Is God an alien or are aliens God ? The Bible as science fiction ? Is Claude Rael crazy, a con man or the last in a long line of prophets such as Moses, Christ, Mohammad, Guru Nanak, The Bab and Joseph Smith ? Is this account the ultimate close encounter to eclipse the likes of Whitely Strieber's Communion and Travis Walton's Fire in the sky ?
If any of these questions are of interest to you then buy this book - the answers are all there waiting for you...

The most Intelligent book I ever read 26 Nov. 2006
By Andre Julien - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are 3 possible options for the origin of life:

A) Neo-Darwinism and Abiogenesis: A speculative theory, unproved yet, with many anomalies and struggling against the improbability barrier and the complexity, beauty and diversity of life.

B) Theist Intelligent Design: A supernatural explanation, the Almighty God, with mysterious abilities and it's contradictions. For those who believe in magic and sudden creation of something from nothing.

C) Atheist Intelligent Design : In a few years, it will be experimentally proved that Human Intelligence with sufficient knowledge of DNA and Genetic Engineering can create any form of life they wish.

This book expands on Option C) an atheist design by advanced Extra-terrestrials, and their revelations are amazing that every human being on earth should know.

Extraterrestial Intelligent Design 23 Dec. 2008
By Eduardo Prats - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
MOVE OVER DARWIN AND GOD BELIEVERS- Intelligent Design by Rael in my views is the most logical and scientifically feasible theory on how life began on earth. This is a true story about a very especial extraterrestrial encounter that took place over 35 years ago in France. The extraterrestrial reveals to Rael that is was they that had genetically created all forms of life on earth, humans included with their highly advance mastery of DNA. It was all created by genetic artist. He also reveals to Rael that they are the Elohim from the bible and that the word Elohim had been mis-transcribed to the word God when in fact Elohim means in ancient Hebrew "those that came from the sky" I believe This book has the power to change the world to a much better world full of LOVE,PEACE AND HOPE for humanity.

THE book of the 21st century! 16 Jan. 2010
By N. Gary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are many books that have been written about the origins of life on Earth, but none as compelling as Intelligent Design, Message from the designers: You are in for an incredible journey through religion and especially science to find your true roots. I was mesmerized by what I read, I couldn't put the book down - I know it is a cliche but the information found in this book truly changed my life from A to Z, giving it meaning and daily "joie de vivre"! This book is a tremendous source of hope and positive energy. But don't take my word for it... Read it! You wont regret it!

Novel explanation of the origin of life ! 6 May 2007
By Mark Proulx - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The more and more science research evolve, the more that book start to make sense. Keep in mind it was originally written in 1973, way before our recent understanding of genetic engineering and knowledge of deep space and universe. If some people don't see the author as a prophet, they have to admit that he is at least a great visionary man. It is a very interesting novel explanation of the origin of life and what our society could become one day.

Intelligent Design, A message from the designers 29 Mar. 2010
By Osio Lezer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The term "Intelligent Design" was coined by creationists to suggest that certain attributes of living creatures and of the world we live in are best explained by the a direct influence or design, rather than by an undirected process such as natural selection. The author of this book uses this phrase as a description of his own belief, that an advanced race of extraterrestrials created life on earth. Whether the title change was made to call attention to a parallel, or simply to disguise the "aliens talked to me" vibe of the original title ("The Message Given to me by Extraterrestrials"), that is up to the reader to decide.

The author wrote three separate books that are aggregated in this volume.
He takes events from the bible and tries to explain them as visitations from aliens. As an example, he refers to Genesis 1:1: "In the beginning Elohim created Heaven and Earth." The author quotes a literal translation of Elohim from the Hebrew, "Those that came from the sky" and uses it as a plural word to describe a race of aliens. Thus, Elohim "the people" replaces the term "God" as far as this book is concerned. The author expands on this by saying, "they created the earth or, in reality, discovered the earth and realized it contained all that was necessary for life."

In the first book, the author puts forth some interesting alternate explanations for familiar Bible events, and remains fairly detached and scientific about his theories. I was intrigued by some of the things he wrote about, things that filled in many of the blanks I had about the Bible, myself. He presented the events recorded in the Bible as a history book by an ancient people that used the best local references they could to describe space men in space ships. Taken alone, one could read this book without the self-serving religious belief system suggested by the second and third books.

However, the second book (which Rael wrote some years later) goes deeply into extra-terrestrial visitations and communications, and outlines an entire cult/religion built around the Elohim, one that includes free love and wife swapping. When we get to the third book (again, written years later), Rael reveals that the Elohim artificially inseminated his mother, and he is the true brother of Jesus Christ and is here to fulfill Revelations "Second coming of Jesus Christ." Here we hit the paydirt of insanity and misplaced morals that characterize the latter editions of his work.

The belief system of "Raelians" (a self-applied name) is extensive and based around the idea that humanity must achieve peace in order to take the next step and connect with other alien races. There are many other things one can do to be truly worthy, including the time-honored practice of paying a tithe to the church. Rael frees himself from any taint in book two by stating that "his mission on earth is done" and that, "no matter what happens" and "no matter what Claude does," he has secured eternal life with the Elohim. This conveniently allows for the many sexual liaisons he encourages in his books.

Ultimately, this book is not for the reader who wishes an alternative view of the events in the Bible, or someone interested in possible alien origins for life on earth. This is a book for people interested in the Raelian movement or Raelian Church, as created by Claude Rael.
