Over this past weekend I managed to take the time to stir up some hornets’ nests, three of them to be precise. I sent a message to a number of skeptics, scientists and so-called “UFO researchers”

The purpose of the message was to inform them that, considering the abundant, easily verifiable evidence, new authentication of same and the endorsement of a NASA aerospace engineer (linked from here), I was adding their names to the list of those who endorsed the authenticity of the Billy Meier UFO case, unless I was informed to the contrary. As you may imagine, I received a number of very quick responses to not be included, from each of the groups.

I then informed them that it was required that they provide a credible, substantiated rebuttal to the evidence, or I was keeping them on the list. Today I’m going to explore the responses from one person, Dr. Steven Novella, a professional skeptic and long time critic and detractor of the case. As I indicated in my email to Dr. Novella this morning that I would post this public response, I also want to reaffirm what I said to him and the 13 other people on that particular list:

“Because you’ve taken the time to respond and to raise these additional points I thank you, no sarcasm intended whatsoever.

I am going to address these points, and the ones that I think you avoided in my earlier responses, hopefully today in a public post on my forum. I think it’s important to clarify this situation once and for all.

I have long stated that either the Billy Meier UFO case is the biggest, most impenetrable hoax spanning over 72 years, or it’s the most important true story in all of science…and human history.

The people on this list – and on two separate lists to which I’ve written – are all effectively opponents of the case. None have ever made a credible case against the evidence.

I think that getting a definitive conclusion is not only possible but necessary for the sake of the truth. If I “believe” anything, it would have to be that any and all scientifically minded people want to know the truth, whether they like it or are comfortable with it or not. I count myself among those people and I hope that all of you do too.”

I am going to address all the skeptics, referring to Dr. Novella’s specific points and criticisms from the emails he sent me, quoting only his essential points. So let’s start with his first criticism:

1. The “Pendulum UFO”: Dr. Novella states, “You claimed that the saucer on a string video (which a 5 year old can tell is a fake) indicates that the string support would have to be in frame. I conclusively demonstrated to you that the support would be above the frame, therefore not in the shot, and therefore compatible with a model dangling from a string.”

This is as good a point as any to begin to understand the problem with the skeptical “arguments” to the Meier case as a whole. The fact is that the skeptics have, from the very beginning, assumed that the case was a hoax and proceeded from that assumption. They are now again reminded to read the technical analysis on the 8mm “Pendulum UFO” film, by Prof. Rhal Zahi. Prof. Zahi also posted a video pertaining to the analysis here. Since Dr. Novella likes to admonish me for not being “scientific”, I’m sure that he and the other critics of the case will enjoy being spoken to by someone who understands and speaks their language, and who explains just what he did and how he did it so that others may conduct the same kinds of analysis.

I think that the comparison between the kind of “science” that Dr. Novella employed and that which Prof. Zahi uses is quite clear and, hopefully, Dr. Novella will upgrade his methodologies appropriately.

2. The WCUFO: Of course none of the skeptics bothered to do as I suggested, i.e. examine the information about the WCUFO photos, analysis, etc. The article I sent included these links:

                   The WCUFO and where It Can Take Us

                   Can You…SEE what You’re Looking At? (Part 2)

…which led to this video and to the information here. Again, Prof. Zahi presented not only enormously detailed      analysis but specified and demonstrated what tools he used in the process, etc. Perhaps you’re now getting just a glimmer of why I noticed also that not a one of you mentioned that you took the online image of Meier’s 35mm film nighttime photo of the WCUFO and run it through PhotoShop. Of course not, you already “know” the whole thing’s a hoax, right Dr. Novella?

3. The Asket and Nera Photographs: This is a favorite of many critics of the case and, in some ways, deservedly so. But not for the reasons Dr. Novella believes. There’s a very good article that explains the matter, with important points such as the verifiable documentation that Meier was told about the doubles in Contact #39 in 1975, from1975, year before the photo issue was raised (many of us have the copyrighted, dated, published book). I can provide scans of the pages for those who are interested. Further, the faces in the photos are…different, as anyone can plainly see. Then there are facts such as that the photos weren’t taken off a TV screen or monitor and that there were two witnesses who saw Asket, one of whom is a now retired UN ambassador, who served her country, Cambodia, for 12 years there. Her honesty was also attested to in independent analysis by a consultant to the Special Forces, an expert in reading – and teaching – body language to people who use that skill in life and death situations. Lastly, the article on Asket and Nera was posted in…2010. But Dr. Novella and his fellow skeptics didn’t need to look at any of this evidence because they already “knew” it was all a hoax, right?

