Wednesday, July 19, 2017 scrubs CLONAID

The official site for press releases by the International Raelian Movement (IRM), RaelPress, has scrubbed all news between January 2001 to May 2004 in an apparent attempt to disassociate itself from claims of human clones made by CLONAID during that time. That's the period when the CLONAID hoax was in the limelight.

A search for "clonaid" produces only 6 results from the entire press site. None of the entries make direct references to CLONAID's claim of being the first company to have successfully cloned a human being:

CISION PR Newswire has archived IRM press releases since July 2002.

It's been 20 years since Rael founded CLONAID (initially called Valiant Venture) as a publicity stunt. While it's claimed that the supposed cloning company is completely independent from Rael and the IRM, all of the people involved with the former were indeed all dedicated IRM members.

This pic of Damien still appears
on CLONAID's website
One such person is Damien M., who had devoted 33 years of his life to Rael. With a background in biotechnology, he was used as a poster boy for CLONAID as part of its scientific team.

However, more than a decade later, in early 2016, he was excommunicated by Rael for finally denouncing Raelian Bishop Brigitte Boisselier, who runs CLONAID, for lying to the media about producing human clones (to date, 13 clones have been claimed) to effectively publicize Raelism to the world. In fact, in 2003, Rael gloated about running a successful media campaign that allowed him to reach one of his 2 main goals: to spread the Raelian Messages worldwide (Susan Palmer, Aliens Adored, p. 191). Rael instead accused Damien of lying and making everything up before expelling him from his cult.

[RaelTV FAIL] Doggone it, SIRIUS-ly!

As part of a series of short clips on RaelTV, the Raelian Movement refers to the Dogon tribe of sub-Saharan Africa, as possessing secret knowledge about our galaxy passed down by their ET ancestors/creators thousands of years ago. The clip argues that the Dogons are one of many examples of indigenous peoples from around the world testifying about their origins to be from ETs as fact instead of mythology. This comes from the notion in Rael's writings that humanity's scientific creators, the Elohim of the Bible, left traces of their existence among ancient civilizations across the globe [Intelligent Design, p. 60].

The claim that the Dogons are an exemplary case rests on the subclaim of how it is possible for them to know about a star system 8.6 light-years from here and unseen to the naked eye, that of Sirius A and B, unless the mythological serpent-like amphibious beings known to them traditionally as the Nommos are actually technologically advanced ETs?... and in terms of Raelian confluence, must be the Elohim.

The popularization of these claims in New Age and ancient astronaut literature originates from Robert Temple's book The Sirius Mystery (1976) based on his interpretation of the work of ethnographers Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen. A substantial bulk of The Sirius Mystery consists of comparative linguistic and mythological scholarship, pointing out resemblances among Dogon, Egyptian and Sumerian beliefs and symbols. Greek and Arab myths and words are considered to a lesser extent.

Skeptics question Temple on several grounds: (1) his drawing supposedly by the Dogon depicting the orbit of Sirius B around Sirius A was doctored, (2) the Nommos couldn't have come from the Sirius system, and (3) astronomical knowledge was limited to the time the Dogons first interacted with Europeans in the early 1900s.

[RaelTV FAIL] Piri Reis Map

Years ago, when Rael started his You Tube channel RaelTV, the Raelian Movement produced a series of short clips presenting some interesting information that supposedly challenges conventional knowledge and thus would support their tagline:
"Isn't it time we rewrote our history books?"
 ... implying the Raelian version of history as being true.

The clip showcases a 16th-century map produced by Turkish admiral Piri Reis. It is claimed that the map depicts an outline of Antarctica without its ice caps and that it was drawn 300 years before the modern discovery of that continent.

Bad Archaeology's Keith Fitzpatrick-Matthews points out:
Maps of the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries are a favourite source of information for fringe writers, who use them to make a wide variety of claims. To Erich von Däniken, for instance, they are evidence for a survey of the Earth from space, carried out by extraterrestrials, while for Graham Hancock, they are evidence for an ancient sea-faring civilisation, lost beneath the sea after the melting of glacial ice at the end of the Pleistocene. These writers focus on a relatively small number of such maps, those of Piri Re‘is and Orontius Finaeus being the most used, whilst ignoring others of the same age. All these maps are alleged to show anomalous knowledge for the dates at which they were drawn: the west coast of South America, Antarctica (with or, more frequently, without its ice sheet), the Strait of Magellan and other “impossible” details. This appears to be solid evidence, so why do mainstream historians and archaeologists ignore it?
Fitzparick-Matthews' article traces the origins of this claim, originating not from scholarly studies of the map, but from a geography college teacher by the name of Charles Hapgood (1904-1982). He shows where and how Hapgood got it wrong and that the map in fact did not show Antarctica at all, but the coastline of South America only instead.

How RAELIANS fit in the CONSPIRACY THEORY universe ;)

Did RAEL copy GEORGE ADAMSKI's work?

