You seem like a good guy, but digging and ripping into Dr.Ketchum is pointless as 4 other labs also collaborated in testing. For me to agree with you,
I'd have to be convinced as many as ten other people had no idea what they were doing, or looking at, and agreed to perpetuate a hoax. That they all
did this knowing they would be ripped apartby the world media.
You may not like the way this was handled, you may not ''approve'' of the way it was released however there is no reason for saying the science isn't
there. Until we see it no one knows. I am encouraged another geneticist who does know apparently, what that press release said, has no problems with
what's been released to date.
Matter of factly that's exactly where this stands.
Hey Caver....yeah, I am a good guy
See, it's not about whether or not I
approve of something, but whether or not the claims make any sense and, yes, how credible the source of
such an extraordinary claim is.
Paulides is not an independent source and he's an ex-cop and not a scientist. Besides, he has more than one dog in this race.
I'm not sure who you are referring to as "another geneticist", do you mean Igor Burtsev?
Burtsev is not a scientist either, in any field, let alone Genetics. He runs the russian "International Center for Hominology" which sounds very
important and official, but is the same as Erich von Daeniken running an "International Center for Ancient Aliens". According to their web site,
Burtsev was "a candidate of historical sciences", whatever that means. Hence, whatever he says has no weight either.
You say that 4 other labs came to the same conclusions (and yes, I read that too). Why does Ketchum not name those labs? It would surely raise the
credibility of her statements, but she doesn't.
You say yourself, "until we see it, no one knows". True enough, thing is, I doubt we'll ever see anything beyond the press release except for more
And that is, to use your words, "exactly where this stands".
