Long time critic.
The Church of Scientology has actually taken German publishers to court for printing this story. Stern won (see below).
Hubbard did not know the first thing about science. Chapter one of Dianetics is total proof of that, to a real scientist. (Nor is that "equation" actually an equation - it just looks like one.) His science fiction has terrible lapses of knowledge and logic. He did study to be a mechanical engineer, but flunked out half way through. He got 'F' in Nuclear Physics.
My major computer science interests are computer architecture, operating systems, compilers, tools, and technology forecasting. As you can guess from my publications, I've been paid to do all of these. I'm currently based in Silicon Valley.
I have been writing for years, so this archive now has over 250 web pages and over 100 images.
