Scientology is hereby invited to participate in the Aftermath. contact Knowledgereports @ hushmail
Scientology keeps insisting that they are not allowed to tell their side of the story in relation to Leah Remini’s Scientology and the Aftermath show. In fact Scientology is contacted every season and invited to participate but they decline, preferring instead to tell their followers they are not invited. Recently on Twitter Remini and Rinder placed a public invitation for anyone in the upper levels of Scientology to participate. The response was a billboard saying there “is a second side to every story” and urging people to watch Scientology TV. We are raising money for a billboard publicly outing the lie and once again asking Scientology to step up and speak. Especially since this claim of not being heard was again made on Twitter
This money will cover 4 weeks of the billboard right in Clearwater FL where their Headquarters is. We are hoping that: 1. Scientologists will see the billboard and know they are being lied to.
2. Publicly reissuing the invitation for COS to come forward and participate in The Aftermath (or it’s successor show) and stop accusing people of not allowing Scientology to tell their side.
Funds raised here will pay for 4 weeks of public truth. Any excess will be donated to The Aftermath Foundation.
We are naming this campaign “SPs for Change” so that every donor will be represented and acknowledged for their help.
Thank you so much for your help in exposing the truth!
Scientology Lies SPs for a change - The Billboard Babes
Thank you to all who donated! The sign is up! We had a generous donor who provided the balance. We are extending this campaign to raise money for The Aftermath Foundation, the organization that provides a safe haven and financial assistance to any Scientologist who wants to escape but hasn’t the means.
We will continue this fundraiser until the billboard contract is over, about a month.
Thank you to everyone!!

who came up with this concept, & made this happen. Thank you to those who helped & contributed to their GoFundMe campaign to make it happen.
We put up this billboard in spite of knowing there was a chance there’d be no further Aftermath shows. We did it as an act of defiance, an act of hope. It’s a symbol that we’re not done this fight. The invitation is real & valid. So is our commitment to end COS.

