New Loch Ness Monster photo surfaces

Nessie hunter George Edwards has published a photo showing an object in the waters of Loch Ness.

The cruise operator has been searching for definitive evidence of the creature for years and believes that this new photograph is what he's been looking for. Edwards claims that he took the picture near Urquhart Castle in November last year, delaying its publication because he had sent it away for analysis.

The image can be viewed - here.

Fellow Nessie hunter Steve Feltham who has taken up permanent residence at Loch Ness was impressed by the find. "It is the best photograph I think I have ever seen," he said. "I think the images are fantastic - that’s the animal I have been looking for all this time."

Loch Ness Project leader Adrian Shrine however was unconvinced. "It looks like the object is stationary in the water, and a matter of metres from the photographer, who is at a higher elevation," he said. "Looking at the texture of the water, the object is about 2ft long, but it could be anything."

"Loch Ness cruise boat operator and veteran Nessie hunter George Edwards yesterday published his photograph, which drew praise from a fellow monster expert, who described it as the best evidence that Nessie exists."

So another (possibly) hoaxed Nessie picture? Alright then. Nothing new. And why do people always think that because we're skeptical, we don't care or are not interested in the paranormal?

Because its easier for them to demonize and write off people who don't agree with them than it is to attempt to wrap their heads around an opposing viewpoint.

Is it a double standard that anger is directed at skeptics rather than at the guy who deceived them? This is a nice line, but it doesn't quite bear that much analysis. I myself am very angry at any hoaxer involved in the paranormal - but I have no means of getting at them. I think that newspapers that have been hoodwinked by hoaxers should sue the person who perpetrated the hoax for deception (in ths case the`Daily Mail` as the former and George Edwards as the latter). However, this never happens, and do you know why? It is because the newspapers treat paranormal stories as `silly season` fill... [More]

UPDATE Are those who have some vested interest (monetary, emotional, etc) in the subject (particularly paranormal subjects) less likely to own up when caught out pranking/hoaxing? How many times have psychics, mediums, alternate archaeologists, paranormal researchers, monster hunters, etc been caught out pranking/hoaxing and how many have then actually owned up? This is a damned good question to ask. Hoaxers seem to be a `species` in their own right. They can hardly be bracketed in with `believers` since they need to knowingly use tricks to deceive others, which means that they can't also be d... [More]

Because its easier for them to demonize and write off people who don't agree with them than it is to attempt to wrap their heads around an opposing viewpoint. This won't do. Who on earth is `demonising` sceptics - other than just expressing occasional irritation with them? Examples needed! In what way can scepticism be described as an `opposing viewpoint` when it is the attitude which is dominant on this forum, particularly in the cryptozoological part of it? Why do you assume that people who happen to disagree with you are incapable of un derstanding your viewpoint? For that matter, why do yo... [More]

Why do you assume that people who happen to disagree with you are incapable of un derstanding your viewpoint? For that matter, why do you assume that posters can be neatly cartegorised into `believers` and `sceptics`: I am sometimes one and sometimes the other, and, I must say, I have noticed t... [More]

Awww. Now settle down. I'll admit, "demonize" was probably a touch dramatic for what I was trying to get across. Sometimes my word choice isn't as precise as I'd like. I wasn't referring specifically even to a particular skewering I've recieved here regarding my skeptic nature. I was speaking in sort of fluffy, vague, general terms and you called me on it. So good on, you mate! I don't fancy myself anyone's hero. I say way too many stupid things for that sort of title. I do know however that I have recieved more than a few personal attacks here in the forums and in personal messages that were ... [More]

Lastly - it is nice to hear from you again UN Owen. It seems that its been awhile. Thanks for that Orange:it's appreciated. I come and go - that's just my style. I also take on board much of what you have said above.

In this sense an attitude of sceptical cynicism and the hoax culture are in accidental cahoots: the hoaxers always ensure that paranormal stories are continually made to look silly and this then allows the cynics to never take the subject seriously enough to do anything to confront the hoax culture. Hoaxers seem to be a `species` in their own right. They can hardly be bracketed in with `believers` since they need to knowingly use tricks to deceive others, which means that they can't also be deceiving themselves whilst they're about it. I do not agree with the above points. It is my experience ... [More]
