Anyone here familiar with the Raelian movement? They are quite fascinating from a sociological perspective. Personally, I think it is all a big scam by Rael to get laid by beautiful women (which apparently happens quite frequently for him).

Perhaps we are all wrong in our beliefs, and Rael's got it right!

Anyway - for your edification about the true reality that you didn't know about - here is a press release they put out on the P.R. newswires today:

Rael in Las Vegas Press Conference

Human cloning is about to rid humans of the ultimate disease: DEATH

NEW YORK, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday March 26 at 11:00 AM, His Holiness Rael, spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement, will give a press conference at the Bellagio Hotel, 3600 Las Vegas Boulevard in Las Vegas to reveal how the latest research on memory transfer technology associated with human cloning is on the verge of changing our society forever by ridding humans of the ultimate disease: death.

Rael will be accompanied by Dr. Brigitte Boisselier, head of the CLONAID project, who has successfully cloned thirteen babies, including world famous cloned baby Eve, born in December 2002. She will report on the progress made by the Clonaid team and present the work of the Stemaid project members who use stem cells produced through cloning for therapeutic applications, especially in the fight against aging.

With eternal life now within reach, His Holiness Rael will present developments that are about to play an essential role in the future of our society, including the necessity of using Genetically Modified foods, nanotechnology and the importance of practicing meditation and non-violence.

His Holiness Rael draws the exceptional accuracy of his scientific and humanitarian vision from the Message He received in 1973 from the Elohim, a very advanced race of human beings from a distant planet within our galaxy. The Elohim created all life on Earth scientifically using DNA (including humans in their image) and were mistaken for God, which explains why the name Elohim is present in all original Bibles. The Bible is, in fact, an atheist book describing the scientific creation of life on Earth. The new concept of "Intelligent Design" fits perfectly with this explanation of our origins. Thirty years ago the Elohim explained to Rael that human cloning coupled with memory transfer would one day allow humans to live forever on Earth. Today this prediction is close to becoming a reality, as it has been for millennia on the Elohim's planet. It is, in fact, how the Elohim resurrected Jesus, their messenger, as well as many others whom they sent to guide humanity and who now live on their planet.

Today human cloning, genetically modified organisms, robotics, the Internet and nanotechnology are creating a totally revolutionary new world and environment; a world in which the Dark Age spirituality and guilt from traditional monotheist religions do not fit at all. This explains why more and more people claim to be atheists. Indeed, recent survey shows that for the first time 20 % of Americans say they don't believe in god and 45 % never attend any religious service.

His Holiness RAEL brings a new godless spirituality that embraces new technologies and helps human beings prepare themselves for a new world in which, thanks to cloning and stem cells, they will live forever young. In addition, they will no longer have to work, thanks to robotics and nanotechnology, and they will enjoy a society free from sex-related guilt, thanks to the separation of sex and reproduction, the development of virtual sex through the Internet and the disappearance of traditional religions.

His Holiness Rael and Dr. Boisselier will also give a public lecture on March 30 at 7:00 PM, at the UNLV Student Union to which the media will also be invited.

You have it quite right I think. A charismatic leader, and followers who are trying to find a way of not dying through human genetic engineering. They have a lot of money because members tithe.

I've heard about these guys on the Art Bell show a long time ago, but I cant remember much. Except that the lady who runs it looks like a witch :)
