Ron Hubbard in the early 1950s, has made headlines in recent years for its popularity among celebrities—and for a vast amount of evidence suggesting it abuses and financial defrauds its members. In 2008, the American Religious Identification Survey found that scientology had only 25,000 adherents worldwide.
