A BBC reporter and longtime rival of the controversial Church of Scientology said he has found and traveled to an “alien space cathedral” it built in rural New Mexico, according to the British newspaper The Daily Mail.
John Sweeney said he went to the site, allegedly known as Trementina Base, along with former Scientologist Marc Headley in the course of researching a book about the controversial religion, best-known for drawing in a number of Hollywood stars.
"Its vault houses the lectures of church founder L Ron Hubbard on gold discs locked in titanium caskets sealed with argon," the excerpt says. "The cathedral is H-bomb proof, protected by three 5,000lb stainless steel airlocks."
As Sweeney points out, it’s extremely odd that Scientology has gone to the great expense to dig a vast vault in the middle of nowhere for storing Hubbard’s writings on etched steel plates and gold compact discs inside titanium containers, and marked the place with a vast symbol carved into the desert that can only be seen from the sky.
“That’s where LRH is supposed to go, when he returns,” Gill says. Once Hubbard adopts a new body, he’s expected to make his way to one of the CST bases. “That’s where he’s supposed to be raised and be taken care of,” Gill says. “So the symbol is a way for a spirit to find its way back to where it belongs.”
Not only are CST locations closed to the public, they are also kept strictly secret from Church of Scientology members.
