    In other words:

    Melba Ketchum announces Bigfoot DNA results. Without the data.

    An interesting observation: Finding "unknown" DNA and assuming that proves something about bigfoot, even if it really is unknown DNA, is similar to seeing an "unidentified" flying object and assuming that means something about visitors from other planets. In short: it's stupid.

    Well, if the DNA came from hair samples, that's what we're dealing with. You say that like this DNA just sprouted up in a test tube. They say it came from hair, that's the interesting thing, DNA testing just confirms the authenticity of the hair.

    I admit, I just started watching the Youtube video in the original post and haven't read the article. Just enough to know the DNA samples came from hair, not just DNA smeared on a log or something.

    Do you actually not realize tha's the same thing? A hair sample? hair of what? There is no step that leads to that being "bigfoot."

    We can find evidence of extinct plants and animals, even microbes millions of years old but can't find one piece of real evidence of an animal that exists today? What's that tell ya?

    Hair of some unknown animal. If you believe the article, a human hybrid of some sort.

    No, they don't.

    They say "show us some evidence."

    Until then...

    That's not how DNA testing works.

    One can't "confirm" the authenticity of a hair sample using DNA testing, when attempting to "confirm" that the hair came from a previously unknown species. DNA testing allows you to match a sample of hair to a known species. You can't just "read" DNA and draw very many conclusions about where it came from.

    And, assuming that is correct (very unlikely given the history and actions of the researcher) it means exactly what you said. It doesn't tell us if that hybrid is "bigfoot" or looks like a squirrel monkey.

    Hair, scat, and teeth have been found... So why then have not definitive DNA results been released?

    Because (I asume) each time the DNA results come back as some known species.

    Yeah I wasn't trying to suggest they can look at the DNA and say "that's a bigfoot". But they can tell it's real hair and not from a known species from DNA testing.

    Fair enough. It's probably another hoax of a story anyway.

    You are correct, according to 100% of what I have seen.
