Yay! Another long awaited Bigfoot news! How bout that?
Melba Ketchum DNA study replicated three teams by three different scientific teams! Of course in science, replication is everything. If you cannot replicate your findings, they are near-worthless, as all scientific findings must be replicated, usually not just once but a number of times.
Melba’s study initially was greeted with round of derision worse than you hear at a violent soccer match. Nearly the entire community trashed her without even reading her findings. A glum press conference was held in Texas starring several Bigfoot luminaries who all acted like they would rather be someplace else. See below about how there was not even any attempt to replicate the study by anyone in science. They simply said that the whole idea that Sasquatches exist is insane and they refused to read any further than that. Gotta love those capital-S Scientists!
Then for a long time nothing happened. But just recently I heard that the Ketchum study has been replicated not once, not twice, but actually three separate times!
First replication of Ketchum’s findings. The first replication was by a man named Dr. David Swenson. He is a top genetics researcher who has published over 130 genetics papers in scientific journals. He was interested in the findings, but as he said in an interview, he had always thought that that Sasquatch was just a legend or a made-up story. He never believed it.
But he decided to look into Melba’s findings. He blasted them and took some time reading over what he saw. At first he just looked at one chromosome, and in the video interview he did, he only talks about looking at that one chromosome.
The skeptards have dismissed his findings because “he only looked at one chromosome.” But his findings were remarkable. He stated that in that one chromosome, he was able to validate Melba’s findings. He found that indeed this was the DNA of a hybrid that was half human on the female side and half some relict or older hominid on the male side. He was absolutely stunned and could not believe his findings. He discussed them in an interview with Joe Rogan. Rogan asked him if this meant that he believed that Sasquatches exist, and he hedged his answer, scientist that he is. He said:
“Well, I would not go this far. Let’s put it this way. One thing I know for sure is there is an unknown animal in the Pacific Northwest. Let’s just leave it like that.”
Some of the usual skeptards, mostly from one of the worst bunch of Bigfooters out there, the pond scum coagulating around this abomination of a Facebook group otherwise known as Skeptard Central, said I based my whole post on “second hand word of mouth.” Well of course. That’s how everything is in this field. People say things, I write them down and report them. What’s so wrong about that? That’s how this game works. We don’t have much of anything better than “second hand word of mouth” anyway. We haven’t proven jack about these things. We don’t even know they exist. All we have are “second hand word of mouth” sighting reports.
There. There’s the video above of Swenson discussing his replication of Ketchum’s findings. Now it’s not “second hand word of mouth” anymore, right? You satisfied?
Another skeptard argument, this one much more malicious (But what do you expect from skeptards?) was that Swensen is not credible because “he and Melba go way back.” So this distinguished genetic scientist is not credible because he is an old friend of Melba’s? This man is on the verge of committing scientific fraud in order to help an old friend! Wow, breathtaking accusation.
However, now I have learned that this is not true, and he has not known Melba for a long time. He only got interested in her after he heard about her study. And at that time, he didn’t even believe in Sasquatch! Then he did replication work and was stunned to discover that she was absolutely right! So if agreeing with Melba means “he and Melba go way back,” well then, I must say is that that is a pretty horrible argument, but it’s typical of the skeptards.
Another argument, not really by skeptards but nonetheless a skeptic rejoinder, is the one noted above that Swensen only looked at one chromosome, so the results are not valid. There is a bit of a point here, but how do you look at a single chromosome of any mammal and somehow conclude that it is a hybrid between a human female and a relict hominid male? I don’t get it.
On the other hand, I have now been able to kill that argument too. A source very close to Ketchum has told me that Swensen actually looked at the entire genome and then concluded the same thing, that it was a hybrid between a human female and an unknown relict hominid male.
So it looks like both skeptic arguments have been shot down on that one. Don’t worry, they will come back with new ones.
Second replication of Ketchum’s findings. The second replication occurred when a lab team associated with an unknown university tried to replicate Ketchum’s findings. Apparently they thought the results were some sort of a joke, and they set out to prove that. They did use some of Ketchum’s actual samples. She still has quite a bit of samples left over from the old study. They had full institutional support until they concluded the study. They tested both NuDNA and MtDNA, and they replicated Ketchum’s findings in toto.
However the institution was only giving them support on the supposition that they would show that Ketchum’s findings were false. As soon as they replicated her findings, institutional support was pulled. The team said they were not going to publish their findings, as a replication of Ketchum’s findings would be a “career-killer” as they put it. However, they did inform Ketchum of the results. They also do not wish to be named for the same reason given for not publishing their findings.
From Ketchum’s Facebook page:
HUGE NEWS: Our research has now been independently verified genome wise. I don’t know when or how they’ll come out with it and I’m not at liberty to say who yet, but it’s finished and matches what we got down to the smallest details. Thank you, God!
Another post about the independent study from her FB page:
Thanks everyone for the kind words and prayers. It’s been a tough road but at some point the bad will be over since this independent study by acclaimed scientists will come out. Yippee.
Of course, skeptics will have a field day with this one, claiming that Ketchum is lying. But if she is lying about the results of another study, is that not scientific fraud? I believe it is. Scientific fraud is a very serious charge. It’s effectively a career-ender in science. Most people proven to have committed scientific fraud will never publish again. So I would just like to point out that when skeptics accuse Ketchum of making up these results, they are accusing her of scientific fraud, a very serious charge. Glad we cleared that up.
Update: The skeptards are already running crazy with this one, saying she has no evidence other than Ketchum’s own word. That is correct, but the whole reason that the team didn’t want to publish was because replicating Ketchum would mean the end of their careers. In fact, the support from the university was apparently contingent on proving Ketchum wrong. As soon as she was replicated, the university’s support ended.
But why did the team feel that way? Because of the despicable attitude created by the skeptards in the very first place, which now permeates “science” from top to bottom. But let us grant them that one. They are correct. All we have is Ketchum’s word on this one. But if this thing really has been replicated three different times now, this won’t be the last time. Replications will continue in the future and at some point, somebody is going to publish.
I specifically asked Richard Stubstad whether it was possible that Ketchum was fabricating the results, making stuff up or committing scientific fraud. He told me, “That is not possible.” Richard was a statistician, and he often reported his views in terms of statistical possibilities. So when he says that she could not have committed scientific fraud, he is saying that the odds of her doing that are so low as to be effectively nil. He told me that she was a good, sincere and morally proper scientist, and she just didn’t have it in her to commit scientific fraud. Keep in mind that Stubstad and Ketchum did not like each other at all. And even this man who did not like her said she was not capable of faking results.
Here is Ketchum reporting on the second replication of her study. There. Now it’s not “second hand word of mouth.” Satisfied?
Third replication of Ketchum’s results. I have just received word that a third lab has replicated Ketchum’s results at least in part. This lab came to Ketchum intrigued by her findings and said they wanted to try to replicate. Ketchum gave them some of her samples, and they went off to the lab. Unfortunately, they only tested MtDNA. But they did replicate her study in a sense.
First they used a hair specialist who found that the hair was not human and not that of any known animal. Then the MtDNA tested human, which is exactly correct. So you have proven nonhuman hair testing as human, and in a sense Ketchum is replicated again. It would have been nice if they would have done NuDNA, but they did not. I am not sure if this team is going to publish or not. I will have to ask my source about that.
The skeptards are also going nuts with this one, claiming it is “second hand word of mouth.” Correct, so far they have not published. But maybe they will. Anyway, all evidence must be reported, optimal or not.
Update on the Sierra Kills! I will not go into detail about the Kills, but you can look it up on the Net if you are interested. Briefly, Justin Smeja and an unidentified hunting partner shot and killed two Sasquatches on October 10, 2010 in the Plumas National Forest about 25 miles west of Sierra Valley. I am 100% certain that these kills occurred.
Yes, you heard of the Sierra Kills, but those were surely not the last Sasquatches to be killed by humans. An old friend of mine, in discussing the Sierra Kills case, admitted that it would never amount to anything for a variety of reasons, mostly because as he said, the people involved in the Sierra Kills both directly and peripherally (you know who you are) do not want anything to come of it.
Was Sasquatch flesh retained from the Sierra Kills? Yes. How was it retained? No one knows because Justin Smeja’s wild story about a dog digging through three feet of snow to find a piece of Bigfoot steak is now completely trashed by the fact that he has been carting around a piece of Black Bear to various DNA labs and having it tested and claiming that it is the same piece of “Sasquatch” that he sent to Ketchum. In doing this, Justin is in a sense negating his whole story, though I think his real mission is probably to make Melba look bad. I believe I know why Justin is doing this among other reasons, but I will not elaborate here.
We had a piece of Sasquatch (which was hilariously referred to as the Bigfoot Steak) that was retained from the Kills. This piece was proven to be a Sasquatch in one DNA study, which was then replicated by one scientist and two more teams.
Also we know that Justin (who I know fairly well) did not even believe in Sasquatch before this incident occurred. We know this because this is what all of his friends told us. In fact he openly ridiculed anyone who believed in it.
Until that fateful late afternoon in early October six years ago, when a large adult male Sasquatch and one his children, a juvenile Sasquatch, were shot and killed by Justin Smeja to the southwest of Mount Haskell in the Plumas National Forest in the Sierra Nevada.
What is the likelihood that someone who openly ridiculed those who believed in Sasquatches would concoct an insane story like this? Just about zero. For money? Justin hasn’t made a nickel off of this crazy story, and in fact, he told me that this incident had actually caused him to lose a lot of money. So what’s in it for him? Nothing. How about fame? Justin told me that the only fame he got was infamy, and that’s not the sort of fame that he wants.
Perhaps Justin is a crazy guy who just makes up crazy stuff. Well then, he had to get his very level headed hunter friend (Who refused to be shown on videotape – why if he is after fame?) to go along with this insane story. But I know Justin Smeja. Justin Smeja, whatever you think of him, and I actually like the guy, is probably one of the most level headed, no-BS men that I have ever met. If you were looking for the exact opposite of someone who would make up an insane story like this, Justin is your man.
Road to Damascus conversions of Sasquatch witnesses. Since the killings, my understanding is that Justin has been much of his free time and certainly much of his summers up in the Sierras looking for Sasquatches. He now knows that they are real, and he is out to in a sense be vindicated for all of the humiliation that he went through. Rick Dyer Redux, but with a much better lead actor this time.
Now let us suppose that Justin made this story up for whatever nutty reason. Why on Earth, if he made up a stupid story, would he spend almost every free minute for the next several years up in the mountains hoping to see another Sasquatch? No one would do that. That’s absurd.
You see this over and over with witnesses. They see a Sasquatch, and it’s a Road to Damascus conversion. Their whole life changes, and in quite a few cases, they dedicate the rest of their lives to proving that these things are real. Bobby Short, Don Meldrum, John Bindernagel, Adrian Erickson, and Derek Randles are some of the names of the greats of our field who saw these things, sometimes just once, and then went on to devoting the rest of their lives to proving that they exist. I have known or extensively studied the histories of all of these people. Two are actual scientists. Bobby Short was a nurse. Derek Randles is one of the most no-bullshit guys you will ever meet. Adrian Erickson saw Sasquatches four separate times.
