Tom Cruise will save the world from aliens — not on the big screen but in real life.

Cruise would later come to believe that in the hierarchy of Scientology, he was No. 3, behind only the founder, the late L. Ron Hubbard (known as LRH) and No. 2 David Miscavige, who goes by COB, for Chairman of the Board of the Religious Technology Center.

The entire article is fascinating..and disturbing. How could millions of people fall for the rantings of a con man in the belief that they can become the equivalent of God? /sarc

Cruise isn’t exactly at the top of the IQ chain.

Nor in the middle.

Do you get the trend here?

It’s pretty clear by now that Tom Cruise is an alien. The only question is what planet?

“Tom Cruise will save the world from aliens — not on the big screen but in real life.”

I honestly thought that saving the world from aliens was Cruise’s day job.

For his part, Cruise believes his true aim in life is to convert all nonbelievers into the church, which, according to Scientology, will result in Earth’s salvation.

Might I suggest a bullhorn and one-way ticket to Mecca?

Look at another scientologist, Kirstie Ally. She achieved the level of OT, very high up in the ranks which meant she has control over her environment. Well if that’s so, why did she blow up to 200+lbs and the only work she could find was to shill for some weight loss program?

Burned in my mind is this memory of Tom Cruise. To paint the picture, its the evening of the Lady Diana crash. The news is so fresh, its not clear that Diana is dead yet. Cruise takes it upon himself to call in to CNN....and to a great extent - its all about him (he starts at 1:44)

Strictly based upon what I've read, Scientology would appear to possess certain aspects of a mafia, with every member having skeletons in the closet. This means they're controllable. Are there any poor Scientologists?

I'd suspect it's regarded more as an obligation to get ahead and therefore not taken seriously by most, like joining any number of lodges with hokey initiations and rituals.

Then, there are probably the true believers. Tom Cruise was unusually close to the top guy, according to some written accounts. He no doubt got this impression from him, if true.

The world rolled out the red carpet for him, for decades. It doesn't anymore. Depending upon Cruise's level of stability, that could be taken to “mean” any number of things.

Per Scientology, we are all born with aliens inside us. Occassionally they bubble to the surface and an alien war destroys the planet.

Chosen ones like Cruise vanquish their inner alien, and are ‘here to help’ the rest of us do the same.

I imagine scientologists buy alot of junk from late night infomercials, as they seem to be a weee bit on the gullible side.

I wish I had known about this inner alien thing a long time ago. It’s nice to know that I wasn’t responsible for all the mistakes I’ve made and things I did wrong. It was the inner alien.

He didn’t do squat to fight the martians. He spent the whole movie running from them.

He did however beat Tim Robbins to death with a shovel so he does get points for that.

He is as crazy as a toilet rat.

If he is number 3 it shows what a dipstick cult Scientology is.

You have to be a few bricks short of a load to belong to this crazed cult.

However it is one step above being a Muslim.

Tom Cruise spent his formative years in Hollywood vulnerable to those who preyed on adolescent males. That might explain a lot of his problems.

Yes. Lots.

Normal churches only ask for at most a 10% tithe.

Scientology wants it all, or as close as they can get.

And here I thought he spends his time packing fudge...a fudgepacker (as per South Park).

Anyway, a thumbnail biography of the late L. Ron Hubbard:

Apparently you haven’t read enough. Scientology is one down right scary, murdering cult that sucks people in and destroys their lives. It is NOTHING like joining a lodge.

Your ignorance allows you to minimize the actual danger that this group poses

What’s funny is that I read a lot of SF, and I’ve read more that a few books that take a large dig at Hubbard. Greg Bear’s “Heads” deals with a cult who tried to set up a colony on IO (that was quickly snuffed by a sulfer volcano, lol) and Larry Niven deals with a SF author who was sent to Hell for inventing his own religion in Niven’s adaptation of The Inferno.

I found the web page on Google by simply typing in "rotten hubbard." The exact search terms also works.

Love that movie, it is a real treat. Paranoid Edie Murphy and his dufus brother along with Steve Martin the "director"...

"Thisss is AWESSOME man!" (said with big grin from Edie Murphy with braces on as he looks directly into the camera which is a big no, no).

"It was CHUBBY RAIN!"

There are plenty of articles and lawsuits and books out there about Scientology. They have been around since the 1970s ( the information).

My comments were entirely civil, factual, and on topic.