When I was a Scientologist I was part of something special. My family were all Scientologists, my school was a Scientology school. My classmates and teachers were all Scientologists. My friends were Scientologists. Virtually everyone I knew were Scientologists. Being part of the special Scientologist group was definitely formative in my early views on life.
Living in a Scientology world, one of the things you learn is that wogs, a derogatory term for non-Scientologists, literally can’t handle the truth. Scientologists view this as an important reality and it’s the driving force behind the secrecy of Scientology: they literally think that their beliefs are all true and are too powerful to expose to the public willy-nilly. And this is one of the early support beams for my defensive structures: the constant lying about our beliefs.
Being a Scientologist means lying and bending the truth. It means never truly being open with those outside your sphere of Scientologists. To me, that was always a cop-out all too convenient for those with weak minds. If you’re a Scientologist, be proud!
Stop lying! Lying is so intrinsic to Scientology that they literally don’t even know they’re lying sometimes. Public Relations and not being “out-reality” for wogs is such a native practice to Scientologists that it’s all over their website, all over the specific words they choose and the lines they speak. Weirdly enough, I can detect it immediately and I see how effective it is to people who don’t have their radars up.
On Scientology’s website in the FAQ section it says
… Scientologists increase their spiritual awareness and attain an understanding of both the spiritual world and, ultimately, the Supreme Being …
… spiritual nature and that of those around him, and, hence, more aware of God.
Scientologists don’t believe in God. Not even a little bit, at all. Any Scientologist that says they believe in God is lying to you either about being a Scientologist or believing in God. There is no in between and this isn’t an exaggeration. So how do they do this with a clear head? How can these well-meaning people lie to your face and still believe they are not liars? Word games!
“God” in this case doesn’t mean the God of Abraham, or Allah, or anything else you may be thinking of when you see that word. “Supreme Being” or “God,” in this case, means the 8th dynamic, or the concept of infinity, which Lafayette Hubbard and his followers occasionally refer to as God. It’s just literally the word infinity: all things in all directions forever.
It’s not an entity. Not a personal God, not a God at all. Not the God or God himself or herself. It’s just an abstract expression of infinity. Because you could technically get away with calling that God, they do and just run with it. That’s a small example. Let’s drill down a bit on a more egregious example.
Pay very close attention during the reading of this one:
Do Scientologists Believe They are Descended From Aliens?
Absolutely not. Scientology holds no such belief. Any suggestion otherwise is as absurd as asserting that those of the Christian faith believe themselves descended from aliens because they believe there is a Heaven.
Some of the information one finds on the Internet concerning Scientology religious beliefs is a mixture of misstatements, distortions and outright lies designed to twist Scientology theology. These scurrilous statements, issued by the “Internet fringe,” are not only patently untrue, they are intentionally designed to ridicule Scientologists and denigrate their actual religious beliefs.
Pay close enough attention? Did you catch the lies here? No? OK I’ll break it down for you.
- No one thinks Scientologists believe they are descended from Aliens. They are answering one question while suggesting that they are answering another question. The quote above is actually quite true: Scientologists don’t believe they are descended from aliens. They don’t! They believe they are aliens. They believe we all are. Read the quote again. Do you see how it looks like they are denying that but in reality they’re denying something that no one is asking?
- On top of that they are pretending that their beliefs are similar to Christianity, because they know the majority of people reading their page will be Christians or familiar with and friendly with Christianity. There is almost nothing in common between Scientology and Christianity. I didn’t learn about Christianity until I was a teenager and met a Christian. And believe me when I tell you, it was completely foreign to me.
- The lies continue. Take a look at the first sentence of the second paragraph again, paying special attention to the first word: “Some of the information one finds on the Internet…” Some. Not all, not most, not a little, not a lot. Just “some,” a completely meaningless and open word. So to them, they’re telling the truth because sure, you can always find something somewhere that is false about Scientology. This entire paragraph is akin to saying something like: “Some of the information one finds on the internet about Nazis is a mixture of misstatements, distortions and outright lies designed to twist your understanding of Nazis. These scurrilous statements, issued by the “Internet fringe,” are not only patently untrue, they are intentionally designed to ridicule Nazis and denigrate their actual religious beliefs.” Well of course that’s a technically valid statement: there are lies about Nazis on the internet. But that doesn’t change the 99% of all things you read about them that are facts. The wording chosen here is specifically designed to deceive you into thinking they said something they didn’t.
If you’re a Scientologist, be proud! Stop lying. Stop deceiving. If you believe we’re all aliens, just say it! We all already know. Come out of the closet. Be proud.

