    Mark 'Marty' Rathbun: Scientology Beliefs.

    https://markrathbun.wordpress.com/20...ology-beliefs/

    * * * * * BEGIN QUOTATION * * * * *

    In plain English, here are the core religious beliefs of scientology:

    Scientology Beliefs

    1. Planet Earth is a prison. The vast majority of human beings – and billions of invisible other beings – are its inmates.

    2. Xenu is the name of scientology’s Satan who established Earth as a prison and transported billions of beings to serve as its inmates.

    3. Our continued imprisonment is assured by ‘psychs.’ ‘Psychs’ are defined as psychiatrists, psychologists, psycho-therapists, priests, ministers, and anyone else practicing in the field of the mind and spirit. Psychs were sent here from a planet called ‘Farsec.’ They are a special breed of being created and invested with the sole purpose of keeping humankind mentally imprisoned.

    4. Ron Hubbard is the first to discover the truth of 1 through 3 above, and the only one to have devised a means of escaping the prison planet.

    5. Navigation through the only hole in the wall consists of closely emulating Hubbard and behaving as he did when he lived.

    6. Enemies, including psychs as well as anyone expressing any doubt or reservation about these beliefs, must be destroyed by any means necessary by scientologists. Such means include lying, suing, cheating, harassing, intimidating, blackmailing, smearing and by physical violence.

    7. Scientology ‘technology’ consists of a sophisticated mix of pop psychology and hypnotism carefully designed and administered so as to lead people to wholeheartedly accept and live according to these beliefs.

    8. When a scientologist has expended all of his best efforts in the vain pursuit of these beliefs he is expected to ‘discard’ his body so that he may continue to pursue them without such a physical ‘impediment’.

    Whether the ultimate belief, number 8 above, constitutes suicide is a wholly subjective question of religious belief.

    Where does this "Farsec" thingy appear, anyone? Is it in Solo NOTs or OT8? Some Hubbard advice only seen by a few?

    Yes, mentioned in Marty's Book III.

    Of his three books, I actually like Book III, which I bought, a lot.*

    Others, not so much.

    YMMV

    Hubbard possibly came up with some of this stuff by reading ancient gnostic materials.

    For more, just google: gnostic prison planet

    Couple of typical quotes you'll run across:

    "The earth, for the Gnostics, was a prison-planet ruled by an evil tyrant. The soul would continue
    to reincarnate in this insufferable vale of tears until the power of Ialdabaoth and his evil angels
    (the "archons" which encircle the earth) could be broken."

    "So the problem is simple, and one begins to understand how the Gnostics saw it: man, then, is
    a lifelong exile on a planet which is a prison for all mankind; he lives in a body which is a prison
    for the soul; he is the autochthon of a lost and invisible world."

    From Piece of Blue Sky

    In the mid-1970s while in Washington, DC, Hubbard inaugurated a secret project to find out all he could about the "Soldiers of Light" and the "Soldiers of Darkness." The notion that people are born either good or evil and engage in a cosmic spiritual war can be found in Zoroastrianism, and in the Dead Sea Scrolls of the Essenes, whence it found its way into certain Gnostic Christian sects.

    < snip >

    In short, there are a small number of "players," some Soldiers of Light, some Soldiers of Darkness. They are engaged in an eternal battle, using the "pieces" and "broken pieces" to achieve their ends.

    Marty is doing just fine. Works real hard at repairs, Shewolf thinks having a life with a lovely wife and child has done wonders for his conscience.
    He is certainly worth reading...sparingly.

    1 Planet earth is a prison planet

    This should be noted,
    it is a Nazi cult belief,
    there was an interview with a German white supermicist
    by a black gal about Aryan beliefs in white superiority...

    He described it this way..


    Scientologists claiming to be NAZI's in a past life LINK

    Scientology restoration of old buildings... guess what? LINK

    Sounds more like he vaguely remembered Parsec as being some kind of scientific thingamajig, so if he changed it slightly to Farsec it would add credibility as it would look familiar to people. Kinda like the similarity of Xenu to the prefix xeno- meaning alien or strange.
