Hello !

On behalf of Luc Buergin, Switzerland, and in cooperation with
Germany's UFO magazine, the "UFO-KURIER", we would like to present
something which  might be of interest.

*********************************************************************

                      *Another One Bites The Dust*

                        *Billy Meier: The end!*

The Swiss ufo contactee Billy Meier is exposed definitely as swindler.
This is the conclusion of an American TV-Special which was produced
under participation of the Meier critic Kal Korff . The program shall
be broadcasted worldwide in July 1998.

Korff had traveled to Switzerland in March of this year where he
interviewed  Billy's ex-wife Kalliope together with the Swiss ufo
researcher and non-fiction book author Luc Buergin. The basis for this
were Kalliopes statements in the German "UFO-KURIER" of April of last
year (which was translated by Joachim Koch and presented here). There
she had exposed to Buergin the contactee stories of her ex-husband as
" lies and deception peeks ". Kalliope Meier: "The FIGU obviously has
cult-like characteristics. I would like to advise all members to judge
Billy's statements critically and not simply to believe him blindly".

The highlight of the TV program are excerpts from the legendary Dean
Martin show which in the seventies shall have served Billy as the
model for his fake photos. Buergin: "Korffs team shows, that  'Asket'
- an extraterrestrial allegedly photographed by Meier - is in truth
the singer of an American dance formation. Obviously Billy took a
photograph of the questionable scenes from the TV screen".

On the occasion of Korff's visit to Europe, Buergin has got to know
Korff as a really relevant researcher. Says the  Swiss: "Korff isn't a
sceptic in the classic sense as what he is accused occasionally. It is
not his intention to explain away all ufos. He rather wants to divide
the truth from the falseness. He contributes with that to the serious
investigation of the phenomenon".

In March of this year Korffs appearance in the Art-bell-Show caused
excitement among Meier's supporters where he was in a debate with
Meier-fan Jim Dilettoso. At this he managed to wring the confession
from Dilettoso to have peddled with a wrong doctorate for years.

Buergin, too, had to cope already with heavy critics for his
researches by Meier's supporters. Why does he work together with
Korff? "One cannot explain away the existence of the ufo phenomenon. I
personally favor the extraterrestrial hypothesis for some sightings.
Unfortunately, definite proofs of this acceptance are missing yet.
Therefore it is most important to throw a spanner into the works of so
unscrupulous swindlers like Meier. Only in such a way we can get the
science to deal with the ufo phenomenon seriously", says Buergin.

    *Excerpts from the interview between Kal Korff/Luc Buergin*
    *and Kalliope Meier in Turbenthal, Switzerland (March 1998)*


Kal Korff/Luc Buergin: In your opinion, is the FIGU a sect?

Kalliope Meier: After all I have seen, --near the end, before I went
away -- I would I say: Yes. My experiences are very mixed. There is a
kind of hierarchy. One must go along with that. Otherwise one is
excluded.

Korff/Buergin: May Billy be doubted about within the FIGU?

Meier: Billy isn't criticized in the center. Billy is the best there.
This also will remain so. For people there, probably this is all
right. You live there. But they should not adore him as an idol and
not admire him as God either.

Korff/Buergin: Are you religious?

Meier: I have  grown up strictly religiously. Greek orthodox. I partly
have lived in the cloister. I am atheist today. I am a free human.But
I accept everybody  who has a religion. Everybody shall believe if he
finds this good. I want to change nobody. Everybody is responsible for
himself.

Korff/Buergin: You live in Turbenthal today. You feel better than
before?

Meier: I have to be content. When I went away I felt  very bad. I had
lost the floor under the feet, lost reality. I have tried to organize
my life newly. I had to say to myself: I must begin a new life after
30 years. Today, I really feel good. I am content. I have somehow
found the way ...
