Organization expected to retract defamatory claims,
facilitate $1,000,000 award to Swiss man

Michael Horn

LOS ANGELES - It was only a matter of time before a breakthrough
in authenticating the existence of non-terrestrial UFOs would
take place but, surely, nobody thought it would come about this
way. Despite mounting evidence over the past half-century the
arbiters and manipulators of public opinion in media,
governmental and scientific circles, along with professional
skeptics and debunkers, have marginalized serious discussion of
UFOs and dismissed all evidence as inconclusive and flawed.

Defamatory Claims?

A special target, at the top of the hit list for skeptics and
debunkers for more than 25 years, are the claimed contacts of a
Swiss man, Billy Meier. Meier, who claimed that his contacts
with extraterrestrial human began in 1942, when he was five
years old, also says that they continue to this day, more than
60 years later. But the skeptics, in labeling Meier and his
evidence as fraudulent, claim that he hoaxed his 35mm photos and
8mm film segments of the UFOs during the mid-1970s using models
or some unidentified form of special effects wizardry to
accomplish the alleged deception. Professional skeptics, such as
the international organization CFI, magician/skeptic The
"Amazing" Randi and science writer/skeptic Michael Shermer, have
long been in the forefront of those accusing Meier of hoaxing
his physical evidence, which also includes video and sound
recordings, as well as metal alloy samples.

Meier=92s supporters state that these claims run counter to the
results of scientific examination of Meier=92s evidence by experts
from JPL, IBM, USGS and Nippon TV, as well as special effects
expert Wally Gentleman, known for his work on Stanley Kubrick=92s
"2001", among many films. They also claim that all of Meier=92s
physical evidence remains irreproducible even with today=92s

The Challenge

In order to definitively resolve the matter, in early February
2001, a number of Meier=92s more than 1200 photos and eight film
segments were presented for examination to case investigator
Vaughn Rees of CFI West, the Los Angeles branch of CFI. Mr. Rees
concluded that, in his expert opinion, they were all "easily
duplicated hoaxes" and that the two lights seen flashing
alternately from two different parts of the UFO in the film
(Hasenbol, March 18, 1976 at:
www.figu.org/us/ufology/videos.htm) were accomplished simply by
Meier=92s scratching the film with a pin.

Mr. Rees agreed to back up his claims by duplicating one of
Meier=92s UFO photos along with the film segment, which should be
the easiest to duplicate because it was the only one of Meier=92s
that had no other objects in it to compare to the UFO. Mr. Rees
stated that he already had a 35mm photo camera and knew where to
acquire an 8mm movie camera. His work wasn=92t required to be
exact to the last detail, just convincingly comparable in
quality to Meier=92s.

Over the next two months Mr. Rees failed to submit anything to
back up his claims and, in May of 2001, it was suggested that he
could try using any high-tech equipment available to him, i.e.
computers, special effects, Photo Shop, etc., to fulfill his
commitment. It was also suggested that, if he wished to be
sporting about it, he should use only one hand since Meier is a
one-armed man.

The Results

Two years later, at a UFO conference in February of 2003, Mr.
Rees was confronted about his failure to meet the challenge. He
responded that he still didn=92t have access to a photo-processing
lab, which Meier himself never had access to, having sent all of
his films off to a local shop for developing. Mr. Rees was
reminded that he could, and perhaps had already tried to, use
any high-tech means at his disposal instead. In a comparable
two-year period Mr. Meier had, with one hand, produced hundreds
of photos, while the able-bodied, technology-savvy Mr. Rees had
produced none.

Now, about three-years have passed and Mr. Rees has still failed
to provide even one photo or film to back up his claims. In a
three-year period of time Meier had taken nearly 1,000
photographs and, in about one year=92s time, he took at least one-
half dozen of his 8mm films, and he did all of this using only
one hand! A comparable number and quality of such types of films
for an individual special effects person during the mid-1970s
(and maybe any other time period) would be quite respectable,
though an Internet search will reveal that no such cinematic
accomplishments, professional or otherwise, exist.

This may be the first, and most important, time in history that
skeptics have set out to disprove a presumed hoax and ended up
proving its authenticity. And, in this case, what they proved is
undoubtedly the factuality of the most important event in human
history, the existence of, and contact with, extraterrestrials.

What Integrity Demands

The professional skeptics of the Meier case have concocted all
sorts of fanciful notions and theories as to how he hoaxed the
evidence. But when challenged to prove their claims they
repeatedly replied that it was not their job to attempt to
duplicate the evidence, although conducting themselves according
to the scientific method would require it. Their time for
freely, and irresponsibly, attacking Meier ran out when Mr. Rees
and CFI West utterly and completely failed to meet the challenge
they had finally accepted. In so doing, they effectively proved
Meier=92s UFOs real and their own claims unsubstantiated and

Unequivocal public retractions and apologies are now due Meier
from CFI West, Vaughn Rees, Randi, Michael Shermer, etc. They
have indulged in character assassination, slander and libel, and
the sloppiest, least scientific thinking imaginable. It is now
absolutely incumbent upon any and all of the skeptics who have
offered money for proof of "paranormal" phenomenon, to offer it
to Meier and his non-profit organization in Switzerland, FIGU.
Specifically, the offer by Randi of $1,000,000 for proof of a
paranormal ability has been more than satisfied and must be

Integrity demands that they now live up to their word. There can
be absolutely no argument, dispute or doubt now, especially
considering the abysmal, failed attempts by the skeptical
accusers themselves, with any tools at their disposal, to
debunk, let alone duplicate, Meier=92s stunning proof. Now it=92s
time to recognize that the most important event in human history
has occurred and to discover what meaning it holds for us.


