Beyond Bigfoot Belief

The two-party duopoly even effects cryptozoology — I have a feeling numbers would be higher among libertarians:

    That means more Americans believe in Bigfoot then are affiliated with Evangelical Churches.

    I think we have a new republican candidate.  Sasquatch caucus anyone?

  2. I don’t think Bigfoot is real, but Gorillas themselves were considered to be mythical and the product of an over active (African) imagination until Europeans finally saw one.

    So yes, I am weaseling in a “maybe is real, I don’t know!”

    Watch the belief of Sasquatch damn near disappear when a scientist substantiates the existence of Bigfoot using Darwinian evolution.

  4. 100% of Sasquatch think humans are real and insane. ” We are good at hiding,” said Mr.Foot, ” We want nothing to do with humans. What kind of animal trashes their only home for mere trinkets? We wish to only be left alone. Thanks for destroying the earth, assholes. In case you have not noticed, your not the only living things around. Get over yourselves.”

  5. all those sightings cant be fake. somethings going on. if it were one or 2 hippies in the woods talking about bf, ok, ya, they smoked some good stuff and had a trip. but 1000’s off people cant all be fibbin.

  6. There are tales of Yetis, Almas and bigfeet all over Asia ans North Amecia. I think maybe some speciments of homo erectus survived in Asia long enough to meet asian homo sapiens. Homo erectus was as tall as 1.90 cm (6.5. feet) and it probarbly had fur. Nowadays it only lives in the legends that has survived from this period. The indians brougt this legend with them when they migrated to the american continent. 

  7. that’s nothin’
    the majority of American think they live in a free country
    a freedom more elusive than Bigfoot
    you have the right to follow instructions
    you are instructed to be free
    you can even believe in
    Bigfoot if you want to

  8. Good luck surviving in 5% of his original habitat, segmented and polluted.

    Big foot sightings have declined per capita with population growth, the opposite of what you’d expect if they were fabrications, but what would parallel the loss in habitat.

    Like I said, down to 5% of the original habitat, if there were ever bigfeets they’d be having a hell of a time surviving now, good ammo for conservation arguments, save the habitat so that bigfoot if he happens to exist might survive!

    There are several species of old growth forest mushrrom that have only been documented less than a half dozen times. They don’t have any evasive tactics, they’ve been reported with less than 1% of the frequency of bigfoot yet no one would argue about whether they exist or not, but if they hadn’t been found in that last 5%…. how many did we wipe from the first 95?

      Interesting example about the mushroom. Then again, Spotting a bigfoot is a lot easier than spotting a ‘particular’ species of mushroom.

    primatologist Jane Goodall counts herself among the believers.

    Perhaps the desire to believe in bigfoot stems from the desire to have more brown people to bomb, even if the brown is from brown fur instead of brown skin. All it would take is the FBI getting a bigfoot drunk and equipping him with a dud explosive in a Scooby Doo lunch box and we would could have a nice war with Washington State.

  11. If there was a sasquatch, we would have found one by now. Bones, photo, scat with DNA … Nothing yet and we have wahoos all over the woods looking for them.

  12. Once you factor in the Sasquatch’s capability to travel between dimensions, you’ll realize how difficult it is to find “evidence” of them.
    Perhaps they are hyper-evolved versions of man?

    At least three different species of hominids have been shown to have lived concurrently with modern humans.
