    You see, that's the thing, the thing that helped me to rise above hubbard's bank.

    I mean it was only last year that I found out about Nibs, the whole story. Part of my awakening was something like "well, if hubbard said the tech can handle any case, how could his own son be disowned by him? It doesn't make sense."

    And how could all these OT8's and people on their OT levels, and folks highly trained,
    how could they leave the fold?

    Only two things: one) the tech no work or 2) DM is altering the tech

    And thus begins The Golden Age of Fantastically Failed Escapades for the cult. Also known as GAFFE.

    If she's dead, then DM's going to have homicide investigators crawling up his butt. I don't think even he would have enough money to buy them off. Even if she died of natural causes, his hiding her death would create a presumption of homicide.

    It's #1. If it the tech was true DM would have been declared when Hubbard was alive. But of course anyone who believes in Hub tech is blind to this. You can't alter tech when it didn't work in the first place.

    She can't be dead unless it happened in the last few days. Didn't Karen whatshername announce that Shelley is aliveand doesn't wish to be seen in public?

    I second the motion. It's DOOR # 1!

    No Clears.

    No OTs.

    No amazing people with better minds, greater abilities and who are actually really doing something to make a better world. NONE! None of it works (except for the window washing tech and a few isolated tidbits here and there).

    And, no matter what value various isolated bits and pieces might have (and there are some), all together they do NOT result in any effective and workable "Bridge to Total Freedom". Quite the opposite actually. It has NEVER been a path to enlightenment or spiritual development. It has ALWAYS been a PRETENSE of those things In fact, most Scientologists I ever knew were very LOW on spiritual awareness and HIGH on delusion. They sure weren't "extra-able" or "higher in awareness". They were goofy at best in their preposterous claims, assertions and "phony certainty". I mean shit, read some of the posts by people on this board who still are affiliated with it in some form. THEY are products of Scientology. Keep far away from Scientology for your own sanity and health.

    Note: DM has been adding to what was there when LRH dropped dead. He has been altering some here and there, but the primary KEY stuff that makes up the Bridge is still there just as when Hubbard was alive. Dianetics, Life Repair, Study Tech, Objectives, Grades, Clearing, OT levels, PTS/SP Tech, etc. Granted, there may be more Sec Checking and heavy ethics today, but I have little doubt that if Hubbard were alive right up until now, he would have done pretty much the same as DM (for example dealing with the Internet). He would do just as DM is doing, and just as he did when he was alive - lie, PR, attack people, declare people, try to overwhelm critics with lawsuits and noisy investigations, manipulate perceptions, deceive, and so forth. While there are some differences between Hubbard's version of Scientology and DM's, there are far more similarities than differences.

    Well that clears it up because the Scientology spokeperson, Karen Pouw NEVER lies! :whistling:

    Why wouldn't Shelly not want to be seen in public? :whistling:

    Link to e-online's article:

    The LAPD detective is named...and the spokesperson for Co$/scientology is not. Is Karin Pouw unavailable? Odd.

    The detective's name, per eonline's site, is Gus Villaneuva.

    Please note: The article mentions "Mrs. Miscavige" has an attorney. That attorney is unnamed.

    EDIT: And the Wiki page for Michele "Shelly" Miscavige has already been updated?! Here's the link - scroll all the way down:
