Geir Isene: Calling BS on Hubbard’s “The role of Earth”


* * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

For anyone outside of Scientology this will sound pretty crazy. For Scientologists, this is gospel, this is real, this is the truth. Here’s Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard from the lecture “The role of Earth“:

The space stations exist out here in the solar system. They use the asteroids. It’s a very peculiar system. This solar system has a planet which is broken up, the asteroid belt. It gives a low-gravity platform for takeoff and so on, and that broken planet is of considerable interest as a space station, that is to say a galactic jump.

Now, there aren’t any planets up at this end of the galaxy which form a good galactic entering spot for incoming transport and other ships. But this beautiful, broken-up planet here with a light-gravity sun and so on, makes a very ideal spot.

And as a result, this area of the solar system got into prominence. It got into a little bit of prominence, and it’s slightly a bone of contention.

And there was – the Fourth Invader Force was here. The Fifth Invader Force came in to use this area, and the name of this solar system is Space Station 33. They started to use this area without suspecting that the Fourth Invader Force had been there for God knows how many skillion years, had been sitting down, and they have their installations up on Mars, and they have a tremendous, screened operation.


This isn’t from one of his sci-fi novels. This is part of Scientology proper. Hubbard is serious about this. He is also dead wrong. Scientologists would normally swallow everything Hubbard says without question (questioning anything he says will get a Scientologist in trouble with the Church). And who could blame them? Hubbard is known to present theories as fact – theories that cannot be disproven, and as such one may as well go ahead and believe them.

But this one is hereby blown to bits. By the magazine, “Universe Today” in an article titled, “Why isn’t the asteroid belt a planet?“. And I quote:

OK, I got this: The reason there isn’t very much total volume of rocks is the 4th Invaders were mining them and took them away, and the reason there are different kinds of rocks is the 5th Invaders dumped rocks there from other places.

Ye of little faith!

To begin with, there actually isn’t that much stuff in the asteroid belt. If you were to take the entire asteroid belt and form it into a single mass, it would only be about 4% of the mass of our Moon. Assuming a similar density, it would be smaller than Pluto’s moon Charon.
There’s a popular idea that perhaps there was a planet between Mars and Jupiter that exploded, or even collided with another planet. What if most of the debris was thrown out of the solar system, and the asteroid belt is what remains?
We know this isn’t the case for a few of reasons. First, any explosion or collision wouldn’t be powerful enough to throw material out of the Solar System. So if it were a former planet we’d actually see more debris.
Second, if all the asteroid belt bits came from a single planetary body, they would all be chemically similar. The chemical composition of Earth, Mars, Venus, etc are all unique because they formed in different regions of the solar system. Likewise, different asteroids have different chemical compositions, which means they must have formed in different regions of the asteroid belt.


Haven't you jokers ever played Space Invaders? It's just like Asteroids where you have to shoot the rocks, too, when they appear. After the 4th and 5th set there ain't many rocks left. Sheesh!!

Oh! Oh! Hubbard was wrong!

Come on Geir: what's the point of spending time on this?


Oh there is a very good point and that is that [STRIKE]hubbard's [/STRIKE]the Old Quack's insane, completely fabricated BS space opera stories should be denounced and laid bare repeatedly. This is vital to blast scio into oblivion.

Members on this board have reported 'gains' when auditing OT III, a verifiable false 'incident' from the Old Quack's space opera fiction. It is important to clearly inform lurkers that these anecdotal experiences are delusions.

I miss Gadfly and TAJ...



And Smilla and Sindy for their insightful, fun and really hilarious contributions.

And there are other marvelous posters who aren't active at the moment. Wasn't there some chick once that posted on ESMB named "Emma" or something? She seemed cool and also had a badass Avatar too!

Ahhhhh, flashback...early 80s, a little dive in Novato, tabletop Space Invaders ll, coke and Irish coffees with brandy backs, "....umm where am I? What time is it? What's your name again". Cue Cher: "If I could turn back ti-ime....."

Hell, I'd do it all over again. Thank you for allowing me my moment of foolish Behavior
