Raelians And Their 'Clones'
Copyright © by Der Voron, 3/9/03
The time has come to unveil a mystery of the most recent past: the sect of Raelians. We believe our readers could understand what this sect really represents, a long time ago. If you did, then just don't read further and switch to more interesting stuff. And if you didn't, then I dare to believe that this article is for you.
Thus, in December 2002, a sect headed by Claude Vorilhon, aka Rael, and called by his name the sect of Raelians, or simply Raelians, announced that it had, with the help of extraterrestrials and for the first time in the human history, cloned a human being. But they
refused to show the new-born clone to the public.
Sounds strange? But, in fact, Raelians claim they have cloned humans to bring more attention to themselves; to get more members, their member fees and donations, and to sell more copies of their books.
Their method: first they announced that the first clone was "born", but that her parents "declined" to show her ("her", since that "was" a "female"). Next, in January, they announced the "birth" of the "second" clone, by a Dutch woman, "somewhere in Europe" and in an "undisclosed location". And then they announced that many, many new clones are to be "born", in their turn. In other words, they decided to make "birth announcements", at intervals, in order to periodically inflate interest to their sect and especially the stuff that they are selling. Wait, and you will see that they will soon announce the "birth" of the "third" clone. More on the way.
Pity that a part of the public is now ready to believe in any other "clones", when, and where ever their "birth", would be announced by Rael and Co, just because they have already announced the "births" of "first clones".
Ah... sorry about my forgetfulness. In the end of this short article, let me announce to you that I, independent contractor and author of a book called Starcraft, have, several days ago, cloned Rael himself, and that the copy of this human being (same age, weight, height, and even appearance) is kept in an undisclosed location, by my friends, knowns, and some other people who helped me during the cloning process.
