  • Where does one get certified as an "Ancient Astronaut Theorist" or "Cryptozoologist"?

Posted 14 February 2013 - 04:05 PM

Fecal detection meter off the charts. If they could provide ONE scenario where a giant hairy ape could survive in that ecological niche it would be a miracle. Instead BF is apparently invisible, desintergrates upon death, does not eat, does not poop, does not mate, does not have children, does not die accidentally, cannot be tracked, sleeps underground or in another dimension, makes no noise that cannot be attributed to another animal or hoaxers, cannot be filmed properly, cannot be photographed (blobsquatches do not count)....etc.

I claim the area I live in is overrun by dodo birds. I have proof because I say so.

I wish they would put this effort into something useful. Then again I suppose it is to them, for fleecing people who do not want to use critical thinking. JMO.

The printed information flashed by rather quickly in the television video. I did manage to catch certain details. It claimed that the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas did the genetic analysis. This appears to be a real, recognized institution.
SNP  (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) results were mentioned. These reportedly did not match those of known human populations. and on a repeated basis. This nomenclature is correct for a certain genetic determination.
The Illumina Bead Array Assay was referred to. This is an actual  DNA analysis technology.
The samples tested were said to be hairs and blood. It was explained how these were obtained, including protocols for avoiding human contamination. Human samples were used as 'controls' in a comparative analysis.
The statement about the DNA test results not being confirmed by any research institution in the country (USA), could be correct, if only the UT Southwestern Medical Center did the genetic work. Standard scientific practice would next require that other labs repeat, and so confirm, these initial results.

The US government refuses to acknowledge that the sun rises and sets because they can't control that.  Didn't you know that?

They also refuse to acknowledge the existence of stars.  And the fact that 1+1=2.

Forgive me as I'm sure I'm not up-to-date.

Has ANY independent, internationally recognized lab verified(or have even been offered a chance to verify) these findings?

X, so great to see you :).

I guess you know by now though nothing but a dead body is proof to this forum.

It's not what evidence they claim to have, it is the way they go about revealing their discoveries that I find suspicious and arrogant and for the obvious purpose of their "15-minutes" only.

Evidence revelations of these creatures is never handled in a credible grown-up manner, by these 15-minuters.
"We've got proof. Nah nah nah. Just take our word for it!"

Even if I was a believer (which I was once) I couldn't buy what they are selling.

They are all in dire need of some patience and self-control. This is an unusually volatile subject full of hoaxers and frauds. Go through the proper process, get mainstream science behind you,
then reveal your discovery. Otherwise, they are no different from all the story-tellers who have come before them...and they won't be treated any differently or given any credibility they obviously don't care to earn (because they have nothing).

Here's a great Monstertalk interview with Dr. Todd Disotell (the formerly Mohawked DNA guy) from back in December.  It's a great primer on all of this stuff.

I think Big Foot may very well exist. I remember some years back. I watched a program where they got skeptic scientists and an expert on apes and monkeys and they gave them some samples which included dung  and hair samples of a supposed big foot. All of them agreed the samples were from an unknown animal which was highly likely some sort of ape. There was also a video of a big foot running. And an sprinter tried to run as fast in the same amount of time but couldn't. It was proven that the creature whatever it was couldn't be human because it was to fast to be human.

That would be the same gene that tells them how big the animal is and how much it weights.

The creature's weight or size is not the same gene. They are separate.
There is no gene that tells the population count.
