During my short life, if I have ever learned one lesson that is “Time always tells the truth.” Ever since I learned this universal law and truth, I no longer lie and stopped looking at someone with disguised lovely eyes.
I’m neither Jesus nor Buddha. (It is easier said than done, if I said I want to become such a great person). Certainly, on Earth, there are kinds of people that I can’t accept. If we consider the Earth as one gigantic organism it is certain that all people on Earth are our brothers and sisters, yet, to love all of them my consciousness level is too low. However, I think, one’s consciousness has little to do with detecting a deception.
If a person is about to jump off from a bridge, I know that the result will be unfavorable. Therefore, I will give him a warning and an advice. This is my duty and my duty ends here. Hereafter, it is up to him what result may he choose.
Truly, I want to give my sincere warning to my Raelian friends and non-Raelians who are interested in Claude Vorilhon Rael’s “false message.” My exhibit number one is Claude Vorilhon Rael himself.
Every human being makes a mistake; Claude Vorilhon Rael’s biggest mistake was that he plagiarized too much from a single author, and his critical error was he even plagiarized the Raelian symbol from the same author whose name is “Jean Sendy”, a prominent French author, UFOlogist and I consider him as a great philosopher too. Rael very much realized his error and published same book with only modified symbol, but the book already came out into the world cannot be evaporated. Moreover, the explanation of the symbol is “identical” to Jean Sendy’s, and the intriguing fact is that the two lines entwined the exact same way.
Whoever creates a symbol represents whole civilization or country or nation must have deeply considered before its actual proclamation and utilization. In my understanding, such a symbol lives and dies with that civilization without “slightest” modification. Claude Vorilhon Rael has a good explanation for changing the second symbol (1976) to third version; however, how can he explain for changing first original version (1974) to the second version? and changed back to second version again in 2007? Is 16 years of respecting Jewish people long enough? Indeed, which symbol he actually saw on E.T’s suit and on the UFO on 13th of December, 1973?
Another astonishing discovery was that Jean Sendy gave a conference in Clermont-Ferrand (Rael’s home town) on 4th March 1974, and Rael’s first book “Le Livre qui dit la verite (The book which tells the truth)” published in July the same year.
The testimony of Marie-Helene Parent, former raelian priest (Realian for 25 years), indicates that Rael knew very well Jean Sendy personally. Here is an excerpt from her testimony, “One night during dinner, after he (Rael) took few glasses of wine, he told me that he knew well Jean Sendy and was a friend and had drinks together in Clermont-Ferrand.”
And it was my biggest mistake to assume high level Raelians guides, who seem very intelligent, must have investigated Rael’s claims thoroughly, from top to bottom. They didn’t! or they don’t even want to. To tell the truth, I had been a Raelian such a long time, not because of Rael or his “message”, but because of the wonderful Raelian guides. Who would not listen to such great people with such great personality? Their only faults are they have too much craving for eternal life and they think they are very special by being Raelians exactly as they have been told by their pretended prophet.
Some Raelians stress that many successful business men, rich people, doctors, professors or Harvard graduates with PhD are among Raelians. Claude Vorilhon Rael knows very well that these kinds of people are very influential to vulnerable people. If this kind of person goes to a Raelian seminar, he much likes to be called to Rael’s room and he may see Rael weeping over humanity in saying that “You are a very intelligent, conscious person who has a mission to save entire human race from self destruction, and in return you may receive eternal life because you are so special.” If he is emotional person and buy Rael’s story, then he will be immediately bestowed high level as a guide at the end of the seminar. Unfortunately, many Raelians are already trapped with such words even though they have rational thinking to figure out what is right. Who wouldn’t like to be praised with such nice words and exalted and applauded by hundreds of fine people? This is just mental and number game. Every con-artist knows that this world is just number game. One Raelian guide told me many years ago that 4 out of 100 people who read Rael’s book will become Raelians. You must know that there are many more successful business men, professors, scientists, Harvard graduates who read Rael’s books but don’t believe his story.
What was going on in late 1960s and 1970s?
On 20th July 1969, man finally took first steps on the Moon. It was the beginning of new era. Needless to say, the general interests of E.T, UFO, contactee reached utmost during that period. Consequently, many books or claims, true or false, came out also that period. So was it our E.T. creators’ kind and deliberate decision to send the “last prophet” to satisfy people’s expectation?
Another important historical event took place in October 1973. The first oil crisis. The war in Middle East started on 6th October, and just in 3 months the oil price jumped up 8 times. The Prime Minister of France, Mr. Pierre Messmer announced in TV on 30th November that he would reduce speed limit on all roads and cease all auto racings in France. The Journal Le Point wrote an article entitled as “Auto: The end of an era.” And just in 2 weeks Claude Vorilhon Rael claimed that he received “the final message.” Presumably, he pretty much realized that his auto magazine business would soon end, but in his book “Extraterrestrials took me to their planet (1975)” he claimed that he had successful auto magazine business at the time he encountered our E.T. creator. Some French people can attest that his auto magazine “Autopop” was nothing more than a troubled magazine with small circulation.
