Giving too many chances

People can be very forgiving perhaps sometimes even too forgiving. Such is often the case in Scientology. We try to give a second chance whenever possible and that second chance often extends to third, forth, fifth and more chances.

Such was the case with Mark "Marty" Rathbun. Despite his really bad behavior he was given many chances but eventually he decided he didn't want any more chances and left the Church. It was his right to do that, no one can force you to be a Scientologist. But then he saw an opportunity to make a quick buck out of Scientology's huge popularity and his former position in the Church and so began his campaign of lies that culminated in a ridiculous news article (see "Inside the S.P. Times") and a TV show that really shows how bad journalism can get (see "A History of Lies")

Of course, there will be those who, despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, will insist that Rathbun's unsubstantiated accusations are true. Unfortunately for such people, Rathbun just went out of his way to prove how untrustworthy he is by getting himself arrested (Mark "Marty" Rathbun arrest documents) and then took no responsibility at all for his actions.

This nine-day-wonder is nearing the end of his ninth day and will soon relapse back into obscurity along with his lies and money making hopes. Personally, I can't wait for midnight to strike.

L. Ron Hubbard - Administrator

One of over a dozen Hubbard Colleges of Administration around the world, where more than 175,000 people have learned to apply Mr. Hubbard’s Administrative Technology.
Okay, so L. Ron Hubbard founded the Scientology religion and he did a lot of work as a humanitarian, so what has being an administrator got to do with all that? Surely running a business has nothing to do with religion or humanitarianism.

Well, you'd be surprised. Look at it this way: today in the apparently very prosperous United States of America there are more than 37 million people living below the poverty line. Spiritual improvement is not easy to give any attention to when you are on the verge of starvation.

L. Ron Hubbard developed highly workable methods for successfully running groups. These methods have been used to expand Scientology from one man in 1950 to over 7500 churches, missions and groups in over 100 countries today. This "Management Technology" can also be used to make businesses successful so they can employ more people and thus help them get above the poverty line.

You can read more about it here: L. Ron Hubbard - Administrator.

As LRH said, "Man’s happiness and the longevity of companies and states apparently depend upon organizational know-how."

L. Ron Hubbard - Humanitarian

Narconon Nepal, administered by a former Police Superintendent, has delivered drug education lectures to some 1.3 million people to date.
Whilst best known for founding Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard also did a great deal of work to help solve the societal problems that beset mankind, such as drug abuse, criminality, immorality and illiteracy.

His work in these fields have earned him many recognitions and awards and you can find out about this aspect of his life on the new L. Ron Hubbard website in the section called L. Ron Hubbard - Humanitarian.

LRH said, "I will not admit that there is a naturally bad, evil man on Earth," and you can see from what he did to help mankind that he truly believed it.

L. Ron Hubbard - Founder

L. Ron Hubbard founded the Scientology religion. Sure we all know that, but why? Why would a guy who had what many would consider an ideal life found a religion?

He was already well off from his writing. He was already famous from his exploits as an adventurer and explorer as well as from his writing. So what motivated him to found a religion?

The new L. Ron Hubbard website covers his life and motivations in depth but in the L. Ron Hubbard - Founder section you will hear that the goal of Scientology is "a greater freedom for the individual." Personally, I think that was the main motivation for L. Ron Hubbard, to bring a greater freedom to each individual member of mankind.

To find out for yourself, visit the new website, watch the videos and read the articles.

L. Ron Hubbard - Adventurer and Explorer

L. Ron Hubbard is probably best known as the founder of Scientology and then as a writer but in his younger days he was also known as an adventurer and explorer, leading expeditions to what were in those days exotic and rarely visited parts of the world.

Part of why he went on these expeditions was to observe and study peoples of different cultures so he could understand mankind better and perhaps answer some of the riddles of human existence.

This aspect of his life is covered in one section of the new L. Ron Hubbard website: L. Ron Hubbard - Adventurer and Explorer. It makes fascinating reading.

L. Ron Hubbard Early Years

L. Ron Hubbard's childhood home
The new L. Ron Hubbard website contains videos and articles on all aspects of his life.

Many of the videos contain excerpts from lectures that Ron gave where he talked about his life or used his own experiences as examples for the point he was trying to make.

One such short video can be seen here: L. Ron Hubbard - The Early Years.

L. Ron Hubbard Website - Revamped

The L. Ron Hubbard Website has been totally rebuilt and looks great. It documents the life and achievements of the founder of the Scientology religion, with videos, articles, amazing graphics and more.

A big part of understanding Scientology is understanding the man who founded it. And understanding L. Ron Hubbard has become very easy now with this new site.

I could burble on about LRH and his life, but I think the site does the best job, so get started by watching this short video of his life: L. Ron Hubbard, A brief chronology.
