OFFICIAL REPLY TO JAREL
(In response to Jarel's message regarding Mark Woodgate's testimony and resignation from the Raelian Movement)
On Dec 1st 2010 I sent my resignation and testimony to the Raelians of Oceania. The response? Overwhelming support and gratitude that I had chosen to share my findings. I also learned that many of these people had their own doubts concerning Rael's authenticity.
As anticipated, the Raelian guide for Oceania, Jarel Aymonier, replied to my testimony to defend Rael and the Movement of which he has been part for more than 30 years.
Given the nature of Jarel's reply and his attempt to paint me as a negative and frustrated ex-Raelian, it was necessary to respond.
(Note: I have always had the utmost respect and admiration for Jarel. He is very passionate man, dedicated to his role as Continental guide, and has always defended the Movement for what he believes to be true)
Many people commented that the style of Jarel's replies confirmed what I wrote in my testimony, namely that he would say I had succumbed to negativity and that Raelians should not have contact with me at all...
"If you read Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr you will end up with less love and more hatred towards RAEL and the Raelians, and you may end up like Mark. So preserve yourself from any negative influence and especially from the one of the frustrated ex raelians that will bring you further away from love and wisdom. I recommend to avoid all contact as negativity is contagious"
And in regard to Jean-Denis, Jarel wrote:
"If you choose to listen to Jean-Denis you will shape your mind with bullshit or hatred towards RAEL and Raelians and you end up thinking bullshit and leaving the movement"
Jarel is trying to paint me as a negative person who is full of hatred. (The Raelians who know me well will quickly realise that this couldn't be any further from the truth) As predicted, Jarel stamps his authority by recommending that Raelians avoid all contact with me.
My reasons for going public and revealing my findings have nothing to do with any hatred toward Rael and the Raelians whatsoever - this is pure propaganda. On the contrary: It was done out of genuine concern for the Raelians who have been a huge part of my life for the last 16 years.
After extensive investigation into the Raelian Movement I concluded that Raelians are part of a very clever and well perpetrated hoax. Given that the Raelian Movement also has many positive aspects - namely the teachings of self development and meditation, I was faced with a 'dilemma' as to whether I would reveal my findings.
This 'dilemma' was easily resolved by asking myself the question, "As a Raelian, would I prefer to go through life completely ignorant of these findings and continue to devote my time and money to a 'dream' based on a lie? Or would I prefer to know the truth, to contribute in other ways to humanity and continue on the path of self development?"
I chose the latter because it would have been morally and ethically wrong to remain silent and quite simply, because this information is too important NOT to share.
Why is Jarel so quick to judge Jean-Denis? Has his perception of what really happened been tainted by Rael?
And why do so many Raelians believe that he was expelled from the Movement, especially when there is ample evidence that Jean-Denis actually resigned?
"As for Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr, he has been expelled from the movement by the council of the wise because as far as I remember he was abusing his position as a Guide. So Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr didn't leave the movement because RAEL told him he lied. He was expelled.
I remember RAEL saying to the council of the wise to use clemency towards Jean-Denis in regard to his great contribution to the movement.
So on one side you have the Maitreya RAEL with all the wisdom and the insight we know him and Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr, an ex Raelian who has been expelled from the structure for having taken advantage of some of us."
Many Raelians, and in particular the guides, have been told by Rael that Jean-Denis was expelled from the Movement in 1990.
Case in point:
I contacted a prominent Canadian guide who has been a part of the Raelian structure since 1980.
Her reply in regard to Jean-Denis' departure from the Movement is as follows:
"I was aware when this case happened with Jean-Denis St-Cyr in 1990. He had financial problem at that time, and he took advantage of his position to take money from the movement. The Wise Council wanted to meet him and see how they could help him, but he refused to go, so he was expelled (of course Jean-Denis said he quits). The Prophet always told him even many years after, if he reimbursed the money he stole he will find out his same position."
And in a private email Jarel sent me, he wrote:
What I know is that there was a council of the wise regarding Jean-Denis taking money from the movement or Raelians. I don't remember exactly but there was an abuse of power.
I don't know if his resignation happened while he was going through the council of the wise (which is a painful and humiliating thing to go through for a Raelian) or after. But I would bet it is connected.
He must have been demoted and/or expelled for a certain period of time. Or maybe his resignation cut short the sentence. But what I am quite sure of is the synchronicity of the timing of going through the council and his resignation (during or soon after is not so important after all). So to say he resigned and was not expelled is a bit dubious. He could have resigned to avoid the humiliation of having been demasked as a thief.
The Guides have been told by Rael that Jean-Denis stole money, that the council of the wise convened and he was expelled.
Or could it be that this version of events is nothing more than a complete fabrication?
Jean-Denis is very clear about what happened and it is nothing like the 'official' version of the Guides.
Here are some images that prove Jean-Denis resigned and was not told to leave.
(Also note the cover of the Raelian magazine, where it clearly states "Resignation of the National Guide!")
Jean-Denis gave his resignation on March 20th, 1990 in a letter that he addressed to Rael and the Canadian guides of that time. (It should also be noted Jean-Denis possesses a handwritten letter that Rael addressed to him dated April 17th, 1990 from Tokyo regarding the subject of his resignation)
Nb: Some Raelians have asked whether I suspect that Jarel is a part of the deception? Intuitively, I would say no. (Jarel's father was the 1st Raelian and financed the launch of Rael's first book)
At the age of 18 Jarel's father gave Rael's book to Jarel to read and for over 30 years Jarel has devoted himself to the Raelian Movement. Jarel's words, actions and level of commitment, is indicative of someone who trusts Rael without question and who has lost his sense of objectivity)
More info about Jean-Denis resignation can be found at:
Jarel admits that in 1984 Rael did in fact tell Jean-Denis that he lied about meeting the Elohim, but he states there could be adequate reasons for his lie...
