Raelians want to set up an alien embassy

The Raelian Movement has been asking countries to host an embassy for welcoming extraterrestrials to Earth.
Founded in France in 1974 by Claude Vorilhon (now known as Rael), the Raelian religion centers around the belief that Earth and the human race were created through scientific means by a benevolent race of intelligent extraterrestrials known as the Elohim.

Most recently, the Raelians have been attempting to solicit the United Nations to organize an international conference where diplomatic arrangements for an alien embassy can be debated.

The ultimate goal of these talks would be to set up an embassy where an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization could be formally welcomed and introduced to our planet in the event of first contact.

Rael himself has declared the first Saturday of April "ET Embassy Day" to help raise awareness.

"As we prepare for our Embassy Day, we also intend to solicit the United Nations to organize the first International conference to discuss a new protocol to the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, provisionally titled, 'Optional Protocol Concerning Embassies for Extraterrestrials,'" said Raelian Guide Daniel Turcotte who has been assisting Rael on the project.

"More and more countries are showing interest as it becomes obvious that an extraterrestrial civilization is preparing our Humanity for an official contact, through an ever-increasing number of UFO appearances and very complex crop circles all over the world."

"We are confident that the UN will hear out and acknowledge the growing number of people who care for a proper and formal welcome for an out-worldly civilization."

You know these people are sensible when they make statements such as this: This is also of interest. I guess if you spend 3 billion years getting that single celled life right, the Elohim have demonstrated a willingness to invest resources where it counts - getting the details right. The 200ky getting the people right, well that makes sense. Invest your time where it needs to be invested: single celled life.

I remember listening to an interview with David Brin where the interviewer said something to the effect of "I understand that you are on a US government list of people to act as ambassadors should aliens ever land here"  He said that was true, but that he was confident that would never happen.

Meanwhile the poor elves are suffering from habitat loss. When will they get some consideration? We should be looking after our own imaginary creatures first. But no, no, it's all aliens this and aliens that.

There are rumors of an alien exchange in New Mexico where ships land and human get on the ship and aliens get off and are whisked away by black ops military.  Before it was a "thing", black, unmarked helicopters were often seen going in and out of that area.