The clincher from the Sierra Kills – juvenile Sasquatches with heads as big as five gallon buckets! One thing clinched the Sierra Kills story for me. When Justin first told a Canadian man over the phone about the Kills after his famous initial posting on Taxidermy.net, one of the things that he said was that the juvenile Sasquatch had a huge head, as big as a five gallon bucket. This fact is controversial in the community, but I believe it is true. You can see it in the Pancake Video from the ill-fated Kentucky Project.
Here a juvenile Sasquatch (a female named Matilda) is seen coming at night to grab some pancakes off of table where the pancakes were laid out for the Sasquatches at night. This may sound insane, but the female half of the couple at the site, Sissy, said she had been feeding the Sasquatches there for some time now. She learned this from her mother. Her mother had fed the Sasquatches for a long time, and she also fed them pancakes. So Sissy grew up as a girl with a mother who believed in Sasquatches and said she fed them on a regular basis. So when Sissy grew up, she knew the Sasquatches were still out there, so she continued the feeding.
The Erickson Project occurred when Adrian Erickson bought the Kentucky Project property on Mann Road in Crittenden, Kentucky where Sissy had been feeding the Sasquatches. He then stationed Leila Hadj-Chikh, who had a PhD in Ecology from Yale, along with Dennis Pfohl from Colorado at the house for the purpose of obtaining evidence of the Sasquatches that were there.
In the Pancake Video, a much ridiculed aspect of the video is that it portrays a child wearing a turban who comes up to the table at night to snatch the pancakes. However, that is no turban. It looks like a turban because juvenile Sasquatches for some reason have huge heads, as big as a five gallon bucket, as Smeja noted.
As soon as I heard that Justin had noted that the juvenile had a huge head, I knew he was telling the truth. That is because the fact that the babies have huge heads is known by almost no one other than a few Sasquatch experts. In fact, it is widely debated in the field, and some say that it is not even true that they have huge heads. But there is no way that someone like Justin, who did not even believe in Sasquatches, ridiculed anyone who did, and consequently had no interest in the ridiculous subject could possibly know this incredibly obscure fact about the juveniles having gigantic heads. Forget it. Not possible.
This photo is also very little known. I think it is from a video. The video is not very good quality and it was taken from some distance, but look at those weird, spindly, akimbo limbs again. You never see those in a hoax.
Bigfoot Steak or Black Bear Tenderloin – this is the question. Justin gave Melba a piece of what he thought was the Sasquatch that he killed. She tested it, and by DNA proved that it came from a Sasquatch. However, Justin and Melba then had a serious falling out. Justin then began carting around more pieces of what he claimed was the same flesh he gave to Melba to four DNA labs, all of which said the piece tested out bear.
The result of Justin’s DNA testing project? Melba Ketchum looks like a liar and an idiot for receiving a piece of bear and concluding that it was actually a piece of Sasquatch.
However, we now know that there are different pieces of flesh. The piece of flesh that he gave to Melba is not from the same flesh that tested out multiple times as Black Bear. The reports proving that we are dealing with two different pieces of flesh can be found here in scanned copies portrayed on Scott Carpenter’s great website, the Bigfoot Field Journal.
I believe the whole story of the Sierra Kills has not been told, which goes without saying, as Justin has been mysteriously toting around a piece of bear claiming it was part of a piece of Sasquatch he sent to Ketchum. However, I believe that there is much more to it than that, and in fact we will never know the true story of the Sierra Kills, in particular what happened after the Sasquatches were killed.
I will not elaborate further except to say that I heave dealt with my theories on this site a lot in the past, and all writing about it does is make people furious at me and call me a liar. There appear to be have been a number of Sasquatch killings in the last 200 years. Most of them are obviously clouded in mystery as all killings of unproven creatures are. I am quite sure that the Sierra Kills will fade into history as just one more Sasquatch killing story that is shrouded in mystery if not controversy like most of the rest of them. Enough of the Sierra Kills!
The loathsome trashing of Melba Ketchum by Big Science. When Melba’s study first appeared, the scientific community first tried to ignore her like a fart in a crowd that everyone hopes will dissipate and will hopefully not be spoken of. We all know it’s there, it stinks like Hell, but we have all agreed that this is so embarrassing that no one should talk about it. Which pretty much sums up Big Science’s initial response.
However, the Bigfoot community was going bonkers over this study, mostly beating Melba over the head senseless with a verbal cudgel. At some point, Melba was the elephant in the room that Big Science could no longer ignore, probably because by now it’s pooping on the rug.
First they ignored her. Then they ridiculed her.
When ignoring her didn’t work, Big Science went to Plan B: Ridicule.
A few articles were published here and there, and mostly the community laughed her off as a pitiful joke. But they all had a good sadistic laugh at the poor woman ‘s expense. However the truth is that not one single scientist who trashed Ketchum even read the study. They simply dismissed it out of hand, which is typical of Mainstream Science and is one of my beefs with them and their Scientific God or Gods that they worship in so fundamentalist a fashion. Nor were any attempts made to replicate her findings. They simply looked at the title and findings, started laughing, threw the study on the floor, and asked the bartender for another round please. They turned the Trashing of Melba into a big party.
Melba in a sense botched the roll-out of the study in a variety of ways, but much of it was probably not her fault.
The Bigfoot community had a big laugh about the study despite the fact that, like Big Science, no one even read it. The performance of some of these clowns was disgusting. One histrionic wag often off his much-needed meds called her “the cat doctor” because she is a veterinarian. He nearly spit the phrase out with contempt when he said it. Over and over it was said that a veterinarian could not know anything about genetics.
However, Melba has published several studies on animal genetics in genetics journals, and she ran (poorly) a now bankrupt DNA lab in Texas. The lab specialized in animal genetics.
Further, Melba was called upon to take part in the DNA project to find the remains of victims killed in the 9-11 terror attacks. DNA was needed because there was almost nothing left of many of the victims. Hence, pieces of human were wrapped up and shipped to the DNA lab, where geneticists tried to match the piece of human to one of the victims. In this macabre manner, most if not all of the 9-11 victims were identified. Only the best geneticists in the US were even asked to participate in this process, so the fact that Melba was chosen shows that she knows her stuff when it comes to genetics.
Further, before he died, Richard Stubstad told me that Melba, in addition to being brilliant, definitely knew her stuff when it came to genetics.
The saga of the Gigantic Sasquatch Lemur from 60 million years ago. The community had a huge guffaw over what they said was Melba’s claim that Sasquatches were actually gigantic lemurs from Madagascar that lived 60 million years ago. These lemurs actually existed way back then as we have learned from the fossil record. How these giant lemurs somehow leaped from an African island 60 million years ago to deep woods of the Pacific Northwest in our modern era without being spotted in the interim in either time or space is uncertain. Perhaps they rode some Sasquatch Lemur Time Warp. Who knows? See video below and say hello to Brad for me please.
Of course such a claim is absurd on its face, but her study was so poorly written (another botch, see below) that one could actually muddle through the fractured syntax and tortured prose to conclude that this was indeed the absurd claim she was making.
However, the truth is that Melba never said that Sasquatches were Giant Lemurs from Madagascar from 60 million years ago. That is a false reading of her paper. Instead she said that Sasquatches had a gene that caused their eyes to glow in the dark that traced back to these extinct Giant Lemurs from Island Africa. Got it? And yes, Sasquatches do have eyes that glow in the dark. There are many videos on Youtube showing this.
Melba’s roll-out of her study was heavily botched, as noted above. She could not find a journal which would print her findings. It was in peer review at Nature, the flagship journal of science, for some time but was rejected there. Editors at other journals openly told her that their scientific careers would be destroyed if they ran her study in their journals. So Melba bought her own journal and changed the name of it in a rather underhanded and sleazy way, lying continuously the whole time she was doing this.
Then she claimed she did her own peer review with a few scientists and it passed. She never showed us any evidence of this review. I doubt if the study was ever peer-reviewed. She probably just lied and said it was so she might be regarded as even slightly serious. Alas, it was all for naught, as the study was rejected out of hand, peer review or no peer review. In addition, her rather sleazy shenanigans with the frankly vanity journal that she bought in order to run her study added to the ridicule and derision from the scientific community, not that I blame them, as the whole thing seemed pretty amateurish and had a bad smell to it.
The thing is that if your scientific study cannot pass peer review at a real scientific journal, you can always go out and create or buy a vanity journal, make it your own journal and then print your own stuff. You can even claim that you did your own peer review. In this sense, dubious findings which fail to even make it through peer review at refereed journals can be published by any scientist, amateur or professional, with a bit of cash and a lot of nerve and gall.
On the other hand, almost no one will take your vanity journal study seriously, similar to the way almost no one reads or takes seriously vanity books that are published on their own by authors in a similar fashion when they can’t find a real publisher. Vanity journals and publishers are the last refuge of throwaway studies and books that the industry thinks are so bad that they won’t even print a single copy. They are regarded as a joke category for, well, losers who can’t make it in publishing or science. Sort of, “If no one else thinks your work is any good, just publish it yourself!” Embarrassing.
Nowadays with self-publishing this is all changing somewhat, but still self-published books often have horrible layout, typeface, photos and proofreading no matter the quality of the actual writing, which is sometimes quite good. These books scream amateur so loudly you want to throw them across the room. So self-publishing, while a step up from the vanity presses of yore, continues to suffer from much the same credibility gap as the old presses.
Sad Erickson Project press conference. There was a nearly pitiful press conference held with in Texas with Melba, Adrian Erickson, Dennis Pfohl, and some other superstars of the scene. The presser was poorly handled. A few shocking snippets of Erickson’s Sasquatch videotapes from the Erickson Project were shown, but my sources tell me that a lot of the best material was withheld. For what reason? No one seems to know. Supposedly for a TV show starring Erickson which has not yet come to pass.
Melba rattled off her DNA findings. Nobody showed up for the presser, and it received almost no media. Adrian’s videos, including the fascinating one of Matilda, the young female Sasquatch from the Kentucky Project sleeping on the ground that could not have been faked, were laughed off again. There were also a few new videos, but they were not nearly as impressive as Sleeping Matilda. Erickson looked glum through the whole thing. Melba was earnest. Pfohl tried his best. The whole thing was embarrassing, but I think they tried their best.
Adrian Erickson, failure and fool? Not so fast now! Adrian Erickson saw Sasquatches four separate times. After the last time, he reportedly said, “I am getting tired of seeing these things. I am going to prove that they exist.” Hence he spent $3 million of his own hard cash in an attempt to prove that they exist. The Erickson Project is typically regarded as a failure in which Erickson wasted his money.
However, he used that money to shoot some excellent Sasquatch video which was not faked, and he helped fund Melba Ketchum’s Sasquatch DNA project which not only proved that Sasquatches exist but has now been replicated by three separate scientific teams. Adrian, like Melba, has been heavily trashed by this episode (Melba openly states tragically that it ruined her career), however I believe that in the end, both will be vindicated and will come to be regarded as among the Greats of our field, up there with Roger Patterson, Bob Gimlin and the rest.
Bryan Sykes DNA study. Here is Ketchum commenting on Brian Sykes going on Coast to Coast radio and attacking Melba’s DNA study:
I received a copy of the nicest email from a guy that wrote C to C. I wanted to share it. It humbles me when people are so gracious. It’s all of you here and people like this who sent this to my public page that make all of the hate bearable. I just want to thank all of you for your kind words, support, and encouragement. I love y’all! I haven’t heard back from George K. yet. I’ll keep you posted.
