Determining the Validity of Internet Data

(Introductory section of Part 2 – Determining the Validity of Internet Data)

If you were to conclude that I read one or two accounts, from one or two people, about something David Miscavige did (or anything along that line), and then suddenly freaked out and decided to leave the church, you would be mistaken.

This section takes up, one by one, some of the many publications I read or viewed on video, and how I determined whether I thought they were valid representations of an overall corrupt scene in the church, or whether they were just a conspiracy of liars and “bitter apostates” who were simply trying to make David Miscavige and the current church look bad, so as to deprive the world of the tech of Scientology.

Next…The Truth Rundown

    Thank you for this. I am not a Scientologist, and find the wide range of stories confusing. How Marty Rathbun and Mike Rinder could be such wicked go-to fair game men, to calmly telling the stories. How a man can be snarling and attacking (Pro-sci) in one video, and then turning on his Sci mates in the next.

    I want to believe them, but don’t have the background to analyse it fully myself.

    I look forward to your analysis of these sites.

    I feel that my analysis of these things are fully covered in this blog. Other than that, all I can say is that you have spotted the contradictions, now continue to get more information to reconcile these so that you gain certainty on what you perceive. There is so much information on the Internet that can fill in these voids. I also think you should read publications put out by the church so that you can see both sides of the story and make fully valid judgments.