4. The Hasenböl film footage: With two lights flashing in broad daylight, this film, from 1976, was alsolinked to in the email I sent the skeptics, scientists and “UFO researchers”. It’s pretty simple, even for skeptics and real scientists, to examine and analyze. Of course it’s also rather threatening, so much so in fact that when I submitted a link to it on one of Stuart Robbins’ blogs (in which he posited that videos of UFOs are really just capturing footage of quadcopters) he banned it, censored it, wouldn’t allow it to be posted! Now of course all of you can examine it and comment. Please, just for the sake of your own credibility, avoid the embarrassingly inept and amateurish type of comment offered by Dr. Novella in regards to the “Pendulum UFO”, i.e. “…saucer on a string video (which a 5 year old can tell is a fake)”. I also included a link to the (already authenticated) “Sunlight UFO” photo, where you’ll also find a video of Meier and the Nippon TV director as they walk right up to the tree where Meier took that photo.

5. The “Cross in the Sky” and other 1964 UFO photos: I also linked to one of Meier’s most astounding photos, the cross in the sky, from 1964. Taken with a 1940s Kodak bellows type camera, just like his UFO photos from the same time, this photo is absolutely, positively no hoax, nor a product of – completely non-existent – special effects, etc.


A few words of advice to the skeptics, scientists and, pardon me “UFO experts (none of whom are) you all now have the opportunity to examine, analyze and attempt to rebut the work done by Prof. Zahi. You have the same opportunity to try to “debunk” the “Pendulum UFO”, the WCUFO, the Asket and Nera information, the Hasenböl film, the “Sunlight UFO” photo, the “Cross in the Sky”, etc. I suggest that you don’t make a mockery of Dr. Novella’s repeated, deserved, emphasis on science, etc.

Here you are with the opportunity to try to credibly, with substantiation, explain away how this (yes, one-armed) one man produced all of this still irreproducible physical evidence (along with the sound recordings and metal samples) while living in a remote part of Switzerland, in pre-computer, pre-internet days, with no financial or technical resources, accomplices, etc., even while under the watchful eye of a retired US Air Force investigator and two professional private investigators (who were also initially skeptics themselves). And of course it will be delightful to hear your explanations of just how Meier foresaw, anticipated and configured for use in PhotoShop, a 35 mm film photo that would only reveal its full contents…over 32 years later. We all can’t wait for that to be explained away. And please don’t resort to “magical “ explanations that are simply…unscientific.

If you suddenly are “too busy”, “won’t waste your time”, or proffer any other evasive ploys and excuses, just remember that you were given not only the chance to confront the evidence (and your previous certainties about it) but also that there’s evidence that’s now so easy for anyone to authenticate themselves…and there’s more of that coming. It will become evermore difficult to play the expert “card” in the midst of this rapidly increasing democratization of information and technology.

For those scientists to whom I also sent my emails, such Profs. Paul Davies, Bernard, Haisch and Lawrence Krauss, etc., this of course goes for you as well. You are the ones who looked down your noses at the case and who’ve also had the gall to consider yourselves qualified to talk about the topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials, to publish books, give commentaries, etc.

As for the “UFO experts”, I can’t think of any group that is so unscientific, lacking in scientific standards, logic, credibility, research skills, objectivity, etc., etc. It is this group that has done even more damage to the truth than I think that either the skeptics or “all-knowing” scientists have. They have effectively acted as pawns of disinformation, so much so as to marginalize the entire topic.

For many years now, all of the skeptics (and most of the “UFO experts”) have, without so much as a doubt or consideration, slandered and defamed Billy Meier, calling him a fraud, faker, hoaxer, etc. Because they have dug themselves so deeply into their wretchedly pseudoscientific hole, it will take great personal courage, self-honesty and personal integrity for them to admit that they were…wrong. In other words, it will require real and true character for any and all of these parties to accept, acknowledge and express such realizations. I hold out hope that such qualities and the expression of them are well within the reach, are even already present in those who are answered and addressed today.

