: http://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap1.html#07 ] The following works is a fair usage compilation of source material excerpts, mostly copyrighted by some entity of the Church of Scientology corporate empire or other literary sources. The content of this publication is reproduced herein as copies strictly for nonprofit educational purposes in order to satisfy public interest in further scholarship, research, critical review and investigative journalism.
Although the following collection of research material may seem extensive at first glance, DMCA Reviewers should keep in mind that the Church of Scientology goes to great lengths to boast the following statistics in regards to the teachings and related works of L. Ron Hubbard.
The top NY Times Best-selling authors write a best-selling book every 1-3 years—writing an average of 30  books tops in a lifetime. [1]
In his lifetime, L. Ron Hubbard wrote 554 fiction and nonfiction books, an average of 1 published book every month for 56 years—the equivalent of the lifetime work of 32 New York Times best-selling authors. [1]
L. Ron Hubbard has been awarded four Guinness World Records in the last three years including Most Pub-lished Works by a Single Author: 1,084 in 2006. [2]
Over 4.2 million pages of Hubbard's writings have been translated in the last 11 years alone compared to a total of 359,459 in the prior 50 years. [2]
Between the mid-1960s and early 1980s, and following from a greater geopolitical study of what most plagues this world, L. Ron Hubbard authored an extraordinary series of essays on “cultural inadequacies” of the late twentieth century. [3]
In testament to the first stands the full body of his life’s work, including some 12,000 writings and 3,000 tape-recorded lectures of Dianetics and Scientology. [4] Therefore, despite the extended length of reproduced sourced material in this compilation of excerpted documenta-tion, when compared to the overall whole body of L. Ron Hubbard’s Scientology works –
this entire series of publications is merely a small sampling
 that is well within the constraints of “fair use” as defined under Title 17 of the United States Code. [1] L.

SCIENTOLOGY RELIGIOSITY?
[ Subject Matter Subtitle ]
An Independent Research Series of Reference Publications
Project Purpose
 
The meaning of the word “religion” is entirely subjective, and strictly personalized, opinion of what it means to any given individual. Therefore, no one can define the answer to “Is Scientology a Religion?” for another person.
 
How-ever, people of various faiths still seek those answers in regards to the Scientology system of beliefs. Therefore, this research catalog documentation archive aims to expose the truth about a wide range of L. Ron Hubbard derived scriptures using a contemporary approach to world religion studies [1]. This series of publications and related works is intended to serve as a public domain archive of source materials for further research to aid those who seek out such answers for themselves. The fair usage content included spans ex-amples of the following documentation:
Propaganda the Church of Scientology promotes to the outside world for encouraging a wider acceptance of their beliefs and practices, while reinforcing their legitimacy as a New Religious Movement (NRM).
Propaganda the Church of Scientology promotes internally to their own members that slanders many other ma- jor religions and contradicts their claims of being compatible with other belief systems.
 
Additional documentation outlining the actual teachings and alternative medicine practices of the Church of Scientology that underscores why their system of beliefs is so controversial.
Academic analysis summaries from proponent, critical, and comparative sources that reflect a comprehensive look at all sides of many disputes surrounding the common of questions of Scientology’s religiosity.
Related media coverage that further examines the finer points of the “applied religious philosophy” that the Church of Scientology claims is at the heart of its campaign to “clear the planet.” With the release and ongoing maintenance of this documentation archive of educational booklets and related works, Project Chanology Anonymous activists from www.whyweprotest.net aims to provide a virtual library of reference materials for all those seeking answers to the entirely subjective questions that arise when evaluating the nature of Scientology as a religion.
 
Series Abstract
The
Scientology Religiosity?
 
Series
of research catalogs and related works is a collection of materials for support-ing further research in the vein of comparative religion studies on the subject of Scientology and the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard. These fair use publications focus on illustrating Scientology beliefs in relation to other religions, tra-ditional tenets of faith, ancient mythology, and the teachings of other major religious leaders. The materials included in each volume represent a small sampling of excerpts from the written works by L. Ron Hubbard in the form of books, essays, and lecture transcripts. Other materials range from official scriptures of the Church of Scientology in the form of policies and organizational publications, in addition to promotional materials. This documentation represents the core Scientology teachings and doctrines that is often referred to as “technology.” Another central aspect of this series of publications focuses on an assortment of privately distributed