Hi George and George,
I’m a huge Coast fan and Coast Insider, and I literally listen to the show everyday. Usually, I am very happy with Coast, but today after listening to the show with Brian Sykes, I must say I am very upset. During his appearance with Dave Schraeder this weekend, he seriously and unfairly badmouthed Melba Ketchum and her amazing ground-breaking DNA study of Bigfoot.
Sykes was totally arrogant throughout the show and was obviously very ill-informed about Melba’s work, nonetheless he proceeded to trash talk her and her study. It was disturbing and unworthy of Coast. I know neither of you hosted the show, but I wanted to ask you to please give some airtime to Melba Ketchum to refute the baseless accusations that Sykes leveled against her and her study. Melba deserves a chance to address this. Thank you.
More posts from Melba about Sykes, all from her FB page:
Normally I just let all the garbage go, but Sykes is a scientist and has been nasty about our study, yet he’s not been at Oxford for many years (quote from Oxford) ,and without keeping up with the technology, you’re a dinosaur within a year or so at the rate technology is developing. He makes up an “institute” at Oxford to publish his paper, which you NEVER do (once again quoting Oxford as saying there is no such institute).
He disses bioinformatics, which is the most cutting edge analysis method for whole genomes known to mankind, preferring the “golden age of genetics”. His paper was proven wrong about the bear genetics by other geneticists, and they wrote a published response to the Royal Academy. All of this can be found in the UK press and the Royal Academy, so I’m not saying anything that’s not public knowledge.
He’s a mtDNA scientist, so he’s not skilled in all of the disciplines in our paper.
I’m not either on all of it – that’s why there are numerous authors in our manuscript. Each scientist wrote according to their discipline. Like the bioinformatics was written by the bioinformaticist. The electron microscopy by the head of that department at Texas A&M and so forth. I’m only the lead author and therefore responsible for answering the questions and correspondence for it, writing my part, and putting it all together.
We used 12 labs and they used one US mtDNA lab, not Oxford and only tested a small portion of the mtDNA loop. No other genetic testing was done..
And after all of this, he has the audacity to diss our work. How unprofessional and naive. Bless his heart. I can prove ours is not contaminated by human or other mammals. I did a video on it. He forgets I’m a forensic scientist, and all crime scenes are subject to contamination, so I know how to make sure it’s not there.
One more thing. SYKES CONTACTED ME before his paper, and I offered him full access to samples, research and even offered to take him to the habituation site. I have the emails. Then he contacts me back and says he’s not coming. He didn’t even have to come here to have access to everything, but he blew me off after I offered everything. So that speaks a lot for his wanting to get to the truth. I don’t say anything I can’t prove, and I have the emails to back this up. If he had worked with me, he would know why the seven Sasquatch samples in his study wouldn’t run. It took us months to figure this out. In his paper he says he doesn’t understand why they didn’t run, but I know…
I think it would be very interesting to figure out why those seven samples would not run at all.
Reason Bryan Sykes study failed. Sykes was given a very large number of all sorts of samples. Apparently a number of them were from Sasquatches, but quite a few others were from known animals or even people.
My contact at Ketchum’s study gave me the rundown on her group’s opinion of what went down in the Sykes study:
Sykes used a hair specialist to look at his samples before he used them. What the purpose of this hair specialist was is not known, since he didn’t appear to screen much of anything. The Ketchum camp believes that Sykes’ hair specialist knew what Sasquatch hairs look like. They do have a characteristic quality that makes them look like no known animal, nor do they appear human, though they look more human than anything else.
Ketchum’s people felt that the hair specialist had specifically weeded out all of the Sasquatch samples and only sent samples of known animals and humans to Sykes, possibly disposing of all of the Sasquatch samples. Why he would do this is not known, but the contact told me that there are a number of researchers who are either professionally jealous of Ketchum or for one reason or another want to discredit her study. The contact implied that Sykes or at least his hair specialist was one of those.
“The fix is in,” he told me in relation to this and a number of other professional attempts to sabotage or discredit Ketchum’s findings.
Major proponents of Ape Theory know they are wrong! A war has been going on for a long time in the scene between proponents of the Ape Hypothesis, which states that Sasquatches are apes, and believers in the Hominid Hypothesis, which states that they are a type of people, albeit prehistoric men.
An anonymous source who is very deep into the scene has told me that a number of the major proponents of the Ape Hypothesis know that they are wrong and know that Sasquatches are a type of hominid, but they feel that if they change their theory now, their careers will be over. He named a few names, but I am not going to repeat them here. Suffice to say that they are people that everyone in the scene has heard of. Now don’t any of you big proponents of the Ape Theory go writing me angry mails now! I didn’t name any names, right? Could be anyone, right?
But this sure is shocking news!
Are Ape Theory proponents sabotaging Hominid Theory people? According to a source very deep into the scene, sabotaging is really the wrong word to use. Instead, the Ape Theory people systematically ignore all evidence that does not fit in with their theory. They dismiss Ketchum’s DNA study on hazy or shaky grounds, and when on TV, they simply never mention it. They more or less act like Ketchum’s paper does not even exist.
However, I have good evidence that well-known Ape Theory proponent Matt Moneymaker has sabotaged a number of sighting reports in his database by removing witness accounts that describe the Sasquatch as looking human. Richard Hucklebridge was run off the BFRO because he confronted Matt over his alteration of data. Wow! Matt Moneymaker altering scientific data to fit it into his pet theory! Sleazy or what?
Sasquatches actually cloak! I know this sounds completely insane, and for a long time, I laughed at the people who believed in cloaking, as I thought they were were woo types. However, now an anonymous source who is also an excellent researcher presented me with some evidence that Sasquatches actually do cloak. He showed me a photo of a cloaking Sasquatch and outlined the Sasquatch in red ink. You could indeed see an indistinct shadow there.
He told me that Sasquatches cloak by using their infrasound to bend light waves, making them appear to be somewhat invisible. They’re not actually invisible, but they look instead like an indistinct light shadow that could be anything. Apparently via infrasound you may be able to bend light waves to produce this effect. It’s quite amazing, and this is a scientific explanation that could theoretically actually make sense.
This clears up so many things. Remember all the reports of Sasquatches vanishing into thin air, even in the Arizona and Texas desert? I always thought that was completely insane, but there have been so many reports that you start to wonder. There was once a page up called Desert Sasquatch that included a lot of these weird reports along with a lot of other very woo stuff. However, the female author was scientific minded and offered possible scientific solutions (highly speculative of course) for how the Sasquatches could be doing some of these woo things. She also had a theory for the “Sasquatch disappearing into thin air” observations.
Notice how many times people report that these things are impossible to see? Maybe that’s because they cloak much of the time they are around us! Notice how many people say you only see them when they want you to see them? Well, maybe we only see them when they take their cloaking off in order to be seen for some reason!
Another thing that I have noticed so many times is that people take photos of videos where they can’t see much of anything in the background or at least there are certainly no Sasquatches. They just shoot a video of a hike, the forest outside their cabin or the field next door. It is only when they go in to look at the photos or video that they shot that they notice the Sasquatch that they somehow could not see at the time! Now I am wondering if this cloaking only works on the human eye and not on cameras. After all, eyeballs and photo lenses work in completely different ways.
Perhaps the human eye is subject to this light-bending effect but cameras are not? If that is so, then that is an excellent explanation for all of the cases we have of people shooting photography with nothing in the background but landscape and only seeing the Sasquatch after they are looking at the film or video later on. That’s because the Sasquatch was invisible to the human eye but not to the camera lens. It’s just a theory, but it would explain a major problem in Sasquatch sightings which is how Sasquatches unseen at the time of the photographing suddenly show up later when you are looking at the film.
This is one of the most fantastic Sasquatch videos I have ever seen. It is from Sasquatch Ontario. The fellow who runs that organization is named Mike and is despised by most everyone in the scene because he refuses to cooperate with other researchers and fights with almost anyone. Apparently he is a complete SOB.
But this video is simply incredible. Notice the obviously cloaking Sasquatch in the background speaking and singing to the researcher. This has been called a hoax, but how in the Hell do you hoax that? How do you make that perfectly-shaped thing in the background, and why would you make it so indistinct like that? Is Sasquatch Ontario a special effects studio? I don’t think so.
I know someone who is familiar with Mike and has been out to his habituation site. This man told me that Mike is 100% real, and he is not hoaxing at all.
Now once you accuse someone of hoaxing, shouldn’t you prove it? OK, people say this video is hoaxed. Got any evidence that it’s hoaxed? Can you prove it? Well if you have no evidence, then be quiet about the hoaxing charge!
The bizarre method of Sasquatch speech. As you can see in the video above, that thing is speaking in the strangest way. The latest theory for why Sasquatches sound so damn weird is because they speak on the inhale instead of speaking on the exhale as we do. That thing in the video is speaking and singing on the inhale! No wonder it sounds so weird. Try speaking on the inhale if you can manage it, and see how it sounds. Isn’t that weird? Why the Hell do they speak on the inhale?
And one more thing, if you were going to hoax a Sasquatch talking, why in God’s name would you record the human hoaxer speaking on the inhale of all things? No one would do that. Further, some of the sounds being produced by that thing seem to beyond the range of the human vocal tract.
Possible Sasquatch seen on Survivorman! Les Stroud did a Survivorman show for a couple of years on TV. The show was broken up into a number of parts, and then the parts were further broken up into Parts 1 and 2. There were at least eight separate Survivorman Bigfoot portions. The labeling looked like say Survivorman Bigfoot 7, Part 1, for example.
No one knows what is in this video. Some are saying it is a tree, a stump, a shadow or a rock. It could not have been hoaxed because Stroud does not hoax. Not only that, but this possible Sasquatch was not seen until the show appeared on TV! It was only then that watchful viewers noticed the possible Sasquatch in the background. Stroud and the camera crew didn’t even know the thing was there! Of course, once again we see a case where the humans at the scene saw nothing, and the Sasquatch only shows up later on the camera. This may be due to cloaking, but that’s just my theory.
I do think this is a Sasquatch because that is exactly what they look like. Not only that, but nothing else in the background is the same shade of black as that object. Most importantly, the black object has a sheen to it. Rocks, trees, stumps, and shadows don’t have a sheen, especially on a cloudy day with no sun out. But true Sasquatch videos often have sheen. This is because as I noted above, real Sasquatches have oils on their skin under their hair.
This gives them, and presumably any other living thing with such skin oils, a sheen to their coats. It’s notable that not one single proven hoax has even had sheen to it, nor have hoaxers even tried to replicate this sheen, maybe because they can’t. Obviously suits will not have sheen because they are worn over a clothed human body. There’s no skin oils for the suit to contact, and the suit’s not real hair on a real body anyway.
Survivorman Bigfoot show at the Alberta Habituation Site! There was one portion, Show 7, shot at this famous site which only I have written about. Show 7 has Parts 1 and 2. It’s labeled Nordegg, Canada. If you have been reading me, that is almost exactly where I implied that the AHS was! Stroud went out to the AHS with Todd Standing. It’s been Todd’s site for some time now ever since the weasel deceived other researchers to find out where the secret site was and then stole it from other researchers and claimed it for his own. It was here at this Nordegg site that Jeff Meldrum saw what may have been his first Sasquatch walking across a clearing in the middle of the night.
