One of the reasons why I don't like fundamentalist religious organisation is for things like this.

The truth about the photograph used in the Biology book refered to can be seen in Loch Ness Monster, Surgeon's Photograph

One has to wonder if apathy or ingnorance was in place to allow such ignorance to be introduced to students as science

Actually I am quite sure that there is "something" in Loch Ness but I don't know what it is. It is up to 750 Feet deep in places and is a freshwater lake. Some people think that it is a Plesiosaurus that somehow are still breeding in the Loch, which does seem a bit unlikely. The Loch is landlocked and the Plesiosaurus were saltwater creatures.

Visual encounters I can dismiss altogether, but there have been some scientific sonar results for a large mass moving at depth. I'll keep an open mind.

How many times have surveys of the lake found zip. radar is pretty accurate and not one blip that couldnt be explained. I think its a bunch of hooey.

Most people do Skil. Sonar is different from radar. There is definitely something there, but we can't seem to find out what is is.

Correct me if I'm wrong Chris, but I seem to recall the navy doing an extensive sonar scan of the lake.

Yes they did, and found something as well, but I can't find a link to it. There is something unexplained in that loch ....

Oh Gawd, it's turning into one of those threads again ....

Statement

I'm not fussed one way or another whether there is or there isn't anything in Loch Ness. I really don't give an tinkers cuss one way or the other. I happen to think there is, but I couldn't care less if there isn't.

OK?

though teaching the presense of an animal yet to be actually verifiably photographed or found is a bit of hookum. You may as we teach about the yeti and sasquatch as far as that goes

They may or not exist, my thoughts ate the same as with Loch Ness. But I agree that kids being taught that they factually do exist without evidence is wrong.

I bet Robert Ballard didn't think that what "something large" showed up on the sonar just before he found the Titanic. So far I can't see any reference to a "Loch Ness Monster" when sonar was mentioned.

Don't forget that naval personnel are not dumbo's & modern sonar is pretty damned efficient.

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that ...

no you're not mistaken - the naval sonar survey did take place & they detected something - no one said anything about "Nessie" - Neither did Chris or I.
