The vast majority of the world’s population believes in reincarnation and only in the last few hundred years, with the rise of the physical sciences, did a strictly materialistic view begin to eclipse the spiritual. Today in Scientology, many people have certainty that they have lived lives prior to their current one. These are referred to as past lives, not as reincarnation.

Central to Scientology beliefs and tenets is a conviction that all people are endowed with the inalienable rights as set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as ratified by the United Nations in 1948. In accord with those convictions, the Church of Scientology sponsors the largest nongovernmental human rights awareness campaign on Earth, providing materials to individuals, groups and government agencies in 82 nations: United for Human Rights.

Brooke was deeply upset by Tom’s outlandish comments. Instead of holding back, she told Cruise he should “stick to fighting aliens” – a dig at both Cruise’s lead role in War of the Worlds as well as his scientology beliefs. Brooke believed Cruise had no place to comment on how mothers deal with their postpartum depression, saying he should let each individual mom decide how to handle the condition.
