So, there we have it: Loch Monster mystery apparently solve. News services around globe have been running stories about scientists who carried out DNA testing of water in renowned Scottish lake and found clear evidence of-eels. That is something of letdown when you consider that, according to story in Washington Post, reports about Monster go back as far as 565AD. With all that going on in world, surely scientists have better things to do with their grant money than pursue mythical creature. Well, maybe not. Some believe there is much of value to be gained in pursuit of mythological beasts-that, for example, as reported in C osmos in 2017, search for mythical monsters can help conservation in real world. Were speaking here of cryptozoology, which National Geographic calls study of hidden life or animals, adding that it implies creatures thats been recorded through something that we have reason to suspect exists. Livescience website say cryptozoology is study of Cryptids, animals that are rumoured to exist, such as Bigfoot and Nessie, which continue to tempt hopeful and adventurous with possibility of their existence. But as episode of Discovery Channels ' Animal Planet television series say, with advancement of science and technology, not all Cryptids have remain in realm of hearsay. Although programs ' scientific credentials are diluted by its inclusion in networks ' Monster Week theme series, it make point that komodo dragon, okapi, manatee, platypus and even gorilla were at one time considered to be mythical beasts. In 2013, National review book about cryptozoology, Bominable Science! Origins Of Yeti, Nessie, and Other Famous Cryptids, by palaeontologist Donald Prothero and journalist Daniel Loxton, in which they analyse history of mythic beasts and clues to their existence. Prothero says cryptid is any animal that has never been described by Science, something that stretches limits of what is scientifically plausible, to which Loxton add, it implies creatures thats been recorded through folklore, something that we have reason to suspect exists. In 2015 article, Washington Post reported on long and controversial debate over reality of Australias Platypus. In late eighteenth century, British scientists had their first look at Platypus specimen, sent from Australia, and many believe it to be hoax. It naturally excites idea of some deceptive preparation by artificial means, English zoologist George Shaw wrote in 1799. Post Article Notes That Shaw Was First To Publish Scientific Description Of What Turned Out To Be Very Real Creature. In 1799, he Platypus its scientific name, Platypus anatinus.

Society's Magazine, Journal Of Scientific Exploration, Was Established To Provide Scientific Forum For Ufology, Parapsychology And Cryptozoology, Having Published Research Articles, Essays, Book Reviews And Letters On Those And Many Other Topics That Are Largely Ignored In Mainstream Journals. Journal Is Currently Edited By Parapsychologist And Philosopher Stephen E. Braude. Spirituality and Psychiatry Special Interest Group of Royal College of Psychiatrists say that journal has reports about anomalies in particularly in parapsychological and extraterrestrial fields. Some academics have noted that Journal publish on anomalous issues, topics often on fringe of science. Kendrick Frazier, editor of Skeptical Inquirer and Committee for Skeptical Inquiry fellow, has that: clinical community psychologist and professor of social psychology at University of Connecticut Seth Kalichman regards Journal as publisher of pseudoscience, with Journal serving as major outlet for UFOology, paranormal activity, extrasensory powers, alien abductions etc. Philosopher of science Noretta Koertge describes journal as attempt to institutionalize pseudoscience. Skeptic Robert Sheaffer writes that SSE Journal has published articles implying that topics, like paranormal activities, dowsing and reincarnation, are true and have been verified scientifically. Articles, often written in impressive jargon by scientists with impressive academic credentials, try to convince other scientists that further research into those topics is warrant; but, Sheaffer argues, those articles fail to convince mainstream Scientific community.

Thylacine

Hidden Animals NEW SPECIES: OVER 100 YEARS of discovery. INTERVIEW WITH KARL SHUKER. LAST Thylacine, Or Tasmanian Tiger, Is Believed To Have Died In 1936. However, many contend that SPECIES could still survive, including unconfirmed sightings in Tasmania, and NEW Guinea. Thylacine was world's largest carnivorous marsupial. Painting by Constatine Richter, 1845. Anyone who doubts cryptozoology, which in Greek means study of hidden Animals, should remember many lessons of past 110 YEARS: mountain gorilla, colossal squid, and saola, to name few. Every year, almost 20 000 NEW SPECIES are described by world scientists, and new book by Dr. KARL SHUKER, Encycloapedia of NEW and Rediscovered Animals, highlights some of most incredible and notable NEW animals uncovered during past century. In INTERVIEW WITH Mongabay. Com, SHUKER say top three zoological discoveries since 1900 would have to be coelacanth, and saola, also know as Vu Quang ox. His book highlights these three discoveries along with hundreds of others, including SPECIES discovered recently as LAST year. SHUKER, zoologist by training, has made name for himself in cryptozoology by pursuing hidden animals WITH scientific rigor. While cryptozoologists sometimes struggle for serious acceptance of their evidence, SHUKER says that may just be nature of pursuing Animals rumor to exist. Cryptozoologists who investigate cases of Cryptids in scientific manner are pursuing same paths as mainstream scientists. Ironically, however, as soon as one of cryptids that they investigate is formally discover, it is, by definition, no longer cryptid, and immediately becomes subject for study by zoologists instead. So, in sense, cryptozoology can never win, because as soon as one of its subjects is confirmed to be real, it is no longer cryptozoological but zoological instead. To boost discovery of NEW SPECIES, SHUKER is starting NEW scientific journal devoted to evidence of hidden animals. I hope that cryptozoological researchers will submit papers to journal that are totally worthy of publication mainstream zoological journals but which may not be accepted by them simply because their subject is cryptozoological, which seems great tragedy and injustice, he note. There are many places in world where discoveries, even of big and charismatic animals, are still quite possible. SHUKER says researchers should focus on remote, little-explored regions, such as rainforests of South America, Asia, Africa, Australia, and NEW Guinea; vast, inhospitable Arctic zones; and obviously, even more vast oceans and large freshwater lakes in tropical regions that have attracted little scientific attention so far. But even as scientists are documenting NEW SPECIES leave-and-right, SHUKER warns in his book that extinction may be just as likely fate for many of world's hidden SPECIES as discovery.
