Scientology members have built a large alien space cathedral in the state of New Mexico with crop-circle design messages that can only be seen from the sky, according to a new book.
The religious organization practices a faith founded by writer L. Ron Hubbard in 1952 that all human beings are reincarnated souls and were brought here by a spaceship thousands of years ago.
The new book is called “Church of Fear: Inside the Weird World of Scientology,” written by John Sweeney, which talks about the faith and how the organization boasts celebrity members Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kirstie Alley and Juliette Lewis.
Sweeney writes that the two huge interlocking circles that contain a large diamond shape were created in the 1980s as a pathway marker to guide special members “returning from space to find Mr. Hubbard’s works after a nuclear Armageddon wipes out humanity.”
There’s also an underground vault that contains original texts of Hubbard’s teaching in the secret New Mexico site.
“Its vault houses the lectures of Hubbard on gold discs locked in titanium caskets sealed with argon. The cathedral is H-bomb proof,” Sweeney writes in his book.
An episode of “Ancient Aliens” covered a story about the religion and its artifacts.
Sweeney went to the supposed site of the alien cathedral accompanied by former Scientologist Marc Headley.
“Headley says he was ‘audited’ — given spiritual counseling — by Tom Cruise, Hollywood superstar and leading church member. Marc says he was also beaten up by the shadowy church’s leader David Miscavige. The church denies both incidents,” Sweeney alleged.
“If I’m wrong about the church believing in aliens, then why have they built these giant symbols in the middle of the desert that can only be seen from outer space,” Sweeney said.
There have been numerous reported UFO sightings in the area, but it’s been difficult to determine if they are aliens of Scientology or a government operation that might be spying on the organization.
