Rael's Elohim Tight-lipped about Top Secrets

Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway
Rael has a new conspiracy  theory website called Elohim Leaks where he periodically publishes "top secret" messages from the Elohim, the so-called "advanced, extraterrestrial scientists who created all life on Earth, including us."

The website claims that:
"the Elohim are still watching everything that happens on Earth. No so-called “top secret” information is secret from them, and there is nothing any individual, group or government body can do to change that."
To date, 8 "leaks" have been published with the latest one claiming that:
"the 60 richest people on Earth are now secretly building an underground complex that can withstand any nuclear, chemical or biological world war or world revolution." 
In a bid to eradicate nuclear war, the message concludes with:
"It’s a top priority for peace lovers to find and destroy such a place to prevent any escape for these 60 people. They are the 0.000001% who own the planet, and they will want it for themselves after financing a world war that would destroy the rest of humanity. If they have no place to escape to, they will stop financing the next nuclear world war."
However, the problem is, as with the rest of the Elohim Leaks, Rael doesn't divulge vital information, such as where exactly this underground complex is being built!! LOL
"The location is of course top secret; even the people who will be accepted in this complex will never know the precise location until they arrive there safely. There is a strong suspicion that it may be hidden behind, connected to, or close to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault financed by Bill Gates, the Rockefeller family, Monsanto and others."
With the likes of billionaires such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and George Soros being Raelian Honorary Guides, there might be a small conflict of interest here against being completely forthcoming with confidential information. LOL

Rael's Progressive Patronizing Parasitism of Science

The paper titled NEW RELIGIOUS MOVEMENTS AND SCIENCE: RAEL'S PROGRESSIVE PATRONIZING PARASITISM by Stefano Bigliardi appears in the journal of religion and science, Zygon® (March 2015, Volume 50, Issue 1, pages 64–83).

The abstract as published is as follows:
The article examines the concoction of religion and “science” contained in the revelation that substantiates a new religion: Raelianism, founded and led by the prophet Claude Vorilhon/Rael after having received a revelation in 1974. After a detailed examination both of Rael's prophetic message and his/the Raelians’ interpretative practices, an ad hoc model is presented to describe such concoction (“progressive patronizing parasitism”), and it is compared to other models. It is in particular claimed that Rael, while seemingly talking about “science,” is actually constructing a science-fictional and even pseudoscientific narrative. The article finally raises the question whether the discussion of the science–religion interaction from the viewpoint of traditional religions can be considered to be immune to the usage of such rhetorical devices.
The paper describes how Rael engages with the concept of science/technology and uses 3 interrelated aspects to make Raelian doctrine appear to be scientific (and therefore, rational and factual), that of being (1) progressive, (2) patronizing, and (3) parasitic. The following is an overview, expressed in my own understanding, of what Dr. Bigliardi means by using these specific terms:

[RAEL FAIL] The END GAME and Secret Israeli Conspiracies

It is a Raelian tradition that every year, between the evening of August 5th to the early hours of the 6th, Rael allegedly receives a telepathic message from his alleged ET father, Yahweh. This year, the message contains 2 basic points:
(1) the chance of Humanity self-destructing is now 99.5%, and
(2) the Elohim has withdrawn its protection over the State of Israel and urges all people of Jewish descent to flee Israel.
The first part of the latest revelation was announced by Rael in a speech on August 6th he delivered in Okinawa to his followers. You can view the speech on You Tube.

In it, Rael declares at the 2:20 mark of the video how the US had committed the "most criminal crime against humanity of [sic.] all history of humanity" for killing over 300,000 people in an instance by dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He then says that "nobody ever killed 300,000 persons in 1 second." At 3:18, he says that the US was worse than Adolf Hitler and his Nazi regime, since the latter couldn't exterminate as efficiently than the former.

