Xenu the Evil Alien 1 of 16
Although the Church of Scientology denies it, it's alleged that Scientologists believe in an ancient alien ruler named Xenu.
Here's how the story apparently goes:
- Xenu was an alien 'Galactic Confederacy' dictator.
- 75 million years ago he brought billions of his fellow aliens to Earth to alleviate overcrowding.
- They traveled in spacecraft that looked like DC-8 jet planes.
- The aliens were dropped onto volcanoes -- then hydrogen bombs were used to destroy them.
- Fast forward to the present time -- Supposedly, the spirits of many of these aliens remain, causing spiritual harm to modern people.
