Auditor Raises Girl From the Dead says Hubbard.

The following will NOT be found in the third chpater of John.

Now a certain man was sick, named Preclear, of Los Angeles, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (It was that Mary which anointed the red-haired Lord with gin, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Preclear was sick.) Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, “Lord Hubbard, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. When LRH heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of auditing, that the Greatest Thetan might be glorified thereby.”

Now Hubbard loved Martha, and her sister and Preclear almost as much as he did money.  Almost.

When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. Then after that saith he to his disciples, “Let us go into Orange County again.” His disciples say unto him, “Master, the wogs of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?” Hubbard answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.  Fear thee not then, we can always use the night depository; but let us hope for cash, not checks.’

These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, “Our friend Preclear sleepeth; but I go, that I may regge him out of sleep.”  But his followers did not understand LRH, then said Hubbard unto them plainly, “Preclear is dead and the dead spend little on courses.  Worse yet Preclear forgot to sign his last check!!”

Then said Thomas, the Ethics Officer,unto his fellow disciples,  “you had better hope to hell that he raises this dude of you won’t see any pay for a month.”

Then when Hubbard came, he found that Preclear had lain in the grave four days already. Now the nearest bank was about fifteen furlongs off: but that was of little use unless Preclear could sign the check. And many of the wogs came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Hubbard was coming, went and hid the silverware: but Mary sat still in the house; she had already buried her valuables in the garden in back. 

LRH said unto her, “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live again in the whole time track: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believeth thou this? Then sign up for auditing”

Then they came to the grave of Preclear and Hubbard said, “Remove the stone, but don’t scratch it; we might be able to get something for it at the flea market.” His disciples then opened the grave and hooked the meter up to Preclear’s dead hands.

And Hubbard lifted up his eyes to read from the check sheet and audited him while his followers chanted “sign the check, sign the bloody check.”

At last Preclear burst from his grave throwing his grave clothes about and espying Hubbard he sayeth: “Verily thou art the greatest scoundrel that ever existed.  Thy greed hath even overwhelmed death itself.  But it avails thee naught; my checking account is overdrawn.”

On a more serious note Hubbard did report that auditing has been successful in raising the dead.

Checksheet 1968, “Dissemination of Material” p.75
“A child had died, was dead, had been pronounced dead by a doctor, and the auditor, by calling the thetan back and ordering him to take over the body again brought the child to life.”

How well did this work?  About is well as he did with curing cancer or myopia.  How can people fall for this crap?  I have no idea but Hubbard was always good at finding suckers.

Why Do OTs Wear Glasses?? Why do Clears Wear Glasses? Why do Staff Wear Glasses??


Before Xenu and Operating Thetans, usually referred to as OTs, arrived on the Scientology scene the object was to become, “CLEAR.”  People who had achieved this level were no longer slaves to their reactive minds and thus were fully able to receive the full benefits of auditing.  in Dianetic Auditor’s Bulletin vol. 2 no. 7 January 1952 “An afternoon with Ron”  “You are only three or four hours from taking your glasses off for keeps.” 

The ability to cure myopia was a promise made even earlier than that.  In his classic work, “Dianetics,” Hubbard stated on page 72, “arthritis vanishes, myopia gets better, heart illness decreases, asthma disappears, stomachs function properly and the whole catalogue of illnesses goes away and stays away.”

But if you look at the pictures of the savants at St. Hill back in the 60’s you will see any number of them wearing glasses.  No doubt they were victivms of bad auditing, or taking the wrong course which is the usual dodge that Scientologt gives when confronted by such shortcomings.  

Such excuses wore thin after the release of the OT levels and the God-like power now available to Scientologists.  These mighty being with their elevated physical powers and lofty intellectual attainments have achieved a level of consciousness that the rest of us can only dream about.  Much has been written, in this blog and hundreds of others, about these powerful beings.  And their apparent scarcity since Scientology has never shown any signs of having members who are either super men or super women.  The fact has been remarked on that even ordinary abilities sometimes seem to be in short supply within Scientology.

But even if an OT cannot jump buildings in a single bound they should be able to do a trival thing like improve their eyes. This brings us back to the original question.

Why do OTs wear glasses?

Not only do they wear glasses but they do so openly.  They make no attempt to hide this mild infirmity.  One would think that they would be ashamed at this outward negation of Ron’s teachings and all the Scientology courses that they took  Scientology; in complete disregard of the high estate of OTs uses pictures of OTs wearing spectacles in their promotional ads!!!

This has not gone unnoticed among some Scientologist, now former Scientologists.  Martin Hunt, former member and case supervisor, states in his story of his time in the cult that: I began to see that the organization did not live up to its many promises of improvement of people; I myself was not improved, and neither was anyone else I saw in the organization. I asked Scientology’s elite, operating thetans, to show to me some of the powers they claimed to have, and they failed miserably at this small task. Most “OTs”, as they are called, were elderly, sick, feeble, dying of cancer, wore thick glasses, and were unimpressive to me, mentally, physically, and spiritually.  His story can be found on this link:

Next time you meet a Scientologist ask him why OTs wear glasses?

Ex-Scientologist Story #416, “Hubbard was an evil, scheming, drug-addicted, lying con man.”

The following story is from a story by Tony Ortega dated 1/1/13 and published in The Underground Bunker.

Another Indie Goes All the Way: Simi Valley Ditches Scientology For Good

Simi Valley sent us a remarkable e-mail a couple of weeks ago. She wanted us to know that she’s no longer an “independent Scientologist” — she’s out all the way.

