Incidents such this one should illustrate why "science" is terribly corrupt.
There are some denying the genetic evidence already. If they have expertise in that field, so be it. That evidence needs to be critically examined, no question about it. That's proper science. If they don't find hard facts in the genes, then the whole thing ends there.
Sadly, there is also emerging a whole lot of name calling, ad hominem arguments and wrongful appeals to authority - and that's the problem with all too much scientific inquiry these days.
I follow a site in which real scientists and engineers discuss their Cold Fusion findings and replications. They also analyse the replications of foreign corporations and universities. Meanwhile, skeptics deride the subject as a hoax or bad measurements. There are even a few opponents who refuse to read the results of others because 'they know it can't be true'.
Bigfoot is just small potatoes compared to everything else, I suspect is about to emerge.
Don't lose the lesson we all learned from the Watchtower being exposed - because Witnesses are not unique in being deceived. There is a whole world out there - of politics, 'science' and economics - that is dominated by lies, half truths and distractions.
Hopefully, things are changing in that regard.
