The Dianetics Video Channel

Earlier this month (while I was out of town) the Dianetics video channel was brought out. It came out around May 9th - which is the anniversary of Dianetics. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Scientology and... Mint?

Okay, I got asked the funniest question by a coworker a bit ago and I've been meaning to share it here. She asked me if Scientologists were allowed to have mint or mint-flavored products. Apparently her dentist told her that he didn't have any mint fluoride (only that disgusting cherry kind) because Scientologists aren't allowed to have mint.

The answer to this question is... drumroll please... Scientologists are indeed allowed to have mint and/or mint flavored products. There are no dietary restrictions in Scientology. You can eat or drink whatever you want.

It's so funny to me because I see all these outrageous things that people say about Scientology that have zero basis in fact. Where do people even get this stuff? I mean, do they just make it up?

Anyway, if you have heard some strange, outrageous thing about Scientology, by all means tell me and I'll let you know if it's true or false.

Personal Integrity

Hey! I'm back from vacation. :)

This post is about something I should have gone over earlier - Personal Integrity.

In Scientology, personal integrity is defined like this: "knowing what you know, what you know is what you know - and to have the courage to know and say what you have observed. And that is integrity and there is no other integrity."

In the article (called Personal Integrity) written by L. Ron Hubbard, he goes on to say, "Nothing in Dianetics and Scientology is true for you unless you have observed it and it is true according to your observation. That is all."

This is one of the things I think is so cool about Scientology. You are not asked to take anything on faith, but you are asked to apply the information in Scientology and see if it works. If it does, they you'll know it's true.

What do you think about this?
