The Outing of David Paulides
Welcome back for a brand new season of As the Squatch Turns. In this season we will watch the drama of the Ketchum Supporters fall from glory. Just yesterday a blog by Team Tazers Tammy Murray, Co-Host of "Afterhours with Team Tazer" alongside Host Rictor Riolo, called out Paulides during a "lecture about Bigfoot DNA at the Science Museum of Oklahoma on Saturday, January 19th, 2013".
Tammy first sat through the lecture of artist "Harvey Pratt. An American forensic artist and Native American artist, who has worked for over forty years in law enforcement, completing thousands of composite drawings and hundreds of soft tissue postmortem reconstructions, he shared many examples of his drawings from witness descriptions of Bigfoot. He also referred to Bigfoot as a “Tribe of Humans”. Leading up to David Paulides lecture. "He opened with a history and credibility of his organization, the North America Bigfoot Search (NABS), whose purpose is to prove Bigfoot exists with scientific proof, as well as his involvement with MUFON (Mutual UFO Network).
His presentation began by explaining that the NABS was the only Bigfoot research organization that required a signed affidavit from witnesses to insure they are being truthful by accountability. Then things got weird when he talked of a person that saw a rectangular window open out of thin air and a Bigfoot step out of it, as well as orbs and other phenomenon, and that we should be open minded."
Really? A credible report involving a mystery window from another dimension? Please tell me more said no person with an IQ of more than 70. Ok dude I have no idea where you are getting your reports from but the reports I receive are from farmers complaining something is eating the apples off of their trees up to 12 feet high. Unless there are some elephants loose in TN that no one is aware of those animals sure don't need magic windows in space and time.
Tammy goes on to report. "He spoke of the Melba Ketchum DNA “White Paper” which had been submitted and that when it was published we would all be amazed at the results. There were 110 DNA samples collected and the results were going to show the world that Bigfoots are like humans." Tammy has been out spoken in the fact she holds no credibility to Ketchums DNA study. In fact when asked for a quote in regards to the Ketchum DNA study she said "The circus came to town".
Now the gloves were off. Tammy had a chance to ask questions from the audience. "At the end of the lecture, Paulides invited questions from the audience. Of course, I had to ask if any of those samples were from the Sierra Kills. The answer was, “Yes”. I also asked if they were from the same sample that recent test results proved were from bear with human contamination. He said, “No”. He also said that Smeja had lied to the authorities and was in fear of being arrested at any time."
She continued to ask questions, "After the Q & A there was a book signing table and I felt compelled to ask if the sample they had that showed human hybrid DNA was from the Sierra Kills “Bigfoot Steak”. The reply by Paulides was in a very defensive and harsh tone. He told me that Smeja sent a piece of flesh from a bear he killed to an alternate testing site to cover up for the lies to the authorities. But the sample that they had and still have was not bear."
OMG! Did I just read that right? David Pauldies called Justim Smeja a straight up liar! OK dude now those are fighting words. You had better have something to back that up with or this will get very messy. Now what are we going to do?
Well Tammy to the rescue once again. She quickly whips out her Footphone(©2013ATST) and calls Justin Smeja for a Quote as well as Bart Curtino, who ousted the Smeja DNA sample out to be bear contaminated with human not human/unknown Ape. "A phone call I made to Justin Smeja got this response: “Paulides’ comments are idiotic and moronic and are absolutely ridiculous.”
From Bart Cutino: “Paulides has never met Justin Smeja to make that accusation. I know he has never had a fear of being prosecuted and initiated contact with the California Department of Fish and Game to do a formal interview and allow them to test the tissue and they were not interested.”
Well there you have it footphone (©2013ATST) does it again. Tammy knows the people that David Pauldies is calling liars. Now what does he have to say? Well, not much at all. Tammy concludes this confrontation with “I am somewhat surprised that the Science Museum of Oklahoma would host a lecture with unproven theories and so heavily laden with biased opinions and obvious contempt for others involved in Bigfoot research that disagree with their conclusions and public statements."
I must agree. It is sad that when main stream organizations do recognize the bigfoot community it ends up being clowns like this with NOTHING to back up their claims. Everyone involved with the Ketchum study says "the Science is solid". I have heard that myself from several insiders with samples in the study. Without a release of DATA and someone other than these people refusing to prove their claims of lies and deception someone has to stand up and ask for the truth. Isn't that what bigfooting is about?
Come back for the next episode of As the Squatch Turns as we discuss "The Challenge of Bart Curtino".
