Some UFO Updates Listers may need to be reminded that one cannot
always believe what Billy Cox proclaims. 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...
