Got a question for anyone up on Eagle Scouts. Does anyone know if
L. Ron Hubbard is an Eagle Scout?
For those who don't know who he is, let me explain. Hubbard was a somewhat
popular (in his time) science-fiction writer who wrote a book called
_Dianetics_. From this book he founded his own religion, the Church of
Scientology. This is a somewhat infamous 'religion' that is banned from
several countries (for good reason). One think Hubbard is imfamous for is
exagurating his 'accomplishments'. I had flipped thru a recent reprint of
one of his sf books (the Church has been reprinting them recently since his
death), and the claim was made that he was the 'youngest Eagel Scout at the
age of 13'. Since it was stated he was born in 1911, that means he 'earned'
is around 1924. I was wondering if he really did earn it, or if this is
yet another exageration of his.
Any info on this?
