This is in response to a question posed by Versatile. The question was "How much blood would it have taken to create what we see in the hole, on the Patterson film."
Take a look at the photo below. This is at the Patterson film site. This hole was dug in August 2008. It is approximately 3 to 4 feet deep. At that point, water rushes into the hole, leeching through the sand, from the creek. As you can see, there is nothing red about the water in the hole that I dug at the site. Now...back to the question. How much blood. The answer is...surprisingly little. When mixed with water, and then photographed in brilliant sunlight, it may not take as much as many people think. A little blood goes a long way, when it comes to photography. Whatever they had in the hole, had enough blood with it, that when combined with the incoming water, and the brilliant sunlight, produced the images on the Patterson film.
