    IAS MEMBERSHIP RANKINGS, PINS, STATUES, MONEY

    I think this needs it's own thread. If mods disagree, feel free to delete.



    Yes. These are cumulative lists. Up until a year or two ago, the Impact Magazines would list all the patrons each and every month. If you donated $40,000 in 1990 you would be listed as a Patron in every issue from that date on. It did not mean you donated 40 grand each issue, instead, it was a one shot donation. The only time this would change is when you upgraded your status. If at first, you were just a lowly Patron with a 40 grand dono, (now it's 50 grand to be a Patron) and they squeezed more money out of you until you donated a total of 100 grand, then you would be upgraded in status to Patron with Honors.


    Below is an Dec 2006 IAS Membership Brochure. The amount of money for some of the rankings changed. For example, a Patron used to be $40,000, it's now $ 50,000, and a yearly membership changed from $300.00 to $450.00.

    Here's the current dono/status memberships for the IAS with pins, plaques, statues, bells and whistles. The statues are ornate and tacky as per standard tech.

    Lifetime membership $3,000 (used to be $2,000)

    Lifetime memberships are not listed in the Impact Mag

    Sponsor: $5,000

    Crusader: $10,000

    Honor Roll: $20,000 or "Helping 20 people become member of the IAS"

    Sponsors, Crusaders and Honor Roll are only listed once in the IAS Mags.

    Senior Honor Roll: "Helping 100 or more people become member of the
    IAS contributing to IAS expansion in some stellar fashion"-- no money amount.

    Patron: $50,000
    Patron with Honors: $100,000
    Patron Meritorious: $250,000
    Silver Meritorious: $500,000 (was $750,000 prior to February 2005)
    Gold Meritorious: $1,000,000
    Platinum Meritorious: $2,500,000
    Diamond Meritorious: $5,000,000
    Patron Laureate: $10,000,000

    I've posted those Impact lists for many years and I think I fucked up my eyesight trying to read that Nazi font they use. (Nazi font = blurry and tiny)

    A couple of years ago, I noticed they stopped posting the complete Patrons lists, and now only list the Patrons that were most recently bilked out of their money.

    HTH, I'll be happy to answer any questions you have about the lists.

    How can anyone look at that and say Scientology isn't all about the money.

    Do you get anything truly free in Scientology? Even the 'free stress test' is all about selling you the Dianetics book.

    Re: IAS MEMBERSHIP RANKINGS, PINS, STATUES, MONEY

    Earlier in life (much earlier) I worked in a fancy art gallery selling Picasso, Chagall, Miro et al original paintings and lithographs for huge amounts of money. A major part of the sales pitch was "STATUS." You couldn't pitch very hard on the "investment" angle (you had to say "maybe, perhaps, possibly"), but the idea of friends and colleagues knowing that one owns the work of a 20th century master was compelling. People would buy these things even if they hated the image and found no joy or transformation in it. Just elevated status.

    No, just a lifetime membership at Starbucks.

    And since you signed the "10 Billion Year" contract, that's a lotta latte...
  11. SaucyJack Member

    Re: IAS MEMBERSHIP RANKINGS, PINS, STATUES, MONEY

    ^ Indeed, exactly how many lifetimes does the lifetime IAS membership cover?
    Does it cover all your past lives too?
    Is it $3000 per lifetime?

    I wonder if the small print says you have to pay a "freeloader membership debt" to the IAS for 75 million years of backdated lifetimes should you hand back your card.

    EDIT: Donating $10 million "epitomises true heroism," people who donate $5 million are "leaders of the civilisation whose deeds have set them apart," a $1 million donation represents "extraordinary support and dedication" and so on.

    The people who dedicate their lives, albeit foolishly, to working slavishly for the Cult don't receive such awards. It just goes to show the Cult isn't ashamed of what it clearly values the most.

    Re: IAS MEMBERSHIP RANKINGS, PINS, STATUES, MONEY

    So let me get this clear.

