Not “Nessiesarily” A Plesiosaur

Posted by: Nick Redfern on October 4th, 2016

I figured that for my first article in a while I would focus on something that provokes endless arguments and even rage. I’m talking about belief systems. In this case, one belief system in particular. Namely, the idea that the strange creatures of Loch Ness, Scotland are surviving examples of long-extinct plesiosaurs; marine reptiles that became extinct millions of years ago. Give me a break: Loch Ness is not teeming with plesiosaurs. Not even one. The plesiosaur theory is filled with holes that are simply too big to ever be successfully plugged. They were, after all, reptiles – meaning they surfaced to take in oxygen.

If the Nessies are plesiosaurs, then let’s say that at any given time there are around twenty of them in the loch, ranging from (a) young and small to (b) large and old. That would be a reasonable figure to ensure the continuation of a healthy herd. Let’s also say they, like crocodiles, can stay submerged, and without taking in oxygen, for a considerable amount of time. This means that in any one-day, each plesiosaur would have to surface around – let us say – twelve times. Twenty plesiosaurs, surfacing twelve times a day (at a minimum, I should stress), would equate to 240 surfacing events every single twenty-four-hour-long period. Multiply that by a week and the figure is elevated to 1,680. Then, multiply that by fifty-two weeks in a year and the figure becomes a massive 87,360 surfacing events annually.

  1. Spookysr responds:

    Does not have to be plesiosaurs. It’s at least two paired animals with large bodies, long necks, and a tail. They probably have access to the North Sea through underwater fissure caves to the bay near Inverness. Also the fish supply is HUGE. Two fishery paddocks are now at Dores and they do an international business. The two pairs have recently been filmed nosing around the paddocks.

    They do rise for air a lot! However, they are mainly nocturnal and can’t be seen at night due to their dark coloration. They also only need to stick the nostril up just like frogs and turtles do so as not to be seen by predators (i.e. humans). The Loch is immensely deep and that is where they stalk and hunt Arctic Charr. They hang around Urquhart Bay at night next to the two rivers outlets that Salmon use. They use echolocation as the peat stain water is too hard too see anything underwater at night.

    The Loch is actually open to the sea at both ends. The Caledonian Canal is left open at night. It is about 12~20 feet of water from Loch to Ocean. The River Ness is too shallow for a big creature. And it passes through a large Scottish city, Inverness. There may be many caves along the sides too on the northern end.

    There is some speculation that they may be some prehistoric huge hybrid long neck leatherback turtle that can echolocate like a small long-neck turtle species in Australia does. It’s not a huge catfish and not otters, walrus, or seals. Plesiosaurs are a broad subject. There are more than one kind. And since when did the inventor of Carbon Dating in 1949 say his invention could be used for anything greater than 5,000 years? Multi-million year datings are preposterous. Yet Mainstream Academia just keeps perpetuating this same old modern myth.

    Dr. Mary Schweitzer’s T-Rex skin found in Montana USA was dated recently to only a few thousand years old. So how do they think it’s 65 million years old? Same applies to plesiosaurs. Maybe somebody screwed up somewhere and is afraid to admit it now?

    And what the hell is those huge long-necked creatures in Cameroon and Lake Tele/Likoula Swamp D.R. Congo? They are not sauropods. They appear to be plesiosaurs too but noticeably eat fruit. That doesn’t mean they don’t eat fish too. They seem to love the water but not hippos or elephants (nor humans).

    Something is going on here and academia likes it the old way and they are pissing on our legs and telling us it’s raining! Do you like being lied too and manipulated by them?
