Dear Mr. Beall,
Mr. David Scott forwarded your responses* to his email to me because I’m well qualified to answer, and correct, your erroneous assumptions. I understand that certain MUFON personnel are volunteers and essentially hobbyists, as your comments to David also indicate, so I’ll keep my responses appropriate to that level of understanding.
I’m sure you can appreciate the difference between an amateur level of knowledge and experience and that of the team of professional investigators into the Billy Meier UFO case, such as Lt. Col. Wendelle Stevens and Lee and Brit Elders, whose efforts resulted in the first expert authentications of Meier’s evidence (by people like Michael Malin, NASA Mars Mission, etc.), as well as my own 35 years of research and investigation including interviewing Meier, numerous eyewitnesses, other photographers and family members, visiting the actual locations where Meier took his stunningly clear, still irreproducible UFO photos, etc., on my 14 trips to Switzerland.
In addition to having such scientific experts as Dr. David Froning publicly support the authenticity of the Meier case at one of my many presentations, a NASA aerospace engineer has now given his endorsement to the Meier case. Your remarks indicate that you’re also obviously unaware of Prof. Rhal Zahi’s two new expert analyses that authenticate Meier’s photographic evidence, regarding the WCUFO and the Pendulum UFO. Prof. Zahi also provided the protocols for duplicating the tests according to the scientific method, which you seem to be unfamiliar with, as well as a clear instructional video for doing so.
On any given day, including the day this was written, MUFON’s home page features photos of nothing more than…lights in the sky, usually taken at least thousands of feet from them. Meier’s recently authenticated WCUFO photos, from as early as 1980, were taken within…20′ of the object. And, of course, you can now authenticate one of them yourself, like any eight year-old child can.
I am unaware of any actual research by you (perhaps you’ve you published it somewhere?) and I can safely assume that you’ve never actually gone to investigate this still ongoing (over 72 years) singularly authentic UFO contact case. Hopefully, you’ll be motivated to do some actual research rather than gleefully relying on hearsay pertaining to the most important story in all of human history, which I’m sure we’d both agree a proven UFO contact case would constitute.
The fact that you’ve said, “Billy is not special nor is his case,” and “We never ignored his case, they just ignored our objective opinion on the case years ago,” simply underscores your amateurish, ill-informed and unscientific approach to the case, since you point to no such comparable case and fail to note that there never was any actual scientific investigation of the Meier case by MUFON.
I find it quite strange that the people who actually join UFO organizations are, too often, the ones who actually – and actively – don’t want to find what they say they’re looking for.
I do have to ask if you find it at all troubling that a prominent MUFON officer tells tales about running over giant lizards, while your own assistant state director tells us that she got into the UFO field because she “heard voices” in her head? Did MUFON render an “objective opinion” about their qualifications and…state of mind? Just asking. Unfortunately, such inept, unprofessional and uninformed comments by supposed “researchers” only lends credence to the claims that MUFON has not only been complicit in its suppression of the truth but that it does so deliberately in accordance with the wishes of the CIA, NSA, etc.
It’s clear that any organization that has the wherewithal to produce a major TV series on UFOs must also possess the same resources that allow even…children to authenticate the Meier case. And with at least 100,000 reports of UFOs in 45 years (all of which haven’t amounted to a Barney and Betty Hill of beans) maybe acknowledging the only still ongoing case with actual, testable evidence is timely…to say the least.
It’s to Jan Harzan’s credit that he wants to open the Meier case to the MUFON membership and others and perhaps you should take the kind of courageous approach that Jan has, as well as emulating the open-mindedness and critical thinking that Lorien Fenton also stands for. They, and others in MUFON, have taken the opportunity to actually look through the telescope. Whatever the outcome, it will be good for MUFON and those within the organization that are actually, honestly interested in the truth.
I hope that you’ll decide to join them.

The Billy Meier Contacts
*With permission from David Scott, here is the email response he received from Morgan Beall:
“My honest admission is that Jan did not dedicate our organization to solely look at the Meier case. The problem was when MUFON did take the Meier family serious many years ago they did not like our response or neutral stance of the case rather they took offence to MUFON scientific approach.
Please read this page so that you fully understand our approach and Jan’s response.
The Meier case is just that one of many interesting cases. I would say his case is limited however and mired, no pun intended, in credibility issues with the family and many that handled his case personally (not MUFON). There so man cases were witness believe they are the only one and they have a message that will save the world. So who is the real profit here? This is why MUFON takes a relative natural stance on these types of cases and claims. We, nor anyone has the means to prove or verify his claims of similar cases with these claims. I am not sure on your stance that we “Finally embraced” the subject. We have been hard at work every day for many years. All volunteers all the time. We dedicate our selves to the mission and goals. Try not to belittle us because of one case. Trust me when I say Billy is not special nor is his case. Their are many more like his and all just as difficult to take seriously but we still do because it is ethical. We never ignored his case, they just ignored our objective opinion on the case yeas ago. All Jan said was we would reexamine the evidence nothing more.”
