The Raelian Movement: A UFO & Cloning Based Religion
Taken from our friends from Wikipedia;
“Raëlism[a] (also known as Raëlianism or the Raëlian movement) is a UFO religion that was founded in 1974 by Claude Vorilhon (b. 1946), now known as Raël.[b] The Raëlian Movement teaches that life on Earth was scientifically created by a species of humanoid extraterrestrials, which they call the "Elohim". Members of this species appeared human when having personal contacts with the descendants of the humans that they made. They purposefully misinformed early humanity that they were angels, cherubim, or gods. Raëlians believe that humans were created by extraterrestrials who informed humans of each era. The founder of Raëlism believes he received the final message of the Elohim and that its purpose is to inform the world about Elohim and that if humans become aware and peaceful enough, they wish to be welcomed by them.”
So, what on earth is all this about?
When you google the Raelian Movement - some absolutely wild stuff comes up. Such as the pictures below;
Seeing these images, naturally got me very interested in what this movement is about. While they are not the crazy sexy cult that some have reported on - it never the less is a super interesting interview where we discuss how evolution has been disproved (apparently), immortality through cloning and the fact that we may be a mere experiment for superior beings to study.