This is a Google translation of a page from the now defunct French website Rael: Messiah or Liar? Please visit the original site to cross reference this translation with its source material in French.

Claude Adamskilhon or George Vorilhonski?

Analyze the testimony of George Adamski in parallel with that of Claude Vorilhon.

(Page 16)
I am George Adamski, philosopher, student, teacher, interested in the problem of flying saucers .

The second message (" the aliens have taken me to their planet ", page 49)
The extraterrestrial encounters of George Adamski and Claude Vorilhon are, by chance, largely identical. Did Claude Vorilhon plagiarize Adamski?
To find out, let's compare the flying saucer of George Adamski with that of Claude Vorilhon.
A Terran meets an Extra-Terrestrial ... descended from his FLYING SAUCER
George Adamski in 1952
Claude Vorilhon in 1973
The book that tells the truth
FLYING SAUCERS landed "The book that tells the truth " Black and white drawings, pages 122 and 123
It was a wonderful little machine, looking more like a heavy bell of glassas a flying saucer. However I could not see through it, just as one sees through these bricks of glass used in buildingsmodern, which allow a better wall of brick , with all the light entering the house or in the office. This glass was translucent and of an exquisite color.
(Page 249)

When I was closer to the craft, I noticed a ball on top of it , which seemed to me a kind of objective.

Drawing by Claude Vorilhon describing his flying saucer, page 122
Drawing by Claude Vorilhon describing his flying saucer, page 123
It can be seen that the drawings of Claude Vorilhon illustrate admirably the flying saucer ... of George Adamski! Claude Vorilhon has plagiarized Adamski. Moreover, conscious that these sketches, too, pointed out his plagiarism on Adamski, claude Vorilhon thought it better to suppress them in his last editions of the "Book that tells the truth " ...
The flying saucer of George Adamski contained some different details Of that of Claude Vorilhon, which only reinforces plagiarism: plagiarism is not copied in-extenso but partially copied by adding slight variations.
Do you still doubt? Perfect ... let me put my cherry on the cake. (Plagiarized version: place my ball on the dome)
When George Adamski speaks of the structure of his flying saucer floating a few meters in front of him, he writes:
On the face that presented itself to me (...) the wall was smooth "
FLYING SAUCERS landed ", page 251
When George Adamski looks inside his flying saucer (which is fitted with portholes), he writes:
The portholes had to be made of another material because they were transparent "
FLYING SAUCERS landed ", page 251
George Adamski uses the word "wall" and "material", which is perfectly adequate for describing a spacecraft, or any other flying object (helicopter, plane, rocket ...). Claude Vorilhon, on the other hand, talks about the walls of his flying saucer. It is not at all normal to use this term to describe the walls of a flying saucer. When George Adamski talking about walls , it evokes the walls built of bricks of some buildings .
Airplanes, helicopters and, even more, small extraterrestrial spacecraft, have what are usually called walls , or, in a nutshell , a fuselage , Then why, but why, Claude Vorilhon speaks of walls while he is not in a building but in a small spacecraft, like airplane or ultra-advanced helicopter ?! (You would speak about the walls of the Space Shuttle if you were invited on board?!)
The answer is very simple: Claude Vorilhon was trapped by the text he plagiarized!
Put yourself in the place of a plagiar who reads the description of Adamski to retain the good ideas to modify them to produce his plagiarism:
Let's see ..., bell-shaped saucer, good idea ... Glass ... it's too characteristic, we're going to make metal shiny, it's more classic ... Walls of glass that let the light pass ... ah, yes, good idea ... to modify ... We will say ... walls completely transparent, it would be better ... or so ... let's think about doing more Perfected ... ah! I found: walls that becometransparent when seated . Great ! I have my saucer of a new type entirely unpublished: bell-shaped, shiny metal and with walls that become transparent when seated ... " 

DEBUNKED: Rael's claims about the FLOOD

Rael and the lie 

Other proof 

The Deluge

I was really stunned after comparing the sentence from the book Intelligent Design, Book One, “The Book Which Tells The Truth” from Rael (that says that Noah's Arc ascended above the earth and not on the water, to prove that Noah's Arc was a spaceship) 
 the verse from The Restauration of Original Sacred Name Bible since we were told to consult in the Raelian Movement…

First I am citing you an extract from the Bible commented by Rael appearing in his book from which
 an important information has been left out and then, I cite the complete extract appearing in the Bible.The Book Which Tells The Truth: (…) the ark was lifted above the Earth. Genesis 7:17.
As you can clearly see, it is said that the ark was lifted “above” the Earth and
 not “on” the water. Then it was necessary to wait until there was no more dangerous radioactive fallout. 
The Restoration of Original Sacred Name Bible: Genesis 7:17: “and the waters increased and bare up the ark, and it was lifted high above the earth.” Rael left out deliberately the next verse number 18:
and the waters prevailed and increased greatly on the earth, and
 the ark went its way on the face of the waters. 
Do you really believe that the “eloah-Extraterrestrial (E.T.)” who was supposedly explaining the Bible passage to Rael would have forgotten those two important details that contradict the said statement of Rael above?: 

“The waters bare up the ark”
 and “the ark went its way on the face of the waters.” 
The arc: “a ship” or a spaceship? 

