The spoken and written words from Mr. Hubbard form the
scriptures of Scientology. It is a core belief of the religion and
all Scientologists that if Mr. Hubbard’s technologies are applied
precisely and are not altered in any way, conditions will improve
for man and spiritual freedom and happiness will be achieved
for all. It is for this reason that no one in any Scientology church,
mission or group will interpret or give their opinions about any of
the materials of Dianetics and Scientology. To do so would result
in alterations of Mr. Hubbard’s writings which would, in turn,
inhibit a person’s progress toward full spiritual freedom.
Earlier, Mr. Hubbard personally supervised the practice of
the religion and wore the hat of keeping Scientology working.
To prevent misuse and misrepresentation of his writings, Mr.
Hubbard also registered as trademarks many of the words
and symbols used within the religion, such as “Dianetics” and
“Scientology.” These trademarks prevented anyone from
delivering alterations of Mr. Hubbard’s technologies, while
at the same time claiming they were delivering standard
Dianetics or Scientology.
