The Yaohnanen tribe on the southern island of Tanna in Vanuatu worship Prince Philip as a god, believing him to be the son of an ancient spirit who inhabits a nearby mountain. How exactly they came to believe in the prince’s divinity is unclear, but it appears that at some point in the 1950s they merged a Christian belief in a returning messiah with the respect accorded to His Royal Highness by the British authorities in what was then the colony of New Hebrides.

Rael also founded Clonaid, a company that claims to have cloned a human child.
5. The Church of All Worlds
The Church of All Worlds is a neo-pagan religion founded in 1962 by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart and his wife Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart.

Recently, following in the tradition of being inspired by literature, Mr Zell-Ravenheart founded the Grey School of Wizardry, modeled on Hogwarts, the school in the Harry Potter novels.
