Just because you’re an atheist doesn’t mean you’re rational.
Good to know we have the Raelians to make that point for us with their new Las Vegas billboard:
You almost want to agree with them… until you notice the UFO in the sign and read the press release:
… there is no God or Devil. There’s no need to live in fear. We should enjoy our precious lives to the fullest while of course giving love all around us. Surely that’s a message even Christians recognize as one that Jesus taught. But, whether the source is the Bible, the Koran, or Greek or Roman mythology, all gods are myths, just as there’s no Santa Claus or Easter Bunny etc. What there are, however, are human beings who were advanced scientists who created all forms of life, known as the Elohim. You can read about them in the oldest versions of the Bible, and the oldest versions are always the less polluted versions.”
That look on your face is the one you get when you go from nodding in agreement to thinking What. The. Fuck. Just. Happened.
The Raelians believe the Elohim — a species of extraterrestrials — created life on earth.
They believe this because… well… they’re crazy. (Scientology almost seems respectable in comparison.)
This is the same group, if you recall, that claimed to have cloned a human being in 2002.
Here. You know you want to learn more about them:
God, I really hope nobody mistakes their billboards for one of ours…
