Raëlian Church


Raëlian Church


MADECH, Raëlism, Raelian Foundation


Claude Vorilhon (1946-), aka "Raël"


Claude Vorilhon, aka "Raël"


France


Geneva, Switzerland


The group’s official site states that “On the 13th of December 1973, French journalist Rael was contacted by a visitor from another planet, and asked to establish an Embassy to welcome these people back to Earth....The messages dictated to Rael explain that life on Earth is not the result of random evolution, nor the work of a supernatural ’God’. It is a deliberate creation, using DNA, by a scientifically advanced people who made human beings literally ‘in their image’....References to these scientists and their work, as well as to their symbol of infinity, can be found in the ancient texts of many cultures.”


Raëlians advocate human cloning and a promiscuous lifestyle, among other controversial viewpoints. They seem determined to seek attention from the general public through promotion of outrageous and offensive ideas and initiatives.
