My Visit to the Church of Scientology

I had the pleasure of visiting the L. Ron Hubbard Life Exhibition of the Church of Scientology this past weekend. I was invited there in April after attending the LA Book Expo by Luc Dubios, a member of the Church and one of their representatives at the Expo. He and I had a frank discussion of the role of L. Ron Hubbard during the period he was hanging out with Jack Parsons of JPL in Pasadena, California. After I suggested he read Dark Mission, Luc wrote me and told me that he felt that Dark Mission could be more accurate in its presentation of the events of the so-called Babylon Working and Hubbard’s role in it. After many months of back and forth, I was finally able to clear my schedule and find the time to drive down to the L. Ron Hubbard museum and Life Exhibition on Hollywood and Ivar in Los Angeles.

Luc was very generous and gave me and my guest a personal tour of the facility, its exhibitions and the various instruments and techniques used in the practice of their religion. I found it all quite fascinating, and frankly I learned a great many things about Mr. Hubbard that I had not previously known. No matter what your opinion of Scientology or Hubbard, there can be no doubt that he was an incredibly prolific, travelled and learned man, who dedicated his life towards many causes that still improve the lives of people today, 20 years after his death. Honestly, I think (my opinion, not the church’s) that he was probably the inspiration for the character of Indiana Jones, if not others, and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

After that, we retired to the offices of Lynn Farney, the Public Affairs Information Officer for the Church, and we went over the issues they had with Dark Mission in great detail. I was shown documents which changed my perspective on Hubbard and his role in the Working to a significant degree.

I’ll be talking about this in more detail in the revised Dark Mission, but suffice it to say that I am now even more intrigued about the Secret History of NASA, and Hubbard and Parson’s role in it.

Dark Mission co-author Mike Bara Interviewed in Winter 2009 Issue of Paranoia Magazine

Dark Mission co-author Mike Bara is interviewed in the Winter 2009 issue of Paranoia Magazine, available now at your local newstand. Paranoia has been publishing edgy commentaries and the stories no one else will touch since 1992. It recently gained fame for the cover of the Fall 2008 issue, featuring President-elect Barack Hussein Obama and whitey hating Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Look for the magazine with the image of Clay Shaw in bondage gear on the cover.

Faked Data on Global Warming Exposed - NASA Lies Again

"All government agencies lie part of the time, but NASA is the only one I've ever encountered that does so routinely."

– George A. Keyworth, Science Advisor to President Reagan and Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, in testimony before Congress, March 14, 1985

If you’ve read Dark Mission, it should come as no surprise to you that NASA lies. However, there is still a sizable portion of the populace that clings to the idea that NASA is somehow exempt from even the notion that it would withhold the truth about anything. As I stated in my essay in Secret and Suppressed II, pointing out NASA’s mendacities makes you about as popular with the press as crosses are with vampires.

Still, there are plenty of examples from the past, and now, yet another example from the present. Monday, NASA announced through the Goddard Institute for Space Studies that last month was the hottest October on record. This flew in the face of the empirical evidence, which suggested that cold, rain and snow were actually a bit more common than usual for October.

Fortunately, a couple of climate watchdog blogs, Watts Up With That and Climate Audit (who both helped debunk Al Gore’s infamous “hockey stick” climate fraud), sifted through the data and discovered that the reason for the incongruity was that NASA had taken temperature readings from Russia from September, and simply copied and pasted the same figures into the October sample. Once the “blunder” was exposed, NASA hurriedly revised its figures, only to suddenly discover a new “hotspot” in the Arctic which once again pushed the temps into the record range. The only problem? Arctic ice is currently growing so fast in the Arctic that it is now 30 percent ahead of last year.


The fact these temperature readings are coming from GISS, one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures and certainly the most influential and most pessimistic, should alarm us all. The UN uses figures from the GISS primarily to justify its attempts to regulate and enforce controls over the economies of developed nations, like the US. Using the myth that man made “global warming” is causing calamitous climate change as its justification, the UN is trying to force nations like the United States surrender national sovereignty and place draconian restrictions on major industries to “combat” what is obviously a non-existent problem. The GISS is run by Al Gore's chief scientific collaborator, Dr James Hansen, who has been a major global warming alarmist since the late 1980’s. He's also the nutbag that recently called for CEO's of oil companies to be put on trial for "high crimes against humanity and nature." Hansen, who despite giving more than 1,500 media interviews in the last 8 years, continues to insist that the Bush administration is “muzzling” him, must be held responsible for this fraud. It is patently obvious that Hansen has deliberately cooked the books, to use a bad metaphor, and given the policy influence his office has, he should be fired immediately. Since this is not the first time that Hansen’s (cough) methodology has been called into question, it’s time for him to go. He is obviously not a scientist with any sense of integrity, but rather a political activist who has misused his position of authority to further a personal agenda.

