Scientologists’ secret underground base in New Mexico is marked by huge symbols visible only from the air
According to The Sun, and a new book, Church of Fear (scheduled to be published in 2013), the Church of Scientology has built a huge underground bunker (called Trementina Base in reference to the nearby community of Trementina) located deep underground in the New Mexico desert. The “alien space cathedral” acts as a vault for Scientology members and their belongings and was built to ensure their survival when a nuclear holocaust wipes out humanity. The site is marked by large symbols etched onto the desert floor, two diamonds surrounded by a pair of overlapping circles, that are only visible from the air. A private airstrip, built to serve the church’s leaders, is within walking distance of the symbol.