Trouble is, according to Raelian scriptures, the alleged scientific creators of life on this planet, the Elohim, had used deadly atomic bombs to kill countless more humans on several occasions:
"The government [of the Elohim] then decided from their distant planet to destroy all life on Earth by sending nuclear missiles." (The Flood, p. 20, Intelligent Design)
"[The Elohim] warned those who were peaceful to leave the city because they were going to destroy it with an atomic explosion." (Sodom and Gomorrah, p. 23)
"At a given moment, the ultrasounds were emitted in a synchronized way, and the walls fell down. A little later, some real bombing took place. [..] This full scale bombing, as indicated, killed more people than the swords of the Israelites." (The Trumpets of Jericho, p. 33)
The last example of the Elohim's aggression above is ironic due to the fact in the second and official part of the latest revelation addressed to the "Jewish people", as published on, Rael/Yahweh declares:
"You have betrayed all the exemplary values of Judaism by stealing the land and houses which don’t belong to you, and especially by not respecting my most important commandment: “Thou shall not kill” and accumulating nuclear weapons capable of killing millions of people in one go and sparking off a world war capable of destroying all of our creation."
The Battle of Jericho took place long after Moses was given the commandments contained in the Torah. There are numerous recorded killings by the Elohim/Yahweh (directly, or ordered to men to kill) in the Bible. It's estimated the total number is 25 million, with 20 million accounting for the Flood.

Towards the end of his speech at 17:00, Rael assures his followers how the Elohim will come and save all Raelians. With "over 90,000" Raelians worldwide, it is fast approaching the limit of 144,000, i.e. of how many will be saved according to Raelian scriptures (The Apocalypse of the Final Nuclear Cataclysm, p. 298).

Rael ends his speech by reminding his followers how the Elohim, follow everyone and records everything each person does, in a creepy Big Brotherly way, yet to feel their love and light guiding the special Raelian diamonds that they are.

Given a prediction each year of the chance Humanity will self-destruct, isn't it odd when faced with a 99% chance, it doesn't? Rael claims at 7:10, that this statistic is from the "most advanced computer in the universe of Elohim". After all, it does rain if our lowly earth-based computers and meteorologists predict a 99% chance of rain tomorrow. LOL

In the second part of this year's alleged telepathic message, Rael/Yahweh makes a distinction among "real Jews", "true Jews" and "false Jews". The "real Jews" are the people who are from the Levant and whose ancestors didn't leave to other parts of the world in the Diaspora. The "true Jews" are the Raelians, who are anti-Zionist and who want to build the Third Temple, i.e. the Embassy for the Elohim. And the "false Jews" are the descendants of Jews who migrated to Europe and who comprise the bulk of the Zionist movement.

Rael/Yahweh urges "real Jews" to flee Israel and "live among the other Nations of Earth while refusing to carry arms for any nation and to benefit every nation with their genius and creativity" because the Elohim will no longer "protect" Israel.

Raelian scriptures hold that the Jews are the most intelligent "race" of humans because they were designed that way, and additionally the offspring of unions between the Elohim and Jewish women. (Genesis, p. 18; The Flood, p. 19; The People of Israel and the Jews, p. 230) However, we know that a very disproportionate number of Nobel Prize winners are the "false Jews" of European descent.

It's interesting to note how Rael's biological father, Marcel, was a European Jew from Alsace, France, according to Rael's aunt, Therese Vorilhon. (Susan Palmer, Aliens Adored, p. 32)

Rael/Yahweh accuses "false Jews" of stealing Palestinian land, bombing "the concentration camp which is Gaza and are even projecting a final solution with the goal of Palestinian genocide."