P.S. In case I didn’t make it clear to the skeptics…no excuses. You asked for it, now you’ve got it, do your work. Lastly, I’ve made it clear that I consider Meier’s prophetically accurate, scientific information to be the even “higher standard of proof”, meaning that it meets not only scientific but legal standards of proof and exceeds therefore even the impeccably solid and authentic physical evidence. I didn’t discuss it here because, right now, it’s far too outside the realm of what skeptics can or will consider and deal with, although they – and everyone else on the planet –will indeed have to deal with the consequences of the unheeded warnings for a very long time to come.

  • Outstanding Michael but, of course, don’t hold your breath. I refer you to other, email, messages I have sent you on the five stages humanity is cureently in starting with “denial.” Regardless, again, to be clear, OUSTANDING WORK!

    • Thanks Mike. THere’s enough there that any sincere researcher, skeptic, etc., can find the truth…if they want to.

      • Agreed, wholeheartedly Michael, but it takes courage to overcome all the other points you have extensively covered already, like killing the cash cow of the UFO’s promotions for profit and, I suspect, this also applies to “skeptical” scientic researchers too. However, this is NOT to dismay. Sooner or later the “truth” will simply overwhelm and be totally undeniable. I dearly hope I live to see that day. KEEP UP THE SUPERB WORK! I for one am very happy to have finally arrived at the truth, which is overwhelming contained within the massive documentation, CR’s and more of the Meier case.

  • Yesterday I reviewed some the early documentation of the Meier contacts, the Stevens/Elders investigation and subsequent reporting of their findings. Some serious-minded people went to great lengths to “get it right.” I think that at some point they must have realized they were dealing with something truly extraordinary.
    Very early on it became apparent that each area of their investigation revealed a new nugget of truth, that indeed the physical evidence not only stands up to rigorous scrutiny but reveals within itself yet another layer of truth … for instance the wcufo photo revealing a road and fencepost 32 years after the fact, or the sound recordings that resonate in harmony with the Earth’s own harmonic frequencies, or the reflections revealed by modern examination of the wcufo photos … I mean the list goes on and on. This information was meant to be discovered.
    I can only come to one conclusion about the skeptics, that they are seriously green with envy that they haven’t and probably never will uncover anything as fascinating as the Billy Meier material. Until they open their hearts and minds and take one more serious look at the “case.”

  • When I publicly challenged Dr. Steven Novella about his article reproduced below – which found on his website, which provides “THE [singular!] Skeptical Viewpoint” about BEAM – it ignited an ultimately very revealing argument* which Doctor Novella simply abandoned in a very unprofessional manner. Please note his listed sources of (dis)information.

    Billy Meier and the Ships of the Pleiades


    Billy Meier is a farmer in Switzerland who claims to have been in on-going contact with aliens from the star cluster known as the Pleiades. He has taken over 1000 photographs of the aliens, their spacecraft, and locations where they have taken him, including the future. Meier also claims to have video of their ships and rock and metal samples given to him by the aliens. Also as evidence he has shown the landing tracks that the alien spacecraft have left behind. Billy Meier’s case represents the largest body of evidence to document the longest reported contact between humans and aliens.

    The Skeptical Viewpoint

    Billy Meier’s story has prompted a great deal of research into his claims, both by skeptics and those within the UFO community who expected to confirm his reports. What was discovered is that the Billy Meier story actually represents the biggest UFO hoax in history. Upon close examination it was discovered that not one of his alleged photographs were original prints, but all had been airbrushed or otherwise altered. Models of some of the spacecraft seen in his photo’s were found in his house. In one video of an alleged flying saucer, the spacecraft can clearly be seen to be swinging pendulum style as if it were suspended by a wire. The photograph of an alleged Pleiadian alien was discovered to be a photocopy of a model taken from a Sears Catalog. Under close scrutiny, all of Billy Meier’s alleged evidence has been shown to be false.

    Yet, Billy Meier’s claims survived for many years within the UFO community, being touted as the best evidence for the reality of alien visitation. There are still those who will not admit the entire case is a complete fraud. Meanwhile, Meier has made a great deal of money from the sale of his book and other material in which he discusses his hoaxed contact with aliens.

    • I would like to ask him actually how much money Meier received from selling books because his claims of “a great deal” makes it seem like Meier is quite wealthy. Again, accusation with no evidence to back it up.

