Dr. Melba Ketchum: Our science is overkilled beyond reason


Thanks to Steve A. for posting this latest statement from Dr. Melba Ketchum regarding "hecklers" and her study. Ketchum states her Bigfoot DNA manuscript is "overkilled beyond reason". Whatever this means, it has to be longer than 50 pages, right? She also mentions that her paper is currently in review (Russia?) and seems confident that her paper will pass:

I really appreciate all of the support. Let the hecklers have their day, who cares. Our science is overkilled beyond reason. After all they accepted a new species of monkey (below) with less than 6.8 kilobases of sequence. Our mito alone is 16.5 Kb on the samples. Our nuclear is 3 genomes from three individuals and is 3 Terabytes of data and billions of bases plus a lot of other testing and disciplines. We also used blind studies. I don't care what anyone says, we have this nailed and it will come out. The journal just has to have the guts to go where no journal has gone before. I personally believe that they will do it.
[...]
About the journal, it is in review. So far no indication of rejection as they did take it. Just waiting on the reviewers.... All will reveal itself in due time.

    1. Told us what? What the Dr. failed to mention was all the supporting data that went along with the study she's comparing her study with.
      Or did you just want to be first?

I went out clubbing last Friday and then I wake up in a playground on Wednesday afternoon with twenty stitches on the back of my head and both nipples pierced. Wtf? Then when I get home there's a message on my phone saying I got the job that I interveiwed for at Spencer's Gifts.

    10. Does anyone here remember when McCheese was twice the man he is now? Why there's not a sesame seed on his head anymore. This is why there is no justice in the world. What the Hamburgler and Captain Crook did to this guy is deplorable, and now they are both living the high life on some white beach while McCheese has to pick up the pieces of a decade long binge that has left him in an obsequious disposition: http://cdn101.iofferphoto.com/img3/item/525/972/433/l_gsCQ1976-remco-mcdonald-s-mayor-mccheese-doll-6-undressed.jpg

    7. You're saying Moneymaker, Bobo, Merchant, Meldrum and Curtino don't want the species revealed? Are you crazy???? They've all publicly lost confidence in the study and said so. There's s big difference between thinking Ketchum is a fraud and not wanting Bigfoot revealed, just because you are anti-Ketchum doesn't mean you're anti-Bigfoot.

    1. But we didn't know about this particular human species before now, except some of us did, hence her coming report on it. Would you prefer we didn't know?

  6. Wow, now it's "in due time" and not "soon". I think the Sun may burn out before her study is published.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. "all in due time" which means when the reviewers review it, provide feedback back, edits if necessary, rinse-and-repeat as necessary. she can't control how quickly this happens. and relatively it is "soon", in terms of the entire process.

      the mentality and mental capability in this comment section is astounding - i see a plethora of future rocket scientists and molecular geneticists in here.

      Delete
    2. I guess the Sasquatch will mindspeak to the reviewers at Ketchum's request in order to have her paper published "in due time".
      I won't be holding my breath in anticipation of her study being published. I'll wait for a scientist with a proper background in genetics to conduct a study....
      Oh, never mind, that's already happening.

    3. Dream on SN, you're good at that.

    4. 7:40- You are correct about that. The notice of acceptance comes with requests for edits and suggestions. After its re-submitted, they may again ask for changes. I'll add that they do not ask for changes and then reject it-the paper is in or out.
      She probably got rejected a few times before(it has been a long time!), but she is not obligated to say so.

    5. Many of the people on this site who make comments and pretend to be informed or educated are attempting to fool the average reader Those who don't care about foolish pre-school children's toys as names, bodily waste collection as hobbies or using tiny, simple minded curse words are not entertained or amused. SasquaiNation, I know who you are personally. You have no authority to make comments with any merit. Most of you are lumped into the same dung heap as the fools who claims to collect his feces in a glass jar for later consumption. I do find it amusing however that you attack genetic studies without a shred of knowledge about the subject yet you will applaud this foolish fellow referred to as Phil for some of the clown acts he perpetrates in the name of "analysis" or "evidence collection."

      Ha-ha. Good one.

      Delete
    6. Well put, they're all in it together and by some of them having "names" it's supposed to fool us and think less of the study. While it's certainly the case that none of us know anything about it, other than what Igor released, it does prove that the study's real and Ketchum must be given the benefit of the doubt as she does appear science knowledgeable enough to be taken seriously unlike the troll scum frequenting here.

      Even better would be a comparative chromosonal graphic showing structural patterns of matching single nucleotide polymorphisms between Squatch and Homo Sapien, Neanderthal, Gorilla, and Denisova - So we can see them drop out or amplify between these genomes.

    8. Not that I believe in sasquatch for a second, but why would you want to include gorilla in that comparison. I don't see how having an outgroup is particularly useful in that situation. Also, since when do we have devisonian DNA?