It's again interesting to note that, according to Raelian scriptures, the creation of the State of Israel is one sign of the "Apocalypse", the time of great scientific progress and the return of the Elohim (The End of the World, p. 81). It is claimed that Rael was conceived, through artificial insemination by the Elohim, on December 25th, 1945 (My Life before the First Encounter, p. 123)... at a time *before* the UN General Assembly proposed to divide Palestine into an Arab and Jewish state on November 29, 1947, and subsequent declaration of an independent State of Israel on May 14th, 1948. The Zionist movement began in the late 19th century and continued well after 1973 when Rael was first allegedly contacted by the Elohim to be their Messiah. In other words, the Elohim have knowingly protected Zionism and never declared before how the Palestinians are "in fact mostly the descendants of real Jews who converted to Islam a very long time ago." Rael's original books never bothered to mention the injustices caused by the creation of the State of Israel.

Rael/Yahweh urges "real Jews" to convert to Raelianism as soon as possible. That'll hasten the number of Raelian to approach the limit, though.

And now that Rael is 70 years old and having failed to construct the Embassy in Israel, is now pretending to take away some "protection" that never existed in the first place. Had Israel given permission to build the Embassy, would the Elohim be so unprincipled to accept such an offer from people they clearly despise?

What "protection" is needed when Israel has 200 atomic bombs, as Rael claims in the August 6th speech (at the 13:16 mark)? Rael further claims of an Israeli secret plan, called the "Masada Project", to start WWIII by sending off atomic bombs if attacked by neighboring countries. But, isn't it ironic for the Elohim to remove the protection without which such a scenario might not take place in the Raelian mind?

To further bolster his doomsday claims, Rael has recently commented on Facebook under the hashtag #ELOHIMLEAKS, a series of secret Israeli conspiracies by Mossad to kill all Palestinians and himself, as exposed by the Elohim, and of course telepathically to him only. LOL

Looks like the Raelian Movement has entered the final stages of Rael's mission. Rael is likely to crunch up his doomsday propaganda as he ages with Raelians ready to drop everything to be "lifted up" into the Elohim's spacecrafts. With Rael suddenly dead, possibly more by suicide, his followers are likely to kill themselves too in the conviction that the Elohim will save them by recreating them through cloning from cell samples that they know the Elohim must surely have obtained beforehand... just like they'd believe Rael was also saved and is alive awaiting reunification in the Planet of Eternal Life. :/

[RAEL FAIL] Geniocracy and Humanitarianism replaced by Direct Democracy and Paradism

One of the fundamental tenets of Raelism is to establish Geniocracy, which is a form of a selective representative government comprised exclusively of super-intelligent people (having an IQ above 50% of the average) elected by an above-average intelligent electorate (having an IQ above 10% of the average). The rationale behind this imperative dictated in 1974 is that:
Votes only have a positive effect when there is an equivalence of knowledge and intellect. Copernicus was condemned by a majority of incompetent people because he was the only one at that time who had a sufficiently high level of comprehension. Although the Church- that is to say the majority - believed the Earth was the center of the universe, this turned out to be wrong. The Earth really revolved around the sun, and Copernicus - the minority - turned out to be right. (Intelligent Design, p. 96)
In his book dedicated to the subject published in 1978, Rael writes:
And why are those governing us so incompetent? 
They’re  incompetent  because  they  were  elected  for  their  job democratically. Pure democracy cannot take voter intelligence into account, which means the voice of an Einstein is given no greater weight than that of an idiot. And since there are far more idiots than Einsteins,  we  find  ourselves  under  the  dictatorship  of  idiocy. (Geniocracy, p. xv)
In other words, Rael is alluding to the dangers in the tyranny of the masses, wherein the majority of a population not only may place its interests above those of an individual or minority group, constituting active oppression comparable to that of tyrants and despots, but how the majority necessarily gravitates towards average intelligence which he dismisses collectively as "idiots". Geniocracy, then, is essentially a "dictatorship of genius".

Geniocracy assumes that a minority of geniuses will always be fair and make the right decisions for all concerned... kind of like a benevolent dictator of sorts who would take care of the people who can't help themselves because of their inferior intelligence.

