- LOS ANGELES - It was
only a matter of time before a breakthrough in authenticating the existence
of non-terrestrial UFOs would take place but, surely, nobody thought it
would come about this way. Despite mounting evidence over the past half-century
the arbiters and manipulators of public opinion in media, governmental
and scientific circles, along with professional skeptics and debunkers,
have marginalized serious discussion of UFOs and dismissed all evidence
as inconclusive and flawed.
- Defamatory Claims?
- A special target, at the top of the hit list for skeptics
and debunkers for more than 25 years, are the claimed contacts of a Swiss
man, Billy Meier. Meier, who claimed that his contacts with extraterrestrial
human began in 1942, when he was five years old, also says that they continue
to this day, more than 60 years later. But the skeptics, in labeling Meier
and his evidence as fraudulent, claim that he hoaxed his 35mm photos and
8mm film segments of the UFOs during the mid-1970s using models or some
unidentified form of special effects wizardry to accomplish the alleged
deception. Professional skeptics, such as the international organization
CFI, magician/skeptic The "Amazing" Randi and science writer/skeptic
Michael Shermer, have long been in the forefront of those accusing Meier
of hoaxing his physical evidence, which also includes video and sound recordings,
as well as metal alloy samples.
- Meier's supporters state that these claims run counter
to the results of scientific examination of Meier's evidence by experts
from JPL, IBM, USGS and Nippon TV, as well as special effects expert Wally
Gentleman, known for his work on Stanley Kubrick's "2001", among
many films. They also claim that all of Meier's physical evidence remains
irreproducible even with today's technology.
- The Challenge
- In order to definitively resolve the matter, in early
February 2001, a number of Meier's more than 1200 photos and eight film
segments were presented for examination to case investigator Vaughn Rees
of CFI West, the Los Angeles branch of CFI. Mr. Rees concluded that, in
his expert opinion, they were all "easily duplicated hoaxes"
and that the two lights seen flashing alternately from two different parts
of the UFO in the film (Hasenbol, March 18, 1976 at: www.figu.org/us/ufology/videos.htm)
were accomplished simply by Meier's scratching the film with a pin.
- Mr. Rees agreed to back up his claims by duplicating
one of Meier's UFO photos along with the film segment, which should be
the easiest to duplicate because it was the only one of Meier's that had
no other objects in it to compare to the UFO. Mr. Rees stated that he already
had a 35mm photo camera and knew where to acquire an 8mm movie camera.
His work wasn't required to be exact to the last detail, just convincingly
comparable in quality to Meier's.
- Over the next two months Mr. Rees failed to submit anything
to back up his claims and, in May of 2001, it was suggested that he could
try using any high-tech equipment available to him, i.e. computers, special
effects, Photo Shop, etc., to fulfill his commitment. It was also suggested
that, if he wished to be sporting about it, he should use only one hand
since Meier is a one-armed man.
- The Results
- Two years later, at a UFO conference in February of 2003,
Mr. Rees was confronted about his failure to meet the challenge. He responded
that he still didn't have access to a photo-processing lab, which Meier
himself never had access to, having sent all of his films off to a local
shop for developing. Mr. Rees was reminded that he could, and perhaps had
already tried to, use any high-tech means at his disposal instead. In a
comparable two-year period Mr. Meier had, with one hand, produced hundreds
of photos, while the able-bodied, technology-savvy Mr. Rees had produced
- Now, about three-years have passed and Mr. Rees has still
failed to provide even one photo or film to back up his claims. In a three-year
period of time Meier had taken nearly 1,000 photographs and, in about one
year's time, he took at least one-half dozen of his 8mm films, and he did
all of this using only one hand! A comparable number and quality of such
types of films for an individual special effects person during the mid-1970s
(and maybe any other time period) would be quite respectable, though an
Internet search will reveal that no such cinematic accomplishments, professional
or otherwise, exist.
- This may be the first, and most important, time in history
that skeptics have set out to disprove a presumed hoax and ended up proving
its authenticity. And, in this case, what they proved is undoubtedly the
factuality of the most important event in human history, the existence
of, and contact with, extraterrestrials.
