Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, Yowie.

The study of religious or heroic legends and tales. One constant rule of mythology is that whatever happens amongst the gods or other mythical beings was in one sense or another a reflection of events on earth. Recorded myths and legends, perhaps preserved in literature or folklore, have an immediate interest to archaeology in trying to unravel the nature and meaning of ancient events and traditions.

Anyone besides me think that the bigfoot etc. phenomena may actually be remnants of ancient proto-humans? It's been discussed that they may be Gigantopithecous, but I think they are closer to human than that. If you don't believe such a creature exists, then don't bother to comment here. I have read that some seem more human than others, so there may indeed be several species. They are as smart as humans and very "forest-savvy". Of course they'd have to be to have avoided conclusive detection for this long. For the record, I think we should leave them alone, whatever they are. That's why I quit hunting them...that and the fact that the woods are full of rednecks and hillbillies hooting at one another then coming home and claiming to have "heard a real bigfoot!" It just ain't safe out there! For humans or bigfoots.

Well,
As the old saying goes "where there is smoke, there is fire."

In this case it may be only embers.
But embers are fire leftovers.

The materialists will see they only believe in what they can see or measure.
The believers say you need faith.

Personally, I put Bigfoot and Evolution in the same pigeon hole.
Neither has been proven, but both have some faithful believers.

Pretty sure Evolution has been proven, every second that life exists on this planet. Faith is bullshit!

Sssh...kb thinks the bible is proof.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Well, actually, you have it backwards.
I think that science is more and more proving the Bible.

The whole “Big Bang” idea seems pretty well summed up in Genesis 1:1

But the more you study either, you eventually get to the point where you are told “you just have to believe.”

My take on the subject of beliefs:

Believe or disbelieve whatever you wish, as you choose.

Just don't try to shove your convictions down everyone else's throat.

That is fair.
I will not tell if you do not ask.

I am willing to share if you are interested.
But I do not want to waste my time talking to the wall.

They are after all my beliefs.
And many of them are not main stream.

None of this has anything to do with Bigfoot. If you don't have anything to say about the subject, then don't say anything! I'd rather read nothing than have to wade through all this bullshit! Read the damn subject line!

" Where there is smoke there is, or may have been, fire."
Is it possible?
Sure.
But very few things are impossible.
