Raelians Push White House for Alien Embassy to Save Humanity

Although it seems like a late April Fool’s prank, a press release from the Raelian movement on April 2 announced that they were delivering a project file to the White House with plans to construct an embassy for extraterrestrial visitors. Copies of the file were also given to the State Department and the Council on Foreign Relations.

The Raelian movement has insisted for decades that Earth’s survival depends on the creation of such an embassy. The arrival of benevolent aliens will inaugurate a messianic age of peace; but if humans fail to build the embassy by a certain date, we will destroy ourselves. A petition to build an embassy of this kind has nearly 3,000 signatures, revealing that many are still compelled by the idea of salvation in a flying saucer.

The UFO phenomenon began in June 1947 when Kenneth Arnold reported seeing disk-like objects in the sky while flying past Mount Rainier in Washington State. Almost immediately, UFO enthusiasts connected the sightings to the advent of nuclear weapons and millennial expectations. One month after the Arnold sighting, the Buchanan Brothers sang:

And though the war may be through there’s unrest and trouble brewin’

And those flying saucers may be just a sign

That if peace doesn’t come it will be the end of some

So repent today, you’re running out of time

The man known as Rael (née Claude Vorilhon) incorporated the same elements of UFOs, nuclear anxiety, and Biblical prophecy. Rael allegedly encountered space aliens in 1973, who warned him that humanity had entered the “Age of Apocalypse” following the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

Possibly inspired by writers like Erich Von Daniken, Rael announced that the Elohim–a name for God used in the Hebrew Bible–were actually aliens who created humanity “in their image” using advanced genetics. Prior to Rael, the Elohim employed numerous other prophets including Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. Thus all religions are actually the result of alien contact.

To show the Elohim we are prepared to receive their help, Rael was to oversee the construction of an embassy in Jerusalem that would serve as a millennial “third temple.” Originally Earth was given until 2025 to construct the embassy or face destruction, though a website describing the embassy has pushed the critical date back to 2035. It also features messages from the Elohim expressing frustration with Israel and threatening to move the embassy to a more worthy country.

The Raelian movement has a history of using controversial campaigns to remain socially relevant. (Recent examples include the Swastika campaign and the Clitoraid initiative). But the petition to build an embassy for the Elohim points to broader religious attitudes. Thousands of signatories left comments expressing grave doubts about the ability of humanity (especially governments and churches) to change the world and a longing for superhuman intervention. One wrote:

Despite all the bad choices we humans have made over time, I know we will have the good sense to accept this help and prevent the extinction of life on Earth. It’s our duty to save our children from the disastrous consequences of our bad decisions. Let’s build the embassy and welcome those who truly can help/save us.

These comments demonstrate the plasticity of millennial hopes. A quarter century after the end of the Cold War, fears of nuclear annihilation have been superseded by fears of a global financial collapse and environmental devastation. Whether they believe the “Elohim” is God or a race of benevolent aliens, many still long for a new sacred order founded on something more than human agency.

    On potential problem is as soon as we build the Raelian embassy, the movement will splinter into multiple sects, and we will end up with different Realian embassies competing for donations and tax exempt status.

  • Teresa Ickes

    it is time that we come together as a people & unite than divide us any further by bad choices called history. We now know & can accept the technology that our ancestors have created us in their image in a laboratory with a variety of DNA’s from different star systems as we have the scientific data that can explain this with at least 64 different epigenetic DNA’s. However, I know we are from among 100’S if not more. We have been here before. Lets not keep making the same mistakes twice. Lets learn from our past and move forward to our future with Love by ending WAR! The Elohim have preferred Jerusalem because that is where they created their first descendants, the Jews. Which according to biblical resources have wandered for 40yrs in the desert. That have been given this opportunity again to be forgiven and to my knowledge have denied the building of the final temple. But they can change their mind if they wanna open it. Remember the Elohim have picked those peasant people of non- religious views so they would be open for change & it wouldn’t hurt their psyche which comes from dogmatic religious opinions. This doesn’t have to change your faith in believing that there are more intelligent beings in our universe only open up to a better understanding, & come face to face with your god, Yourself. LET US BUILD THE FINAL TEMPLE! AS IT MAYBE MENTIONED IN EZEKIEL

  • Teresa Ickes

    the Raelians are not divided. they are one. and as far as Tax’s lets donate to the cause of the effect we are looking for. Not just hand a bunch of greedy people money to party with…

  • Jim Reed

    If they are one, can’t they donate to their own cause?

