The Nation of Islam and Scientology
both have deep roots in Satanism
Scientology can be considered the most successful organizational offshoot of the Satanist Aleister Crowley's work.

As I revealed in an article in 2006, the Nation of Islam is only very remotely associated with Islam, and founded on the occult teachings of Freemasonry. Recently I have become aware of its connection to Scientology.
According to Wikipedia, Farrakhan announced his embrace of Dianetics on May 8, 2010 and actively encouraged Nation of Islam members to undergo "auditing" from the Church of Scientology. Since then, the Nation of Islam has been hosting its own dianetics courses and its own graduation ceremonies. By 2013, nearly 8500 members had undergone dianetics auditing. At a 2013 graduation ceremony, Shane Woodruff, vice-president of the Church of Scientology's Celebrity Centre International, stated that "The unfolding story of the Nation of Islam and Dianetics is ... absolutely committed to restoring freedom and wiping hell from the face of this planet."
Recently Louis Farrakhan "told his flock that no one may be a leader in the Nation unless and until they have attained the Scientology state of Clear. ... the cost of reaching the Clear state in Scientology is $128,000. ... while he has been preaching the word of Mohamed, he has been involved in Scientology for over thirty years."
The NOI is thoroughly intertwined with the leading occult trends of the twentieth century. In Black Terror White Soldiers, I pointed out that the NOI traces its descent again to one Jamal ud Din al Afghani, (1836-1897) the notorious imposter who simultaneously was the main inspiration behind the occult revival of the nineteenth century, as well as the fundamentalist Salafi "reform" movement of Islam, which has been the backbone of the CIA's projects in the Middle East.
Historian K. Paul Johnson proposes that it was Afghani, left, who was largely responsible for the central doctrines of H. P. Blavatsky, the leading influence behind the occult revival and considered the godmother of the New Age movement.
As a leader of the mysterious Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor, Afghani laid the foundations for organizations like the Golden Dawn and ultimately the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO) of Aleister Crowley. In Afghani's own words, he explained:
We do not cut off the head of religion except with the sword of religion. Therefore, if you were to see us now, you would see ascetics and worshipers, kneeling and genuflecting, never disobeying God's commands and doing all that they are ordered to do.
THE NATION OF ISLAM AND SCIENTOLOGY
The Nation of Islam was founded by Elijah Mohammed, who was instructed by a mysterious person of Arab background named Wallace Fard Muhammed who claimed he was God.
According to the FBI, Fard, left, had as many as 27 different aliases and was a sometime petty criminal. ...Farrakhan attributes the merger of the NOI with Scientology to an earlier contact between Fard and Hubbard. Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard was closely associated with Jack Parsons, who went on to become one of the founders of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena and the Aerojet Corporation. Parsons was a leader of the Agape lodge, the American chapter of Aleister Crowley's OTO. Charles Stansfeld Jones, or Frater Achad by his occult name, who Crowley considered his "magical son" and the "one" prophesied in the Book of the Law, started a lodge of the OTO in Vancouver.
Jones's initiate W.T. Smith started his own group, Agape Lodge, in California in the 1930s. After Crowley had moved to California, in the words of Francis King, "for the next ten years [until Crowley's death in 1947] California was the main center of OTO activity." Parsons became obsessed with The Book of the Law, and began a regular correspondence with Crowley, referring to him as "Most Beloved Father" and himself as "Thy son, John."
Likewise, Crowley claimed in 1919 to have contacted an extraterrestrial named Lam, connected to the Sirius and Andromeda star system, and the sketch he produced of it is a crude version of the iconic "greys" that have now come to be associated with alien contact. Picknett and Prince say that when the "flying saucer" craze began in 1947, Parsons stated that the "discs" would "help to convert the world to Crowley's magic religion."
In the late 1940s, with Jack Parsons was already corresponding Anton Szandor Lavey, who went on to found the Church of Satan on Walpurgisnacht, April 30, 1966. LaVey (originally Levy) first worked in the circus, carnival and burlesque houses as a lion tamer and musician and became deeply interested in the occult, and ordered several of Crowley's works from Parsons.
Parsons met L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology,left, in 1945 and introduced him to the OTO, though Hubbard claimed he joined the order as part of an infiltration assignment on behalf of the Office of Naval Intelligence. When Jack met Hubbard, he described him to Crowley as "the most Thelemic person I have ever met." Jack also noted about him to Crowley, "although he has no formal training in Magick, he has an extraordinary amount of experience and understanding in the field."
Together, beginning in 1946, they started the "Babalon Working," a series of rituals designed to manifest an individual incarnation of the archetypal divine feminine called Babalon, in reference to the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, related to the Canaanite Astarte, and with the "Great Whore" of the Book of Revelation. During the ceremony, Hubbard acted as a scribe. When rituals were complete, Parson met Marjorie Cameron whom he regarded as the creation of the ritual and considered her his "Scarlet Woman."
They soon began ...an attempt to conceive a child through sexual magic. Parsons wanted to create a Moonchild, as outlined in Crowley's occult novel by the same name. Although no child was conceived, Parsons and Cameron soon married. By 1952, Parsons referred to himself as Belarion Armiluss Al Dajjal Antichrist, "Al Dajjal" being the Islamic name for the Antichrist.
And as noted by Nikolas & Zeena Schreck, authors of Demons of the Flesh, "in many ways Scientology can be considered the most successful organizational offshoot of the Great Beast's work, having achieved a world standing and impact the various OTOs and other Crowleyan derivatives have not..."
When Hubbard formulated Dianetics, he described it as "a mix of Western technology and Oriental philosophy." He said that Dianetics "forms a bridge between" Cybernetics and General Semantics, a set of ideas about education originated by Alfred Korzybski, which received much attention in the science fiction world in the 1940s.

First Comment from Marcos:
Scientology is a satanic cult, and their auditing process is simply a method for mind control and eventual demonization.
They also abuse and exploit children in a constant basis, as can be verified in the book
Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape
by Jenna Miscavige, niece of the current leader.
Everything that Livingstone says about the origins of the cult is true, but these extraordinaire facts are never discussed or even mentioned by the media.
I'm well versed in the history of the NOI. I remember Malcom X and his death in a hail of bullets by two of Farrakhan's personal Manchurian Candidates.
Farrakhan admits to Malcolm X assassination
So Farrakhan's bizarre announcement in 2010 that he expected all members of the NOI to begin Scientology training wasn't a total shock.
But I wondered how his rank and file were going to react to being merged with a white dominated cult, probably best known to them through Scientology "Theta Clear" poster boys Tom Cruise and John Travolta.
Farrakhan's got a deal with Scientology. If not, he could have merely adapted their rackets into the secret society aspects of his NOI hierarchy.
Farrakhan just turned 81 earlier this month. He looks pretty energetic for an octogenarian that was diagnosed with prostate cancer twenty three years ago.
Scientology seems like a crack pot cult on the surface, but like Michael Aquino's Temple of Set, there is far much more to it than can be proven. One of their claims to members is that they can extend life, and they certainly may have been doing that for Farrakhan.
