Dallas: Researchers in Dallas released new evidence Tuesday supporting their earlier Bigfoot Genome DNA Study release and conclusions of Feb 2013. Some scientists in the field say these conclusions are loose assumptions based on pseudoscience. Bigfoot Genome study partner’s Melba Ketchum and Adrian Erickson both spoke on behalf of the study at a Dallas news conference. The conference was to announce the release of Erickson’s much anticipated and long awaited video’s. There is some question as to the pertinence of those videos as it relates to the study and the data in it. To that question Melba Ketchum replied; the video shows a Bigfoot creature with black skin and a grey tongue, this creature also has Red hair. The Bigfoot sample from this same incident showed exactly that signature in the DNA. This was very strange and unique in that no currently accepted human species has a GREY tongue; all tongues in humans are pink. Mainstream science and scientists like Todd Disotell (professor at the Department of Anthropology at New York University, have distanced themselves from the study and refused to give Ms. Ketchum the credit the researchers involved think that she deserves.
Phoenix: A researcher in Arizona who has submitted a major sample to the Bigfoot Genome study spoke out on behalf of the project today on KPHO.com & KPHO 5 CBS News Arizona. When Phoenix CBS affiliate KPHO Channel 5 wanted the answers they went to their local expert, Arizona Cryptozoologist Alex Hearn. Hearn has been featured on local TV & News (including CBS 5 News) in the past. Along with appearing in both the Phoenix Magazine and The Times Publication’s “The Valley times”, Hearn has also appeared on national radio shows, like Coast to Coast AM, Dreamland with Whitley Strieber and The Kevin Smith Show. Hearn said the DNA evidence supports the video in question, and the Video supports the previous released DNA data. He added that mainstream news and media needs to get on board and stop using this data as puff pieces and for comic relief as George Stephanopoulos recently did on ABC News.
Hearn doesn’t try to persuade people himself, but likes to site the data that has been found and let others draw their own conclusions. He does say he will take you with him to any of the active areas nearby in Arizona. He explained there are very active areas in the Sierra Anchas Wilderness and The White Mountains of Arizona, along with numerous locations on the Mogollon Rim. The AZCRO believes biggest obstacle to discovering this species is funding and equipment not so much finding locations to research. The funding is little to none, and the technology behind the equipment keeps advancing. Right now the AZCRO is in dire need of funds to continue operating; fuel costs alone to one of those locations mentioned can cost up to $300. Luckily the equipment prices are dropping; a thermal camera (FLIR) and night vision (IGEN) set up is less than $2000 now.
The true test is what do you think? Do you believe enough to put your money or time into the search? You can do that at the AZCRO website; just click the contact links or Donate Buttons. If you are in another state you can still donate to the AZCRO, and in most cases Alex can put you in touch with local researchers in your area.
Don’t let the truth get in the way of the news.
