This might have been answered already and if so  Im sorry but what is needed for DNA?, is  it just a hair, because I know you can get it from blood

DNA is in every single cell.

An interesting preliminary finding.
Looking forward to whatever more tests, including responsible independent tests of course, will find-out.

I'm more interested in how this doctor is related to Ash Ketchum than I am about how Bigfoot is related to us.

Could Bigfoot be a Pokemon? O_O

So now that someone thinks they can answer the question, the answer is "I don't know"? Part human part something?

WOW, glad all that testing was done. The professionalism is.............. nonexistent.
Maybe they are playing at the opposite, just like the NASA Mars guys... Supposedly professional scientists are not allowed to give out the specifics of their professional papers before they are published. Who would want to buy magazines/subscriptions to stuff they could read for free on the Internet News?

When asked what they found that would "change history" on Mars, they said they could not talk about it before it was supposed to be published/released.

She refuses to release any data for independent verification.
She'll milk this for all the publicity she can, then we'll learn that it was just bad science, or no science at all.
I thought I read in the first paragraph that she had worked with a half dozen labs and a half dozen universities? That does not sound like refusing independent verification.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

If some accredited mainstream lab or university without an agenda is a part of all this and they too conclude some "amazing" claims.  I'll gladly eat my hat, shoes, and an entire humble pie.

But before then,  I am very interested in documentation of who these corroborative  labs and universities are and complete background on the entire project.

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

I guess we'll have to wait and see if anything gets published. If maybe 2 years goes by and still nothing, then it will seem clear that this is all bogus... Unless there are more announcements to keep everyone on their toes. But never any more information??

Ha! I'm going to have to change that in about a year. Since the fab which I work with will be going to 18 inch wafers. I'll still be checking them though.

"Ketchum's research has yet to stand the scrutiny of independent researchers."

How did we get these present-day giants from human matings 15,000 years ago? I have no knowledge on the subject, I wish someone would explain how that would work.

From the OP...

Quote

There were a large number of laboratories associated with this study including academic, private and government laboratories in which blind testing was utilized to avoid prejudice in testing. Great time and care was taken in the forensic laboratories to assure no contamination occurred with any of the samples utilized in this study.

Of course that is just Ketchum's quote, not a fact. But, eventually Ketchum will have to put forward the Who, What and When or else be outright labeled a Liar.

I like musing  "Never mind the DNA, what place/sense does this specific inter-species mating make in human evolutionary history?"  


--What were the size of humans 15,000 years ago?
--Who could this species we mated with potentially be?
--How long is 15,000 years in the evolutionary terms of a species?
--Why did the interbreeding stop? What stopped the socializing with humans?
--Why aren’t BF more like us? Tools, dwellings, fire, etc. BF, according to what we "know",  seems to have “lost” most of its human traits except bipedalism.

Who says they aren't?

A species that's evaded human discovery for this many centuries except in myths and legend must have super intelligence.
