Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 8, 2008
The Church of Scientology announced today the first time ever release of an online video presentation of Scientology Founder, L. Ron Hubbard. The ten minute on-line video presents a chronological overview of the major milestones and significant achievements of Mr. Hubbard's life.
His enduring legacy includes his presence as one of the most prolific and widely read authors of all time, with over 250 million copies of his books and recorded lectures in circulation, and as the founder of the only major religion established in the 20th century -- Scientology -- growing at an unprecedented rate. This video, containing historical footage and stills spanning three quarters of a century, much of it drawn from Mr. Hubbard's archives, can now be viewed on the Scientology Video Channel at http://www.Scientology.org and on the Official Church of Scientology Video Channel on YouTube at http://www.YouTube.com/ChurchofScientology.
While Scientology has become a household word internationally, to understand a religion one must have an understanding of its Founder. Thus the question: What kind of man could have founded the only major religion of the 20th century? L. Ron Hubbard was a man who maintained that to know life, one must live life. He lived life from the top down and the bottom up. He saw much suffering and wisdom, and worked for a quarter of a century to bridge the gap between east and west and between science and religion. L. Ron Hubbard has inspired a religious movement spanning all continents and cultures which now includes over 7,500 Churches, Mission and Groups in over 165 countries.
In an effort to meet the unprecedented public and online demand for more information on Scientology, and to answer the question, "What is Scientology?", the Church of Scientology has been engaged in a continual pro-active on-line campaign to provide accurate information to inform the general public of Scientology's beliefs and practices. In March 2008, the Scientology Video Channel launched with 82 videos, providing a comprehensive understanding of the beliefs and practices of Scientology, and the programs the Church supports, including dozens of public service announcements illustrating the social betterment programs sponsored by the Church. One month later the Church launched the Official Scientology Video Channel on YouTube.
With the premiere of this on-line video presentation of L. Ron Hubbard, the Church of Scientology continues its commitment to keep the public informed by regularly providing new material on-line.
