When he isn’t pontificating about “disunification cosmology” or lying in court, Jeffrey Augustine is spreading hate and bigotry.
Augustine incoherently pontificates about “bubble universes” as the result of a hallucination in which he claims to have divined the secrets of the universe. In a more earthy setting, a judge in a civil legal case repeatedly called out Augustine for lying about a business transaction.

Augustine claims to be a “researcher” but more accurately is described as a conspiracy nut. Augustine is no more a “researcher” or an “expert” than an unemployed internet troll camped out at the nearby Starbucks. He runs his own religious hate website and posts obsessively on the internet using numerous pseudonyms so he can have conversations with himself.
His postings show he’s just another fringe hatemonger, obsessed with Scientology, a religion he was never part of, and specifically obsessed with the leader of the Church—a man Augustine has never met yet describing him in unspeakably lewd terms. Hardly the words of a “researcher.”
Augustine’s credentials as a whack job speak for themselves: His self-published book What Caused the Big Bang? aggressively promotes his crackpot theory he calls “Disunification Cosmology.” Here’s a sample from his description, referring to himself in the third person:
“One day on a drive into the mountains, Augustine was hit with a bolt out of the blue. He had a staggering insight about the event that caused the Big Bang and its implications for human Consciousness. Augustine had what he describes as a ‘massive download from Infinity’ wherein he saw everything. It took a long time to unfold this download and put it into book form. Along the way, Augustine became a Master Mason and a Knight Templar.”
He further explains in even more incoherent terms:
“This image I created is called ’Bubble Universes’ and is meant to convey the sense that bubble universes are finite whereas the Infinity in which they stand is Infinite. Thus, all sub-infinite universes arise from Infinity and collapse back into Infinity. There is a reason why Infinity causes subinfinite universes to arise and I explain that in my book.”
He also writes about “psychic architecture” and the “origin of the universe,” displaying Masonic imagery on his website. Augustine also claims in his resumé, with zero substantiation, to have worked on classified projects involving nuclear-capable guided missiles.
Augustine first began posting on anti-religious hate sites under the pseudonym of “J. Swift” at the end of April 2005. He claimed that he left Scientology several years earlier. A lie. Augustine has never been a Scientologist. He was, however, a light bulb salesman who says he lost his faith in Christianity when he was studying to become a minister. He also claims insight into the event that caused the Big Bang, to have been a Zen Buddhist, a Master Freemason and a Knight Templar. Augustine says he was summoned to Masonry in 2002 by two mysterious and compelling dreams.
In 2008, Augustine joined up with the cyberterrorist group Anonymous, even dragging his son with him to the Anonymous “pickets” to harass Church parishioners. In 2011, his first wife of 20 years filed for divorce. That’s when Augustine hooked up with the equally unhinged de la Carriere, a woman kicked out of the religious order three decades ago and expelled from the Scientology religion when she reverted to the “world’s oldest profession.” Well into her 50s when she left the Church in the 1990s, de la Carriere returned to her roots to support herself, even sending email solicitations to potential clients complete with price lists and photographs. De la Carriere has used 13 different aliases, including the cover name “Snow Suzy.”
Augustine and Karen de la Carriere were exposed as liars by no less than a Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge. In a 2015 legal case unrelated to the Church, Judge Michael Johnson referred to the couple as “not credible” more than half a dozen times, as in, “The testimony by Carriere and her husband Jeffrey Augustine …[referring to this case] is not credible.
In a 2015 legal case unrelated to the Church, Judge Michael Johnson referred to Jeffrey Augustine and Karen de la Carriere more than half a dozen times as “not credible.”
De la Carriere had sued her accountant, William Greene, claiming that a 2003 Promissory Note and Trust Deed that Greene held on her house was a forgery and demanded clear title to her house. Greene filed a cross complaint.
Judge Johnson not only ruled in favor of Greene, he found that de la Carriere’s claim that the 2003 document was a forgery was false, and that she had even had the document notarized.
Judge Johnson’s ruling is packed with statements about de la Carriere’s lack of truthfulness as well as Augustine’s lack of credibility. In short, the court exposed the two of them as pathological liars.
The Court described de la Carriere in this document:
Now, de la Carriere and Augustine, liars to the core, post bizarre rants about the Church under various pseudonyms while peddling stories to tabloids.