- What Integrity Demands
- The professional skeptics of the Meier case have concocted
all sorts of fanciful notions and theories as to how he hoaxed the evidence.
But when challenged to prove their claims they repeatedly replied that
it was not their job to attempt to duplicate the evidence, although conducting
themselves according to the scientific method would require it. Their time
for freely, and irresponsibly, attacking Meier ran out when Mr. Rees and
CFI West utterly and completely failed to meet the challenge they had finally
accepted. In so doing, they effectively proved Meier's UFOs real and their
own claims unsubstantiated and defamatory.
- Unequivocal public retractions and apologies are now
due Meier from CFI West, Vaughn Rees, Randi, Michael Shermer, etc. They
have indulged in character assassination, slander and libel, and the sloppiest,
least scientific thinking imaginable. It is now absolutely incumbent upon
any and all of the skeptics who have offered money for proof of "paranormal"
phenomenon, to offer it to Meier and his non-profit organization in Switzerland,
FIGU. Specifically, the offer by Randi of $1,000,000 for proof of a paranormal
ability has been more than satisfied and must be paid.
- Integrity demands that they now live up to their word.
There can be absolutely no argument, dispute or doubt now, especially considering
the abysmal, failed attempts by the skeptical accusers themselves, with
any tools at their disposal, to debunk, let alone duplicate, Meier's stunning
proof. Now it's time to recognize that the most important event in human
history has occurred and to discover what meaning it holds for us.
- While the skeptics have offered an unexpected contribution
to authenticating what have come to be known as the Meier Contacts, it's
really only the tip of a very deep and solid iceberg of irrefutable proof
far beyond a reasonable doubt.
- Noted Astronomer Corroborates Additional Evidence
- In April of 2003, Dr. Joseph Veverka, Chairman of the
Astronomy Department at Cornell University, was presented with documentation
of specific information on Jupiter, its rings and its moons, published
by Meier in October, 1978, five months before the Voyager probe photographed
and relayed the information back to Earth. When shown the evidence that
Meier described the moon Io as being the most volcanically active body
in the solar system, prior to the first official knowledge of it in March
of 1979, Dr. Veverka was direct and candid, "If he said that 3-5 months
before, then all that I can say is that he's right."
- Meier also documented the fact that Jupiter had rings;
described the chemical composition of the planet's surface, the coloration
of it's moons, Io's smooth surface and Europa being encrusted in ice. But
far more amazingly, Meier accurately described both the composition and
the source of Jupiter's rings 20 years before scientists from Cornell announced
their findings, in 1998!
- Prophetically Accurate Information
- In February of 1995, Meier published a lengthy document
of enormous complexity in which he foretold the likelihood of certain specific
future events. In September 2001, portions of that information were included
in the book "And Yet They Fly!" written by Guido Moosbrugger,
an Austrian former schoolteacher and principle acquainted with Meier for
about 25 years.
- The following seven items, foretold on pages 347 and
348 of "And Yet They Fly!" have recently occurred and virtually
in the sequence Meier foretold:
- 1. The strike or attack by the US and its president (Iraq).
Meier even used the word "stun" when he said the strike would
"...stun the entire world..." "Stun" is a synonym for
the term "shock" used by the US as in "shock and awe".
- 2. Meier correctly predicted the following upsurge in
unrest and violence from Islamic fundamentalists.
- 3. Meier foretold the spread of AIDS, which has indeed
become very widespread.
- 4. Mad Cow Disease has since spread to other animals
and humans as Meier also predicted.
- 5. Meier said that a new disease and epidemic would then
appear and SARS did just that.
- 6. His warning regarding a renewed threat of chemical
warfare is more in the news than ever.
- 7. Meier specifically warned of the possibility of an
accident, one that he said could be avoided, however, at the nuclear power
plant near Lyon, France. The emergency scenario, and the timely shut down
of that exact plant, occurred on August 12, 2003.
