Broke commandment against bearing false witness in order to sell books about “aliens”
Gary Bates a leader of an anti-scientific Christian cult, has been caught in defamatory, libelous lies in order to sell a book he wrote about so-called “aliens”.
Bates claimed that he had documentation from a “media crew” showing that Billy Meier – who he also erroneously referred to as a “guru” – “was caught out hoaxing in an undercover sting operation”. Apparently Bates thought that he could milk more money from his gullible cult members by concocting false claims about the man at the center of the only scientifically proven UFO contact case, still ongoing for over 74 years in Switzerland.
Ironically, Bates’ anti-scientific mumbo-jumbo* stands in stark contrast to Meier’s impeccable record of specific, prophetically accurate scientific information and independently authenticated UFO evidence. Yet, despite five requests for Bates to substantiate or remove his libelous attacks, the only response from his office was a suggestion that I should…buy the book.
Bates, whose religious beliefs put great emphasis on the so-called “inerrant word of God”, apparently thought that bearing false witness against an innocent person – something that is “associated with being allied with the wicked” – wasn’t really so bad after all, especially if it helped with his pursuit of mammon. It’s particularly odious for a so-called religious leader to defiantly and unrepentantly bear false witness against another human being…and then to be too cowardly to retract, apologize and remove the defamatory charges and claims.
Such hypocrisy also begs the question if Bates really “believes” all of the stuff he preaches; doesn’t his “God” see and hold people accountable for their sins, even when they try to conceal them from others?
As often pointed out, every religion rests on the patently inadmissible, childish and illogical premise that, “What’s in this book is true…because this book says it’s true.” And Gary Bates is not the first hypocrite to mock his own purported beliefs, to bear false witness and to commit transgressions against the real truth by publishing outright lies for profit…in yet another book of falsehoods.
*Regarding Bates’ clearly comical version of “science”, he resorted to using the word “probably” 19 times in order to try to make some sense out of the muddled biblical fable version of Noah and the ark. It wouldn’t be surprising if somewhere in the whole unscientific mess Bates suggests that Noah “probably” gave the entire menagerie Dramamine in order to cope with a year’s worth of seasickness, among the multitude of other problems left unaddressed by the “inerrant word of God”.
