As the human race, we can build rockets capable of flying at speeds of over 20,000 mph and land on the moon and come back safely.

We can make incredibly complex machines like Concorde and the 777.

Which comes to beg the question. Why can't we solve a mystery like the Loch Ness monster. We are talking about a so called pre-historic animal which is supposedly survived in the lake, and we can't find it nor solve the mystery. And it becomes really hard to ignore a myth like this when you have witnesses stepping up and claiming to have seen something here and there.

What do you think? Is this creature so intelligent or are we missing something?

Maybe perhaps because the damn thing doesn't exist in the first place?

I agree. With the radar, sonar, submersible, and other imaging technology we have, we cannot locate a several ton animal swimming inside a landlocked lake?


I don't buy the story of Nessie for a minute.


Just a piece of local folklore that has made International headlines. Nothing more.

Why can't we solve a mystery like the Loch Ness monster.

Quite surprisingly it is very simple to answer, no one is seriously looking for it. I mean that no one really believes that it is alive, so how is one supposed to find something they don't think is there?

We humans have grown accustomed to proof of something before it is found, since only bones of pre-historic animals were recovered, much of which date back thousands of years, we all make the decision that anyone who thinks otherwise is crazy.

People refuse to spend any money on issues that put their reputation at risk; anyone with an advanced degree, for example, would become a recluse if they go around claiming they've been abducted by aliens regardless of what they consider is proof.

Personally, I believe it is out there and until someone with the money/ and or resources comes along to perform a serious "animal hunt", it may never be found.

But you never know. A hundred years ago, people thought that some of the Chinese locals were nuts to see a black and white bear in which we now know as a Panda.



The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

Let's not fool ourselves!

Look at the non-aviation forums.

The Lock Ness Monster does exist!
He is just tricking us all!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

It's a load of rubbish!

If anyone was serious about finding it, they'd explore Lock Ness!

The reason they cannot find him is because I thought he would make a nice addition to aquarium which he did. It is nice having a little larger fish for visitors to see.

Shouldn't that damn thing be dead by now?

...The *real* mystery is how ANY living creature could possibly survive for that long. Afterall, that Loch Ness nonsense has been enduring for how long now?

My argument goes for the Bigfoot mystery aswell. Its probably only a guy walking around in a ape-like costume now and then in the pacific northwest.

GKirk is correct. The Scottish people know the truth, which is that of course it doesn't exist, but let's stop anyone looking too hard because there a millions of gullible tourists who can be relieved of their dollars, euros and pesos!

Well done the Scots, I say. Big grin

Well not quite, considering the earliest recorded sighting goes back to the year 572 AD and there weren't many tourists about then!! At least, not the kind you'd see in Little Chefs or tartan tat shops

Not seen since 572 AD?

Wrong! I saw Nessie in October 1996. I stepped out of a pub to get some fresh air (which was badly needed) and looked out over Loch Ness, and there she was!

In fact at times there was two Nessies. I could clearly see them in the moonshine, jumping happily up and down and waving their tail syncronously as in a dance.

Funny thing is that Nessie must have some astronomical connection, because when there were two Nessies, then there were also two moons mirrored on the lake.

Having assured myself that it really was Nessie I ran into the pub and told the gang what I had seen. Half of them laughed, and the rest came with me for another look. But then she had gone. I guess that she didn't like that my mates were peeing in her lake.

Back in the pub I ordered one more full bottle of whiskey to celebrate with the gang that I had seen Nessie. But the bar tender said that the boy had already been sent to my room to unlock the door for me, and he told me that people, who have actually seen Nessie, need more sleep than other people.
