I have no trouble getting from here to the main Scientology website.

BTW. Blocking access from critic sites would be very stupid and I bet they have realized that.
Many of the people who reads the critic sites are people seeking information about Scientology for all sorts of reasons. The church will very much want them to arrive at their site.

Aldous Huxley might have also influenced Hubbard to take drugs and alcohol while trying to dream up the next space-opera mythology for OT III. The late-1960's quest-for-spiritual-truth-through-drugs was given considerable prestige by the rediscovery of Aldous Huxley's Doors of Perception first printed in 1954. Harvard Professor and drug enthusiast Timothy Leary met Huxley in the 1960's, when Huxley was far more famous, especially for writing the brilliant "Brave New World." While Leary's fame peaked in 1963 when expelled form Harvard, Huxley's 1960's peak of fame came when Jim Morrison named his rock group The Doors after Huxley's Doors of Perception in 1965. I remember Morrison saying that's where the name came from, even though at the time I was a teenager, didn't do drugs, and thought The Doors of Perception must be about spirituality.

Those of you born after the mid-1970's have trouble imagining the wide-eyed embrace of LSD, mescaline, and peyote to "expand your mind."(none of which I ever tried).

Carlos Castaneda was an interesting parallel to Hubbard. He could not have influenced the late-1967 OT III, since Castaneda's first book The Teachings of Don Juan came out in 1968. Yet both Castaneda and Hubbard
(1) used drugs for inspiration, copying those who promised new insights through drug use
(2) promised shamanistic powers that no readers ever attained.
(3) pretended their writings were real - remember how angry Castaneda fans were to find out Don Juan was fictional?
(4) developed a cult-like following - people went looking for Don Juan in the desert!
(5) in the end, contributed little to human understanding.

Quick! We cartoon super-heroes must file a copyright lawsuit against the earthling
L. Ron Hubbard who has stolen our story and made it into a money-making religion!

What?

LRH died?

Gadzooks! Then we must sue this David Miscavige person who is the new Exalted Cheesewheel of Scientology!

This DM is said to live over the rainbow surrounded by handsome young male assistants with whom he is rumored to spend some considerable time with behind closed doors at Gold.

To blend in at Gold, we will disguise ourselves as superheroes who can relate to DM's rumored secret life of manlove:

This is VERY interesting, as it predates the OT III materials. Most on the board have probably not seen this thread.

Yeah, the Xenu story wasn't even his own imagination or evil-genius. It was just regurgitating old comics and sci-fi plots, and the headlines of the daily paper.

A disturbing new article about Carlos Castenada, in Salon.com at http://www.salon.com/books/feature/2007 ... index.html , makes my July 13, 2005 post above even more apt. It led me to start a new thread, Carlos Castenada copied Hubbard, founded a personality cult, at viewtopic.php?t=22709

In the spirit of thread necromancy; here is a good one.

The goons at something awful are discussing this. It seems someone discovered the story of Xenu that struck a bell with him.
He knows just about everything there is to know about comic books and he linked me to this:

http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix3/xemnuthetitan.htm

Marvel comics created a character in the 60's called Xemnu! Right around the time LRH wrote OTIII.

I found a thread on Xenu.net's forums where there's a very detailed discussion about this. Xenu.net forums have sucked me in more than once.

viewtopic...nu+magic+planet


Haha that's awesome, there is even one called Zemu! http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/xemu.htm Coincidentally it looks like he is wearing a guy fawkes mask.
Is this the true source of OTIII? Hubbard plagiarized almost everything else he wrote.

Should Marvel Comics sue scientology for copyright violation?

Read this link. It sure sounds like OTIII to me!

In 2003 Don Carlo had the following great idea. I think it would be totally apropos for the cult of scientology to get sued for copyright violation by Marvel comics right about now, it will make a triple header grand slam when combined with the recent lawsuits filed on them for copyright infringement by Peter Letterese for stealing his Les Dane "Big League Sales" and by Crimson Tide for stealing their song.

It will be hilarious to splash the fact all over the media that Hubbards whole religion was stolen and plagiarized fron a comic book.

The lawsuit happy cult of the almighty copyright is based on copyright theft.

Poetic justice.

Isn't it funny that Hubbard alternated between calling his villain Xenu and Xemu? Maybe he couldn't quite remember how to spell it!

L.R. Hubbard contributed to Amazing Stories and Astounding. In fact, Dianetics first turns up in Astounding 195 # 4. An avid reader looking for ideas, he certainly would have read other comics (even Hubbard could afford the price of a comic book!) including Marvel Science Fiction.

Here Hubbard defends the pulps:

There's certainly enough direct and indirect evidence that LRH borrowed the Xenu idea.
