Did This Man Just Find The Loch Ness Monster?
George Edwards has dedicated most of his adult life to finding the Loch Ness monster. It should be immediately noted that he runs a tour boat on the famed Scottish lake and of course any sighting would be good for business.
Indeed the town of Inverness, and the surrounding area in the Scottish Highlands have embraced the idea that a prehistoric sea creature survives in this mountain lake and have grown an industry around it. (Remember to exit through the gift shop.) However, if giant meteors destroyed and burned up most of our planet and the dinosaurs with it, wouldn't it make sense that a creature living deep in a dark cold lake might've survived that ordeal. At least, some of the eggs. Oh well, I'm not scientist.
Commerce aside it remains a wild idea that some amphibious dinosaur would have lived and reproduced over millions of years to still be alive in the 21st century. The most famous photo (grainy black and white) goes back to 1933 and reputable sightings that often include still photos or film have happened each decade up to modern times. Click here for Nessie's Wikipedia page. There's an interesting list of claims.
As for George, he and his boat, "Nessie Hunter" have been out almost every day for the last 26 years. He first became interested at age 13 when his father took him fishing there and he has since become a believer. His photo was sent to people in the U.S. military who have no doubt the photo was of "something animate" in the water. Edwards believes there is more than one.

As for sonar and other tech. searches he has an interesting take. "It's a massive body of water, deep and dark, and we simply don't have the technology to do that type of search." He added that those searches are the equivalent of trying to do an ultrasound on a pregnant woman while she's running down a hallway.

I don't wear a tinfoil hat (very often), chase UFO's or buy into massive earthly conspiracy theories, but this one: Loch Ness Monster, I would like to believe in. I mean scientists find new species all the time, right? And those species existed for centuries before our discovery. Why couldn't Nessie be one of them? LEAVE COMMENTS.
