As promised earlier in this blog I am putting up something sent to me by a person who wishes to remain anonymous. If you have any good information about Kalvin Korff please send it to me firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm not a flying saucer person and find the subject good conversation but other than that its all nonsense and conjecture to me. I do understand what Kalvin Korff was claiming about the flying saucer picture.
As you might know about Kalvin Korff he really has it in for this Billy Meier chap. I've seen some of this Billy Meier flying saucer business and have to say it is completely unconvincing to me but there are some impressive looing photos. I am reading Kalvin Korff's book on this Switzerland flying saucer stuff and it has been a painful read!! Excruciatingly so!! Don't worry though, I didn't pay for the book otherwise I'd be getting a refund.
I received an email from someone including some Billie Meier flying saucer pictures and a description of the pictures. It looks as though Kalvin Korff has once again been CAUGHT MISREPRESENTING DATA and thus Kalvin would be MISLEADING CONSUMERS. This is what was sent to me.
"Just to show you how piss poor of an investigator Kal Korff is, here is a set of photos taken by Meier. This particular U.F.O. is known as the wedding cake. Kal Korff asserts that one photo shows a thumb tack that has fallen off the U.F.O. model. Come on, Meier's pictures are good, but it doesn't take a genius to figure out they're models."
"In this first photo, you can see the small, gold colored pieces sticking out around the middle section of balls. I've highlighted one area in the row of middle balls (big square)."
"Just below that highlighted section (smaller square), you can see a piece which appears to be laying on part of the model. Korff claims this piece is one of the small, gold colored pieces that has fallen off the model from the upper highlighted section where there is an empty space."
"I personally think the whole Meier case is a sham, a ruse. The point here is Korff claims to have a higher level of standards and investigative skills. As you might suspect, Korff demands nothing but the highest of evidence from everyone else but this standard doesn't apply to him. Korff has also stated that mistakes are inexcusable in conducting research."
"With that, how the hell did Korff miss what I'd call rather obvious, even to the layman U.F.O. investigator or casual observer. The second picture here shows the same spot Korff claims the piece fell from."
"But a simple comparison reveals the piece Korff says has fallen off the model is a ring, not a straight piece that is supposed to be a carpet tack. You can see a second ring highlighted as well in the lower right portion of the photo. The empty spot Korff states the piece fell from is clearly visible in other Meier wedding cake U.F.O. photos and obviously is empty by design."
"What Korff claims to be a piece that, unknown to Meier, has fallen off a model is actually that of the ring from a side view. Looking at the first photo I've sent, you can see the piece Korff says has fallen off actually has another dimension to it, which is the interior curve of the ring! Take a look at other Meier wedding cake U.F.O. photos and you'll see the area is empty in those photos, too. As Korff likes to say, "This is physics, folks.""
"I by no means am an investigator, I don't have a 200 IQ, I've never worked at Apple Computers or Lawrence Livermore National Labs, I've never been to Switzerland, nor have I written a book or been on CNN, so I'm quite unsure how Korff missed this and I did not. Rather embarrassing I'd say."
"And if you're interested, as you said you were reading Korff's book on Meier, you can go to this website and see the myriad of mistakes, a lot of amateur mistakes by the way, made by Korff: http://meiercase.0x2a.info/meiercase/001/article.php?id=40&sn=0 There is some rubbish in there about Meier's contacts and such, but apparently Korff couldn't even get some names or who was married to who straight. Korff, who claims to speak German and several other languages, couldn't even properly translate some of Meier's writings in the German language!"