A lot of people say I am full of it, but I wrote about this site for a long time, describing approximately where it was. I also told the story about how Todd stole the site from other researchers and how it was now his site. Then Stroud goes out to Nordegg, Canada with Todd Standing, presumably to the AHS. So all of my reporting on the AHS has been vindicated as true!
I haven’t watched this episode yet, but if you want to see some real footage of the AHS, here it is!
The terrible tale of the Alberta Massacre! Some absolutely shocking news from Todd Standing. As noted above, Todd has finally had a good habituation site after all these years. The nice thing about that is that now that Todd has a nice site, he doesn’t have to hoax anymore. Why hoax when you have a great Sasquatch habituation site sitting right at your heels. Why bother? I am not sure what sort of work Todd has been able to do out there, but he did bring Survivorman out for a couple of episodes and he also brought Jeff Meldrum out. It was on this occasion that Meldrum saw what may have been his first Sasquatch.
Now the stunning word in from Standing is that most of the Sasquatches at the AHS have been killed! A source reports that Todd said recently that he was out there at the AHS one night when some military helicopters flew in with guns blazing away. They flew around for some time firing their machine guns at the forest below, and then they flew away. Todd said after that, most of the Sasquatches were gone except for one young male who had become very shy. The assumption was that somehow the Canadian military had killed a number of the Sasquatches with helicopter-mounted machine guns.
If it’s true, it’s an incredible story, up there with the Sierra Kills. First the Sierra Kills, next the Alberta Massacre! If anyone has any more information about this incident, please contact me.
I would like to say that it is my personal opinion that the militaries in North America may do this from time to time. I believe that some Sasquatches become nuisances, possibly due to excessive aggression or killing and eating people (Hello David Paulides). In these cases, I believe the military may be called out to kill the problem Sasquatch. Unfortunately, I have no evidence to prove this, and it is just a hunch on my part.
If this is occurring, it would be nice if we could gather some evidence about it. I am aware of one incident where a Sasquatch was seen in a national forest. I forget the details. Anyway, the witness said that soon after the Sasquatch was seen, a US forest service helicopter was flying low over the forest where the Sasquatch was seen firing a machine gun. The exact same scenario that Todd reports here.
Of course, Todd has a history of hoaxing going back some time now, from his stupid Tiki doll puppets to his made-up lie about “Sylvanic,” the secret valley that does not exist that he accessed through a hole in a mountain where he was attacked by Sasquatches one night around his campfire. There is even a video of this made-up incident out there that you can watch.
Well, Todd is a filmmaker and filmmakers, well, they make films! So Todd likes to make movies. And he has quite an imagination.
However, Todd gets mixed up between fiction and nonfiction and what really happened and what didn’t. This nonsense leads to lots of unnecessary confusion, and it’s borderline immoral if not worse. Blair Witch Project anyone? How about Megamouth Shark? How about fakeumentaries?
I figure there is way too much lying masquerading as truth these days as it is without throwing in all this fakeumentary garbage. What’s the point? Don’t we get lied to enough all day long in this idiotic country? As it is, if you want to be informed, you have to spend about half your day figuring which of what you got told today were lies and which were facts. It’s not easy at all to disentangle them, and it’s very annoying to say the least that we have to play Lie Detector all day long anyway. I thought this was some great “democracy?” If it’s this great democracy, then why do we get lied to all day? Huh? Riddle me that.
Anyway I doubt if Todd made this up, as he stopped hoaxing as soon as he finally got a real habituation site if not before. Now Todd had this nice comfy habituation site, one of the best in North America, with a number of Sasquatches that I was told “aren’t going anywhere.” In other words, they were not going to leave the AHS barring extreme circumstances.
So I doubt if they up and left. So if they are still there, why make up a story about them getting killed? Why not stay out there and study them? I guess you could say that they left for some other reason, so Todd made up this massacre lie. But I was told that these Sasquatches were not going anywhere for much of any reason. So they didn’t leave. But they’re not there, otherwise Todd would still be studying them. So where did they go? Well, they didn’t leave as I said. So maybe they did get killed.
Todd suffers from Boy Who Cried Wolf Syndrome like a number of other researchers. It’s a real problem when you shoot some real stuff, then you hoax, then you shoot some more real stuff. People see you hoaxing and write off everything you did. Todd’s a jerk for hoaxing in the first place, but I think this story may be true.
Finally, a new Bigfoot news! This long awaited edition will consist only of some very interesting photos that I have found, including one from Fallbrook, California which is being presented to the public for the very first time. Hopefully, I will have another edition coming out soon with more photos and some text too because I definitely have a few things to write about.
I really think I have writer’s block about these Bigfoot posts. I always say I am going to write one, and then I never do it for some reason. I think I associate them with a lot of anxiety due to all the Hellish controversy they inevitably spawn from the semi-human inhabitants of this ghastly field of Earthly Hellions and assorted lowlifes, cranks, fools, idiots, out and out jerkoffs, loudmouths and belligerent know-nothings.
This photo was submitted to me by a regular housewife from Fallbrook, California who knew nothing whatsoever about Sasquatches and didn’t even necessarily believe in them. It would be hard to find a more naive submitter. She took a photo of her daughter, and when they went to look at the photo, there was what appeared to be a Sasquatch in the background. This happens so many times. She also sent me another photo of the same area, and the Sasquatch looking object was not there.
Do these things make themselves invisible to the photographer somehow (by cloaking?) but somehow they are not invisible to the camera? In other words, you can’t see them with the naked eye for some reason but the camera can pick them up? It might make sense because a camera is not an eyeball. Yes, they both see things, but you eye is an organ in your body that has one way of seeing things, and your camera is a mechanical object that uses a different way of seeing things than your eye uses. Cameras surely do not have irises, optic nerves and an occipital sector in their memory bank.
She was dumbfounded as to what this creature was. She said she was going to France for vacation but would be back in a while. She also said that her dogs had been acting very strange recently, and no one could figure out why. She described the land in the background as “wasteland.” As you can see, the Sasquatch is frozen in some sort of leaning over position. I cannot tell you how many photos I have seen where these things freeze like this. I suppose it is one of their ways of sort of going invisible when they feel they have been seen (freezing). A lot of mammals (and even insects) freeze when spotted by a potential predator. It is a classic means of predator defense to freeze in place.
This is one of the greatest Sasquatch photos that have come out recently. Randles runs a tip-top shape outfit called the Olympic Project. He is a bit controversial in the field, but one thing I know about him is that he is absolutely above hoaxing in any way, shape or form. And the team has some quite professional procedures that they follow. They even have a forensic guy, Rich Germeau, a police officer. Germeau is a very nice guy. I have spoken with him. All in all, I would say that Randles, despite a bit of controversy around him, is one of the best and most ethical people in the field today.
The Olympic Project got a call about suspected Sasquatch activity on the property of an elderly couple who lived on the Olympic Peninsula. It’s hard to say whether they believed in these things before all manner of weirdness began happening on their property. Anyway, they were baffled, and called in the Olympic Project to investigate. The team worked the site for a while and at some point, they set up a night vision camera in a spot and left it on for the night.
There are cows visible in some of the video because the owners run some cattle on their property. Skeptards have been dismissive of this video simply because of the presence of cows! How ridiculous. When the team went back to review the footage later, they saw this obviously alive object peeking over the ridge in the direction of the camera. We know it is alive because it is lit up by the infrared camera, and only living things light up the camera.
The skeptards were once again contemptuously dismissive, and a lot of them claimed the object was obviously a raccoon. Well in that case, it is a raccoon that is quite a bit larger than a man!
It’s not a raccoon. And the shape of the image very much resembles a Sasquatch, which is what the couple suspected was on their property.
It’s not a raccoon, no. As you can see in the blowup above, you can make out the shape of a human shaped living object with two eyes, a nose and a mouth. The eyes, nose and mouth are all a lot larger than those of a human. Note also the wide shoulders, maybe 40 inches wide. No human has shoulders that wide. Note also the lit up area around the breasts. I strongly suspect that this creature, like Patty, is a female.
Here is a comparison shot with a human standing in the same place that the Sasquatch was standing in the photo. As you can see with the superimposition, the human shaped creature is quite a bit larger than the man used as a comparison prop. And it’s no raccoon, unless it’s a raccoon as big as a gorilla.
Ok, then maybe it was a man in a suit. Well first of all, who put a man in a suit out there? Randles doesn’t hoax. This naive elderly couple is sneaking around in a suit in the middle of the night so they can pull off a Bigfoot hoax? Get real. Furthermore, it can’t be a man in a suit because suits cannot expand the size of the human body. Note the size of the body as lit up by the infrared. Your body is as big as it is, no matter what sort of over-fitting suit you put on. The biggest suit around doesn’t make your body any larger, and the suit doesn’t show up on infrared. Only living entities and their components light up on infrared.
Once again, it’s a raccoon. A raccoon the size of Andre the Giant. Uh huh. This is actually the argument by the “science” side that this photo is not real. The “science” guys say it’s a raccoon. An eight foot tall, 800 pound raccoon. So much for “science.”
The lame skeptard argument here is that either Stacy or his father ran through the deep woods of Florida in the middle of the night without a flashlight extremely fast and using the exact same gait as a Sasquatch does. But humans cannot reproduce the gait or a Sasquatch. It can’t be done. No one can do it. And the Browns are not hoaxers. Stacy Brown is a bit of a controversial figure, but he is no hoaxer, and neither is his father. If you see the original video, this thing is running incredibly fast. How does a human run in the deep woods with no flashlight? It doesn’t. It doesn’t run at all. People cannot run fast in the middle of a thick forest at night with no flashlight. Not possible.
Note also the superimposition of an infrared photo of a human taken in the same where the original was taken imposed on the photo. Look at how much larger the object is than a human. That thing is lit up by infrared on Flir. Even if you put a massively over-fitting suit on, you still can’t light up your body any larger on infrared because the suit won’t show up on infrared. Only your body will. You could put a suit as big as a Volkswagen on, and assuming you did not suffocate in it, your image would not show up in infrared any larger than your body.
This is one of Meldrum’s favorites. That thing sure is fast. The skiiers seem pretty naive.
Let’s see. The skiiers got their friend to put on a monkey suit, no wait, carry a monkey suit up that very steep hill in the deep snow (How does he do that even?) up to the top of that ridge and then put that monkey suit on and run extremely fast through 2-3 feet deep snow. How does anyone do that?
Furthermore, the thing is only there for 2-3 seconds. Why would anyone hoax for 2-3 seconds? Hoaxes usually last a lot longer than that.
I have no idea what in the Hell that thing is, but that is one of the most out and out freakiest and most disturbing crypto photos I have ever seen. It has a dead animal draped over its shoulders. Why would a hoaxing human kill a big animal and hang it over this shoulders to hoax a what? A Dogman video. A Dogman video? What the Hell is a Dogman? No one has even heard of these things? Who ever hoaxed a Dogman video? No one did ever. Most people don’t even think they exist, including me (sort of).
And look at the way that freaky thing looks. Someone made a Dogman costume? What? Who did that and why? No one has ever made a Dogman costume. No such costume is known to exist. Anyway, most people don’t have the faintest idea of what these freaky things even look like.
How many people sling dead animals over their shoulder to make Bigfoot hoax videos? No one does ever.