    A celebrity scientologist, who donates $1,000,000 to the 'church', yet never sold one copy of Dianetics, is considered "extraordinary support and dedication" and worth more to the cult than the poor struggling public scientologist who's chucking in 60 hours a week standing out in all weathers trying to sucker in people for a 'free stress test' and getting abuse from us?

    How can they not see how wrong that is?*



    * not being recognised, not being abused.

    Re: IAS MEMBERSHIP RANKINGS, PINS, STATUES, MONEY

    As always, the scilons provide all the necessary ingredients for hilarious juxtaposition in their materials.

    The quote from LRH saying something to the effect of achieving the goals of scientology won't be easy, so we need everyone we can get. Of course, looking at the membership costs I guess this should be ammended to say something along the lines of "we need everyone we can get, unless they can't afford to pay $500 per year, on top of all their other church fees."

    I also love how obvious this makes it that scientology is all about money. They don't even realize it anymore because they've gotten so used to it. The descriptions for the award levels list the only requirement as contribution of a certain amount of money, and claim that the awards are bestowed upon those who have contributed to the future of saving humanity and other shit like that. So let's parse that logic shall we?

    To further scientology, is to save humanity. Contribution of money is recognized as supporting scientology. Thus to donate money to scientology is to further scientology which is to save humanity. Thus we see that giving money to scientology is a way to protect and nurture the human race. You don't have to actually help people, just cut a check to the IAS. Riiiiiight.

    Is this the same Duggan that owns a major pharmacutical company? WTF?

    If so, I really underestimated the power and money I have been up against
    and why certain entities are hesitant to probe/investigate?

  32. anonymous612 Member

    1. I believe you're thinking of Robert Duggan.
    2. No Scientologist* would ever run a pharma company. Holistic medicine, sure. Big Pharma, no. Big Pharma scifag. MIND BLOWN.
    3. This thread was last posted on in 2010.

    I agree and did some further research. He doesn't own a "Psych" drug pharmacutical company, but rather the following:

    The only reason this Thread attracted my attention was because of the Narconon
    connections RE: Megan Shields and being pointed in this direction from ESMB when
    someone replied to one of my Posts: http://www.forum.exscn.net/showthre...sed-David-Love&p=645293&viewfull=1#post645293

    It didn't jive that the COS would tolerate a Pharmacutical company owner dealing in Psych drugs,
    no matter how much they donated? Further research showed it was a Pharmacylic company, not
    a Pharmacutical company.

    However, it sure did open my eyes to some big money people involved in the COS.

    OMG

    I just noticed the sample name used on all the IAS cards is "John Preston".

    John Preston is the name of the lead character in the movie Equilibrium (played by Christian Bale).
    Just look at this storyline from IMDB:

    I remember laying on my bed one evening and my buddy, who was also just recruited onto the NN TR staff,
    were talking about the absurd events of the day. It was so friggin out to lunch-crazy, I said, "This is like living in a science fiction movie." - - neither of us could believe what we were involved in that day!

    Earlier that day (and this is minor compared to what else happened), a scientologist staff member
    was trying to explain to me about the higher levels of scientology as a "super-being", able to move
    a pen on a desk by only using his mind.

    Robert Duggan (huge million dollar COS donator), is directly tied into Johnson & Johnson, major
    Psych Drug Pharmacutical Company.

    Here are the tie-in Links:

    Duggan owned Pharmacylics and sells/partnered to/with Janssen Biotech, who in turn is part of the
    Johnson & Johnson pharmacutical psych drug company:
    http://seekingalpha.com/article/313249-pharmacyclics-scores-big-with-janssen-biotech-deal

    Under investigation for kick-backs: (Justice Department)
    http://www.naturalnews.com/028431_Big_Pharma_kickbacks.html
    http://www.naturalnews.com/Johnson_&_Johnson.html

    Duggan defrauds $250 million of investors money?
    http://www.skeptictank.org/slatkin/rslat085.htm

    What I'm trying to wrap my mind around, is how the COS can support Duggan, a COS member, albeit
    a huge $$$$$ contributor. So the COS hates psych drug pharmacutical companies, but as long as there
    is incoming $$$$$, it's ok??? Ludicrous!

    Am I missing something here???
