The media's fascination with Scientology is reminscent of the "rubber neck" mentality associated with a fatal accident on the freeway: no one wants to look for the longest time, but suddenly all the awful details are right there in front of you and you can't stop looking.  Space aliens, E-meters, strange military-like installations called Sea Org, wife try-outs for Tom Cruise...it's a bizarre reality for thousands of people and it's taken root in the very visible and very rich culture of Hollywood.  "In his introductory book Scientology: A New Slant on Life," L. Ron Hubbard, the Founder of the religion, writes:  'Scientology is the science of knowing how to know answers.'

Scientology beliefs hold that Man is basically good and that his spiritual salvation depends upon himself, his relationships with his fellows and his attainment of brotherhood with the universe."  (scientology.org)

Tonight, Dr. Walter Martin examines the cosmic and some believe, kooky, theology of Scientology, in the light of biblical truth.