Ok, these things are just way too frightening. Sasquatches vary in their temperament, with maybe 75% being pretty easy-going, another 20% being pretty mean and bad-tempered and maybe 3-4% being what experts call “pure evil.” Sort of like humans, right?
But what we hear about these Dogman freaks is that 100% of them are stone evil to the core. There are even reports that they have murdered humans by ripping them to shreds. There is a report out of Appalachia of a Dogman invading a camper parked at a lake and killing everyone in it by tearing them to shreds. Sheriffs came out later but called it a homicide (by a human). Know any killers that rip human beings to shreds? Neither do I. I don’t mind Sasquatches, but I must say that I hate these Dogmen. Kill em all. Let God sort em out.
Ok, that’s weird. This has supposedly been debunked by the skeptards, and almost everyone believes their verdict. The verdict is that that weird object (once again frozen – note that it is frozen in the exact same pose as the Fallbrook creature above) is a cow. Yes, a cow. Isn’t that lame? Well folks, science has spoken, and that creature in that photo is a cow. That’s right, a cow. Does that look like a cow too you? Me either. But hey, science has spoken folks, so the debate is over, science being infallible and all that. All bow down to the Great God of Science!
This is a cool video. The guy who shot is some good old boy who went hunting one day. He had no idea what this is, so he put it up on Youtube saying what the Hell is this? It’s a Skunk Ape. A skunk ape is just a Sasquatch. That’s the name for the ones that live in the Deep South. Look at the shape of the hands on that thing. Those hands are not human. Ever seen a Bigfoot hoax with hands like that? Me either.
See that sheen glowing off the coat of that thing? That means it’s real fur on a real living object. The sheen is from the oils on your skin. They come to the surface and give animals’ coats a sheen in the sun. No hoaxer has ever been able to reproduce this sheen. Actually, they never even try. Furthermore, I have seen many costumes that our Glorious Special Effects Gods have made, and I haven’s one single costume that had a sheen like this on its coat visible in the sun.
But these Special Effects Gods can do anything, right? No really, they can. Go ask them. They can make a costume that perfectly reproduces any living thing on Earth. No really. I’m not kidding. They all say this. All of them, arrogant-as-Hell bunch that they are. And the vast majority of people believe the Special Effects Liars when they say this. One born every day.
The skeptard argument about this one is truly stupid. This very old couple, who have a vacation home far out in the wilds of Ontario, somehow hoaxed this video! These are old people, in their 70’s. There’s nothing weird about them. Everyone says they are upstanding folks. But an elderly couple in their 70’s hoaxed a Bigfoot video! Never mind that has never happened. There’s never been one case of an elderly couple doing a Bigfoot hoax, but no matter. Science has spoken, folks! Listen up, the Almighty God of Science has spoken, and the scientific fact is that these old people hoaxed this Bigfoot video.
Look at the very weird way that thing looks. I have seen another photo of a Sasquatch from Ontario and it looks exactly like this one, with the deep-set eye-holes and the very tall domed head. Note the philtrum. That head does not even have human proportions. See those eye holes? The hoaxer goofs have never reproduced that, probably because they never even try. And I’ve never seen a face as good as that one, with a philtrum no less.
That face is way too large for a human. How does a human put on such a large mask and still retain the obvious bone and muscle structure that one can obviously see in the shot. You can’t. A mask too large for your face, if it would even stay on, would droop all over the place and would look very fake. Plus it would probably be falling off all the time if it was way too big for your head like that. And your eyes would not fit in the eye holes, your nose would not fit in the nose protuberance, and your mouth would not fit in the mouth hole. Look at that wild fur. There is another shot of this bizarre creature that shows this fur in much wilder shape. That photo was taken by the same couple. It is a back shot.
The back story. The couple lives part time way out in nowhere in Temangami, Ontario. Temangami means “way out in the sticks so far no one ever goes there.” Or something. Well, that’s what it means to me anyway. The couple were hearing a lot of weird noises, and apparently they started taking some photos of the area outside of the cabin.
One argument is that this is Photoshopped, but very good Ontario researchers did a good job of thoroughly investigating this couple and concluded that they were not hoaxing. Furthermore, it’s not Photoshopped because the photos were still in the camera when the investigator came out to look at the case. Anyway, since when does some ordinary couple in their 70’s have such advanced Photoshop skills that they can make a Bigfoot hoax with Photoshop? And you can’t use Photoshop if the file is still in the camera. Photoshop doesn’t work on images that reside only inside of cameras.
I believe once again, the couple thought they were just taking photos of the outside of their cabin, and they only saw the Sasquatch when they were reviewing the photos in the camera. How many times do we hear this? What the Hell is going on?
Yep, it’s a gorilla all right. Look closely at the head, face and especially ears. He sure fooled a lot of people though. I am pretty mad at this idiot though because hoaxes are not funny, and the hoaxing ruins this whole field of research because we have to sift through all sorts of hoaxed crap to find anything real. Further, it throws up the spectre of “hoax” in front of every bit of evidence that we have. So far, “science” has proven that 100% of the voluminous evidence for the existence of Sasquatches is all nothing but hoaxes. Thank God for science! Science to the rescue again!
That thing is massive, and if you see the video, it moves in a very bizarre way that does not even seem human. But I have seen other Sasquatch photos and videos with this exact same bizarro movement going on, which I cannot describe here in words.
Also the video is very poor quality. Why would anyone make a hoax of such awful quality? That makes no sense. All known hoaxes are clear as air. That’s the purpose of the hoax. A hoax with very poor visual quality doesn’t even work as a hoax. Hoaxes must be clear, or they are useless.
Look at the size of that damn thing. It looks like a gorilla! These things are not gorillas or even apes anymore than we are, but it’s quite common for people who get a quick look at one to describe them as gorillas. I remember one famous photo out of Maine where a Sasquatch was raiding an apple tree. In that case, the man who owned the property where the photo was taken said he had spoken to some people who asked him if there was a traveling zoo in the area because the man said he saw a gorilla run across the road. Another man fishing on a lake said he saw a gorilla by the shore of the lake. So you see these things are often mistaken for gorillas, which they superficially represent.
The photo is a female Sasquatch kneeling down in front of the motion activated camera. There is apparently a baby Sasquatch hanging onto her back, but that’s what the babies do – they hang onto the backs of the mothers.
See the famous Memorial Day footage of an adolescent female Sasquatch running across a field, picking up a baby halfway, and putting it on her back. The baby rides on her back for most of the rest of the run until it gets up on her shoulders.
I am reposting this classic post because it continues to get linked around a lot, and a lot of you have probably never read it and you might get a kick out of it. I have no idea if this story is true or not, but it has a lot of obscure details, and there are quite a few other Indian stories along the same lines. Whether its true or not, it sure is a great story! Wouldn’t this story make a good movie? The original story, which is actually much better written than my version, is here.
The giants in the story appear to be Bigfoots.
Choctaw territory in Indian Territory was in SE Oklahoma, which is Ground Zero for Bigfoots in Oklahoma.
Interesting story. The Bigfoots (only referred to here as the giants) had been raiding human settlements on SE Oklahoma and Arkansas for some time, mostly stealing vegetables. They had also been stealing human children and apparently eating them. A Choctaw search party was organized, led by Joshua LeFlore.
This man actually existed. He was born in the Choctaw Nation in 1797 and died in Indian Territory in 1855. So apparently this story, if it is true, is from 1855. It must be later than 1838 because Indian Territory was only established in that year. It references Arkansas, and that state was let in in 1836. There was not yet a state of Oklahoma, not to come into being until 1907. So the story must have taken place from 1838-1907.
A hunting party tracks the Bigfoots down and finds a giant mound with the bodies of 19 human children the Bigfoots have been kidnapping and eating. The Bigfoots are covered in hair, and the bad smell of their shit and piss is everywhere. Most of the humans’ horses rear up and throw their riders, which is what horses do when they see Bigfoots.
The humans attack the Bigfoots, and LeFlore empties his revolver at one, but it’s useless. The Bigfoot kills LeFlore’s mount with a single blow and then tears off LeFlore’s head. The rest of the Indians open up with .50 caliber Sharp’s buffalo rifles (designed to drop a buffalo) on the beasts, from experience aiming at their heads, as this is the best way to kill them. Two Bigfoots drop. A Choctaw Indian hunts down LeFlore’s killer and finishes it off with a hunting knife. Then he decapitates it for good measure.
The Indians bury what’s left of the kids, then bury their leader, giving him a 21 gun salute. Then they make a bonfire and burn the Bigfoots on the fire. They ride home, heading for bad dreams, maybe lasting a lifetime.
Wild story! The giants certainly seem like Bigfoots. Many Indian tribes describe Bigfoots as highly aggressive, stealers of men, women and even children. Young women were apparently taken for mates. Bigfoots would descend on Indian villages with whistles before raining rocks down on the Indians.
Many Western tribes describe areas of their territory that were totally off limits, and the Indians refused to go there, for these were the territories of the Bigfoots. These territories were full of game, but the Indians were so terrified that they avoided them like the plague. Why would Indians avoid a forage-rich area area due to creatures that don’t even exist?
Probably the Bigfoots were more aggressive against Indians because the Indians did not have good methods for killing them. Power comes from the barrel of a gun after all. Bigfoots are highly intelligent and appear to have a language. Our guns are very powerful, much more powerful than the Indians’ weapons. Bigfoots have probably learned to fear and respect us due to our weaponry, and that is why they are much more pacifistic than they were in the Indian era and even during the early era of White settlement of the West.
Most animals figure out who the apex predator is and leave it alone. In North America, humans are the apex predator par excellance. I would imagine that most animals figure this out at some point, or there is some race memory due to genetic selection. For instance, grizzly bears that are highly aggressive are rapidly killed by humans, and the surviving bears that pass on genes are the most passive and avoidant ones.
There is a precedent for stealing children. During times of famine in Africa, chimpanzees are known to raid human villages, steal human babies and eat them.
Who knows if the story is true, but it sure is cool!
If you think this website is valuable to you, please consider a contribution to support the continuation of the site.
Brave Hunter Films Massive Bigfoot! Utah 2015. This video is getting ripped to pieces by the skeptards, but I am going to go out on a limb and say that I really do think this is a Sasquatch. It doesn’t move like a man. No man can move like that. It’s not possible.
Do you see how it goes down on all fours a few times? See how many times it hides behind trees and peeks from behind them (tree peaking). Notice how it moves through the forest like a cross-country skier, gliding as it walks? Humans can’t walk like that. Also look at how it gracefully goes up-down, up-down when it walks. Humans don’t walk like that, nor can they.
Notice also the way it grabs trees and brush as it moves through the forest, using the foliage almost as one might use ski poles? That’s how they move through the woods. At one point in the video, you can clearly see that that thing has no damned neck! Furthermore, its shoulders are simply massive.
And a number of times you can see its head and face in profile. Look at the bone structure of that face. That’s not a human face. Human faces are not shaped like that, and you can’t put a monkey mask on that gives your face a different shape. Have we seen a Bigfoot hoax yet with a mask so fancy that it actually changes the shape of the wearer’s face?
It has a browridge. A coned head. How many hoaxes have we seen with coned heads and bony browridges? Notice the weird way it walks hunched over. That’s not a human being. Humans don’t walk like that.
In addition, I have seen so many videos of these damned things by now that I can almost spot a Sasquatch half a mile away blindfolded. They have a certain profile about the bodies. It takes many different forms, but I keep seeing those forms over and over. And no human has a body profile that looks like that, nor can they fake one.
