Every once in a while the same question is posed to me...'do you think Billy Meier is a hoaxer' or a similar question. Until now, I have avoided saying too much...but overall, I would say that most of the evidence is hard to believe. Meier has his supporters, many of whom are friends. I have just abstained from getting involved in an argument. First off, let's go through the basic information.
"Billy" Eduard Albert Meier was born on February 3, 1937, in Bülach/Zurich, Switzerland. He states that he had his first extraterrestrial contacts at the age of five with Sfath who was from from Erra (Pleiades/Plejaren), from 1942 to 1953. From 1953 to 1964 his contacts were with Asket from a sister universe to our own called the DAL universe. Then from 1975 to 1986 his contacts were with Semjase and Ptaah and Quetzal.
The Pleiadians / Plejarens and their confederates are human beings with physical bodies and look very much like the people on Earth, with the exception of some minor anatomical differences, especially regarding the confederates. They live for 1,000 years, approximately. Their home planet -- somewhat smaller than Earth -- is called Erra. Its population is about 500 million people, while the entire federation has a population of 120 billion. The Pleiades / Plejaren are not identical with the Pleiades we can see on the night sky. They are 80 light-years beyond the Pleiades in another space-time configuration (another dimension). The Pleiadians / Plejarens' consciousness ("spirit") and technology are much more highly developed than here on Earth. The Pleiadians / Plejarens and the people on Earth have the same ancestors, but have developed separately.
From 1975 until August 19, 2003, there have been 632 personal and 748 telepathic contacts with Pleiadian / Plejaran extraterrestrials and members of their Federation. The contacts are still on-going. More then 347 contacts have been documented and available as contact reports. As of 2003, 16 volumes of Contact Notes, each consists of 200 pages, are available (German only) Some of the subject matters discussed are: Creation and its creations, origin of the universe, earth history, science, astronomy, spirituality, reincarnation, genetic engineering, terrestrial religions, human evolution, spiritual teachings, interplanetary space flight, galactic federation, extraterrestrial origin and visitation to Earth, telepathy, overpopulation on Earth, destruction of the environment, male-female relationships, government and military cover-ups, and many more.
Hundreds of photos taken of beamships and their landing tracks, among other things Photographs of 5 different variations of spacecraft, from 3.5 to 7 meter, usually piloted by humans. Other spacecraft and telemeter discs are remotely controlled and have also been photographed on several occasions. There also exist huge spaceships for traveling through space. There are photographs of single or multiple objects, day and night settings, above and below horizon line. There exist video and super 8 footage. Film analyzed by electron microscope, laser scanning and computer functions, thermogram edge identification, Z scale contour, density and film grain inspection, processed by electron microscope, microdensitometer, infraredometer, vidicon tube, digitizer, image process computer equipment.
Different segments of 8 mm motion picture film
The films show variations in flight of ships; multiple craft appearances; instantaneous spatial translations by space craft; portions of the films have been analyzed in frame by frame format.
4 metal, 1 biological and 9 mineral and crystal samples
Metal analysis was described thoroughly in video tape format (Beamship the Metal). It showed that the metal was made by a cold fusion process. This technology is not yet known by terrestrial metallurgy.
A 20 minutes sound recording of a beamship's whirring sound
The sound recordings of a non-shielded beamship was taken in the presence of several witnesses who heard the deafening noise, but weren't able to observe the ship that was screened from sight. The loud whirring sound could be heard for more than 4 kilometers as was confirmed by persons who soon arrived at the location. The scientific investigation showed that the sound is compromised of many tones/frequencies with unusual anomalies and rapid changes in tone and frequencies. Download the Beamship sound!
Depending on the type of beamship there could be seen 1 or 3 landing tracks. When three, they were 120 degrees apart, circular; grass was depressed in counterclockwise rotational direction, visible for months after landing occurred. Both existing and new grass were affected.
In addition to "Billy" Meier there are more than 70 people who have witnessed the evidence regarding the Pleiadians / Plejarens, their beamships, or Billy himself.
The Plejaren are a race of extraterrestrials that claim to be from a different time/space continuum than our own. The Plejaren say that they come from the Pleidiades constellation, but in a different dimension. So if you were to go to the seven sister stars you would not find the Plejaren home world. These beings are human like in nature. They could walk through a crowd of people and you would not know that they were extraterrestrials.
These beings supposedly contacted a man by the name of Eduard Albert Meier. These beings gave him chronicles about earth's history, our present, and our possible future. Also Eduard also known as Billy Meier was contacted by another group of E.T's who claimed to be from another universe. They claimed they were from a reality called the Dal universe.
Billy Meier unlike many other people who have been abducted by aliens, was not an abductee but rather a contactee. Billy Meier lives on a large farm in Switzerland. When he was a little boy his first contact was made with the Plejaren. They gave him information about his pastlives on earth, and also gave him some scientific information. The Plejarens claim that they are descended from an ancient civilizations of people called the Lyrans. The Plejaren have the technological capability to travel through time and travel between universes. They also possess telepathic abilities which allows to them to send and receive thoughts. In appearance the Pleidians are about average human height and they are Caucasian in skin color. The Plejaren exist 500 lights years away from earth.
There are many websites dedicated to disproving Meier's claims though the best, in my opinion, are The Billy Meier UFO Hoax and The Billy Meier Case.
Ron Bracale wrote a simple but precise article for UFO Case Book:
I would like to comment on the Billy Meier case, as in my opinion it appears to be a hoax. Several articles have cited it as fact, but the pictures appear to be forgeries. Some appear to be models hanging in trees, while others either have lighting anomalies or contrast and brightness incongruence.
Still others have disturbed pixels surrounding the UFO image, indicating that the image was doctored. I have spent many years working with graphics and cannot accept a single image as authentic. What anyone should ask is this, "If the images were taken with a 35 mm camera that was the standard at the time, why have no high resolution images been released?"
35 mm film is capable of being transferred to extremely high resolution digital images, which would end any potential debate about their authenticity. Even a frame from 8 mm film can be transferred to a high resolution digital image. If the images were authentic, then they would be presented at a resolution that would lend credence to them as evidence for the UFO phenomena.
I believe that UFO crafts are very real phenomena, but I do not accept these images as evidence. Many sites on the Internet also support my opinion that Meier’s photographs are forgeries.
I went to the web site www.theyfly.com and there found a link to “Beamship Sounds here!” I am a musician with three released CDs, and synthesizers are something I know well. This sound clip is a synthesizer sound. It has the artifact of a looping process that is clear as day to a trained ear.
Such artifacts are common with modern digital delays and in the early days of electronic music, tape loops had the same quality which is clearly evident in this fake beamship sound. Some might try and stretch the facts to say that something in the beamship engine just happens to sound like a modern artificial sound with a looping process occurring, but the probability of that is extremely low, invalidating these sounds as valid evidence.
I believe that understanding the UFO situation is a topic of unparalleled importance to humanity. Every presentation of questionable material allows skeptics to undermine the scientific research process which is crucial to gaining a true understanding of these phenomena. Critical analysis of all evidence must occur and as such, there are bound to be differences of opinion. My opinion is that the Billy Meier case is a hoax. - UFO Case Book
There is a follow up at The Billy Meier Photos and Videos. I also suggest you read the comments made by Wendelle Stevens...including an interview he had with Meier in 1999. I leave it up to you and form your own opinion.
