Another example of scientology shooting itself in the foot with their own statistics.
This org Org is manned primarily with Sea Org members— Kathleen Olsen was one of those shipped off to this org that the Aftermath Foundation helped to escape.
Columbus became “ideal” 4 years ago.
Apparently what they are most proud of (perhaps more accurately, the least embarrassing thing they can point to) is selling 11,000 books and getting “over 700” people onto their first service. Not a word about the real stats that are supposed to measure the success of an org: how many Clears and Class V auditors they’ve made and how many groups, social betterment groups and missions they have opened in the Scientology wasteland that is the Midwest. I would guess the number of Clears would be single digits in 4 years and the other stats would all be 0.
Let’s break down the numbers they are willing to announce (even though they are the missions that groups and missions should be judged against). 4 years is 200 weeks give or take. This translates into about 50 books sold per week and 3.5 new service starts a week. They should have DOZENS of groups and missions EACH producing this sort of new public inflow by now. And remember, it takes a LOT of first service starts to get a single person started on a real Bridge service. They may be getting 1 in 50, or a new person on the bridge every 3.5 months.
This is how they are clearing the planet!
But good news. More than a year after the program launched they are “gearing up now” to send an executive team to Flag for training! Woohoo.
PS: Diane, the word manifold as an adjective means “of many kinds, numerous and varied” not “multiple” as in “more than one, several.”
