Did Sasquatch originate from a Genetic Experiment?
Perhaps alien species such as the Annunaki created Sasquatch to help mine gold, and harvest resources to save their planet, only to be left here in isolation. Genetic modification caused by human activity has been occurring since around 12,000 BC, and continues in labs even today.
From Plants to Animals genetic manipulation continues to push the envelope on what is possible from a creation myth perspective. From real life "Jurassic Park" DNA type attempts to bring back dinosaurs, to modifying the genome to create super soldiers, research continues in the dark rooms of the globe.
But maybe we have had help all along? Perhaps Aliens have taught scientists in government labs the ability to genetically manipulate our species, or our scientists have discovered ancient techniques described in Egyptian Hieroglyphics - or maybe there is a simpler explanation.
Interbreeding Primates and Humans?
There have been no scientifically verified specimens of a human–chimp hybrid, but there have been substantiated reports of unsuccessful attempts at human/chimpanzee hybridization in the Soviet Union in the 1920s, and various unsubstantiated reports on similar attempts during the second half of the 20th century.
Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov was the first person to attempt to create a human–chimp hybrid by artificial insemination. Ivanov outlined his idea as early as 1910 in a presentation to the World Congress of Zoologists in Graz. In the 1920s, Ivanov carried out a series of experiments, working with human sperm and female chimpanzees, but he failed to achieve a pregnancy. In 1929 he organized a set of experiments involving nonhuman ape sperm and human volunteers, but was delayed by the death of his last orangutan. The next year he fell under political criticism from the Soviet government and was sentenced to exile in the Kazakh SSR; he worked there at the Kazakh Veterinary-Zootechnical Institute and died of a stroke two years later.
In the 1970s, a performing chimp named Oliver was popularized as a possible "mutant" or even a human–chimpanzee hybrid. An examination of Oliver's chromosomes at the University of Chicago in 1996 revealed that Oliver had forty-eight—not forty-seven—chromosomes, thus disproving an earlier claim that he did not have a normal chromosome count for a chimpanzee. Oliver's cranial morphology, ear shape, freckles, and baldness fall within the range of variability exhibited by the common chimpanzee. Scientists performed further studies with Oliver, the results of which were published in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology.
In the 1980s, there were reports on an experiment in human–chimpanzee crossbreeding conducted in the People's Republic of China in 1967, and on the planned resumption of such experiments. In 1981, Ji Yongxiang, head of a hospital in Shengyang, was reported as claiming to have been part of a 1967 experiment in Shengyang in which a chimpanzee female had been impregnated with human sperm.
According to this account, the experiment came to nothing because it was cut short by the Cultural Revolution, with the responsible scientists sent off to farm labour and the pregnant chimpanzee dying from neglect. According to Timothy McNulty of Chicago Tribune, the report was based on an article in the Wenhui Bao paper of Shanghai. Li Guong of the genetics research bureau at the Chinese Academy of Sciences was cited as confirming both the existence of the experiment prior to the Cultural Revolution and the plans to resume testing.
So what do you think would happen if we tried to cross breed a primate with a human? Do you think it's even possible, or do you think we would need help from an advanced civilization?
