First, I apologize for creating another Billy Meier thread. Unfortunately, this information doesn't really seem to fit within any of the currently
active Meier threads. As some of you may know I am the Lead Investigator into the Billy Meier Case for the Independent Investigations Group.
Today (2008-09-19) the IIG has distributed a press release concerning Billy Meier's publicist, Michael Horn, publicly admitting to posting false and
misleading documents on his website in order to support the various claims made by Billy Meier. We have also reformatted the Billy Meier section of
the IIG website and updated it with what will be about 50-60% of the final report on the case. You can go to
to read our findings.
Here is the text of the press release:
Longtime UFO Proponent Admits To Publishing Misleading Articles In Order To Support His Claims
The Various Claims Of Billy Meier Are Now Made Even More Unlikely
Los Angeles, CA - September 19, 2008: The Independent Investigations Group (IIG) is the West Coast’s leading Paranormal Investigations group. One
of the more prominent cases that the IIG has looked into is regarding the alleged UFO Contactee, Eduard Albert "Billy" Meier. An individual by the
name of Michael Horn is the North American Publicist for Mr. Meier.
On August 27, 2008 in a public email Michael Horn sent to the IIG he revealed that he had posted false and misleading articles on his website. When
confronted with this revelation Mr. Horn admitted to posting these false and misleading articles on his website in order to try and support the claims
of Billy Meier.
Michael Horn also promotes several other claims made by Billy Meier. These claims include tales that Meier has traveled into the past on a flying
saucer and took photographs of dinosaurs. However, his photographs turned out to be photographs of illustrations of dinosaurs taken from a book.
Meier also published photographs of who he claimed was his extra-terrestrial contact, but it turned out that these were photographs of a singer
performing on The Dean Martin Variety Show. Michael Horn also promotes the "prophecies" of Billy Meier. In January 2007 he claimed that one of
these prophecies, which concerned the coming of World War III, had actually come true when four Heads of State died within seven days of each other.
The problem with this “prophecy” is that the four Heads of State mentioned in the article did not die within seven days of each other like the
“prophecy” claimed that they would.
