There is sort a poetic justice to the ‘elusive’ Billy Meier case being such a fiasco among the public; all too evident with the well deserved
(strike that as -- most entertaining) dog-fighting going on here. But after independent, open-minded photo observation on my part, considering
originals prints from Switzerland as well as ‘bootleg’ sources over a period of years, these beamships seem to be the truth rather than any kind
of weak attempt at UFO photo trickery to me.
Call me an amateur or even a moron for saying these look as professional as the best FX out there for the 1970s…or any time for that matter,
speaking as an experienced and devote science-fiction movie fan of course. With Meier we see silver (appear actual precious metal rather than paint
to me) ships of detailed design (appear almost fashionable to me) instead of looking very easily made of common ordinary household items. To me, they
convincingly look like actual machines, rather than just something somebody made from scratch.
Yet of course, I don’t disagree with many here that believe these could be special effects models. But my observation skills seem to dictate that
this is a remote possibility, and not the most likely; and the odds that they are fakes must be weighed against the fact that they do look authentic.
Please model people: demonstrate how the Meier effects are poor workmanship, simple minded or obvious? They ‘all’ look pretty convincing to me;
call me crazy. Is it not the goal of good FX to fool people into believing it is real; so conversely can it be that what is real should look like
outstanding special effects?
Check out the Meier book “Through Space and Time,” and it’s not hard to come away as having seen real spacecraft or at the very least some of
the best FX art in-or-out of the movies. It seems the experts on this board here, on BOTH sides, can’t demonstrate one way or the other if these
ships are models or real spacecraft; which makes me wonder why intelligent people are totally convinced one way or other that these are totally fake
or totally real..?.?.?
In our ever-changing technological world, why is it so impossible to picture flying craft in the shape of a saucer; why can’t people imagine just
for a moment that scientifically sound, yet-to-be-proven exotic propulsion systems exist beyond the comfort zone of the internal combustion engine?
After all, what would one expect of a 23rd century Lamborghini for example? I think the Meier photographs display a likely flying machine, especially
since there are numerous worldwide photos of similar technology. To strongly suggest these are models, in my opinion, is to say that the flying disc
is impossible technology; and the only logical explanation is that these are imaginary, hence the special effects.
Granted, the testimony from Meier supporters often appears as wild-eyed devotion to a seemingly creepy character; locked-up in the close-minded
opinion that these beamships are without a doubt real Plejaren alien spaceships. As on the other hand, some know-it-alls even say seemingly
‘perfect’ pictures are fakes, without ever really knowing for sure. Yeah, I’m skeptical…. I’m skeptical of the people who really think they
know for sure….
