Question: Is noted skeptical radio program dodging the Billy Meier UFO case?
I have no shortage of opportunities to be preaching to the choir about the Billy Meier UFO contacts. But I’m always on the lookout for mainstream media shows that will want to explore, and challenge, the case in a more hardball fashion.
I’ve recently sent a couple of emails to Point of Inquiry, the radio show affiliated with Center for Inquiry, the skeptical organization whose Los Angeles investigative branch has run into a fair bit of trouble in attempting to debunk the Meier case and it’s evidence.
I invited Point of Inquiry to interview me (take me on, so to speak) regarding the Meier case, since they are all about skepticism and showing how foolish anything is that seems to lie in the realm of the (nonexistent) “paranormal”, i.e. UFOs, etc. Now I’m sure that they are busy with various things but I’m beginning to get the feeling that they prefer to preach to the choir more than they want to take someone on who’s trying to do the opposite.
Since they’ve interviewed other intelligent, educated, well-spoken guests, most all of whom seem to be advocates for their own positions, surely, in the interest of truth they’d want to engage with someone equally well qualified with an opposing viewpoint, no? After all, I’ve made it easy for them now to not offer the disproved mainstay of previous skeptical attacks on Meier’s UFO evidence. So they would have the opportunity to offer their own substantiated criticisms to support their skepticism.
As I have pointed out, it’s been more than 10 years since CFI West accepted my challenge to them, a challenge which was also posed to other skeptics who had – for far too long – been sniping away at Meier with unrestrained cynicism and nastiness. It would seem that now only the most religiously hardcore skeptics would blindly adhere to the same unfounded beliefs.
But if the good people at Point of Inquiry are sincere truth seekers, our proposed interaction could serve to inform and increase awareness of an authentic and valuable contribution to human knowledge and understanding, which would be something that both sides could warmly welcome, without the need for gloating by, or embarrassment to, either.
