Scientists Claim Five-Year Study Has Yielded DNA Evidence of Bigfoot

by Shane McGlaun

If you ever watched the 80s flick Harry and the Hendersons, you may wondered if Bigfoot could actually exist. I can’t say one way or another if the mythical Sasquatch is a living creature or nothing more than a figment of the imagination. A group of scientists from claim to have concluded a five-year DNA study that is under peer review and confirmed the existence of Bigfoot.

According to the scientists, they have been able to sequence 20 whole mitochondrial genomes and have used next-generation sequencing to obtain three whole nuclear genomes from samples claimed to be from a Sasquatch. The scientists say that DNA evidence suggests that Bigfoot is a human relative.

The scientists claim that the creature known as Bigfoot came to be approximately 15,000 years ago as a hybrid crossbreed of modern Homo sapiens and an unknown primate species. The scientists state that data indicates the Sasquatch was the result of males from an unknown hominin species crossing with female Homo sapiens.

    I am open to the idea that bigfoot could be real. But the chances are pretty low seeing how not even a skeleton has been found.

    However, this just sounds like a bunch of hogwash. 15,000 years isn’t that long ago in Human history. 25,000 years ago Humans had already crossed the Bering Strait. Homo sapiens sapiens evolved 200,000 years ago. We diverged form the Afican Ape between 5 and 15 millon years ago. And some how just 15,000 years ago there was an ape that was still close enough to humans in DNA and had 23 chromosomes (great apes have 24) to produce a fertile offspring. And no evidence has ever been found of this Ape. Yeah, I don’t think so.

    I’m pretty sure this will be debunked. An evolutionary jump (Hypertrichosis, full body hair)amoung a population is more possible then the crossing of a human and an ape.
