The quote above was penned by Frank Cali.
I had no intention of listening to any more of Rick Dyer's shows because he never talks about Bigfoot. All he has time for is talking about haters with Frank Cali, and quite honestly, it's become repetitive and boring.
Several people left comments on my latest post saying Frank Cali stated "Hank" has both male and female organs. It seems like "Hank" has two of everything.
Two slits on each side of the nose, double rows of teeth and extra organs. When Rick first started describing "Hank", he gave a description that was more in line with what other witnesses claim to have seen. Dyer said he looked like Andre the Giant. To me, that description is more human-like or primate in nature.
Somehow this whacked out story has morphed in to some sort of child eating monster that sounds more like a hairy Wraith than it does any kind of hominidae.
This is what Frank Cali and Chris Sands had to say last night:
I get the impression from Cali's latest blog post he is implying this Bigfoot can reproduce on it's own. I find it humorous that Frank compares "Hank" with a Komodo dragon, which is a reptile. It's not even an apple to apples comparison.
Frank is correct, there have been documented cases of Komodo dragons reproducing without a male, but those happened at zoos. It's not an everyday occurrence, but Cali left that part out.
You can read more about the Komodo dragon here. Scroll down to the reproduction section of the page. Underneath the reproduction section is the important section. You can read more about Parthenogenesis here.
"There are no known cases of naturally occurring mammalian parthenogenesis in the wild. Parthenogenetic progeny of mammals would have two X chromosomes, and would therefore be female."
Rick Dyer has clearly stated on many, many occasions "Hank" is male. This is something everyone can agree on.
This is a quote from the article on parthenogenesis:
"Parthenogenesis can occur without meiosis through mitotic oogenesis. This is called apomictic parthenogenesis. Mature egg cells are produced by mitotic divisions, and these cells directly develop into embryos. In flowering plants, cells of the gametophyte can undergo this process. The offspring produced by apomictic parthenogenesis are full clones of their mother. Examples include aphids.
Parthenogenesis involving meiosis is more complicated. In some cases, the offspring are haploid (e.g., male ants). In other cases, collectively called automictic parthenogenesis, the ploidy is restored to diploidy by various means. This is because haploid individuals are not viable in most species. In automictic parthenogenesis the offspring differ from one another and from their mother. They are called half clones of their mother."
In other words, asexual reproduction in animals only occur in females.
Is "Hank" a hermaphrodite? What are the odds that the first "verified" Bigfoot would have this rare phenomenon? As far as I am aware, humans with hermaphroditism can not reproduce.
For me, this is the last nail in the coffin of this long, boring drawn out hoax. In my opinion it's over and the fat lady has sung. Unless facts start rolling out or something verifiable comes out, I highly doubt I'll be covering this farce any more. I may update the blog just for my regular readers so they can continue their discussions. The comment section is almost unanimous that this latest blabbering by Frank Cali sealed the deal on the charade.
I'm going to take a break, then I'm going to focus my attention on the real researchers of the Bigfoot world. People like Cliff Barackman, Bart Cutino, Derek Randles and Steve Kulls deserve more blog time than hoaxers and scammers.
There are so many people to inform others about and it will be much more enjoyable. There are awesome podcasts and blogtalk shows to tell everyone about as well.
This has been an interesting ride and I have met so many great individuals online and I'm proud to call them my friends. So many have stuck by me and I thank every one of them.
Thanks to everyone who visits this humble blog and take the time to read the posts here. This blog will remain open with occasional updates. I don't expect anything earth shattering to happen any time soon.
