Mass suicides are not limited to UFO cults.  You should see what happened to the Catholic community back at the turn of the first Millennium.

So.... This is the plot for a lost episode of the X-Files right? Mulder and Scully show up and discover the women who had surgery can now pick up NASA radio signals with their new genitals, and the medical team are all snake-headed aliens being protected by The Smoking Man. Right?

And I hate to be the obvious one here, but there's actually more proof of comets existing than any God existing.  So while their actions were foolish, aside from that whole 'mass suicide' thing, they had more reason to believe in 'their' god than Christians do.

I don't think they worshipped a comet, per se. The comet was just a sign. The aliens were telling them to kill themselves upon the sign of the comet which would then beam up their souls or something.

If more religions really focused on real tangible change like this, the world could be a better place. Of course, there are those who think killing the unbeliever is that kind of real tangible change. So... A wash?

They didn't worship the comet, they thought there was a spaceship following it that would pick up their souls or whatever.  So it was just as dumb as any religion.

Time to drop an education bomb on this thread.

http://skeptoid.com/episodes/4059 + Who Are the Raelians, and Why Are They Naked?

The Raelians are naked and they worship space aliens.


tl;dr Audio Mp3 Version!

http://skeptoid.com/audio/skeptoid-4059.mp3


The Raelians are actually doing some good with this. FGM is a horrible farking thing. Its completely inhuman. Its worse then that, it barbaric and fark, its just horrible. The fact that other women become quislings and help to force this on other women... I  think Im going to go be sick for a bit now.

I thought the space ship that was coming for them was sort of hidden behind the comet, that's why you couldn't actually see it.

To be fair, every religion is a UFO cult. Just most modern religious people have a disconnect between the bright flying objects which carried god and his angels in their religious writings, and the bright flying objects seen in our skies regularly.

The special hell is too good for 'em.  No, these vile excuses for humans need to end up in a circle of hell where females are dominant slave-drivers, and males are emasculated daily with rusty razor wire, only to have it bleed acid freely until it grows back the next day, just to have it all happen again.  Even Prometheus would favor his punishment for giving Man fire over that.

So, are the Raelians a "cult" like scientology, the branch dividians, or the heaven's gate group where people are brought in, brainwashed, and fleeced before killing themselves, or is it some sort of epic troll, like the Flying Spaghetti Monster or the Church of the Subgenius?

If they're giving these women their lives back because they're committed to "unalloyed joy", then bravo.  If they're going to do this to attract desperate people so they can become mindless brainwashed minions, then they're little better than the people who mutilated these women in the first place.

I hung out with Raelians for a brief time in Chicago in 2000, including the daughter of the red haired French lady doing the cloning experiments (she later was reportedly pregnant with a clone). Best parties EVAR!!! Crazy in the best way, fun as hell, loving, easy going people. Really into sex and sensuality, erotic spirituality, etc....good times, good times. God, my life has gotten really boring.

While I agree that male circumcision is unnecessary, it pales in comparison to what FGM does to a woman's genitals.
 
2013-08-25 11:40:13 AM
What I don't understand about FGM is these girls all know it is horrible and live with the pain, yet still continue to do it to their daughters and perpetuate it.

Not to defend them, but in the interest of accuracy, I don't think the WBC has ever come out as condemning women with FGM, nor have they condoned/encouraged the practice.
 
2013-08-25 11:57:44 AM
Apparently women possess another eight inches of unseen clitoral erectile tissue that lies under the skin, arching around the vagina. "Two inches longer than the average penis," says Bowers, archly.

All I can think of now:

Seriously though, this is excellent. FGM is nothing less than a human rights violation, and people performing it should be shot on sight. "It's culture!!11!!" is never an excuse for mutilating someone.
