I also just came across this:
While on the confidential class 8 course in Scotland, listening
to Hubbard's twenty lectures--taped just weeks previously on the
_Apollo_ in Corfu, Greece--I was exposed to, among other things,
Hubbard's opinion of Christianity:
Somebody on this pkanet, about 600 B.C. found some pieces of
I don't know how they found it; either by watching madmen or
something. But since that time they have used it. And it became
what is known as Christianity.
The man on the cross. There was no Christ!
The Roman Catholic Church, through watching the dramatizations
of people picked up some little fragments of R6.**
** In a bulletin of that period he states: "Also the Christian Church
used (and uses) implanting. . . . They took over the Nicene Creed just
before the year zero, invented Christ (who comes from the 'crucifixion'
in R6, 75 million years ago) and implanted their way to power.
(From Bent Corydon, _L. Ron Hubbard, Messiah or Madman?_, 1992 revised
edition, Fort Lee, N.J.: Barricade Books, p. 355.)
Based on the references I have seen, there is no question that Hubbard
thought that Jesus was an "implant" and Christianity a fraud.
Would any of the ex-Scientologists here care to say more about R6?
