Blog: Critical Q&A 122 - 2017-08-20
The weekly show where I answer viewer questions based on what is left for me in the comments section of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, the questions I answer are:
(1) So Scientologists believe that they have lived millions of lives before and done everything before, like be in a high management person in the Sea Org even if they still are teenagers. How do they then explain away why they have not cleared the planet a few million lives ago then since everyone already knows everything? And how did Hubbard explain away that he just now figured out how to save the world? I mean, would he not be a pretty lousy thetan to be that late in the game?
(2) In the Catholic Church, canonisation does not create a saint but only recognises officially that someone was a saint all along. In Scientology, when someone is declared a Suppressive Person, is the process similarly recognising officially that the person was an SP all along? If so, Study Tech was invented by SPs (being in fact the creation of two Scientologists who were subsequently declared). In like manner, at least one of the upper OT levels was written by an SP, David Mayo. Leaving aside how Hubbard could know that 2.5% of the population at large are SPs, one has the impression with the blizzard of SP declares among ex-Scientologists that the percentage of latent SPs in the Church is far higher than 2.5%. Can we put a ballpark figure on this actual percentage? If it is indeed much higher, how is this explained inside the Church? Presumably not because the Church is naturally attractive to criminals.
