The Pteranodano and Billy Meier

Because it isn’t time for the premiere of Game of Thrones Season 7, and I have nothing better to do, I thought I’d kick another sleeping dog (sorry of that analogy offends). For laughs, I took a look at the Pteranodano photograph that was allegedly taken by Billy Meier during a July 1975 trip to a world some 9.38 billion light years away which is about halfway across the known universe. It’s a badly focused picture with little real detail that is actually somewhat reminiscent of those first photographs taken in the early 19th century but you can recognize the flying dinosaur.
Billy Meier

This photograph wasn’t published in any of Meier’s books as near as I can tell, but was shown around the United States as part of a program about Meier’s space and time travels. I wanted to find a way to connect it to Meier as the photographer because some of what I had seen didn’t provide any real source. I did find a connection at:


In the course of the presentation, it was said that Meier had taken the picture, as he had those of other dinosaurs. We were even treated to a picture of Meier in a spacesuit walking about on another planet, outside the spacecraft so that he could get the pictures (which has been identified as a picture from a science fiction movie).

Karumudi Mahesh Chowdary tells me the video showing two people flipping through an album containing Meier's space and time travel photographs are Wendelle Stevens (flipping the album) and Randolph Winters (holding camcorder) in 1989. Winters and Wendelle are just flipping through Meier’s album taking pictures of the pictures Meier had taken. But as I say this established a link between Meier and the picture of the Pteranodano.

Note that the alleged trip was in July 1975. That date is important because various researchers and interested parties found a much clearer illustration of that particular dinosaur in a book about dinosaurs. The illustration was apparently painted in 1960 and appeared in a book published in 1972, or some three years before Meier took the picture. This would seem to prove, in at least one case, Meier had attempted to pass off a poor photograph of a painting by an Earth-based artist as a real photograph of a dinosaur. You can see the photographs at:


The dinosaur pictures, both the painting and the alleged photograph (yes, I know it is a real photograph but it is a photograph of a painting) can be found beginning at 6:31 in this video.

Well, not so fast say the champions of Meier’s claims. This has all been explained though not as clearly as I would like. It might be that the translation I was reading wasn’t as good as it could have been so we can overlook some of the technical problems. I found my way to:


That provided another look at the illustration and the photograph that didn’t add much information to what I had already learned. However, there was a button at the bottom of the page that took me to:


Here we learn that Meier didn’t take the photograph, but it was in with those that he had taken. Now the story becomes a little more complicated, but I think I have sorted it out. We are told, “In their blindness and their investigative delusion, BEAM’s [BEAM being Meier’s initials or in other words, it is Meier] opponents stubbornly and firmly maintain that the aforementioned photo was personally taken by ‘Billy’ on the space journey in July of 1975, without concerning themselves, however, with the true history of its origin and the actual contexts of the picture.”

Well, we did see a video of that claim being made. That the picture had been taken by Meier, so those who are suggesting it have a good case. But, again, there is another twist here. “After the freshly developed dinosaur pictures were in the hands of ‘Billy,’ these were seen and inspected by Quetzal [Quetzal was Commander of all Plejaren stations in our solar system]. During this, dozens of pictures were noted by him, which quite clearly could not have come from the world NEBER [the planet Meier visited in July 1975] and, therefore, had not been taken by ‘Billy,’ about which Quetzal got very angry. It was obvious that false and manipulated pictures had been foisted on BEAM once more by a foreign hand. Many of the pictures had obviously been photographed from a book and were to have been smuggled into BEAM’s photo collection as so-called cuckoo’s eggs.”

So Meier had them in a photo album that itself was photographed by Horn and Stevens. While that doesn’t seem to match with the later tale, we learn, “Before the original photos were removed and destroyed by Quetzal, however, the foundation member of FIGU, Guido Moosbrugger, came into the possession of some copies. However, he had to make the promise to the Plejaren and ‘Billy,’ never to make the copies available to the public or to get rid of these in any way because the falsification from a foreign hand was also among the preserved photos. Should he fail to comply with the instruction, the pictures would have to be immediately confiscated and destroyed by the Plejaren, as this also happened with the originals of ‘Billy.’ To this day, Guido Moosbrugger feels bound to his promise and has always kept the pictures under wraps.”

