Dr. Bryan Sykes Has Not Even Begun Testing Yet

Big Surprise Bigfoot DNA Rumors Inaccurate
Yesterday (12-11-12), Robert Lindsay reported a leak from "someone close to the Melba Ketchum camp." In the report Lindsay wrote, "...Sykes agrees with Dr. Melba Ketchum’s Bigfoot DNA study that there is indeed a new hominid in North America. However, Sykes disagrees with Ketchum regarding the origin of this new hominid."

UPDATE: according to Rhetman Mullis, Sykes has already gone through with the an initial test. The samples he has so far have tested to not be human.


We have it on good authority that Dr. Bryan Sykes has not even begun testing on his Bigfoot DNA study. This is from two independent sources that have heard this firsthand from Dr. Sykes Himself. 

When Dr. Sykes begins testing he will do the initial screening with mtDNA (Mitochondrial DNA) loci. In other words and in plain English, he going to start with the DNA that is inherited by the mothers. This makes sense since he literally wrote the book on Mitochondrial DNA.

In Dr. Bryan Sykes' book, "The 7 Daughters of Eve, " Dr. Sykes uses mtDNA to determine that all modern Europeans can be traced back to seven distinguished groups. It is a book worth reading, since the last third ends with fictional scenarios of how the 7 daughters might have lived.

Over all we wanted to report that Bryan Sykes has not begun testing and when he does, he will start with the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), which only reveals information from the mother's side.

Michael JR Jose, in a review of Dr. Sykes book makes an interesting note, "[mtDNA] has number of key characteristics which make it an excellent biological clock (which 'ticks' once every ten thousand years). The oldest genetic line goes back 45,000 years and the most recent 10,000.

  2. I believe this is such a high profile subject that the people involved who really know whats happening are not going to risk commenting on a study thats not been completed or published yet unlike the Ketchum study which has become a media circus.

  3. I've been reading Shady Neighbors. So far, it's pretty good. If this study proves that there is a new species, it could cause ramifications like shutting down mining or logging business. You know how crazy these environmentists get...

  5. CIA,CSIS,MI6,MOSSAD and all other intelligence agencies will be covertly influencing announcements under "National Security" due to their use of the dna of these beings. We may not recieve truth at all for a long time.

  6. Cant wait for the results. We have all waited for authentic DNA tests, and this will clinch things.

  7. Some of us already support Dr. Ketchum. She has gone to great time, effort and expense as well. A pity someone who is an expert in their field has to be judged by a peer group. Science is flawed in that aspect.

    1. Cheers Jerry! Flawed because you don't agree with findings contrary to your opinion . . ? Sorry mate but that does make the peer review routine "flawed", rather it serves to reinforce the methodology, you know, the tiresome process that ultimately separates the wheat from the chaff. Good to remember that there is a significant, yea, even intentional, chasm between opinion and fact. Cheers!
