I too am doubtfull that there are giant monsters living in the depths. There's just no evidence for it.
The general consensus in the scientific community, however, is that about 5% of the ocean floor has been explored.
The desk analogy is quite a good one actually. You know the bottom of the desk is there but you couldn't describe it's features or tell me if there was a spider there. It's the same with the ocean floor. We know it's there, we know the rough shape of it, but we don't know the details of the seafloor featured such as trenches, ancient seamounts etc or what lives there. By the scientific definition, 50% of your desk is unexplored and so is about 95% of the planet.

Now to really annoy you:
There's one on your shoulder.
No, the other shoulder.
'Good' is not the same as 'nice'.
'No, murder is running your broadsword through someone because he worships a different God to you... Or is that evangelism? I get confused.'
When they discover the centre of the universe, a lot of people are going to be disappointed - They are not it.
I don't object to the concept of a deity but I'm baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance. Cleveland Scouts Kenya 2013 - Please help any way you can.
We have explored less than 10% of the deep ocean. But to argue a point. The billed whale has been seen only three times since the early 1900's. And they know they exist now in larger pods due to having caught a pod on video just a few months ago. So to condem anything else that we or the "scientists" dont know about. Seems kind of ignorant to me when you really think about it. Especially when these are top water whales that are almost as large as Killer whales. I'm just saying...
