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: 1989 9,553,582 1990 15,008,504 1991 11,223,349 ---------- total 35,785,435 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 of holocaust. 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? -- ////// Jeff Jacobsen SP3, Scientology critic PO Box 3541 ftp.primenet.com /users/c/cultxpt Scottsdale AZ 85271 http://www.xnet.com/~can/can.html USA Scientology has raided 4 critics' homes!!!
