In some of the correspondence elsewhere about these recent doings, I've seen reference to Ketchum comparing herself in her recent labours and travails and being scorned / rejected / misunderstood, to Galileo and to Jesus Christ. Protesting too much, just a bit? Her carrying-on this way would tend to reduce her credibility -- suggesting that she isn't very stable, and / or she's consciously involved in fraud and fakery.

Ahh, yes, this old chestnut. Leaving aside the poor understanding of history of science (and/or theology) it does tend to suggest a persecution complex.

Laughing She didn't expect lemur! That's funny, because it seems perfectly sane to the rest of us that our recent ancestors bred with giant Madagascan prosimians, the improbable progeny of which buggered off to make a new life in the forests of the New World! Laughing In her defense, I'm sitting in a garden centre coffee shop in Lincolnshire without enough signal to play the video, so I can't claim to have fully heard her out.

Thanks for the link, lkb3rd! It gave me a chuckle!Very Happy

EDIT So I've heard the interview in the accompanying video, and I wonder where this is going. I'm sure in due course it will be revealed that the lost continent of Lemuria produced intelligent lemurs. Upon its destruction by volcanic eruption, earthquake, and the wrath of God, the Lemurian survivors sought refuge around the world, giving rise to universal legends of cynocephali. One of the continents on which they settled was Atlantis, unfortunately also doomed. However, from there our sapient prosimian cousins moved to the Americas, where they bred with locals. Suddenly, the secret history of the world all makes sense.

To be fair, I don't think anyone was expecting lemur. There's little chance the progeny of a human-lemur crossbreeding would be fertile. Or even viable.

Hey, I like a little lemur lovin' as much as the next guy. Wink More, probably, if my 20 strong collection of lemur soft toys is anything to judge by. But I draw a line at wanting to produce sasquatch cubs with them.

Were lemurs members of The Spanish Inquisition?

She surely deserves points for a very original brand of insane, impossible theory, though.

On the contrary, everyone expected the Spanish Inquisition as they gave you 14 days notice before visiting, according to QI!

Could you reschedule if it wasn't convenient?

I think so, but on the rescheduled date they don't tell you morning or afternoon so you have wait in all bloody day.

Whenever they did turn up, it would always be just after you put the kettle on for a cup of tea. The jammy beggars.
