One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest

In keeping with yesterday’s blog entry: cue in the “Twilight Zone” music…..

Buzz, buzz, buzz….you can hear the internet buzzing like a killer bee hive today and it is all about Tiny Tom’s …um…interesting….. video. I kept expecting that at any moment during the video his head would start spinning, he would vomit pea soup and start speaking in a deep voice….this is some creepy, bizarre sheeyat:

"When you're a Scientologist, and you drive by an accident, you know you have to do something about it, because you know you're the only one who can really help... We are the way to happiness. We can bring peace and unite cultures."—Tiny Tom

Um….ok…. double sheeyat…I sure hope that there will be more than Tiny Tom on the scene if I am in an accident….a doctor, EMT, nurse…you know…someone who ACTUALLY has some kind of MEDICAL training would be nice.

Of course, no discussion of this subject is complete without watching this:

Some Scientology tenants:

  • 75 million years ago Xenu, a dictator from a far away galaxy, collected billions of people from 76 planets and brought them to earth where he stacked them around volcanoes and blew them up with hydrogen bombs. The victims' souls, which Hubbard called thetans, were blown into the air by the blast.
  • Xenu then implanted these thetan souls with false memories. According to Scientologists, there are a few thousand clusters of these confused souls now in all of our heads.
  • Engrams are the unconscious mental images that have negative effects on present and future lives. They can only be removed through dianetic counseling called auditing using an "E-meter", a device invented by Hubbard.

  • Dianetic auditing sessions may cost as much as $1,000 per hour. E-meters can cost over $4,000 each.
  • The goal of scientologists is to audit from a stage called “preclear” to “clear”, the total cost of this is about $120,000 to $130,000. After achieving “clear” scientologists then strive to achieve the state of "Operating Thetan VIII"—total cost are estimated to be around $365,000 - $380,000
  • The first step for a Scientologist towards going “clear” is the “Purification Rundown” involving the use of saunas, exercise, vitamins, and the drinking of oils.
  • Silent birth—belief that for the benefit of the mother and the child, the birth process should be completely silent. They believe it is traumatic for babies to hear their mother cry, so they insist on a silent birth.

Here are some videos of people who left Scientology:

Makes ya' go hmmmmm.......

In keeping with the spirit of things The Aging Disco Diva is going to grab a fruity nut bar and a big steamy latte.
