Xenu or Xemu? Here's our take on one of Scientology's galactic-wide mysteries - 2018-01-10
We get asked a certain question on occasion, and since we get tired of answering it each time, we thought we'd put together this post so we can direct people here in the future.
This question gets asked because some time back our esteemed friend and colleague Chris Shelton made the claim that scholars of Scientology had all made a big mistake, and that the villain of Scientology's OT 3 should actually be referred to as "Xemu" and not "Xenu."
This is not really a very important question, because Hubbard's OT "tech" is all nonsense anyway, but we did want to explain why we differ with Chris on this — and we are doing so not to get sideways with anyone, so put down the pitchforks.
