Another misleading headline -- the 1978 claim was not made by the Raelians. As if a goof-ball organization like the Raelians could be over 20 years old. Read the damn article before posting the headline. Fool.

Of course, that's not to suggest the Raelians claim is any less likely to be a hoax. I'm just saying.

Even with everything said by XeneX, this should be an obvious tag...

So no mutant clone superhuman race anymore? Damn.

well...they're good at cloning their own lies anyways.

So they weren't responsible for the Backstreet Boys and N Sync project?

In 1978 the technology wasn't proven. Now it is.

And I, for one, welcome our new Raelian overlords. I can be helpful in rounding up others to . . . toil in their underground clone caves.

"In his former life, Rael was a French journalist called Claude Vorilhon. He took the name of Rael and started a group of true believers called the Raelians. One of the rules of the group is that all the women had to sleep with Rael. Isn't it interesting how all these cults have that rule? "

In my cult, the only rule is to never talk about the clone club.

The child was born without a penis. A serious birth defect in some countries.

What? A baby born without a penis? How is this poor child supposed to write its name in the snow without use of hands or sticks?

20 YEARS AGO IN FIRST YEAR UNIVERSITY MY ROOMMATE FINALLY REVEALED WHAT HE "BELIEVED" WHEN HE GAVE ME A COPY OF "SPACE ALIENS TOOK ME TO THEIR PLANET", BY CLAUDE VORHILION OR WHATEVER HIS NAME IS. I HAD TO LAUGH. BACK THEN THEIR LOGO WAS A SWASTIKA INSIDE OF THE STAR OF DAVID. I NOTICED THIS WEEK THAT THEY'VE CHANGED IT.

ANYWAY, "RAEL" BEING THE NAME OF THE LEAD CHARACTER IN GENESIS' "LAMB LIES DOWN ON BROADWAY", ONE CAN ONLY ASSUME MR VORHILION WAS CONSUMING COPIOUS QUANTITIES OF LSD WHILE LISTENING TO THE ALBUM ONE DAY. AND CAME UP WITH THIS NONSENSE THAT IS NOW "NATIONAL NEWS".

HA.

feh, the raelians are just as much religious tards as fundamentalist x-tians or extreme muslims, they should all rot in hell
 
2003-01-01 05:11:19 PM
seeing as it's 25 years later and we actually have cloned a sheep, i think it's possible that this isn't a hoax

Writing with capslock on makes baby Rael cry.
 
2003-01-01 05:20:38 PM
The reason you never hear about Dolly anymore is because she was never a true clone and scientists have been unable to reproduce the experiment since.

Davynelson, turn off your caps lock, motherfarker.

Shouldn't that have read:
"Writing with caps lock on makes clone baby Rael cry" ... ?

What's the deal with Washington Post articles?

I thought fark didn't allow annoyance sites that required you to register/take a survey/have cookies/javascript on before viewing to be linked on the main page?

Is Washington Post filling the pockets of Fark with advertising money or is this an ongoing mistake? Seems that washingtonpost.com just started doing this a month or so ago.. Before that, never had problems..

Disable cookies within your browser to see the annoyance.. Not sure if the survey is for everyone, but it's annoying none-the-less..

Scroll to the bottom of the article and you'll see that:
"Staff researcher Lucy Shackelford contributed to this report."

I wonder if she's any relation to Rusty Shackelford?

Obscure King of the Hill reference anyone?

An insane group of people sending insane press releases to the media? Nah.

Wait till the Raelians perfect their science of "uploading" consciousness and brain transplants.

Slowly the master plan takes shape...

boohoo-ha! ha! ha!

Id call Shenannigans but I think its a bit obvious to most people with common sense.

To those of you who believe this Rael shiate, go for it.

I personally agree with the "remove safety warnings from products and let nature take its course" idea 100%

The only thing that scares me is how much emphasis this Raelian group puts on having lots and lots of sex with eachother. I dont want the offspring of one of these whack-jobs dating my future daughter.
