As a true seeker and one who believes that all external influences contribute our own ideas and actions (as Mark Twain said), I search to read articles and literature that has been written by authors who study their topic thoroughly, and do not write based on emotionally charged prejudices.
That's one of the reasons I have such respect for Mark Twain, who studied Joan of Arc twelve years before writing his book.
I have searched extensively on the web for information about Scientology, and what, exactly, they believe. I have finally found an article that explains their fictional beliefs, and exposes their folly, while not entirely ridiculing them, as their system seems to help some people to live better lives.
Be forewarned though, the author isn't much more lenient in his views of Catholicism.
None-the-less, this is an excellent brief article that can give you a good understanding of the mysterious Scientologists.
