A “truly sensational discovery” will rock the anthropological community in the very near future! According to one of my commenters, who has an immaculate record as far as honesty goes, he received an email from a scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology who told him that a truly sensational discovery will rock the anthropological community in the very near future.
Now perhaps he is referring to something having to do with Denisova or Flores Man or some other hominid, but he may also be referring to Bigfoot. Perhaps this is a reference to the dead Bigfoot shot by Rick Dyer. Or is to the Sykes Study by Dr. Bryan Sykes of Oxford? Anyway, Indian Summer may be quite hot in the Bigfoot community this year.
Dr. Melba Ketchum wanted to sue Nature Magazine for defamation of character. It was never quite proven that Nature Magazine had rejected Ketchum’s paper or even that they had received it. However, I have it from an excellent source, a friend of mine, who worked with Ketchum that indeed it was at Nature for some time and they did in fact reject it. Therefore, Matt Moneymaker’s leak along those lines was correct.
There is even a letter from Nature detailing the changes that they wanted her to make in order to run the piece. My source believed that Nature was scared off by the unknown DNA finding in Ketchum’s paper. They were afraid that that sounded too crazy and they didn’t want to seem like kooks. My source told me that Melba had proof that Nature leaked parts of her paper out into the scientific community (another long standing rumor supposedly unproven) and Melba had no way to defend herself against the attacks coming in from the leaks without jeopardizing publication of the paper which she was not allowed to talk about.
The source felt that Melba is “a bit whacky, but her heart was in the right place, and her science was good.” Melba enlisted an attorney to sue Nature for defamation of character, but the attorney did not want to touch the case for fear of being labeled a kook. The source said that that list of labs that worked with Melba was impressive.
Ketchum Project suffered from estrogen poisoning. The source above also told me that there was constant drama inside the Ketchum Project, with continual catfights, breakups, huggy apologies and reunions, and cliques and alliances forming, collapsing and reforming. He attributed all of this mercurial cyclothymia to the fact that almost everyone on the project was a woman. “There were too many women on the project,” he told me. “They needed a man around to steer the ship.”
Peer review documents between Ketchum and Nature Magazine are now available for download! I have now obtained two peer review documents between Ketchum and Nature. The first is a response to peer review criticisms from Melba listing the criticisms and the changes that were made to deal with them. The second is a threatening letter from Melba accusing Nature of leaking secret peer review documents about her study and therefore harming her reputation. It’s pretty interesting and at times explosive stuff!
I was on the radio recently. Blogtalk radio to be precise. The host was Philip Smith and he was quite hostile. It was a most unpleasant experience. I am on from :32 to :48 in case you are interested. Unless I am wrong though, Philip was co-hosting shows with Rick Dyer last year around December. I remember listening to a Dyer show, and Smith was one of the co-hosts. If I am not mistaken, Smith also said that he had spent time in prison on that show, possibly considerable time, as in a number of years. But I could be wrong on that!
Now he has gone all the way over, done a 180 and thrown in with haters. And he has three sources at Minnow Films, one of whom told him where Rick’s body was, and the other two of whom told him that the whole thing was a hoax? When we can’t even get one single source out of Minnow after months of trying? Forget it, this guy is not credible.
New video of Rick Dyer apparently confirming my scoop about a video of Hank the dead Bigfoot existing. Here is the new video with a cleaned up audio:
Though Rick doesn’t explicitly confirm the story here, the fact that he was moved to speak up at all at that moment, rather than just keeping his trap shut, is an implicit confirmation that the video is true.
I sure would love to see that Dead Hank video!
Team Tracker furiously looking for the leaker who leaked the story about the Dead Hank video. To me, this is more confirmation that the video in fact exists. Rick is apparently very mad that this information got leaked and is trying to find the mole. What I don’t get is why Rick does not want this getting out. If there is a Dead Hank video out there, that is excellent confirmation of his story, is it not?
Clarification on video of scientist purportedly studying Hank. I said yesterday that Rick has a video of Rick interviewing a scientist who supposedly worked on the body of Hank the Bigfoot. However, the truth is that that Rick did not interview the scientist. Instead, the video was sent to Rick by the scientist himself. The scientist apparently videotaped himself talking about the body he was supposedly working on.
I would give anything to see that video!
Interesting March 31 Dyer radio show. On his March 31 radio show around the 1:21 hour mark, Rick claims that his shooting of a Bigfoot in San Antonio was “cleared” by the Texas Fish and Game Department. That is quite a bold statement to make! Has anyone attempted to validate this claim with the Fish and Game Department?
Still no reefer truck receipt from Dyer. Skeptics keep hounding Rick to release the receipt from his reefer truck rental, but he has not done so. Rick promised to release it after the showing of Shooting Bigfoot, but that date came and went. He claimed he rented it for a whole month and the bill was quite high. Why won’t Rick release the reefer truck receipt?
Craig Phillips says he saw Hank at a funeral home! Apparently Hank was not at the government facility when Craig went to see it being moved, but instead it was at a funeral home! A funeral home? What the heck?
Funeral home employee fired for trying to take a picture of Hank. 6 weeks ago, at this same funeral home, an employee was fired for trying to take a photograph of Hank’s body according to Rick. This is quite shocking news and it would be a great angle to follow up on for both skeptics and believers.
