Jon Atack is the author of A Piece of Blue Sky, one of the very best books on L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. He has a new edition of the book for sale, and for more than a year on Saturdays he helped us sift through the legends, myths, and contested facts about Scientology that tend to get hashed and rehashed in books, articles, and especially on the Internet. He was kind enough to send us a new post.

The axioms! Thank you, Jon, for bringing them up. We have been derelict in taking a closer look at them. We're very interested in your thoughts on Hubbard's "self-evident truths."

JON: If you want a religion, conform to people's expectations about religion. Have a cross and some triangles wrapped around a snake, and make up some fancy dress up for preferably elaborate rituals.
