So the group of researchers and scientists set out to track what they call the furry people.

Uh-oh

"This creature does not follow general rule," said Dr. Ketchup. "What it does do is very different. We think it is human-hybrid. That is our theory."

I wonder if Dr. Mustard agrees.

This is the same woman who claims that Bigfeets are the result of the cross breeding of humans with
orangutans with a dash of 'angel DNA' thrown in for extra spice.

I want to believe in Sasquatch, but it's really hard when the only evidence is grainy, blurry video, blurry photos, human DNA, and casts of footprints.

Someone pointed out in one of these threads that the guy in charge of the research created his own scientific journal just for the sole purpose of peer-reviewing this. Plus you have to pay them money to see any of it.

Again?

This is hilarious. They couldn't get the paper past peer review so they bought some no name journal and published it anyway. Oh, Texas...

From their website:

It has been a long and tedious battle to prove that Sasquatch exists.  We have had the proof for nearly 5 years but building enough data to convince mainstream science has taken a lot of time.  Trying to publish has taken almost two years.  It seems mainstream science just can't seem to tolerate something controversial, especially from a group of primarily forensic scientists and not "famous academians" aligned with large universities, even though most of our sequencing and analysis was performed at just such facilities.  We encountered the worst scientific bias in the peer review process in recent history.  I am calling it the "Galileo Effect".  Several journals wouldn't even read our manuscript when we sent them a pre-submission inquiry.  Another one leaked our peer reviews.  We were even mocked by one reviewer in his peer review. We did finally pass peer review with a relatively new journal.  It took a fresh outlook on the part of the editors and their careful selection of reviewers with knowledge of next generation whole genome sequencing in order to pass.  I have no idea who the reviewers were though I have the reviews.  That was kept confidential as is the way journals handle peer reviews.  That was only part of the delay and problems associated with publication though.  After this journal agreed to publish the manuscript, their legal counsel advised them not to publish a manuscript on such a controversial subject as it would destroy the editors' reputations (as it has already done to mine).  I have documentation on all of this drama.  So, rather than spend another five years just trying to find a journal to publish and hoping that decent, open minded reviewers would be chosen, we acquired the rights to this journal and renamed it so we would not lose the passing peer reviews that are expected by the public and the scientific community.  Denovo, the new journal is aimed at offering not only more choices and better service to scientists wanting to submit a manuscript, but also reviewers and editors that will be fair, unlike the treatment we have received. We furthermore have adhered to all of the standards set here in the link below, especially since the entire review and agreement to publish was done at the previous journal...

Sounds legit.

As a wildlife & fisheries biologist, I think they are being pretty fast and loose with the terms "science," "scientists," and "research."

The poll results makes me sad.

Having been up close and personal with a creature and looking at these photos, I'm gonna say they have continued to fail at proving anything, they do exist but these people did not prove anything.

My understanding is that they can be lured in with beef jerky. Haven't tried it though.

Once they get samples, they should send them to the Mayo clinic for testing.

So I guess the biatch was just...

*puts on sunglasses*

....messin' with Sasquatch.

YEEAAAAAHHHHHH!!!

No, no, subby.  It's 'Real news. Real funny'.  Because all the paid links got their feelings hurt at the thought of the Corona Institute For Tastier Research not being considered real news.

Yes please: I_C_Weener: "This creature does not follow general rule," said Dr. Ketchup. "What it does do is very different. We think it is human-hybrid. That is our theory."

If we catch any of them alive, we need to put them on a Ranch.

I wouldn't Relish that thought.

I clicked "yes" just so they'd feel validated and keep wasting their time.

That's not true. They proved you could dress a kid up like Bigfoot and film him walking through the forest.

What helps clinch it for me is the complete lack of any fossil record.  We've got bones from a slew of now-extinct megafauna from this continent alone (giant farking beavers even), yet no evidence of ape-like creatures at all.  If they existed, they'd have left some trace.

Maybe a crime lab, at least by itself, is not able to pin down the exact species, only find certain information about human DNA! Maybe it is mixed human and animal DNA, or human and bacterial DNA, or human and viral DNA, etc.

I live in BigFootLand to the west of Aberdeen, Washington. I tromp the woods pretty regular and never have encountered one. I've seen their constructions (such as they are) and totally believe in their existence. I just don't think all the yelling and shouting in the media is gonna prove a damn thing. They have stayed out of our focus for millennia, and prolly will continue to do so.

For all y'all demanding that Bigfoot doesn't exist...uh, The odds of proving that is worse than the other way around.

So, don't close the door on Sasquatch. If'n they exist, they'll be seen (and everyone will be aghast) eventually, if they don't, they won't. It's really pretty simple.
