Here's one update from Bigfootology president Rhetmann Mullis on the Sykes study. We've tried to get information from Mullis about the Bigfoot DNA study, but his lips are sealed. And for the stuff he's able to talk about, here's what he wrote on his Facebook wall:
One final word from me before I head off to bed because I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow: The reason why we took on this project (Bigfootology) nearly three years ago was to finally give the Bigfoot phenomenon a legitimate scientific approach and analysis and that has been our endeavor and we were fortunate to have Dr. Bryan Sykes, Dr. Anna Nekaris, as well as other "real" scientists join this team to treat this phenomenon seriously. We continue to do so and the DNA project is just one of many projects that we are working on. Because certain people talked about the DNA project prematurely we have had to walk carefully and we are inundated with questions and queries that have made this more public than it should be before it should have been. We have other projects going on behind the scenes and because of what has happened with this current DNA project, it has only created more distractions which slow our processes, so we do not talk about them openly. So I can talk more and more about things when things progress. More can be shared as each documentary is aired, more can be shared when the paper is published, and even more can be shared when Bryan's book comes out in the spring of next year. Until then, we walk carefully, say what we can, when we can, and the only absolute anyone can expect from this team is that we give a straight-forward, honest answers, if we cannot give an answer due to required processes that we have to adhere to, then we won't say anything, which is why we have been quiet for so long. I know that makes some people unhappy and that is okay because we are not here to entertain, we are here to seek the truth of the answer which is the Bigfoot phenomenon. Many of you have been very helpful and supportive and we appreciate you.
Just remember, if you do not hear it directly from myself or Bryan, then take what you are reading with a grain of salt because there are people out there that have nefarious purposes, including feeding their ego instead of respecting the truth or the process that science mandates.
