A Short Biography of Billy Meier
"Billy" Eduard Albert Meier was born on 3 February, 1937 in Bülach, Switzerland. He was the second of seven children. His father was a shoemaker.
Eduard Meier had his first "UFO" sighting - a very big silvery "disc" - on 2 June, 1942, together with his father. In the fall of 1942 he received his first telepathic contact by an extraterrestrial - a very strange experience for the young child. On November of the same year young Eduard had his first ride in a extraterrestrial spacecraft, together with a very old man, Sfath. He taught Eduard vast spiritual and material knowledge.
Starting 3 February, 1953, Asket. an extraterrestrial woman from the DAL Universe, took over from Sfath. For 11 years, under her guidance, Eduard made many long trips through Europe and Asia, in order to learn and study many abilities and professions, and to prepare himself for his future mission of being a prophet, mediator and teacher. By way of time travel they visited the past and even met and spoke with Jmmanuel, who lived two thousand years ago.
For another 11 years Eduard had to find his way without personal guidance from extraterrestrials.
On 3 August, 1965, in Iskenderun, Turkey, Eduard Meier lost his left arm in a car accident.
On 25 December, 1965, Eduard Meier met K.M. in Saloniki, Greece. Two months later they married. They traveled and lived in Turkey, Pakistan and India, to name but a few. On 9 September, 1967, their daughter Gilgamesha was born in Quetta. Later, after returning to Switzerland, two sons were born: Atlantis-Sokrates (9 August, 1970) and Methusalem (31 October, 1973).
Between January 1975 and summer 1996 Billy Meier had - besides a lot of unofficial - about 250 official (= with information for the public) contacts with Extraterrestrials Semjase, Ptaah, Quetzal, Asket, Nera, Taljda, Menara, Pleija, Florena and others. Most of those talks were written down and published in the Contact Notes (German only).
Where did Billy get his nickname?
On one of his long trips through the Orient, in Teheran, Iran, he got the nickname "Billy" from an American woman named Judy Reed. Eduard Meier, wearing a black hat and a gun belt, reminded her of "Billy the Kid", the "legendary gunman of the Wild West."
Clarification of a Defamatory Claim:
According to defamations by antagonists, "Billy" Eduard Albert Meier is allegedly claiming to be a direct reincarnation of Jesus Christ. - This defamation is nothing more than a primitive lie and despicable imputation!