Being an avid reader of books myself, I realized that even prominent bestseller authors plagiarized some point, since they must get influenced or perceived first. However, they have a rule such as “not more than 3 sentences from a book or an author.” How many sentences Claude Vorilhon Rael plagiarized? The answer is not sentences. He plagiarized mainly five Jean Sendy’s books.
By learning life’s lesson, I became extremely skeptical about everything. Now I can’t trust 100%, instead, I ask myself, how much percent this person is telling the truth or from his own?
In retrospect, if I had only known the name “Jean Sendy” 11 years ago, I wouldn’t have become a Raelian. You must know that the paragraph containing “Jean Sendy” on Wikipedia Rael/Raelian related pages have been continuously removed by “unseen” hands for a long time, and it is still even now as of (Put today’s date here). I had ignored my close friends’ sincere warning, just for one reason, because they had researched 30 minutes on Rael’s personal life and concluded Rael is fraud, which is correct method for reasoning, whereas I had spent for years researching on ancient histories and E.T. things which only support Rael’s plagiarised theory.
One may ask me why all of sudden I start to assert that Claude Vorilhon Rael is a fraud. Certain information has been available since long time ago as beginning of year 2000, to say. If I had just searched on the Internet I could have come to the same conclusion as now. To be honest, I didn’t look at it for some reasons. First, I believed high rank guides’ judgments assuming that they must have confirmed such information. Second, I was convinced Rael saying many years ago at the seminars (he stopped saying this some point) “Don’t just swallow what I say, have a doubt and use your own consciousness on my words” and not knowing that who actually had a doubt had been expelled silently or induced to leave the Raelian Movement. Third, since most of information is in French, I wasn’t able to read it back in that time. Fourth, I was busy, when you are busy you don’t think. Fifth, and this was my biggest reason, since most of information is written in very sarcastic way I tended to avoid it. People who say on something with swear words or in sarcastic way can be both telling the truth or false. It simply keeps away those people who don’t like such swear or sarcastic words. For this reason, I try to put information on my site less sarcastic as possible since my objective is not to make fun of Claude Vorilhon Rael or his absurd thoughts, but only to inform the truth.
I am NOT condemning Rael for copying some philosophies such as femininity from Osho Rajneesh, sensuality, jealousy, love from somewhere, or Silva method of meditation from former Raelian Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr. Yes, even though he is the real prophet he could learn from some other sources and teach his own way. The only problem is that he “never” acts according to what he said. This only reveals his true personality. However, the explanation of the Bible supposed to be received from his E.T. encounter. Series of Claude Vorilhon Rael’s books cannot be coincidently similar to series of Jean Sendy’s books. Some people said Claude Vorilhon Rael was “influenced” by Jean Sendy, but he was not supposed to be “influenced” by anyone on Earth for he is claiming himself as a “Prophet” not as an “Author.” Therefore the word “influenced” is inappropriate word for him.
You don’t need to believe testimony of Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr (former high ranking Raelian guide, level 5) or others’, yet just focus on the “facts,” and ask yourself whether you can believe series of coincidences or not. Certainly, either Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr or Claude Vorilhon Rael is lying. For me, I believe Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr’s stories simply because they perfectly matched with my years of observation of Rael.
Being a simple “male” neophyte, I never had a chance to know Rael personally; however, by being a best friend of Korean/Japanese Raelian angels, those whom Rael exceptionally fond of, I unintentionally picked up many information on Rael’s personal life. (Note: Raelian Angels are females who decided to devote entirely, mentally and physically, to their prophet – Claude Vorilhon Rael or to E.T. creators.) Many of these girls are already quit the Raelian movement, not because they found a hard evidence but of sickness of Rael’s personal life. These girls are very fine and sensitive girls, if these girls are little bit more courageous then we would see hundreds of their first-hand testimonies. Thus, I know Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr and Marie-Helene Parent are telling the truth in their testimonies. If you are still not sure, just wait and see. These girls are getting old and as they having their own daughters, they will speak out to protect them from other potential con-men.
I admit that some testimonies we cannot take as 100% facts. Since the testimonies are based on their memory, there must be some exaggeration or distortion in meaning or even from his imagination. However, you have no other choice but to believe testimony such as being heard and taken at seminar places where hundreds of people were there, and the testimony supported with photos or written documents mostly produced by Rael himself or Raelian Movement. If these supported evidences are counterfeit, Rael must have sued them at all cost. Since Rael has learned the lesson that he can never sue and win against people telling only the true factual information, he stopped suing. All Raelians must know how and where their hard earned donated money is being used. To sue ex-Raelians, and to build secret multi-million-dollar luxury mansion with garden inside in Narita Japan and Las Vegas, USA, instead of building the embassy, and to buy some wine be placed at Raelian angels invited rooms, just to name a few.
