James Randi and Kal K. Korff are Billy Meier's biggest "debunkers".
For whatever reason, I don't think that they are exactly the most credible sources of information out there.
James Randi, A Fraud
"William, many thanks for giving permission to pass on the information you sent me about James Randi.
It's incredible that this magician is striding around the Royal Society like a colossus while Prof. B.D. Josephson, a Nobel Laureate for Physics from
the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University, is attacked for daring to tell the truth and linking so-called paranormal phenomena with natural
forces in the universe. It's the sheer injustice of the whole thing that is getting to me. I think I would explode with frustration if it were not
for Jeff Rense giving the truth a platform.
From William Perron
To Michael Roll
Of course you may, absolutely, positively yes. When I tell skeptics that the million is just a publicity stunt they go into a blind denial. Randi is
quoted in an article called sTARBABY written by Dennis Rawlins a co founder of CSICOP, an organization that he quit in disgust after it was
revealed that Randi and other members falsified data as to the Gauquelin astrology reports.
In this article about three quarters thru Rawlins relates that he and Randi were talking about his then ten thousand dollar challenge and Rawlins asks
Randi if he wasn't concerned that some day he might have to give up the money and Randi answers that he wasn't concerned because he always has a way
out. He had no intention, then, in giving the money away and he has none now, either. It is only a publicity stunt. He is an ego maniac who needs
constant attention and will start trouble, call names whatever it takes to get that attention.
He has had two heroes, Houdini, and Dunninger, Houdini is who he tries to emulate with his paranormal debunking, and Dunninger is the guy who gave him
the idea for a phony monitory challenge. Most professional magicians such as myself have nothing but contempt for the nasty fellow. And in truth he
really never was a very good performer, only good at generating a lot of publicity for himself. I certainly hope I have been of some help to you."
Kal K. Korff, Also a Fraud

"Where Is the Objectivity?, September 15, 2003
Reviewer: Paul Winter (see more about me) from United States
Over the years, I have read more than 100 books on extraterrestrial activity. This is the first book on the subject that made no attempt what so ever
at being objective. As an author myself, I understand the standards of quality that most publishers demand. I am completely amazed that Korff was able
to find a publisher. If you have read Korff's book and thought that it was convincing, try searching the web for an article entitled "Analysis of
Korff's Spaceships of the Pleiades" written by Jeroen Jansen. Jansen performed a point by point analysis of Kroff's criticisms in a much more
objective light than Korff ever used. Jansen also points out that mainstream UFO organization officers praised Korff's book. By doing that these
officers proved that the brilliant article, "The Psychology of Dreamland" by Terry Hansen was right on the mark; the people who have volunteered to
be officers of UFO organizations are debunkers who work for the government. To recap, the most interesting aspect of Kroff's book is that he was able
to publish a book that was wholly unacceptable by modern journalistic standards.

Enters the CIA, April 30, 2003
Reviewer: April Seventeen from San Rafael, CA United States
The agenda here is very simple. Kal worked as senior analyst for Star Wars in Livermore California and is out to prove that UFOs don't exist. He
tried to do it with a debunking of Roswell, which is another litany of lies.
Star Wars is the main boondoggle of a clique of big government spenders, bent on selling politicians the idea that visitors from space have hostile
intentions toward earth. That does not sit well with the Billy Meier message that I encourage anyone to read for the survival of our species.
Meier's messages and photos begin to surface in 1975. By 1980, the CIA did not know what to do with it. Under the pretense of testing public
gullibility, two CIA agents came to Berkeley CAL and presented the public evidence of the Meier story. With insight, it was obviously with the intent
to falsfify the story. The falsified story would be later debunked.
By 1981, the clique debunkers had created a completely falsified story with numerous outrageous claims that Meier never did, and by painting strings
to his numerous photos, when they did not create fakes and attributed them to Billy.
Whenever a real and well documented UFO event occurs, agents for the clique create a counterfeit event, closely ressembling the real event, that is
later debunked. They did not have to pay Kal, he just fell for it, unless he was paid to write what he did.
Whenever one comes across the names of Kal Korff, Richard Motzer, James Oberg, Karl Pflock, Philip Klass, Donald Menzel, Carl Sagan and other official
debunkers, bear in mind that all of the above worked or benefited from the clique and are out to spread lies.

Poorly Researched, Or Has An Agenda!, February 23, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Boca Raton, FL
This is one of the worst researched books on the Billy Meier UFO Case I have ever read. In fact this book is so bad that I have to wonder if it was a
deliberate attempt at character assassination. Anyone mildly familiar with the Billy Meier case can easily see how poorly researched this book is. So
many facts are wrong that it would take an entire book to correct them. If you are interested in the true facts of this case I recommend you read
"LIGHT YEARS" By Gary Kinder, "UFO CONTACT FROM THE PLEIADES" by Wendell Stevens or the new book "AND YET THEY FLY" by Guido Moosbrugger. Any of
these books are far superior to this book!

Billy Meier "researcher" Fools Public, May 16, 2001
Reviewer: Philip McAiney (see more about me) from Windsor, ON CANADA
Kal Korff's book about Billy Meier is a thesis on his own imagination. Constantly explaining his in-depth "research" of discovering Meier
"hoaxed" all 1,200 photos of UFOs, including 7 8mm films and metal samples that reputable, credible scientists with degrees in their fields have
been unable to explain as a hoax backed up by the generality "they're models held up with strings" etc., is proof the book should be displayed in
the humor section of a bookstore. Since the compound that belongs to Meier's GROUP (not himself) has an Open Sunday 52 times a year, how can anyone
pretend they "infiltrated" it? Showing some honesty and respect will allow anyone to sit and talk to various people there and share their own UFO
experiences. Meier knows no one believes him and never will until one of the UFOs lands on their own lawn, or that of the White House on CNN. In the
meantime, he writes books about his experiences and his group, the F.I.G.U., has established a Web Site to give free data to interested persons.
Checking out www.figu.ch should help people experience and learn some of the data Meier was given, on the condition he would publish it so that people
on Earth would have a chance to learn something. A look at the conditions around out planet should convince anyone we could use a new viewpoint."
Doesn't anyone research anymore? This is pathetic. I can't believe that anyone still believes that James Randi's Million is authentic. Even
worse, Kal K. Korff's ridiculous excuse for a book, "Spaceships of the Pleiades" is full of complete lies and contains a near infinite number of
implausible or far-fetched ideas.
Meier did/does have ONE ARM, after all! And even with two arms, and hell, even with assistants he couldn't have faked those photographs!
Steven Spielberg once tried to copy Meier's photographs, and just couldn't do it. He lettered Meier on the matter, asking:
"How did you make those neat UFO films?"
"Well, when the ships come I point my camera and press the button."
