Scientologists believe there was intergalactic alien called Xenu 75 million years ago. Xenu was in charge of 76 planets and 26 stars including Earth which was then known as 'Teegeeack.' All the planets were 'over populated,' with about 178 billion people per planet. Xenu with the help of psychiatrists called billions of people for 'income tax inspections' but people instead were given injections of alcohol and glycol to capture their souls. The people were unconscious and taken on 'space plans,' which could travel 300 light years in 9 weeks
They flew to Earth and the unconscious people were put in to the bases of volcanoes. H bombs were put into the volcanoes, and were detonated. The 'thetans,' think refers to souls, of the people that were killed, blew around and captured by an 'electronic ribbon' and put in 'vacuums zones' across Earth where the hundreds of billions of thetans were taken to cinemas to watch for 36 days 'three-D, super colossal motion picture,' where thetans were given data on world religions
Some thetans went into the bodies of people that survived the volcano explosion, which are known as 'body thetans' which scientologists believe can be removed by doing certain tasks
And you don't actually learn that until you've gotten to a high level in their religion. Of course by the time you're on that level, you're ready to believe whatever they say. Though, you can get there by paying them a lot of money.
The reason info like that came out about Scientology was that some people who did get to that level posted it up on Wikipedia. Scientology tried to get the info out of the public, but they couldn't.
If you've seen that episode about it on South Park, I hear that the silly description they gave it was actually accurate. Their religion's founder got his start as a science fiction writer, came up with that story, and a religion came from it that insisted the story is real.
I read that one of the methods they used to get followers was to offer a special test that you could take online or at their center, but to get an interpretation, they need to meet you at their center. When they do, they invariably tell you that you have serious psychological issues and you need their services. There was a girl who got duped into that and ended up being kidnapped by them. When they found her body, it even had roach bites on it.
Their leader supposedly has serious personality issues, like an insane temper, according to a defector.
Here in Hawaii, their center was located just next door to our Catholic Cathedral, right next to a college, among other things. The Scientology center closed and now the Cathedral occupies the building as a parish center. Christianity dominates over paganism once again....
