Nat Geo Science Blog on Ketchum DNA Publication: "You should be laughing by this point"


One of the first blogs to report on the Ketchum DNA publication is the Science Blog by National Geographic. It doesn't seem like they have read the full manuscript yet, but already, they are already bemoaning the $30 upfront cost of the paper and Ketchum's self-publication (on her own website) and "funky-ugly" website layout:

Well, she says she bought an existing journal and renamed it (the Journal of Cosmology was on the market, and I hoped most fervently that that was it…but no, JoC is still online). So she owns the journal. It’s now called De Novo.

Then she came out with a special edition. It’s Volume 1, Issue 1. It contains precisely one paper, hers.

You should be laughing by this point.

The online journal is a mess. The layout is funky-ugly, it’s difficult to figure out how to actually get to the paper, and when you navigate to it, it’s got a wretched little “Buy Now” button imbedded in a couple of intersecting blocks of color in a hideous table-like layout. It reminds be of the esthetics of JoC.

Anyway, it’s $30 to buy a paper so bad they had to build a custom journal around it to get it published. Not interested.

    2. Yup, this is pretty much what was expected. Way to represent the field Dr. Retard!!!!

    3. Wow, you'd think National Geographic could at least afford a literate blogger who could spell.

      The grammatical and spelling errors are on the original page, "in partnership with National Geographic."

      If you write in partnership with one of the top magazines in the world, then prove you are semi-literate, you are writing on toilet paper, and your opinion is worth just as much as that, the used variety at that.

      That blog roll is truly written on a bog roll.

    4. Maybe he didn't want to waste $30 on what is most likely a load of bunk that none of the other journals would touch because simply put the science is bad! So how long before Curtino and his scientists who tested Smeja's steak chime in....

    9. Not to worry, Nat Geo is also expert about BBQ - they just listed the top 10 places in the U.S. that have the best BBQ.

      Maybe they should drop $169 for an annual subscription to the New England Journal of Medicine! Then they can update themselves about DNA research!

    2. EVERYONE SHOULD BE LAUGHING?

      Apparently Shawn you and Team Tazor think this is funny but it's not FUNNY!

      She is destroying everything that has to do with any real research! You don't care!

      Soon no one will care and any real proof REAL PROOF will get laughed at!

      This sets everyone back-soon no one will trust any person who works on this subject! Including National Geographic!

      Wow, really funny!

      JUNK SCIENCE - THAT'S WHAT EVERYONE WILL THINK - and can you blame anyone?

      Not that you care, if you did this blog would be reporting in a much different style than it is!!!!

      Horrible just horrible!
      FAN THE PLAMES SHAWN! That's what she and all these liars need to make money!!

      & your little buddy killed a juvenile Sasquatch! You in the way Bud!! Move over!!

    3. Totally agree. I have been speaking out against this. They do nothing but increase the stigma on real research. It puts people of every kind off from the subject.

      Now the Sykes report is the life line that they all will cling too. He may just deliver the killing blow instead.

    6. Hate to say it, but I agree with the others. In between that awful "Finding Bigfoot" show and now this anyone who gives a damn about their professional reputation will steer well clear of the topic. The only exception will be if someone actually captures a living specimen or can manage a relatively intact corpse. Anything else is going to be met with derision thanks to the 'friendly fire' of our supposed allies.

    1. Shawn if i were you i would be very careful about what i posted. Many many people are associated with this study. According to what i have heard you have already made 2 different posts that leave you wide open for a lawsuit. Does copyright infringement and slander sound familiar? Be very careful. You and your moron friends over at tazer need to use some discretion about what you put up. Doersn't matter if you like it or not. This is going mainstream and nobody is going to stop it. People will quickly abandon this blog when it becomes available onn cnn/fox/abc. You have the opportunity to at least save face and do the right thing and not look like an idiot.

