Hmmm, mythical beasts is certainly a bit extreme in the plausibility stakes.......But, you're saying cryptozoology is a dubious subject too?
Interesting that you are not closed to the idea of aliens, yet seem to think cryptozoology is bunkum! Double standards methinks.
Ok, what about Carcharadon Megalodon to give you ONE example? It's extinct and therefore can be included under the cryptozoology umbrella as an
object of study. However a number of scientists **think** it may not be. They do not see any reason for why it doesn't still live out there
somewhere. THAT'S an excample of a typical cryptid. It's not dubious, nor is it implausible or the ramblings of an idiot. Granted, some cryptids
probably are the brainchild of idiots, but don't discount the serious research so readily.
Or try Google for plenty more info!!
I can't be bothered looking for links to all the sites giving you info on serious research into cryptozoology, but try the ones below. They detail
recent findings and provides news on how **scientists** are conducting serious **research** into the subject right now! Cryptozoology is the study of
hidden animals, be them new species or sub-species or creatures we thought were extinct.
Yes, I'm irritated because the serious subjects end up being tarred with the same brush as the ones which should be treated with derision. Please
think before you post!
[EDIT]It's comments like yours which are why the content is perhaps suffering. Too many people debunking subjects by just saying they are nonsense,
yet providing no actual reasoning for their scepticism or mockery.
Please backup your statement with some reason for why cryptozoology is "dubious".
