Im beginning to wonder if Versatile was right, that they are covering up the existence of this thing, because if he is human, that would mean he is entitled to 'rights', and likewise, his home/territory, would become quasi private property, off limits to hunters, developers, campers, etc. Not sure what impact that would have on the US national parks either!
What if it is simply a wild looking large human that has spent many years in the wilderness? What if they actually have small feet? Do we still call them Big Foot?

A human that has become a 'hermit' of the woods, would still have the same DNA, as a human living in downtown NYC.

There is more than one type of mutation: https://www.thoughtco.com/dna-mutations-1224595. You would have to take a close look at the mutation to know whether it altered the genetic makeup of that particular individual. Not all mutations are harmful.

Right, but a persons DNA cannot change, even if they become a hermit and live in a cave for 40 yrs and never step foot on concrete again...their DNA is still going to be exactly the same as someone living in NYC their whole life.

Some of us do have mutations like this: https://www.origintx.com/?utm_source...0-%20Caregiver. "MoCD is an ultra-rare genetic disease that presents itself shortly after birth and progresses rapidly." That does not mean the kids are werewolves or a Big Foot. It means they were born with a mutation that can end their lives if not treated. There are other examples of this. You just don't say mutation and it had to be a creature or Big Foot!

The prognosis is poor, with a median survival of three years. Patients who survive beyond the first several months of life often have severe and irreversible injury to their central nervous system.

"New research shows that people with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor. A team at the University of Copenhagen have tracked down a genetic mutation which took place 6-10,000 years ago and is the cause of the eye colour of all blue-eyed humans alive on the planet today."

There are many different kinds of mutations in human DNA.


The site I learned about that, had posted all the science stuff, they may have listed the specific mutation, but Id have to go back and re read it, a lot of the genetic science was way above my comprehension though.
