A team of researchers claim to have confirmed the existence of a North American hominin hybrid species ("Bigfoot") through DNA sequencing of hair samples. You buy it?

That's because we are always right!

Laugh now, but you won't be laughing in hell.

It's north Korea they also said Kim Jong II changed the weather with his birth, he invented the hamburger and is the best golfer in the world...Korea is not known for telling the truth

@FIAT Yes, just like Harry Potter is real because of the "historical documents" of his existence.

12/04/12 1:28 pm

people have seen "Bigfoot" or a similar creature all over the world since ancient times. I'm not saying Bigfoot exists but how could cultures with no contact with each other come up with the same creature?

Oh yes, just like the numerous historical documents of Santa claus

Ah CDFL, always bashing "religion". Try reading 'The Case for Christ' by Lee Strobel. If you consider yourself an intelligent, critical thinker, then you owe it to yourself to read it.

I speculate that the Bigfoot story probably started with a gorilla escaping into the woods way back in the day. When people saw it and didn't know what it was, voíla, Bigfoot.

Lolololololol don't go there. There is sooooo much more Religious evidence than you think, and science is constantly finding more.

Would you like to explain what you mean by that?

There's also researchers in North Korea who have found an ancient lair of a famous unicorn. Doesn't make it true because a scientist claims it. It's possible it's just normal hair with mutated DNA, due to something relatively simple.

The only proof I'll accept of Bigfoot's existence is habeas corpus...

@Janarus here's my issue. There have been so many hoaxes regarding the issue that until it's been peer reviewed and verified, I don't think it means anything yet. It's called skepticism.

They admit that in their claims. They say the results show a cross between a female hominid with a previously unknown male primate about 15000 years ago... I wanna see some real scientists get ahold of their work.

After the whole "world ending in 2012 because the Mayan calendar says so" thing..I'm a little skeptical about things like this

How do they know what big foots DNA is coded, nothing exists to compare it to!

I've never seen bigfoot but I've definitely seen my share of bigmouth's. Most of them were in Washington, D.C. ????

12/02/12 6:03 pm

You're an angry, pathetic little person.

Anything is possible, I suppose. I thought I saw a chupacabra once...

I'm open to the possibility that "Bigfoot" exists, but I remain unconvinced by this research...

12/02/12 2:42 pm

If you haven't seen me, you would believe in Bigfoot
My family called me the missing link my whole life.
Not a far stretch

I want to believe it! Haha so I said yes.

12/02/12 12:24 pm

I'm not saying this research has any validity. But just because someone called it Bigfoot does not mean that it has no credibility.
Look at the facts.

Who ever first called this Bigfoot should be executed. That kind of thinking is dangerous and harms legitimate research.

12/02/12 12:21 pm

Cross species mating is not impossible. But you people, the arch enemies of science and objective thinking, are too stupid to think for yourselves.

"Oh, some pinhead called it Bigfoot. Bigfoot=false. This research = false."

You people are not champions of science, you're pawns of public opinion.

12/02/12 12:17 pm

You stupid mother fuckers. Just because some pinhead reporter added the word Bigfoot unordered to get publicity doesn't mean that it's Bigfoot. Historically homosapiens have fucked everything that stands on legs. We have ~2% neandertal DNA in us, and neandertals are not our direct ancestors.

It's hard to believe something exists if only the fanatics or people looking for one actually "find" a Bigfoot. When random people start find bigfoots, then it will become more likely for me to believe.

I believe in Bigfoot. But this doesn't do much. I think Bigfoot is real though, has anybody watched finding Bigfoot?!?

Really, look at the percentages you moron. A 7% difference. Wow. If you're going to make fun of anybody for believing some dumb crap with no support look to republicans and their religion.

12/02/12 10:27 am

It's not about thinking they can know everything, it's about not thinking you KNOW something that cannot be known.

12/02/12 10:23 am

I don't understand why people equate a slightly smaller percentage of the other party agreeing with them to that party full heartedly believing the opposite choice.

12/02/12 10:23 am

I do believe some people believe in something we have little to no evidence about. I believe it's called religion. If they have faith about something with no evidence, then I can have a little faith in something we do.

And what are they comparing it to?

Nope. No science behind the claim.

12/02/12 9:21 am

A scientist's perspective is, I hate to say it, but laughable. I respect the work they do and what they believe, but the whole concept of "I only believe in what can be proven" is absurd! They can't possibly believe we have the means to find every piece of evidence in the world.

12/02/12 8:39 am

I find it so fascinating that whenever something having to do with science is asked Republicans doubt it more. #god #guns #gays

People of Walmart... Look, all hominid species can be seen in a day...I swear Neanderthal walked past me on the way to the game case just yesterday. Oh, scientist determined all European decent folk carry those genes. Can there really be a Bigfoot? Avid hunters will say no, never seen evidence.

12/02/12 8:27 am

I have spent more time in the woods than at home and have witnessed some strange stuff so I think its possible but it's not probable. Surely someone would have shot one by now.

12/02/12 8:12 am

Maybe not BigFoot as we think of him, but some species, sure.
