Science on monsters?
Have you ever heard about this pseudoscience? Maybe not, but who hasn’t heard of Loch Ness Monster, chupacabras and Yeti. Well, cryptozoology is pseudoscience about beings that hide from plain sight, or for us mere mortals, about mystical or non-existing beings.
What does cryptozoologist do?
Cryptozoologists study mystical beings, also called cryptides. Cryptides include vast variety of creatures from different folklores and even long extinct animals, like mermaids, dinosaurs, and megalodons!!!
For many, cryptozoologists are on wild-goose chase, still holding on to that sense of wonder and unbelievable discoveries in a world that is well studied and ordinary.
However, many biologists agree with cryptozoologist in one thing, that this world is still full of unknown that could be discovered. Difference is that, biologists believe that unexplored world lies on the level of insects and invertebrates, and that chances are slim to none to discover some new giant creature living on a mainland.
This most certainly doesn’t restrain cryptozoologist from exploring and attempting to record some of these creatures. Yet to this day, no single, accepted and successful method for discovery of these hidden beings has been invented. However, this is not an obstacle for cryptozoologists to advocate to be recognized as parascientists, similar as parapsychologist.
