Raelians

Every so so often I like to visit the web site of The Raelian Movement, just so I can remind myself that rejecting God is perfectly compatible with all sorts of craziness.

It’s too bad they don’t advertise themselves as the “world’s largest Atheist, non-profit, UFO-related organisation” on their web site anymore, but at least its title is “The Raelian Movement: Intelligent Design for Atheists.” Yes, they do push ID. Except that the “designer” is a bunch of advanced space aliens.

They’ve still got some outright atheist stuff in their FAQ, and I must say they’ve got an interesting cosmology. See “Who Created the Elohim?” and “What makes a Raelian any different from people who believe in GOD?“. Great stuff, if you like weirdness.
