Extraterrestrials and Prophecies
Controversy of Billy Meier
by Dirk Vander
Ploeg Posted October 26, 2006
Saturday night (October 21, 2006) I was in
Toronto, Ontario attending a presentation at the
Ontario Science Centre. The program was entitled
"The Meier Contacts", The Key to Our Future
I was there to hear Michael Horn, Billy Meier's
representative in North America, give us a glimpse
into the real "Billy" Eduard Albert Meier.
The evening was divided into 3 parts: an
audio/visual presentation, question and answer
period and workshops for discussion of topics of
interest to the attendees.
Michael Horn lives in Los Angeles and travels
throughout North America promoting the life and
times of Billy Meier.
As usual I wrote down a few questions that I
would like to get answered by the presenter.
In this instance I was interested in
discovering if Mr. Meier was familiar with or
personally knows Erich von Daniken. What you
probably know is that they both have made
important contributions to the study of UFOs and
extraterrestrials. They are also approximately the
same age and both live in Switzerland.
Many of you know that I have read quite a bit
about UFOs and extraterrestrials. I have also
watched UFO and paranormal documentaries and was
familiar, at least to a limited fashion, with the
Billy Meier story.
The first term, description, thought of Mr.
Meier that comes into my mind was "hoaxer." That's
right, I had been influenced, biased to the point
where I had formed an opinion of a gentleman whom
I hadn't even met or even seriously studied. Then
an image, a scene starts playing in my mind. A
pendulum swinging from right to left and suspended
from an invisible string is a flying saucer!
Another fact pops into my head, something about
a messy divorce and allegations of model UFOs and
faked photos and films. I give myself a slap in
the head and pry my mind open setting back to
absorb Mr. Horn's oratory.
was quite an adventurer in his youth. See the
photo to the right and imagine a young Meier as
Indiana Jones. He traveled extensively going as
far as India, Turkey and Greece. He even joined
the French Foreign Legion, but after an
unsatisfactory tour, deserted and walked back to
civilization. He then tried his luck at truck
driving but this turned out to be even more
disastrous than his stint in the Legion as he lost
his left arm in a traffic accident in Turkey.
Mr. Horn commented that after spending sometime
in the emergency ward of a local hospital, Mr.
Meier, hallucinating and out of his mind with
fever and pain, once again went on a "walkabout"
only to come to his senses some weeks later,
bruised, bleeding, cloths tattered, lying on the
side of the road. Mr. Meier was surprised to even
Returning to Switzerland via Greece he met his
future wife Kalliope, whom he divorced as I
Between 1975 and 1976 Meier lived alone in his
farmhouse, maintaining a simple life and working
as a night watchman. It was during this time that
the Pleiadians chose Billy to be their human
One can only speculate as to why emissaries
from a space faring race would choose a one armed
itinerant farmer to be their conduit to
The movie footage and the photographs of
extraterrestrial craft have been judged as being
the best examples of flying saucers ever taken. In
fact, the quality and the movement of the craft
demonstrated in the photos look artificial and
Over the years, debunkers, skeptics have
claimed to be able to duplicate the movies and the
photos. They state that Meier faked the movies and
used models to create a fantastic hoax. To date,
no one has managed to prove that Meier faked any
film or photographs. No one has successfully
duplicated any of Meier's films or photos either.
Remember, the personal computer was in its infancy
and Adobe Photoshop wasn't even a dream yet. Mr.
Meier was not educated in photography and was
handicapped by the loss of his left arm.
One of the loudest debunkers was a professional
model maker Jeff Ritzmann who attempted to
recreate the famous Wedding Cake photos. After
months of labor, Mr. Ritzmann had his models
complete. Mr. Horn compared Mr. Meier's actual
photos side-by-side with Mr. Rizmann's photos and
let the audience compare.
From my vantage point Mr. Ritzmann's model was
very similar to Mr. Meier's. Similar but not
exact. In fact, much of the detail seen in Meier's
photos was missing in Mr. Ritzmann's model. This
was simply a model, a static representation of a
craft seen in a photo. Mr. Ritzmann, although he
had promised to do so, did not attempt to fly his
model or place it in photographs or film. This
attempt to duplicate Billy Meier's photos and
films took place in 2005!
Remember, Meier's material was shot 30 years
Mr. Horn then offered evidence to the audience
of Mr. Meier's films. By going to Switzerland and
finding the exact locales where the films/photos
were shot and by measuring distances from
landmarks, the positions of trees etc. one can
prove that the photographs, indeed the objects in
the photographs are authentic.
