Mary Sue Hubbard misconception.

I was reading the cringe worthy to gather a bit of data and noticed a line there that has either been added since I was there last, or I missed it on previous visits:

"Something not generally known is that, among other things, Mary Sue helped Ron to coin the word 'Scientology'."

Erm, no, she didn't. As is usual with LRH's thieving ways, he took the word Scientology from another source. The word "Scientology" was originally coined by the philologist Alan Upward back in 1907 as a synonym for "pseudo-science". How apt :)
