THE RELIGIOUS HERITAGE OF SCIENTOLOGY


[image]
The psychologist believes in materialism. This is the principle that all is purely matter – hopes, dreams, love, inspiration – all just chemical reactions in the brain. Following from this theory, he has attempted to create a society where the body is glorified over the spirit, and where material possessions are more important than one’s spiritual well-being.

In such a society, where spiritual values are no longer given credence, man soon loses touch with both his past and his future. Religion, then, becomes an “opiate,” while the new high priests of psychiatry, handsomely supported by taxpayers, conduct worthless government studies that provide no solutions.
