What are your thoughts on Rael...
    #1184179 - 01/02/03 06:50 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I just looked over www.rael.org and so far I'm convinced... I'm easily led astray by things like this, and I'm not sure exactly what to think at this point. Any of you familiar with this Rael guy? What are your thoughts? Am I a fool, or does this Rael guy have something going?

there are 3 options with this

1. it is real

2. its a hoax to get attention

3. they are masterminds, and use their claim of aliens as a cover up so that the world of governments will not take them serious, meanwhile they are doing underground projects without being monitored because everyone thinks they are a joke... its interesting stuff though

It's obviously a ridiculous cult.

He's a racecar driver who claims aliens impregnated his mother with him.

Try thinking, please.

What exactly do you find convincing about this?

After looking over their "information", I'm having trouble believing that you possess both the brain power to type this message, and the gullibility to believe this nonsense.

I particularly liked this line.

Raelian revolution is made up of people from all walks of life,
from all sexual orientations, from all races, all ages, everyone different and fiercely non conformist, turning everything they touch into fun and pleasure.

Sounds like they are some wild and crazy party animals.  Who wouldn't want to sign up.
LOL :smirk:

thats the nice part :smile: .


Im not sure about the realians, they seem to have hidden agendas. That lady who held the press conference on cnn had a strange voice/facial structure. anything is possible at some vantage point of perception, to what degree these realains lie on, who knows. i have to agree with all of those 1 2 3 possibilities. but like adamist said i liked the part about aliens engineering humans. wouldnt that be funny :P .

I think it is quite possible, actually. I like that explanation better than the one my Biology teacher gave me. :wink:

I just found it funny when I saw the news reporters say "a group that claims extra terrestrials created humans through genetic experiments with primates". Novelty.

I don't think any of those three options are likely.

It is a RELIGION. Which means that they believe it is real, so it's not a hoax. This doesn't mean it is real.

It's a bunch of people who believe in silly stories.

What amuses me most is that Jesus was laughed at in his time - even put to death... I suppose only time will tell...

Yeah, and thinking you're the son of god is just as ridiculous and stupid as thinking you're the son of aliens.

option 3 sounds the most likely, although it is also possible that it is government funded being disguised as a cult.

"option 3 sounds the most likely, although it is also possible that it is government funded being disguised as a cult."

That's the most likely? The most likely possibility is that the american government has set up a ridiculous cult in Quebec so that they can clone humans? This makes sense to you? Why? Why would they do this? I can't imagine any reason why the government would devise such a convoluted plan just to clone one kid.

While people always talk about goofy conspiracies like this, nothing anywhere near this ridiculous has ever come to light. So why do people always think these conspiracies are happening all over the place?

maybe they are just trying to put a face to what they believe but dont quite understand yet. or what they have a limited understanding of because of their lack of hard core evidence they are just going with what they think to be the most plausable scenario. at this point i can tell you i have no clue what the hell any of it means. but one scenario is just as possible as another especially viewing it from the media and their website, although some of their stuff is also on www.operationterra.com which i have a little more substance in my belief...

:laugh: we are all just trying to understand :wink: . remember the spider grandmother phluck, remember?

Am I the only one who's noticed that all these people with websites devoted to aliens and stuff are all SELLING BOOKS?!

My opinion: they're scamming the lost souls - I find it amazing this guy has a .org website..... ".org" is a NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION; well, it's supposed to be..

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

"they are just going with what they think to be the most plausable scenario"

They should try thinking a little harder. If they were to use reasoning instead of faith, I'm sure that the most plausible scenario would be a whole lot different.
