The Professor interjects his much-appreciated 2 cents into the Bigfoot DNA debate and counters Melba Ketchum's DNA study with some good, old-fashioned science facts. He dissects the process of hybridization itself and says that if the data in the study is legitimate, it would depend greatly on which side of Neanderthal Bigfoot's DNA resides in order to make the call of human/Bigfoot hybrid and on what scale. He is also skeptical of the study's supposed 100 samples and wonders how dependable this evidence is. Like the rest of us, The Professor is shaking his head in disbelief and...waiting...Nick Redfern reminds us that there is more to the world of Bigfoot than the Ketchum study and tells us about an upcoming A Bigfoot Anniversary-- the first reported encounter of the Wildman of Orford in Britain. And if you're like us and just a little tired of Bigfoot, here's a crypto treat of a very different kind from Boing Boing,The Natural History of the European Werewolf, a lecture by the editor of Skeptic Magazine, Deborah Hyde.
