Halloween has had a strange effect on me.

Not only did I meet some people whom had stayed at Camelot Castle Hotel, there was much talk of Paganism, white witchcraft and the earth and nature.

It's funny how the mind works, and once again I was reminded of my Father's words in 1974. Speaking of Hubbard and Scientology. "They are all witches, Sharone, they deal in black magic". I thought at the time what a an odd thing to say about the man whom my Father had been so devoted to. I had known Hubbard was evil, but, black magic?

From my earliest years, aged about 7 years old, my father had told me Hubbard was the most important man in the world. At both St. Hill and later on the Apollo I had not seen anything that to me resembled black magic.I saw many horrid things but not black magic.

In 1974,I was 19 years old. Black magic invoked pictures of black cloaked figures with hoods hiding their faces, masked devil worshipers, candles in dark, eerie catacombs with pentagrams, invoking dead spirits, while sacrificing goats, a woman laid out on an alter, strange incantations of unintelligible words. A far cry from e-meters, Navy uniforms, overboardings, kids locked  in the chain locker or hold and being stuck in lower conditions.Evil, yes, but not black magic, or at least not the kind I knew of.

Imagine my shock, when I first came across this in 2006:

It did not take long for for rumors to begin to circulate around the neighborhood of crazed sexual orgies and nightly procession of hooded, candle bearing figures around the Parsons grounds. The Brilliant but eccentric Parsons encountered his downfall in the personage of red-headed L Ron Hubbard science fiction writer and future founder of the pseudo-scientific Scientology movement (Note 2) It seems to have been Parson's friendship with Hubbard that spurred him to undertake what he considered his greatest magical feat--the attempt to bring the "Whore of Babylon" down from the Astral Plane and incarnate it in the womb of a living woman. On the first three days of March 1946, Parsons performed various incantations and had repeated sexual intercourse with a willing devotee while Hubbard acted as scribe. Upon hearing of Parson's project, a mystified Crowley wrote to the head of the his US O.T.O operation: "Apparently Parsons or Hubbard or somebody is producing a Moonchild. I get fairly frantic when I contemplate the idiocy of these louts." Crowley did not have to worry, however. Parsons' "great experiment" failed to impregnate his earthly choice for Whore. To add insult to infertility, Hubbard shortly thereafter absconded with both Parson's girlfriend and $10,000 of his money. Parsons managed to catch up with Hubbard and recover as least part of the loot.


Imagine my shock when I read the above. I knew Hubbard was a bad man as a child, but never in my wildest dreams could I imagine this.....but I knew it to be true.

"He designed his Scientology Operating Thetan techniques (Scientology's secret initiations) to do the same thing. But, of course, it takes a couple of hundred hours of auditing and mega thousands of dollars for the privilege of having your head turned into a glass Humpty Dumpty--shattered into a million pieces. It may sound like incredible gibberish, but it made my father a fortune."
