What happened when we had a scientist look at L. Ron Hubbard's 'science' of life in the womb - 2018-02-26
Our readers know that we enjoy bringing you L. Ron Hubbard in his own words from time to time in order to get a better understanding of what Scientology is really all about.
Often, it's enough to see and hear Hubbard's words on their own. But since Hubbard claimed to be an authority on science, we thought it might also help to bring in an actual, you know, scientist to look at Hubbard's claims. (And this isn't the first time. We had a lot of fun asking famous biologist PZ Myers about a particularly bizarre Hubbard book.)
Today we're looking at a very early lecture Hubbard gave in the wake of his big success publishing the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health. Hubbard put out that book on May 9, 1950, and we've gone to the effort of blogging it from cover to cover in a previous series.
