Book on Scientology pre-dates Hubbard's Creation

L. Ron Hubbard, was once quoted as saying "If you want to get rich, you start a religion."

Now it appears we know where he got his source material for the so-called "Church of Scientology": he plagiarized it.

Hubbard founded the first Church of Scientology in 1953, but a book published almost 20 years earlier appears to have a lot of similarities to how his "church" appears to run.

The book "Scientology: Science of the Constitution and Usefulness of Knowledge" was first published in 1934 by the Publishing House "Ernst Reinhardt" in Munich, Germany.

I wonder how the "church" will try to explain this one away.

Strangely it does not suprise me one little bit.

The recent Tom Cruise video was hilarious!
