Scientology Beliefs about the “Creation of the Universe”Some of the information one finds on the internet about Scientology religious beliefs is frequently a mixture of misstatements, distortions of unpublished research notes and outright forgeries designed to twist and distort Scientology theology. Case in point: rumors on the internet regarding the Scientology “Creation Theory” which are completely false and forwarded in an attempt to ridicule Scientologists and denigrate their actual religious beliefs.
Most of the world’s religions express some view of the creation of the universe. Some religious traditions, such as Hinduism and Buddhism, view the universe as essentially eternal, without beginning or end in the stream of time as we perceive it. The first books of the Bible contain an account of the creation of the universe which some Christian faiths hold to be allegorical and some hold to be an expression of literal fact. Other religious traditions have other views, but each attempts to explain this ultimate question of where we came from and how it came news to be.