Yet, in Rael's latest book published in 2001, that focuses on the paradisaical world we could soon achieve through technology, much like the advanced civilization of the creator-ETs known as the Elohim in the mythos of Raelism, he hypocritically advocates Pure Democracy through the use of the Internet:
People could go to a Web page that would display the latest information on old laws which need revision or amending, and new laws which require approval. The Web page could include each party’s position on these laws, as well as links to the advice of specialists in the field. Then, every citizen would be able to vote directly via the internet.
The government should be ready to accept and implement the decisions made by the population.

This is a true direct democracy made possible by technology.. [ ].. 
This  will ensure a true democracy by which the people can only gain. (Yes to Human Cloning, pp. 85-86)

Peruvian UFO (High-altitude Kite) Supports ET Embassy, Raelians Say

A recent press release by IRM claims that the Elohim (ETs, Raelians believe created life on Earth) have lent their support for the first ever South American "Happiness Academy" because it can't be coincidence that a UFO just happened to have appeared and hovered for more than 2 hours over Lima’s Miraflores neighborhood while the Raelians were holding a press conference nearby on 10 February!

The press release includes a video link released by Eduardo Chávez Guerra of the alleged UFO. Here's an HD screen-cap of the UFO:

Screen-cap from Free_Spirit's video

Incredible, you might think... and you'd be right since last year on 11 April, a similar UFO sighting occurred in the Netherlands, in the town of Maassluis, and captured on video by a man named Dick Smits. Here's a screen-cap of the UFO:

Screen-cap from RTV Rijnmond's report

After some investigation by the good peeps at Metabunk, it turns out that high-altitude kites, known as rokkaku dako, have often been used for KAP (kite aerial photography) in the precise location. These large kites are pretty stable and so appear to hover in the ski. The kite in this incident was above the port of Rotterdam. A Dutch KAP enthusiast named Hansel Elbers posted a pic of the port on his Flickr taken from his kite:

Hansel's KAP of Rotterdam port
This image is from the video claiming it's a UFO shows the very same cranes at the port:

Screen-cap from the video by Dick Smits
An amused Hansel even noted that his kite has been misidentified and gone viral as a UFO in a KAP forum. Here's a Google translated screen-cap (click to enlarge):

Screen-cap from Hansel's KAP forum
Here's a tweet by Hansel to the media company that released Dick Smit's video:

Hansel's tweet to RTV Rijnmond
And, here's Hansel's rokkaku dako from his Flickr:

Hansel's rokkaku dako
Pretty much case closed for this "UFO sighting". LOL

Now, what's interesting is how almost identical the Lima, Miraflores UFO is to the debunked Dutch case above except for the colors:
Bottom-left: Dutch kite - Center: Miraflores UFO
Turns out, thanks for the investigation by the good peeps at Above Top Secret, that a Peruvian kite enthusiast named Aurelio Rodriguez spotted a rokkaku dako on the day the Miraflores sighting occurred and left a comment under a You Tude video of a TV report:
Edited Translation: 
"Gentlemen, it is a large kite that was being flown from the Costanera Avenue, "at the foot of the cliff" of the Costa Verde, as Julio Ramón Ribeyro would say. I was lucky to be passing by this street at that same time, going from south to north direction airport, and I could see it up and close (I took a photo and video with my cell phone). I must admit that at first, when I saw it from afar (from a distance of at least four kilometers) I was struck by its large size and its stability (a cute kite, I think it's a version of the "Hergraves Box Kite" ). If you take a stroll along the fancy fair in Costa Verde (where they built the "Paris-Dakar Race Village" a few months ago) and ask the people working at the site, they will confirm my story, and perhaps you get to see the comet again. Excuse me for being a spoilsport but much of my job revolves around observing flying objects ..."
After being contacted, Aurelio provided the following screen-caps from his video of the kite:

Screen-caps from Aurelio's video
The color scheme matches perfectly with the alleged UFO in the Eduardo video and Aurelio's rokkaku dako;

So, it seems the Raelians have made a big faux pas on this one! LOL

Raelism vs. Science: Raelian Baptism NOT validated by Science

From Oh no, Ross and Carrie

A Raelian website titled Scientific Raelian published an article last year claiming that the Raelian ritual of the Transmission of the Cellular Plan (TCP) or Raelian Baptism has been validated by science.

