Something about this post struck me as odd in the beginning, then as I gave it a bit of a chance and skimmed through the index of this "book" I noticed quite a few topics that just screamed "slanted".
The very thought of Intelligent Design to me is simply contradictory to theology and is an attempt to validate what cannot be claimed by facts. I am sorry, but at this point I cannot agree with you that this book is the greatest thing ever, however for the sake of fairness I will give it a chance and edit my post later once I have read some of it.
It is probably very obvious that I am an atheist, however I am also open minded and willing to read/listen to any ideas/thoughts regarding the matter and have an intelligent discussion about it.
The one thing that still bugs me however is that you seem to be very adamant about pushing this book upon people to spread around, agenda maybe? Maybe not?
Since it claims in its own foreword that it is limited edition, how did you manage to come across it?
Either way I will return at a later date and update my initial post here with a review of your "super book" and maybe then I can formulate a more informed opinion on it.
For now my initial stance is that it is complete BS, but we will see.
From the above soure
Followers of Raëlism are believers in the Elohim, an advanced race of extraterrestrials who created life on earth. Raëlians are individualists who believe in sexual self-determination.
As advocates of the universal ethic and world peace, they believe the world would be better if geniuses had an exclusive right to govern. As believers of life in outer space, they hope that human scientists will follow the path of the Elohim by achieving space travel through the cosmos and creating life on other planets.
As believers in the resurrection of Jesus Christ through a scientific cloning process (which includes memory transfer) by the Elohim, they encourage scientific research to extend life through cloning, however critics outside are doubtful of its possibility.
The messages dictated to Rael explain that life on Earth is not the result of random evolution, nor the work of a supernatural 'God'. It is a deliberate creation, using DNA, by a scientifically advanced people who made human beings literally "in their image" -- what one can call "scientific creationism." References to these scientists and their work, as well as to their symbol of infinity, can be found in the ancient texts of many cultures. For example, in Genesis, the Biblical account of Creation, the word "Elohim" has been mistranslated as the singular word "God", but it is actually a plural word which means "those who came from the sky", and the singular is "Eloha" (also known as "Allah"). Indigenous cultures all over the world remember these "gods" who came from the sky, including natives of Africa (Dogon, Twa, etc.), America, Asia, Australia, and Europe.
Leaving our humanity to progress by itself, the Elohim nevertheless maintained contact with us via prophets including Buddha, Moses, Mohammed, etc., all specially chosen and educated by them. The role of the prophets was to progressively educate humanity through the Messages they taught, each adapted to the culture and level of understanding at the time. They were also to leave traces of the Elohim so that we would be able to recognize them as our Creators and fellow human beings when we had advanced enough scientifically to understand them. Jesus, whose father was an Eloha, was given the task of spreading these messages throughout the world in preparation for this crucial time in which we are now privileged to live: the predicted Age Of Revelation.

I wouldn't have thought the most important book ever written would be "copyright-- all rights reserved." If the fate of humanity is involved, shouldn't they be spreading the word for free?
