Each nation has its own monster or even several monsters.
There is only one tiny difference: some of them know that it is only a myth and horror story for kids, but others do believe in those creatures and try to prove their existence.
Where Did It Come From?
One of these monsters is believed to live in Scotland, in Drumnadrochit Lochs, and is named the Loch Ness Monster, or simply Nessie. The peak of interest to this creature was in the middle of the 20th century. It was then when several witnesses said they saw some creature in the lake. Then the famous black-and-white photograph of some unknown creature appeared.
Though, later this photograph was examined and proved to be a fake, since it was not a monstrous creature, but a small submarine decorated to resemble Nessie. Finally, in the 21th century scientists proved that there can be no such a creature in Drumnadrochit Lochs.
Now it is high time to consider whether the Loch Ness Monster is a living creature or a myth, like Hydra or Godzilla.
No Evidence at All
The first and the most significant proof of Nessie’s non-existence is the absolute absence of reliable evidence. No reliable photograph or video was ever made.
Moreover, only few people insisted they saw the monster, and it turned out that what they really saw was a tree trunk, or a swimming deer, or some lake plants. No mass witnessing ever occurred, though, a lot of people every year visit the lake to see the Loch Ness Monster. But Nessie doesn’t feel like bathing any more.
No Single Version about Its Shape
In spite of the fact that the majority of people agree on the fact that the creature is very big (about 20 feet or more), with long neck and small head, with two or more humps, four flipper, and a tail, there are other different versions.
For instance, some believe that this creature has no tail or more than one, some think that it has snake head, others insist on the reptile head. Of course, people have not yet decided about the color of the monster.
No Known Specie to Fit
From the very start of the Loch Ness Monster chase scientists try to define the specie this creature could pertain to. Many of them decided that it could be a kind of Plesiosaur, though, Plesiosaurs (which, by the way, thrived quite long (several millions years) ago) was approximately 10 to 15 feet. But people say Nessie is really large.
There existed several other marine dinosaurs which were really large (about 20 feet or more), though, they were the wrong shape. Thus, there is no such specie, at least known one, on our planet.
Does Not Nessie Need Air and Sunshine?
Another point against the fact that the Loch Ness Monster is Plesiosaur, or even exists, is that Plesiosaur was amphibian, which presupposes that it keeps its eggs on the shore.
Actually, Plesiosaur is often juxtaposed with turtles. These species like to stay on the shore sunbathing. Thus, Nessie is likely to have such a pleasant custom. Though, no one ever saw it on the shore.
Is Nessie a Survived Dinosaur?
Some people argue that this creature can be a dinosaur which did not thrive with the others. But people used to say about the monster, not the population of monsters. And scientists proved that single individual could not live to our days. Besides, the lake is not so rich in flora and fauna to feed at least one such a large creature, not to mention the whole population.
The Whole Lake Is Not Enough…
Considering the Loch Ness Monster’s dimensions, another disputable point arises. The lake itself is not so big. Being a very large creature presupposes large needs in nutrition and actually living, for Nessie is not a hummingbird it can’t be fed up with single flower nectar.
As mentioned above, the lake does not provide the abundance of flora and fauna. Thus, a creature of such dimensions couldn’t simply survive there. Some people argue that Nessie can sometimes go to the sea where it could find a lot of food and place, though, there is no way to the sea.
No Nessie in Drumnadrochit Lochs?
The major expedition held in 2003 proved that there is no any such creature in the lake. The scientists studied the whole lake and its bottom using 600 sonar beams. They did not detect any living creature of such dimensions there.
Really? No Nessie at All?
Actually, this expedition not only proved that there is no Nessie, but it also proved that there is no evidence that it existed at all. No remains, or other evidence that the Loch Ness Monster ever existed.
Fake Evidence Only Prove Non-Existence
This point is placed in the end, though, it is quite significant. Several photographs and videos were presented to prove Nessie’s existence, but none was reliable, some of them were openly slapdash fakes. Of course, it proves that people only want to become famous, but these fakes only contribute to the clear understanding of the impossibility of such phenomenon.
Much Ado about Nothing
The last point which only enhances the sensation of cheating is the whole buzzing about something not proved. If a fact appears and then comes buzzing, it can be called an event, but when gossip comes with buzzing it can be called a fraud.
Of course, there are still people who believe that Nessie exist, arguing that people know too little, and Nessie can hide in the tunnels or caves of the lake. Though, a lot of facts prove that the Loch Ness Monster is a myth. Or maybe you know something the rest of us don’t?
Sometimes, you just do not have time to accomplish everything your tutors give you: a lot of unimportant junk that is often a waste of precious time.
