I noticed this new thread on the Billy Meier ray gun pictures, complete with mis-dated photos (1988).
First, yes, I completely do stand behind those photos. I direct your members to read:
This will give some answers to the reasonable questions about the gun and the gold foil outfit. And for those who really like to think and reason,
look at the 1977 picture of Meier with the gun (there's also a video of him with it) and get a sense of the relatively stark environment that existed
on the property at the time. Does anyone think that the gold foil suit, with the silver-looking bracelet, was an affordable priority had it even been
available to Meier? In this same line of thinking, consider that when the investigators went to a metallurgist to see if he could make the famous
Wedding Cake UFO) they were told that he indeed could...but that it would cost $25,000 (in 1980), a sum that Meier clearly didn't have available to
him (he was receiving a disability pension as his main source of income). Of course any presumed model has never surfaced in more than 25 years.
Your readers should also keep in mind that the original eight-year investigation by the team, plus the subsequent investigation by Gary Kinder (author
of Light Years), as well as the ensuing 20 years of research and investigation have still not revealed any conspirators, collaborators, technological
or financial assistance, nor anyone with any of the requisite abilities to have hoaxed the mountains of still irreproducible evidence. The combined
research has yielded over 1,300 pages of published information, all of which also remains remarkably non self-contradictory.
Some other points. If you're going to criticize the case, which is of course fair game, at least do sufficient research to get some basic facts
straight. The alleged Plejaren (human) extraterrestrials indeed do have five fingers on each hand. Your mistake is confusing them with the far more
recently appearing seven-fingered hand prints, by alleged members on another race, as explained here:
By the way, I did some research on the phase that the moon was in during this time and it was quite dark. The significance is this, there was
insufficient light to hoax such evidence (if indeed it is even hoaxable) and several other factors make hoaxing extremely unlikely. These include the
presence of the night watch (long ago deemed necessary because of the nearly two-dozen attempts on Meier's life and armed kidnapping attempt against
his daughter), the graveled road (makes approaching cars and foot traffic immediately audible, especially in the stillness of night) and the
two...peacocks, which are excellent alarm systems.
These hand prints, papillary lines and all, are still visible in the original vehicle's paint finish and, as perhaps another joke, some recently
appeared on one of the other cars at the center. Despite Meier's willingness to have the prints scientifically examined, there have been no qualified
takers to his offer, only the derision of armchair experts a considerable distance from the action.
And comments about all the money Meier has presumably made are simply laughable for anyone who knows the situation in Switzerland and who has actually
seen the books of the non-profit organization that is FIGU, as I have for the past six years.
For further consideration regarding the claims of duplicating/debunking Meier's UFO photos, films and video please see
where you can learn about the failed efforts of Jeff Ritzmann, photographer, model maker and miniature tree
cultivator, who was unable to produce even one photos showing his model UFO next to a miniature tree to prove that he could indeed duplicate photos
such as are found in the above referred to article. And RItzmann is vehement about my not using his model UFO photos in comparison with Meier's, a
rather peculiar position to take for someone who claims to be debunking such a fraud and hoax as he accuses Meier of being.
Lastly, your readers should thoroughly peruse:
All of these contain information on the true nature of most UFO sightings, extraterrestrials, etc. This info may be "too much" for all the believers
in various ET hypotheses because it is quite clear in detailing the terrestrial nature and origin of these things, which, if true, is not only a
bubble buster for many, many people but also presents further reason to contemplate the dreaded possibility that the Meier case is authentic...and
that certain parties with vested interests in promoting a contrary conclusion have been making fools of us for many decades.
Yes, there are questions about some photos, which I have honestly attempted to answer, in part by asking people to consider that if there indeed have
been so many unsuccessful attempts on the man's life (an awful lot of trouble to take to get rid of a "hoaxer"), then is it so unlikely that
sophisticated attempts to assassinate his character and credibility would be made by parties with the resources to do so?
Finally, a new documentary film on the Meier case will be completed by this summer. We've even gone to the trouble of including a fairly lengthy
segment by one of the top professional skeptics making his, and his organization's, best case against Meier and the evidence. We'll let the viewers
-and the readers here - decide the truth for themselves.
