Following the dancing Cryptozoologist “the” leader in the field he has been called, none other than Loren Coleman. Here in this blog I will layout post by post of his in relation to Dr. Melba Ketchum and her work with mapping the Bigfoot genome. After I provide the hyperlink to the post I will provide a synopsis stating where/how I feel he has either outright or passive aggressively attempted to or succeeded in discrediting her work and bringing more criticism upon her. This is a main point as I have read where he has attempted to rewrite history and state that I am simply misunderstanding or misreading and even worse taking posts form others and believing them to be made by him. All blog posts that will be discussed will be of course authored and posted by Loren Coleman himself on the site Cryptomundo.com where he is a blogger and associated on as a “leader” by the site itself.
Let us start at the beginning of my questioning of Loren Coleman’s posts and motives surrounding his blogs on Cryptomundo.com
It is here at this link above, where it all begins for me. My question now as it has always been is as follows: What business does any blog about the Dark Knight Aurora shootings have on a site like Cryptomundo.com considering the sites “about us” and the fact it has nothing to do with anything related to cryptozoology?
This question has failed to be answered by Loren Coleman after repeated attempts to solicit one from him using Facebook. Even as recently as 1-13-13 on a post in the closed group The Secret Sun by Loren Coleman where it eventually ended with him blocking me. He also blocked my wife, Nicole, for posing the very same question to him.
He has stated that he has answered the question but has failed to provide any link or answer to it to either of us here at The Mind Cemetery.
I will provide my email Chip@mindcemetery.net and allow him every opportunity to explain himself.
Now on to his Dealings and blogs addressing Dr. Ketchum.
Lets start at the beginning of the year for the sake of a timeline.
No issue whatsoever with this mention, to the point and straight up with no opinion provided to sway readers.
*Bigfoot Evidence post*
Another simple to the point post stating she will be speaking at a conference and posting her bio, no reference for the bio but it is fine.
Then the fun begins, this is a posting of a picture that has a last supper with Melba in the center, surrounded by Bigfoot hunting buffoons. Asking what do you think of it and what it says. Well Loren, it seems you want to call into question Melba in the center and how all the others are being postured as buffoons. As if who made her Jesus so to speak.
Here we have a picture of Melba with the words: Says she has definitive DNA proof of Bigfoot, is actually 14 year old Troll. With a comment of ”Some of the internet memes are funny” Funny huh? You think its OK to circulate meme’s that criticize a person in the field whilst attempting to say your doing nothing to hurt her image or standing in others eyes?
Another picture in this post he uses in an attempt to re-enforce an opinion held by some in the community. One of which that is central to some researchers in that they believe it is a Gigantopithecus. Further attempting to help divide the community against her.
Here is where he starts to use “” around scientific findings. As I have stated before the “” use is meant to condescend. I can see it and so can everyone else who reads it. Later on he starts to rattle off the other qualification he would like to see her work pass no doubt in an attempt to make it more difficult for her and to help guide his flock of sheeple toward his view.
Outing Igor Burtsev as the leak of the DNA research and blaming Melba for making things worse. The bias shown for an American journal to publish the work and not anyone else shows his need to again funnel the work to certain venues and help him discredit Igor and Melba’s progress and results. he even went as far as to bait Igor into answering a question publicly to illustrate how he cannot be trusted as a researcher.
Here he goes into showing how Ray Wallace was a trickster and how Igor and Melba seem to be going down that path as well with the leaks, promises, promotions, and pitches. This act needs no explaining its clear as day what posturing he is taking.
Loren announces his appearance on Coast to Coast AM an what he will be talking about, none other than Melba Ketchum and her research, later on in the day he posts #10.
More posturing but now he has adopted a saying and stance. “No data, no discovery” and how he is withholding his judgement as well. REALLY? Seems to me, in at least 6 previous posts that included Melba you have started to outline your stance CLEARLY.
The pho surprise at how so many have come out against Melba’s work. WHAT?!?! You truly do think were all saps and cannot read don’t you Loren. You have fostered your sheeple to do exactly that, criticize and hate Melba.
Here he announces her appearance on Coast To Coast Am with George Knapp. Asking why is she talking before a paper is publish. That’s a lot of nerve Loren, asking why she is talking. I would also like to ask my second question: Why do you expect her to stay silent in the face of the onslaught of critics up to and including yourself?
Here is Loren’s first post of 2013. Here he defends himself from me, even though I am not mentioned you can see where he is responding to my inquiries and critiques. He stated the following:
I did an analysis of the postings involving Dr. Ketchum for the entire year of 2012, and came up with these totals:
Craig Woolheater posted 15;
Guy Edwards posted 10; and
I, Loren Coleman posted 8.
WRONG! You posted 11 articles involving Dr Ketchum
I would suggest those that feel I am “bashing” Dr. Ketchum may not be reading statements by or from me.
WRONG! Every post you see above except #1 been written and posted by you Loren.
Considering I have refrained saying anything about the Ketchum story for most of the year, I am flabbergasted by this. I’ve been patiently waiting for the results for years? Why would I jump the gun before the story heat up around Thanksgiving 2012?
WRONG! If posting 11 blogs involving Melba is patiently waiting, I’ll eat my mic.
Since the beginning of 2013, I’ve now read that blogs and other outlets have decided to ”discuss Loren Coleman and his roll [sic] in bashing Melba Ketchum’s research.”
CORRECT! :) You will not get a pass nor will I and others in the community allow you to rewrite history.
