Mike Rinder was at one time considered one of the guiding lights of what was called the “Scientology Independence Movement” just prior to this decade. I personally had my qualms about this whole thing. As my own definition of Scientologist aligned with L Ron Hubbard’s which is basically someone who actually applies Scientology to […]Read more "Regarding Dead Line Earth"
Sometime back I said that I would do an article on the original Golden Age of Tech released on May 9 1996 and has since been superseded by what is called “Phase II” as if the first phase wasn’t enough to completely wipe out technical results in Scientology Organizations. As with things like the claim […]Read more "Golden Age of “Tech”"

By “out of the scene” means that Ron was […]Read more "Schism (Part II)"

At one time after the Nicene Council what was called the Catholic Church dominated and was later challenged by what […]Read more "The Schism (Part I)"
I wonder if anyone noticed that yesterday was the anniversary of Dianetics the Modern Science of Mental Health’s publication in 1950. It used to be a big event at one time within the Scientology community but like Ron’s Birthday seems to have faded into obscurity. Doing a random web search I came up with this interesting […]Read more "Dianetics"
