I’ve noted from the Live FeedJit Stats on this blog, that many visitors from the USA are landing on this article. I’m most grateful for the increased traffic this article has generated, but I’m not quite sure if my visitors are getting the message that this whole business is a SCAM. The so-called, “Planet Balqui” photographs, which Ken Adachi, and Don Nicoloff from BBS Radio claimed were taken on another planet, were stolen from photo-sharing sites on the internet.
When I originally posted the article (see below), I took on Ken Adachi’s open challenge when he stated, “I challenge anyone to designate the location of the volcano seen in one photo, or the location of the mountainside community in the first photo. For that matter, the locations of any of these beautiful photos.” He also makes reference to an unusual species of tree, not seen on earth.
About two weeks after I published this post, a visitor to this blog (see comments to this post) exposed the “Planet Balqui” scam, and also provided the direct links to the photo-sharing sites, proving that all the photographs were taken here on planet earth.
I immediately contacted Ken Adachi, Don Nicoloff, and also the people at BBS Radio, requesting an explanation for this. It’s been more than a month now, and I’m still waiting for a response from them. Meanwhile, --- they have continued selling the scam, using Jesus Christ’s name, mixed with typical “New Age” doctrines. Be careful!!!!!!!! This is not mere entertainment, --- in fact, it’s not even amusing at all!
Here are the links to the actual sources of the “Planet Balqui” photographs:

This is the amazing photograph of the alien tree. It was photographed in Poland here on our very own beautiful planet earth.

Southern Hemisphere Balqui?
No, --- in actual fact this is Nicaragua, planet earth!
This is Russia, Middle Ural, Chusovaya river, --- planet earth!
My original post (24 July 2009).....
This story is way out of Africa!
In fact this story originates about 41842.9 kilometers (26.000 miles) above Africa from somewhere in outer space.
Many months ago I bookmarked a site called educate-yourself.org and as the months went by I would occasionally pop in to browse some of the articles published there. The articles covered a wide range of controversial and interesting topics, some of which take some time to explore and to absorb, --- hence my reason for book-marking the site.
This week, after a long absence from my computer, I decided to catch up on some reading and landed on an article concerning extraterrestrial contact, which I found by clicking on the “Current News” section of the educate-yourself web site. I’m one of the many souls on this planet who, apart from a belief in a Higher Entity and/or Creator of the Universe, don’t easily fall for anything that my eyes cannot confirm. I’m also quite aware of the fact that there is a lot of bull-dust, smoke, and rotten filth, floating around on the Internet and that one must keep an open mind when viewing the stuff.
Although there have been many weird stories about ET’s, this specific story about extraterrestrial contact is a reasonably fresh one, and apparently occurred on 29 May 2009, during Don Nicoloff's radio show, “Evident Footprints” on BBS Radio, a live Internet Talk Radio Network based in California, USA – where else? I am not exactly sure what BBS stands for, but in the descriptive language of Afrikaans I believe that an appropriate name world be, “Blerrie Baie Strond”. English readers can figure out that one all by themselves – sorry I don’t run a translation service on this blog!
The story is basically as follows:
While Don Nicoloff was interviewing Jim Murray, a researcher, inventor, and scientist, --- a caller who introduced himself as General Jeremiah suddenly appeared on the radio waves. The call came in near the end of the show and the show was apparently extended to accommodate the sudden appearance of this bizarre intrusion. The so-called General, who spoke in a perfect Southern American accent, informed listeners that he was from the United Galactic Federation and that he was calling from a large spacecraft called the Alliance, located 26,000 miles above earth. Yes, I know this sounds totally unbelievable, but read on….
Evidently it was not the first time that Don Nicoloff had been in communication with General Jeremiah, but it is the first time that the General had ever gone public by formally introducing himself on the air and talking about the United Galactic Federation, explaining that their members come from a federation of 574 planets. He said the Federation was overseen by a group of wise men, 21 elders, who typically lived a life span of more than 500 years. The General said that his group began to visit earth on a regular basis about 33 years ago (ca. 1976).
It also came to light that this so-called General was not of extraterrestrial origin, but was born right here on planet earth. During the subsequent interview he mentioned that he was able to speak several languages and that he had access to highly advanced technology and sophisticated communication devices that were beyond description. He claimed that they “The Alliance” had the most highly advanced intelligence network in the galaxy and that they have been monitoring the governments on earth for some time.
