The Oxford-Lausanne Collateral Hominid Project has been created to try and entice people and institutions with collections of cryptozoological material to submit it for analysis. Anyone with a sample of organic remains can submit details of where and when it was collected, among other data.
"Mainstream science remains unconvinced by these reports both through lack of testable evidence and the scope for fraudulent claims. However, recent advances in the techniques of genetic analysis of organic remains provide a mechanism for genus and species identification that is unbiased, unambiguous and impervious to falsification. It is possible that a scientific examination of these neglected specimens could tell us more about how Neanderthals and other early hominids interacted and spread around the world."
Results from DNA analysis will be prepared for publication in a peer-reviewed science journal. No results will be released until any embargoes on publication have passed.

What I give the man correct in, is that there is no missing link, between man and primates. The reason, why there is none, is because mans ancestor lived in the forrests. Haven't you understood this, yet?
In ancient times, the primates were supreme over man ... thus man was in the forrests, and the primates were on the steps and savannahs. Man grew up, having to use his intellect to hunt and survive, while the primate grew up only needing his supreme strength, like most mammals. Thus man lived in the jungles, and was hunted ...
That is why you don't find fossils of primates after a certain era, and that is also why you don't find fossils of man or the missing link, prior to that era.

If they're trying to find evidence to find a starting point for searching for and capturing one, what would they do with it if they did capture one? Nothing good I bet.
If you guys found one would you capture it and run tests on it?edit on 23-5-2012 by Bleeeeep because: (no reason given)
