Richard Stubstad, the person who once worked with Dr. Ketchum in sequencing the Bigfoot DNA samples released an article updating us on what he discovered during his research. He has provided compelling evidence, hopefully proving once and for all that Sasquatch does exist. You can read his article by clicking here.
The article is located at www.sciencealivenews.com a website Stubstad started in June of 2011. The website is "dedicated to the on-line publication of serious scientific articles not normally addressed in contemporary mainstream media outlets."
"In fact, these two samples could either end up proving the existence of a reproductively viable hybrid hominid species or the DNA results may end up indicating that sasquatch is a 100% human (stoneage or ancient) race or tribe."
Here are some excerpts from the article titled:
Sasquatch DNA News
Sasquatch DNA Research — June 2011
Update by: Richard Stubstad
"The resulting outcome was extremely unexpected, because—hold your hat!—both samples tested 100% Homo sapiens (human), not a new hominid as the most serious and credible sasquatch researchers had long-since surmised. [Btw, as opposed to popular public and scientific sentiment, there really are some of serious folks out there working on this mystery.] However, having said this it must be kept in mind that mtDNA tests only reveal a tentative clue about the ancient mitochondrial (maternal/female) origins of a particular creature or hominid. If the paternal (male) origins, determined through analysis of the nuclear DNA (nuDNA) are also 100% human, then the results should also reveal 100% human DNA sequencing."Source: www.sciencealivenews.com
"While it is unusual for the male and female origins of a particular species to be different from one-another, it is certainly not unheard of. In all likelihood, such anomalies have occurred numerous times over the past million years or more. In fact, these two samples could either end up proving the existence of a reproductively viable hybrid hominid species or the DNA results may end up indicating that sasquatch is a 100% human (stoneage or ancient) race or tribe; or even possibly a much more modern feral human. Without the nuDNA data at our disposal, we still do not have the conclusions we seek."
And the conclusion:
"As indicated in the foregoing discussion, verification that these two specimens—whether hoaxed, misidentifications or real-life sasquai—could be from a newly identified and extant tribe of Homo sapiens or feral humans is certainly not proven. All that is really proven by the above analysis is that both samples lead back—possibly far back into the late Pleistocene or later stone age—to an individual human (Cro Magnon) female that somehow got into the genetic mix—willingly or not—at least 10,000-15,000 years ago. While these data are not scientifically conclusive, they are nevertheless quite compelling and should provide the necessary impetus for further sampling and testing—not only on the mtDNA side but, even more importantly, on the nuDNA side."
