Real scientific experts undo the decades of damage, defamation and disinformation from the skeptics
The difference between self-dismantled skeptic, Michael Shermer*, and real scientific experts is that they possess the requisite technical expertise that neither Shermer nor any of the skeptics do.
Thanks to another military investigator, we were directed to an old video interview, from 1995, with astronaut Gordon Cooper, who was a pilot on the Mercury-Atlas 9 and Gemini 5 missions. Cooper was no stranger to photography and said the investigators brought him Billy Meier’s UFO photos (see 58:20):
“I saw the pictures the day after the investigative team went to Switzerland. I know the investigative team very well. They came to my home to show me all their pictures. Very fine, very fine, they were absolutely authentic. And yet the whole world is trying their best to make them out to be fake.”
That “whole world” of course includes the cultic phonies in The Church of Skeptology, like Shermer, who glibly dismissed Meier’s independently authenticated UFO photos as “models a child could make”, without having ever actually analyzed even one of Meier’s 1,200+ UFO photos.
Gordon Cooper stating that Meier’s photos were “very fine” and “absolutely authentic”, carries far more weight than when a skeptic – with no experience in photo analysis – makes snide comments in order to bolster his ego…and suppress the truth that threatens his own unscientific beliefs and prejudices.

Cooper wasn’t the only aerospace professional to support the authenticity of Meier’s UFO photos. See also remarks by Michael Malin, David Froning, Robert Post and other scientific experts here, as well as by NASA aerospace engineer Matthew Wieczkiewicz, USAF OSI/Department of State investigator supervisor Joe Tysk and the original photo analysis.
*The blog in which Shermer exposed his ineptitude, biases, evasive tactics, non-responsiveness to direct questions, unsubstantiated disparaging remarks towards Meier, as well as against Francisco Villate and Chris Lock, was sent to national and international skeptics and skeptical organizations. To date, not a one of them responded, neither to defend Shermer, nor to respond to, contradict, or criticize the information submitted to Shermer for his comments, etc.
Cowardice and outright dishonesty have been emblematic of the skeptics since I first began challenging them, in 2001. Additionally, skeptic Derek Bartholomaus went even further, going so far as to plagiarize – steal – the theyfly online brand in a blatant and unashamed effort to mislead people.
Thanks to Tao Istok for the film clip of Gordon Cooper.
