Old Scientology Video Resurfaces


Last week were the Tom Cruise videos. But, before our little general became so high in the church, he was topped by John Travolta. Not topped like that, but it is a nice choice of word isn't it? This video has John Travolta, Anne Archer, Kirstie Alley(guess Scientology hasn't found a cure for obesity. They managed to cure all the 9/11 workers, but not obesity.), Michael Roberts and a host of other "actors" without names extolling the virtues of Scientology. Enjoy. Oh, and thanks to The Sun for the video. See, sometimes I just put an Oh, and it doesn't actually mean anything.

Yeah, I didn't really think it was Sandra Oh, but it would have been cool if it was.

It can't cure stupid either!

Okay, when I first started watching this video, I thought it was a joke. 'You can leave, you're free to do so, but it would be stupid. You could also blow your brains out'?!?!?! What the hell?

I think that people should believe what they want to believe, but at what point do we cross the line between believing, and belonging to a self-serving cult?

I'm more afraid than ever.

The following is a 1994 affadavit from a former Scientology worker. Its a whole lot to plow through, but very enlightening. The Tom Cruise stuff is at the end. (this also validates the "Tom and Nicole romping through the flowers" story)

with the way the actors were speaking, they should've said "without scientology, i wouldn't be delusional and act like a robot."

i wouldn't want to be "welcome" there.

I too thought this video was a joke at first...makes the whole "scientology club" even more frightening than before.

Aha! So maybe yesterday's kindness blind is my other favorite guess amongst those thrown into the mix--Lauren Graham? She might fit the perfect B list thing. 'Course, I didn't read EVERY post after a certain point since it got kinda bogged down there for a lil' while...
As far as the Sci's, I'm already brainwashed and delusional enough what with the gossip blogs, gossip rags, TV gossip. Oh, that and the drugs (hee hee).

I wanna see Tom and John fight it out in a chocolate pudding wrestling match for control of the Cult.

Every time I see John adn Tom I see this vision of John and Tom as two dogs. One is dominant and one is lying on the ground in a submissive position. You pick who's who.

(shudder)

Ok Here is the real bones of scientology. Thank you brendalove, read the whole document.

OT III deals with body thetans ("bts") and clustered body thetans ("clusters") . In essence, OT III deals with "the incident" which Hubbard claims to have been the most engramic incident responsible for the current state of man. According to OT III, 75 million years ago, the solution to overpopulation in a space confederacy (consisting of 26 planets) was solved.

Now, each leaf on the Sea Org symbol represents one of those planets. Each of these planets had approx. 150-200 billion citizens each. The overpopulation solution was to disembody all the spirits ("mass murder") with the use of glycol (alcohol and sugar) injected into the spinal cord causing an immediate freezing up of the body and the unconsciousness of the being (soon to become a bt or cluster) . The frozen bodies were then collected and transported to earth (called Teegach by Hubbard) in space ships resembling Boeing 707 jetliners. The bodies were piled up, as in the Nazi massacres, on the top of various mountain sites around the then earth. Inside these mountains were 17 strategically placed enormous atomic bombs -- bigger than any built this century. After the citizens who had been selected to be part of the solution were placed on the mountains, the hydrogen bombs were ignited from a remote space station (lunar moon) by the officers of Xenu who ruled the space confederacy. After the explosions the now disembodied thetans were electronically trapped and transported to areas now known as Hawaii and Las Palmas where there were pre-constructed implant stations. Then there was a long and arduous process of packaging the disembodied thetas (spirits) into clusters with ideas, morals, social values, emotions, sensations, pains and attitudes of what we now observe as human life. The clusters were then dispersed over planet earth through the medium of ice. The ice then melted and the first stage of implant command became activated. This is known as 'Survival' in Dianetics. The bts or clusters then seek a human body. When the bt or cluster occupies the body it will either begin running or operating the body or the engramic commands earlier received in the implants take place. This will occur over and over again in what is known as the life cycle -- each time resetting the implant and restarting its effect with a death or end of cycle.'

This technology can be used for tailor made psychosis, neurosis and general madness. Indeed, implant technology of this sort can be used for many purposes. Using implant technology, Hubbard teaches how you can cause someone to do whatever you want them to do, starting at the prenatal stage.

I took his comment to mean "unlike yesterday, when it DID mean something." But I agree, I can see Lauren Graham prank calling the ex. (Ummm, not like I know her, but from how she seems...I sound dumb and will shut up now.)

Kory said...

Wow, this is scary shit. It's total brainwashing! Calling you stupid and placing the thought of blowing your brains out or jumping off a bridge into your head.

This looks like a total infomercial where actors read testimonials. I was expecting them to sell me an ab cruncher next. Hey we can change your life, lose 10 lbs and get you laid.

captivagrl said...

rare avis - when a scientologist dies, are they buried? cremated? frozen? also, if you know, are they organ donors?

jax said...

" I was expecting them to sell me an ab cruncher next."

..you nailed it.

Scientologists make Amway salesman seem like girl scounts.

Why are their videos produced so poorly? You would think they would have access to make better, more convincing propaganda. It's so campy.

Replete with stupid cheesey grins.

And what are these graphs of personality traits going up and down and a 14 point advancement in IQ? 14 points? That's nothing! You can gain 14 points just reading a magazine with a crossword in it.

Those graphs could be showing a heating bill or market research for who wears cotton vs synthetics or who shops at Wal-Mart and Bloomingdales.

In short scientology = ridiculous. As usual.

can you imagine these freaks gettin' hold of your teen who just moved across the country to college and is away from family and friends for the first time?
That is what they do. They prey on those kids at every campus across the country.

Freshman Orientation in many schools actually has an Anti-Cult seminar and private security looking out for the recruiters. It is beyond frightening!

Every time I read to watch something concerning Scientology, my mind jumps to scary movie music

Doo Doo Doo Doo

jax said...

i think my first clue was Germany all but banning it.

i mean Germany..GERMANY and all its historic flaws..have banned Scientology. (no disrespect to german folk, you really turned that boat around!)

God i wish we had some forward thinking FREE thinkers in my country.

dbfreak said...

I already thought Scientology was a cult, but that video really, really freaked me out. As Lainey says, chills, chills, chills! What freaks me out even more is that I live in the Tampa Bay area, closer than I'd like to Scientology's east coast headquarters. My mother works for a doctor who has a clientele which is made up of quite a bit of Scientology members - he actively woos them as patients because they generally don't have insurance and pay cash.

Every time I see something associated with Scientology I have the same "doo doo" reaction but without any music.

Well, I think the video speaks for itself..... bwahahaha!!!!!!!!!

That, my friends, is the brain on scientology.
