Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard’s 105th birthday was celebrated in Nashville by Tennessee area Scientologists on March 19, 2016.
This past weekend, Scientologists from across Middle Tennessee came together at the Nashville Church of Scientology to celebrate the founder of their religion, L. Ron Hubbard. During the event, a biographical sketch of his life and legacy was shown, which featured times of discovery, with his treks to the mysterious Orient as a young man. These quests literally mapped the boundaries of human knowledge of 10,000 years.
Born March 13, 1911, L. Ron Hubbard had a varied and exciting life. An International celebration of what would have been his hundred and fifth birthday was pre-recorded in Florida and was then shown to parishioners in Tennessee. There were refreshments and even a cake contest to bring in the festivities locally.
Hubbard’s life was full of adventure. He was an accomplished pilot, a master mariner, a photographer, a prolific writer of stories for pulp fiction magazines (which funded his research into the mind and life) and a Captain in the US Navy during World War II. Hubbard’s journeys through the Far East and the Caribbean brought him face to face with many different kinds of people, fueling his drive to solve the riddles of life and enable all to achieve happiness, spiritual awareness and success in life. How he took what he learned from these adventures and arranged this knowledge into what would become Dianetics and Scientology is available on-line as an interactive biography at www.lronhubbard.org.
“We celebrate and honor the wonderful gifts L. Ron Hubbard gave mankind,” said Rev. Brian Fesler, pastor of the Nashville Church of Scientology. “Mr. Hubbard developed tools that help all kinds of people. There are so many appreciative followers, and we have a lot to celebrate.”