  • Gregory Peterson

    If we were created with “advanced genetics,” as someone with a genetic disease, I wish they had done a better job.

  • Chris Paddock

    This post seems to have a number of words missing and the construction demonstrates an unusual approach to grammar. Even allowing for that it is, ISTM, little more than a list of unsupported assertions which are misunderstood to lead to a rational conclusion..

    If there is an argument to present it will be less likely to be dismissed lightly if it is written clearly and logically and if statements are backed with valid evidential support. Also, bear in mind that any views incorporating an assumption that biblical stories are factual are automatically suspect.

  • Teresa Ickes

    to them we are perfect but it is up to us to discover this are you in?

  • Jim Reed

    How much does it cost?

  • Teresa Ickes

    Lol nothing

  • Teresa Ickes

    Donate 1% if u want to help spread the message & help build the final temple (embassy) on earth. I suggest u get the free download of his book over 50yrs in the Makin rael.org

  • Teresa Ickes

    what is it that you don’t understand? are you an attorney? what is ISTM? i don’t claim to be know perfect grammar because i write from my heart and to express that sometimes i use all caps. What words are missing? level with me here. Do you want to have our ET ancestors land openly? that could teach us amazing things? and share their inheritance with us as promised. Would like them to return openly?

  • Teresa Ickes

    wouldn’t you love to join All ETs openly and not be afraid of an invasion? as most hollywood & media news might lead those to believe?

  • Teresa Ickes

    I believe the world is ready to hear the truth behind ALL religions? Noahs ark was a space ship they will never find the boat it doesn’t exist. The animals on board were in petri-tree dishes 2 of every kind of DNA female & male. Mother Mary was taken to the Mother Ship & inseminated with the seed of Yahweh. Peter thought he was having a vision of the chains coming off but he did not know of electric laser welding torches. The multiplication of bread was dehydrated synthetic bread, once water was added to it it was multiplied 5 times so 20 loaves of bread fed 100 people. Out of 3 worlds where life has been created the one that makes the most progress will be the world Deserving the Inheritance. The ones which have not progressed will be dominated by the other and be eliminated. Jesus died so when the creators returned to earth you wouldn’t think there was an alien invasion. After Jesus died he was resuscitated with the help of the creators. I really recommend that you read the book, “Intelligent Design Message from the designers” watch the 8 min. video click on the baby in the womb. then download the book for free. Otherwise if you want a paper back book you can get it on the site or used at amazon. If everyone reads this book you will have a better understanding of the truth and the shackles and chains can come off. Thanks a raelian who is not afraid of change for the better.

  • Jim Reed

    I don’t think the aliens would want a temple. I think they would just communicate with us over the internet.

  • Teresa Ickes

    yes lol they already do. but they do want the embassy to be built so they know that we want their presence here too. We have a lot of catching up to do and the only way that we can make it comprehendible is to have a safe place to go where both parties won’t feel threatened, where we can sleep and have breakfast with them and ask any question that our hearts desires…it will be hard for most to make this kind of change but i would like to help assist them for a hopefully smooth paradigm shift. I hope that you can bring some people to chat with me here and share nice thoughts. Thanks for your intriguing communications.

  • Gregory Peterson

    I have no idea about what you’re talking about.

  • Teresa Ickes

    We are their final upgrade. it has taken millions of years to get to this point. they came here 25,000 yrs ago to seed us. They loved us but didn’t want us to destroy them so they kept us in ignorance until the end of the Age. We are Here. lots to explain. would you please read the book? “intelligent design message from the designers”

  • Teresa Ickes

    U said you wished they did a better job. I said, they say we are already perfect but if we don’t think we are then were not. Its a level of self awareness. Kinda like you are what u eat. as an example. They want us to love them as their parents Not as Gods. Because some of them were human once. but some have never incarnated and are only of light.

  • Teresa Ickes

    do you want to learn? if i told you everything you thought you knew was wrong? would you want to know the real story? or as some would say. The Truth?

  • Chris Paddock

    it is time that we come together as a people & unite – ????? – than divide us any further by bad choices called history. – this doesn’t make sense and history contains good, bad and neutral choices.

    We now know – who knows?

    & can accept the technology that our ancestors have created us in their image – if this is their image one would have hoped that they could have done better; I mean, come on, all this wisdom and they can’t provide us with teeth or knees that last much more than forty years use. Do they suffer from cancer and senility?

    in a laboratory with a variety of DNA’s from different star systems as we have the scientific data – what data, which star systems?

    that can explain this with at least 64 different epigenetic DNA’s. However, I know we are from among 100’S if not more. – How do you know this, are you sure you understand that epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in phenotype that do not involve changes in the underlying DNA sequence?

