What Scientology itself says about the way it’s going to change how your mind works

  Jon Atack is the author of A Piece of Blue Sky, one of the very best books on L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. For more than three years he’s been helping us sift through the legends, myths, and contested facts about Scientology that tend to get hashed and rehashed in books, articles, and […]

Fair Play: Before Leah Remini takes another whack, here’s a word from Scientology itself

  Tomorrow, Leah Remini and Mike Rinder launch season two of Scientology and the Aftermath with an episode which is going to eclipse everything they’ve done before. (Yes, we’ve seen it, and we’re going to tell you more about it tomorrow morning.) Once again, social media will be swamped with people expressing shock at […]

Bogus court documents, compliant search engines, and Scientology-style rehabs

[Per Wickstrom, illo by Chad Essley]

Yesterday The Hollywood Reporter provided a curtain-raiser for season two of Leah Remini’s A&E series with a couple of interesting articles. Seth Abramovitch wrote a new profile of Leah, and Gary Baum posted a disturbing story about how information critical of Per Wickstrom’s Narconon-style rehabs in Michigan was the […]

‘Scientology and the Aftermath’: Mike Rinder answers a few of our questions after TCA win

  With only a little more than a week before the start of season two for A&E’s Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, we sent over a few questions to Leah’s sidekick, former Scientology spokesman and Australian-born U.S. citizen Mike Rinder.

Our man in Ireland ponders Scientology’s big plans for the Emerald Isle

[Scientology’s latest acquisition in Ireland]

What is going on in Ireland? Scientology was practically finished off there, and maybe because some of us pointed that out David Miscavige suddenly started a new set of initiatives there that seem completely superfluous. We thought we’d ask our man on Ireland’s west coast, Pete Griffiths, for his thoughts […]

The Scientology lecture in which L. Ron Hubbard revealed the true name of our Earth society

  It’s our habit, from time to time, to remind readers of the source material for this thing Scientology that we like to keep an eye on.

REPORT: David Miscavige has not been to Scientology’s secretive ‘Int Base’ in four years

  Much of what we know about the highest echelons of the Church of Scientology in recent years comes from a number of former high-ranking executives who left the organization between 2004 and 2010. Those former execs — Marty Rathbun (who left the church in 2004), Marc and Claire Headley (2005), Amy Scobee (2005), […]

Marty Rathbun tries to rewrite the record on Scientology spying. But we have the dox.

[Gary Morehead’s Bearcat 3000. In the biz, this is known as “dox.”]

We truly did not want to pay any more attention to Marty Rathbun’s lame swipes at Lawrence Wright’s book Going Clear, but in his latest video (“Going Clear, Part 9”) he is making some claims that are staggeringly dishonest. We felt we had […]

Photos shot by L. Ron Hubbard in 1975 capture how the founder wanted Scientology marketed

[When is the best time to spring ‘Dianetics’ during your date at Pizza Hut?]

Over at Facebook in a private group, former Scientologist Neil Sarfati posted some very fun images from a flyer dated 1975 which feature him in a number of images. What we especially like about them is that they were photos shot […]

Scientology and kids: L. Ron Hubbard talks about small children as ancient beings

  On occasion here at the Underground Bunker we’ve brought you examples of L. Ron Hubbard’s lectures. We think it’s important to hear the source material for this thing called Scientology and not to rely only on published accounts or interviews about it.
