Sasquatch Genome Project Presents Evidence

By: Ellisha Rader Mannering - October 3, 2013

When it comes to believing in Bigfoot or Sasquatch, it seems like you are either a die hard believer or a complete skeptic. If you happened to be torn between believer and skeptic, you may want to consider the evidence brought force by the Sasquatch Genome Project researchers. This group of scientists recently released footage and DNA evidence that they said would prove the existence of Sasquatch.

The evidence was presented at a news conference held in Dallas on Tuesday. The researchers claim that they have been sequencing DNA from 3 different sasquatch genomes and have spent over 5 years on the project. The results of the study show that sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 13,000 years ago and is a hybrid cross between a primate and Homo sapiens.

“While the three Sasquatch nuclear genomes aligned well with one another and showed significant homology to human chromosome 11, the Sasquatch genomes were novel and fell well outside of known ancient hominin as well as ape sequences,” explains Melba Ketchum. “Because some of the mtDNA haplogroups found in our Sasquatch samples originated as late as 13,000 years ago, we are hypothesizing that the Sasquatch are human hybrids, the result of males of an unknown hominin species crossing with female Homo sapiens.”

While many people say their presentation is bologna, many other were excited to see the film evidence and believe it to be authentic. The team says they are not finished with their work and are still collecting evidence and working on DNA evidence. They plan to use the evidence to film a documentary in the near future.

    You know…. with the clowns we have running this country …. I am better off believing in Big Foot. I am sure there is something about Big Foot that is true. At least one fact. However, with our government, I am sure that nothing they say is the truth.

    Maybe once these Big Foot researchers solve the mystery of Big Foot, they can move on to solving the mystery of why our country is falling apart around us and why the American public is so catatonic about it.

    If there really is a bigfoot much less any legitimate science behind this, bring it forward and put BF on display. I wonder if they will press for voting rights and welfare once they understand how to get things for nothing in this country.

      Voting rights and welfare? Sure. But how much will Sasquatch have to pay to learn proper grammar? As much as you did?

    Well finally. Now the government can admit why they are so friggen messed up.

    The reason the country is falling apart is because of extremists in the republican party who refuse to work on anything
