I feel that it is absolutely impossible that the information you are printing to the effect that the DNA Results obtained by the Sasquatch Genome Project are not from Homo sapiens cognatus, popularly known as Sasquatch or Bigfoot, has not a remote possibility of being true.
Your allegations that the DNA evidence obtained is instead are from opossums or "other species" that are not identified, is among the most ludicrous thing I have ever heard.
Anyone who has made any comments that the DNA Evidence points to opossum or "other species" has obviously not read the Article "Novel North American Hominins" That is extremely obvious to me.
You are saying, in effect, that 34 research organizations, from 14 US States and 2 Canadian Provinces submitted 111 opossum or other (unnamed and unspecified) species, that they belived had come from Sasquatch or Bigfoot.
You are effectivly claiming that the researchers who collected these 111 DNA samples that were studied, many of whom were Ph.D Biologists, are all grossly incompetent. That is far from the truth.
That claim is refuted extensively in the Article, "Novel North American Hominins" by Denovo.
I will quote from that Article, a relevant portion, regarding screening of the hair samples that were incorporated into the study.
"Prior to DNA analysis, all samples were screened to eliminate common wildlife species using a variety of methodologies including microscopic morphological examination and comparison against a large reference collection of known North American wildlife hair. Further, utilizing several morphological criteria, unusual characteristics were seen in hair texture, diameter ratios, medullary structures and cuticle patterns. The purported Sasquatch hairs also demonstrated elongated hair roots. Taken together, these morphologic differences indicate non-human hair that is also inconsistent with hair from known wildlife species. Over one hundred specimens survived this initial screen and were judged sufficiently different from human and wildlife samples to undergo DNA analysis."
Now does that sound like it is very unlikely that all of the Hair samples could have been from opossum or "other species"?
The hair samples were carefully screened by experts. That is a FACT.
The mtDNA found by the researchers was not from oppossum or any recognized animal. It was consistently human.
Another quote from the Article Novel North American Hominins should make that perfectly clear.
Mitochondrial DNA analysis of all samples tested in three independent laboratories unambiguously confirmed exclusively human haplotypes from several different geographic areas. Further, Supplementary Figures 1, 2, 3, 7, 8 and 9 show six phylogenetic trees from whole mitochondrial sequences that clearly show human mitochondrial DNA. The Figures also support that the mitochondrial genomes derived from the three whole genome samples were consistent with the previous mitochondrial DNA sequences obtained at the beginning of the study.
I would suggest that you ask for proof from your "“highly reputable geneticist,” to back up the claims that he has made.
Dr. Ketchum has publicly refuted his ridiculous assertions and since he refused the offer of samples that he could test for himself, he obviously has no interest in the truth. He is inevitably one of those people who were taught in college that there was no possibility of an unclassified bipedal hominin in North America.