But, of course, he didn’t because somehow the picture was released, even if only on a poor-quality video made of the pictures in Meier’s photo album. But that still doesn’t actually explain where they originated. The excuse:

The Plejaren’s investigations into this incident yielded the following: Since the “Men in Black” organization, which committed itself to “Billy,” couldn’t eliminate him after several failed assassination attempts (ultimately 21 of these overall), it very strongly forced individuals who were cooperating with “Billy,” like the aforementioned photographer Schmid, to bring BEAM into discredit. So they meticulously planned their intrigues and defamation for the long run; consequently, the effects of their machinations should have first begun to work themselves out in the near future. Several times, the “Men in Black” also tried to achieve their goal at the Semjase Silver Star Center with attacks on the vehicles of the members or by intimidations and kidnapping attempts of the children, etc. In this form, also the photographer Schmid, whom “Billy” had incorporated with the permission of the Pleiadians/Plejaren, was forced by the "Men in Black" to produce falsifications of the photographs. On several occasions, pictures that Schmid had received from “Billy” were falsified from the ground up or replaced by forgeries, as this also happened with the Asket and Nera photos and with the aforementioned dinosaur photo. In this way, Eduard A. Meier, already at the beginning of his contacts with the Pleiadians/Plejaren, received false slides, negatives or manipulated photos back from Schmid unnoticed. This photographer has passed away in the meantime and, therefore, is no longer able to provide any information at all on these machinations. [Isn’t that convenient?]
Ironically, it seems that:

The fact is that the opponents of “Billy” never concerned themselves in an honest form with the true origin of the purported dinosaur pictures and did not investigate the actual source. Otherwise, they would have discovered that the purported pictures were not put into circulation by FIGU or “Billy” Meier but by a malevolent, foreign hand [Michael Horn and Wendelle Stevens?], with the intent to harm him. Many allegedly notable UFO researchers and self-proclaimed Meier experts, in their investigative delusion, have jumped on the train of falsification and prevarication, without examining the true sources. This practice can be found on the Internet in innumerable articles about BEAM. Nevertheless, the actual truth about the photo will one day let so many ufologists leap over the shadow of embarrassing disgrace. In actual fact, no sound evidence exists, which proves that the aforementioned photo was taken by “Billy” Meier. With not a single word or written testimony has BEAM ever claimed this on his own, and indeed, because of the simple fact that the aforementioned picture of the pterosaur, along with many other forgeries, had not been taken by “Billy” Eduard Albert Meier himself but had been foisted on him by a foreign hand [though on the video, that claim is made]. These facts correspond to the truth, even if the truth doesn’t want to be accepted by his opposition – as is the case so often.
Finally, to explain all of this, we learn:

The truth about the so-called dinosaur photos will hardly be published by the notorious occupational critics because through the aforementioned photo, a certain inconsistency in the Meier UFO Case can actually be found – an inconsistency that certainly makes sense since the image does, in fact, concern a forgery. To the disappointment of all the glorious investigative specialists, the forgery was, however, not created by BEAM but rather by his opposition – completely in line with: BEAM’s Men in Black opponents hoodwink BEAM’s ufologist opponents. There, two drunks probably beat on each other’s fingers[whatever the hell that means]. But at least a good job must be granted to BEAM’s opponents, with regard to the discovery of this forgery. The book found to have been used for this is not a bad achievement and is also of good use for FIGU. As a critical, searching, and inquiring human being - even in the case of “Billy” Meier – I am fully aware of a certain sense of achievement in investigation. I must admit, however, that I much prefer to use my time and energy for an argumentation in favor of the true truth about BEAM than for superficial and blind faultfinding.
But that’s not all. According to Matt Knight in a comment to this blog, the copyright date on the book had been changed as just another way to discredit Meier. Knight wrote to my earlier post, “I've finally realized what Mahesh's [another of those posting a comment] problem is. He obviously has never experienced life in a culture where making backdated books to fool the public would be taken very seriously by authorities and would be a punishable crime if it were true [I’m not sure what crime this would be]. Switzerland is not the kind of country where anyone can make cheap knock-off T-shirts, passports, websites, or, blogs and claim they have real value.”