Every Raelian with few years of experience knows very well that Claude Vorilhon Rael is very inconsistent man. In February 2000, I was staying in a French Raelian’s apartment in Marseille France for a month whose identity “was” (the sentence was removed some point) revealed in Claude Vorilhon Rael’s book saying that in early years French Raelians didn’t have a meeting because this Raelian Police Officer informed that the meeting would be raided by the police. One afternoon, he told me a story very proudly and not confidentially, in a sense of he and only few French Raelians know the real “fact” because they heard directly from Rael. The story is that when Claude Vorilhon Rael saw E.T(Yahweh)’s legs on 13th December 1973, he hid himself behind nearby bushes because he felt “so afraid.” The French Raelian wasn’t just told me this story simply, but with actions imitating himself hiding behind a kitchen drawer. Whether he is still Raelian or not, he will very proudly attest this. That time, I was very wondering why Claude Vorilhon Rael is telling all kinds different version of his story all around. You can trust on my memory not my intelligence, if you have doubt, you can find him easily, so ask him and confirm yourself.
What do I know about Rael’s personal life? Well, I’m not ready to dirty my own mouth yet if there is other way to inform you the truth. During Canadian mini seminar from 30th August to 1st of September in 2008, a very eloquent high rank guide lectured us on how to defend ourselves from people who condemn Rael’s personal life. In a nutshell, he taught, “Rael is human being and every human being has personal life and privacy, therefore, it is none of your business and you shouldn’t talk about it.” My humble and logical answer is that if he is the real prophet then his personal life must be prophet like.
If one conducts a good deed regularly in secret, one day, he must get caught, and the news about his good deeds will spread out at least at faster speed than bad news does throughout people around him. For 11 years of my Raelian life, have I ever witnessed or overheard any good deed that Claude Vorilhon Rael did? The answer is “None!” This does not mean he never done any. During Japanese seminar, almost every seminar, he lectured Raelians what he had conducted one night; for example, he went outside to a park and left a delicious cake to a homeless man while he was asleep. This anecdote I am sure that it is true even though no one has witnessed. Does any Raelian utter out or make subject for a chat this kind of anecdote his prophet supposedly did in secret? The answer is also “None!” I have never witnessed myself or overheard any Raelian proudly uttered out which he directly heard from Rael. Why? Because any good deed supposedly conducted in secret but revealed by himself does not have any value! There are only two possibilities. Either he is “the Bad” or he is “the Ugly.” This shows very well that no Raelian is very proud of his prophet’s personality, for sure. A man is judged by his deeds, not by his words. However, all devoted Raelians seem to judge self-claimed prophet “only” by his words.
Have I done or ever done any good deed in my life? Only time will tell.
However, Claude Vorilhon Rael and I have one common favorite word which is “stupid.” Yet, 99 percent of time, I use this word to myself. All my friends or even acquaintances can attest this, especially in recent days. In June 2007, after he lectured his favorite teaching subject “Love your enemy,” I heard, as well as 300 to 400 Raelians, during the lecture time Claude Vorilhon Rael’s favorite “S/he/it is sooou stuuuupiiiid!” sentence with his unique French accent. I have very good memory which has nothing to do with intelligence. I remember this very well because unlikely previous seminars he elaborated it with many details. It was like this (The actual speech was about 5 mintues long, this is just short version): “I saw one guy in European seminar many years ago. He is sooooou stuuuuupiiiid that this guy liked this big breast girl but with no brain. He even has a PhD!” He repeated this sentence 2 or 3 times with big laughing. Guess what? “He” and “She” were even Raelians! I don’t know if they are still. While he was saying this, the lecture room was very quiet. Probably, most of us were thinking the same thing. “Oh my Elohim! The prophet is making another mistake.”
Does this humanly prophet is learning himself by trial and error as well as his humanly father in the sky? If you were 25,000 years advanced civilization than human being, would you like to send an unprepared prophet and let him learn by trial and error or cramming for few days on what he supposed to teach? At least I believed like that and ignored the inner voice telling me the truth every time I saw his humanly mistakes. His favorite “stupid” sentence by repetitive hearing carved deep in my memory cells like a tape recorder. I guess I have to live with this all my life. Because of him, I even learned how to say “very stupid” in Japanese at Japanese seminar some years ago, also by repetitive hearing. He even wondered and asked Korean Raelians how to say “very stupid” in Korean language and some Korean Raelians taught him during lecture hour. If he says this in every seminar, maybe that is what he truly thinks about human beings and his devoted disciples whom his father supposedly created with full of love. I really don’t think any of real prophets should have the word “stupid” in his vocabulary list.
