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:
