SPBill on 9/6/96:
Scientology likes to tout success stories. The church is always publishing its “Big Wins” – whenever somebody completes a course or training level you can be sure their name gets mentioned in the scieno propaganda magazines. Of course it is all very one-sided: the church *never* publishes any statistics about people who have seen the light and blown. For an organization that claims to be the most “ethical” on the planet, they go to a great deal of trouble to control what their devotees are allowed to read.
What are the statistics the church hides?
Anyone with a computer can make a list of people who have graduated Scientology courses, reached Clear and OT levels, etc. It is then possible to follow these individuals and see what happens to them. Every so often a copy of the church’s list of declared SP’s leaks out and we get to cross-check the names against the people who wrote all those success stories Scientology showered on us.
A chilling picture emerges: the further one travels on the Bridge the greater his risk of getting declared an SP! This is not idle speculation; hard data reveal the truth Scientology does not want you to find out.
One such list emerged back in 1983. The list is long but for brevity I will report only those who had reached at least OT-VII, which was the furthest you could go on the bridge at that time.
These were the most highly trained, technically competent people in the church. The cream of the crop. They were all declared!!!

I suppose it is likely some of the above will have recanted, completed steps A-E, and gone back into the cult. An even greater number will undoubtedly have blown in the meantime. Any updates, additions or corrections would be appreciated.
At the time there were only 19 people on the planet who had completed the Class XII Auditor course. Check the above list. You will find 11 of those 19 had *already* been declared. That’s over half!
It would appear that when you complete the Bridge in Scientology there is a Declare waiting for you.
I would like to bring the list up to date. If anyone has data from official scieno publications after 1983 giving names of people who graduated high level training courses or achieved OT-VII or above, I would be happy to type it in and cross check against a more recent SP list.
In deciding whether a particular belief is supported by evidence it is sometimes hard to evaluate the evidence without being influenced by the belief.
