Former Scientologist Speaks Up

I agree with Michael Pattinson that the “OT8” material is not valid. He made a post about it today:
I just read this web page for the first time.
It is wholly inaccurate. I did OT8 in 1990, and NONE of this was part of it. Not the Jesus part, and not the whole “recalled process” part, which is, IMHO a “crock of shift”. It looks to me like these are 2 DECOY texts to confuse the public. Tory can not be blamed for posting it, but I can vouch for its inaccuracies.
The two accurate things that have been posted on the internet are;
1. Ariane Jacquier’s account of OT8.
2. The “End Phenomenon” of OT8 that Scientology’s lawyers forced out of me in a deposition “Now I know who I am not, and am interested in finding out who I am”.
This other stuff was nowhere on OT8. I think it should be removed from Tory’s web page in the interests of correctly informing the public.
It is nothing I ever talk about. I read years ago that the disputed OT8 was originally distributed but that it caused such a furor that Hubbard withdrew it immediately and replaced it with the current one. That may or may not be true. It’s anecdotal at best and since it can’t be confirmed I have never brought it up.
That some people do speak of it, I can’t help except to say that I don’t think it helps anyone to use it as an example of abuse or fraud in Scientology.
We do have audio of Hubbard saying “There was no Christ.” I see no reason to contradict that with Hubbard saying the Christ that didn’t exist was a pedophile.Explore posts in the same categories: Anonymous, New Voices
