Visitors can learn why these people chose Scientology as their religion.
The Church’s website explains that Scientology is an applied religious philosophy and features visual depictions of some of the Church's core principles. The website also details four of The Church of Scientology’s worldwide campaigns – anti-drugs, human rights, volunteer ministers and The Way to Happiness (a common sense moral code) as well as data on the secular programs of Narconon and Applied Scholastics - programs that address drug addiction and literacy.
The word Scientology literally means "the study of truth." It comes from the Latin word "scio" meaning "knowing in the fullest sense of the word" and the Greek word "logos" meaning "study of." Scientology is the study and handling of the spirit in relationship to itself, others and all of life.
The Scientology religious philosophy was founded by L. Ron Hubbard. Mr. Hubbard is a 3-time Guinness Book of World Records holder of the most published works by a single author, most audio book titles on Earth and most translated author.
The “Know Yourself Know Life” (http://www.scientology.org) ads are sponsored by the Church of Scientology which was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 by a group of Scientologists, and within a few years churches were formed across the country and around the world. Today there are 8,000 churches, missions and related organizations in 164 countries. For more information you can also visit http://www.whatisscientology.org.
