In the New Mexico desert lies an allegedly secret Scientology installation that includes a huge message for extraterrestrials — a crop circle-type design that can only easily be seen from high above the ground.
That’s among the allegations set forth by BBC Panorama reporter John Sweeney in a new book, “Church of Fear: Inside the Weird World of Scientology,” reports the New York Daily News.
The controversial Church of Scientology — which boasts celebrity members Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kirstie Alley and Juliette Lewis — was founded in 1952 by writer L. Ron Hubbard, and promotes the concept that humans are immortal beings with reincarnated souls.
In his book, excerpted in The Sun, Sweeney writes that the two huge interlocking circles — each of which has a large diamond shape inside — were created as markers to guide special Scientologists “returning from space to find Mr. Hubbard’s works after a nuclear Armageddon wipes out humanity.”
Sweeney also reports that buried texts of Hubbard’s teachings are included at the top secret New Mexico Scientology site.
The BBC reporter tried to find “the space alien cathedral that ex-Scientologists say was built deep underground by the church in the 1980s at the cost of millions of dollars.
“Its vault houses the lectures of Hubbard on gold discs locked in titanium caskets sealed with argon. The cathedral is H-bomb proof,” Sweeney reports in his book.
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, according to therawstory.com.

BBC reporter claims to have found Scientologists’ ‘alien space cathedral’

A BBC reporter and longtime rival of the controversial Church of Scientology said he has found and traveled to an “alien space cathedral” it built in rural New Mexico, according to the British newspaper The Daily Mail.
John Sweeney said he went to the site, allegedly known as Trementina Base, along with former Scientologist Marc Headley in the course of researching a book about the controversial religion, best-known for drawing in a number of Hollywood stars.
“I press an intercom button. A voice says ‘Hello’ in what sounds like a Scandinavian accent,” he wrote in the book. “I announce that I’m John Sweeney and ask nicely for a tour. We are not invited in and the intercom simply spouts white noise. We drive back to civilization, wondering what kind of religion builds a space alien cathedral underground.”
The centerpiece of Sweeney’s accusation is a set of symbols on top of the rock formation housing the alleged center, two interlocking circles he said are connected to the group’s belief in extraterrestrial life.
“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?” he said.
According to the newspaper, church officials have condemned Sweeney as “a bigot, a liar and psychotic,” but the reporter has countered that Scientologists have been tailing him since 2007, an ordeal he described in a first-person account published earlier this year.
“Five years ago, I spent weeks at the centre of the church’s attention,” he wrote. “Private investigators who, I believe, were working for the church chased me around the streets of Los Angeles, invaded my hotel at midnight and put me under surveillance. Strangers spied on my wedding and knocked on the doors of my neighbours.”