"RAEL said many times over that he is telling the truth and has told Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr once that he was lying about his encounter. RAEL told Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr at the time of his deep depression in 1984 when being confronted with so many obstacles he wanted to renounce his mission as a prophet. He cut his hair and disappeared from the movement for a few months wanting to give it all up. I can easily understand why he could have told Jean-Denis he never had an encounter. He wanted to be Claude Vorilhon again and not RAEL. A bit like the prophet Jonas who also didn't want to do what Yahweh asked him to.
Another explanation could be to test Jean-Denis Saint-Cyr of his fidelity to the messages as he could have been looking for a possible replacement."
Jarel also says:
"RAEL could in his depression have purposely lied to escape his mission. What I know is when RAEL was back and out of depression he has repeated again and again he was telling the truth..."
Until Jarel's email, most of us had heard or had been told that Jean-Denis was lying about Rael's confession. The guides always stated that Rael never confessed at all, but now Jarel, a Continental Guide who has been a part of the Movement for many years, has stated that Rael might have confessed after all!
As I mentioned in my testimony, Jean-Denis describes in great detail the actual events that took place in 1984 in his book, "Confessions of Rael."
For those Raelians who speculate that this was a yet another 'test' invented by Rael or the Elohim, it should be made clear that at no point did Rael ever state to Jean-Denis that it was in fact, a test! The hallmark of an authentic Raelian test (such as the one I was subjected to when I first joined the Raelian structure and to which many other Raelians can attest) is that the subject is ALWAYS told that they passed OR failed the test.
Moreover, in moments of weakness and emotional turmoil, Rael confided in Jean-Denis more than once that he never met the Elohim and he had made the whole thing up.
Jarel also states:
Mark doesn't know Rael's side of the story what he meant and why, RAEL should be the first one Mark should have turned to in his investigation or one of RAELS assistants. RAEL could in his depression have purposely lied to escape his mission. What I know is when RAEL was back and out of depression he has repeated again and again he was telling the truth. So what to believe? I guess it depends very much of what you want to believe...
This statement from Jarel clearly demonstrates the extent of his indoctrination and that he is unwilling to question anyone other than Rael's version of events.
This is made very obvious with statements such as "Rael said he was telling the truth" and "Rael said that..." etc
If I had asked Rael about what really happened, or one of Rael's assistants as Jarel suggests, is it really plausible that we would hear a different version of events? As the previous example demonstrates, that answer is clearly, "no." The Guides version of events is always in perfect sync with what Rael has told them and therefore goes unquestioned.
Jean-Denis was Rael's assistant from 1976 to 1990 and was closer to Rael than any other person at that time. Everything Jean-Denis witnessed was first hand, therefore it is Jean-Denis who is the most qualified person to answer.
Despite what Raelians have been led to believe (and want to believe) Jean-Denis has come forward with these revelations to protect those people who decide to follow Rael and who are unaware of the extent of Rael's deception, lies and manipulation.
Raelians will go to extraordinary lengths to defend the 'last prophet' and defend their truth. They justify to themselves that by ignoring the recent information they have passed yet another 'test' from the Elohim, that they are somehow superior, and those people who have left the Movement and /or dare to speak out, were obviously never true Raelians in the first place ...
(Jean-Denis was well aware that Raelians would try to discredit him as this is part of the Raelian indoctrination)
Why has Jean-Denis finally chosen to speak out and expose the lies of Rael? In the words of Jean-Denis, "It is out of the question that such a secret disappears with him."
Concerning the books of Jean Sendy.
Jarel wrote in a private email:
"Keen to see if there is anything substantial against what is written in the messages - the so called contradictions by Sage were insignificant for me"
The "so called contradictions" that Sage pointed out in the Messages were "insignificant" for Jarel, but so far it still seems that Rael and the guides (including Jarel) have all avoided addressing these points! They brush them off as "insignificant" yet they have no good answers! What does this mean?
Those people who take the time to study Sendy's books will quickly realise that Rael's book has more in common with Jean Sendy's books than ALL the other books ever written on this subject.
I will conclude by saying, all is NOT as we have been led to believe and I hope that you will do your own research. Raelians need to reconcile whether they can continue to support Rael and the Movement if and when they conclude that the entire foundation of the Movement has been built on a lie.
Above all, keep an open mind and do not be afraid to question. Raelians have every right to question their area managers, their guides, and especially Rael himself, regarding anything that seems a little 'out of the ordinary.' Whether it is an unusual comment made by Rael made in a Rael Science email, or the claim that Clonaid has produced 13 cloned babies - the time, energy and money that you commit to the Raelian Movement justifies an intelligent and verifiable answer.
Ps: Many people have asked me, "So...what do I believe now?"
My reply is simply this. The ancient astronaut theory (as proposed by Eric Von Daniken, Jean Sendy and many others) still holds the most weight for me and I consider this to be the most logical answer for our origins.
What has become very obvious to me is that some Raelians seem to think that those who have left the movement have also abandoned the idea that we could have been created by extraterrestrials!
One can still rationally conclude that intelligent design is the most probable option without believing that Rael is the prophet of the Elohim!
