Raëlism teaches that an extraterrestrial species known as the Elohim created humanity using their advanced technology. An atheistic religion, it believes that the Elohim have historically been mistaken for gods. It holds that throughout history the Elohim have created forty Elohim/human hybrids who have served as prophets preparing humanity for news about their ultimate origins. Among those listed as prophets are The Buddha, Jesus of Nazareth, and Muhammad, with Raël himself being the fortieth and final prophet. Raëlists believe that since the Hiroshima bomb of 1945, humanity has entered an Age of Apocalypse in which it is threatening itself with nuclear annihilation. It argues that humanity must find a way of harnessing new scientific and technological development for peaceful ends, and that once this has been achieved the Elohim shall return to Earth to share their technology with humanity and usher in a utopia.- Wikipedia
The premise of “Scientific Atheism” as taught in Raelism, where Satan’s seed (Gen. 3:15) can claim his hybrid human-Elohim nature is higher than the Elohim including YHWH God, clarifies how the Man of Sin can oppose God, exalt himself above God while showing himself to be God:
“who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God
(ὁ ἀντικείμενος καὶ ὑπεραιρόμενος ἐπὶ πάντα λεγόμενον θεὸν)
or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. -(2 Thess. 2:4 NKJV)
An enigmatic saying. To illustrate, substitute the number “1” as belonging to “all that is called God”. How can “the man of sin” “oppose 1” and “exalt himself above 1” while “showing that he is 1”?
Paul provides the interpretive “key” when he says these parallel actions (opposing and exalting himself) are directed at everything called God (πάντα λεγόμενον θεὸν) and NOT any specific Deity.
Scientific Atheism puts ALL Elohim in the same “extraterrestrial category”, blaspheming God as like His angels (Rev. 13:6). Then the Man of sin opposes calling the Elohim “gods”, exalting his hybrid human-Elohim nature as superior showing “he (alone) is [true] God.”
This fits two other enigmatic sayings in Daniel, that the Antichrist will “intend to change times and law” (Dan. 7:25). That is, he intends to usurp the foundation of human society, its concept of God. He casts God’s “truth to the ground” (Dan. 8:12).
Satan is already seeding this “strong delusion” of Scientific Atheism among mankind, UFO cults such as Raelism speak of the coming “Elohim Designers” of mankind.