      • “If somebody wanted to counterfeit only one of the seven films (short films), it perhaps would have been possible with $50,000 and in a studio where the equipment exists. The equipment would have cost another half a million.” Open Letter by Gary Kinder taken from And Still They Fly by Guido Moosbrugger.
        Shouldn’t the skeptics be looking at where Billy “supposedly” got the $550,000 because if he “supposedly” received that much to finance his films there would definitely be a paper trail.

    • Dyson long time no talk I hope you’ve been well old fella
      That exchange of yours with Novella had been a source of very profound education for me and I think I still have a printout of it somewhere.
      Anymore exchanges with these types or are you buried in translations?

  • They don’t want to lose their cash cow … They would be considered outsiders in the UFO community and no more speaking engagements or book deals … They simply don’t want the truth , they are not ready … After 72 years of contact you would think they would realize , nobody on earth has that much evidence for that long and still ongoing , they should have looked into the case after Wendell did so much work to check it out, after all he was a military guy … Salome …

  • I guarantee someone will take this on. Many things are coming as this age is the age of change. No longer will clerics and politicians alike be allowed to hide the truth any longer. They’ve known this for decades.

  • Well said Michael. Now lets see if they will continue to run, hide and “throw stones” at the evidence presented again to them. How these people are respected in their field of “Expertise” is shocking because they run from things they can’t explain or just refuse to confront them in the first place. Or just “throw stones” in the forms of illogical, opinionated, unscientific arguments as you clearly just exposed.

    The link to “Top Skeptic RETRACTS Hoax Claims – Helps Prove Meier Case Real!” goes to a “Page not found” site.

    • Thanks, I’ll get that fixed. Oh yeah, the skeptics have about a week before I start reporting their…capitulation.

    • Most people refuse to confront anyone because somehow they feel they will be looked down upon if they dare question so called authority. After the High River gun grab last year when over 700 firearms and even larger amounts of ammo were seized (and 1,900 doors were kicked in) by the RCMP our Prime Minister (who is not allowed to interfere with the police) demanded they give back the guns. They listened and gave them back even though they didn’t have to. That fact was never mentioned by liberal biased media because it would not be in their interest to portray the PM as being a defender of the people.

  • Lawrence Krauss Wrote “The Physics of Star Trek”. Why is he so denying the Billy Meier photos if Krauss is so into Star Trek? Were is Dr. Krauss`s logic in the truth of the Meier photos and the physics of flying saucers?

  • Good way to put it. If they can’t put forth evidence against where mountains of evidence abound, then they are by definition publicly “for the case”.

    It seems like Krauss has put himself in a bad position (maybe not in our current terrestrial views but certainly universally) by selling his soul (so to speak) to the stultifying and quite limited views of today’s mainstream science. If only he applied that mainstream science and maths to this case (which is what it’s designed for), then he might actually get somewhere instead of simply assuming and dismissing it as a hoax as a pathetic defense against a small minded group of people he’s surrounded himself with. They all whore themselves out in one way or another whether it’s for position, stature, name, money or whatever else in the eyes of their colleagues or the world. Ego ego ego. If there’s anything a truly scientific mind cannot stand, it’s ego getting in the way of objectivity for the sake of flattery by uninformed and closed minded colleagues. At least Newton, Einstein and others had the balls to buck the tide of their age.

    He has certainly gathered some stature in the eyes of his atheist friends too, many of whom would be greatly disappointed fans of his (temporarily) if he publicly agreed with the meier case. He needs to stop caring about stature. Start caring about truth. Sure he’s dodged some bullets and it takes courage to stand up to religion but why go just half way? Might as well be honest all the way up the line where these subjects are concerned especially. Grow a back bone Krauss!! I for one might no longer be a fan of yours of you don’t.

    • Which is fine… We’re all human and shouldn’t be so prone to being fans or of putting anybody up on a pedestal. The fact that he feels the need to have fans speaks volumes.

    • The article does say:

      “Features like side-mounted camera in lieu of mirrors, which Tesla has shown on several Model X mockups to date, are unlikely to make it to production, however. While more aerodynamic, they’re currently not legal in the U.S.”

      But the model X will be coming out in 2015. So, it won’t be long before the no side-view mirrors feature will legal.
