Scientology? New Fad or All Bad?

So the other day I was watching the new TV series "No Ordinary Family" a show about a family who endures a plane crash and gains super powers from the chemical filled water they fall in. It's pretty cool the first episode was Tuesday night at 8:00. If you're into to any sci-fi or superhero stuff check it out, it's really cool. They also sneak in a lot of good morals, and for once in a TV show the husband actually seems to appreciate his wife and doesn't make her seem annoying, unlike other shows like "According to Jim". That has always bothered me, most comedies have the family idea wrong.

Anyways, I'm watching this show and then a commercial comes on, it's all nice and friendly, the people on it are clean cut and successful, and then at the end it gives a link to Scientology.org. I was sort of surprised at this. Now I don't know much about this religion but we studied it a little bit in my religions class last year.

Creation of the Universe?

According to an undercover article in The Independent, Hubbard stated around 1940 that “writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion.”

Their equivalent to a soul is called a “thetan,” but beyond that is actually a “disembodied soul of alien beings that existed 75 million years ago.” Stay with me here. Especially if you are into Sci-Fi.

Xenu, an intergalactic ruler, was about to be removed from power, and he wasn’t having any of it. Instead, he got rid of the population that was planning to take him out by paralyzing and taking them to Earth (good old Teegeeack at the time). There, he loaded them into volcanoes, destroying them with hydrogen bombs.

Bodies gone, he gathered the thetans – remember, those are the souls – and implanted misleading data, such as all religions, into their memories.

The thetans began to cluster together and inhabit bodies of aliens that survived the blast (how they survived a hydrogen bomb, one can only guess). Voila! You have the predecessors to modern humans, and these thetans continue to move from body to body and life to life accumulating more misleading data along the way.

Only with auditing can you remove this data, and set your thetan free!

  2. This is amazing. I'm in a state of awed amusement. My Thetan hates you for mocking his past life though :(

  3. Like I said before... There's more Jedi Knights then Scientologists in Canada. At least according to the 2003 census anyway.

  4. That's a weird and creepy theory. Although it's one of the more amusing ideas on how the human race began. Also, apparently somebody knows that inventing a religion is a good way to extort money from people.
