Blasphemy is a novel by Douglas Preston that was released on January 8, 2008.
A group of a dozen scientists, handpicked by Nobel Prize winning Gregory North Hazelius are sent to work on the project, and what they discover must be hidden from the world at all costs. Meanwhile, an ex-CIA agent named Wyman Ford attempts to familiarize himself with them and learn their secret.
Hazelius creates a new religion by fooling the world with a government funded project and Ford is sent as a double agent to figure out Hazelius' plans. Comparisons are made between Hazelius and Hubbard in regards to Scientology.
