Wikipedia’s entry on Xenu, who seemed to be the Stalin of galactic rulers.
In Scientology doctrine, Xenu is a galactic ruler who, 75 million years ago, brought billions of people to Earth, stacked them around volcanoes, and blew them up with hydrogen bombs. Their souls then clustered together and stuck to the bodies of the living, and continue to cause people problems today. These events are known to Scientologists as “Incident II,” and the traumatic memories associated with them as The Wall of Fire or the R6 implant. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, detailed the story in Operating Thetan level III (OT III) in 1967, famously warning that R6 was “calculated to kill (by pneumonia etc) anyone who attempts to solve it.” The Xenu story was the start of the use of the volcano as a common symbol of Scientology and Dianetics from 1968 to the present day.
On a completely unrelated note, here is a video from Waxy.org of Tom Cruise killing Oprah Winfrey. (opens to .mov)
WFMU’s Beware of the Blog has songs you can download from L. Ron Howard’s album, The Road to Freedom performed by John Travolta, Leif Garrett, Frank Stallone and others. The last song is performed by L. Ron Hubbard himself. His singing is about as good as the story for Battlefield Earth.
Be warned though, I was jumping on my sofa and being interviewed by an invisible Oprah by the third track.
