The concept of Scientology had grown out of the financial fiasco of [[[:Category:L. Ron Hubbard|L. Ron Hubbard]]]'s Dianetics. He said that the difference between Scientology and Dianetics was that whereas the latter addressed the body, Scientology addressed the soul.

Turning Scientology into a religion made sense financially, for there were substantial tax concessions available to churches, and it made sense pragmatically because Hubbard was convinced that as a religion Scientology would be less vulnerable to attack by the enemies he was convinced were constantly trying to encircle him.
