    The complete irony is that the “abominable” science is that of the authors and their ilk. They, Shermer and the lot are not scientists; they are businessmen. They make their money publishing nihilistic pseudo-science with smarmy tones that for some reason amuses B minus industrial engineering types. In this sense, they and this book are no better than the Biscardis and Dyers of this world. Neither side helps in the advancement of truth.

    Mandors: right.

    And this is a molecule off the tip of the iceberg:

    “The fact that Sasquatch/Bigfoot appear to be similar in appearance down through the decades is an intriguing criticism from scientists who, on the other hand, dismiss eyewitness accounts of other cryptids for a lack of consistency.”

    That the simple explanation that both Roe and Patterson saw a female of the same kind of animal doesn’t seem to occur to these guys is all one needs to evaluate everything else they say.

    I should add that Munns’s review of the book on Amazon is worth reading in its entirety.
