The best way to respond to your question, is actually to tell you to find out for yourself. However I can point you to several books which answered my questions when I first looked into Scientology: What is Scientology? Scientology: A New Slant on Life. Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought. Scientology believes man to be basically good, not evil. It is his experiences that have led him to commit evil deeds, not his nature. Scientology believes that man advances to the degree he preserves his spiritual integrity and values, and remains honest and decent. Indeed, he deteriorates to the degree he abandons these qualities.
