This is the first time that I am in Africa on a December 13… And it is for me a deep joy, because my Father and I, we love Africa: This continent is what counts the most. And do not think that I say this to please you, thinking that when Rael is in Asia he says that Asia is what counts the most, and when he is in Oceania he says that it’s Oceania… No, the continent that is the most important in the eyes of the Elohim is Africa! Why? Because you are inhabitants of a continent that has preserved an extraordinary purity and you are not handicaped by your culture like the Occidentals are.
I know that many of you still live with this sort of inferiority complex because of the Europeans. Your biggest ennemy, it’s not colonizers, and it’s not colonization, whether political, economical, cultural or religious — it’s you yourself. Your biggest enemy is you, whenever you think that you are inferior to white people. And you all do think so… I know, but it is false. You are not at all inferior to the whites. In fact, you are a little bit superior. Think about it! Let these sentences penetrate you!
You are a little bit superior to the whites. Why? Because you have the purity they have lost. The have lost their purity and their innocence because of their culture and mostly because of their crimes. Crimes such as slavery, colonization, and all what you have suffered from. You have been victims — they, they have been guilty, and when one feels guilty, one loses his/her purity, one loses his/her freshness, and at the same time one becomes embittered, and more and more disgusting, lacking in love, and thus, step by step, the civilisation shrinks and ends up disappearing.
Africa still has its purity. Africans should be conscious of that.
I remember having often heard during my many travels… “Ah, the whites have invented everything, the whites have discovered everything and we, poor Africans, we have done nothing.” Don’t ever say that! They have had the chance at certain moments to discover certain things, but it’s not all of them. The majortiy of them, they are idiots. They have had some geniuses, who were born by chance in their civilisation.
The majority of whites are incapable of inventing gunpowder, electricity or genetics. They were only a few of them who have invented, but all of them say loudly: “we have invented the plane.” They don’t even know what it is. They would not even know how to build one. But they have the impression that the discoveries made by certain geniuses were made by them. Have no depth! They are stupid and short-sighted. There are a few brilliant ones. But, these brilliant ones have never committed crimes against your culture, against your people, against Africa — never. Those who came to Africa were invaders, stupid colonizers who took advantage of things they never invented, such as gunpowder or planes, and they used them to dominate Africa politically and culturally, and to abuse you. So have no complex!
The message I am bringing… is that you should train the young people.
Not like what the Occidentals want you to do, by going through the industrialisation process so that they can keep an advance on you and continue to consider you as developing countries. This is neo-colonisation.
I would like to see all the African children in every school have access to computers, and this should be the priority. Access to the internet should be immediate for all the populations here, because if you have access to these means of training, you will not be left behind, but you will be at the same level as the other countries.
Genetics also is very important. That’s why I came with Dr. Boisselier, who is in charge of the human cloning project. I hope that the human cloning laboratory will be built here.
I came also with my son, Ramuel, who is here — he manages a school of computer science in Paris. I would like to have Africans trained. He has agreed to help me, to help you have a school of computer science. You must jump to be directly at the same level as the other countries; and maybe, thanks to your talent, your genius and your freshness you will be ahead of them. I say that this is entirely possible!
Have no complex. Never look at a white person and say: “yes, but they are great and we, we have nothing.” No! You are the ones who are putting the poison in your heads. You are capa- ble of being better than them at all levels. I insist, at all levels. But you must believe in yourselves!
You must believe in yourself; and to believe in yourself, you must find your roots and your culture; and it’s for that reason that any African who respects him or herself has not the right to remain Christian.
What is Christianity? Oh, I do respect Christians… when they remain in their home… that is to say, in Rome — that is to say, in Europe. But here, you have been converted by force. Your ancestors have been converted by force. To be Christain when you are an African is to betray your ancestors.
Become Raëlians! I will launch a big campaign of apostasy. I wish that you apostatize from the Christian religion, because it is the religion of the colonizers, the slave merchants who have looted you and continue to do so.
If you abandon the Christian religion, you can choose to become atheist (it’s your right), or nothing (you are not obliged to become Raelian), or you may become Muslim (because this, at least, is not the religion of your colonizers) whatever you like, anything except Christian. Because to be Christian is to send an insult to your ancestors who have suffered, who have been converted by use of the stick and the gun, and whose children were taken away and sent to schools. This is what it is to be Christian! How can one be Christian and African? This has always surprised me! This is because you say to yourself that the “whites” are superior…
No, it is false! Stand up! Be proud, be great, be yourself!
There were, in your past cultures, enormous local religions, which the colonisers, in their huge disrespect of your cultures, have called animist or primitive religions. They were much more beautiful than Christianity, and they were directly linked to the ELOHIM. In your ancient gods, there are the ELOHIM, a name that was adapted to African terms. Find them again. Find your roots, while keeping in mind the pride of future sciences, which will make you not equal, but superior to your ancient colonisers.
May you all have a nice day!