That’s also real fur. You can see that in the very beginning of the video when the sun is shining on the object.
Also if that is a guy in a monkey suit and a mask, there is no way he could move through the woods that fast. Also the mask is going to get so hot towards the end of the video that he is going to have to take it off or else he is going to die.
The hunter’s reaction has been criticized, with people saying that he seems calm. Like Hell he does. You can hear him breathing hard right from the start of the video. He’s hyperventilating. You don’t breathe like that when you are calm.
First video evidence of a Sasquatch at the Alberta Habituation Site! In the video below, we see an episode of Survivorman where Survivorman is looking for Sasquatches up in Todd Standing’s research area, which is the Alberta Habituation Site (wherever precisely that might be) last time I checked. I am pretty out of the loop with regards to the AHS, though I have sent a couple of guys out there looking for it. I definitely know the general area of the site within 25 miles or so.
Anyway, whether or not Todd is still at the site, I know for a fact that the Survivorman episodes where Survivorman is romping around searching for Sasquatches with Todd Standing were absolutely filmed at the AHS in the last couple of years.
This footage is fascinating. Apparently at the time the video was shot, neither Todd nor Survivorman had any idea that a Sasquatch was spying on them in the distance of the footage.
In fact, it was not until the footage aired on live TV that viewers looking closely at the footage noted what appeared to a Sasquatch spying on Todd and Survivorman from a couple hundred yards in the background. Todd and Survivorman apparently had no idea that this Sasquatch was in the footage until the episode aired on TV! This makes me think that there is no way that this is another Todd Standing hoax.
If it’s a hoax, how come Todd even know about it himself? And why would Todd secretly put a hoaxed guy in a monkey suit in the footage and not tell anyone about it? Todd’s too much of a narcissist and a loudmouth. If he thought there was as Sasquatch in his footage, he would be yelling so loud you could hear him in outer space.
Anyway, my last sources in Canada told me that the word is that Todd is done with hoaxing. There’s no need to hoax anymore, as he has a primo habituation site with real live Sasquatches running around. So why hoax?
Todd Standing’s Early Sasquatch Video. Yes, this is one of the famous ones that people talk about a lot, but you hardly ever see it. Before Todd started hoaxing the world with his made-up stories about the Land of the Lost in British Colombia (a place you can only get to by tunnel) where he was surrounded by Sasquatches one night in his camp. Remember Todd made a movie out of that?
Before Todd’s infamous Tiki dolls that fooled so many otherwise sane people. Remember the puppets made of Todd’s face morphed into a monkey man by his special effects artist sister?
Yes, before then, Todd shot 2-3 very blurry early videos that caused a lot of controversy. In the case of this one (possibly the first video), I think that is actually a real Sasquatch. For one thing, that looks like real fur, not a costume.
Anyway, that slope on the other side is so remote and steep that I don’t understand how the guy in the monkey suit even climbed the mountain in the first place. And that does look like a Sasquatch. And it moves like one. And the people filming seem genuinely excited (rapid breathing, etc.) Anyway, I do think Todd got one here.
Frightened farmer films massive Bigfoot. North Georgia 2015. Another new one, and yes, I like it a lot. Look at the way it glides through the forest. Look at the way it moves backwards to get behind that tree. Look at how huge it is when it finally stands up. Doesn’t it remind you of that Provo, Utah Sasquatch filmed by the college kids camping out for the weekend?
Notice it has no neck. Notice the coned heard. Note the massive body. I also believe once again that this is real fur, not a costume. And yes, you can tell the difference. There are certain things about real fur that have been impossible to replicate with costumes. And there are a couple of other things that the hoaxers never get right that I will not reveal.
Bigfoot Caught on Fisherman’s Video. I like this one too. Another new one from 2015. The fisherman didn’t notice it at the time, and he only saw the Sasquatch after he got home and was looking at the footage. I also think that is real fur, not a costume. The costume makers have never gotten the fur thing right because they can’t.
Melba Ketchum’s DNA results independently replicated by another scientist! I ran this one a while back based on a video Melba made in which she said another team had replicated her results, but I did not know the details on it. I also said that another “scientific team” replicated the results because that’s how I understood the story. However now that I have more details, I can report that it was not an actual scientific team; instead it was simply another scientist who sequenced the genome on his own in his own lab based on Melba’s data.
The other scientist’s name is Dr. David Swenson, and he is a very famous geneticist along the lines of the rather infamous Dr. Sykes in the UK. Swenson is not as famous as Sykes, but who is? And how famous are even the most famous geneticists? Walk up to the average person on the street and ask them to name a famous geneticist. I bet they cannot name even one.
Anyway, Swenson is pretty well known in the scientific geneticist community because he was the first person to sequence the genome of the Staph Aureus bacteria. He has authored over 125 peer-reviewed papers in scientific genetics journals. That is a very impressive record.
Swenson was interviewed by Joe Rogan in the video below. Now what Swenson did was he took Ketchum’s raw data and sequenced the genome himself based on that. He focused on a single chromosome, chromosome 13.
He was able to completely replicate Ketchum’s results based on just looking at that one chromosome. He said it had a mix of human and nonhuman characteristics. He described it as a hybrid, and he said that at one time, some other creature must have bred with a human being (he felt that the other creature had to be a male, and it had to breed with a human female).
Rogan, incredulous, asked if it was possible that the results were faked by Ketchum. Swenson shook his head and said “You can’t fake DNA. There’s no way to do it. DNA is DNA.” As Swenson notes, this Sasquatch genome contains much genetic material that is completely unknown to man. You can’t fake that. You can’t make up new genetic sequences. There’s no way to do it. It’s utterly irrational, and it’s not even possible.
This however is the argument that the retards in our community (99% of the Bigfoot community is retarded) have been making. Yes, that is their argument: Ketchum faked the results.
The other retarded argument that they make is that the results were contaminated, but Ketchum has conclusively proved that the results were not contaminated. Anyway, even if they were contaminated, you would not get a result like this.
If, say, the results of the Sasquatch samples were really of bears, contamination would result in a finding of human + bear. So even if Ketchum’s material was contaminated, the results would just be horse + human, bear + human, racoon + human, etc. You follow? So the contamination argument is about as retarded as the hoaxing argument.
At one point, Swenson said, “There is an unknown mammal in the Pacific Northwest.” A stunned Rogan again asked Swenson later in the interview, “So is this proof that Bigfoot is real?” Swenson started to answer but stopped himself. He paused a bit and said, “Well it seems like it is, but as a scientist, I will not believe these things are real until one tries to bite my hand off.” In other words, Swenson is so incredulous of his own results that he still wants a body.
Unbelievably, the few skeptards who have heard about this new evidence from Dr. Swenson have mockingly laughed it off once again. They don’t care. They simply do not believe these things exist no matter how great evidence we throw in their faces. They, like 85% of the US public and nearly 100% of the scientific community, will not believe us until we show them a body.
All of their arguments about “no credible evidence” are crap. We have excellent video and photos that cannot be faked.
We have over 40,000 documented sightings including some by scientists, university and college professors, psychologists, police officers, wildlife biologists (we have several from them), park rangers, firefighters, forestry officials, and medical professionals. The skeptards laugh all of this off mockingly and say that all of these people are either lying, hallucinating or seeing other things and confusing them with Sasquatches. That argument is so preposterous that it is stupid, but this this is the received knowledge, believe it or not.
We have audio recordings that cannot be faked, hair, scat, footprints, handprints and recently teethmarks. Apparently all of this is either from other animals se we faked it. Recently we even acquired blood and even tissue. And now on top of all of that, we have have good hard genetic evidence. And still they laugh us off. What more do we have to do to prove these things exist to these folks?
Incidentally, Swenson, like so many other well credentialed believers, said that before he sequenced this genome, he had thought that Bigfoot was a hoax or a fraud. He no longer believes that.
Rick Dyer fails to come through. Dyer released two interesting videos recently, supposedly part of a three-part series on the San Antonio shooting incident, in which he apologized for all of his shenanigans and asked forgiveness of everyone for his endless bad behavior. This is par for the course for Rick, and it is nothing new.
He also explained in detail what happened on September 6, 2012 when he allegedly shot and killed a Bigfoot in San Antonio, Texas. This is also interesting, however since Rick has not yet offered any evidence that he committed this deed, this video was not very important in that sense either.
However, he did say one thing that I thought was very interesting. He said that all of the remaining footage that was cut out of Morgan Matthews’ Shooting Bigfoot movie will be released in a new edition of the movie to appear on TV in December. He said that this remaining footage would prove conclusively that he shot and killed a Bigfoot on that day.
The fact that he was so matter of fact about it and attributed the coming footage to Matthews instead of himself is what caught my eye. I doubt if Rick is making this up off the top of his head. First of all, Rick has never been proven to have told one single lie yet about Morgan Matthews, nor has he made any wild and false predictions about him.
All of this makes me think that the release of the remaining footage by Matthews’ film company Minnow Films has at the very least been discussed if not actually planned and authorized.
It is notoriously hard to get Matthews to make any sort of statement about much of anything, and he has said very little about this movie other than some odd and cryptic statements.
Further and most spectacularly, he has refused to deny Rick’s charges that a Bigfoot was shot and killed in the filming of the movie or that those are actual Bigfoots running around in the footage at the end of the film. This makes no sense at all, and the skeptards as usual have absolutely no explanation for Matthews’ behavior whatsoever except to moronically accuse him of being a hoaxer.
Well, here it is January, December has come and gone, nd nothing happened. It would be very nice if Rick is telling the truth and we could see the rest of the footage that was cut out of Shooting Bigfoot and even nicer if it lent credence to Rick’s continuing claim that he shot a Bigfoot that day in Texas.
Rick also said that the Bigfoot body exists, but he has never had possession of it as the investors took possession of it immediately. He also promised that “this will all come out one day” and that the body would one day appear in public. I believe that if this event occurred, it makes sense that the investors immediately took control of the body.
Furthermore, Rick’s wildly dishonest behavior and scamming for a couple of years after the purported shooting makes sense if he never had the body in his possession. Let’s say the body was never in his possession. What would Rick do, being Rick Dyer? Pretend he had it and run around scamming people about the fake body for as long as he could milk money out of the con job, right? Well of course. After all, Mr. Dyer is an excellent con artist.
Nevertheless, it is important to note that there is still no good hard evidence the Rick killed a Bigfoot that night, although I believe there is excellent evidence that there were two Bigfoots running around in the woods there that eve, one running away from Rick and the other slapping down Morgan.
There is also excellent evidence that Rick was shooting live bullets at that thing with a real gun as per Matthews’ statement confirming those facts. The creature that Rick was shooting at was obviously a Bigfoot, as it could not be anything else. And it really does look like he shot the thing as evidenced by the moan we can hear in the movie. But did he kill it? This is what we don’t know. I would say that there is pretty good evidence that he wounded it though.
Also the thing that swats down Matthews, knocking him out with one mere slap of the land (!?) absolutely has to be a Bigfoot because there is no way that could possibly be a mask or a costume.
Furthermore, keep in mind that both of those things are running around in the woods at night with no flashlights! How does a human stunt man in a monkey suit do that?
