Developed by L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology is a religion that believes people are immortal beings who have forgotten their true nature. It attempts to help people understand one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being. Scientology addresses the spirit—not the body or mind—and believes that Man is far more than a product of his environment, or his genes.
