Some members of this board do not think that cowboy is telling the truth. I would like them to hear Hubbard's presentation of the OT data.
Below is a link to the infamous Hubbard lecture during which he publicly talks about Xenu, Marcab, Teedeeack and other crazy stuff.

“If anyone hasn't heard the full 90minute lecture (OT VIII class10), I recommend it, but only if you have an interest in mental disorders. A student of psychiatry could make a case study just listening to this man (who is clearly delusional) rant incomprehensibly for over an hour (and even more amazingly, a crowd of people hanging on his every? Word)”
I guess I am not alone in my assessment of Hubbard’s mental capabilities
I will get back to the Hubbard lecture in a moment, but right now I would like to explain what constitutes irrefutable evidence of a person’s mental retardation.
A psychiatrist or a clinic psychologists would tell you that a person who changes his account of certain events suffers from one or another form of mental retardation including certain types of schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, Down syndrome, etc.
Normal people tend to forget things as time goes by, which is natural. But they, certainly, do not change their stories within, say, 2 hours. Mentally retarded individuals, on the other hand, constantly change their accounts of events. This happens because the logic that governs the events completely eludes them.
Some criminals suffer from mental retardation and, because of that, they cannot stick to the same story, which causes their downfall. But a criminal in good mental health keeps repeating the same testimony, so he cannot be caught lying, unless there is either a physical evidence or a witness testimony showing that he is not telling the truth.
When I was in Sea Org, I was given an order to write down all my overts that I committed prior to becoming a Scientologist (this sort of things is routinely done in Sea Org). At that time I was loyal to late Hubbard because I wanted to continue his research in Dianetics. But I was not loyal to CoS because they had banned any further research. Being disloyal to the Church, I did not feel obligated to provide them with descriptions of real events.
I made up several stories of my “downfall” and memorized them in anticipation of a sec check. I knew how to fool the e-meter, but I also wanted to make sure that I keep repeating the same thing over and over. For some reason I was not subjected to a sec check (probably, because there was no need for an auditor to waste her precious time on something that has no relation to Scientology), but I was fully prepared for it.
In the beginning of the infamous Xenu lecture Hubbard tells the audience how to spell the word Xenu, you can hear him spelling it as “X-e-n-u”. 20 minutes later you can clearly hear him saying “Xemu” on several occasions.
The lecture is incredibly boring, but if you pay close attention to it, you can catch him changing the story of the Loyal Officers at least twice.
In one version of the story he tells the audience that the Xenu victims were killed before they were transported to the earth, while in the other version he says that their bodies were frozen, but they were alive during their flight to the earth.
These are unmistakable signs of Hubbard’s mental illness, there is no other explanation of the inconsistencies in his lecture.
I hadn't heard that tape for a few years. Hubbard really does sound completely insane in it.
Not so much because of what he saying, more because of how he is saying it.
