Welcome to the Introduction to Scientology World Wide Web page.
This page is designed for the curious and the uninformed: those who have

Scientology and the Internet in a magazine or newspaper. Perhaps you read
Usenet, and you heard about Scientology from your favorite newsgroup.

with all the information you ever wanted to know about Scientology and its
war against the Internet.

What is Scientology?
This page is a
collection of links will give you a history of the Church of Scientology, L.

greatest Usenet flame war of all. Read the newsgroup for yourself, and
see the Church of Scientology in action, battling its critics and refusing
to answer any questions. Ask questions, read the answers, and decide

lot of unwanted trouble, and this may scare some people away. This is
exactly what the Church of Scientology wants. With this in mind, I have put
Operation Wideawake into action. Read it, and learn what you can do
to participate (safely) in the war betweem Scientology and the Internet.
