I think he's fixated on the date of Dec 1 1947. Although, I'm impressed that he actually read that post.


Don't you find it funny that he picks a single point and completely ignores the rest? It's as though someone has told him to ignore certain "propaganda".

It's perplexing, but not surprising. But it is slightly humorous.

True.

It's like watching a kid run around with a box on its head, bumping into things. You know you should take the box off, but it's just too much fun to watch.

1946-1947 is when ole Ron wrote Affirmations the COS fought in court to have all the copies and documents to it turned over to them.

It was a semi-autobiographical text in which Hubbard confronts painful events in his life, from his failures in his naval career to his health and sexual problems. The document is divided into three sections titled as Course I, Course II and The Book.

It is said if Scientologists were to ever read them they would drop Scientology all together.

You know I will say that, in his defense (SpecialSauce) the exact inception date of Scientology has long been debated and contested. There are various sources many of which are legitimate, contradicting each other about the details of when the church officially began.

"I’d like to start a religion. That’s where the money is."
- L. Ron Hubbard to Lloyd Eshbach in 1949, quoted by Eshbach in OVER MY SHOULDER: REFLECTIONS ON A SCIENCE FICTION ERA. Donald M. Grant Publisher, 1983
____________________

L. Ron Hubbard established the Church of Scientology (CoS) in 1954 against the following backdrop: He had dropped out of college with failing grades. Although he would later claim a distinguished wartime naval career, Hubbard in fact never saw combat and left the US Navy petitioning the Veterans Administration for psychiatric care. Two bigamous marriages failed. He found success writing pulp/science fiction, but as he declared in the late 1940s: "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." (1)

Hubbard took up ritual magic, the occult and hypnosis, giving demonstrations of hypnosis in 1948 and writing to his literary agent about a therapy system he was working on that had tremendous promotional and sales potential. (2) Piecing together hypnotic techniques, Freudian theories, Buddhist concepts and elements of other philosophies and practices, Hubbard came up with Dianetics. He published DIANETICS: THE MODERN SCIENCE OF MENTAL HEALTH in 1950.


His children say 1947, Google says 1953, the official release of Dianetics is 1950.

This is all intentional, though. Hubbard went out of his way to make everything about his life prior to Scientology appear very obscure.

It doesn't negate my OP, though. Sorry SpecialSauce. Thanks for playing, though! Your bantering has no doubt contributed many S&Fs to my thread.

I didn't know about affirmations, it's On Wikipedia if anyone wants to read it.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was a tactic to obscure information.

Speaking of information. Something I find funny and kind of ironic is, people pay $70,000 to gain information about Scientology that Google can give you for free.

Anonymous famously hacked and disseminated the literature pertaining to the higher OT levels. That's when the public became aware of lord xenu.

I had heard that, but didn't know if there was any truth behind it. I also heard that a former member leaked a large portion of information in the 90s.

There have been leaks here and there throughout the years. Rumor has it they achieved their tax exempt status in the US by threatening to blackmail the IRS with the secrets they had uncovered from Operation Snow Flake.

You know, I would be really obliged to hear more about this in the appropriate context. Perhaps you should make a thread about it in the UFO forum? I think it may be a good read, seriously.

Meh, it's been a long day! It was a Freudian slip due to the many Snowflake threads permeating through the forums. I'm not even going to edit that, lol.

Let's see this get a conviction. Just another to add to a long list. Also, no doubt there will be deniers.

Ufo? It wasn't unidentified, it identified itself. Your reading comprehension is sorely mistaken.

I didn't call it a UFO, not that it matters. I simply suggested that a good place for your story would be the UFO forum.

You know I tried to be sympathetic to you and even offered you a fair suggestion to place your story. You're making things worse for yourself with every post.

So a triangle flying craft identified itself as Xenu?

Can't be Xenu then. Xenu is on an old DC-8 like craft. That's plane shaped, not triangle shaped.
