"Bigfoot Is Real, Nessie Is NOT"

Is it a rogue wave... or something else?

Editor-in-Chief note by Frank Cali: Bigfoot is about to be proven 100% real by Rick Dyer. No longer will Bigfoot be considered a myth once and for all. The Loch Ness Monster unfortunately will remain a myth. Over the years, I knew 2 people who actually took part in the investigations at Loch Ness. One was Dan Taylor, he was the gentleman who took the little yellow submarine that he built himself  to explore the Loch back in 1969. It was sponsored by World Book Encyclopedia. During one of his dives, the small sub was turned around by a strong force and got stuck in the muck on the Loch bed. Dan had to blow his ballast tanks of the sub to get it free. For the rest of his life, his goal was to return to the Loch with a sub that was powerful enough and fast enough to follow anything that may be in there. In the late 1990's, Dan sold his house, took out loans to build a bigger and faster sub to return to Loch Ness. The project would cost around 1 million dollars to complete and get to Loch Ness. I was going to install mini TV cameras in the sub when it was completed.

During the course of building his new sub, Dan kept suffering a series of strokes and heart attacks. He made it and pulled through. "I dodged another bullet" Dan would say to me. He wanted to get that sub built before he had a fatal heart attack or stroke. Sadly, Dan had a fatal heart attack in 2005  and his dream was never finished.

Another friend of mine is Dick Raynor. Dick worked with the Loch Ness investigation team in the 1960' as a volunteer. During one of his watches as camera operator, he took the famous film of "something" seen on the Loch surface when along came a boat into the camera's view. At the time, Dick assumed he took footage of "Nessie." Year's later with the improvement of technology, it was discovered that the footage was actually of a bird swimming in the Loch. Dick also had another important role to play in Loch Ness. In the 1970's, a man by the name of Robert Rines, head of The Academy of Applied Sciences in Boston deployed underwater camera's in the loch. One of these famous photos Rines took was "thought" to be a head shot of "Nessie" for many years. Back in the 1990's Dick Raynor who also is a scuba diver when in that exact location underwater where the photo was taken by Rines time lapse camera. It turns out the camera was hanging in water not as deep as originally believed and actually started to drag on the Loch bottom. Dick was to discover what it really was the camera had taken that day. It was a rotted tree stump that appeared to look like that "gargoyle type "head" in the photo. Dick brought the stump to the surface and took a photo to compare with the Rines "head" shot and it matched 100%. The tree stump Dick pulled out of the Loch rest in a garage in that area to this day. Rines never talked to Dick again.

Getting back to Dan Taylor, years later it was discovered that the bottom of the Loch bed actually forms unusual waves and gas bubbles that cause turbulence  in the Loch. What really turned Dan's sub around was one of those things, not any Loch Ness Monster. All the "Nessie"researchers now know there no Loch Ness Monster. It's all water ripples, underwater eruptions on the Loch bed, boat wave effects and so on. There is a possibly that "some" of those sighting's could possibility  be a Sturgeon that occasionally comes into the Loch.)

 (But still the reports come, like this new one in the news this week below)

New story about Nessie in the news this week

The way amateur photographer David Elder tells it, you'd think he snapped a photo of Nessie, , the fabled Loch Ness monster:
“Out of the corner of my right eye I caught site of a black area of water about 15 feet long, which developed into a kind of bow wave," Elder, 50, told the Daily Mirror. "I'm convinced this was caused by a solid black object under the water. The water was very still at the time and there were no ripples coming off the wave and no other activity on the water."

Elder's alleged encounter took place earlier this month near Fort Augustus, at the south-west end of the 23-mile-long lake in northern Scotland. In addition to still photos, Elder was able to get video of the wave HERE ,

According to the Metro, Elder was taking a photo of a swan on the Loch (Lake)  when he first saw the disturbance beneath the water. 

In May, an Irish film maker captured footage of an identified creature breaking surface of Lough Fough in Ireland. Although the video fueled speculation that Ireland might have its own elusive sea creature, critics pointed to "inconsistencies" that suggested the footage was staged.

Although many scientists doubt that the Loch Ness monster exists, other people firmly believe that Nessie is out there. The most famous purported photo of the in 1934 by Robert Kenneth Wilson, a London gynecologist.

Wilson sold his photo to the Daily Mail, but refused to have his name associated with it, and it became known as the "Surgeon's Photograph." In 1975, the Sunday Telegraph published an article claiming the photo was faked.
