This time I reached out to Michael Horn even though he had initiated a campaign against me alleging cowardice, incompetence, a lack of investigative ability (my translation of his words), poor research and other shortcomings. I thought it would be interesting to ask some questions about the Meier claims of alien contact and what I saw as a lack of evidence other than all those photographs and testimony and a rather biased examination of alleged alien metal that has since disappeared. Naturally Horn disagreed with my assessment.
You can listen to the interview here:
And you can read Horn’s take on much of this here:
We started out talking about how Horn had become the “Authorized American Media Representative” for Meier, and then ran from there. I had asked Horn a couple of weeks ago about how one of the champions of the Meier claims had been
and instead received a link to a video with an interview of Jim Dilettoso by
Alejandro Rojos. Dilettoso has been cited as an expert in photo analysis, and I
wondered if Horn believed him to be a credible source… never got an answer to
However, we did begin a discussion of the photographic evidence and the lack of reputable examination of it. I have touched on the subject before, including a posting that follows this one. Rather than go into that, I’ll let those who are interested in following up on it, read that post.
Although we really didn’t quite finish that discussion, I wanted to move onto the predictions that Meier had made over the years. Horn brought up the ozone depletion example and then, to prove that Meier had predicted it long before any terrestrial scientist, mentioned a letter Meier had written in 1951. My response to that argument, briefly, was that no copy of the letter had surfaced until 2004 or 2005 so it wasn’t actually proof of accuracy. That argument is made in a post following this one as well.
Horn also brought up a newspaper article that had been written in 1964 that mentioned Meier’s 80 UFO photographs. Of course, the reporter had taken down what Meier had claimed, apparently saw some of the photographs but had done nothing to verify the accuracy of the information. I mentioned that I knew how some of those photographs had been created using an enlarger. Horn said that Meier, walking around India didn’t carry an enlarger in his backpack, which, of course is not what I said. I did mention that there must have been a photographer enlarger somewhere on the subcontinent, but I think my words just sailed right on by.

I doubt seriously that any minds were changed during the conversation. Horn laughed at explanations, called me names, and seemed to be annoyed by the questions. Though I hate to admit it, I have some fun.
Next week: Thomas Eddie Bullard
Topic: UFO abductions and his book, The Myth and Mysteries of UFOs.
PS: This will be the last posting about Billy Meier, Michael Horn, and all of this rather unpleasant episode.
