Case File #8972 - Scientology (Amy Raugust)

Eric and Ben welcome back returning champion Amy Raugust. Tonight on the show we dissect Scientology. What exactly is it and why is it so appealing? Then we discover Lord Xenu's galactic battles as well as L. Ron Hubbard's magick sex conquests! We find a lot of common ground with the Church's message and think anything said in here should be taken with a grain salt. Right? This is just a harmless podcast. I mean, don't kill me, okay? If I die, they did it. Plus the show welcomes a new monologue writer, Mort Gershwin! We also totally did an episode on The Holy Bible already, so this isn't singling anything out. Okay?

  3. It's prounounced Theytans, to rhyme with "Satans," or "Satans" said with a lisp, if you will. This was purely intentional on the part of Hubbard, who dealt with Jack Parsons and took part in occult sex magick rituals as conceived by noted satanist Aleister Crowley. I'm not making this up, it is documented in multiple locations. The Scientology Cross is based on the "Rosicross" present on the back of a deck of Tarot cards designed by Crowley himself. The cross was introduced into Scientology in the middle 1960's by Hubbard in a bid to gain respectability and throw society off the trail of what he was really doing.

  4. They actually did use soup cans on the e-meter for quite a number of years, but stopped doing that because they realized how stupid it looked. They replaced the soup cans with solid metal cylinders to hold on to, but the machine still looks dorky.

  5. Okay, you brought up the Parsons and Crowley stuff later on in the recording. I hadn't listened that far yet. Good work.
