Till Next Time….
I have been very interested in the comments you and others have made on the subject of the DNA study, and I agree that I was overeager to make some of my points. HOWEVER:
I seriously doubt that you have the credentials to evaluate the performance of the DNA Laboratory at the University of Texas Southwestern at Dallas, that sequenced the Three Nuclear Genomes of Sasquatch DNA from the blood, saliva and flesh samples that were submitted to them by Dr. Ketchums highly professional team of experts. There are 2.7 Million Base Pairs that include many sequences that did not BLAST on Genbank. This is a significant fact that indicates that we are dealing with a new species. Dr. Ketchum has pointed out that very small quantities of DNA has been adequate to prove a new species is extant. The figures that I recall are in the range of several thousand base pairs. Why does this creature have to have so much more proof of its existence than other creatures that have been recognized by science with scant proof.
I have not heard any comments that the DNA Lab at the University of Texas at Dallas has made any material mistakes in the procedures they used or the results they obtained.
It you had any other creature to prove the existence of but Bigfoot, a few thousand unique base pairs would be more than adequate to prove the species exists. With Bigfoot, even though there are substantially more anecdotal reports of the observation of the alleged creature by a relatively enormous number of witnesses, many of whom are Wildlife Biologists or Law Enforcement Officers. Speaking of Law enforcement officers, several years I read the following report.
I recall this circumstance of an incident where a Sheriff and 5 of his Deputies, during a rescue operation to assist survivors of a plane crash on Mount Hood in Oregon, came face to face at very close range, just a few feet, with a huge Male Sasquatch, on a logging road, part way up the mountain, when they were going back down the mountain to their vehicles.
The six of them, all uniformed Officers, were unwilling to move their hands anywhere near their weapons, because the Deputies all felt that their puny weapons would have no effect on the Huge Creature, that they all claimed was at least 8 feet tall, with shoulders that were 4 feet wide.
After a few moments of staring down each other, the alleged creature turned its back on all 6 of them and walked away without any animosity towards them. Needless to say they were shaken.
The Sheriff himself later made a statement that was very telling. He said, that he could not believe, that in the presence of 5 of his heavily armed deputies, that he was afraid, But HE WAS! None of them were willing to move their hands anywhere near their weapons, and he agreed with his Deputies belief that that their weapons would have had no effect on such a large creature.
Two of the Deputies were still so shaken when they returned to their base of operations that they were not able to fill out the reports like the others did. I read copies of the four reports when I was up in Oregon a few years ago. They were for real. A friend had obtained copies of them from one of the Deputies to prove to me that my assertion that Sasquatch were a myth was unfounded.
Charles, again you have some great material. My evaluation is not of the labs at all. I simply raised questions in which the instructions pertaining to the primer were, which has not been satisfactorily explained by Dr. Ketchum. I agree it is an uphill battle in ANY scientific forum. Again some great info you have provided us my friend. —SK
