The New Contactees
Bryan Sentes (a friend) and Susan Palmer have co-authored a paper about the significance of the Raelian "theology" as a replacement for the traditional (religious) belief system.
The paper discusses the flying saucer connection, Carl Jung's UFO thesis, and related matters.
Nick Redfern made little or no note about the Raelians in his book, Contactees, but the sect or cult is everything (and more) that the contactee phenomenon represents.
