About to leave for work, but I just noticed this and wanted to post it.
A team of scientists can verify that their 5-year long DNA study, currently under peer-review, confirms the existence of a novel hominin hybrid species, commonly called “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch,” living in North America. Researchers’ extensive DNA sequencing suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago as a hybrid cross of modern Homo sapiens with an unknown primate species.
This report was not vetted by CNN. I will look more into it in the morning, for all I know it could be a straight up hoax. But since I feel that Sasquatch is one of the most unlikely pseudoscientific ideas, any story claiming proof is of interest.
Lines like this deepen my skeptical colors:
Ketchum calls on public officials and law enforcement to immediately recognize the Sasquatch as an indigenous people:
“Genetically, the Sasquatch are a human hybrid with unambiguously modern human maternal ancestry. Government at all levels must recognize them as an indigenous people and immediately protect their human and Constitutional rights against those who would see in their physical and cultural differences a ‘license’ to hunt, trap, or kill them.”
So an ape fucked a woman? I can not wait to find follow up on this.
Skeptical sense, tingling….
