A have a couple of questions about this statement

1 ) If you DON'T observe it for yourself, is it untrue ? Or should we simply ignore it on the grounds that we cannot make an informed descision ?

2 ) Given 1, why are Scientologists posting anything to the net, other than information on where to view ORIGINAL documents ? After all, how can we believe what they post here ? All we can believe is that THIS information is posted HERE, and we cannot make any judgements about the truth of its content!!!

I would appreciate some clarification, (perhaps with photocopied notorised original documentation by snail mail),
