Hubbard's ashes scattered - 1986-01-29
LOS ANGELES -- L. Ron Hubbard's ashes have been scattered over the Pacific Ocean, but the spirit of the reclusive founder of the Church of Scientology 'lives on' and will influence mankind for thousands of years, church officials say.
'I feel what he has accomplished in the brief span of one lifetime will have impact on every man, woman and child for the next 10,000 years,' the Rev. Ken Hoden, church president, said Tuesday. Hubbard died last week on his Central California ranch at age 74.
'In Scientology, we believe that man is a spirit and when a body dies, the spirit lives on,' Hoden said.
