No, this is not a satire.
It's the Raelian summer seminars.
Especially noteworthy are the new date for the arrival of the Elohim (around 2025 - not long!), the prophet Rael's impressive singing skills, the Raelian funk band and Glen Carrter introducing his new song Elohim. "What an amazing performance he gave us..."
Fans of nihilistic sex will also be pleased to note that Michel Houellebecq makes an appearance.
For those that don't know, Raelism was started in the 1970s by former motoring journalist Claude Vorilhon after a series of enlightening alien encounters during which he shared an 'unforgettable' bath with several robot women. They now believe that humanity was created 25,000 years ago, cloned by alien scientists called the Elohim and we need to set up an embassy for the Elohim so they can come back to Earth. Meanwhile, they say, let’s have some sexy massages. They're famous for claiming to have cloned a human child and attempting to make Eminem an honorary priest. There's plenty more about them in the Joy Of Sects.
