Cryptozoological Absurdities


My new article for Mysterious Universe is titled “The Absurdities of Cryptozoology,” and it starts as follows…

“Now, before anyone starts complaining or ranting, the title of this article – ‘The Absurdities of Cryptozoology’ – is most definitely not an attack on cryptozoology. The subject is, without doubt, one that I am particularly fascinated by – and which I have been fascinated by since my first trip to Loch Ness, Scotland, at the age of six. So, quit yapping before you even start.

“As for those absurdities, they revolve around aspects of the phenomenon that are not addressed anywhere near enough, and which lead me to believe that so many of the so-called cryptids that populate our planet are actually things that should be investigated by people with a deep knowledge of the world of the paranormal, the supernatural, and the occult, and not just zoology or cryptozoology. I’ll begin with the beasts of the aforementioned Loch Ness.”
