In a strange turn of events, DNA diagnostics Inc. have taken on the DNA of the supposed ‘Bigfoot’ or ‘Sasquatch’. In their findings this week they claim, ‘Researchers’ extensive DNA sequencing of a hair sample suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago as a hybrid cross of modern Homo sapiens with an unknown primate species.’
It is amazing to most Christians to see the scientific community claim such outrageous things. First, they claim things they cannot prove by observation. This is the first rule of science, proof through observation, which evolution has never been able to do overall. It remains a theory and has been shoved down everyone’s throat. I guess it would be impossible to observe a ‘Sasquatch’ or Bigfoot’ 15,000 years ago. Of course, scientific eyes are rolling at this common sense approach.
Let’s look at more of their findings and see if there could be any ‘common sense’ explanations to them. They supposedly confirmed that there really is a ‘Bigfoot’ or ‘Sasquatch’ in existence. Many unsubstantiated claims to having seen a ‘real’ creature walking upright but looking like a hairy beast in North America have been reported over the years. None were ever captured, so how did they retrieve DNA with an absolute certainty that it is from the ‘Bigfoot’ or ‘Sasquatch’ novel Hominin hybrid? They didn’t. How do they come to the conclusion it is a ‘novel Hominin hybrid’? That is the question. Are there any living examples, or is this just a catchall phrase that the scientists use in the circles of evolution?
OK, so they found some hair in the back woods and examined it for DNA evidence of something they wish to prove. That is not impressive. Even they say the samples are ‘purported Sasquatch samples’. It’s an interesting story, but we want to know if it is real. We want real solid tests, not tests based on fables.
They speak with authority that what they found is in fact, ‘hybrid cross of modern Homo sapiens with an unknown primate species’. Did it ever occur to anyone that the ‘unknown’ portion of the sample they were looking at could be from a costume or a mixed real hair getup? Could this be a modern day person who has a problem with their genes and grew a whole lot of hair?
In their study, they took 20 whole mitochondrial genomes and ended up with just three whole nuclear genomes after utilizing next generation sequencing. Their conclusion is that the Sasquatch’s father was a male of an unknown hominin species who mated with a female Homo sapien. They more specifically indicate by their wording that this occurred over time because they say they are a result of male(s) of unknown hominin species who mated with female Homo sapiens(s). So basically, a non-human male mated with a modern day human woman. Is this even possible? Where is this society of non-human males who like to raid the bedrooms of modern day females to continue their evolution? Where have they been for 15,000 years?
The point is, they did not have conclusive evidence that the sample they were testing was from a real ‘Bigfoot’ creature. They have not captured nor seen one up close, but they spend lots of money to be able to give statements that sound as if they found proof, when in fact they are still living in the ‘twilight-zone’ on this one.
What next? Will they try and say that the ‘unknown’ primate species was from outer-space? In the real world people play pranks; they dress up in animal fur on Halloween, and whose to say this hasn’t been the biggest ‘spoof’ of all leaving the scientific community duped the most because they want to prove a theory.
They are showing that they ‘care’ by demanding, ‘…public officials and law enforcement to immediately recognize the Sasquatch as an indigenous people ‘.What ‘Sasquatch’? Where are they? Where can we find them? Recognizing them would only serve to require funding for such things as museums and research of still an elusive and unproved to exist Sasquatch or Bigfoot.
So, they found modern human DNA along with, ‘non-human, non-archaic hominin, and non-ape sequences’. Again, common sense tells us this could be a human all dressed up to either play a prank or foster this evolutionary ‘theory’ that is taught as fact in our schools and colleges. If this is a person inside a suit, or someone with Ambras Syndrome, yes hunters should not shoot them. But there’s been no raid on the Sasquatch because there aren’t any to shoot. So again, where did this mysterious sample of ‘hair’ from a ‘Sasquatch’ come from?
Dr. Melba S. Ketchum of Nacogdoches, Texas and her team have been testing this purported Sasquatch hair for five years now. That is a long time to test something when you have no proof of it’s origin, but maybe long enough to formulate a theory that will go well with the current political correctness in science.
The Bible clearly explains how we all got here. ‘In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth'(Genesis 1.1). God also clearly explains the nature of species in Genesis 1:24, ‘And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.’ God clearly has made a distinction between species and has further set it up so they procreate within those limits.
God told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply. Multiply what? It is obvious he wanted them to multiply the human race. The animals do not have to be told to do so, but mankind is made up of thinking, reasoning beings who need a bit of prodding to do the right thing ever since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden. Let’s face it, we’ve been contrary ever since sin came into the world. We tend to destroy, not build up. Can you imagine what the world would look like if we had built up rather than torn down, if we had multiplied like God said without selfishness or murder in our hearts? What if we had shown love, shared with one another, helped one another, and loved God most of all. Would we be living in a world that is full of war and falling apart as it is? Absolutely not.
So, this fairytale sounds all professional and everything, but it’s quite clear it is easier to believe in an intelligent designer than it is to believe in fairy tales, even if they are signed off by the scientific community. It takes more faith to believe in evolution than in God’s creation of the world. But hey, what’s a few million dollars for faulty research when there are people who can’t even afford food?
