    I love this one. This part in particular. Sometimes I forget just how batshit insane Hubbard really was.

    Therein lies Ron's first mistake. His woman of the confessions manifests none of the necessary symbolism to be the HGA described by Crowley. Hubbard started off squirreling the tech so to speak, and look at where we are today...

    There's enough info in the Village Voice article to quote from.
    Now all we need is a proper citation of the volume number and page numbers of the article in Nova Religio

    "No child was born, Hubbard made off with another of Parsons's girlfriends, Betty Northrup, and absconded to Florida in a sailboat-sales scheme gone haywire..."

    A sailboat-sales scheme gone haywire? Anyone have information on this? The craziness continues.

    Read "Bare-Faced Messiah" - you'll be glad you did :)

    You do know about the moonchild / whore of Babylon and all that, don't you?

    Best Regards

  13. This. BFM is an astounding read and is the best source of reliable info on Hubbard.
    Sex magic, occultism, stealing from Jack Parsons, stealing ideas from Hitler,
    having $US400,000,000 in cash, setting up his own navy, trying to get a foothold
    in or taking over a few countries, kidnapping his wife and young baby, fighting
    a war with the US govt... It is a bizzare tale and all true.

    An interesting read. Covers the Hubbard connections. Not exhaustive, but nevertheless juicy.

    "Next morning, the magicians (Hubbard and Jack Parsons) had more prosaic business to attend to. For some time, Ron, Betty and Jack had been discussing the prospect of going into business together, buying yachts on the East Coast and sailing them to California to sell at a profit. On 15 January the three of them signed their names to an agreement setting up a business partnership with the hopeful title of 'Allied Enterprises'. It was not exactly an equitable financial arrangement, since Parsons put up more than $20,000, Ron only managed to vouchsafe $1200 and Betty contributed nothing. Under the articles of co-partnership, it was vaguely stated that Allied Enterprises would indulge in activities of a 'varied and elastic nature', presumably with an eye to subsequent expansion into other fields."

    Follow-up details on page 127.

    It was alright, but no revelations. Although I don't doubt that for some it's new news.

    For ESMB members only.. WTF??

  26. If he is a rocket scientist then why is he holding a bomb?

    EDIT: never mind. No wonder he blew himself up. Too bad Hubbard wasn't nearby.

    Nothin' like blowing some shitup after a long day of mescaline trippin and free love.

    Pasadena group leads ghost tours for Halloween

    By Lauren Gold, Pasadena Star-News, October 5, 2013


    The final tour destination, on Oct. 18 and 19, is Devil’s Gate Dam. Records indicate that the dam was named for a rock formation that looks like the devil, but Knoedler said the story goes that the area has a stronger demonic connection.

    “There was apparently rituals that were done at the dam by Jack Parsons, founder of JPL, and Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. Apparently that opened up some kind of negative energy portal there,” Knoedler said. “I believe that to be somewhat true because I came home from the dam one night and there were three long scratch marks on my leg, and in the paranormal field that’s supposed to be a demonic attack.”

    Good Grief! The worst part is some of them may even breed and spread the bullshit to new generations.

    A 2005 revised edition of the 1999 "Sex and Rockets: The Occult World of Jack Parsons" that Urban uses as a reference is here:

    This is as in-depth as it gets, with Hubbard mentioned frequently in pages 101-194.
    Here's a quote from page 136 about Hubbard and Parsons switching roles:

    Thanks for that warning. Out of the 14 mirror sites that page points to, people should avoid the mirrors offering anything other than the straight PDF.
    If it wasn't such a huge file due to all the photos that are included in it, attaching to a post here would've been an option.

    Very nice. If only there was a detailed treatment of how Dianetics is ripped-off from Crowley's 'Magic Memory'....
