TECH PRESERVATION COSTS
The church had to provide information to the IRS of the 5
highest paid service providers between 1989-91. From this list
from the 1023 forms, below is how much the church spent on
building nuclear bomb proof vaults to store Hubbard's writings:
So, in 3 years the church spent at *least* almost $36 million
dollars to preserve Hubbard tech in case of some calamity. This
brings up at least 2 points;
1) the church is predicting some future nuclear or other type
2) the church is predicting that Scientology teachings may die
out and must be stored somewhere so future generations can dig
them up and start over again.
These are the only 2 reasons I can come up with for the above
expenses. In the documents are pictures of these sites, and they
all include "nuclear bomb-proof doors", for example. They are
built to withstand enormous cataclysms to be sure.
Why does the church hierarchy spend $36 million in such a
strange way (Christianity didn't have this and it's 2000 years
old!)? Does it bother you Scientologists that you had no input
into this expense? Do you know how much cheaper your courses
could be if this expense did not exist? Do you know how much it
will cost to maintain these places, and how much was spent on the
property and property development? Do you know how much is being
spent putting Hubbard tech on gold CDs? Do you care? Whose idea
was this in the first place? Who approved it? Was it debated? How
were the contracts decided on? Were the contractors acquaintences
of any of the people who approved the contracts?
Who will get to visit these vaults? Who has the combination to the
doors? Who will know what is really in the vaults? Will there be armed
guards at these vaults 24 hours per day? Who will pay for the guards?
Why are all 3 vaults in the Southwestern United States?
