    Bigfoot : Sightings abound but is there any real evidence of its a existence?
    I begin by saying that Bigfoot is not a real physical creature.
    I base this statement on several facts in evidence.
    1. no body
    2. no blood
    3. no stool
    4. most tracks are hoaxes
    5. most sightings and photographs are hoaxes.
    from guys in gully suits and gorilla costumes. fake feet found in garages. Bigfoot at best is misidentified animals.
    at worse a series of hoaxes for fame and money.
    post your thoughts.

    I think there is not just one answer.

    There are misidentified animals. There are hoaxes. There is wishful thinking.

    Beyond that I am just not sure. It is easy to be skeptical of Bigfoot sitting at home, but the world is a big place and there are still areas where humans rarely go. I am inclined to think there is no actual hominid Bigfoot out there but I am not 100% on it, the lack of evidence takes me close to 100% skepticism though.

    Number four is not a fact, perhaps many in the past decade or so but there are an abundance of footprints that have been cast that are not hoaxes...You have to keep in mind too that native Americans were seeing bigfoot long before western Europeans settled here and took over...

    Many people have claimed to have seen it, so it may be real. But with no hard evidence, it's not possible to be certain.

    One point I'd like to add is that if Bigfoot is ever proven to be real, all the Bigfoot researchers and other cryptozoologists will be pushed aside in favor of conventional scientists. Maybe they will get a little credit for discovering it, but they won't be the ones studying it or doing most of the interviews.

    Unfortunately, you have TV programs like 'Finding Bigfoot' that muddy the picture completely. You have these idiots out at night trying to attract Bigfoot to their location.

    In one particular episode the Bigfoot searchers mounted a caravan of vehicles and drove around with deer spotting lights trying to locate the creature. It was a comedy of errors with these people making noise and flashing beams of light in the woods. It's not too surprising that they didn't even see a deer. They never, ever saw Bigfoot in 9 seasons of the show.

    Never say never. I slide my own personal marker over to totally skeptical, and then nudge it back a few points because Nature has a way of reminding us we don't have it all figured out.

    And from all that garbage we now know that Bigfoot likes to tie tree limbs in knots, break them in meaningful ways and toss rocks, he likes apples, oranges and probably those tasty frozen mocha coffee things they sell at Dunkin Donuts.

    So true, that show really makes a mockery of those really trying to find bigfoot, the real investigators are nothing like those tv idiots...

    bigfoot is another projection of the cosmic trickster, its no coincidence that modern reports started right after ufos increased their activity

    Bigfoot has been reported by the native Americans for centuries...

    I'm starting to admire your persistence in your support of the frankly ridiculous.It takes me back to the Nibiru believers.

    There are too many reported cases and these reports have gone on for, well over a hundred years in modern incarnation, For maybe thousands of years worldwide under other names like Sasquatch and Yeti,

    No, I mean, I'm not all into the Bigfoot legend, So It's not a topic I'm all about, But Seriously though. Nothing is so widely reported for so long and it somehow doesn't exist.

    They seem smart, Smarter than Apes, I, Don't believe they are Apes. You never catch them, You never find their corpses. They bury or Burn their Dead. My thing is, It's 2018 and we think we know so much. What we do know in physics is so highly debatable that people are literally fighting about these topics anywhere intellectuals meet. We don't know How large Space is, In turn, We don't know how much of space we can see, to even give us a glimpse at how much of the universe there is to know. We know more about space than the floors of our oceans, And every day we discover up to 15 new species of life that we never knew existed, We don't know what we pride ourselves of knowing, There is much we don't know, There is much science just doesn't know, And by definition that makes those things paranormal.

    I don't know what Bigfoot is. But I know what Bigfoot isn't, Bigfoot isn't fake.

    I look at it this way; if Bigfoot is a flesh & blood creature and we can narrow down where it lives (say Washington State as an example) and cannot find him - then we certainly have no chance of finding intelligent life in space. As far as size goes, how does Washington compare with the universe? When I was a kid I believed, but as an adult - not really. I mean in the last 40+ years not one person has stumbled onto a corpse or skeleton? Not one trail/camera trap has caught the creature (and I mean legit - not just a blur on the screen)? I think one of these two things would have happened by now.

    I will admit that I would have thought the very first video shown (from afar) was a man in a suit - but it's not. I think this is whats responsible for 99% of BF sightings;

    And for those who haven't seen this, I think it is pretty impressive. But when I see things like this I think of Billy Meier and the crack squad of investigators that said things like "The computer confirms what Meier has photographed; it's a large object about 30 ft in diameter a great distance from the camera."

    There's also Alaska where I read lots of reports of bigfoot activities, even attacking hunters, that woul dbe another excellent State to sweep through to find this creature...

    Here is a good read in my opinion...

    Raincoast Sasquatch: The Bigfoot / Sasquatch Records of Southeast Alaska, Coastal British Columbia & Northwest Washington from Puget Sound to Yakutat
