I’m a little envious of Raël

Among his many characteristics Raël is a bit of a bad ass. Sure he runs a sex cult that is mostly full of men, but he has been largely a force for good in the GMO/Cloning debate and he gets to do a lot of cool stuff. While he does advocate Intelligent Design (of which I am not a fan) his presence within that movement is more of a discredit to them than it is a credit (an effect he doesn’t seem to have on the GMO issue). On top of that he manages to surround himself with adoring followers where ever he goes and he even gets to drive race cars, how cool is that?

    It’s hard to tell when people on the internets are being sarcastic.

    Do you really believe that the flaky leader of a UFO cult damages creationism when he speaks out for that, while when he speaks about GMOs (including living furniture engineered to have self-cleaning fur), he advances that cause?? I suggest you read up on a phenomenon known as ‘confirmation bias.’

    The thing is that he lobbies for GMO’s and funds research, while he just espouses beliefs in ID. He isn’t perfect, but largely he is a force for good. He is still the flakey leader of a sex cult.
