The Strange Case of the Billy Meier UFO Photos and ET Contact Story
Jim Marrs does a good job of going over the Billy Meier case in his book "Alien Agenda", and spends several pages going over the story. Somewhat annoyingly, Richard Dolan completely ignores the case in his UFO history books. This case is one of those freaky stories where nothing quite adds up. Billy Meier, a very interesting character, took some of the most stunning yet fake-looking UFO shots ever presented to the world, yet it's just not clear how he possibly could have faked these so well. Particularly, since he only had one arm.
Translated from the German at this site where I took the pics from:
Although often referred to as a forgery, Billy Meier's photos are used all over the world press and television to illustrate reports of UFOs. It is significant that Meier's copyright is violated regularly and he has received in all the past years, only three cases in about a couple of 'Fränklein' in royalties.Meier claims he was contacted by Pleiadians, who gave him all sorts of cosmically important information. Marrs spells it out well in "Alien Agenda", and I'm not going to transcribe what he wrote as it is too long. The bottom line is that I tend to believe Meier was a bona fide ET contactee and a very important person in the ET field. The only other explanation is that Meier was part of an INCREDIBLY elaborate hoax, but for what end, is not clear at all.
'Billy' Eduard Albert Meier's photos are different from all other known UFO cases by:
their outstanding picture quality
their large number (hundreds of pictures, mostly daylight shots)
the fact that virtually all images are part of all sequences
the fact that on several images over a 'UFO' shows
the presence of parallel made 8mm film footage
additional shots of landing tracks and laser fire traces
The fact that the recordings are total of all incurred before the possibility of computer manipulation was given.
