Biscardi, again.... by Kathy Strain
According to Ray Crowe (writing on the Bigfoot Forums), Tom Biscardi and Java Bob gave a talk at the International Bigfoot Society meeting in January. Ray writes, “Tom and Java Bob giving a good portrayal of things they have done via video documentary, Bigfoot Lives! There has apparently been some controversy concerning the finding of the large skeleton from Paris, TX. Seems Tom's crew was in the area and as the skeleton was unusual they were called in. Just photos were taken of the work in progress. A piece of bone was recovered for testing. C14 indicated 2900YBP, mitochondrial DNA indicated the skeleton was closely related to Homo erectus. Remaining material was returned after copy/casting due to NAGPRA and other federal regulations.”
As a professional archaeologist/anthropologist in charge of Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) for my forest, and the co-author of the standard NAGPRA agreement used by the U.S. Forest Service and Native American Tribes, I assure you that if a bone sample came back with a DNA match as or close to Homo erectus, NAGPRA would not apply (as the remains would not be Native American). I suspect highly that Biscardi is up to his usual tricks…do something seriously unethical, make wild claims with no proof, and ignore any and all questions asked. But I have some questions for you Tom, since it’s clear you read this blog.
Why the mention of federal laws? Is the land with the remains federal land? Why radiocarbon test the bone? What difference does it make how old the bone is if it’s bigfoot? Why copy or cast the remaining material? It’s not the same as the originals and proves nothing (you can’t do DNA analysis on a copy). Got any proof that the bone is close to Homo erectus? Want to clear your name? Feel free to send any proof you have to either my email account at email@example.com or to my address at
(I hope the readers realize that I don't expect to see any mail. Tom and I both know what the truth is. The sad part is, only one of us cares about it.)