    We have been here before. – When?

    Lets not keep making the same mistakes twice. – ????

    Lets learn from our past – what past?

    and move forward to our future with Love by ending WAR! – nice idea – any suggestions as to how you’re going to change humanity since the “ancestors” must have screwed up first time mustn’t they?

    The Elohim – the who/what?

    have preferred Jerusalem because that is where they created their first descendants, the Jews. – nonsense, humanity evolved in Africa

    Which according to biblical resources have wandered for 40yrs in the desert. – nice story, no supporting evidence despite much searching

    That have been given this opportunity again to be forgiven and to my knowledge – how do you know?

    have denied the building of the final temple. But they can change their mind if they wanna open it. – ?????

    Remember the Elohim have picked those peasant people of non- religious views so they would be open for change & it wouldn’t hurt their psyche which comes from dogmatic religious opinions. – How can we remember things we didn’t (and still don’t) know?

    This doesn’t have to change your faith in believing that there are more intelligent beings in our universe – there may be, there may not be; we are looking for evidence (SETI)

    only open up to a better understanding, & come face to face with your god, Yourself. LET US BUILD THE FINAL TEMPLE! AS IT IS MENTIONED IN EZEKIEL 40-46. – ??????

    why do you want to know if I am an attorney?

    ISTM – it seems to me

    No – I don’t want to have our ET ancestors to land/return openly because there is no mystery about our ancestry – there is neither evidence nor need for any designer/ET interventionist.

  • Teresa Ickes

    Ok
    let me emphasize…Unite as (one) being on the same page? Like
    minds… Yes history has been 3 choices as you say but, for the most
    part of the time We have been dictated to! Stomped out, ambushed
    manipulated & even killed for thinking out side the box.

    We
    now Know – Raelians & any other individual thinker who isn’t
    afraid to stand alone not that we would stand alone but are willing
    to do so.

    They
    do Not suffer from cancer but some of the people on their planet due
    have mental issues and studies continue to this day to find out why
    such mutations happen. For the most of us they just want us to be
    happy that we now have been given this information & want us to
    love them like parents as they love us like their children. You will
    have to read the book to get more details I can’t remember all of it
    as I have even read it twice. They explain how to raise your
    children, government issues & the exact building of the Embassy
    as it is describe in Ezekiel. They are not fortune tellers because
    man in unpredictable but for the most part that have a good clue &
    are giving us the benefit of the doubt. They are counting on us to
    Wake Up!

    Tons
    of star systems to name but they go by Elohim which was in the Hebrew
    bible 2500 times before it was changed from a plural to a singular
    (Elohim means those who came from the sky) which meant God to the
    Hebrews which then became a singular which was false interpretations
    another is Pleiadians plus because they have grown over the
    millenniums. You might have to purchase the Sirius documentary. I
    was fortunate enough to see it for free because I was waiting for it
    to come out. This link here seems to be close to what I printed but
    it might not be exact maybe because data keeps changing so they are
    adding to it
    .http://www.siriusdisclosure.com/evidence/atacama-humanoid/

    However
    I do contain the proof because I printed it off in 2013.

    I
    am not claiming to be a scientist but yes I am sure! We were created
    with a 2 stranded double helix & one day in one after noon we
    will change in the blink of an eye and get plugged into a 12 stranded
    helix. You may have to listen to some pleiadian messages
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9HtZFb_VtM

    We
    have had many life times on many planets before earth- reincarnation?
    some have been able to use more of their brain like Einstein, Tesla &
    great thinkers of our past & present. I sometime wonder if Kahlil
    Gibran wasn’t Jesus in another time as I have seen his character come
    back every 100 yrs there about or even exist at the same time, you
    might wanna read the 5th Gospel

    http://www.amazon.com/Fifth-Gospel-Evidence-Historical-Crucifixion/dp/1577331818/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1428454019&sr=8-3&keywords=the+5th+gospel

    Keep
    in mind We Are Perfect as we are not broken and must give thanks and
    appreciation for being created, the rest will follow if you are
    curious enough to unveil yourself. Look up into the sky at night and
    connect with them, they are waiting for your response. Those who hate
    or are not curious to learn might never know what awaits them. Always
    be open minded so your inner thoughts can come through, that is how
    they speak with you at this time, in your consciousness. Build your
    future by thought with love of course.

