Revenge? What did Earth do to Xenu?

And do I really want to know? :-o

:-b


Xenu and aliens is, in part, what scientology is based on.

That's fascinating. Who buys into this stuff?

Checking out the list of celebrity Scientologists I'm floored to find out that Chaka Khan, Doug E. Fresh, Sonny Bono, Beck, Catherine Bell, Leah Remini and Edgar WInter are all scientologists. Damn.

Buys is the key word. They have to pay to attain higher positions within the religion.

It's quite fascinating in a can't-stop-looking-at-a-car-wreck kind of way. :-S

- L. Ron Hubbard to Lloyd Eshbach, in 1949; quoted by Eshbach in OVER MY SHOULDER: REFLECTIONS ON A SCIENCE FICTION ERA, Donald M. Grant Publisher. 1983

I'm in good shape. Every building in Hollywood also acts as a shelter from alien attacks. :-D

Travolta seems like a normal sane person.

As far as the bunker story goes I tend not to believe it mostly due to the lack of a reliable source. If it weren't for that I would probably believe it. Tom Cruise is a wee bit of a kook.

The kidnapped populace was loaded into space crafts for transport to the site of extermination, the planet of Teegeeack (Earth). The space craft were identical to the Douglas DC-8 with the exception of having different engines.

Cracking me up! :-D

Ok, I read some of the wikipedia article and watched the video. What did Earth do to Xenu? :-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
