This article is from the Scientology and Dianetics FAQ, by firstname.lastname@example.org (Scientology Information Server) with numerous contributions by others.
Maybe. Read this FAQ first. Also, read the numerous other FAQs available,
such as the Scientology Catechism FAQ and the Codes and Creeds FAQ. In
addition, you may want to get the book _What is Scientology?_ (available
in most public libraries and bookstores in the USA and Canada, as well as
at FTP.PCNET.COM /users/brianw/wis) in order to understand the
subjects of Dianetics and Scientology and its organizations in more detail.
It is also recommended that you pick up a book either by or based on
the works of L. Ron Hubbard. One such book, _Scientology: A New Slant on
Life_ is now available in ASCII form via anonymous FTP from the address
above, in the dreictory .../lrh_essays.
