Bigfoot? Yes or No?

I seen so many bigfoot shows airing on tv- I don't get it. Got to think if they were real someone at sometime would've come across some remains, no? Are all the people who claim to have seen one wackjobs, mistaken identity or what?

Bigfoot? no...someone, somewhere would have had hardcore evidence by now that could not be denied. I DO however believe in a "higher power" or "spiritual power" out there. I cant tell you that I know exactly what it is yet though, just that there is one and I don't know what it is yet!

"I think Bigfoot is blurry, that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. " -Mitch Hedberberg

On a more serious note - Big foot is as real as a mermaid.

I saw a bigfoot making it with a mermaid on the beach on BI...then again it could have been a couple of locals coming from one of the wild halloween parties they have there.

Spend a night in the Hobamock Swamp. No one ever comes out the same way they went in. Many paranormal, Bigfootesque sightings.

i can tell ya one thing

when you experience a "life changing Event" there is no denying it
what ever that may be....
falling over board, plane crash you survive,
something traumatic...
it becomes your world.... you become obsessive about it
it has changed you and your perception of the world
from then on you see with different eyes....
you have crossed the line from skeptic to believer
with many penalties to pay along the Path

i know the feeling

and when someone says to me that the event they witnessed has changed
their life in immeasurable and "obvious ways" i tend to believe them

True to a certain extent, but the majority of these nutjob bigfoot hunters are believers with nothing to back it up with. They're just completely wacked!

With the amount of high tech heat seeking cameras available these sightings
could be quickly proved or disproved from the air. Unless of course they are cold blooded. LOL

I heard an interview a couple of weeks ago where a woman said she was kidnapped by one and met it's family, and spent a week with them. She said they were very gentle, so now my fears are alleviated.

one of my favorite sightings "stories"

was from a pilot who popped over this ridge with his small plane
and came real close to the next ridge rather quickly
and there in the top of a tree doing some scouting (i guess)
was a bigfoot who was unable to Hide.....

if these "sightings" were in a third world country.. or some un explored continent... they might be "believeable"... but this absolute crap about them living "amongst" us so to speak....we've put men on the moon and found giant squid in the deepest parts of the sea... hard believeing a land based mamal could evade so many prying eyes...

A good run is better than a bad stand!

yup! it's BS! and the show is ridiculous, funny how all the sightings are during the day, but they need to go out a night to find it! When is the world gonna wake up to the fact that it's a bunch of BS!

I am much more inclined to believe the paranormal investigator shows (even though those are BS too) as at least they are trying to explain the unexplainable, this seems pretty clear: either the thing exists or it doesn't and it obviously doesn't!

one thing is for certain
there ARE plenty of places for which a BIGFOOT creature
could hide.....
places where modern man has barely set foot... as it's that remote

this is what is strange

they seem to have an edge....

a higher awareness or ability that man doesn't possess

now the NUT-job lady referred to them being telepathic...
that would fit because... they are rarely surprised for one

and two the howls, grunts, screams, and knocks are a verbal
communication to get our attention...

several times witnesses have described a HOWL or ROAR
that is so friggan loud that it vibrates within the human body
much like standing very close to a large speaker @ a rock concert.

that I find particularly fascinating

Of course the "finding bigfoot" researchers don't do anything to instill a sense of confidense or even intelligence when you have a guy named Bobo, or one team member who is ALWAYS saying she doesn't believe anything that is presented to her, even when she can't explain it!

Plus....I laugh whenever I see them trudging through the forest at night with those stupid shoulder/light harnesses. What makes you think that ANYTHING within a 1 mile radius isn't going to see that and head in the opposite direction?

My guess is that the howls they hear are bigfoot laughing his arse off at these "stupid hairless apes"!!!

I am a legend in my own mind!
