This week I spoke with Derek Bartholomaus about the Billy Meier UFO contact case. I had asked him how he had gotten drawn into this and it came about through his day job. He became interested in the photographic evidence and tried to obtain the negatives for examination. Yeah, that does sound like an imposition on Meier. Why would he turn over the original negatives for examination? You can listen to the reasons for that and the rest of the interview here:
We focused the discussion on the photographic evidence that had been offered to prove that Meier had been contacted by an alien species. One of the photographs, of two of these aliens, have been identified as dancers from the old Dean Martin Show. Although it was originally claimed that picture had been taken by Meier, it is now suggested that the MIB or the CIA somehow intercepted or replaced that picture, as well as many others, with fakes, to discredit Meier. You can read more about this at Bartholomaus’ website here:
and on this blog here:
This interview, was, of course, from the perspective of a skeptic of the Meier claims. He hasn’t been involved for a while. He gives, what seems to be, solid reasons for his skepticism and frankly, the arguments do make sense. But, of course, there is another side to all this and we’ll explore that in the weeks to come.
