Dr Darren Naish believes that there have been too many sightings for the Loch Ness Monster to be a hoax.

The debate over the possible existence of large sea creatures unknown to science rages ever onwards with sightings occuring all around the world of unidentified "monsters" surfacing in lakes and in the sea. "The huge number of 'sea monster' sightings now on record cant all be explained away as mistakes, sightings of known animals or hoaxes," says Dr Naish.

"Paleontologist Dr Darren Naish reckons there have been too many sightings for 'Nessie' to be a hoax."

Well I'm not sure about the Loch Ness Monster, I have never really had a fasination with it so never looked into it. However, years and years ago people believed that the stories and sightings of the giant squid were fake, and the stories were just ledgends but now we know that the giant squid does exist. We humans know more about space than we know about our oceans. There would still be many undiscovered species in our oceans that would resemble sea monsters.

Do I believe in something we haven't seen yet in these Lakes such as Loch Ness, and Lake Champlain. Definitely. Do I believe it is a Dinosaur? No way. Other interesting things have been observed at the lakes such as echo location. No lake creature is known to echo locate so there is something unusual down there.

Evidence for its existence was there. It always seems to get brought up as a reason to believe in... [More]

Has anyone read Roy Mackal's book: "Monsters of loch ness" ?

I watched a show about 6 years ago where they, from what I can remember, did a proper investigation into loch ness, sent people down there, basically monitored the entire lake for anything odd, over a course of days, and found nothing. The show had to conclude there was nothing odd down there. Now, this was a long time ago so I might have some of the specifics wrong, but I definitely remember them saying that they were as certain as it were possible to be with our modern technology that nothing odd was down there.

Interesting you should post this. I uploaded some pics in the gallery recently I took of Loch Ness. Synchronicity?

Sorry We cannot find the page you are looking for. The page may have been moved, updated or deleted. UPDATE [added August 1st 2011]: The Telegraph have apologised, and have removed the offending article. Various versions based on the Telegraph’s piece are still out there of course. I see Darren Naish's name being splashed, that is the Dinosaurid fellow. He is not stranger to speculation, but in any case, Clobhair-cean seems to have cleared this all up page previous. Naish never said this, the Journo did.