In case it wasn’t clear there, Horn added, “To follow up on Matt's correct assessment of Mahesh's problems in part stemming from lack of experience with a culture such as Switzerland, Mahesh fails to understand the mechanism of pre-digital book publishing, where it was common for books to take a year - or even years - to be published.”

So now we have a couple of excuses for way the fake picture was claimed to be one that Meier had taken. First, it wasn’t taken by him but slipped into a bunch of other pictures that he had taken as a way to discredit him. The Men in Black did it or maybe it was the CIA.

Now we learn that the book that held the actual illustration, had a faked copyright date on it. A backdated book to fool the public so that we can see the vast conspiracy out there attempting to discredit Meier.

Then Horn chimes in with the fact that books, back in the old days which, of course, was the last part of the 20th century, sometimes took months and even years to be published. This would be relevant if the book was copyrighted at the time of submission of the manuscript, but that’s not the way it worked. The copyright date was the month and year in which it was published.

What we are left with is evidence that Meier had taken a picture of a Pteranodon that was an illustration from a book published two years earlier. Caught with this problem, we learn that Meier hadn’t taken the picture but some unidentified organization whose mission it was to discredit Meier had taken the picture and slipped it in with all the others that Meier had taken on that day in July. It’s not completely clear how they might have done that, only that they had.

That picture, identified as a fake by Quetzal, and who demanded that it be destroyed, failed to get that done, and the next thing we know it is being circulated by Meier’s pals, Horn and Stevens, as the real thing. But when it is discovered that it was part of another, earlier book, we learn that this was not a picture taken by Meier but someone else. You just have to ask if any of this makes any sense at all.


These are the facts as presented about this picture. Is this alone enough to discredit Meier, or was it really some conspiracy cooked up by the Men in Black. I believe this does suggest something about the reliability of the Meier testimony. Others, I guess, will disagree.

@Kevin,

What amazes me is the 21 'assassination attempts'. This has to be a world record*. Hitler, the most hated man in the world in his day, survived ~25. Most people have never heard of Billy Meier. How does he rate 21?r

My BS detector is off the scale right now.

*Most assassination attempts on a 'nobody'.

"This lecture, I believe, is being given by Michael Horn."

The video showing two people flipping through an album containing Meier's space and time travel photographs are Wendelle Stevens (flipping the album) and Randolph Winters (holding camcorder) in 1989.

"The illustration was apparently painted in 1960 and appeared in a book published in 1972, or some three years before Meier took the picture. "

From my website which has more background and detailed:
http://www.billymeieruforesearch.com/photos-and-videos/outer-space-pictures-pteranodon/
"In fact the painting was made by Zdeněk Burian in 1960 and was first featured in a book ‘Prehistoric reptiles and birds’ published by a Czech paleontologist Josef Augusta in 1961."

In FIGU Special Bulletin 20 (2005), Meier and Plejaren ETs also claim that they identified a few genuine photos and published them in Contact Notes since 2002. As it turns out, we have investigated these photos and found almost all of them to be fakes ripped off from NASA animations, magazines, documentaries, etc. http://www.billymeieruforesearch.com/photos-and-videos

Off topic I know, but Fidel Castro is said to have survived over 500 such attempts, or so I read soon after his death (from natural causes) recently.

The second sentence of your op-ed is incorrect. You say that 9.38 billion light years is half way across the known universe, but in fact, half way across the known universe is an astounding 7,869 octillion light years. That is the half diameter of the solid state universe. https://billymeier.wordpress.com/2014/04/26/cr-143-seven-layers-of-the-universe/ The Swiss/Germans use a comma instead of a period, so I'm not exactly sure if they mean 7.869 or 7,869, but you are way off in any case.

That's a pretty big discrepancy or error in reporting, which is to be expected from people who have only scratched the surface of the case.