So from Shooting Bigfoot, there is excellent evidence that the following things are true:
The things that are yet unknown and unproven are:
In other words, what we are dealing here with the San Antonio Bigfoot story is once again another Bigfoot body story, of which there have been quite a few down through the years.
So far, good hard evidence of any of these bodies has been lacking, though some of the stories are quite intriguing. It is interesting that in all of these cases, hard proof of the existence of a body has not been forthcoming, yet nevertheless, skeptics have presented absolutely zero evidence that any of the body stories are untrue, frauds or hoaxes other than Rick’s two fake Bigfoot bodies.
We don’t know if any of these body stories are true. None have been proven, and yet none have been disproven either. As with so many things in life, it is simply completely up in the air whether any of the shooting and body stories are true.
In order for Rick to prove his claim, he is going to have to present more evidence in the form of:
So far, Dyer has failed to present us with this evidence. Until Rick can show us the monkey, this is just another wild Bigfoot story.
Great news! Melba Ketchum’s DNA results independently confirmed! Apparently another lab operating completely independently of Melba Ketchum’s group has independently confirmed her much-criticized results on Bigfoot DNA. Now we have two completely independent science groups who have replicated DNA for Bigfoots, first Ketchum’s and then Ketchum’s result was replicated by another group. Reportedly, the other team replicates Ketchum’s results in their entirety.
If you read me on here, you would know that I always said that Melba was right. In part that was due to my good friendship with Richard Stubstad, who assured me that Melba’s methods were good and that there was no way on Earth she would engage in scientific fraud. Also I know a scientist who ran all of her data and said that it looked out to him. Another scientist also run her DNA and said that all the results checked out. I told you so. You guys should listen to me? Why don’t you listen to me?
Best version of Prince Edward Island Bigfoot video ever released! After months of hard work, Nominay has just released the finest version of the PEI Bigfoot ever. This is a legendary Bigfoot film. An indie film producer was shooting a monster movie on Prince Edward Island. As one of the actors was running across a clearing, a Bigfoot suddenly ran out of the woods behind him to the right of the viewer.
The Bigfoot then races across the clearing, partly on two legs and partly on four, at an amazingly fast speed. The speed of the Bigfoot has been calculated and it is running as fast as a competitive sprinter. The speed is even maintained when it goes effortlessly on all fours. There is no way on Earth that a competitive sprinter could run that fast or go down on all fours without slowing up in a bulky monkey suit.
Furthermore, the size of the Bigfoot has been calculated at ~9 feet tall. It also appears to have a massive weight. How do you get a stunt actor to put on a bulky monkey suit, run across a clearing as fast as a competitive sprinter, go down on all fours without losing speed, all the while somehow being 9 feet tall. How do you find a 9 foot tall stunt man. How do you make a shorter stunt man appear to be 9 feet tall. How do you make this stunt man appear so bulky that he appears to weigh 700 pounds?
None of this makes any sense.
Of course, most Bigfoot footage released by indie film producers turns out to be hoaxed, usually in a sleazy attempt by the director to gain publicity for themselves. Many have been much less than forthcoming with investigators. The famous Redwood footage comes to mind. The director, now in film school, simply refuses to discuss the movie at all. It seems almost certain to be a hoax. And many of these film industry hoaxes come to light after a while; that is, the director fesses up that it was a hoax.
None of that seems to be the case with this video. The directors were apparently making cheap straight to video movies and have no need or desire for publicity. They have cooperated completely with investigators. Investigators felt that they were credible. The attitude of the filmmakers towards the even in the footage seems to be utter bafflement. They have no idea what ran across that clearing that day.
Nominay has improved this video so much that it is nearly a brand new video. All serious Bigfooters need to check this new video out.
The original version on Nominay’s fine site is here.
Bigfoot hairs for sale. I have a few Bigfoot hairs gathered in the Michigan Peninsula a while back. They look exactly like those crinkly, pubic hair-type hairs that Erickson collected for Melba’s project. I also have a photo that seems to prove that they are Bigfoot hairs. I used to have a similar photo of a human hair for comparison that showed that this hair is absolutely not a human hair. The only thing it remotely resembled is bear hair, but the hair is lighter brown and all of the bears in the UP have dark brown or black hair.
The man who sent it to me is a very good researcher and he spent a long time studying these hairs. He is quite an expert on Bigfoot hairs. Photo comes with it. I haven’t the faintest idea what to charge. Make offer.
2015: Science amidst the rubble. The response of the mainstream scientific community to Melba’s paper was simply despicable. They refused to even consider it, read it or see if the results were right or wrong. They dismissed it out of hand without even checking to see if the results were right or not.
I know some of the scientists and science writers who engaged in this nonsense, and they are very famous people. They all have Wikipedia entries and are considered top scientists in their field, mainly Paleontology. The science writer is one of the top science writers in the US. The fact that all of them simply dismissed this report out of hand shows us that something is horrifically wrong with science in the West.
Not only are almost all of the biggest scientific figures massive asshats, blowhards, and all-round horrible human beings, but the very structure of scientific inquiry itself seems to be compromised by a new mentality I call Scientific Fundamentalism.
Scientific Fundamentalism, which almost all modern scientists practice, elevates science into a religion itself. The revealed truths are whatever scientific consensus is. Anything attempting to overthrow consensus is treated as apostasy or heresy is in religion. I am surprised the scientists have not tried to kill some of the fringe science guys who are trying to topple these idiotic Edifices of Consensus.
Scientific consensus operates on the utterly insane notion that whatever the scientific consensus is at the moment, these are the facts for any and all of time. This once again is similar to religion in which the revealed facts in the holy books are true for all of time when they were written down and can never be changed, updated or modified.
I know, I know…
Scientists are always lying and saying that all scientific consensus is open to inquiry, that nothing is really true, that everything is just true for now, that all consensus is up for grabs and only a paper away from being toppled, and that science is all about perpetual doubt and endless inquiry. Those are their glorious mantras they repeat to make themselves look good but none of them are true.
But the truth is that all of this is lies. Scientific consensus is indeed treated as Truth with a capital t, and no it is not up for grabs, and no it’s not even just true for now. Go find some scientists and talk to them. Throw out some scientific consensuses and see how many are “true for now” and ready to be toppled at any time, if only disproving conclusions are presented. It’s about 0%.
Another fake mantra of scientists is all about perpetual doubt. Oh really now? And is scientific consensus open to being doubted? Are you kidding? Anyone who tries gets burned to death at one of their “empirical” witch trials. Is science really all about endless inquiry and curiosity? Hardly. When most consensus is walled off from further inquiry, and there’s nothing to be curious about anymore as the consensus has been proven true, there’s not a lot of curiosity or even inquiry going on in science anymore.
What is going on in science nowadays? A lot of conservatism. Granted a certain amount of conservatism is warranted, as we would not want rational science to be overrun with nutcases and their pseudoscientific nonsense. But scientists are already 100X more conservative than they need to be. Surely we could let up on the conservatism a bit and still be rigorous enough to keep the nonsense out?
There is also a serious problem with the abuse of the term pseudoscience. Pseudoscience is probably best described as scientific inquiry that does not even follow the scientific method. If a scientist uses proper method but simply comes up with false results by accident, overeagerness or misinterpretation, that’s hardly pseudoscience. He simply got the wrong result. Happens all the time. So what?
If a scientist is promoting a theory that seems to have good evidence yet the evidence is not yet of sufficient quality or quantity to convince the Vatican of Science, that’s hardly pseudoscience. A more proper term might be Fringe Science. The data and evidence have been assembled, hypotheses have been tested, studies have been undertaken, and conclusions have been reached, often in a high-quality manner. But it’s just not good enough for science, often because science has its eyes shut and its fingers in its ears. Just because science won’t accept the conclusions of something doesn’t mean it’s pseudoscience. And what of that term pseudoscience? Why such an arrogant, snide and vicious term? What’s the point of that? Are the scientists trying to start a war?
There is yet another problem with this loopy notion of pseudoscience for unproven theory. I am 100% certain, and I will swear over my dead body that I know for a fact that certain things that are now called pseudoscience are actually true. And you are reading a column about one of those things right now. These things simply exist, full stop, and it will be proven soon enough. There’s absolutely no doubt about that. If they exist, they will be revealed. There won’t be any way to stop that.
And when they are revealed, then what? Then automagically “pseudoscience” gets elevated to proven scientific fact. There’s something wrong with that model right there. Pseudoscience ought to be the realm of the wreckage of theory, hypotheses and inquiries that are bad more because they are not following scientific model than anything else.
Anything in pseudoscience should be so bizarre, idiotic or unscientific that it could never make it to proven fact. When you start having “pseudoscientific” theory elevated to proven fact, you’ve got an awful problem with your whole notion of pseudoscience, and you need to send it back for a rewrite or trash it all together.
Yet another problem is that modern scientists have turned into Douchebags with a capital d. Practitioners of modern science are some of the meanest, most vicious and downright evil people out there. This petty evil-mindedness stems completely from pride and from nothing else. Science has decided to invest its very self when arrogance such that the two are one and the same. To be a scientist nowadays is to be an arrogant ass. Humble scientist is an oxymoron.
Scientists behave this way supposedly because they are “waging war” against some Evil Entity called Pseudoscience. In order to put on battle gear to fight this war against Existential Evil, many scientists have armed themselves with vast amounts of Douchebaggery. What’s the point of that? Why be a Douchebag?
Yet when it comes to Fringe Science (a valid subfield of science by the way) we see scientific Assholery around the globe, from sea to scientific sea, from snide lab workers to snarling university professors to sneering lecture circuit celebrities. I am having a hard time understanding this. This war against the Evil of Pseudoscience is so important that in order to fight it, scientists must act like the worst people on Earth and engage in behavior that is low, depraved, disgusting and even embarrassing? Why? Is it really that important?
We have yet another problem and that is arrogance. Sooner rather than later, some of these “pseudoscientific” claims will become proven science. Do you think that even one of these scientific Beavis and Buttheads who nearly drove fringe scientists to nervous breakdown and suicide will apologize?
Are you kidding? Science is now the realm where arrogance crowned supreme. It’s worse than Hollywood. Even more appallingly, increasingly, science is Hollywood, and that’s probably the root of a lot of the problem right there. Once again we see a parallel to religion. Ever noticed how arrogant the believer is, how certain he is of his Truth. This is the way the scientist acts towards his precious Consensus.
What do you think will happen when, in the future, some of this pseudoscience is proven fact, which of course we know will happen with 100% certainty? Do you think even one of these strutting jerkoffs will apologize for even one second? Will you hear a single, “Hey, we were wrong. We’re really sorry about that. You guys were right along.”
We will never hear this. Not one scientist on the face of the Earth will ever say this to us. Why not? Because they’re not human enough. Science lost its human face some time past, and it’s gone all asshattery all the time for decades now. In order to practice mainstream science nowadays, first you must lose your humanity. That’s the first thing that has to go. We can’t have any of those measly, petty human emotions getting in the way or Revealed Scientific Truth, now can we?
btw any Bigfoot news?
The only real Bigfoot news out these days is this Mitch Townsend fellow and the bone piles he found. I think it is quite obvious that those are Sasquatch bone piles.
