Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 1, 2010
Rael, founder and leader of the Raelian Movement (http://www.rael.org), today issued a statement in response to Stephen Hawking’s speculations about hostile extraterrestrials. Widely previewed in the popular media, Hawking’s pessimistic ruminations are part of an upcoming Discovery Channel television series.
“With these views, Hawking demonstrates that he’s not only physically handicapped but mentally handicapped by the degenerative disease of ‘evolutionism’ or ‘Darwinism,’ ” Rael said. “His fears about murderous, invading aliens are based on the theory of evolution – the myth of evolution, to be more precise. He’s afraid humans are inferior to aliens who might invade. That’s logical, but only if you accept the myth of evolution.”
Rael called evolution “a magical, irrational concept” that does great harm. “Hitler’s views about superior Aryans; slavery and apartheid; and Hawking’s delirium of aliens wiping out humanity all fit perfectly with the evolution myth,” he said, adding that he admires the stance taken by Swedish scientist Soren Lovtrup.
“Lovtrup said Darwinian evolution will one day be considered the greatest deceit in the history of science and that it’s anti-science and false,” he said. “I agree.”
And the truth about the origin of life on Earth?
“It’s the result of intelligent design, not by just one so-called godly designer but by extraterrestrial designers, plural, called the Elohim,” Rael said. “With intelligent design, you automatically have intelligent organization of the universe as well, organization based on peace and love, not on monsters ready to invade and destroy humanity.”
“Intelligent designers wouldn’t allow anyone to destroy their creation,” Rael said. “What’s more, with cosmic laws based on intelligent design, violent species wind up self-destructing before they can spread their violence to other planets.”
Is this a lesson for humanity?
“We can use weapons of mass destruction to eliminate ourselves,” Rael explained. “We don’t need alien invasions for that; we’re powerful enough and stupid enough to do it ourselves unless peace and love prevail. Stephen Hawking is doing a terrible thing by instilling fear. Fear leads to poor health, bad behaviors and the militaristic policy of weapons accumulation that can lead to humanity’s self-destruction. The world needs peace, love and global disarmament, not fear. And we must eliminate the myth of God and the myth of evolution, since both of these myths perpetuate fear and violence.”
