Credibility of Journal that Published Bigfoot DNA Findings Called into Question
Do you believe Bigfoot, aka Sasquatch, exists?
As if the idea of Bigfoot wasn't shrouded in enough mystery, the credibility of a scientific journal that has published findings based on reported Bigfoot DNA is being questioned.
The post goes on to say Texas geneticist Melba Ketchum, who, along with a team of experts in genetics, forensics, imaging and pathology, spent five years studying the DNA samples, acquired the rights to the journal and renamed it so as not to lose its "peer-reviewed" status. Peer-reviewed journals are scholarly journals that only publish articles that have passed through a review process.
The reports says the DNA study included 111 samples of alleged Sasquatch hair, blood, skin and other tissues.