      Delete
    5. @5:16....you're correct. They want to flood the airwaves with their knowledge that the Ketchum endeavor is all a hoax for profit, or incompetent science, hoping that this will influence the peer reviewers and journal to chop Ketchum down. But the mainstream media doesn't voice these insidious and childish rumors. The journal and peer reviewers are not going to consider the bigfoot subject more taboo because of what they do, nor is the general public, because they get their news from the mainstream.

      Delete
    6. Or maybe it's just because they really do think Ketchum is a fake and a phoney and just feel like saying so? I think it's a load of bunk based on what I've seen from Ketchum herself, I might be wrong but the truth is I don't know and neither do you! You think that nobody on either side wants this published? That's crap! Moneymaker, Merchant and other doubters are annoyed at being strung along with empty promises for 5 years and wacky press releases! Do you honestly think anyone on here thinks that anything they write will influence anyone else's opinions? Think we're all just venting and as for the mainstream as 2 thirds of the population don't believe in Bigfoot all Squatchers look like idiots whether it's Ketchum or Moneymaker for to convince the world there's an 8ft apeman running around. The sceptics are in the majority here and more likely to listen to someone like Merchant who casts doubt on the study than someone who believes in a study they haven't seen and won't hear a bad word said about it. You guys are doing a good job of convincing the world Squatchers are a bunch of crazies if anyone is putting mainstreamers off Bigfoot it's you guys treating it almost like a religion with Ketchum as a figurehead.

      Delete
    7. If they really think that then they're stupid because, regardless her personal opinions on the subject, nothing indicates she's wrong or her science faulty somehow.
      There's no religious following her study, not from me that's for sure, I'm merely convinced she's got the proof the world's been screaming for but what does she get here except ridicule.
      She's entitled to a personal philosophies about what this species is up to, not the least since they appear to be human after all, so until we see what she's got the very worst thing to do is bash it unseen because that'll come back to haunt you later.

      Delete
    8. Her personal opinions and actions do call her competence into serious question, though. There is a right way to handle a major research project like this. There are also many wrong ways to handle a major research project like this. So far, Ketchum's managed to do almost everything wrong, from her facebook page to her spokesperson, to his bizarre statements about constitutional rights for Bigfoot. If the research is solid, it will speak for itself. The fact that Melba is already gearing up the spin machine should make everyone leery. The fact that she's been planning to commercialize this from the very beginning should also raise red flags. Legitimate scientists do not file copyrights for their findings before the data is in.

  26. I do so appreciate hearing the words from Melba, but they are words of desperation now. If the "Science is Sound" then the Psychology (hers) is also sound. She's soon going to give blame and point fingers at individuals. She doesn't need to say anything to bring down her project and this is what she's doing now. If I were her, I wouldn't utter another word until published. Give us one sentence and we'll write a book, making it up as we go.

    My guess is the "Paper" is in Russia now because she wouldn't still be commenting on an American website if it was still in America. They tend to read English here (and websites). At least we still have Igor to keep us informed. Does her disclosure mean the NDA is over? Can anyone else out there provide juicy info since the NDA is over? Can I get a reach-around, maybe just a group hug?

  27. I think everyone needs to take a chill pill. I hear Melba is going to take her fiercest critics to the Kentucky derby where she is going to have them see live bigfoot braid a champion stallion's hair while eating one of Michigan's finest blueberry bagels. Then it's off to squatch built stock structure to meet with an official from the Vatican to discuss the angelic nature of the Sasquatch DNA. Of course, everyone will be wearing tinfoil hats to prevent the squatches from reading the minds of those present. Just you wait. The bleevers will have the last laugh after all. Footers unite!

    2. @anon 8:28 - Les is entitled to an opinion, but to ask him to prove a DNA study is ignorant - Other researcher's with labs and access to sequencers and both same and diff source material will write papers confirming or denying the findings of another researcher's paper of this caliber - not comment posters. I'm sure Les has a modern DNA Sequencer worth hundreds of thousands laying around his home unused in corner just waiting for this opportunity.

      The level of moronic posts in here is apexing.

    3. I don't think he was asking Les to prove the study, think he was asking him to prove Ketchum knows her stuff and has the data to back it up. I would have said to Les "oh yeah you know this how? Have you seen the study? Nope then you don't know!"

    4. Anon 8:47,
      Shut up you fucking retarded douche. You know real sophists were often moderately successful in getting people to accept their flawed arguments, but you fucks just waist my time. You're not fooling anyone you shit sack.