“It was a year ago that Debbie Cook sent out her e-mail and I finally woke up. But now a year later I’ve really woken up all the way,” she said in a phone conversation we had a few days ago.

We thought we’d start off 2013 by writing about Simi’s journey, which reflects a trend we’ve been watching for the last couple of years.

As much as the growth of a breakaway “independent Scientology” movement has been a huge part of the crisis gripping the Church of Scientology, we’ve noticed a tendency for some ex-church members to spend only a short time as “indies” before they ditch Scientology altogether.

“On January 1, 2012 I was off the Miscavige Kool-aid. But now, a year later, I’m off the Hubbard Kool-aid,” Simi told us.

First, some background: In 1978, Simi joined the church in New York, then moved to LA, where she found that her first name had people remarking that it was like the Southern California town, Simi Valley. So she changed her own name legally to match the town. Meanwhile, she was getting serious about her career in the church.

“I did some auditor training and got up to Solo NOTs on the auditing side of the Bridge,” she tells us, adding that she also spent about a year and a half in the Sea Org. But for the last ten years of her career in the church, she was trying to minimize her involvement and “quietly fade away,” she says.

“I was like a lot of people who are mortified at the thought of officially leaving and then being declared,” she says. (Expressing doubts or criticizing the church can get you “declared a suppressive person,” which is Scientology’s version of excommunication.)

Simi took us through her stages of disillusionment with the church. In 2002, she says, she started to have grave doubts about the organization she’d been a part of for more than 20 years. And she knew there was information about Scientology on the Internet that she wanted to read.

“Every time I would try to read online, I would get so physically ill that I couldn’t go through with it…I knew that Tory Christman, who was my friend inside, was now out and very critical of the church. I very much wanted to know what she was saying, but I couldn’t bring myself to look,” she says.

By 2009, she says, the big push for selling “The Basics” had her convinced she needed to leave the church. But still, she was unsure how to do it. (In 2007, church leader David Miscavige republished L. Ron Hubbard’s essential Scientology texts, saying that “transcription errors” had been found and cleared up. All Scientologists were pressured to purchase multiple sets of the books and lectures, at up to $3,000 a set.)

“On New Year’s Day 2012, I read Debbie Cook’s e-mail, which turned out to be my big wake-up call. I immediately got online and read all the shit about the Church of Scientology, and for the first time I was able to do it without feeling ill,” she says.

Debbie Cook is a legendary former executive who had run Scientology’s spiritual mecca in Clearwater, Florida, for 17 years. In 2007 she left the employment of the church and moved to Texas. Then, suddenly, a year ago an e-mail she wrote ripping apart the leadership of David Miscavige was sent out to thousands of church members. In the e-mail, Cook criticized Miscavige’s initiatives using the words of founder L. Ron Hubbard. It was a devastating indictment, written in the arcane language of the church, and it made many Scientologists realize that they were not alone in their doubts.

Simi says one of the first things she realized after reading Cook’s e-mail was that she would need to move away from Los Angeles, where she was around so many other Scientologists she knew. And even a year ago, she says, she knew that not all of the church’s problems were solely the product of Miscavige’s leadership. Hubbard, after all, had been Source for policies that Miscavige was still pushing.

But for now, she was ready to come out as an “independent,” and she wrote up her declaration for Marty Rathbun’s blog which he published on July 29.

“I am now definitely an SP, and it feels damn good,” she says.

Since Rathbun started his blog in 2009, his site has served as the launching pad for many new “independents” declaring their departure from the official church. In general, they express deep dissatisfaction for the way Miscavige is running things, but make it clear that they still adhere to the ideas of Hubbard. They tend to wax nostalgic for the church of the 1970s, when things, they say, were more fun and less about high pressure fundraising.

“I sort of tentatively allowed myself to be labeled an indie while I continued to read and figure things out,” Simi says. “But I still had nagging doubts.”

She says she posted a lot of comments at Marty’s blog as well as here. “I still preferred to use nicknames instead of posting under my real name,” she says.

By November, she says she was ready to “fully confront” the truth about Hubbard.

“Hubbard was an evil, scheming, drug-addicted, lying con man. He wanted to rule the world, and hoped to also make a pile of money doing so. He cobbled together this ‘religion’ as his vehicle for ultimate world domination,” she says.

If that sounds definitive — she certainly doesn’t sound like any kind of Scientologist now — Simi still talks about how she finds some value in parts of Hubbard’s “admin tech” and his study materials.

She also talks about a “light” and “dark” side to Scientology. And we tell her, as long as she talks like that, she still does sound like something of an indie.

“I don’t care how people label me. In my mind I’m out,” she answers.

There’s no doubt she’s certainly gone through a lot in only a year. And like others who have left recently, she seems anxious to get going on a new life.

We explained to her that we’ve seen the same thing happen to quite a few other people who left the church in recent years. After announcing that they were “independent Scientologists,” within several months they were dropping any connection to auditing or Hubbard altogether.

We wondered if the indie movement was in some ways a sort of halfway house for some former church members, an intermediate step. And once out of the high-pressure environment of the church, where Scientologists are constantly hit up for donations and encouraged to spy on their fellow members (even family), it was then natural that they would gradually give up interest in Scientology altogether. Simi said she agreed that her own experience suggested that was the case.

“I have better things to do now, things that I didn’t give enough attention to in the last couple of decades,” she says.

“I feel like I’m finally off the Kool-aid for real.”