    1. I think it isn't just the question of finding $30 it's the ethical side to it. She's playing us all for suckers and some people feel that giving her the money is accepting that it's fine to do this. If she really gave a damn give it up for free same with the Ericson project and any other Bigfoot evidence, if it means so much that this creature is proved real to you (the researcher) let the world see it for free. Show everyone the error of our ways not pimp out your evidence for $30 a look see, want science to take the subject seriously stop acting like Carnies.

You'll regret it because by this time tomorrow it'll have been ripped apart by pretty much every biologist, geneticist and high school science teacher because it's bunk. Of course the science mafia comments will come out but that's mainly from people who are pretty much dumb as a post the people with smarts (both believers and sceptics) know it's bad science. Maybe Sasquatch does exist but this is baloney and everybody is been taken for a ride.

    oh but wait what am i saying, this site gives merchant a venue to express his "views" and anything "tazer approved"... one has to wonder why exactly someone like merchant is even acknowledged.... but anyone else is targeted... and i mean anyone... from Paulides to ketchum et all... the motives of this site are suspect.

A friend of mine Mitchell Wilson, pointed out the publisher last night, which I checked out and realized how much of a joke it turned out to be for Melba Ketchum. In the science world, she has sunk what little credibility she had.

    Well we still have my friend Dr. Sykes as well as a few other studies taking place, lets see what they come up with. I will say this, it looks very promising that we have more than one upright walking ape species worldwide.

    1. It makes you want to start doomsday prepping! "Yeah my name is anon and me and my family are prepping for the day when all rational, logical and reasonable thought processes in the average American cease to exist. I believe based on what I have seen amoung Bigfoot believers online, that humanity is doomed to become irrational, anti-interlectual, paranoid conspiracy nuts who value blind faith over any kind of logical empiricism. I fear that soon people will mentally de-evolve and goldfish will provide more reasonable debate than the average footer, more than anything I believe encouraging an environment where people can say there is a 8ft tall man-ape who inhabits the 4th dimension and travels using portals and orbs is leading to a society which does not recognise mental illness but accepts delusions as a valid opinion. I also worry that the current anti-science sentiment will mean it will be replaced in schools with bible study and readings of Atlas Shrugged or the Three Little Pigs. This of course will bring about the end of the world eventually as someone will inevitably try to bring on the Rapture by blowing up Utah with all our current nuclear arsenal because God told him to do it. To prep for this I have decided to be proactive and plead with the believers on Bigfoot Evidence not to accept the findings of Melba Ketchum or fall for another Rick Dyer hoax, after all the best defense is a good offence. We need to nip it in the bud right now before it's too late!"

  30. The nationally organized, Bigfoot Bigot coalition, has had a long time to come up with a scheme to neutralize and/or discredit the DNA study. Their first mission was to make sure nobody passed it in peer review. But they apparently failed there. Their second mission was to make sure that no big name scientific journal published it. They succeeded there. Their third mission was to make sure that it got no media attention. They succeeded there. Their forth mission was to discredit it on the internet based on the success of their first three missions. Bigfoot Bigots are everywhere. But then, so are the Bigfoot people. Too bad that they are invisible.

  31. the Science Blog by National Geographic

    *sigh* Folks, the reason why it's spelled "scienceblogs.com" is because it's a whole collection of blogs, each by a different author, hosted by National Geographic. Nat Geo has no input on the contents.

    As mentioned above, the blog is the ScienceBlogs version of Pharyngula. PZ Myers and Chris Clarke, the authors, post their science posts both there and at freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/ ; all the other posts are only on freethoughtblogs.com. This is a result of scienceblogs.com having gotten into financial trouble and having been bought by Nat Geo.

    Now, let me just say that DeNovo (spelled DeVono on one of the site's pages) asks for manuscript submissions, like a scientific journal, but there are no instructions to authors (just a list of publishing options) and no place to actually submit a manuscript. That’s not a scientific journal, it’s a cargo cult.
