'Yeti finger' DNA test results revealed

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

The finger turned out to have been in the UK for over 50 years and was taken from a monastery in Nepal in 1957. Irish-American explorer Peter Byrne had been in the region as part of an expedition funded by Tom Slick, he became fascinated by the hand after hearing two Sherpas talking about it. Byrne was able to retrieve one of the fingers from the hand and had smuggled it back to England. Now stored at the Royal College of Surgeons, the finger is to be DNA tested by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland with the results expected to be revealed later today.

Update: Scientists in Edinburgh have revealed that the 'yeti finger' is actually that of a human.

"Set high in a remote Himalayan mountain range stands the Pangboche Buddhist monastery."

Yes, enough similarities to easily classify it as humanoid. But there are many differences too. Start with the face. Would you care to be more specific about the cranio-facial elements to which you are referring? In this regard one would wish to keep in mind the distortions of said elements that result from congenital hydrocephalus. One must also keep in mind the genetic testing: The Starchild skull DNA was found to contain both an X and a Y chromosome. This is conclusive evidence that the child was not only human (and male), but both of his parents must have been human as well, for each must ... [More]

For some reason, bigfooters think this is an endorsement of their fantasy by an actual scientist. And no matter how many times you point out that Goodall ends her quote with this : "You know, why isn't there a body? I can't answer that, and maybe they don't exist, but I want them to." Goodall says THERE IS NO EVIDENCE, BUT SHE WANTS THEM TO EXIST. Well no, she didn't say there was no evidence, she said there was no body to study and based on that they may not exist but she wants them to. Neo, 2 words you said a long time ago have stuck with me. Environmental impact. I just want to say "thanks!... [More]

Thought, who some suspect is Pye, has already been pushing this in the ET thread where he hit the same argument. Apparently he does not seem to accept the Y chromosome. He pretends it does not exist, and tries to say bone composition is alien. Ahh well, the DNA testing failed, gotta keep trying something to keep the alien alive! LOL. Chuckle! It could be that your suspicions are valid. Or they could be the contributions of an acolyte. There would appear to be a rash of similar contributions (regarding a number of topics) in more recent history. In either case, the matter has long ago been addr... [More]

What is evidence that is not supported other than hearsay? It is still evidence, it is only circumstantial or considered unsupported. If someone murdered person A with a 9mm pistol, and person B was found with a 9mm pistol and blood on his shoes, those items are both evidence, even though someone still needs to examine the shoes and the pistol and determine if they are connected to the murder. But starting at minute 1 of the investigation those items are evidence. Evidence can be eliminated, and can be shown to be relavant, but it can also be in an unsupported status, such as exists in unsubst... [More]

A “yeti conference” involving explorers, yeti enthusiasts and scientists embarked on a two-day exploration in Siberia, according to The Guardian, in October of this year. They came back having found what they assert is “irrefutable” evidence of the creature’s existence and habitation of the area they were in.
