‎[CLITORAID WATCH] Arrested Development

Clitoraid is running almost 2 more than 4 years behind schedule but more than doubled its initial budget building the Pleasure Hospital.

The Pleasure Hospital was supposed to have been inaugurated back in January 2011 as announced on 23 March 2010.

On 4 January 2011... "Clitoraid has almost completed construction of the very first “Pleasure Hospital” in Bobo Dioulasso, Burkina Faso."

However, a month later on 4 February 2011... “ We are now *half way* through the construction of our 'pleasure hospital' in Bobo Dioulasso, Burkina faso, where we will welcome women of the area and of West Africa to be repaired for free

Then in Nov 2011, they said it "should open in 2012". Here, they say "by the end of 2012".  This press release from 08 March 2012 also says "later this year".

*LATEST NON-DEVELOPMENT* (updated 17 April 2015)

As far as 17 June 2013 from their press releases, they had stated " The Kamkasso hospital, which was built for this purpose, will be inaugurated on October 8th in Burkina Faso, West Africa."

But then a month later, in a 8 July 2013 press release, it was stated: "Clitoraid plans to open [the pleasure hospital] in Burkina Faso, West Africa, in March 2014, which will be the first of its kind in the world."

And what do you know, in a 3 March 2014 press release, it was stated: "pressure from the Catholic Church and other detractors of the International Raelian Movement (IRM) has caused Burkina Faso's government to block the scheduled March 7 opening of Clitoraid’s clitoral repair hospital." President of Clonaid, Brigitte Boisselier further explained, “Nevertheless, we will go ahead with our inauguration ceremony as planned. And our surgical team will still operate on the patients scheduled for the procedure, but that will take place at another hospital."

But days later, in a 13 March 2014 press release, it was announced: "Medical licenses previously granted to the American medical staff of Clitoraid ..[ ].. have been revoked in Burkina Faso due to “blatant discrimination against the Raelian Movement."

Months later, in an open letter to the First Lady of Burkina Faso in 13 October 2014, it was declared: "We eagerly wish to inaugurate our hospital on February 6, 2015, a day that the UN has decreed, "Zero Tolerance Day for FGM."

6 February 2015 has long since passed. :/

Here are the financial records for 2006 - 2014 (strangely, records for 2010 weren't disclosed).

Announcement on in March 14 2011: "The total cost to build the facility and supply it with medical equipment is $200,000."

Latest announcement as of December 2012: "The total cost to build the facility and supply it with medical equipment is $450,000. At this time, $350,000 have already been raised and $100,000 is missing to complete the project. "

The latest (non-)update of their FAQ page states: "The Pleasure Hospital will be inaugurated on March 8th 2014, however $100,000 is still needed each year for its maintenance and continued medical operation."

Bad Astronomy and Raelism

According to Rael, the Elohim's star/planet is about a little less than 1 light-year away from Earth. (Intelligent Design, p. 89)

But, the closest known star is Proxima Centauri and which is 4.2 light-years away.

To explain away this anomaly, Rael came up with a *NEW* Raelian idea that NOTHING IS CONSTANT IN THE UNIVERSE in a FAQ in his 4th book (Let's Welcome the ETs) published in 1979. It is NOT part of the "Messages" as in "dictated to Rael by the Elohim".

Rael wrote:
"Scientific members of our movement have put forth an hypothesis: the distance between their planet and ours could be about four light years by following the light, which could be moving in a pronounced curve, but would only be one light year away if we travelled in a straight line. That is a possibility." (p. 234)
It's a possibility indeed, BUT a very slim one since we're talking about a curvature 4 times longer than the "actual" distance!!... it'll look like the silhouette of a penis with tiny balls. : P

He then added:
"I might add that light does not move at the same speed in all strata of the universe, because nothing is invariable, neither in space nor time." (p. 234)

Sure enough, BUT it was Yahweh who spoke of his "home planet" in clearly defined terms of a uniform speed of light:
"The parasang is a unit of measurement just like the parsec, which stands for the distance that light can travel in one second, which is about 300,000 kilometers. Our planet is 30,000,000 parasangs away from Earth or about nine thousand billion kilometers, just a little less than a light year." (pp. 88-89) LOL


Rael perpetuates the 10% myth... while this may be true for Rael personally, the rest of us happily use all of our brains. LOL


Also, Rael's Sensual "in-dept brain-washing" Meditation technique is allegedly a rip-off of the Silva Mind Control self-help method

[RAELIAN DISINFO] Einstein invented the Atomic Bomb

Had Einstein known how his invention was to be used, he would never have allowed it. When he did realize, it was too late: The organized brutes of the military were already flying their fortresses toward Hiroshima. -Rael (Geniocracy, p. 4)

Einstein did NOT invent the Atomic Bomb.

However, Einstein's greatest role in the invention of the atomic bomb was his indirect signing of a letter to President Franklin Roosevelt urging that the bomb be built to stop the Nazis! 

In 1939, a group of Hungarian scientists that included Hungarian emigre physicist Leó Szilárd attempted to alert Washington of ongoing Nazi atomic bomb research. The group's warnings were discounted. Einstein and Szilárd, along with other refugees such as Edward Teller and Eugene Wigner, "regarded it as their responsibility to alert Americans to the possibility that German scientists might win the race to build an atomic bomb, and to warn that Hitler would be more than willing to resort to such a weapon." In the summer of 1939, a few months before the beginning of World War II in Europe, Einstein was persuaded to lend his prestige by writing a letter with Szilárd to President Franklin D. Roosevelt to alert him of the possibility. The letter also recommended that the U.S. government pay attention to and become directly involved in uranium research and associated chain reaction research.

Einstein biographer Ronald Clark has observed that the atomic bomb would have been invented without Einstein's letters, but that without the early U.S. work that resulted from the letters, the a-bombs might not have been ready in time to use during the war on Japan (Clark, pg. 682-683).

Einstein later expressed regret about his letter to Roosevelt. In 1947, Einstein wrote an article for The Atlantic Monthly arguing that the United States should not try to pursue an atomic monopoly, and instead should equip the United Nations with nuclear weapons for the sole purpose of maintaining deterrence.

Looks like Rael relies on popular myths instead to support his ramblings. LOL

Albert Einstein's political views


You will date your writings counting the year 1946 as “year one”, after Claude Rael, the last of the prophets. Then 1976 is therefore year 31 after Claude Rael, or year 31 of the era of Aquarius, or year 31 of the age of the Apocalypse, or year 31 of the golden age. (Intelligent Design, p. 206)

The Bible quote from Zephaniah 1:10 does NOT refer to the Constellation of Pisces but an actual gate to the Old Temple called the "Fish Gate". It acquired its name from where fish were sold, or the fish market. The actual verse reads:
And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills. (Zephaniah 1:10)
Rael's books were originally written in French and he certainly quoted from a French version of the King James Bible and therefore conflating the French word for fish with Pisces of the zodiac. The current English version of Rael's books contains a footnote (number 19, p. 379) admitting that Rael had deliberately distorted the English KJV Bible verse by leaving the French word pisces in order to claim a connection to the Age of Pisces. In French, both "fish" and "Pisces" are "poisson".

The Bible verse is NOT a prophesy of the creation of the State of Israel, nor the birth of the Messiah.

Furthermore, 1946 is NOT the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. It was Jean Sendy who is among the very few who asserts that the Age of Aquarius began in 1950. Check out Jean Sendy's books comparison with those of Claude Vorilhon Rael.

If an "Age" lasts 2,160 years and most scholars place Jesus' birth between 6 and 4 BCE, then the Age of Aquarius should begin on the years between 2154 to 2156 CE. LOL


Note: Initially, the Raelian Movement counted the years using the notation A.R. (after Rael). But now, they use the notation A.H. (after Hiroshima) with 1945, the year when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, as year 0.
