15. Scientology

Possibly the strangest thing about Scientology is that it was created by L. Ron Hubbard, an American science fiction writer. It is difficult to completely understand what Scientology is all about without penetrating deep into the organization, which is also not an easy feat as it could cost a few years and plenty of thousand dollars.

The Church of Scientology is classified as a corporation-owned religion although both outsiders and escaped members claim that it is a criminal enterprise that might or might not be disguised as a cult. One of the beliefs that it greatly espouses is the need to abolish psychiatry as it is believed to be evil and abusive. Instead, the Church of Scientology pushes “auditing”, a process by which negative emotions are resolved by means of recall. “Auditing” aides are e-meters and supplements that were found to be non-government approved. The Scientology Church has been involved in numerous controversies including reports of fraud, espionage, and brainwashing. Scientology leader L. Ron Hubbard took his own life¬†while hiding from the authorities in relation to ongoing investigations.
