Well if they created us in their image, why are we as a whole unpredictable and scary to be around at times? Also, if I was a god, I could not condemn something or put it to death eternally. With that being said, I could let something suffer for a time if it would help it learn, but I could never, ever, just make something cease to exist. It seems criminal to me. Even the worst of the worst, if I was a god, I should be able to find a way to help it without doing it for them. I would be willing to invest the time and love for my creation to keep trying until the last one came home. It's far too easy to say something should be condemned and stripped of its existence, especially when the expectations set for this being seem unrealistic. Everyone of us have sinned in some form or another. We're not perfect, but by no means should we have life stripped from us eternally buy a god or being light years away. I would say that would be irresponsible, lazy, and without passion for their own creation. If I, a mere mortal can sit here and come to that conclusion in my heart, why can't they?

The Raelians are simply a group of people who have bee brainwashed by a charlatan. Their historic evidence is based on the work of people like von Daniken, which has been shown to be based on mistranslations and misinterpretations or ancient texts and art. Their scientific proof is even less convincing, by making claims such as since we can create life in a lab, clearly we must have been created in a lab by a more advanced extraterrestrial race. And let's not forget Rael's exorbitant speaking fee of $100,000. While I have pretty much summed it up already, here are two sites that also shine light on the faults and fallacies that Claude Vorhilon used in creating his cult.

Eternal life exists, and can be achieved scientifically. When you die, the Elohim grabs one of your cells, automatically, and you are judged. If your life was good, meaning, you never brought harm unto others, and if you did good things for other people for the sake of doing them, you will be granted eternal life, in heaven (on their planet).