- Now, in case the astronomically high odds against any
kind of coincidences or lucky guesses aren't apparent, consider that Meier
identified the following eight years in advance:
- 1. The exact country and leader (out of hundreds) that
would launch a stunning attack and a synonym for the term actually used
by that country's leader (impossible to calculate).
- 2. The exact religious group (out of thousands) that
would respond with their own attacks.
- 3. The exact disease (out of thousands) that would spread
widely among humans.
- 4. The exact animal disease (out of thousands) that would
spread to other animals and humans.
- 5. The sudden appearance of a new disease and epidemic.
- 6. The exact kind of weapons and warfare that would cause
- 7. The exact location (out of 436) and type of facility
(out of several) that would have a near-accident.
- If this doesn't qualify as a genuine demonstration of
psychic or paranormal abilities nothing does.
- And it far exceeds any reasonable requirements to garner
the financial award promised for such a demonstration, though that never
has been the purpose of Meier's mission. It is only fitting, however, that
those who have long accused him of being a hoaxer out for non-existent,
and unproven, financial gain, should now have the opportunity to reward
him, not only for his abilities, but also for suffering the fools and their
defamation for so long.
- For those who may be unaware, in addition to character
assassination, Meier has survived 19 (documented) actual assassination
- The Sound Recordings
- Finally, the skeptics (and others who've actually tried)
have also been unable to reproduce the sound recordings Meier made of a
UFO, using only a cassette tape recorder, in an open field in front of
15 witnesses. There are 32 simultaneous frequencies occurring, 24 in the
audible and eight in the inaudible range. To date, they remain irreproducible
even with state-of-the-art synthesizers, let alone with cassette machines

the sounds at: and experiment with them yourself. You will also find more
documentation on the Meier Contacts at this website.
- The Most Important Event In Human History
- Now that the authenticity of the Meier Contacts have
been firmly established, we can begin to examine the information, and the
real purpose, behind the most important event in human history.
- Hint: It has to do with our future survival.

The Meier Contacts and has researched the case for 25 years. He can be

- Why I Don't Believe Billy Meier
- From C.J. Davis
- I have always been suspicious of Meier, more for the
teachings in his book, Messages from the Pleiades, than for his fundamental
claims of contact. The following statements--which come from www.andyettheyfly.com,
the Billy Meier Q&A--pretty much seal it for me:
- "I am the only human being on Earth who is able
to maintain physical and telepathic contact with Pleiadians and other life
forms of the same evolutionary level. Nobody on Earth is able to do this,
not even those people whose spirit forms did not originate on Earth."
- Further, we learn, "Religion, in the current Earth-human
sense of comprehension, is foreign to the Pleiadians. A creator-god, or
whatever the various cult-religions call him, is a horror to the Pleidians,
and they consider the concept unrealistic." Yet they speak of the
"Commandments of Creation and the Evolution", and refer to the
"Creative laws and commandments", which, they say, "can
in no way be equated with God"(?). Then, "Religion as the Earth
human knows and pursues it, in the form of the adoration of a god, adoration
of saints, and as faith in a God, is a horror to the Pleiadians. They consider
this form of religion a blind faith, based on cult activities, false teachings,
lies, and other falsehoods [falsehoods other than false teachings and lies(?)]".
- Later he says, "Any claims related to alleged contacts
with Pleiadians/Plejarans by anyone else other than me are pure lies and
fraud, because in fact, no other person on Earth except me, is capable
of maintaining contacts with them... Anyone claiming otherwise is ensnared
in a lie, hoax, or fraud..."
- And then, "Furthermore, no such thing as personal
contacts between terrestrials and extraterrestrials other than the Pleiadians/Plejarans
ever existed." (!) But see the following qualification:
- "Not to be disregarded though are certain examination
contacts in which some extraterrestrials abduct terrestrials to be studied...
But their undertaking have nothing to do with the nonsense implying that
extraterrestrials are impregnating terrestrial women or having sex with
them... Often claimed in the same breath is the ridiculous statement that
extraterrestrials are massacring farm animals, etc."
- I can see why many ufologists would find this material
