Enters from the North Sea with high water levels. I've heard there are even underground passages.

Even if there may be some passages to the North Sea, why is there ever only a sighting of ONE "monster" at a time? Surely there'd be a breeding population? Wouldn't there be alot more sightings than there allegedly are?

For an animal to survive, it needs a resource and to breed.

When all else fails go underground. Was told once that Cochise escaped the cavalry by entering a cave in Arizona and exiting out of Carlsbad.

The water to the sea is too shallow so make up another story. Keep piling up all of the bad excuses.

Again, alot of these people who believe such a thing exists are forgetting one important thing. IT NEEDS TO BREED. Surely if it existed and bred there'd be alot more sightings? But not just more sightings ACTUAL evidence, nay proof?

One of the early hoaxes was footsteps on the shore since Nessie was a land animal at that time.

My leading theory is still a cousin species to the Plesiosaur.

Why exactly do you think it's a plesiosaur relative?

I googled 'eels'. Even the largest type found in the loch doesn't seem nearly big enough or have the head type to match the Nessie reports. They don't get bus sized for example.

Pretty sure busses are smaller out by the loch than here in the U.S... something for folks to consider about. But still, I'm fairly certain that there aren't eels that get even as big as small busses, lol. Particularly in an environment as small as Loch Ness. 

Keep in mind that humans are notoriously terrible at judging sizes over long distances. The object they saw may not actually have been as large as a bus

Psychic/channeled source as well as plausibility.

True enough... I know I'm terrible with guessing distances and sizes of stuff. But then, I've needed glasses for years and still with them I'm terrible at it, lol.

Yes that is of course kept in mind in these cases.

So you can't name any characteristics that the LNM supposedly shares with plesiosaurs? I wouldn't trust a psychic to be a reliable source for paleontological information.

Only reported similarity of appearance.

Whether it  is following the reports of leg and land or a horse's head or a plesiosaur it is all about eyewitnesses repeating what they think they should say

Or it could be an accurate telling of what they saw?

So you think all of those people that reported see the horse's head were accurate?  They were reporting what had not been reported by Champlain.

So which is it? Legs or fins?

And where are your imaginary underground passages?

You are only defending the eyewitnesses because your worldview is based on story telling.

Think about this:

  • How do you explain that after it was announced that the horse head story was a fiction, aka lie, reports of horse head monsters went away.
  • How do you explain that Nessie no longer walks on land? OMG, are you going to invoke the Little Mermaid story? LOL

Except the LNM differs from plesiosaurs in most aspects. Like stereo has already pointed out, plesiosaurs didn't venture on to land or have horse-shaped heads. Plesiosaurs couldn't bend their necks into the "swan" posture. Plesiosaurs didn't have humps on their backs.

Stereo, funny how you went from me saying some tellings may be accurate to me needing to defend everything that has ever been said or claimed. Where’s the more sophisticated thinking I employ?

A cousin species was all I said. I do see some resemblances in the tellings with a plesiosaur.

You have no sophisticated thinking.

You don't seem to realize that your ideas such as psychic evidence are as unsophisticated as any thinking can be.

The point is that your plesiosaur idea is based on a completely uneducated idea of the behavior and understanding of plesiosaurs. Notice I gave Carnoferox a trophy for his post. Why? It reminded me of all of the things I had forgotten about these long extinct creatures.

Finally, if you think "me needing to defend everything that has ever been said or claimed" is what I was driving at, well then you really have no thinking ability.

No. Simply no. It's not plausible at all.

In what way does it resemble a plesiosaur to you?

I wouldn't trust a psychic to be a reliable source for anything.  Unless it's information about a murder, and then I'd investigate the psychic.

Those are both completely imaginary artworks. The top image doesn't accurately represent what plesiosaurs looked like. The bottom image isn't very accurate to what the LNM is supposed to look like either.
