LAS VEGAS, May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Upon hearing that Pope Francis said he would welcome aliens at the Vatican and even baptize them, the spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement has issued a correction.
"There will be no need to baptize those he calls "aliens" when they decide to come back," Rael said in a statement released today by the IRM. "They are the ones who created all religions on Earth, and they were mistakenly taken for gods. Instead of offering them baptism, the pope will have to acknowledge that they are the gods he has been praying to all along."
IRM spokesperson Brigitte Boisselier, Ph.D, explained that according to Raelian philosophy, all forms of life on Earth were created by the Elohim, highly advanced human beings from another planet.
"They came from another planet and made us in their image," she said. "The original, Hebrew Bible clearly states that 'Elohim' created life on Earth, but this word 'Elohim' is in the plural form, not the singular. It means 'those who came from the sky.' It was later mistranslated into the singular form, 'god,' which led to monotheist religions like Catholicism."
There is an easy solution for those who really want to know the truth, according to Boisselier.
"By reading the original Bible without the distortion of the monotheist filter, anyone can access the information the Elohim wanted us to preserve," she said. "Evidence of the their work is worldwide, and we ourselves are becoming creators as new forms of life are now being conceived and created in our laboratories. The arrogance of the pope in wishing to baptize those who sent Jesus shows the level of his ignorance."
Yahweh, leader of the Elohim, gave Rael important information in 1973, Boisselier said.
"Among other things, Yahweh was highly critical of the Vatican," Boisselier said, adding that people can read all of Yahweh's Messages for themselves in Rael's book "Intelligent Design," downloadable for free at rael.org.
"But here's what Yahweh had to say about the Vatican," she said:
"These men, who are only men, indulge themselves in wealth and luxury at the Vatican when the Gospels tell them to possess neither gold nor silver, nor even a spare coat. How dare they? And how dare the Church burden people with their so-called sins, which are only different concepts of morality and lifestyles; how dare they speak of goodness while living in opulence at the Vatican when people are dying of hunger; how dare they seek invitations and honors while preaching humility; how dare they ask people to call them 'Father,' 'Your Eminence,' or 'Your Holiness' when their Gospels expressly forbid all these things. If tomorrow the pope took to the road as a pauper, the church would be revived, but it would have a totally different humanitarian goal. The Church could reorient itself toward goodness by helping those who are unhappy and by helping to spread the actual truth of these writings, which until now have been distorted or kept secret."