Claude Vorilhon Rael has appealed for a long time that we must “understand” instead of “believing.” Since the most of his ideas came from Jean Sendy, in fact, Raelians really understand Jean Sendy and they must be called “Jean Sendyans” instead of “Raelians.” Yet, it is totally left for them to “believe” Rael for his claims which have nothing to do with understanding. (The difference between understand and believe was also introduced by Jean Sendy in his book Les Temps Messianiques (The Messiahnique Times) 1975“
Infinitely small means Zero! Nothing! Nada! I really wonder if any Raelian truly understands the meaning of the infinite. There are infinite numbers of zero between the point and the last number. The Raelians are the only group of people who “believe” that after these infinite numbers of zero they can find whole civilization living inside of “infinitely” smaller than an atom. Jean Sendy brought these scales and idea in his book “The Coming of the Gods (1970) on page 14-15” and he clearly mentioned that he brought the idea only to titillate the imagination. Even wording ancient Greek philosophers were not dare to assert this kind of absurdity, Claude Vorilhon Rael is the unique man asserting this on Earth and probably in this vast galaxy too. An atom can divide continuously overtime absolutely CANNOT prove the infinite such as whole civilization is existing and living in one single cell of living organism, and so on, therefore infinitely. Can it be proved if infinite time is given? Yet, infinite time cannot prove the theory of evolution. This is correct but Rael contradicts himself with this. Same as flaw of the Moor’s law that number of transistors placed on an integrated circuit can be doubled approximately every two years. As physicist Michio Kaku mentioned, there will be a short-circuit some point.
Even though we assume that an atom can be divided continuously over time; however, to find these civilization, or living organism or whatever, you have to divide an atom as small as particle of an air (I’m sure that air particle is bigger than an atom, I’m not a scientific guy), or even smaller, and that small particle as an air has infinite number of civilization living inside. And infinite times smaller than the particle of an air has infinite number of civizization living inside, and so on. Now, Rael’s claim become pointless, why limits only to living organism to have living being inside? Because does it sound plausible? Can anyone understand this or imagine this?
That limit never touches zero but actually becomes zero (nothing) which inevitably leads to the conclusion “Nothing is indeed consist of everything.” Again, he contradicts himself with what he plagiarised from ancient Greek cosmology “Nothing comes from nothing, everything comes from something,” in his book “Yes to human cloning (page 78)” which he has been saying throughout the seminars to impress people. If my assumption is wrong then you can safely assume that mankind’s great event landing on the Moon is also big fraud and also we will never able to land on any planet since the mathematicians used the same limit calculation to have men landed on the Moon. Maybe space is infinite in size, but not in a sense of what Rael said. Rael’s concept of the infinite involves with blind belief, not with understanding on any human level. Whether Rael plagiarized this idea from Jean Sendy or not, he made a big mistake. And this is another proof that he is just a fraud. This was one of the biggest questions that I had during my Raelian years, now it is clearly answered.
When you believe something, you only focus on what you already believe or want to belive, and ignore all other flaws. Having a religion is almost same as having a lottery ticket. You want to believe what you already have in your hand. This is very true, if a person who has exact same intellectual level or belief system as one of the current Raelian bishop guides, and first exposed to the information available these days, he or she surely will not become a Raelian. If you are a Raelian, reread Rael’s books, not just focusing on what you have underlined (what you already believe or want to believe) but the parts that you were curious and ignored or skipped. To be honest, I was dumbfound myself realizing so many flaws I found on Rael’s false “message” recently which I had ignored during my Raelian years.
Learn this, “You just want to believe.” and this will carve deep in your subconscious mind continuously and eventually you become what you believe. This is favorite technique called “Self-Deceiving (Self-Deception)” which many con-artists have been developing and using to “deceive” their followers. Trust no one, just focus on facts.
Thanks to the Internet and other bona-fide researchers.
And thanks to Rael for his hard works extracting essential teachings from here and there and taught me, my life changed 11 years ago in a good way, and his last lesson will save me sometime in the future for sure.
Since no one is becoming Raelian member anymore these days, this hoax will end within our generation. And our children will see Claude Vorilhon Rael only in the history book at the best. However, learning by other con-man’s mistakes there will be other “intelligent deceiver” our children may serve. Alas! My conclusion is not whether Claude Vorilhon Rael is a fraud or not, but if we have to admit these kinds of con-men as part of the way people earn their living on this planet.
All my friends and those who ever visited my home or my room during Raelian seminars know very well that I’m a sincere person and was a very devoted Raelian [proof]. I’m telling you the truth in the name of God, Elohim, Eloah, Jesus, Buddha, Moses, St Joseph, St Catherine and St Denis that Claude Vorilhon Rael is just an impostor.
