My apologies if this has been posted before recently but I was just wondering how many Scientologists there are, or how many you guess they are (and reasoning why) I feel like I can't really trust what the church says because they seem to lie or exaggerate things for the "greatest good". I was told many times that there are over 100,000 Scientologists in L.A. alone. I find that hard to believe. I remember seeing the photoshopped images of people at the events. And I don't consider someone who has read a book or done a course a Scientologist. Only people who are currently active in the church.
