The Loch Ness monster is one of the most well known legends in the world. First sightings were mentioned from around 1500 years ago, but since the first sighting to be formally recorded in 1933, the world has been crazy about the monster in the Scottish loch. Countless sightings have been claimed but are all of them legitimate?
Loch Ness is huge. It measure 800 feet deep and 23 miles long – definitely big enough for such a creature to live in.
Of course there are many people who claim to have seen the monster.
People have produced photographs; purporting large dark shapes to be the monster.
Over the years, various groups of people have scanned Loch Ness and found things that may have been a monster.
Results of the various scans could easily have been large boulders transported from the rives connected to Loch Ness or a swarm of fish being chased by a predator.
People make claims for fame and attention.
The BBC used well known scientific experts and systems to to their own scan and found nothing.
The BBC also did a live experiment and created a hypothesis that ‘People see what they want to see’. They raised a pole from the water as people went by and then asked people to draw what they saw. Many drew a monster shaped head!
The problem with puzzles like this is how to tell the whether anyone has really seen a monster at all!
My conclusion is that the Loch Ness monster is not real. This is because the evidence against it existing comes from more credible and reliable sources.
