Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be
considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The
Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes
the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the
questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to
those who report. - Fredric L. Rice, The Skeptic Tank, 09/Sep/95

Here are some interesting facts about the study technology developed by L.
Ron Hubbard and used by Applied Scholastics in a variety of secular
programs. Many of these are community outreach projects supported by
volunteering and funding by Scientologists. This is interesting data for
Scientologists who are not familiar with it, and for anyone that is
interested in literacy.
The following studies have been done which demonstrate the efficacy of
the study technology developed by L. Ron Hubbard.
* In New Zealand, students in a girls school showed an increase of twelve
IQ points on the Otis Lennon Mental Ability Test after completing a course
based on Mr. Hubbard's learning methods.
* College students at the East Los Angeles College in California received
twenty hours of instruction in the study technology. Tested before and
after the course in vocabulary, reading comprehension, arithmetics
reasoning, arithmetic fundamentals, language mechanics and spelling, the
students improved an equivalent of approximately one grade level in each
* Another study conducted in England showed that students shot ahead 1.29
years in their reading levels after just ten hours of study using M.r
Hubbard's study technology. Comparatively, no gain in reading levels was
found in a control group of students not instructed in study technology.
* In a separate project in Los Angeles, high-school students tested after
a forty-hour period of classroom instruction in study technology showed a
remarkable average gain of over two years per student. In a similar
project in South Africa., the average gain in reading age was two years
and three months.
*In Mexico city, the study technology was introduced into a private
school. High-school students in one class had failed 95 percent of their
materials. After application of L. Ron Hubbard's study technology, the
class passed 90 percent of the materials the following year.
The following corporations have used L. Ron Hubbard's study technology to
train their employees:
Tigre Lis Enterprises
Ohio Institute of Technology
National Cash Register
Trust Bank of South Africa
General Motors, for instance, invested millions of dollars in a computer
system no one could use. Consultants using the study technology reduced
training time (the time it took for the employee to be able to actually
apply what he had learned) for new employees to three weeks - from six to
Anyone that has used this technology will agree - it increases ability to
retain and actually utilize data, as well as decreasing the time it takes
to assimilate data. There are many conceivable applications for such a
technology, especially in today's fast paced technological world. It can
be used at any level of literacy, from someone who is completely
illiterate, to someone who has a college degree and wants to utilize study
Mr. Hubbard has again managed to spot the one area of education which has
been almost totally neglected - learning HOW to learn - and has developed
an incredibly workable technology for this area.
