You are at the threshold of your next trillion years. You will live it in shivering, agonizing darkness or you will live it triumphantly in the light. The choice is yours. If you wish to leave the room after seeing this film, walk out and never mention Scientology again, you are free to do so. It would be stupid, but you are free to do it. You can also dive off a bridge, or blow your brains out; that is your choice. It is your future.
This is the closing statement of Orientation: A Scientology Information Film, which you can now view in its entirety, online. If you ever, in a moment of weakness, doubted that Scientology was a bad idea, I’d recommend you watch the movie and read up on what Scientology actually entails.
What the film entirely fails to mention is that Scientology is based on a story by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard. The story tells of a “Galactic Confederacy” ruled by the dark lord Xenu who, to cope with over-population problems, brought billions of aliens to Earth in starcruisers that looked like DC-8 planes, dropped these aliens around volcanoes and then proceeded to hydrogen bomb them. According to Scientology, these lost alien souls inhabit our bodies, even today, and cause all the problems we face in life.
Instead, “Orientation” advises you buy a stacks of books, get auditing and maybe even make Scientology auditing your career.
Incidentally, L. Ron Hubbard has been quoted as saying:
The way to make a million dollars is to start a religion.
Scientology claims to have the answers, yet this orientation film seems to omit facts that are less easily sold. As such, this information gets honorable mention here: knowing is half the battle.
