The history of the fall of the church of Scientology

This is the new title for both Chinese and English versions of the blog.  Now the Chinese title is nice and short, with a little bit of originality.

I have reasons to believe that the old title prevents some Scientologists and ex-church members to click on it in search engine results.

The old Chinese title is basically the nouns Scientology, Dianetics and LRH in one sentence, plus two negative adjectives each like fraud, cult, greedy.  Later it was shortened to one negative adjective to appear less mental.  The purpose was to stand out from the cult's many other websites, and to tell Scientologists that they can't do anything about the title.

This is not a postulate, but really history.  To me the CoS has fallen since 2008, since the Tom Cruise video incident.  That was the first time I knew what Scientology really is.  I asked myself how can the cult win when it takes only a few minutes at most to upload one video with no traces?  That was even before Gawker hosted the video on their website.  I even posted other copyrighted materials on videos as a little experiment.  It took the RTC three months to take one down!

Since then, the church has been forced to use full guerrilla tactics.  There are no spokesperson to confront the media.  Scientologists were given instructions in no uncertain terms not to defend in their own way their religion on the Internet.  Curtains will be drawn when the first protestors arrive at an Org.  Names and places are withheld in press releases in Taiwan, so nobody knows where or who to send complains to.

To be a Christian, you normally belong to a church, even if only your birth was celebrated there, and your funeral will be held there.  An ex-church member means that you are no longer a Christian - same as an ex-Christian.  But Scientologists has no such luck.  An ex-church member merely means that he/she has no other church to join, though he/she may still believes in Scientology.

One reason that some Scientologists (the Writer) don't leave the criminal and greedy church is because they are afraid that the whole Bridge will be lost, along with all Hubbard tech.  To me Hubbard is evil and crazy, but I can reassure Scientologists that the Bridge will still be there.

Take Karen de la Carriere for example.  She is the highest level of auditors trained by LRH himself.  She is the ex-wife of the current President of Scientology International, Heber Jentzsch.  She alone can take you up the Bridge many times over.  There are much more people like her outside of the church than inside.  She left the church in 2010, long after LRH dropped his body.  Therefore she cannot be a squirrel and sell impure LRH tech.  She is still a firm believer of Scientology even though she accused the church of causing the death of her son.

Karen is also a friend of OT8 Helen Chen, and appeared as guest on Helen Chen Academy’s graduation celebration in Los Angeles.

An 18 year old 2nd generation Scientologist in Taiwan came out to defend her religion.  She has been happy in Scientology and she said 18 years can't be wrong.  Wrong.  Many had been in for twice that, and Karen was trained by LRH himself.  If the church is gone, her group will still be there for some time.

Below is the memorial for Alexander Jentzsch, Karen's son.  You can see all the big guns there, many can take you far up the Bridge.  Without the church, you can still have your Scientology silent birth, weddings, and funeral.  And if you drop your body some day, you may still go to the other galaxies.

Legend of the Guardians

The movie (sorry to disappoint you) gave me inspirations about "what is a cult?".

If for nothing else, kids will watch and may understand what is a cult with parental guidance.  There is the possibility that children raised in a cult may understand that the outside world is different.

A cult enslaves people, the weak.  It's not on a check list of cult features that I re-posted, hence this discussion.

You are the elite, or promised a path to be an elite, if you join.  It's OK to rule the weak, enslave them or extort huge amounts of money from them.  In order to move up the path of the elite, or keep yourself there, you will do a lot of things otherwise you will not do.

You are a slave master that money can't buy.  You regard that you are the saviour of mankind while Bill Gate is far from it.  It's OK not to talk to your family because they don't agree with you and they are weak.

The current leadership structure of a cult is a pyramid scheme to enrich people at the top - a cult is about money and power, exchangeable.

One difference between a religion and a cult is the concept of zero return, or that a cult rob Peter to pay Paul.  An established "religion" do not need to do that.

A cult sells you something addictive, for example, auditing.

Religion and cult evolve, so the concept of evolution make sense.  Evolution goes in all directions and cults are at the dead ends if they can't adapt.  Cults will have a lot of anti-society features, such as Fair Game and Keep Scientology Working.  Society will kill them like cancer.

Evolution gave us a large brain, astronomy and condoms.  You can't keep on fighting these things, for one Galileo that falls, ten will be born in his place.

Thursday 2 pm

After the first Taiwanese OT's public denunciation of the church, this is what happened to a Scientology critic's blog in Chinese.  And these are not people looking for Tom Cruise divorce news.

This is evidence that Taiwanese Scientologists are starting to observe for themselves, ignoring the church's ban on etheta information on the net.  Congratulations and well done to those who triggered it all.

On 2nd thought, after the public seen the headlines of  Tom and Scientology, they search for Scientology.

Why Thursday 2 pm?  Anybody who has been a Scientology staff will still shiver when they hear this moment every week, when they have to report their statistics.  For all current staff, inverting this chart will be your stat comes next Thursday.

Is today Thursday?  Absolutely not.  I am experimenting a column like Tony's to catch up with so many things.  I am showing staff that I can do what I like, when I like it.

Our own Freedom Medal winner came out to defend the church.  His target audience are loyal Scientologists but his article got posted in public.  This is a bad sign as the church's usual handling is not to response but to smear critics on Freedom Magazine.  He didn't smear the critics but blame bad sheep among staff.  If he were in Sea Org he would have been put into the RPF.  Now he will need a lot of sec checks to progress up the bridge.  But I doubt if that's what he really wants.  He became OT3 only in recent years.

Our own celebrity is not afraid to speak her mind as usual.  She supports the new critics, but wants to stay in the church.  Maybe that's possible, but not before a lot of expensive sec checks.
