Transcript of Nessie

The Legend of the Loch Ness Monster Loch Ness is a long cold fresh water loch in Scotland.

There have been records of strange beasts there for over 1500 years.

In the 1900’s numerous photos of unknown animals surfaced.

High tech expeditions were launched to find the monster using sonar and submarines.

Today opinion is divided between believers and skeptics.

Believers:

A long history of reports and sighting going back to 565 AD.

Actual photographs.

Some sonar and underwater photos.

And perhaps the desire for a mystery to be true.
“Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.” -Rumsfeld Skeptics:

Many unreliable/unconfirmed sightings.
[from an area with high whiskey use]

The pictures are all fuzzy.
[and some were faked]

No body. No remains. No proof.

Complex scientific arguments:
No enough food.
Too small a sustainable population.