The Raelian article explains:
Raelian baptism is understood as a wireless transmission of the baptized individual's genome to an orbiting computer set up by the Elohim to record the information at the precise time of the ceremony.
In 1979, Marcel Terrusse, a chemical engineer and Raelian Guide, suggested that future science would be able to read human genomes by some kind of spectral analysis, every DNA sequence having distinct vibrational (sic.) properties. This hypothesis was largely dismissed as preposterous by mainstream scientists at the time.
The Raelian article then proceeds to link an article from the MIT Technology Review as evidence that Raelian Baptisms are scientifically plausible. It claims:
Today, 35 years later, Russian scientists have reported being able to distinguish DNA molecules based on how they vibrate. According to their research, DNA oligonucleotides resonate at frequencies in the terahertz range, which vary depending on the DNA sequence. Evidently, the method is still in its infancy and has only be applied to 50 and 100 nucleotide long DNA fragments so far. However, the proof of concept has now been established. (emphasis mine)
Following the link, one discovers how intellectually dishonest Raelian scientists are in their claims. It turns out that the Russian scientists did NOT identify the DNA oligonucleotides from wave-particles emitted by the molecules themselves, i.e. that they recorded the vibration and electromagnetic radiation that might naturally emit from molecules. Rael had written back in 1975 implicating that such waves could be recorded by the Elohim's computer orbiting the Earth. It is understood from Rael's writing that some kind of wave is constantly being emitted from a person that is transmitted to the Elohim's computer that records it.

Rather, the Russian scientists took "a short, single strand of DNA, [and zapped] it with terahertz waves and [watched] how it [vibrated]." The scientists basically blasted a strand of DNA with terahertz radiation and measured the reflected resonance that bounced off the oligonucleotides in order to identify them. In Raelian terms, this would mean the Elohim's computer picking up the resonance from a person after the former sends out some kind of energy towards the subject.

The MIT article explains:
Chernev and co’s idea is based on the way these molecules resonate. They say that the sequence of bases in an oligonucleotide determines the way in which the strand resonates at frequencies in the terahertz range. Their idea is to capture a single oligonucleotide in a cavity filled with terahertz waves that stimulates this resonant behaviour.
They begin by producing a signal as close as possible to the resonant mode. By measuring the output from this cavity, they can determine when the input spectra exactly matches the resonant modes of the molecule. That tells them exactly what sort of oligonucleotide they have.
The Raelian article references Raelian Bishop Guide, Marcel Terrusse's essay on this subject that appears in Rael book published in 1979. There, he mentions spectroscopy that can distinguish elementary particles after electrons emit light after being agitated by heat or another form of energy. It seems that a human body would have to be burned or electrocuted in order for such emissions to occur! Spectroscopy can also be used on radioactive elements or on hot objects such as stars. Terrusse also mentions nuclear magnetic resonance, which also requires an intense magnetic force bombarded on atomic nuclei to resonate the force back in order to capture an image (MRIs work on that principle). Yet, Terrusse concludes, "Thus the human body is an electric and electromagnetic wave emitter." (Intelligent Design, pp. 332-334)

One of the central tenets in the Raelian belief is that "huge computers" record every person's actions since conception to death in order to choose who will be worthy of eternal life (p. 171, 175, 192, 298). It assumes that these computers can record thoughts (and any brain activity). Raelism also holds the belief in telepathy and how long hair can facilitate the transmission of thoughts between people over a distance acting as an antenna (p. 36). However, for such a transmissions to occur, proximity to Earth is crucial since according to Rael's writings, the Ark of the Covenant was actually a strong nuclear-powered transmitter-receiver that facilitated inter-planetary communication between humans and the Elohim (p. 37). In the Raelian baptism ritual, an initiated Guide wets his/her hand and places one on the forehead and the other to the back of the devotee's neck to "establish a good electrical contact" according to Terrusse (p. 334), after which the Guide in intense thoughtfulness with eyes closed utters the words, "The Elohim has recognized you!" as if to telepathically seal the new initiate's fate.

