Hubbard’s lies: A Scientological perspective

The following was originally posted as a comment on Jeff Hawkins’ Leaving Scientology blog, from a user named Idle Org:

“It is admittedly hard for me to separate LRH the individual from his tech, but I’m trying.

“If he indeed made up (lied about) many of his adventures, then the man was sitting on withholds permanently. Per his own tech, wouldn’t that bar him from making much case gain? Wouldn’t it prevent him from as-ising things? Wouldn’t it keep his IQ lower? Stupidity is the unknownness of consideration. His time, place, form and event would have to be pretty screwed up if he not only verbally lied to his ‘friends’ but then allowed it to be included in his legacy, his lectures, the LRH life exhibit, various future publications on him, etc.

“In other words, his lies carry through to all VIP’s, actors, artists, political figures, religious figures, children who study his legacy at delphi [a Scientology school], etc, forever.

“That is a continuous overt on a world-wide scale. How can that not affect his ability to research and locate truth? We already know about an earlier book called ‘Scientologie’, by another author.

“We just learned from Marty Rathbun that LRH had considered dropping the OT3 level all together. I speculate this is because even LRH finally cognited he had really outdone himself on that particular piece of space opera. But then, I’m not OT so no offense to anyone with a different view. I can only work with what I have to hand which unfortunately leads to much speculation.

“And ‘speculation’ seems to be rampant these days, even amongst OT’s arguing with one another in various blog comment sections as to what’s true or not.

“Paul Haggis now claims he has experienced relief from seeking a non-Scn therapist. So there may well be cogs one can experience from many forms of two-way comm. The real question is, did LRH create amazing tech or did he just get people into a modern (at the time) therapy technique, gleaned from other’s prior work?

“Hard to say what’s true…

“Hard not to judge the efficacy of the work of a potential pathological liar.

“Hard to confront the world-wide joke that LRH and Scn most definitely are in the eyes of humanity. Sounds like a generality but just Google both subjects for a few good hours and be prepared to weep. I believe the integrity of a man can be judged by how his legacy is viewed by the world at large. In LRH’s case, it’s very negative.” — Idle Org
