15 Credibility Street #7 – Big old problem: they might be giants

In this episode, I talk with Jason Colavito about giants, angels and monsters. Or, giant monster angels, who may be anti-diluvians or Atlantians, and who watch, though I’m not sure what and why the hell they are watching. They may be Bigfoot ancestors, or space aliens, or demons, or sons of God, or just “men…

Ketchum wants you to help fund her study on human origins

Melba Ketchum, veterinarian, is asking for $9000 to study elongated “human” skulls. It must be because she did so well with the Sasquatch genome study. She is spearheading a GoFundMe campaign to raise money. Ancient Human Origins, N American Giants by Melba Ketchum – GoFundMe. We have been doing genetic studies on the origin of…

Foerster, Pye and Ketchum collaborate: Paracas elongated skull exposed! (UPDATE)

NEW (09-Feb-2014): Brien Foerster has contacted me saying that Melba Ketchum is not the geneticist behind the released results. See more details in the update below. On the south coast of Peru in 1928, Peruvian archaeologist, Julio Tello, discovered a collection of remains of individuals with unusually elongated skulls. Cranial deformation is a widely known practice…

Journal board tells Ketchum to knock it off

The former directors of the Journal of Advanced Multidisciplinary Exploration in Zoology – JAMEZ – have warned Melba Ketchum to stop saying she bought their journal and obtained peer review for her Bigfoot DNA study. The dominos continue to fall as her study continues to degrade. Hard to imagine it can GET much lower but…

Homo sapiens cognatus posited as new name for Bigfoot

Dr. Melba Ketchum has registered the name Homo sapiens cognatus to Zoo Bank. But what does that mean? From: ZooBank.org. Homo sapiens cognatus Ketchum in Ketchum, Wojtkiewicz, Watts, Spence, Holzenburg, Tolar, Prychitko, Zhang, Bollinger, Shoulders & Smith, 2013 The request was made November 18, 2012 and was just recently accepted in Nomenclatural Acts on the website…

The Bigfoot Files and Melba’s big idea

Just a quick post: two items regarding Bigfoot, DNA and perhaps rivalry. Yesterday, the first of a three-part documentary series aired on British TV featuring Dr. Bryan Sykes and his results from the Oxford-Lausanne DNA project. DN staff was able to obtain a copy and I wrote a review. Bottom line – it’s WELL worth seeing.…

Another Erickson Project Bigfoot clip released

As you can imagine, it’s blurry. Take a look at my commentary on why you should feel angry and insulted by Ketchum, Erickson and the media. They must think the public is a pile of dolts. Bigsuit and Bigroot: Not Bigfoot Addition: I found this on Erickson’s site. The mitochondrial DNA and nuclear DNA of…

Now Ohio goes Bigfoot crazy

This is getting to be a meme or something. Or it’s contagious. What it ISN’T is great evidence for the reality of Bigfoot. It’s more of the same weak, wishful thinking and media influence. A footprint and a reported sighting from Ohio – neither is, as usual, very impressive. But the media just laps it…

Ketchum DNA first retest and peer review: Fail (UPDATE: Response)

SciGuy blogger Eric Berger had a buddy who knows DNA. The geneticist was asked to test the DNA samples with Ketchum’s permission that were purportedly a novel and non-human species. I had the ‘Bigfoot DNA’ tested in a highly reputable lab. Here’s what I found. | SciGuy | a Chron.com blog. I agreed to be…

Ketchum update: Might as well be Lemurians at this point

It’s time for an update to the never-ending, guaranteed ridiculous, saga of the Ketchum DNA study/project. The original piece that I wrote detailing issues upon publication of the study is here.  That piece gives you information about the results and the two spinoff websites from the project: The Sasquatch Genome Project which you can now get…

Breaking bio on the Ketchum Sasquatch sequences

Interested in what scientists trained in evolutionary biology think of the Melba Ketchum DNA paper? You’ll want to watch 25 minutes of this Google Hangout of biologists called Breaking Bio. The guest is David Winter, a PhD in evolutionary biology currently in New Zealand, who looked a bit closer at the sequences provided in the…

Ketchum Bigfoot DNA paper released: Problems with questionable publication (Updated)

Melba Ketchum’s long LONG awaited paper on Bigfoot DNA is published today. But you’re not going to see it. Back in November, Ketchum announced her results: 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…

DNA expert’s view of the Ketchum Bigfoot DNA claim

Dr. Todd Disotell appeared on the Parsec-award winning podcast, Monster Talk, earlier this week to discuss the press release from Dr. Melba Ketchum regarding the Bigfoot DNA study she spearheaded. Monster Talk: SASQUATCH: KETCHUM IF YOU CAN Dr. Disotell is a Professor of Anthropology at New York University. His research specialties include primate evolution, genetics and…

The continuing saga of Sasquatch DNA

It’s been a busy week in Sasquatchery. As we reported on Saturday, a press release was issued officially by Dr. Melba Ketchum’s DNA Diagnostics announcing the study she completed which is awaiting publication regarding the collection and analysis of supposedly Bigfoot DNA. Since then, many outlets have picked up the story, several have used our…

Melba Ketchum announces Bigfoot DNA results. Without the data.

No, a paper has NOT yet been released with the results but because Igor Burtsev spilled the beans earlier (he was VERY excited) in the press, Dr. Melba Ketchum has issued a press release regarding the results of the DNA study that she led that has been in process for 5 years.

The stage is set for Big Bigfoot news. Now produce it.

Bigfoot proponents have said in the past that if only organized efforts to find evidence were undertaken, proof of the creatures’ existence could be secured. Apparently, several of these projects became a reality and sources have claimed big Bigfoot news is on the way. Yet, one project has mysteriously disappeared recently. Other video evidence has…
