Clonaid - The first human cloning company
CLONAIDô was founded in February 1997 by RaŽl who is the leader of the Raelian Movement, an international religious organization which claims that life on Earth was created scientifically through DNA and genetic engineering by a human extraterrestrial race whose name, Elohim, is found in the Hebrew Bible and was mistranslated by the word "God". The Raelian Movement also claims that Jesus was resurrected through an advanced cloning technique performed by the Elohim.
Former French journalist Claude Vorilhon, who now calls himself Rael, claims to be a direct descendant of extraterrestrials who created human life on Earth through genetic engineering. A company founded by his followers announced on February, 2004 that the first human clone has been born -- a 7-pound baby girl dubbed "Eve."
Eve was created using DNA from the mother's skin cells and is a genetic twin of her mother, a 31-year-old American citizen.
The Raelians eventually hope to develop adult clones into which humans could transfer their brains, Rael said. He said "my ultimate goal is to give humanity eternal life through cloning."