For one thing, at the Alberta Habituation Site, the Sasquatches were raiding the trapper’s traps, stealing the coyotes out of the traps and eating them. They would just plop down right next to the trap and eat that knaw the meat off those bones like it was a spare rib. So I know that they also knaw the meat right off bones. And I heard that in the back country of the AHS where they supposedly winter way back in the thickest, nastiest stuff you could imagine, there are all sorts of weird things like caves and lots of “piles of bones.” I had no idea what these bone piles were when I was told, but now with Townsend’s work, this is all starting to make sense.
Rick Dyer has released a couple of new videos that seem to tie up a lot of loose ends in his San Antonio Bigfoot story. He fesses up to all sorts of nefarious behaviors, seems to show remorse, and displays a wide range of emotions. I am not sure how sociopathic he is after all. I think he is just a narcissist.
You can find them on the Rick Dyer page on Youtube. You won’t find these videos interesting at all if you reject that theory that the Tent Video and Shooting Bigfoot footage show real Bigfoots, that Rick was shooting live bullets at a Bigfoot and may have even hit it, or that Morgan Matthews was slapped down by a Bigfoot in the movie. You certainly won’t like the video if you think he retained a body.
Melba Ketchum is working on the DNA for those weird conehead skulls found in Peru. I believe her hypothesis was that these were Amerindian skulls that had been reshaped via tooling. I am not sure what she has come up with.
Ketchum and David Paulides have supposedly completely dropped out of the Bigfoot game per their own statements. Particularly Paulides says he is done with Bigfoot and he is moving on. Paulides isn’t the most honest fellow around, and he isn’t telling the truth there either. The truth is that Paulides is continuing to do a lot of Bigfoot work under the cover of stating publicly that he is done with Bigfoot. Melba has not explicitly stated that she is done with Bigfoot, but she is mostly just lying low. I assure you that both of them are still very much in the game.
Paulides is now running a Kickstarter for a new 411 movie based on his 411 books. See, I told you he was still in the game.
Melba Ketchum and David Paulides never had any sort of romantic or dating relationship. I may have implied but not explicitly stated that in prior posts. That information came to me from the late Bobbie Short. We were talking about Paulides and Melba and Bobbie said, “That’s a couple, you know. They’re a couple. They’ve been dating for some time now.” I was shocked of course, but she insisted that it was true, and Bobbie tended to be right about things.
I recently talked to an anonymous source who knows both of them very well. This person insists that there has never been any romantic or sexual relationship between those two ever, and this person should know. Apologies to anyone who may have been offended by anything I may have implied.
As long as I am slinging National Enquirer type dirt about, I may as well speak well of the dead. Of course, the dead have no rights, so I can gossip away. One of these parties has now sadly passed on, but the other one is still kicking, very loudly in his usual foghorn voice.
By now all of you know that Bobbie Short and Peter Byrne were involved for a while, right? You don’t? Well listen up then. In fact, they were so involved that Byrne moved into Bobbie’s home in San Diego for a few years. So they were a couple for a while, and now you know. Go sell it to the tabloids. Bobbie once sighed and spoke to me of what she called “the narcissistic men” who crowded the Bigfoot field. No doubt she was speaking from personal experience then. My source for this dirt? Anonymous and impeccable, as usual.
Best wishes to Bobbie Short, wherever she may be.
Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been very tired and busy doing other things. I don’t get paid to write these updates, so they are low priority. Plus not much has been going on lately.
Major breaking new Bigfoot story! I am not sure if the other Bigfoot sites have covered this yet, but there is a huge breaking Bigfoot story out of Washington State. A college professor from the Continuing Education Program at Centralia College named Mitchel Townsend has been studying mysterious piles of bones that have been found in the Mount St. Helens area. The bones are those of prey animals that something has killed and eaten. Wild animals of any sort do not stack bones in piles. They usually scatter them all over the place. Bone stacking can only be done by a hominid.
But the great news is they have gnaw marks on them. The professor had the gnaw marks examined via forensic dentistry and the conclusion was that the bones had been gnawed on by some sort of a hominid. Not only that, but it seemed to be human because of the way it was gnawing on the bones. Furthermore, it left triangular imprints like hominids do, not the round imprints that apes leave.
No predator or tool markings were found on the bones and the local Fish and Wildlife scientists ruled out all natural predators known in the area.
After the first site found by the professor, his students found two more similar bone piles on the south side of Mt. St. Helens with the exact same characteristics. But at the two new sites, the team found huge 16 inch human like footprints. Calculations based on the prints and the stride indicated that the hominid had to be 8 feet, 8 inches tall. The footprints were wider and broader than human prints and lacked an arch.
“If you add it all up, you have an 8-foot, 8-inch tall creature that is killing animals at different areas of Mount St. Helens with its bare hands, chewing them up, literally skin and bones and all, and spitting them out between its legs,” Townsend said.
The tooth marks were incisors and canines and 90% of them were outside of the human range as they were too large to be from any possible human being. The bones also showed signs of bone peeling, which is only done by humans. The teeth had an odd double arch structure that closely resembled Neandertal teeth.
“My theory is it’s not an ape, it’s a hybrid that has been interbreeding with Native Americans for the last 80,000 years,” Townsend said. “That’s why it is so smart and it has human teeth.”
Right. Well, we always knew Bigfoots are not apes.
Townsend will publish his findings in a research paper and he challenged any scientist anywhere to prove him wrong.
“The evidence stands on its own, you prove the evidence wrong,” he said, adding that the bones would be made available for examination to any scientist who wanted to examine the remains. “We’ve put thousands of hours in this. We just want to give this to the world and the scientific community free of charge to add to the scientific body of knowledge.”
There are photos to go along with this story and I will see if I can dredge some up for you.
I understand that Matt Moneymaker of the BFRO has recently been diagnosed as having Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
But we already knew that, right?
The thing about NPD is that he is probably not going to get better. These people typically do not get better. The reason is because they do not want to get better. Generally, the problem is everyone else and not them. That right there is the essence of the disorder itself. So if you don’t think there is anything wrong with you, why would you want to get better? Another problem is that NPD’s usually enjoy being narcissistic. They get off on it. It’s fun. It’s the way they like to live. And they can’t see that it causes any problems or if it does, they don’t care because it’s too much fun to change and they like being that way.
There are some NPD’s that get into therapy. Therapy with them is typically difficult and long, but results can be achieved after some time.
More on the Rick Dyer claimed Bigfoot killing. This saga is continuing. Rick now claims that he and his team killed two Bigfoots at this location in Pennsylvania. You might want to head on over to Randy’s site, as he is keeping up on this story more than I am. I am not really interested in another one of these crazy Dyer stories, so I will just hand it over to Randy and let him take the ball. Randy insists it is another hoax, and indeed, every time Rick claims to have killed a Bigfoot, it ends up being a hoax. The best predictor of present behavior is past behavior. And Rick’s record in this regard does not inspire confidence. I have some photos below of Rick’s latest adventure.
However, Walter Shrum issued an angry video claiming that I lied when I quoted him in an interview I did with him. He said that that tarp over the Sasquatch was clear and not blue and he claimed that I accused him of saying it was a prop. I never accused Shrum of saying that. Mr. Shrum has problems with reading comprehension.
Walter Shrum interview. I would like to clarify what Shrum did say to me in his interview.
He stated that he, his wife and a grandson drove four hours to see the Sasquatch at Rick’s request. When they got there, the Sasquatch was wrapped in a tarp. Walter said it was the same blue tarp that you can see on Rick’s photos, but when you get up next to the tarp, it is actually more transparent than it seems on photos. He described it as semi-transparent. They were all issued surgeon’s masks and were given some sort of Vicks Vaporub to rub all over themselves. He said that he could not tell if the Sasquatch had a smell about it as they could not smell anything with the Vicks stuff all over them.
He said he was able to get down to within about two feet of the Sasquatch in the tarp. He got a very good look at it from the feet up to the shins. He said the feet were hairless on the bottom but haired on top and on the shins. He did not describe much more of it. He said he tried to get a good look at the face, but for some reason, he could not see it well. It was at this part in the interview that I decided that this tarp was maybe not so transparent as it was being made out to be. He described the central part of the body around the chest as being very wide.
Shrum also said that the Sasquatch was turned on its side but with the top part of the body facing upwards. He said he thought there was an actual Sasquatch in the tarp based on what he observed. Shrum did not feel that it was a fake. He described it as “a hairy man.”
This was the extent of what Shrum told me in his interview. I honestly do not see what all the fuss is about between Shrum and me except that Rick is trying to stir stuff up like he always does.
Photos of Tarpsquatch episode. Below are a number of photos of the latest purported Dyer Sasquatch body. In some of these photos, I refer to the object as a Sasquatch. I do not mean that it is really a Sasquatch. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. I do think that Rick has something. He either has a dead Sasquatch or he has another doll like he had last time.
But I have no idea what is in that tarp, and Rick has a very bad record as far as these things go. In fact, 100% of the time he has claimed he had a body, the whole story was either an obvious hoax or was so wrapped up in a hoax that no conclusions could be drawn and at any rate, no body ever shows up. Bottom line is every time in the past Rick says he has a body, it turns out he doesn’t have squat. So will this time be different? I have no idea, but look at the law of averages.
In the photo above, Rick and his crew don masks to guard against any diseases the Sasquatch might have.
The photo above shows the object wrapped under some sort of a tarp at the campground. The object appears to be in a fetal position.
This photo shows the purported Sasquatch after it was shot dead in the forest. Biff is pointing a rifle at the object. A tree appears to have fallen on the object. I am having a very hard time making out the contours of this object or seeing any identifiable features in it. Maybe my graphics guy can help me.
Here is another photo of the subject after it was reportedly killed by the men. Rick and Biff are pointing rifles at the subject, which seems to be under a fallen tree. Once again, I have a hard time making out identifiable features on the object.
This is a photo of the object wrapped in a tarp with ice piled on it for preservation. I am not sure where this photo was taken, but it looks like it was taken in someone’s yard.
This photo looks like the back of an SUV piled high with ice.
This photo shows the object wrapped in a tarp. This seems to have a similar shape to the object in the campground photo.
This photos shows Dyer tying the tarp on the object after he wrapped the object up in it.
This photo was drawn for me by my graphics girl who has seen Sasquatches in the wild numerous times. She told me when this story first broke that she thought Rick probably did have a Sasquatch. She said it is probably not that difficult to kill one of these things. “I probably could have killed a few of them myself,” she told me.
We have not discussed the story much since, but she recently sent me this drawing of what she thinks the object in the tarp looks like based on its contours in the tarp. Make what you will of this. That is either a drawing of the Sasquatch she thought Rick killed or of the Sasquatch doll he has made, based on her artist’s eye. I am not going to comment on this photo of all except that I can see how she came to the conclusions that she did.
Enlargement of Sasquatch Ontario photo. I released this photo in my last report. My graphics gal found this screen grab while going through Sasquatch Ontario’s films. This one was taken when Paterson left his camera out for a while. When he came back, he said there were numerous photos on the camera. He said that the Sasquatches must have used the camera somehow. Perhaps they figured out how to work it. That seems completely insane, but whatever. There were a lot of weird photos on there, mostly closeups of the eyes of numerous creatures in the woods. One of the photos was this odd photo below.
I could not make out anything in this photo, so I sent it to my graphics lady. She sent it back marked up.
I have no idea if that photo is what my graphics woman says it is, but it is certainly possible. I will leave it up to you to decide and I will take no stance on this photo for now.
That’s it for now. More later!
