    (It's a bit freaky to see Psychiatrists talk like tone 40 Scientologists sales reps)

    Without all the crap, it's not scientology.

    Nope, it's just a different body of work, that employs some similar techniques, because Scientology falsely claimed that their techniques were created by Hubbard.

    I think the standing on the shoulders of giants comment I saw earlier is a good way to phrase it.

    A lot of schools of thought took off from earlier ones. Buddhism from Hinduism and later, elements of Buddhism were absorbed back into vedic practice- that's one example right there.

    And, of course, we all know that Hubbard begged/borrowed/stole/whatever from many other things to form Scn. Early psychoanalysis, Buddhism, some occult why should any Dianetics spin off be different?

    NOTE: The Man is NOT a Scientologist and he makes a distiction between Dianetics and Scientology. "Dianetics is used in Scientology"

    He "wishes the Scientologists well" lol
