DNA tests were performed by trusted and experienced lab assistant "Harry Henderson".

It wouldn't have to be a completely different species. It could be a variant; kind of like in dogs, lots different breeds, one species

Uhm, this peer-reviewed article was published in a journal that was newly created just to publish this one article, and has published zero other articles.

But hey, keep buying Melba's $26 "Save the Bigfeeties" t-shirts, chumps.

/plus the supposed findings are outright retarded right on their face.

She should have published in a journal devoted to psychology, sociology or climate science. They don't believe in attempting to reproduce experimental results there.

So, what you're saying is; peer-reviewed articles aren't always reliable?

How is the evidence of bigfoot going to risk some third party research lab?  Oh, wait, she's insane, nvrmd.

I saw this episode of Anciemt Aliens.


We have never found Bigfoot, therefore he must be an alien.  With a stargate hidden in the woods.


Really.

 
2013-07-05 05:06:49 PM
I don't like that he's keeping the lab that did the follow up a secret.  I'm just saying that as long as the naysayers stay shadowy, she gets to call it a conspiracy.

sharetv.org ...no, but did you know that Elvis sightings are up 323% in Hartford Ontario in the three weeks around this bigfoot sighting?

nerdymom61023.files.wordpress.com ...and...

img.filmfront.no And did you know that Hartford Ontario has the same population and racial makeup as Melba Ketchum's home town? Eerie isn't it, I wonder if it even exists.

nerdymom61023.files.wordpress.com What, the bigfoot that clearly doesn't exist? Elvis's new bachelor pad? Or the Melba Ketchum who made all this up?

sharetv.org We're telling you, it's up to you to believe us or not. They even have the same bronze dome on their town halls. Here I'll show you a picture.

If I ever see a bigfoot(or would that be big feet since Im pretty sure it has 2 feet) I ain't claiming it unless I like have a body to bring in.

LeroyBourne: How is the evidence of bigfoot going to risk some third party research lab?  Oh, wait, she's insane, nvrmd.


Actually, it would effect many things. If we discovered the bigfeet were real; it would probably come with the assumption that the bigfeet are endangered. The bigfeet would need protection status; like bald eagles or deer. The department of agriculture would have to spend millions studying the mating habits of the bigfeet; so they wouldn't go extinct.

/ plus, it would make it impossible to use the federal land the bigfeet inhabit for oil production

// not saying that they exist; I'm just saying that the government would be inconvenienced by the discovery of any new endangered species
 
2013-07-05 05:17:21 PM
So...the DNA was ruled not to be a new species?

From what species was her DNA acquired?

If you're ever feeling really good about things.  I mean, if you're thinking that we as a people are heading the right direction, just watch an episode of ghost hunters, or any of the various "search for Bigfoot" shows.

I'm usually suicidal within a few minutes.

This sort of fringe thinking is only possible in truly prosperous societies.  So, it's a mark of pride in a way, and yet at the same time, you know that if things ever got really bad for the US, it's people like this lunatic that'll be the first to get eaten by hungry survivors.

There is plenty of evidence for bigfoot.  The famous video has never been debunked.  No one, even big-name movie studios had the technology to make such a hoax back when the video was shot.

There are several stories of human breeding with bigfoot in asia/russia:

http://robertlindsay.wordpress.com/2011/04/28/human-bigfoot-hybrid-f ro m-china/

In fact it wasn't until the 20th century, when some were put into zoos, that mainstream society accepted that breeds of large gorillas existed.

People are so frightened of humanoid creatures existing, and never want to admit any exist, along with other weird creatures.  This is just another one of those.  People didn't want to accept there were giant squids, or duck-billed platypus, and now there is this.

Look, there HAS to be Bigfoots! There HAS to be! I don't care that there's just no possible way a huge primate could have gotten to the Pacific Northwest, much less existed there for 12,000 years undetected...I WANT TO BELIEVE SO I KNOW IT'S THERE!!!

I agree.  But try to convince me of the existence of a Republican with compassion or a thin TFette without daddy issues, and we're going to come to blows.

A variant of what?  Modern man is the only ape to have ever migrated to the Americas. Ever. There is nothing for Bigfoot to have evolved from.

How can you "find bigfoot DNA" if nobody has ever extracted DNA from a bigfoot?
 
2013-07-05 06:51:19 PM
Three, they themselves suppressed it for fear that their careers would be damaged.

If bigfoot were actually verified as true, the people involved would get big time credit.  Their careers aren't going to take a hit from telling the truth.  However, claiming it's true when the evidence isn't there will make them look as stupid as you.

Well, humans walked across the Bering Strait at one time.  And a few years ago, there was a news article about someone doing it then.  (I believe the russians arrested them when they arrived on that side.)

I'm very convinced that Sasquatch/yeti/bigfoot/whatever doesn't exist, but if they did, they would have walked across just like people have done.

The one that was done in California? The guy who was in the gorilla suit came out and said it was a hoax, and the guy who actually had the idea for the hoax came out, and the person who made the costume came out to say it was a hoax.

A variant of homo sapiens. I'm not saying that bigfeet necessarily evolved from us; I'm saying that they could conceivably be the same species; just a different variant.
