    Ten thousand scientologists are expected to descend on Clearwater, Florida this weekend for the grand opening of a 'cathedral' which has been under construction for 15 years.

    The $145million Flag Building is a massive seven-story, 377,000-square-foot complex and the tallest building in Clearwater, which is the 'spiritual headquarters' of the 59-year-old religion.

    The opening of the building on Sunday will mark the first time Scientologists have had a space to receive 'Super Power' training - a program developed by the religion's founder L Ron Hubbard in the 1970s.

    Grand opening: Scientology's Flag Building in Clearwater, Florida is set to open this Sunday

    Celebration: Most of this weekend's activities will take place in a gigantic tent erected near the building


    The Super Power course was developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and promises to boost a person's perceptions or senses through a series of mental and physical tasks.

    Scientologists believe that in addition to the five senses of hearing, sight, touch, taste and smell we have 57 additional abilities known as 'perceptics'.

    These include an ability to sense blood circulation, balance, compass direction, temperature, gravity as well as an 'awareness of importance, unimportance.'

    In his writings Hubbard described the course as: 'A superfantastic, but confidential series of rundowns that can be done on anyone whether Dianetic clear or not that puts the person into fantastic shape unleashing the super power of a thetan.

    'This is the means that puts Scientologists into a new realm of ability enabling them to create the new world. It puts world clearing within reach in the future.

    'It consists of 12 separate high-power rundowns which are brand-new and enter realms of the tech never before approached.'

    Hubbard had originally wanted to offer the course in 1978 but many of his staff who had been through the instructor training left the church on completion of the course.

    In a written statement, church spokesman Ben Shaw said: 'Super Power is a series of spiritual counseling processes designed to give a person back his own viewpoint, increase his perception, exercise his power of choice, and greatly enhance other spiritual abilities.'

    The group broke ground on the Mediterranean Revival-style building in 1998, but stopped work after finishing the shell.

    For three years, the group ceased construction on the project until the city started imposing $250-a-day fines for code violations.

    Scientology defectors have explained that the building's slow construction is due to church leader's who have used the project as a fundraising cash cow.

    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

    I wonder if they have cells and a work camp for disgruntled Sea Org members in the basement? Or a cell for David Miscavagie's wife, who no one has seen in public for years?

    How much do they charge people to get bitten by radioactive spiders or suffer industrial accidents involving nuclear waste and cosmic rays?

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