While the skeptics have offered an unexpected contribution to
authenticating what have come to be known as the Meier Contacts,
it=92s really only the tip of a very deep and solid iceberg of
irrefutable proof far beyond a reasonable doubt.

Noted Astronomer Corroborates Additional Evidence

In April of 2003, Dr. Joseph Veverka, Chairman of the Astronomy
Department at Cornell University, was presented with
documentation of specific information on Jupiter, its rings and
its moons, published by Meier in October, 1978, five months
before the Voyager probe photographed and relayed the
information back to Earth. When shown the evidence that Meier
described the moon Io as being the most volcanically active body
in the solar system, prior to the first official knowledge of it
in March of 1979, Dr. Veverka was direct and candid, "If he said
that 3-5 months before, then all that I can say is that he=92s

Meier also documented the fact that Jupiter had rings; described
the chemical composition of the planet=92s surface, the coloration
of it=92s moons, Io=92s smooth surface and Europa being encrusted in
ice. But far more amazingly, Meier accurately described both the
composition and the source of Jupiter=92s rings 20 years before
scientists from Cornell announced their findings, in 1998!

Prophetically Accurate Information

In February of 1995, Meier published a lengthy document of
enormous complexity in which he foretold the likelihood of
certain specific future events. In September 2001, portions of
that information were included in the book "And Yet They Fly!"
written by Guido Moosbrugger, an Austrian former schoolteacher
and principle acquainted with Meier for about 25 years.

The following seven items, foretold on pages 347 and 348 of "And
Yet They Fly!" have recently occurred and virtually in the
sequence Meier foretold:

1. The strike or attack by the US and its president (Iraq).
Meier even used the word "stun" when he said the strike would
"...stun the entire world..." "Stun" is a synonym for the term
"shock" used by the US as in "shock and awe".

2. Meier correctly predicted the following upsurge in unrest
and violence from Islamic fundamentalists.

3. Meier foretold the spread of AIDS, which has indeed become
very widespread.

4. Mad Cow Disease has since spread to other animals and humans
as Meier also predicted.

5. Meier said that a new disease and epidemic would then appear
and SARS did just that.

6. His warning regarding a renewed threat of chemical warfare is
more in the news than ever.

7. Meier specifically warned of the possibility of an accident,
one that he said could be avoided, however, at the nuclear power
plant near Lyon, France. The emergency scenario, and the timely
shut down of that exact plant, occurred on August 12, 2003.

Now, in case the astronomically high odds against any kind of
coincidences or lucky guesses aren=92t apparent, consider that
Meier identified the following eight years in advance:

1. The exact country and leader (out of hundreds) that would
launch a stunning attack and a synonym for the term actually
used by that country=92s leader (impossible to calculate).

2. The exact religious group (out of thousands) that would
respond with their own attacks.

3. The exact disease (out of thousands) that would spread widely
among humans.

4. The exact animal disease (out of thousands) that would spread
to other animals and humans.

5. The sudden appearance of a new disease and epidemic.

6. The exact kind of weapons and warfare that would cause
renewed threats.

7. The exact location (out of 436) and type of facility (out of
several) that would have a near-accident.

If this doesn't qualify as a genuine demonstration of psychic or
paranormal abilities nothing does.

And it far exceeds any reasonable requirements to garner the
financial award promised for such a demonstration, though that
never has been the purpose of Meier=92s mission. It is only
fitting, however, that those who have long accused him of being
a hoaxer out for non-existent, and unproven, financial gain,
should now have the opportunity to reward him, not only for his
abilities, but also for suffering the fools and their defamation
for so long.

For those who may be unaware, in addition to character
assassination, Meier has survived 19 (documented) actual
assassination attempts.

The Sound Recordings

Finally, the skeptics (and others who=92ve actually tried) have
also been unable to reproduce the sound recordings Meier made of
a UFO, using only a cassette tape recorder, in an open field in
front of 15 witnesses. There are 32 simultaneous frequencies
occurring, 24 in the audible and eight in the inaudible range.
To date, they remain irreproducible even with state-of-the-art
synthesizers, let alone with cassette machines outdoors.

You can hear, and download, a three-minute sample of the sounds
at: and experiment with them yourself. You will also find more
documentation on the Meier Contacts at this website.

The Most Important Event In Human History

Now that the authenticity of the Meier Contacts have been firmly
established, we can begin to examine the information, and the
real purpose, behind the most important event in human history.

Hint: It has to do with our future survival.