One wonders why such pompous fanfare is required when the all-powerful Elohim's huge computers could establish who has become Raelian from their private thoughts alone. LOL

Rael's NON-VIOLENT NON-FATAL legal action

Rael says that to be non-violent does not mean we give up our rights to self-defense. He says, if someone intends to kill us, then we should render our assailant powerless through force if necessary, but never with the intent to kill. (Intelligent Design, p. 204)

But, at the same time, Rael says Raelians should sue people who defame or offend Rael and Raelism (please refer to Contact 252 which is also referenced in White Knights 2). A legal suit, for Rael, is the appropriate non-violent action of self-defense. For Rael, that's using one's strength non-violently; it's to reduce the power of someone who verbally attacks Rael by any non-fatal means. Rael's "means" here is the "non-violent" use of money. And not surprisingly, Rael has a good track record of suing his opponents left and right. A good portion of the IRM's (International Raelian Movement) budget is allocated to paying for legal fees.


So wait... what's the result of such a legal action? Money as compensation for slander/libel. Does this mean, people who defamed Rael actually stopped him from getting richer?? If a court decides in favor of Rael, he makes money while the accused loses money. Is that fair? How exactly did the accused harm Rael and his club? Did they steal Rael's money or infringed on his copyrights to make money? Or, did they just throw words at Rael? 
Shouldn't Rael and his minions retaliate with intellectual debate and public protests (burning my notes, for example) instead of taking legal action whenever someone unjustifiably offends or defames them? Isn't Rael using the power of money to silence his critics and take away their rights of speech... and even harming them emotionally and physically, especially when there is no evidence for defamation?

Is it my right of speech to say Rael is lying when he claims he met the Elohim? Am I lying? Am I defaming Raelism? If I believe in abiogenesis and biological evolution to be true, is Rael lying to me with his fantastic story? Is Rael defaming and offending Science instead? All one needs to differentiate who is in the wrong is evidence... Rael has no evidence of his alien encounter while science has ample evidence to back up its robust theories.

Can paying off legal compensation destroy an individual's life? Can it be life-threatening? Is suing someone really a non-violent and non-fatal action of self-defense?

The passage in the Messages advising the use of force in self-defense is actually referring to how to address an immediate threat of physical violence upon a person and not to defamation and/or offensive words. But when Rael justifies suing someone for supposed slander/libel, he is essentially being violent towards a non-violent person in the name of self-defense. However, if someone threatens to physically harm or kill Rael or Raelians, then it is clearly justified to use legal means to diffuse that threat.

With regards to forgiveness, Rael says he forgives those who ask for forgiveness and apologize to him. But, in his book, we find written instead:
Forgive those who have done you harm unintentionally, and bear no grudge against those who have willingly done you harm. They are ill, for one must be ill to harm one’s neighbor. Besides, think how unfortunate those people are, who do harm others, because they will not have the right to eternal life in the gardens of the Elohim. (p.204) 
In other words, the Messages advise Raelians to forgive even before someone asks to forgive them. Defend yourself against this, Rael!

As for Raelians, you are well versed in Rael's preaching of being responsible for every action you take... especially when it results in violence or a fatality. So, know that by giving Rael your money, which he then uses to sue people, you may be then be responsible for causing harm to others unjustifiably.

Advocatus Diaboli

p.s. Aren't Rael's critics helping him get rid of pseudo-Raelians who don't really "understand" the Messages he wrote? That's a "win-win" situation, no? : )
