Skeptic Tank!

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.

This isn't a complete search. This information may be out of date. Check with the state if it matters. Doomed: Died at some point, but I can't tell when from the record. If such an organization was started in, say, 1982, I put both a created and doomed entry for year 1982. Mergered: Two incorporations become one for a net loss of one org. Died: Any group not in good standing at this time. Suspended groups can be reinstated. However, this doesn't create a string of "creations" and "deaths". It just adds a long list to the end of a particular record.
