Is Tom Cruise a naive idiot or what?

I know this is an old issue, but is it just me or is Tom Cruise the most naive person on the planet? Well it's not exclusively him, there's also John Travolta and many other stars that take part in the load of crap otherwise known as Scientology. Here's a brief summary of how the Church of Scientology believes that humans came to live on this earth:

Xenu (sometimes Xemu) is introduced as an alien ruler of the "Galactic Confederacy" who, 75 million years ago, brought billions of people to Earth in DC-8-like spacecraft, stacked them around volcanoes and blew them up with hydrogen bombs. Their souls then clustered together and stuck to the bodies of the living, and they continue to do this today, wreaking havoc in the process. Hubbard called these clustered spirits "Body Thetans," and the advanced levels place considerable emphasis on isolating them and neutralizing their ill effects.

Sounds to me like L. Ron Hubbard, the creator of scientology, was a fan of Star Trek and had a little too much time on his hands. He proceeded to invent the most ridiculous story I've ever heard. I'd sooner believe in Star Wars than believe in this load of crap. What even remotely small clue to we have that this ever happened? Apparently a part of the story was actually taken from an aborted film Script that the founder of Scientology had written called Revolt in the Stars.
Simultaneously, the planted charges erupted. Atomic blasts ballooned from the craters of Loa, Vesuvius, Shasta, Washington, Fujiyama, Etna, and many, many others. Arching higher and higher, up and outwards, towering clouds mushroomed, shot through with flashes of flame, waste and fission. Great winds raced tumultuously across the face of Earth, spreading tales of destruction. Debris-studded, and sickly yellow, the atomic clouds followed close on the heels of the winds. Their bow-shaped fronts encroached inexorably upon forest, city and mankind, they delivered their gifts of death and radiation. A skyscraper, tall and arrow-straight, bent over to form a question mark to the very idea of humanity before crumbling into the screaming city below...
— L. Ron Hubbard, Revolt in the Stars treatment (part of a movie script)
You can tell a religion is accurate when its founder bases it on a movie script he once wrote. I'm sure by now Hubbard is filthy rich, which was probably the idea in the first place: get as many idiots as possible into believing this garbage. Now Tom has pulled Katie into it as well, who, I forgot to mention, should leave him ASAP before he traps her in his web. By the way, that picture is the high tech space plane that Hubbard said brought the billions of people to earth. Looks a bit familiar, no?