You also fail to mention the most important point about the false photographs:
The following response was given on February 3rd, 1998, during the 260th Contact:

Ptaah: …”Overall, as we’ve determined through detailed investigations, you had made 1,476 photos with your Olympus ECR 35 mm camera, as well as 34 films with your movie camera that you could use with just one hand. Of the photos, several hundred were stolen from you, and moreover, at least which we could clarify, 230 of these were falsified. There was also falsifying through the manipulation of several films, and to be sure, in the way that our aircraft were suddenly represented as though these had been suspended from thin strings or wires, etc., and so, the impression was made that these were models….”

Good luck debating Michael Horn. I hope he doesn't embarrass you as much as he did Stanton Friedman.

Finally, if you rely on Mahesh for information, you should know that he was spoken of in Contact Report 666. You may want to read that contact report.

Dougall -

Excuse me if I don't accept your source as valid and retreat to the more mundane science, which I'm sure you'll warn us about doing. I was suggesting the distance from Earth in the observable universe, which is different from the known universe. The figures I have seen suggest the known universe is something like 93 billion light years. My figure was based on estimates made a few years ago which are now considered by many astronomers to be in error. They, however, do not represent anything near the figure you quote, and I find your source to be wanting in credibility. That is both Billy Meier and Ptaah.

But remember, 230 photographs that were on-time alleged to have been taken by Billy Meier have been falsified... that should give you pause.

In regards to the Billy Meier story, a good starting point is to ask one simple question. If there were extra-terrestrials among us that sincerely wanted to help the human race, would using an obscure, unknown individual such as Billy Meirer be the means by which they would do it?

Of course, the simple and truthful answer is a resounding NO! Having a go-between to deliver the message/word who has no credentials, authority or following (which is still the case today) would make no sense for any intelligent form as this method would surely not work and they would know it in advance.

This can be proven 100% because it can be safely stated the overwhelming population on this planet has never heard of Billy Meirer and the majority of those that have, don't believe his story. Otherwise, he would have a current day following greater than Jesus Christ instead of a small group living in a compound with him in Switzerland.

Seriously, the entire premise is nonsensical and the supposed "proof" to back up the claims does not exist. However, whenever hard facts are used to debunk this hoax, even more inane claims are made to defend it, such as with the photos.

Unfortunately, homo sapiens have been hard wired to be gullible, naïve and often just plain stupid. Carlo Ponzi, Bernie Madoff and many others are proof of this and you can add the name Billy Meier to the list. He wasn't the first and unfortunately he won't be the last to make the infamous list of scammers. Just use a little common sense and logical thinking, although I know that is getting harder and harder to do is this world gone mad.

Wow, well IMHO Billy Meier is a complete fraud, but, boy, now I'm left hankering for my very own pet Pteranodano. Where can I go buy one? 8^}

Kevin,

You gotta lotta gall, questioning the pronouncements of Ptaah.

I hope he doesn't come after you.

.

@Dougall,
"...There was also falsifying through the manipulation of several films, and to be sure, in the way that our aircraft were suddenly represented as though these had been suspended from thin strings or wires, etc., and so, the impression was made that these were models…...."

LOL. You guys can always fall back on a career in stand up, or maybe SNL.

BTW, 'measurements' of the size of the Universe are always -estimates- based on current -theories-, not established facts.

You guys should at least -try- to present numbers that don't contradict the scientists. To do so enhances credibility.

That's something you really need to make your religion a success.

Not one single comment on how the heck do you alter publication dates and copyrights assigned, not to mention international book serial numbers. The facts are indisputable, unless you change the facts, which is why I post this comment. When trying this case in a court of law, the undeniable proof of who said what when, cannot be altered, this is why copyright dates and IBSN's are so critical. When your understanding of how things are is challenged, the logical mind will rely on efforts, through logic and reason, the exact opposite is true when dealing with people here who fail to accept that our entire world has been based on lies and deceptions since time immemorial, and if you find this statement hard to "believe" revert back to ANY gospel of religion. The truth does not require your "belief" in it in order to exist, the truth exists REGARDLESS of your "belief" in it. Belief is what the liars rely on for others too lazy to determine for themselves, what truth is.
