The New Skeptical Challenge

To: Derek Bartholomaus, Stephen Bassett, David Biedney, Russel Callaghan, Clifford Clift, CSETI, Mark Easter, Bernard Haisch, Jean-Louis , Leslie Kean, Phil Langdon, Chris Markham, Edgar Mitchell, Steven Novella, Phil Plait, JREF, Jeff Rense, Stuart Robbins, Michael Shermer, Seth Shostak, Gene Steinberg, Susan Swiatek, Neil deGrasse Tyson, James Underdown...and all others concerned,

As the old saying goes, you're probably wondering why I've gathered you all together. The reason is that each of you is apparently convinced that the Billy Meier UFO case is a hoax. So I am creating the opportunity to focus all of your critical thinking abilities on the same task, i.e. addressing very specific, decade's old evidence in the Meier case that has never been thoroughly, openly examined before.

This will be new information for most of you, although it's actually the foundational evidence for Meier's authenticity. So your ability to poke real, substantiated holes in it would go a long way to proving your positions to be the correct ones. For those of you who are just now becoming aware of this specific information, the target of this discussion, you will find it here.

To be clear, this isn't about anything you've previously done, or written about, pertaining to the Meier case. It's solely focused on this 1964 India information and evidence. I ask that you approach this in a scientific and objective manner, no matter what your opinion has been up until now. Of course, since the unique historical documentation is so specific, equally precise, substantiated and credible documentation to support an opposing view is required. That means no theories, accusations, etc. Just facts, please, the kind that determine conclusions.

While some of you may find yourselves among strange bedfellows, I'm encouraging you to collaborate, cooperate and pool the best of your critical thinking abilities in examining this information. I will be publishing your results and responses, as well as putting out a press release about all of this. In fact, the recent press release about this subject is at the top of the most widely read and circulated ones I've published. Certainly, your own opinions will be at least as interesting to our ever growing global audience and the publcity will bring more attention to your own work.

I will also duly note any non responses, which speak even more loudly of course. And, as you can see, I have also already published this invitation on my own website. So perhaps you may also be approached with offers of help by other skeptics. Certainly, with your help, we are about to have a very thought provoking discussion. Since this is the holiday season, I anticipate publishing all of your findings and responses in early January.

Best of luck,

"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."

Here is just a sample of what the media is saying about Michael Horn:

Even nationally syndicated conservative talk radio host Michael Medved had to admit “… Look, I’m intrigued by this because, again, some seemingly very bright people seem to believe this. Michael, I appreciate your spirit of openness and sharing all of this with us and your willingness to bring us all up to date on the Billy Meier controversy involving flying saucers and extraterrestrials.”
- Michael Medved - National talk radio host

"Thanks very much! Our audience loves this topic."
- Alan Colmes Show - Fox News

“Michael Horn has appeared on Kevin Smith Show several times, and he is always a fascinating guest with a powerful command of his information. He does not demand that others believe his information, but very politely presses them to know his information and investigate it. One thing he does that makes his appearances stand out is that he provides a lot of corroborating evidence from other sources. It is always a pleasure to have Michael Horn on the Kevin Smith Show.”
- Kevin Smith, Host – Kevin Smith Show

“… And that is without a doubt the best show that I think I’ve ever done on the Meier case. Actually, I didn’t do it, I just hosted it. Michael Horn did it so he goes down as the best spokesman for Meier that I’ve ever had on.”
- Art Bell - Coast to Coast AM (after interviewing Michael for four hours)
500+ Radio Stations 5 million + Listeners - the largest late night talk show in the world

"You're a fantastic guest!"
- Ian Punnett - Coast to Coast AM (after interviewing Michael for three hours)

And, typical of the effect that Michael is making nationwide, mainstream talk radio host Karen Grant summed it up perfectly “Michael is a phenomenal guest. Whether you are a skeptic or not, he brings information that is fascinating and keeps the audience glued to their radios. The responses I receive after he has been on my show have been overwhelming. The one guest you want to have when it comes to the Meier case and contacts in general.”
- Karen Grant - National talk radio host

"Michael Horn, always a fascinating guest when he appears on Coast to Coast."
- George Noory - Talk radio host

"Thanks again for doing my show a few weeks ago. I rarely get email from listeners but I did get a few that really enjoyed hearing you and wanted your website info."
- Arielle Ford - Talk radio host, leading publicist

Regarding Michael's presentation of the scientific proof for the Billy Meier UFO contacts, and the prophetic material (documented and published by Billy Meier in 1975, 1987 and 1995) that specifically gave advance warning of the destruction of the WTC, the upcoming attacks by the USA and the president, and other events unfolding right now...legendary, conservative talk show host Barry Farber said:

"... I didn't dream I could ever enjoy a discussion of this nature, but Michael, you amaze me. It's supremely enjoyable...If you can prove one of them...then you're gonna change the world. I'm sitting here as a fascinated listener and talk host having a good hour. But if you can prove that anything [like that] came down...then I'm telling you pal, you're wasting time on the Barry Farber Show. You can change the world... It was a delight! You handle skepticism well and kept things going briskly. I've already put your material in the "volcano" file" meaning hot guests who are welcome repeatedly on the show."
- Barry Farber - Talk radio host

"You were great! You are very articulate and knowledgeable. I thoroughly enjoyed our chat and I hope you did, too. Would you like to come back on in the future? I appreciate you coming on and you were such a gentleman and very charitable about the questions. Thank you so much."
- Gianni De Vincent Hayes - Christian talk radio host
