Probably the only rational reaction when first encountering the Meier material is one of extreme scepticism - the first time I came across it I
thought it was all nonsense. But the more people look into it, the more they seem to change their opinion. The best example, and one of the most
convincing aspects of the whole case, is the small tightknit group of friends who assist Billy Meier. Nearly every one was sceptical, disinterested
until having sightings of their own and coming full circle to believe in him. These are schoolteachers, accountants, doctors, a retired headmaster,
very normal middle aged Swiss folks, not UFO fanatics.
So don't be put off by the knockers
A couple of things which stood out for me was that his mission was never to convince everyone, or even to convince as many people as possible. He is
very much laying the groundwork, for the future. Often it is mentioned that his evidence has an element of 'plausable deniability' - its not air
tight, and if people don't want to accept it, that avenue is there. This was seen as preferable to simply pulling back the curtain, telling people a
lot of what they believe is wrong and shoving proof in their faces, to which most people would react negatively.
But the sheer volume of his contact notes - if one person can think up all that, he must be some kind of genius, ETs or no!