    I
    didn’t say the Jews were seeded in Israel but to my knowledge the
    Ets have seeded the four continents Asia (Asians), Africa (black),
    North America (Indians) & South America (Latinos) we have moved
    around a lot and have been divided as well and inter breading did
    take place to keep the blood line pure. I guess there are DNA test
    you can get now days to show where your ancestry has been based out
    of. So were half breeds. We are One!

    As
    far as wondering for 40yr in the desert to my knowledge the
    Israelites have been fed manna which was made by ETs it was a
    machine that came down every so often to produce food & according
    to outside research the Israelites were to clean it too before it
    could be returned. It basically was chlorophyl of some special
    blue/green algae. Some unknown punishment. (The Ets were afraid to
    give us to much scientific knowledge cuz they thought we would
    destroy them if we had known about this information to soon) and they
    were probably right. (So Evil in the bible means science of
    knowledge) you could say they kept a lid on us.

    Knowledge
    of being forgiven? Because I read the book “Intelligent Design
    Message from the Designers” The jews will be punished again by not
    being aware of the final prophet Raels message from our creators, he
    was told by the Elohim human (Ets) that was where they wanted to
    build this Embassy and to my knowledge has been denied. (Solar Flares
    are on the rise and today Washington DC lost power during a press
    conference when questions came up about nuclear action & Iran.
    http://rt.com/usa/247617-dc-power-outage-state/

    I
    suppose there is little time left but, if the Jews had a wake up call
    and called up Rael & said we change our mind & YES we want
    you to build the final temple (embassy) here the cataclysms would be
    less destructive. In the book “Intelligent Design Message from the
    Designers” on page 176 “To the People of Israel” The Elohim
    tell the children of Israel Do Not go back to your home land until
    the Government decides weather the building will be built there or
    not cuz there will be a destruction and they want to have some Jews
    left to seed the world again. http://www.rael.org/message

    Our
    memory is in our DNA it is encoded there. Every thing you have said
    through out your life time is recorded inside of you, kinda like a
    computer chip holds data. This information will be revealed to you so
    you wont have to look to hard to find it. But until that moment it
    does help for you to seek to find. Meditate bring the peace in calm
    your spirit & when you are neutral things pop up for your
    questions. One might have never thought it could be that easy. The
    more you practice the better you get. I understand we have such busy
    lives we forget to feed the spirit.

    Why
    look for evidence when it is inside you? Understand this, the Elohim
    are waiting for man to connect with them telepathically through your
    thoughts & wishes to have contact. Here are some things that you
    might say, “Elohim I know you are out there among the stars I know
    you can hear me”, What do I have to do to deserve contact? “Elohim?
    What can I do to make a difference for humanity because I know I have
    not done enough.

    If
    you are familiar with SETI then you should know that there have been
    numerous contactees with live video footage & you can tell the
    film is old so no photo shop was available then like it is now.

    Attorney?
    I thought you were slightly cruel like an attorney nit picking on my
    grammar & such using coded language I wasn’t familiar with.

    I’m
    sorry you feel that there is no need for ET intervention. How much
    long do you think the world will go on being so destructive? They
    want to know your desires to connect with them telepathically first
    before they land so they won’t feel threatened. I will hope your
    desires will soften & your heart opens up a bit more and that you
    take down your guard on your spirituality. I will hope for you to
    research this out & maybe you can make it a new quest in your
    life. I will wish that you change your mind because that is what
    humans do as they learn.

    Thanks
    for your conversation

    Thank you for not railing against the Raelians. Most people would find doing so far too easy.

  • Don

    “there is no mystery about our ancestry”

    None? Really? We know it all? Funny. Very funny. I think we’re all bastards from the way the world is going.

  • Teresa Ickes

    I find it my responsibility to make clear any false interpretation of the movement & its purpose for building an embassy on earth. I am a raelian. Thank u for ur support

  • Craptacular

    No need to when they show up here and post, as Teresa I. has been kind enough to do.

  • Gregory Peterson

    “Seed us” and “loved us.” Are those euphemism for “had sex with us modern humans?” Hey, some of are sex with other humanoid species. I even have a few Neanderthal genes to prove it.

  • Teresa Ickes

    Yes that too! Have you? wow thats interesting! I believe you! where or how did find this? or are you just pulling my leg? lol some have a instant knowing of this & some do also find proof. do u have a story u would like to share?
