Until I came across this article I never really gave the human-Bigfoot bond much thought. But one of the advantages of being an independent scholar is that I’m free to think about things that it might be imprudent to ponder in more formal settings. And when I thought about Bigfoot and what his/her DNA analysis might reveal, it reminded me the scientific community tizzy that occurred when some suggested that Neanderthals and early humans might have interbred. In that particular scenario, the conclusion seems to boil down not so much to whether they did or didn’t, but now many were involved if they did. I wonder if the polar and grizzly bears debate the reality of the polar-grizzly bear hybrid (in their own polar and grizzly bear ways) so earnestly.
