    Well judging by the poll seems we are all in agreement, bigfoot is not an alien...ae2;

    I don't think it's a coincidence that sightings and reports go back at least a couple of centuries, including being tied to and described in the folklore and history of numerous Native American tribes, even being described as being part of (and some dying in) the Battle of Wounded Knee...

    I do think maybe it is overhyped in more modern times, where people are seeking attention or poking fun at people that truly believe in it... however, I strongly believe there are cases out there that are legitimate, or ones that are too afraid to come forward because of hoaxes...

    It depends on what you term as 'alien'.

    Hello and Welcome to AE...q37

    Possibly, in this case using the word alien I'm referring to any physical thing that did not originate on this planet...

    There's been a big myth-understanding - Bigfoot main purpose is a fun marketing character ;)

    But Smallfoot - humans - are real.

    Then the tally rests on whether or not a 'real creature' could be an off-planet biological being that only appears to be real...but is, in fact, alien.

    Oh my bad.

    Yeti = the Polar Bear of Bigfoots.

    No matter what shoe size, if he's not wearing Nike's he's on our side.

    Something in physical reality that we believe is part of that physical reality because we can use one or more senses to explore it.

    It seems to me that most modern Bigfoot sightings fall under the misidentified category . I do believe they once existed though.

    The Chickasaw called them “lohfa” which meant flayer or skinner due to the nature of the wounds left on its victims . Sometimes described as a hairy man and others as a big stinky monster!

    Well, in one sense Bigfoot is as real as UFOs - real modern mythology to quote Edward Ruppelt. Modern to everyone but Native Americans that is.

    Not saying there isn't something entirely different that may be the source of either or both of these things, just that the the belief systems that have evolved around them are completely normal and terrestrial.