      Les stated that Ketchum “knows her stuff and has the data to back it up”. I asked him to support his claim, and Les could not. He does not necessarily need a “DNA sequencer” to back up his claim. He needs to explain how he “knows” that Ketchum “knows her stuff and has the data to back it up”. Furthermore if he does need to use a “DNA sequencer” to know that she “knows her stuff and has the data to back it up” then (if he doesn't own one) he shouldn't be flapping his gums because he is saying that he knows things that he doesn't know (which is lying).

      To recap:
      1. Les pulled something out of his ass and presented it as truth.
      2. I told Les to back up his statement.
      3. Les could not and attempted to change the subject.
      4. You attempted to tell me that Les does not have to back up his statements and should be free to Lie unchallenged.
      5. I told you to go kill yourself because you are a retarded, inbred, dick-head who has no right to exist.

      Oh yeah, that reminds me, I forgot to tell you to go kill yourself because you are a retarded, inbred, dick-head who has no right to exist.

      Seriously, the person who makes the outrageous claim (that Ketchum has data that backs up her nonsense) is the one who has to support their claims or fuck off. If Les would need a gene sequencer to make a claim then he has no right to make that claim without one. Your preschool level sophistry will not fool adults. Now fuck off and die.

    5. Merchant is that you?

      So, I ask the same thing you ask of Les (since you've called him a liar), and if you fail you are indeed a hypocrite.

      Prove Melba does not understand how to handle a sample, sequence a sample, and compare said sample to other known genomes (blast search).

      Waiting for your awesome proof. :)

    6. If not Merchant then some other arrogant asshole they're all in total disarray now and fear of this study, that's obviously why they're exorcising their lost lives bitterness here 24/7. It's game over for these flat earth apers.

      Delete
    7. I think you guys are the real Flat Earth Society here, the only people here that won't listen to anyone else and choose to ignore the real evidence right under their nose, that she is a sham! We don't fear her study because we don't believe in it we think it could be bunk and she's using it for some self promotion (like nearly all reasearchers in Bigfoot) and that it's another case of people getting excited about another load of Bigfoot bs. Problem is that you guys are all pinning your hopes on this with blinkered vision and your ear defenders on unable to look objectively at the situation because it speaks to an existing theory you have about the creature.

      What you guys gonna do if she's proved wrong? What happens if Sykes or the guys Bart Cutino hired to test the steak come back with different results? Are you gonna say that it was a conspiracy against her and suppression of the real truth or are you gonna throw your hands in the air and say "whoops, guess I was wrong!"? My bet is the conspiracy route because you just won't give up on it and actually say you were wrong because you're unable to accept real facts put in front of you. Before one of you says us sceptics are the same with Melba's facts we've not seen the study yet and neither have you. What we can say is she seems like an unreliable source for information, if the crazy guy on the corner says the world is gonna end do you believe him? Nope but if the strange lady on the corner says Bigfoot's a human and deserves constitutional rights you accept without looking at the facts.

    8. Still waiting for the hypocrite to prove his challenge in 10:09 above. What's a matter potty mouth - you can't deliver?

      9:38 if Melba is proven wrong we are all OK with that, but you've got no proof that she hasn't put together what she is claiming (a study containing BF DNA Sequences). And, we hope other reports can be done that confirm or deny these sequences, or their phylogeny tree. There's no conspiracy here, we are just alarmed a Scientist can be shot down without anyone reading the paper yet or allowing for peer review and publication. These are character attacks and not attacks on the science at hand. Do not mix up stories or opinions of the publishing scientist with the data and claims in the paper unless you want to be reminded of your logical failure. Many a scientist has had some esoteric hobbies and oddities in their personal life (Einstein included) - but that does not detract from the paper submitted - only holes in methodology, counter evidence, and non-reproducible results can do that. Merchant can do 100 hours of youtube vids, but it changes nothing.

      Delete
    9. How many years has she talked about this paper?

      Delete
    10. As neither of us have seen the paper we do not know either way, that is correct I don't know for sure it's a hoax or bad science and the other side does not know for sure that Ketchum's conclusions are valid. What I'm shocked at is the people who are 100% in total agreement with Melba without seeing the study either and who are making massive bold statements about it validity and how it's gonna shock the world or destroy religion and modern science. These are the Flat Earthers to me, these are just exhibiting pure unadulterated blind faith in something they not seen or read and are unable to accept criticism of it. You may be fine with the results being proven wrong and welcoming Sykes or someone else's results but these people won't. As much as sceptics are crying bs these people are already beginning to establish elaborate conspiracy theories that there is a mysterious group determined to hide the "truth" from the masses! Scepticism is natural, it's a survival instinct to not trust things without seeing them to look at evidence surrounding something and to be weary of it. Blind acceptance is not natural outside of cults, religions and other less favourable groups. All I'm saying is there are people seeing warning signs about this study because of the person conducting the study, that should be a natural response untill we are proven other wise, right?