Rael says that the deluge was caused by a
 nuclear explosion and that the species were kept in a spaceship that was built for that purpose, here is the extract from his book: 
The Book Which Tells the Truth: The (E.T.-Elohim) government then decided from their distant planet to destroy all life on Earth by sending nuclear missiles. However when the exiles(1) creators were informed of the project they asked Noah to build a spaceship which would orbit the Earth during the cataclysm containing a pair of each species that was to be preserved. When the explosion took place, life had already been preserved a few thousand kilometers above the Earth. The continent was submerged by a gigantic tidal wave, which destroyed all forms of life on its surface.Cause of the deluge The Sumerian writings translated by Sitchin(2), that date much before the writings of the Bible, tell us this: That the deluge was caused by the periodical arrival of the 12th planet of our solar system that triggered, amongst other things the slippage of the ice cap that was already unstable at that time.(3) 
Noah and his submarine In Mesopotamia, for the first time ever, a man was elevated to the status of king: Noah,(4) Enki,(5) a god-Anounnaki-Elohim, saw in Noah the chance to save Mankind. He gave him instructions for the construction of a ship and told him: “Aboard ship take thou the seed of all living things.
The ship as to be a
 submersible vessel, a “submarine” that could withstand the avalanche of water. The Sumerian texts contain so many details like the dimensions and other structural instructions that it is possible to draw the ship. He was instructed to direct the vessel toward the “Mount of Salvation,” Mount Ararat; as the highest range in the Near East, its peaks would be the first to emerge from under the waters.(6) 
The term used in Hebrew to denote a submarine 
The Akkadian text quotes Enki as calling for a boat “roofed over and below”, hermetically sealed with “tough pitch.” There were to be no decks, no openings, “so that the sun shall not see inside.” It was to be a boat “like an Apsu boat,” a sulili, it is the very term used nowadays in Hebrew (soleleth) to denote a submarine. “Let the boat,” Enki said, “be a MA.GUR.GUR” – “a boat that can turn and tumble.” Indeed, only such a boat could have survived an overpowering avalanche of waters. (7) 
The Elohim (E.T.) did not cause theDeluge The Deluge was not a sudden event; though it was unavoidable, the Elohim (Nefilim) detected its coming. Their scheme to destroy Mankind rested not on an active but on a passive role by the gods. They did not cause the Deluge; they simply connived to withhold from the earthlings the fact of its coming.
With Earth about to be engulfed by water, they could go in only one direction for protection: skyward. When the storm that preceded the Deluge began to blow, the Nefilim (E.T.) took to their shuttlecraft, and remained in the Earth orbit until the waters began to subside.
It is generally accepted by now, that
 the biblical tales of the Creation and of the events leading to the Deluge are condensed Hebrew versions of the Sumerian traditions.(9) 
Note: Eloah: is a feminine word and means goddess
Sitchin's books (1 to 8) can be found in English on the following site: 
1 The E.T. retained on earth for having transgressed one law.

 Sitchin: (The 12th Planet in French p. 9) (La 12e Planète p. 9) Zecharia Sitchin is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), The American Oriental Society (AOS), The North- American Association for the study of the Middle-East, and the Israelian Exploration Society (IES). In 1996, he was designated scientist of the year in the context of the International Forum of new science. His works has been the object of numerous radio and televised shows, of articles and reports in specialized newspapers and magazines through the whole world. (Cover page): M. Sitchin, backed with more than 100 illustrations of artifacts unveiled by archaeologists, proves the presence in our solar system of a 12th planet. The planet X talked about by certain scientists. The Sumerians fixed its orbit, named it and left instructions that allowed it to be found...).

Hardly more than a hundred years ago
 clay tablets covered with writings were discovered in Mesopotamia. They are dated from about 6000 years ago. They showed without any doubt, that the biblical stories concerning the creation of Earth and life, the creation of Man, the Garden of Eden, the Deluge, the Tower of Babel... were in fact accounts written for the first time by Sumerians, in Mesopotamia. (The 12th Planet in French p. 12). (La 12e planète p 12).

There is no science fiction in what Sitchin says. Everything has been available to the scholar for the last hundred years.

4 Noé: ZI.U.SUD.RA as called by the Sumerians.

5. Enki or Ea, an Aunnaki-Elohim “god”, was responsible for the genetic manipulations (with his half-sister Ninmah-Ninhursag) that were at the origin of the “creation” of Adam and Eve.
