I share your disappointment, your interesting point of view of what is going on here. There can't be forbidden questions in a place in which
supposedly the idea is to be open to discussion of anything and free expression of ideas, with the reasonable respect to norms of good communication
The thread was never opened to defend Meiers case, that I believe is the real reason for which the thread was moved, according with the own
words of Argyll one of the members that came here to reply exactly that.
The idea was to open a space of discussion of all the findings around this case, since not all was exposed at once, since the way this was
discredited was gradually thanks to different teams that devoted work to do it. Now, I even posted links to attack the claims of Billy Meier, so that
is a proof of my objectivity on the topic.
Other important reason to open the thread is precisely because there are many people that is much younger than Springer or other old members of the
ATS UfO forum that don't know anything on the case, for the simple reason that they were born after it.
Before to open the thread I read an article in which Matthew Wieczkiewicz, a NASA engineer, who supported NASA projects like Space
Shuttle, International Space Station, working for Boeing and Honeywell - endorses the Swiss UFO contactee Billy Meier, partners with They Fly
Productions for public presentations.
The article is just from March of 2014 and it is still posted in the web in a lot of paranormal sites around the world, here are some links.
Before is News about Billy Meier
endorsement by NASA Scientists
Other article I found in the web claims that Kenneth Smith, the Director of Operations at Orbital Launch System Group (Ret) and Dr. Jill Tarter of
SETI, also endorsed its authenticity.
Scientific Experts’ Comments on Meier’s Evidence
he isn't alone. Respected scientists like Michael Mailn (NASA, Mars Mission) and David Froning long ago recognized the authenticity of Billy
Meier's UFO evidence and the importance of his information on hyperspace propulsion.
Those articles caught my attention and well I decide to post the thread to recall an entire chapter of the History of Ufology, in spite of it was a
hoax or not.
It is just needed to analyze the number of documentaries that were inspired on it, and that are still posted in web in very public sites like youtube,
that are not under the control of Meier organization, to see all the people that were involved in working on its analysis, so there is no way deny
that the case really caught the attention of the entire world for a while, in particular experts on the Ufo phenomon.
I come from an academic environment where there is no punishment to ask questions about topics that science has long time showed do not correspond to
We know the so many Gods of the Greek Mythology are perfectly inexistent, the deities of the native americans are not the explanation of the way
the forces of nature work, but that does not mean Homer or the Prehispanic myths are forbidden to be studied. We know the epicycles of Ptolemy are
not the correct explanation of the apparent orbit of the planets in the sky, so the center of the universe is not the earth. We know there is no
spontaneous generation of life, or that there is no life in mars or that the channels on that planet are natural formations, we know the laws of
Newton are a rough approximation of the motion of objects, that they don't work at speed light.
Nevertheless, all those are topics that are treated in the classes of any University around the world, as part of the History of science, Literature,
anthropology and human thinking.
I never have read any author saying that Homer was a hoax maker that embarrass the History of Greece because he invented the ancient
Mythology from his own head, or that Ptolomy must be excluded at all to be published in our days, or That Jonathan Swift or Lewis Carol works deserve
to be send to the trash can, as putrid lies, because well no body has found lands in which the people are one inch tall or giants as tall as a
building, and of course who can cross a mirror to enter in other dimension?
As a matter of fact the entire History of Literature is precisely an exercise of imagination by the way, and nobody is claiming that is an stupidity
to even read books that we know by sure are fiction.
Let me finish posting here the link of History Channel devoted to talk about the case of Billy Meier, as an evidence that this topic
actually made History and must be treated as something probably false but relevant.
There are many different ways to react with respect to aspects of the reality we don't like and in this case unfortunately I think the negativism is
prevailing over anything else.
