In response to the signs on the freeway between Vegas and Los Angles that claim you should follow the Bible or burn in Hell the Raelians have funded a campaign to claim that God is a myth.
Ricky Roehr, leader of the North American Raelians, said in a press release;
Those signs are designed to make viewers feel fear and guilt. We want to counterbalance that fear by letting them know there is no God or Devil. There’s no need to live in fear. We should enjoy our precious lives to the fullest while of course giving love all around us. Surely that’s a message even Christians recognize as one that Jesus taught. But, whether the source is the Bible, the Koran, or Greek or Roman mythology, all gods are myths, just as there’s no Santa Claus or Easter Bunny etc. What there are, however, are human beings who were advanced scientists who created all forms of life, known as the Elohim. You can read about them in the oldest versions of the Bible, and the oldest versions are always the less polluted versions.
Realism is a creationist/intelligent design religion. They preach that life on Earth was created by aliens – the Elohim. The half-human children of the Elohim are what we “mistake” for angels or gods.
Sex and happiness is important to the Raelians. They believe machines should work for us. The Raelians are also determined to “win back” the use of the swastika. The swastika was originally a religious symbol before the Nazis adopted it. This caused the movement trouble in Israel and Lebanon.

In Pure Spirit
Do you find any logic or truth in the Raelian teachings at all? Is a life of pleasure not a desirable one? Isn’t the 70s an early date for pitching an intelligent design theory? Was Rael ahead of his time?
