Gratulerer med dagen, L. Ron Hubbard!


I 1911 bestemte en thetan seg for å ta bolig i en kjøttkropp fra Nebraska: Lafayette Ronald Hubbard var født! 74 år senere forlot thetanen kjøttkroppen — frivillig, må vite.

John Travolta and his ancient galactic friends celebrate Scientology’s holiest day of year

Today is the holiest day of the Scientology year, when the party-happy organization celebrates March 13, 1911, the date L.

Dare any being contemplate the true nature of existence except for Ron?

Last night, the annual Birthday Event was held in Clearwater, Florida, and for several days Scientologists like John Travolta have been arriving, as this photo from a couple of days ago attests. On Sundays, Rod Keller gives us his weekly Scientology Social Media Review, and he has another fine collection for us again. Rod goes way back, having kept a meticulous eye on the church since 1992. He’s well known for his indispensable “ARS Week in Review,” which ran for nine years when ARS — the Usenet newsgroup alt.religion.scientology — was the most important daily source for Scientology news. More recently, Rod has made a specialty of hunting down the odd and wonderful things Scientologists post to social media, and this is what he found for us this week…

We’ll start with just a few photos that capture the scene last night in Clearwater…
