In this case, he implied that the various Billy Meier beamship photos that became X-file posters stamped I Want To Believe had been hoaxes of some kind. Gaining an understanding of what's real and what's not can require honest and comprehensive investigation by initially unbiased investigators. This is just what the Meier case has received over the past 35 years from Wendelle Stevens, Lee and Brit Elders, Guido Moosbrugger, Gary Kinder, Michael Hesemann, Jaime Maussan and Michael Horn. They found no way the case could be a hoax. However, those who want to believe the pro-hoax conclusions of Kal Korff are free to do so. But I would urge they look into the history of the Billy Meier debunkings starting in 1977; ebk permitting, see: http://www.tjresearch.info/Review_Clark.htm where one will find that the reason for debunking was often of the nature 'too good to be true', or too incredible relative to 20th-century science, or too unique and different, or too politically incorrect. Billy Cox's feelings appear to lie in the latter category... Jim Deardorff Listen to 'Strange Days...