There is a raging debate between advocates and
debunkers concerning Mr. Meier's evidence so at
this point I will leave it up to the reader to do
the research before reaching their own
As the title of the article states there is
also a prophetic element to Mr. Meier and his
Pleiadians visitors whom he describes as: Sfath, a
man from the Pleiadian star cluster, Ptaah, a man,
the commander of the Pleiadian spaceship fleet,
Asket, a beautiful woman from the DAL Universe,
Semjase, also a woman, from the Seven Sisters of
The last mentioned visitor Semjase asked Meier
to accept and spread their message to the
inhabitants of earth. Their message begins:
"Above everything there exists one entity,
Creation, it holds the power over every being's
life and death. Creation alone extends its laws
She also conveyed to Meier:
"Man must study Creation's spiritual laws, and
not pray to gods who are nothing more than
extraterrestrial visitors from bygone days, who
had elevated themselves to the position of
so-called gods to gain power over these primitive
human beings on Earth and to enslave them.
Such an obstacles prevents Man from studying
the Creational laws and striving for a life of
harmony with nature. Man's ambition to subject
Earth will ultimately destroy this planet."

Over the years, Meier has received numerous
prophecies from the Pleiadians, which he has
recorded, and in some instances shared with others
to be kept confidential until the specific
predictions came to pass. I will list a few of the
more amazing and leave it to you to believe or
Prophecy Date: February 28,
Prediction: warning of the
destruction of the World Trade Center (WTC) by
terrorism, the series of worldwide wars that the
US would subsequently launch, and military actions
involving Russia, China, France, Germany, Spain,
England, Scandinavia and many Third World and
Event: September 11, 2001, the WTC was
destroyed; the United States has already attacked
Afghanistan and Iraq as of the time of this
writing.Prophecy Date: October 19, 1978
Prediction: Meier described existence of
Jupiter's rings, saying:
1. They are composed
mainly of dust, particles, sulphur ions flung off
by volcanoes on Io;
2. Described Io as the
most volcanically active body in the solar system,
and smooth, level-surfaced with no water;
described Europa as ice-encrusted;
said to have 17 "actual" moons;
nature of Jupiter's huge funnel-shaped storm.
Event: March 5, 1979, NASA's Voyager 1
probe discovered the rings of Jupiter, that Io is
the most volcanically active body in the solar
system and that Europa is covered in ice-five
months after Meier published this information.
Event: September 15, 1998, Cornell
University scientists confirmed particulate
composition of rings from Jupiter's moons (first
theorized by astronomers on August 2, 1995).
Meier's information is 20 years ahead of
Cornell's. (While scientists believe that the
source of the particulate matter is explosions
caused by meteorite strikes on the moons'
surfaces, Meier's information seems more accurate,
i.e., that matter being propelled from volcanoes
at speeds up to 2,300 km/hour to heights of 180 km
is more likely the true source of most
According to Mr. Horn's website: theyfly.com, Meier's
contacts also predicted:
massacre (Nov 18, 1978)
Overthrow of the Shah
of Iran (Jan 1979)
Chinese invasion of North
Vietnam (Feb-Mar 1979)
Iran Hostage Crisis
(Nov 1979-Jan 1981)
Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan (Dec 1979)
Terrorist attack on
Iranian Embassy, London (Apr-May 1980)
Abdication of Queen Juliana of The Netherlands
Death of Tito of Yugoslavia (May
Mount St Helens eruption (May 18,
Assassination of Indian Prime Minister
Indira Gandhi (Oct 31, 1984).
These predictions are just as startling as his
UFO films and photographs. If extraterrestrial
visitors actually gave these predictions to Mr.
Meier, then they do have information that is
invaluable to all humans (or are they staging the
All in all, it was an amazing evening. I was
entertained, asked and had answers to several
questions of personal interest and learned far
more about Mr. Meier that I could have imagined.
There was definitely more to this Swiss than
pendulums and fake UFOs. Mr. Horn for his part
gave an informative lecture and presentation and I
can only guess that those who entered the hall
with an open mind truly learned more about UFOs
and extraterrestrials than they had

The story of Billy Meier is so intriguing that
I would like to travel to Switzerland and meet
him. I understand that he is sixty-nine years old
so I can only hope that he continues to have a
long and healthy life. Remember that question I
wanted to ask Michael Horn about Erich von
Well I forgot to ask it. Maybe next
