Blog: Scientology: A Precise and Exact Science - 2017-07-04
This is what L. Ron Hubbard wrote in the introduction to Fundamentals of Thought — the last scientology book he published. (The cover of the first edition identifies him as L. Ron Hubbard, C.E., Ph. D - both self appointed credentials)
He wrote this, but because of the claims about his "science" and himself, Hubbard attributed this as an "Editors Note." But make no mistake, these words were written by L. Ron Hubbard. And they form the introduction to his ultimate summation of the subject of scientology in book form. Though this has been edited to be more palatable and defensible in the "Basic Books" edition, this is what L. Ron Hubbard thought was appropriate to introduce new people to himself and scientology. He stated the purpose of this book was to be translated into all languages to serve as the first book of scientology for new people. He included alternate words in parentheses for terms he thought might be difficult to translate as he wanted to ensure his "science" was properly understood and nothing was "lost in translation."
I have included only certain parts of the introduction, noting deletions with ellipses.
