studies on the topics covered herein.
    Feedback, suggestions, discrepancies & other input on how to make this publication better in later editions is welcome here, or in the original WWP project thread where we are keeping opinions/debate on the actual materials & subject matter separate from ongoing compilation & publication efforts.

    And altho I personally dont have an opinion/debate or topical angle that I care to discuss my own views at this time (until the series is complete)... I'm interested to see what the knowledgeable regulars over here on ESMB have to say. So TIA for your comments & feedback!!

    WOW! Bloody wonderful.

    I particularly like the way you took the time and care to put in clear type the text of imaged old original docs that, being somewhat ancient, were a little faint and hard to read because of the original red stencil ink having faded.

    A wonderful presentation AL! You have some real treasures in there.

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.'

    bump for latest project update...

    Scientology Religiosity? Research Volume I:
    Updated 2nd edition (version v1.22Oct2011) released


    Scribd: http://www.scribd.com/doc/65916147/S...osity-Volume-I

    Fileshare: http://www.mediafire.com/?onu4di1ef3bzmls

    Compilation Changes:
    Section v1.01 expanded and majorly reorganized. Subsections 007 & 016 added, 003 materials replaced, 009 extended and Volume Summary adjusted accordingly.

    Document Description:
    Scientology Religiosity? Vol I - God, Heaven, Hell & The Hope of Mankind :: This volume of the Scientology Religiosity? publication series has been compiled to serve as the introductory module for a larger body of materials, and covers some of the basic principles of Scientology when viewed from the perspective of being classified as a new religious movement. The enclosed subject matter reveals the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard and other promotional material from the Church of Scientology on common aspects of “salvation” that is adhered to by the more traditional faiths.

    Usage Notes:
    The online scribd version clobbers some of the hyperlinks in the front & back matter sections, and lacks the advantage of the bookmarks pane setup for ease of navigation in a PDF reader. So the downloaded version in your local PDF reader is strongly recommended for serious use as a study/reference guide.

    Next up... The Materials Index for this project will be updated soonly, for logging all the stuff recently gathered & initial release of Volume II following shortly thereafter.

    Meanwhile, there's been other work-in-progress stuff brewing on the WWP project thread starting here:
