Message from Russian Hominologists to Malaysian Colleagues
Dear Vincent Chow,
May I warmly congratulate you and your Malaysian colleagues on a marvelous, most important and long expected achievement — getting clear photographs of what we call homins (our technical,”professional” jargon term for relict hominids). Back in 1963, my teacher of hominology, the late Professor Boris Porshnev, proposed and urged the use of photography as a means of solution of the relict hominid problem.
I followed his advice and argued for this method in the book To Kill or To Film? The Problem of Proof, 2000, against those who insist on killing a specimen. Currently we are in contact with several persons in different areas who interact with homins, and these people do not reveal their names and addresses to the outsiders and the world for fear of endangering their “furry friends”.
I’ve been telling them of two Priorities: Number One — to obtain good photographic evidence, Number Two — describe in writing their observations and experiences. Now I tell them: follow the example of the Malaysian researchers — they have successfully pursued Priority 1 and Priority 2. And this despite the tremendous difficulty of photographing such elusive beings as homins, the difficulty which Professor Porshnev could never imagine.
We are most grateful to Peter Loh, who interviewed you, and to Loren Coleman who [also interviewed you and] broke the news to us. After getting two last reports from Malaysia, I explained to my colleagues here my confidence in the veracity of your information as follows. I said that Vincent Chow is “passionate about wildlife and conservation” and “has a deep respect for nature”. He says his colleagues “had spent 11 years protecting the creatures”. He “believes this to be surviving members of Homo erectus“. And this despite their Bigfoot size. This shows his deep insights in the matter of hominology. He says “they are genetically very close to us”, judging by DNA analysis of their hair, which coincides with the results we get from analyses of sasquatch hair. He is prepared to “challenge conventional ideas and hypotheses about Homo erectus” and “finally open the eyes of the world…”. And he is not “in a hurry to please the skeptics and cynics”. He also says that folklore about these creatures “is a goldmine of information that cannot be ignored.”
These are the ideas, attitudes, and language that we fully share and support at our International Center of Hominology. That is why I fully trust your information, described by Peter Loh as “so incredible that it would take lots of faith to believe.” Naturally, I would like to ask you many questions, but, realizing how busy you are for the time being, I have patience enough to wait and see my questions likely answered in your book.
With warmest regards,
International Center of Hominology
