The number of ex-members surpassed current members a LONG time ago.

There are WAY MORE former members now than there are active members in
good standing. Another ONE of $igh'ntology's MANY BIG LIES is their
claim of 7 million (or 8, depending on which story you heard) members.
$igh'ntology's PR machine has forwarded this LIE for so long that
some poor $igh'nos actually believe it! The truth is, it is NOTHING
BUT A FAILED "POSTULATE". Lying about their numbers won't make it true.
It does, however, show how delusional and deceitful they are. The
$igh'nos probably REDEFINED>/i> the word "member" to make themselves
feel good and to try to keep the poor staff members from getting a
"failed purpose" on their job of "clearing" the planet. That's all...
Remember, they claim me as one of their "Clears".

There are at least 160 people who have been "involved" with the cult,
for every one person still active. By involved, I mean those who have
read a book by ElRon or have done at least a basic course. As to the
turnover of staff, there are only a handful of staff at any one org
who stay for longer than than 2 years. And MOST people who join the
Sea Org leave very shortly after joining. In one Sea Org organization
I know for a fact that over 800 staff joined and left within a recent.
10-year period. The turnover rate in personnel in Sea Org orgs is
incredibly high. And the $igh'nos are finding it increasingly hard to
get new recruits due to the volume of press telling the truth about
$igh'ntology. A few more big lawsuits lost by the cult, and a few more
BIG articles like the TIME Magazine one, and $igh'ntology will finally
be in a position that it will never recover from.

Your feeling is a correct perception!

This is what the courts have said about the testimony of former
members. It is credible and compelling. And $igh'ntology CANNOT
STOP it's BLEEDING...

Remember to spread the TRUTH as you see it to others NOT on the
internet, too!! Only about 25% of all households have a computer
from figures I have read, so lots of people are NOT on the net.

TRUTH is a very powerful weapon. That is the one advantage that
ex-members have over the current leaders of the cult. We actually
DO outnumber the culties. We just need to get connected, spread
the truth, warn others about the cult, and expose the lies, crimes
and abuses of $igh'ntology.
