FX EXPERTS ON MEIER UFO FILM:
“PROBABLY EVEN IMPOSSIBLE TO FAKE”!
Deathblow to attacks by James Randi, Derek Barholomaus, David Biedney, Paul Kimball;frustrated skeptics threaten to sue!
LOS ANGELES, CA – Professional skeptics, who for years have been claiming that Swiss UFO contactee Billy Meier hoaxed his numerous clear, daylight UFO photos, films and video, received something that they weren’t expecting in their ongoing quest to debunk Meier. Instead of getting hoped for ammunition against Meier from special effects experts who had seen Meier’s films, they ended up with a stinging, professional rebuttal of their unproven theories.
Soon after having been forced to retract his own claims that Billy Meier hoaxed his UFO photos, films and video using model UFOs and model trees (see: http://theyfly.com/newsflash91/Top_Skeptic_Fixed.htm), skeptic Derek Bartholomaus, the lead investigator of the Meier case for CFI-West/IIG, contacted the owners of Uncharted Territory, the special effects company that won the Academy Award for Independence Day.
Bartholomaus, whose company had long referred to Meier’s UFO photos and films as “an easily duplicated hoax”, sought to convince Uncharted Territory to refute any statements attributed to them that could be construed as supporting the authenticity of Meier’s photographic evidence, as reported in the new film, The Silent Revolution of Truth (http://theyfly.com/products/products.htm#srot).
However, speaking also on behalf of his partner, Volker Engel, Marc Weigert made the following statement in his response to Bartholomaus, on January 30, 2008:
"But, to reflect on the statement that's in the film, I also remember seeing a shot on the Super8 reel that showed a UFO circling around a fairly tall tree. According to that shot, we said that we can't conclusively say whether it's real or not, but it seemed impossible to stage that kind of a shot with a miniature (it would have to be hanging on a very tall crane, with wires - but even then the movements would be hard to achieve.) So, yes, in regards to that shot, we mentioned that we could definitely do it today with CG, but at the time these were supposedly shot - it would have been very hard, probably even impossible, to fake this kind of shot." (See: http://www.theyfly.com/photos/photos.htm#movie)
Uncharted Territory’s expert opinion delivered the deathblow to virtually all challenges and claims by skeptics who have loudly accused Meier of hoaxing his “too good to be true” photographic and film evidence. The most recent case in point is that of amateur UFOlogist, aspiring filmmaker and very vocal Meier critic, Paul Kimball, who found even the thought of trying to reproduce Meier’s video
(http://www.steelmarkonline.com/media/Wedding_Cake_ship.mpg) of a stationary UFO so daunting that he declined to even attempt it, as he had been challenged to do.
Though admittedly possessing far less impressive credentials and qualifications than Uncharted Territory, Kimball’s filmmaking abilities and technology greatly exceed that of Meier’s, who took the majority of his films in the mid-1970s.
But as has been the case with virtually all other skeptics and debunkers (even so-called experts like David Biedney) when challenged to demonstrate and substantiate their theories, Kimball suddenly went mute.
Skeptics Had Threatened to Sue
When a new article (http://theyfly.com/newsflash91/Top_Skeptic_Fixed.htm) had been posted about Bartholomaus' desperate efforts inadvertently resulting in his authenticating a key Meier photo, and when a new DVD by Michael Horn was announced (http://theyfly.com/products/products.htm#mhmcu) that also included the new information from Uncharted Territory, Bartholomaus and CFI-West/IIG threatened to sue to prevent them from being made available. Such are the fears and agendas of those whose purpose it is to debunk the Meier case, at any price, rather than to examine it, objectively and scientifically, to determine the truth.
We Were Warned
For those who have let the years of groundless, often very mean spirited, accusations by the skeptics dissuade them from examining the Meier case, it is hoped that they now will do so and discover the truth for themselves. In doing so they will find that, more than just amazing (and still irreproducible) UFO photos, films, etc., the very keys to our future survival have been placed in the information, if we will only grasp and use them before it is too late. In light of the news of the day, such a warning is anything but hyperbolic, as this from the Henoch Prophecies (http://theyfly.com/prophecies/prophecies.htm), published in 1987 and on www.theyfly.com since 2002, should make clear:
"The USA will set out against the Eastern countries ahead of all other financial states and simultaneously she will have to defend herself against the Eastern intruders. In all, America will play the most decisive role, when in the guise to strive for peace and to fight against terrorism she invades many countries of the Earth, bombs and destroys everything and brings thousand-fold deaths to the populations. The military politics of the USA will likewise know no limits, as neither will their economic and other political institutions which will be focused on building and operating a world police force, as it is the case already for a long time. But that will not be enough, and, in the guise of a so-called peaceful globalization, American politics will aspire to gain absolute control of the world concerning supremacy in economy..."
"Far in the West, it will be different; the United States of America will be a country of total destruction. The cause for this will be manifold. With her global conflicts which are continuously instigated by her and which will continue far into the future, America is creating enormous hatred against her, worldwide, in many countries. As a result, America will experience enormous catastrophes, which will reach proportions barely imaginable to people of Earth. The destruction of the WTC, i.e., the World Trade Center, by terrorists will only be the beginning..."
And, while we must give a nod to the candid comments of some masters of “phantasmagoria” for helping to solidly refute the last of the skeptical arguments against Meier’s evidence, perhaps a perusal of this very comprehensive, and equally disturbing, excerpt from http://theyfly.com/lost/meier.prophecies.1958.htm is in order:
127.) And in the Third Millennium the time comes when big parts of the continents disappear and the people will have to flee to the mountains, yet their sense of the catastrophes will only be of short duration, because they will forget everything again quickly and therefore make an effort to do much rebuilding, because they are already creating phantasmagoria, through movies and television, as well as later through a worldwide netting of computers and electronics, through which they deceive themselves and see things that do not exist, and are only visually determined for the eye, subsequently their sense for reality disappears and they can no longer distinguish between reality and fiction, whereby they lose themselves more and more in the labyrinth of life, while those who produce phantasms commercially as well as religious and sectarian phantasms, have an easy game with the people of faith, who they deceive in every possible manner and make them into humble beings, like cringing dogs.
Once again the question must be asked, “Will we wake up and take responsibility…in time?”
