The 3 texts are quite complex in that they contain many ideas and concepts which, I think, many of the reviewers have not mentioned. I will get a few things that have been repeated by other reviewers out of the way: 1) Yes, you can find a free copy of this book at the Rael website and 2) Yes, this book provides an alternative to unguided Neo-Darwinian evolution and theistic creationism - it proposes that humanity was genetically engineered in a laboratory by technologically and scientifically advanced extraterrestrials who made humanity in their image. It is a teleological alternative with purpose and without God. However, how humanity was created is not the core focus of the collection or the message of the Elohim. There is much more to be found in the 3 texts in this collection.
I will provide some information that can be found in the three books:
Book 1: "The Book Which Tells The Truth"
This book documents the first encounter between the Elohim and Rael in 1973. The Elohim explain to Rael why they chose him and why they want him to be their ambassador on earth. The Elohim look exactly like us, but they can communicate telepathically. This is how they communicated with Rael in the first encounter. The Elohim explain that the Bible has many verses which speak of the Elohim. They review many verses from the Old Testament and the New Testament and they explain how many of the events in the Bible are really about them, not God. In fact, the Elohim argue that people in the past interpreted their actions as being divine because they were so technologically advanced that many had mistaken them to be Gods.
The Elohim in their home planet (which is about 1 light year away from Earth) decided to create life on Earth, but not all the Elohim were in agreement. One of the Elohim that was against the idea creating life on another planet was an extraterrestrial named Satan. Once humanity was created, humans began to develop their science too rapidly and some of the Elohim, out of fear that the creation might become too powerful; decided to kill off some of the humanity with nuclear weapons (the Flood), scatter humanity (Tower of Babel) and nuke those who wanted to get vengeance on the Elohim (Sodom and Gomorrah). The Elohim explain the purposes of Moses, Samson (as an example of someone who was able to use telepathy), Elijah, Satan, and many others. The Elohim explain verses Ezekiel which show that spaceships had been recorded in the Bible. One interesting thing to note is that some of the Elohim had procreated with humans and had produced some offspring - the Israelites. Because of this, the Israelites have a special place the eyes of the extraterrestrials as direct descendants of the Elohim. Jesus is explained as being a special messenger for the Elohim who did miracles with advanced technologies. He was killed, but was revived by the Elohim and taken away to their home planet. His purpose was to reach out to the whole world so that when the extraterrestrials returned in the future, people would not be fearful of them.
The Elohim want to help out humanity by providing them 25,000 years of advanced science and they want to appear to humanity, but since humans are not as advanced and peaceful yet, they feel threatened by us. Once a sufficient number of people on Earth embrace them, they will appear and provide us advanced technologies. The Elohim were created by other creators just like humans were created by the Elohim. This is an infinite cycle of creation on other planets. There are a few ideas which the Elohim desire to spread: "Geniocracy" - people should be governed by geniuses who can make the best decisions for humanity, humanity should have one currency and one language.
A few interesting facts on the Elohim and their planet are mentioned: the official language of their planet is similar to Hebrew, they live on average 10 time longer than humans, they can achieve eternal life by having their cells re-created by their advanced technology every time they die, they do not work in their planet since they have machines that do the work for them, they do not marry, they control their population size by limiting their offspring to two, they use contraceptives very often, they describe their culture and give a glimpse of what happens on their planet on an average day.
Book 2: "Extra-Terrestrials Took Me To Their Planet"
Rael writes about his early childhood and life. This book documents the second encounter between Rael. This occurred in 1975. Rael is lectured on how Earth needs to be more open and peaceful. Rael is take into the spaceship of the Elohim and taken to their planet. There he experiences servant robots that are so human like. Rael meets previous prophets who had brought the message before him such as Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, and Buddah. Yahweh, the Elohim who has been communicating the messages with Rael, expresses how Rael must establish an embassy in Israel for the Elohim to return to Earth. The "Keys" are guidelines about many phases in a person's life and social dimensions. One of the "Keys" is that when a believer dies, they should donate their body to science and keep only a bit of the forehead bone to have it be registered in a computer for when the Elohim judge us we can be re-created. Rael provides some guidelines on how to establish telepathic communication between humanity and the Elohim and emphasizes the power of meditation. The judgment day and the rewards for those who embrace the Elohim are discussed. The followers who are called the "Guides" are discussed.
Book 3: "Let's Welcome The Extra-Terrestrials"
This book is about frequently asked questions Rael receives from reporters. It contains many topics. Rael reveals new information that was concealed for a few years after the second encounter. Yahweh explains further on Satan. The truth of Rael's lineage is revealed - Yahweh is his father and he is also the father of Jesus. This means that Rael and Jesus are brothers! Yahweh discusses the upcoming nuclear cataclysm in context of the Book of Revelation. There is discourse on Raelianism as an atheist religion. Interestingly, there are testimonials by Guides on their experience as Raelians. Finally there are a few short and more recent encounters with the Elohim.
Overall, I liked this collection and was intrigued that Raelianism was a naturalistic (non-supernatural) religion. Recommended for those interested in learning about other religions.
I am a changed man after reading this... Everyone should read this book. Thanks Rael.