If you grew up in Scientology like I did, or if you have OCD with word definitions you must have noticed that most people use words carelessly and usually incorrectly. Most of our modern English language is made up of words that don’t mean what they used to because people didn’t understand or care about the actual definition.
Now, I’m not necessarily one of those guys who has to have every semicolon in the right place and every word used exactly in the dictionary-correct way. I’m not. I do, however, tend to notice when they aren’t right, even if I don’t choose to care.
But sometimes words have very specific and very important definitions, particularly when you get into the territory of questions of legality and official documents. These are the times when the specific definitions of words are most important.
I’ve heard Scientology described as a religion by Scientologists and media outlets since I was a young child. But even as a child I knew something was different about Scientology that every other religion I had heard of. To be honest, actually there were a lot of things different about it but this one in particular is relevant to the topic of word definitions: Scientologists don’t worship anyone or anything.
Christians, depending on their branch, to one degree or another worship Jesus, God, Mother Mary and/or the Holy Trinity itself. They don’t just like or love Jesus, they worship him. Muslims don’t think Allah is great and that’s that, they worship him actively. Scientologists don’t worship anyone or anything. In fact, privately, worship itself is viewed in a similar way to how atheists might view it: a pointless exercise to an imaginary being.
I think we can all agree that whether Scientologists worship or not is probably not enough information to form a conclusion as to if it’s a real religion or not.
To do that we need to first re-discover what a religion is. Let’s take a look at some definitions.
- the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods
- a particular system of faith and worship:
“the world’s great religions”
So you can see that technically according to the Oxford Dictionary, Scientology actually isn’t a religion. How about another, less formal dictionary:
- the service and worship of God or the supernatural
- a personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices
Here we can see that the second definition is calling the word religious, which from the same dictionary means:
relating to or manifesting faithful devotion to an acknowledged ultimate reality or deity
And now you see the wide open definition Merriam-Webster gives you:
a personal set or institutionalized system of attitudes relating to or manifesting faithful devotion to an acknowledged ultimate reality or deity
Under this definition, Scientology is a religion. None of the other definitions allow for Scientology to be considered a religion because there is no worship in Scientology. In this definition Scientology certainly is a religion.
But wait, what else is a religion in this definition?
An institutionalized (or personal) system of attitudes relating to faithful devotion to an acknowledged ultimate reality.
What is faithful? By the same dictionary:
steadfast in affection or allegiance
So according to Merriam-Webster, anything that can fit this description is a religion:
A system of attitudes relating to faithful (steadfast in affection or allegiance) devotion to an acknowledged ultimate reality.
Now I’m no lawyer but I’m pretty sure any lawyer put in a position where the courts agree to this definition could argue virtually anything that is an institution with ideas about being devoted to any reality would likely fit this description.
If we accept this definition, let’s explore some of the areas of life that religion hasn’t yet been properly identified.
Science is an attitude relating to allegiance to an acknowledged ultimate reality: evidence predicts the state of things past, present and future.
Atheism is an attitude relating to allegiance to not believing in supernatural beings without sufficient evidence: that is to say, the acknowledged reality that these things likely don’t exist unless proven otherwise.
Abortion clinics are an institutionalized system comprised of people with an attitude related to the devotion to protecting and preferring the quality of life of the mother and/or fetus over the life of the fetus, dealing with life and death.
The United States Government is an institutionalized system which clearly demonstrates attitudes about devotion to freedom, liberty and even God. By the above definition, The United States Government itself is a religion.
Basically anything you can think of which has a system of important beliefs can be said to fit this description.
Without the word “worship” in the definition, the real meaning of religion is lost and nearly anything can be considered a religion.
I would argue that if we accept the widest definition available the word religion is, certainly for tax-exemption, religious protections and other legal purposes, meaningless. Oxford Dictionary has a more specific definition of religion that actually cuts out these unintended hop-ons and is the most appropriate legal definition.
Therefore I would conclude that we’re faced with two choices and paths:
Either Christianity and Islam are religions because they include actual worship in their practices and entities like Scientology aren’t because they don’t or nearly everything we can think of should be considered a religion and granted tax-exempt status and religious freedoms.

From the IRS Website:
To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.
Exempt purposes is explained elsewhere on the IRS Website:
The exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3) are charitable, religious, educational, scientific, literary, testing for public safety, fostering national or international amateur sports competition, and preventing cruelty to children or animals. The term charitable is used in its generally accepted legal sense and includes relief of the poor, the distressed, or the underprivileged; advancement of religion; advancement of education or science; erecting or maintaining public buildings, monuments, or works; lessening the burdens of government; lessening neighborhood tensions; eliminating prejudice and discrimination; defending human and civil rights secured by law; and combating community deterioration and juvenile delinquency.
As you can infer from these purposes listed, the overall idea here seems to be that those parts of society which government doesn’t reach into or doesn’t reach into enough, which are publicly beneficial need help from donations and shouldn’t be taxed. You may notice here that the overall idea does seem to be charity and doing good for humans in general.
Scientology was granted tax exempt status by the IRS in 1957 but later a branch of the church in California had its tax exemption status revoked in 1967. Scientology famously began an illegal campaign against the IRS dubbed “Snow White,” in which top Scientologists were breaking into IRS offices and stealing documents, bugging IRS offices and more.
In 1977 Snow White was stopped by the government and 11 top Scientologists including L. Ron Hubbard’s wife were sent to prison. The response from Scientology was to disassociate from those people and start a legal campaign, suing the IRS literally thousands of times from Scientology and Scientology’s front organizations until the IRS finally succumbed to the pressure and granted tax exemption for Scientology in 1993. I was at the announcement event which can be found online (I’m in the crowd somewhere).
Scientology is often described as a religion but I challenge that description as either meaningless or wrong. The lack of any system of worship may disqualify Scientology from being accurately described as a religion or religious. But let’s assume that Scientology is a religion and is exempt. Are our exemption qualifiers being met?
One thing about Scientology that I would argue makes them ineligible for tax exemption as a religion other than that they might not actually be considered a religion by definition, is that their beliefs and materials are not freely available, even to Scientologists. I would argue that it’s impossible to consider tax-exempt donations could be given with proper consent to an organization which does not freely disclose it’s core beliefs and tenants.
I am not aware of any organizations which hide their beliefs, lie about them and on top of that charge money for them, that I would consider a charitable organization.
What do you think about this?