    11. I just realized something today, if bart's labs or Sykes prove Sierras steak is a bear or coyote for example, ketchums whole study crumbles under because I've read heard previous quotes about her doing a full genome on this steak.

      Mark my words if this happens that bleevers won't blame ketchum, they'll blame the people, cutino who is one of their sane, diligent researchers, that did what they said they would do. Mark my words, every excuse in book will come and sykes will be accused of having a pre-set agenda and Cutino will be accused of trying to discredit ketchum. It's a joke

  32. I was thinking that there must either be a full moon or there was a mass breakout at the local insane asylum. Upon consulting the lunar calender, and checking the news, apparently neither has happened. My third and final guess would be that many immature teenagers whose unsuitable parents failed to adequately prepare them for Bigfoot knowledge, and consequently are now barely clinging to reality at the thought of an 800 lb x 8 foot tall hairy person walking through the wall of their bedroom at night to rip every appendage from their bodies, are all now attempting to coverup the fear that reverberates to their very core, by masking it with the immaturity that their unsuitable parents bestowed upon them.

    1. You're right it's a major embarrassment for the human gene pool to have grown men act this way in their futile opposition to this DNA study, I bet they don't tell their mothers about the language they've regressed back to here.
      Just proves the human race is indeed getting dumber and unwilling to learn anything new, here because it challenges their dwindling manhood so out comes the aggression. LMFAO

      Delete
    2. I think if there is proof that the human race is dumbing down it's the people do willing to cling to Ketchum's study with unshakeable convictions despite not having seen it yet. That's what is really worrying this blind faith in Ketchum's study what happened to looking at the facts, no not the Lindsay rumours but the actual facts about Ketchum? Not everyone slaging Melba off is a non-believer, or jealous of her discovery, a misogynist, a government agent paid to post sceptical comments on Bigfoot sites or someone who obsessed with the idea it's an ape not a human! Some people just think she's taking us all for a ride, that she is unreliable, that she has maybe come to conclusions based on her beliefs molding the results to fit a predetermined outcome and that she seems a little bit crazy. No matter how hard you try to believe in something it won't make it real or what you've always believed it to be. Truth is there will be a real reason why it's been rejected and returned for revisions but you guys will just make up some story about repression of the truth or cry conspiracy when the most sensible answer will probably be right, it's bs.

    1. If her science is good, as it truly seems to be, then it should be accepted. Unless of course mainstream science prefers us not to know.

    2. Well if Sykes is mainstream science and he too is investigating the same topic then obviously there is interest in it. This argument that science is trying to repress the truth about Bigfoot is obviously untrue if an Oxford professor is doing a study on it. Ketchum has continually promised that this paper will be released soon and each time there is a press release issued with an excuse as to why it's not appeared, Sykes hasn't done this that's the difference here. Sykes set a timetable that he's not been able to keep to if he also keeps issuing press releases promising publication and never delivering then I'm sure he'll get the same treatment. Ketchum's bad rep is a lot of her own making by the way this media circus has happened with also a lot of help from Lindsay's heresay about her wild claims which are hard to dispell when your press agent's name is Forestpeople and you call for constitutional rights for Bigfoot. Face it she's unreliable and maybe just a little nuts.

      Delete
    3. Hmmm not so fast there jock. She's released stuff saying things she probably shouldn't have yes, but that's the only difference, her study is way more massive than Sykes' hence the time it's taken so far. Plus the serious obstacles of US media and mainstream science all wanting it to fail, the official USofA doesn't want to acknowledge the existence of this species for social or political and religious reasons so science has to play along with that. Totally unscientific reactions proving Ketchum a genuine trooper deserving all our support for sticking to it, any scorn should be directed at her cowardly enemies instead not this strong and brave Texas lady.

      Though you are a lying troll, still I'd like to ad: maybe one day soon many credibilities will come down to zero because of the delays this study, including that of some US journals and journal editors.

How much more ridiculous does Melba's behavior and her claims have to get before you footers will realize "Hey this woman is actually completely out to lunch?"

    Come on. Everything associated with bigfoot is a clown show. How about this. If this paper is published in a reputable academic journal, I will take it all back. However, when this paper is either scrapped as a hoax or published in one I'd Burtsev's BS Russian journals, the footers will all scream that its a grand conspiracy.

  45. Fair enough.
    Just, "Finding bigfoot" is only circular, no reasoning.

    I for one will not scream conspiracy. Though, there is a word "conspiracy" in a dictionary. These things do exist, and do not funcion as a mystery board of secret hyperpowerful personas sitting and deciding our fates in the dark. We are sheep controlling ourselves when we sense danger approaching our asses. In "real" science, suppression and hoaxing for the benefit of a prevailing paradigms occured many times.

    Anyway, as I said - fair enough. Cheers mate.