He also mentioned that he was able to establish that approximately 2 million people were listening to the radio show at that very moment; ---- This included about 10,000 listeners who were residing on the “Alliance” spacecraft at the time. He also explained during his call, that the other members of the crew and the members of the United Galactic Federation's 574 planets are also humans, just like you and I.
The entire mp3 audio file of this wacky interview can be downloaded from the direct link at the end of this posting. In my opinion the entire show was designed to promote Don Nicoloff’s radio show, and to create the impression that his show was attracting a very large audience from various countries. In my opinion, it’s all a load of nonsense, a very clever hoax, -- but go-ahead, listen to the interview and decide for yourself!
A WORD OF WARNING!
If you’re a Christian who believes in the gospel of Jesus Christ I caution you to be open-minded when listening to the interview. On second thought, --- maybe you shouldn’t even bother downloading the 28.4MB file at all! The interview is conducted in a civilized manner and many refined references concerning Jesus and The Messiah are made by the commentators. The notion that Jesus made His appearance on 574 planets in our galaxy is strongly promoted by the man called “General Jeremiah”. He also states that we (on planet earth) crucified Jesus. His reference and manner of speech implies that we, the people living on this planet, should feel guilty about this. It’s a load of crap --- BEWARE! There are also “unsubstantiated” references to the fact that vast numbers of human beings have already populated the Moon and Mars. This bit of info almost had me switching off my media player, but my curiosity urged me to continue listening. There’s plenty of talk about love, respect, peace, and other stuff that may appeal to the average God-fearing individual, --- but don’t be fooled by all that! Also, --- the voice of the man who calls himself General Jeremiah sounds a bit authoritarian, i.o.w. – a typical government and/or military official, which makes me wonder who exactly is behind this hoax?
If this was meant to be entertaining then I’m afraid that the use of the name Jesus – The Messiah is in bad taste!
THE PLANET BALQUI PHOTOGRAPHS
The planet Balqui photos are the sole reason why I’ve decided to publish this story on this blog.
It is alleged that a couple of days after the radio show call-in, General Jeremiah sent Don Nicoloff a number of photographs that show outdoor scenes from a planet called Balqui. The photo album on Don Nicoloff’s web site displays a total of 26 photographs. I have displayed only 4 photos here that appear somewhat extraordinary.
Ken Adachi, the editor of the educate-yourself.org web site, admits that the scenery appears very similar to what we might see on earth. He also claims that there is something surreal and sacred in the topography of these photographs, but in my opinion the photographs are not as fantastic as he proclaims them to be. There are numerous locations on planet earth with similar topography and there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever in these pictures to prove that the photos were taken on another earth-like planet somewhere in our galaxy.
With a bit of Photoshop beautification any photograph can be transformed into something surreal. Ken Adachi has proclaimed an open challenge to anyone who can disprove the validity of these photographs, but the man makes no attempt whatsoever to provide the originals, --- nor does he make it easy for anyone to contact him. He states, “I challenge anyone to designate the location of the volcano seen in one photo, or the location of the mountainside community in the first photo. For that matter, the locations of any of these beautiful photos.” He also makes reference to an unusual species of tree, not seen on earth.
Well my dear viewers, I don’t know how you feel about this, but I’m always ready for a challenge – no matter how imbalanced it may seem at this point in time! Follow the direct link to these photos at the end of this posting. After you’ve viewed and analyzed the pics please come back here to leave your comments.
I have already identified a couple of flaws in some of the photographs but these flaws are not enough to disprove the wild claims made by Ken Adachi. The only way to disprove the fact that these photos were taken on another earth-like planet is to find the exact same location on planet earth. When you view the pics please bear in mind that the people living on the hypothetical planet of Balqui are supposed to be highly advanced beings who use anti-gravity cars that fly.
A FEW POINTERS THAT MAY INDICATE POSSIBLE FRAUD:
The various photographs are in an assortment of different pixel sizes and some are framed, which already tells me that they were manipulated by graphics software.
Several photographs depict typical “commercial” man-made pine forests. Why would a highly advanced society need wood or the byproduct paper? Other photographs depict a poisonous plant that resembles Digitalis purpurea ‘Foxy’ – a plant that only flowers in summer. There are also a few aerial photographs of farming land which, when enlarged, clearly show dirt roads and divided plots of land that one would typically find in many rural communities on planet earth, and not in a highly advanced society.
I repeat --- The only way to disprove the claim that these photos were taken on another earth-like planet somewhere in outer space, is to pinpoint the exact same location on planet earth. If this is a scam, let’s expose the truth and start searching!
