For decades many people from the casual vacationer to the very educated scientist have been trying to get a glimps, and I might add proof, of one of the biggest mysteries of our time.
There have been photographs taken, and proved to be hoaxes. There are a few pieces of evidence that cannot be proven either way. But, what if there was evidence that proved that the Loch Ness monster really exists? What would people do? The human race is incredibly curious. Would we respect the creature and it’s existance? Or, would we exploit it, more than now, and potentially capture, and study it? I would hate to think that the museum exhibit that I have to pay to see is a creature that could still be living and thriving without us.
We built our lives around things we believe in. Where’s the fun in proving the Loch Ness is real? What keeps us coming back for more? If proof is ever found, would we be as excited about it? I think the thrill is in the chase. Everyone has their own idea as to what it looks like. Each story getting more and more spectacular. Some say myths and legends started out as some kind of truth.
Whether it’s real or not, I just like the idea that it could be true. I would kind of hate to prove such a wonderful mystery. Don’t get me wrong though. I would like to know if the Loch Ness monster does exist, but I think I’d rather be left in the dark for now.
