Did we inadvertently time-travel back to last fall? Melba Ketchum and gang once again give a press conference and reveal the findings of the Sasquatch Genome Project. They also reveal “for the first time” some photos of supposed Bigfoot…that we’ve already seen before. Ketchum says the genetic study of over 100 samples shows a unique human hybrid previously unknown, which is the same thing she said last year. There is nothing new here and her study has been debunked time and again. We believe that it is likely her study does actually contain real evidence of Sasquatch, but her samples were proven tainted and the results were published in a bogus journal. At this point, her best bet is to scrap the original study and start from scratch, because despite all the controversy we really do think her team is on the right track. But still, we wonder if the photo featured on this page is a sleeping Bigfoot, a shag carpet, or a dead horse…Scientific American says that Ketchum’s DNA study is so “deeply flawed” that it proves Bigfoot’s existence is Unlikely [but] Only If You Know What “Unlikely” Means.
Then again, Scientific American’s definition of unlikely apparently means “having too many reports of Bigfoot sightings” and not enough concrete evidence like bones or scat. It’s the skeptics’ best and most-used argument but it’s a tired one that’s been hashed and rehashed. There are problems on both sides of the issue here and the same dead horse is being beaten by two different sticks.
