UFOs, Extraterrestrials and Prophecies
The Controversy of Billy Meier
by Dirk Vander Ploeg
Prediction: Meier described existence of Jupiter's rings, saying:
1. They are composed mainly of dust, particles, sulphur ions flung off by volcanoes on Io;
2. Described Io as the most volcanically active body in the solar system, and smooth, level-surfaced with no water; described Europa as ice-encrusted;
3. Jupiter said to have 17 "actual" moons;
4. Described nature of Jupiter's huge funnel-shaped storm.
Event: March 5, 1979, NASA's Voyager 1 probe discovered the rings of Jupiter, that Io is the most volcanically active body in the solar system and that Europa is covered in ice-five months after Meier published this information.
Event: September 15, 1998, Cornell University scientists confirmed particulate composition of rings from Jupiter's moons (first theorized by astronomers on August 2, 1995). Meier's information is 20 years ahead of Cornell's. (While scientists believe that the source of the particulate matter is explosions caused by meteorite strikes on the moons' surfaces, Meier's information seems more accurate, i.e., that matter being propelled from volcanoes at speeds up to 2,300 km/hour to heights of 180 km is more likely the true source of most particulate-forming rings.)
According to Mr. Horn's website: theyfly.com, Meier's contacts also predicted:
Jonestown massacre (Nov 18, 1978)
Overthrow of the Shah of Iran (Jan 1979)
Chinese invasion of North Vietnam (Feb-Mar 1979)
Iran Hostage Crisis (Nov 1979-Jan 1981)
Soviet invasion of Afghanistan (Dec 1979)
Terrorist attack on Iranian Embassy, London (Apr-May 1980)
Abdication of Queen Juliana of The Netherlands (Apr 1980)
Death of Tito of Yugoslavia (May 4, 1980)
Mount St Helens eruption (May 18, 1980)
Assassination of Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi (Oct 31, 1984).
These predictions are just as startling as his UFO films and photographs. If extraterrestrial visitors actually gave these predictions to Mr. Meier, then they do have information that is invaluable to all humans (or are they staging the events?).
All in all, it was an amazing evening. I was entertained, asked and had answers to several questions of personal interest and learned far more about Mr. Meier that I could have imagined. There was definitely more to this Swiss than pendulums and fake UFOs. Mr. Horn for his part gave an informative lecture and presentation and I can only guess that those who entered the hall with an open mind truly learned more about UFOs and extraterrestrials than they had anticipated.
The lecture was sponsored by the FIGU Canadian Study Group, P.O. Box 703 Station P, Toronto, Ontario Canada M5S 2Y4.
The story of Billy Meier is so intriguing that I would like to travel to Switzerland and meet him. I understand that he is sixty-nine years old so I can only hope that he continues to have a long and healthy life. Remember that question I wanted to ask Michael Horn about Erich von Daniken?
Well I forgot to ask it. Maybe next time.
