Xenu (play /ˈziːnuː/ zee-noo), also spelled Xemu, was, according to the founder of Scientology and science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, the dictator of the "Galactic Confederacy" who, 75 million years ago, brought billions of his people to Earth in a DC-8-like spacecraft, stacked them around volcanoes and killed them using hydrogen bombs. Official Scientology dogma holds that the essences of these many people remained, and that they form around people in modern times, causing them spiritual harm.
These events are known within Scientology as "Incident II", and the traumatic memories associated with them as The Wall of Fire or the R6 implant. The narrative of Xenu is part of Scientologist teachings about extraterrestrial civilizations and alien interventions in earthly events, collectively described as space opera by Hubbard. Hubbard detailed the story in Operating Thetan level III (OT III) in 1967, warning that the R6 "implant" (past trauma) was "calculated to kill (by pneumonia etc) anyone who attempts to solve it".
Within the Church of Scientology, the Xenu story is part of the church's secret "Advanced Technology", considered a sacred and esoteric teaching, and normally only revealed to members who have already contributed large amounts of money. The church avoids mention of Xenu in public statements and has gone to considerable effort to maintain the story's confidentiality, including legal action on the grounds of both copyright and trade secrecy. Officials of the Church of Scientology widely deny or try to hide the Xenu story. Despite this, much material on Xenu has leaked to the public via court documents, copies of Hubbard's notes, and the Internet.
In commentary on the impact of the Xenu text, academic scholars have discussed and analyzed the writings by Hubbard and their place within Scientology within the contexts of science fiction, UFO religions, gnosticism and creation myth.
Ancient Aliens is an American television series that premiered on April 20, 2010 on the History channel. Produced by Prometheus Entertainment, the program presents theories of ancient astronauts and proposes that historical texts, archaeology and legends contain evidence of past human-extraterrestrial contact. The show has been criticized for presenting disputed pseudoscience.

Wow great points you made.
Scientology if the perfect example of what direction it can go in with just a few decades.
I can just see it, four hundred years from now the new dark ages. The knew inquisitions...converting Christians to some knew twisted science fiction/fact belief via torture and death.

Just because someone is passionate about something like this subject doesn't mean they are looking for something to worship .

Think about it. What does a religion do? It gives people somthing to believe in, even if there is no proof. So in essence, you must use faith. Thats what the "alien" lobby here are all about.
People will pipe in with "believeing in alien doesnt kill people, religion does", but of course that is hogwash. Religion doesnt kill people, it is simply a tool that those in power use to make people do their bidding. If i honestly believed in my heart that by strapping a bomb to my chest and blowing up innocent at a market i would have a special place in heaven, i just might do it.
The alien folk have no proof whatsoever of their claims, and time after time UFO sighting after UFO sighting have been debunked. They are without hope and cling desperately to the dream of aliens someday saving us from ourselves.
If we are going to find salvation, it will be within. It will not come from the stars.
