A new, controversial religion has appeared in the US: Scientology.
A new website has emerged calling for its followers to “be the people of the future” and encouraging its followers, especially those in the middle of the country, to get involved.
Scientology, which has its headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, and has branches in California, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington, was founded in 1954 by L. Ron Hubbard, the science fiction writer.
It is one of the world’s largest religions, with a membership of more than 60 million people worldwide, according to its website.
The new website, Dianetics.com, was launched last week.
“Dianetics.org will be an exciting platform for the new generation of Scientologists who are ready to take the next step in their journey,” wrote the founders.
“Our mission is to educate, inspire, and guide you on the path to becoming a Scientologist.”
The website is a tool for Scientologists, who are encouraged to “connect with others and help each other find the path towards achieving true enlightenment,” according to the website.
It says that its mission is “to change lives in the universe.”
Dianetic.org’s founders are from Clearwater.
They are the creators of a new religion called Dianetics, which is described on the website as “the next step for the world of the Scientologists.”
The website includes videos of Scientologist “saves” as well as quotes from Hubbard and other influential figures.
It claims that “more than 80 percent of all people in the world have been through some sort of spiritual experience” and that “Scientology is the most powerful religion in the history of the universe” and is “the ultimate solution to our problems and challenges.”
It also says that “one can reach enlightenment without believing anything.”
Scientologists are required to go through a lengthy “study program” before becoming Scientologists and “many will be called upon to participate in this program, including many who will not be able to believe in Scientology,” according the website, which was launched by an individual known as “Dianosophy.”
According to the Dianetics website, the program “allows you to experience an altered state of consciousness called the ‘transcendental state’ that is not based on physical reality but rather a spiritual experience.”
The course is not required for everyone who wants to become a Scientologists.
Org says that the purpose of the program is to “reach the highest levels of consciousness,” and it claims that the “Transcendental Meditation” course is a “great way to learn about spiritual practices that can lead to profound changes in your life.”
It says the course “provides a path to true enlightenment that is different from any other religion.”
There is no specific time frame on when Dianetics would be available.
However, the website says that Dianetics will be available “as soon as possible” and says that members can sign up for the program on its website at DianeticsTraining.com.