It has by now been conclusively shown that human industrial activity has no influence whatsoever on global temperatures, and that in fact global temps are dictated almost one to one purely by the waxing and waning energy output of the sun. The flowing graph succinctly illustrates this:

Furthermore, global temperatures have been dropping in the last few years, while the concentration of Co2, the most commonly cited “greenhouse gas,” has been increasing. This has also lead to a measureable increase in plant growth, which is a good thing.

With a new administration coming into Washington that is certain to try and impose the economically ruinous Kyoto protocol on us, Bush could leave a lasting legacy by firing Hansen, disbanding the GISS and declaring it to be an unethical and hopelessly politicized agency that serves no useful purpose.

So once again we see that with NASA, the Lie is Different at Every Level, and the lies go on.

Saturn's Bright New Auroral Ring

A new Cassini infrared image of the North Polar cap of Saturn has revealed something of a surprise -- an intense auroral field generated by the unique physics operating on that planet.

If you have followed this blog or read Dark Mission, you know that Saturn holds a special place in the Hyperdimensional Physics model first proposed by Dark Mission co-author Richard C. Hoagland and Erol Torun. With its unique and bizarre (by conventional models) hexagonal polar ring, Saturn fulfills a specific prediction of the tetrahedrally based topological math that underlies that theory. As Hoagland first described at his 1992 UN briefing, according to topologists like HSM Coxeter, any hyperdimensional system (a spinning system drawing energy from the Aether, or higher spatial dimensions) should have a tetrahedral outwelling signature at 19.5 degrees, and a corresponding "inwelling" feature that is driven to be hexagonal. Saturn of course, with its otherwise inexplicable hexagonal cloud pattern, fits this description perfectly.

It is interesting to note that the newly discovered aurora not only doesn't fit any conventional model for how such magnetic effects are generated (Tom Stallard, an RCUK Academic Fellow working with Cassini data at the University of Leicester, called it a "fantastic surprise"), but it also corresponds closely to the hexagonal cloud form just below it. Just exactly how this aurora is being generated and how it fits the HyperD model isn't clear just yet, but I find the correlation to be compelling. I trust that we will also eventually discern the mechanism, and I'll update readers when that occurs.

Will Phoenix Rise From the Ashes?

Word came down yesterday that NASA's Mars Phoenix Lander has ceased operations and is now considered officially shut down by NASA\JPL. The end of Phoenix' life was not unanticipated, since it was always going to be a relatively short duration mission due to the harsh weather conditions at the landing site near NASA's North polar cap.

Along the way, Phoenix not only took some 25,000 images of the featureless plain upon which it landed, it also pushed the Brookings "time release aspirin" ball a little further up the field, at least in terms of playing footsie with the idea that Mars harbors life. The most significant discovery of the mission was that water ice exists just beneath the surface of the Red Planet. Readers of Dark Mission will of course be well aware that not only ice, but liquid water exists on the surface of Mars, as does microbial life. The findings of Phoenix are quite unremarkable to us, but pretty spectacular by NASA's standards.

What we find far more fascinating is the symbolism connected with this mission. A Phoenix is, naturally, a bird of Egyptian legend that rises magically from the ashes of its own destruction. Again, readers of Dark Mission will be well aware of the significance of yet another NASA mission steeped in Egyptian mythology. By finding and confirming the source of all life, water, Phoenix signaled symbolically the Resurrection of Mars as an abode of life. But we don't expect the death\resurrection symbolism to stop there.

When the lander parachuted into its eventual landing site (captured in an amazing image from Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter) it did so according to the Masonic\Egyptian ritual pattern we have all become so familiar with.

Finding Orion's Belt Star Mintaka on the horizon (an Egyptian symbol of resurrection) was no great surprise. But if the Phoenix symbolism is to be taken to its full extension, then we can expect that the death of the Mars Phoenix Lander has been greatly exaggerated. Time will tell, but we fully expect that Phoenix will be heard from again. After all, science is "nothing, if not prediction," as Richard likes to say.

We'll keep our eyes (and NASA's ears) peeled for any sign that Phoenix has risen from the ashes.

NASA Admits Current Ideas About Mars Moons "Unlikely"

A recent essay by NASA's chief historian Steven J. Dick reveals that even within NASA, there is substantive disagreement about the origin of Phobos and Deimos, Mars' only moons:

"a great deal remains unknown about the moons of Mars, including even their basic composition and their origin. The attendees at the First International Conference on the Exploration on Phobos and Deimos discussed what was known, what was unknown, and how to find out more. Most continue to believe the moons are captured asteroids, but the capture mechanism is unknown and the scenarios unlikely."

Well, duh. See our previous blog post, guys.
