In the Spring of last year celebrated Geneticist Bryan Sykes announced that he would be taking on this monster we know as Bigfoot DNA. With a loud chorus the critics of Dr. Ketchum's Bigfoot DNA study celebrated this event. Now we would get results from a "real Genetics Expert" they said.
Sykes announced a very bold schedule for publishing a peer reviewed paper in less than a year! Even more ammunition for the critics of Dr. Ketchum since she has been struggling to get American Journals to review her study for a couple years.
Below is the timetable from the Wolson College Webite:
The project is divided into three phases.
SAMPLE SUBMISSION PHASE May – September 2012
DNA ANALYSIS PHASE September – November 2012
PUBLICATION PHASE November – December 2012
Well it is now the middle of January 2013 and amazingly NO PUBLISHED PAPER from Mr. Sykes! Where are the critics? Where are the attacks? Where are the conspiracy theorist? Where are the leaks from Robert Lindsey? Where are the post from Bigfoot Evidence harshly critical of Mr. Sykes? Why aren't other scientist calling in to question Mr. Sykes credibility as a scientist? Where are the reports of Mr. Sykes past and any and all his business dealings? What no juicy rumors about his personal life, how can this be?
I find it predictable and hypocritical that the same people and organizations that have harshly criticized and savagely attacked Dr. Ketchum are silent about the lack of progress from Mr. Sykes.
Now Sykes is claiming that publication is a slow process. The following quote is attributed to Mr. Sykes:
"Publication is a slow process, especially in prominent journals, so I
wouldn't hold your breath. Journals normally embargo articles until the

What!?!? When Dr. Ketchum said basically the same thing the response was harsh personal attacks on her and her credibility, but Sykes makes the same assertion and SILENCE is all you hear from the "Bigfoot World" and the critics. (Insert crickets chirping here it is so quiet).
The double standard playing out before our eyes is dumbfounding! The hypocrisy robs any of Dr. Ketchum's critics of ANY credibility. (They never had any credibility with me to begin with)
I think the old saying "The pot calling the kettle black" applies to this situation and to be honest I have little faith that Mr. Sykes will ever publish a Bigfoot DNA Paper, I will believe it when I see it.
