|Hubbard vs. Christianity|
Hubbard lectures on the origin of the Virgin Mary, and use of her statues in insane asylums.
Now if you had a small statue, a statuette, or any aesthetic article – a real, good aesthetic article – a picture, something very aesthetic, and you were to go into an insane asylum with that thing and set it up, you would show these people and they would see for the first time something that was really real to them. That’s what aesthetics do for people – it’s real. And would you just drop it at that, and say, "Okay. Sit there and look at the Virgin Mary" or whatever it is? You’d never show her, by the way. Get a nude, if anything. Virgin Mary, all those statues, are remade statues of Isis. You still find them in catacombs, by the way, and it says on the top of the base, it says "The Madonna" and turn them over real quick and look at the clay on the bottom of them and you’ll see the Egyptian symbol of Isis.
They just imported Isis and Horus who was found in the bullrushes as a child. They took those statues and that became the early Christian statuettes. Very amusing.
