Scientologists wish to preserve teachings no matter what befalls Earth

I can’t put it past Scientologists to do seemingly wacky things but I’m not sure what to make of this story.

Scientologists build underground ‘space alien cathedral’ – The West Australian.

Scientologists have constructed an enormous underground “space alien cathedral” near Roswell in the United states, according to a BBC reporter.

John Sweeney, who has dedicated much of his career to investigating the secretive church, describes the multi-million dollar facility in his new book, Church of Fear.

“We are seeking the space alien cathedral that ex-Scientologists say was built deep underground by the church in the 1980s at a cost of millions of dollars,” says an extract from the book adapted for The Sun newspaper.

“Its vault houses the lectures of church founder L Ron Hubbard on gold discs locked in titanium caskets sealed with argon.

They wish to protect the teachings just in case there is some global catastrophe. I guess I can see the point of that. It would be a good idea to safely store the documents but this may be a bit of overkill.

    How do you seal something in argon? You can place something within a container and fill it with argon, but you certainly can’t “seal” anything with argon. This was either poor wording or an indication that the author doesn’t understand that argon is a gas.
