Last Show Recap

Nessie & Bigfoot

A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joined George Knapp in the first half of the show to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligent consciousness.

In the second half of the program, veteran journalist Chris Taylor talked about how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.

Nessie & Bigfoot

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - June 17, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Lee Frank, Joyce Riley

Writer and producer Lee Frank discussed his expeditions in search of the Loch Ness monster (Nessie), as well as his investigations into the Bigfoot mystery. Sightings of Nessie date back to 565 AD when a Celtic monk reported seeing the creature. Though a lot of photos of Nessie over the years have turned out to be hoaxes, Frank visited Loch Ness in the 1970s and was impressed by witness testimony.

Terrified locals described seeing a creature with a horse-like head, red eyes, and horn-like appendages, he noted. In addition, there's been around 20 land-based sightings, he detailed. For instance, in 1933, a huge beast with a long bulbous body was seen crossing a road. The Loch Ness area has also been home to a lot of supernatural activity such as "corpse lights," said Frank, and cryptozoologists such as Ted Holiday came to believe that Nessie might have a paranormal connection.

Frank said he has a hair sample of Bigfoot, which has so far proved to be inconclusive. He suspects that Bigfoot is an unclassified species of animal, but some of the evidence doesn't add up, such as footprints that suggest the creature's weight is around 900 lbs-- heavier than it should be for its height. Witnesses often describe Bigfoot moving the same way-- it doesn't straighten out its leg when it walks, as would be expected of a creature of this size. He also talked about a possible Bigfoot-UFO connection, which famed abductee Betty Hill first suggested to him.

Soldiers & Drugs

First hour guest, Gulf War vet advocate Joyce Riley commented on a new VA study using the anti-smoking drug Chiantix. It's another example of experimenting with troops without their consent, she said. Chiantix, as well as a host of antidepressant drugs such as Prozac, are commonly prescribed to soldiers. These substances can alter behavior, and lead to suicidal or homicidal ideation, she warned.
