F0.png (VIDEO) Critical Q&A #40 January 17, 2016, Chris Shelton, Critical Thinker at Large

The weekly show where I answer questions left for me in the comments section of my Q&A videos or by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, questions I answer are:

(1) I have a question about the concept of God in Scientology. I have heard you say before in one of the lectures on your channel that Scientology doesn't have any concept of god, so day to day 'worship' for the lay Scientologist takes the form of reading LRH's materials. However, on the Scientology website, they make reference to God as the Supreme Being, the relationship to which constitutes the Eighth Dynamic. It also has an LRH quotation saying that people who have some concept of a God are morally superior people.

Obviously the concept of God is Scientology is not emphasized, and from the website, seems to be little more than a bit of PR to make Scientology look more like a mainstream religion. However, it does appear the LRH discussed it somewhat.
