Of looks and brains and verbal dexterity, Jamie DeWolf and his famous great-grandfather, L. Ron Hubbard, could be twins. But of money and religion they share little.

DeWolf, 36, is one of Scientology's harshest critics, a hero to the disbelievers who call the religion a cult. His one-man performance about Hubbard has more than a million views on YouTube.

"He started as a storyteller, just another name on dime-store pulp mags paid only a penny a page until 1949 when he said, 'You wanna know how you really get rich? You start a religion,'" DeWolf intones, his cinnamon hair glowing in the spotlight on a blackened stage in Oakland. Hubbard "wrote 'Dianetics,' transforming science fiction into fact. … Overnight, he went from pennies to a prophet, from myths to millions, until the world demanded to see his evidence.
