A finger from the Pangboche hand said to be that of a Yeti has been DNA tested in London.

Daily Mail said:

Set high in a remote Himalayan mountain range stands the Pangboche Buddhist monastery. During heavy snowstorms, it can be found only by travellers who listen for the monks’ ceremonial horns.

I'm betting some form of primate... or human... But not a Yeti.

What I find sadder is that I predict, in years to come, this finger will be brought up and still used as "evidence" of a yeti in discussions for years.

The trend with this type of thing seems to be that everyone remembers the "evidence" but few seem to remember when it was discredited, and I end up hearing about it for years and years.

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.

That is because the Illuminati are trying to hide the fact that the Yeti is real and thus they have bought off the DNA testers, or faked the test, or they planted that fake finger there to be found. Bwaaaahhhh ha Ha!!!

I wish that the human dna was so old or degraded, or that the lab used was inept and the result came back as "unknown hominid dna."

Footers LOVE that.

Well, I have turned on my NPR news hoping the station carries the BBC Radio4 at 3:00 PM my time. We don't get any other BBC broadcasts here in Dallas.

Looks like more 'cryptid evidence' is not really cryptid evidence. Maybe monks do lie  :(

What the monks may have had was the hand of a wildman (feral man / outcast / outsider) and in their eyes (legends) a Yeti. This would explain the human DNA and help the monks keep their integrity.

There is a long time from the finding of the hand to the DNA results. In the story of this finger the Yeti finger had been swapped with a human finger on the original hand, maybe this happened again as it changed owners and was missing for years. Could the finger be contaminated and thus effect  the result?
These can bring up slight questions of its authenticity, and for many will be why Yeti finger will keep on doing the rounds as 'evidence'.

This was a great story, unfortunately it was better before the DNA results came in.

UFOs and Bigfoot, among other paranormal subjects...it's difficult being a witness to these things and being scoffed at by others who have not shared the experience. Oh well, it will all come out in the wash. Does the human DNA really explain this as human as we know it, when we know so little about all that "junk" DNA? Science is all about on-going theories waiting to be proven to our satisfaction. I'm not satisfied that we know enough about DNA to draw a conclusion yet.

Well, not really. Theories are based on evidence. They aren't just ideas that we throw out and hope for something to support them. You have the cart before the horse.
