Is Science catching up to Scientology?

At a recent conference lunch, there was a person at my table denigrating Scientology.  To put some truth about Scientology out there, I mentioned that the first lesson in Scientology is don’t believe anything unless it’s true for you. My lunchmate scoffed and said that wasn’t science.

Well, it is now!

Accepting something as knowledge is an entirely voluntary choice that every one of us makes at our discretion. No one can force us to believe or accept what is represented.


Here is the first lesson:

What is true for you is what you have observed yourself. And when you lose that, you have lost everything.

What is personal integrity? Personal integrity is knowing what you know. What you know is what you know and to have the courage to know and say what you have observed. And that is integrity and there is no other integrity.