To have a mother and a father that are Scientologists often means that all the children know, relatives and friend are highly associated to scientology. The only home you ever really known.
No money, no ID, maybe not even a driving license. And no friends outside of the church of Scientology.
Look here here is Nathan Rich born into Scientology...
Long story short, left Scientology and the bad stuff, started over in China and ..
I’ve recently been making somewhat of a name for myself as someone who has been through a lot of difficult and strange experiences. I grew up in Scientology, which I resisted from the beginning. I never gave up that resistance, even after I was sent to the infamously abusive Mace-Kingsley Ranch (Scientology L Ron Hubbard philosophy) at 8 and again at 14.
Mace-Kingsley Ranch, circa 1997
I was not allowed to communicate with my family for three years, and later was disowned, before spending seven years a homeless drug addict. Those are some slices of experiences from my life. There are many more.
In 2018, I resigned from my position as Chief Technology Officer at the largest Asia-based visual effects company, to take a break from technical management and focus on getting my story out to the world. I published a memoir and started reaching out for the first time in my life, and the response has been amazing. People seem to not only care about what happened in my life, but more importantly are often able to use my experiences to grow from in their own lives.
I’ve been asked many questions over the years, and one recently repeated question begged for a wider audience: “What’s the most valuable thing you learned from your experiences?” There are quite a few responses I’ve come up with, but the most universally true message is this one: giving up is just as good as it sounds.
I was living in a sewage tunnel in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the early 2000’s when I decided to turn my life around once and for all. It took a great effort to get off the heroin and other drugs for long enough to piece together enough sanity to move forward. Without a social security number, ID, education, birth certificate or work history, I set out to change my circumstances.

L Ron Hubbard wrote Dianetics the book that later came to be the foundation to Scientology
-Isidor Isaac Rabi, a Nobel prize winner, wrote an early rewiev to L Ron Hubbards book Dianetics in American Science
This volume probably contains more promises and less evidence per page than has any publication since the invention of printing.
So The modern Science fiction of mental health could have ended here. At the hands of the man who discovered the nuclear magnetic resonance, the foundation to Magnetic resonance imaging or MRI.

Just hour after having going public about his life in the Sea-Org in Scientology by apearing in the Leah Remini show Scientology and the aftermath did Aaron Smith-Levin got a Scinetology Stalker website smearing his name and still on top of his name when searching Aaron Smith-Levin.
Before The Aftermath Smith-Levin was into hedgefund analytics
Aaron Smith-Levin starts investigating the Scinetology hate websites a little bit more and goes a little bit deeper. Scientology growing up is not the name of Aaron Smith-Levin's youtube channel as some has written, it is growing up in scientology, just as Aaron also did.
Scientology L Ron Hubbard's greatest insporation was Commander Snake Thompson
Leah Remini Scientology and the Aftermath
What is Scinetology n.nu
Here is a website about L Ron Hubbard from Dianetics to Scientology. By the logics of this also a lot about the Scientologists, the Leah Remini show Scientology and the aftermath, the church of Scientology hate websites / stalker website and phenomenon related to LRH. N.Nu is a small fast and visible website. Try it for free 1 month and see for yourself. Scientology n.nu recommends it. Mostly because it is easy and the efforts put in comes greatly back in return.

I’m of the strong belief that the government shouldn’t be supporting organizations which obfuscate or lie about their beliefs in order to gain members or income.
I have created a new whitehouse.gov petition, to raise awareness and get the conversation going. I hope we can get some traction on this petition because even though the whitehouse petitions website has been more or less ignored by the whitehouse recently, people still pay attention and the exposure would be really nice. We need to re-think this law.
Sign the petition now (petition closed - no longer active..)
Update: I have now added a change.org petition here. Please sign both for maximum effect!
