Blog: Critical Q&A 74 - Chris Shelton - Critical Thinker at Large - 2016-09-11
The show where I answer questions left in the comments section of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, the questions I take up are:
(1) When you where going to all the different orgs and seeing the fail that COB was creating with the ideal orgs, were you doing any auditing during this time? What about sec checks? Could you explain how a Sea Org mission works?
(2) If Scientology doesn't want to be viewed as a kooky space alien cult, then how do they explain away the Church of Spiritual Technology? Scientology "scriptures" sealed in 2,300 titanium capsules in "calamity-proof vaults" in the middle of nowhere? Titanium is not cheap, and digging bomb shelters in the desert, with directional markers carved in the earth that can only be seen from the air or space – sure, that sounds completely not weird. What was your knowledge of these sites when you were in the Sea Org? Did you have any second- or third-hand knowledge of what these vaults were really like (shiny and high tech, I hope)? Or is this the ultimate con, with 100% of the money that is regged for the CST funneled into the IAS slush fund?
