Miss Patty, stabilized.

Well now… this is certainly interesting!

I found out somewhat inadvertently by checking my twitter feed, which is something I hardly ever do as, being an old hippy I simply can’t keep up with it

So I scrolled down a bit and there was a tweet from Craig Woolheater of Cryptomundo with the title shown below as the text with a link. There I found what appears below…

Wondering if this study is a part of the one that I meant to post about way back when when it was announced which I learned of through SLAYER69’s thread at ATS called Project to examine ‘Yeti’ DNA launched. I don’t think so as it was “A new collaboration between Oxford University and the Lausanne Museum of Zoology will use the latest genetic techniques to investigate organic remains that some have claimed belong to the ‘Yeti’ and other ‘lost’ hominid species.” But, hey, you never know.

As for this Facebook press release, it’s a very exciting result. I must say and not at all what I expected.

Enjoy…

Sasquatch DNA Study Announcement
Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 23rd, 2012

Igor Burtsev made the following announcement on his facebook page today:

Urgent!

The DNA analysis of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch specimen conducted by Dr. Melba Ketchum the head of DNA Diagnostics, Timpson, TX, USA has been over!

Team of American scientists led by Dr. Melba Ketchum for five years has analyzed 109 purported samples of such creatures. The study has sequenced DNA of a novel North American hominin, commonly called Bigfoot or Sasquatch.

There were a large number of laboratories associated with this study including academic, private and government laboratories in which blind testing was utilized to avoid prejudice in testing. Great time and care was taken in the forensic laboratories to assure no contamination occurred with any of the samples utilized in this study.

After 5 years of this study the scientists can finally answer the question of what Bigfoot/Sasquatch really is. It is human like us only different, a hybrid of a human with unknown species. Early field research shows that the Bigfoot/Sasquatches are massively intelligent which has enabled them to avoid detection to a large extent. They are different than us, however human nonetheless.

The hybridization event could not have occurred more than 15,000 years ago according to the mitochondrial data in some samples. Origin of this Hominin was probably Middle Eastern/Eastern Europe and Europe originally though other geographic areas are not excluded. The manuscript associated with this study has been submitted to a scientific reviewed magazine.

For many years, people have refused to believe they exist. Now that we know that they are real, it is up to us to protect them from those that would hunt or try to capture them for research or for sport. They should be left alone to live as they live now. After all, they are our relatives.

At this time, analysis of the Sasquatch genomes is still ongoing. Further data will be presented in the future following this original study. Additionally, analysis of various hair samples purportedly from Siberian Wildman are being tested in an effort to determine if relatedness exists between the Sasquatch and Russian Wildman.

Edit to Add: Interesting discussion of this topic started 11/24 on ATS by Caver78: ‘BIGFOOT’ DNA SEQUENCED IN UPCOMING GENETICS STUDY. Pretty sure the mods will make the OP get rid of the all-caps. The title (in accordance with ATS rules, (except for the caps)) is from the article ‘Bigfoot’ DNA Sequenced In Upcoming Genetics Study on Yahoo! News.

The Bible Illuminated: ...from Crumb's book, The Book of Genesis. Click to read a Crumb article @ Dirt Floor.

As readers might deduce from perusing these pages, I have long been a fan of the legendary artist R. Crumb. His visions have had a lasting influence upon what makes me who and what I am.

Crumb has tackled innumerable issues and fortunately Fortean concepts sneak in there every once in a while, with a nice chunk of cryptozoology.

Bigfoot, aliens and even our pals the Reptilians have been featured.

Here’s a pic of a Reptilian combined with religion from his book The Book of Genesis, which took him four years to do…

The inspiration for this quick post is a fine piece I’ve just read on exactly this subject by WATT’s friend Micah Hanks over at his most excellent blog, called The Gralien Report

the International Cryptozoology Museum“After six years of sweat, tears, and plaster foot casts, Loren Coleman has found a permanent home for his Cryptozoology Museum in downtown Portland, Maine!” – Skylaire Alfvegren

This is big news!

It’s taken six years, but as of November 1, 2009, the International Cryptozoology Museum will publicly open in a permanent space in downtown Portland, Maine.

The museum has found a public home at 661 Congress Street, just down the street from the world-famous Portland Museum of Art and the State Theater, next to a local landmark, Joe’s Smoke Shop.

The three year lease is signed, the fund-raising can begin in earnest, your help is needed, museum patrons will be given teeshirts / footcasts, and the doors are happily being flung open to a new dawn for the world’s only fully public cryptozoology museum. The times were often difficult, but the museum survives. The morrow is incredible and exciting!

The museum modestly began with sculptures and paintings created just for it, hundreds of cryptids toys and souvenirs from around the world, one-of-a-kind artifacts, a life-size 8 feet tall Bigfoot representation, a full-scale six-foot-long coelacanth model, over a hundred Bigfoot-Yeti-Yowie footcasts, jackalopes, furred trout, along with such Hollywood cryptid-related props as The Mothman Prophecies’ Point Pleasant “police” outfit, the movie P. T. Barnum’s authentic 3.5 feet tall Feejee Mermaid, the TV series Freakylinks’ 11 ft long “Mystery Civil War Pterodactyl,” and some of the movie Magnolia’s falling frogs.

Craig WoolheaterBigfoot in Texas?

by Craig Woolheater
co-founder and chairman of the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy

A common misconception among the general public is that the Bigfoot phenomenon is limited strictly to the Pacific Northwest. Many people think of Texas terrain as being nothing but prairies and deserts filled with “tumbling tumbleweeds” to quote the famous song.

However, in East Texas, which is where the majority of the reported sightings of Bigfoot occur in the state, there are approximately 12 million acres of forest land. There are four national forests and five state forests in Texas, all located in East Texas, the primary and most important forested area in Texas. The East Texas Pine Belt, or “Piney Woods” as it is commonly called, extends over forty-three counties and accounts for almost all of the state’s commercial timber.

There has been a long history of sightings in the state of Texas. Native American legends dating back hundreds of years describe tribes of hair-covered giants that lived in the forests. One of the first in the history books is the strange case of “The Wild Woman Of The Navidad.” This is a story that was recounted in The Legends of Texas published by the Texas Folklore Society in 1924. The creature was described as being extremely fast and covered in short brown hair. She eluded capture because the horses were so afraid of the strange creature that they could not be urged within reach of the lasso. Mysterious, barefoot tracks were seen frequently in the area. These events occurred in 1837 in the Texas settlements of the lower Navidad. []

I’ve always paid heed to what these two people say… with all their extraordinary experience and dedication in researching the creatures of the wild I was always absolutely sure I heard only truth and reason… I still do.

With that in mind I was delighted to learn of Sir David’s recent common sense estimate of the situation. Seriously, it’s just common sense. I don’t even consider it Forteana… not really… just in the sense of the always bafflingly poor response of mainstream “science.” (In quotes because sadly, science, which I love, is something that mainstreamers just don’t do.)

Unlike Sir David Attenborough and Dr. Jane Goodall.

In the real world of cryptozoology, people never spend the time and money required to record something that’s smarter and much more adept than they are while in its element… not entirely their fault, of course, for those who would do so in a heartbeat, as the system is designed so that people simply don’t have that kind of time or money. Someday…
