Cryptologic Radio Archive: Applied logic, Skepticism, and Critical Thinking

Posted by: Shannon LeGro on December 16th, 2014

Join us this week as we convene a round table discussion concerning extremely valuable concepts including logic, critical thinking, skepticism, the scientific method and how they can and should be applied to claims, evidence, and research. Understanding these concepts and how to apply them correctly to any number of situations can be extremely beneficial to various aspects of research and even rewarding on a daily basis. There are many individuals that claim to be skeptical, logical, rational, scientific, etc but we’ll take an in-depth look at what these concepts and terms actually entail in order to determine if those claims are founded and sound, on either end of the proverbial spectrum.

Wrong-Footing A One-Legged Mystery Snake From China

Posted by: Karl Shuker on April 15th, 2014

Some zoological photographs are so bizarre that long after they first hit the news headlines, they still continue to circulate online, like restless ghosts doomed to wander forever down the highways and byways of the worldwide web, resisting all attempts to expose them as hoaxes or explain them as grotesque yet nonetheless natural phenomena. One […]

It Came From the UFO? The Creature-Lights Connection

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on March 10th, 2014

One question I hear a lot from radio callers, blog readers and conference attendees is whether I think that unknown, upright canine creatures are related to UFOs. It’s actually a concept that’s been around for some time and is also asked in regard to Bigfoot and other cryptids. My usual answer is that while I don’t have any reports from witnesses who’ve seen a dogman hopping directly off a UFO (although I know there are a few cases where people have claimed this about Bigfoot), it just so happens that places where mystery creatures abound are also often UFO hotspots.

Zuiyo Maru Carcass Comes to Life

Posted by: Scott Mardis on March 7th, 2014

London artist John Conway recently painted a hypothetical reconstruction of what the infamous Zuiyo Maru carcass (found off New Zealand in 1977) might have looked like in life, assuming the carcass as found was an accurate representation of the living animal.

The Cryptozoologicon is Coming!

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 19th, 2013

Cryptozoologicon [is] a beautifully illustrated work focusing on cryptids, the (sometimes mundane, sometimes bizarre, sometimes nonsense) creatures of the cryptozoological literature. We’re just about done and are looking to launch soon… in fact, we’ve created so much material that we’re now going to be producing TWO VOLUMES.Cryptozoologicon Vol I launches soon in 2013; Vol II will follow soon after.Tetrapod Zoology

Where are the Cryptoarcheologists and Cryptopaleontologists?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 18th, 2013

So if you’re looking for Bigfoot – or any cryptid, for that matter – put down the infrared camera and pick up a book on anatomy and get busy combing the museums for remains. Read old journals and catalogs of finds. Ask your local fossil club to let you tag along when they go to “Bigfoot country.” In short, if you’re serious, get serious about finding REAL physical evidence. If a great ape ever lived in North America, he had to leave some of himself behind.

Recreating the Sasquatch Ontario Vocalizations

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on September 12th, 2013

These vocalizations have been called into question previously here at Cryptomundo.

Has this YouTube user Mikey Paterson replicated the sounds showing they are a hoax?

Or are they legitimate Sasquatch vocalizations?

Matt Bille Reviews Abominable Science

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on September 8th, 2013


Loxton and Prothero have written a very good book, which I reviewed on Amazon as a 4.5 star effort (I’ll explain why I had to downgrade it just a bit) that goes on the “must reading” list for anyone interested in cryptozoology. I’ve been following this field for decades now without seeing anything that fills this niche – that of the scientific, skeptical (in the good sense of the word) consideration of the entire field and its most spectacular maybe-creatures.
