It's weird…

For some reason, the Raelian April Fools article keeps generating mail. I don't know how or why, given that it says pretty damn clearly that it's a parody, and even explains it… But this is an odd one — are we fooling people inside his organization, or are they trying to fool us?

Hi Thomas,

It was good seeing you in Las Vegas at the Bellagio at 3:00 March 26, even though it was a brief encounter!

Things are going well on this new island home...been keeping in touch with Florence in Honolulu.

I read the interview on yesterday and have been giving the idea alot of thought since. I would be interested in participating because I would love to be a parent.

This is my temporary email until I get online to retrieve my email from

My new tel # is 808-345-0730

Anyway, I don't know if that's a legit email or not. I can't imagine it is, but, really, if someone is sold on Rael, they're probably pretty dumb, so you never know. If anyone gets curious and calls them, let me know… But I suspect it's a prankback.

Update: Well, someone named DONNA really does have an answering machine at that number…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
