The Church of Scientology has opened its first mission on the Mississippi Gulf Coast amid the ruins of Hurricane Katrina. The Church of Scientology was created by science fiction writer L- Ron Hubbard. In his 1950 book ``Dianetics,'' Hubbard said the mind has a subconscious level that exerts a ``hidden influence'' to make a person behave a certain way. The book also says the soul suffers from negative ``engrams'' implanted in this life and previous lives. The church sent 800 volunteer ministers to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and New Orleans area to counsel hurricane victims.
