Skeptic Tank!

Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L. Rice, The Skeptic Tank, 09/Sep/95 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- From news.interserv.net!news.sprintlink.net!howland.reston.ans.net!Germany.EU.net!EU.net!news.eunet.fi!anon.penet.fi Wed Jul 12 09:50:50 1995 Message-ID: <174302Z11071995@anon.penet.fi> Path: news.interserv.net!news.sprintlink.net!howland.reston.ans.net!Germany.EU.net!EU.net!news.eunet.fi!anon.penet.fi Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology From: an274865@anon.penet.fi (Andrew McPherson) X-Anonymously-To: alt.religion.scientology Organization: Anonymous forwarding service Reply-To: an274865@anon.penet.fi Date: Tue, 11 Jul 1995 17:42:22 UTC Subject: Just 100,000 scientologists Lines: 71 In a 1991 publication for staff members the IAS writes: "Therefor we set the 1991 goals as follows: "* Build the membership to 100,000 active members. "* Establish Membership Committees in each major area with the purpose of launching and completing major projects set out in HCO Bulletin 25 June 1969 Special Zone Plan. "* Hold ceremonies to sign the Pledge to Mankind in every major city to acknowledge the great strides forward that have been made since the Association was formed. "* Change the order of magnitude on the Free Membership Program by getting all new Scientologists signed up as Free Members as soon as they purchase their frst book or service and increasing this membership to 200,000 members. "* Double the size of the "War Chest" so that the future of Scientology can be guaranteed without question. "* Eradicate Interpol. Now this finally confirms it and should end the scieno rumour of 8 million plus members. Woody, stop counting BTs as full members, will you please?! Further, and this should be understood: While the scienos constantly quote a so-called public price and IAS member price for their services they will NOT permit anyone onto a major service without that person being an IAS member. Membership in the IAS is mandatory! No member = no service. If your membership has run out and you have not taken any services recently, then lack of membership (if your are a yearly member) becomes an ethics matter. If your are a lifetime meber then you constantly get pushed to achieve the next membership level. Once you are a lemon (or was it patron?) they push you for patron notorious (sorry, should read: meritorious). So maybe the rumours are true that some very wealthy people shoved millions of dollars into the organization to keep it afloat. A friend once told me that while at Flag (Clearwater, Florida) he met a wife/the wife of Adnan Kashoggi. That would be a good money source indeed. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been targetted as the next country to be taken over. They take it real easy there. Just introducing their "management" tech into university through WISE. Re: Interpol Did they eradicate Interpol? Does buying the joint count as well? Can anyone have his congressman enquire at the Washington Interpol office as to where in the U.S. the request to the Finnish police originated? Did it originate in the U.S.? Could also have been Russia or one of the other new states. The answer will probably be found with the Finnish police. They can supply the proper lead. Just needs to be traced back. Actually a simple routine once you have the right contacts. I'll try through my government contacts in a while if someone would help me by emailing me a good synopsis on all the things that transpired, including as much as available documentation (in email form). (Time, place, form, event or as we say: who, what, when, where, why.) Andrew BTW: "Old" Saint Hill had, if I recall correctly, roughly 250 staff members. And the place was crowded (wasn't real big then - the castle had not been built yet). At its peak probably around 250 to 300 students there. A good chunk of the money was generated by FSMs bringing in their friends (my guess around 30% to 40%). Sort of a different atmosphere, more adults than young people. ElRon was quite visible, as was at times his temper. Memory is fading ...... guess I audited all my "pictures" away. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- To find out more about the anon service, send mail to help@anon.penet.fi.
