Scientology Ethics

Scientology's ethical system is based on reason, not divine revelation. L. Ron Hubbard defined evil or unreasonable behavior (the two terms are synonymous) as that "which brings about the destruction of individuals, groups, or inhibits the future of the race." {1}

Among Hubbard's many works is a book entitled Introduction to Scientology Ethics. An overview of the fundamentals of this work is available in the Ethics and Conditions Booklet. The Scientology catalog claims these fundamentals "provide an exact means for an individual to gradiently raise his ethics level, increase his survival potential in any area of life and help others do the same. Thus ethics technology is the key tool you need to succeed in all aspects of existence."

Scientology has no rules for diet and does not prohibit smoking or drinking. However, drinking alcohol is not allowed within 24 hours of an auditing session, which would make it impossible to benefit from the service. {2}
