|Science of Survival: Exorcism|
|Hubbard vs. Christianity|
Hubbard claimed in Science of Survival that a few weeks of Dianetics training qualifies any intelligent man to a better and much less harmful job of exorcising demons from the insane than a practitioner who studied for twelve long years.
But Dianetics is also, to some, a strange and frightening thing. It invades and enlightens so many fields and activities that it cannot but search out and expose those who profit by ignorance and suppression and whose sole importance rests upon their ability to control other human beings. Where is the revolutionary leader, who by teachings of hate and prejudice would unseat a government, when his troops suddenly understand that the ideology he preaches is ancient and passe? Where is the society which existed to cure (but did not) some dread disease which Dianetics can nullify with ease? Where will such a society get more funds? And what of the practitioner, who studied twelve long years to become an expert in exorcising demons from the insane, when he is suddenly informed that a few weeks of study in Dianetics qualifies any intelligent man to do a much better-and much less harmful-job?
