FINAL PROOF MEIER'S UFO PHOTOS GENUINE!
You are about to be presented with, and perhaps even confronted by, clear and incontrovertible proof that the UFO photo and film evidence in the Meier case is authentic, unfalsified and irreproducible with the technology known to have been available to Billy Meier at the time that he presented his 35mm photographic, 8mm film and other physical evidence. It is also still irreproducible today, even with the best digital effects.
Whether you are a sophisticated photographic and visual/special effects expert, or simply a layman, the use of common sense alone will be sufficient for you to understand the authenticity, and importance, of the evidence that you will see. And, as already suggested, an honest application of technological expertise will reveal, and result in, the same findings.
The Skeptical Argument
The skeptical argument against Billy Meier's stunningly clear, "too good to be true", UFO photographs, films and video has been that Meier used model UFOs and also model, or miniature, trees to create his evidence. This was the original claim made by CFI-West/IIG, in 2001 when they accepted my challenge to duplicate just one of Meier's UFO photos and one of his films. Naturally, that is a challenge they have never been able to meet.
Their claims that Meier used such models to create what they referred to as "an esily duplicated hoax" were presented by their current lead investigator, Derek Bartholomaus, in his carefully scripted presentation in the Special Features section of our film, The Silent Revolution of Truth (now being released as The Billy Meier Story: UFOs and Prophecies from Outer Space). Subsequent to the release of the film, Mr. Bartholomaus was forced to retract his foundational claims regarding models, since he was completely unable (despite years of preparation) to produce any evidence for them, without so much as one photograph of a comparable model tree to support his assertions.
Further, his attempt to get Academy Award-winning Uncharted Territory to retract their statement regarding the virtual impossiblity that Meier used model UFOs was not only rebuffed, they clearly restated their same evaluation. So frustrated was Mr. Bartholomaus, when other examples of his incompetence and false claimes were revealed, that he then took to falsifying emails from me to try to distract from the implosion of his own demolished credibility.
A Final Attempt
The last individual to try to debunk Meier's photographic evidence, British skeptic Tony Wharton, tried to duplicate the photos and film/video with small models, predictably unimpressive as they are. But at least he tried.
Wharton chose one particular photo, known as the "Sunight UFO", in his final attempt at debunking and duplicating Meier's evidence. You'll notice that the last photo on that page shows a man standing next to a tree, which we say is the same tree in Meier's photo. In Meier's photo the tree is barren-branched, since the photographs were taken as winter was ending, in 1976. I should also point out that the photo is one of 34 in the Hasenböl series, which also includes stunningly clear photos of the UFO in earlier daylight hours, several of which can be seen here. Clicking on the photos, like this one, reveal the intricate detail of this craft.
See for Yourself
So as to present the final proof referred to in the title above, we first present this photo of the Sunlight UFO next to one of the barren-branched trees:
(You may also wish to see James Deardorff's precise, detailed examination and analysis of this photo that establish the proximity of the UFO to the tree.)
Now here is a video clip from the film "Beamship - The Movie Footage" (courtesy of Intercep/Genesis III, copyright 1985) that shows Meier and Jun-Ichi Yaoi, a director and investigator for NTV (Nippon TV) discussing the famous Hasenböl photos. Yaoi and Meier are shown, next to the trees,while visiting the actual, easily identifiable location where Meier took his photo series, years before. Please note that not only are the trees, which are now in full leafy bloom, exactly the same full-sized trees, but the mountains in the background are also seen to be exactly the same ones that appear in the photo:
Once again, please remember that everyone who has attacked the evidence in the case, from Kal Korff to CFI-West, from Derek Barholomaus and his associates at IIG, to James Randi and Michael Shermer, have all steadfastly claimed that Meier used both model UFOs and model trees. It should now be abundantly, irrefutably clear - to even the most hardcore skeptic - that those claims are now shown to be completely false and unsubstantiated. And, by establishing the trees as full-sized, it's clear that the UFO is not only not a model, it must be around 21' in diameter, as Meier has long maintained.
Now that it is clear and obvious that the trees in the Hasenböl photo sequence were indeed full-sized, and that Meier didn't use a model UFO, we'll ice that cake (for those who still need it) with the following excerpt from a film of the Hasenböl UFO that Meier took on the same day that he took the photo series. Once again, this has been hidden in plain sight for a long time. In this clip you will see that the UFO emits two separate beams of coherent light - in broad daylight - something that would have been impossible to hoax. When I showed this film segment to the owners of Uncharted Territory, I told them that Vaughn Rees (the original case investigator for CFI-West/IIG, in 2001) had said that the light was "an effect created by scratching the negative with a pin".
This was soundly rejected by Volker Engel and Marc Weigert as clearly not being the case at all. They stated that they were, of course, quite familiar with that rather primitive technique but that it didn't apply here and they stated that the UFO itself was also not a small model. (Let's remember that both Engel and Weigert are also UFO skeptics!) One would be very hard pressed to find a compelling example of a similarly convincing special effect in a film segment from any space or science fiction movie up to that time - or even up to today. Note that most so-called spaceships/UFOs shown in films appear either at night or in simulated space scenes. Meier's film was taken during the daytime and includes a close-up of the UFO, showing its highly detailed construction.
Wendelle Stevens reported the following, on page 284 of the Preliminary Investigation Report:
“The analysts examining the movie footage from this last event were amazed to find that what at first looked like a flash of reflected sunlight from a part of the rim of the ship and an area of the dome, was in fact a projected beam of bright coherent white light from something. The beam is clearly seen and it is sharply distinct and does not spread out as it leaves the ship.”
Here then is a short clip from Meier's Hasenbol film so that you can clearly see the two white lights alternating flashing from the UFO.
