A replica of an alleged Yeti hand is to be returned by a New Zealand pilot to a monastery in Nepal.

The original hand was stolen along with an alleged yeti scalp back in the 1990s after a documentary was aired featuring the relics. While the original scalp was thought to be that of a goat the bones in the hand were never identified.

"A pilot from New Zealand is in Nepal to return a replica of what some believe is the hand of a yeti to a remote monastery in the Everest region."

Returning replicas of the original fakes? Kind of ironic if you ask me. Yes kind of ironic. But to them they probably have a special meaning so he is a good samaritan to return them.

What's the point of this? It in no way replaces what was stolen. It's like if a Church had the Holy Grail, and it was stolen only to be replaced with a coffee cup saying "Jesus is #1!"

It's only like that if the holy grail, and jesus were fakes to begin with. Gidday Mate! Long time no hear. I agree, I do not understand the Pilots motivation here, or why he feels so personally responsible. But, I guess people have paid up to 50K for a fake, just in the last few years alone, so, I guess there is no end to some peoples optimisim. I am not sure of that is good or bad LOL. Cheers.

It's only like that if the holy grail, and jesus were fakes to begin with. The Holy Grail is a work of fiction, and was never mentioned in the Bible. And please, Atheists, try to resist making a snarky reply about that sentence.

Ummm, I'm not the one who brought this holy grail nonsense in to the conversation. That was my reply to the person that did bring it up. I suggest you bring this issue up with that person not me. If you did not understand my reply I would be happy to clarify it for you. While we are on the subject it was christians whom made up the fable of the holy grail not me.

Sorry, I was just establishing that the grail was fiction. I wasn't instigating anything with you. And the holy grail was a work of fiction seperate from christian myth. I think you're taking offense to my post when none was intended,... [More]

I think you're taking offense to my post when none was intended, it's just a misunderstanding. No need to apologize, that was my bad. Sorry for shooting first and asking questions later. I am trying to work on this character flaw. I'm just glad it's my only one. :lol:
