Hayley is a Ghost

The sad world of a scientologist

Posted on: May 23, 2010

People have been speculating of late that John Travolta and his wife, Kelly, believe that the baby that they are expecting is the reincarnation of their recently deceased teenage son, Jett.

Whilst many find this silly and point out how stupid the couple are being I cannot help but find it extremely sad. It’s an example of the damage that a mind washed completely with a ‘religion’ can do to the way you view the world around you, and life itself.

Jett was taken off of his anti-seizure drugs because scientology doesn’t believe in mental illness. They believe it is psychosomatic and can be cured with long spells in a sauna and high doses of Vitamin B and vegetable oils which, the sect claims, can dislodge toxins trapped in the body’s fatty tissues.

Many of us will see this for the dangerous pseudoscience that it is and we saw the outcome of this belief when Jett tragically dieafter a seizure whilst his family were on holiday.

We should remember that Hubbard, the founder of scientology was a science-fiction writer, not a doctor.

Scientologists believe t human bodies are simply empty vessels for the wandering souls of aliens, called Thetans.

Scientologists theorise that a dearly missed child can be reincarnated in the form of your next offspring. According to some news sources, this is precisely what Preston in particular believes.

Obviously there is no proof that reincarnation happens, or even that the human soul exists, or that the body is a vessel for alien spirits. All of it is specualtion (some weirder and wilder that the rest!)

However, it’s not the psuedoscience that made me want to blog about this, it’s the tragic undertone here that I think some people miss. I don’t find it annoying or silly or hilarious or stupid. I find it extremely sad, and I feel fortunate that I don’t have a religion overriding the way I view and control my life and the lives of people around me.

It is so sad that people can become so deluded that they will continue to believe in something even after such a terrible tragedy. Maybe they just can’t bring themselves to even consider that they were responsible for their poor son’s death through their misguided beliefs.
