For Tom Cruise believing in spaceships is not acting

spaceship

Actor Tom Cruise is becoming increasingly known for his commitment to Scientology rather than his latest film. And an article faith for Scientologists is a belief in aliens from outer space.

No, this is not a joke.

Scientology teaches its devotees that much of the human condition can be attributed to an “incident” that began in outer space and ended on planet earth.

Sound like Steven Spielberg’s new movie called “War of the Worlds”?

Well, this isn’t a movie script, but rather a religious sacrament amongst Scientologists.

This great truth is revealed to church members when they reach the rank of OT-3 (Operating Thetan Level 3).

Tom Cruise is an OT-6.

Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard is responsible for the origination of this sacred text.

Hubbard revealed that 75 million years ago an alien galactic ruler resolved an overpopulation problem by sending his excess subjects to earth on spaceships.

Billions of aliens thus came here, but they were paralyzed and stacked around the base of volcanoes.

Then H-bombs were lowered and detonated within the volcanoes, hence the exploding mountaintops often seen in Scientology promotions, a cryptic allusion to their once well kept secret that now is widely known through the Internet.

But these billions of alien souls called "thetans" still remain on earth clustered in groups. And Tom Cruise, along with other Scientologists, believes that every earthling is full of them.

These Body Thetans or BTs are also supposedly problematic little pests, which should be dealt with.

Think of Scientology as the ultimate "BT buster."

Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Jenna Elfman all have paid copious amounts of cash to clear themselves and bust those potentially debilitating BTs.

Cruise and Elfman have both reached OT-6, but long-time Scientologist Travolta is an OT-7, though this doesn’t seem to have done his career much good lately.

Sound like some internal/personal “War of the Worlds” these stars have undertaken?

Who says life can’t be like a movie?

L. Ron Hubbard was a Sci-fi writer before becoming a revered religious prophet, though some say he was more like a “cult leader.”

But Hubbard’s story telling bombed as the colossal movie flop “Battlefield Earth” demonstrated starring John Travolta. The author arguably did better creating religious myths. When Hubbard died in 1986 his financial residue was reportedly valued at more than $600 million dollars.

H.G. Welles, the author of “War of the Worlds” certainly knew how to write good Science Fiction, so maybe Tom Cruise will do better than John Travolta with his latest movie project.

But wouldn’t it be great and create much more of a buzz if during the former Top Gun's round of promotional interviews he held forth regarding the great truth taught by Scientology about aliens from outer space? After all it relates rather nicely to the theme of his latest film and allegedly explains much of humanity’s problems.

Wait a minute; forget about such a humanitarian effort.

Tom Cruise can’t do that because of another seemingly holy Scientology sacrament. And that is you have to pay for religious revelation in his church, and there is quite a price list of suggested donations. Those who haven't paid their way to OT-3 may never learn of the carefully guarded secret about spaceships from other worlds.

Well, that is before the proliferation of the Internet.
