Raelians clone human; 2000 on waiting list

Claude Vorilhon, founder of the Raelian religion whose followers claim to have cloned a human for the first time, says its goal is to create eternal life through cloning — and make a lot of money doing it.


In an hour-long interview Sunday, Vorilhon said a company he founded in 1997 has a waiting list of about 2,000 customers willing to pay $200,000 each to have themselves or a loved one cloned. He said he won’t profit directly because he has distanced himself from Clonaid since founding it. But the French native said he won’t turn away donations from the company.
