Bigfoot

Lets take these things one at a time shall we. First of all I must say that I usually believe in anything. Chubakabra, Abdomnimdabohl Snowmen, and things of the sort. But none the less I will try and state my reasons so you can disagree with them.

1) If you think it is odd that this thing has never been found I also consider it odd that no remains of any kind of "missing link" have been found.

2) If you think it is odd because this animal is supposed to be so big that it has not been found I point to the story of the 15 ft tall bear recently killed in Alaska. If you do a quick search you might be able to find this story. Bears were not believed to ever grow as large as this one. But this bear lived many years undetected in the wild. Until it ate 2 hikers and almost ate a park ranger.

3) My third reason for believeing in bigfoot is simple, I don't think that the vast majority of individuals who devote their a significant portion of their time searching are quacks. I have seen interviews with a lot of credible people who claim to have seen/heard or have seen evidence of bigfoot that they can not explain. I have seen a lot more credible people come forward for bigfoot than say "Creationism" which we can agree is not reality. Anyway, my time to type this is short so feel free to let the bigfoot/Brad bashing commence.

The only bigfoot I believe in is the one featured in the most recent MythBusters commercial.

Here is some info on it

I have questions. If Bigfoot is real, how many Bigfoots are there? Is the Arkansas Bigfoot the same species as the Oklahoma Bigfoot? They've been spotting bigfoot for many many years, so is Bigfoot immortal, or does he reproduce? If the latter, there must be a Mrs. Bigfoot. Where is she? Has anyone ever seen a baby bigfoot? Sorry Brad, I just don't buy it. But I look forward to hearing more...

I agree with Tara. How could these creatures be so stealthy as to never been seen fully? If this species is a giant man, then why haven't more giant tracks been found? Why hasn't someone been able to track the beast? It'd be as easy as tracking a dinosaur in peanut butter. If there are a lot of these creatures, than why haven't they been seen more? If there are only a few than why haven't they become extinct by now? The whole idea is ridiculous.

Brad, I think you just got servedj.

In Brad's defense, it would be arrogant to assume that we know all the creatures that inhabit the earth. New species are discovered on a daily basis. Consider the coelacanth for instance. This bizarre relic from the pre-dinsoaur days was thought to be long extinct, but a live specimen was discovered in 1938.

Having said that, I am extremely skeptical about a race of Bigfeet tromping around in the forests of Canada or whatever. Unless, like Elvis, he has a knack for being spotted by unreliable witnesses.

i think that we are arrogant as humans to think that something so incredible has not been discovered. i dont think that the population of a species has any real bearing on whether or not it exists, neither does life span. this creature has never been found only says that either it doesnt exist, or it does not want to be found. given the nature of humanity today, i wouldnt want to be found either...

The tracking question is the best evidence against presented so far. Now they may be fake but whenever I see a show on bigfoot the person talking is stting in a room with about a million plaster tracks behind him.

As far as Mrs. Bigfoot why would she not look the same as Mr. Bigfoot? Also, if I said someone has seen a baby bigfoot would that then make you a believer?

I am not sure if they are all the same species but probably variations. My best guess is one day we will discover a large animal in several locations that will something we have never seen and will account for the sightings.

It is also interesting to note that the original bigfoot video has never been proven a fake by ANYONE! It has been analyzed by top people in the field.

I think I am going to skip the loch ness monster and move right on to the next blog, maybe tomorrow.

i think you only believe in bigfoot because they haven't done an episode of bullshit on it yet.

"It has been analyzed by top people in the field."

As in, the field of biogfoot research or the field of video analysis?

Also, once you have a single track, it's pretty easy to make more of them USING your plaster mold.

where did your ONE track come from?

Video analysts

let me clear the air here folks.

bigfoot is not real.

the jabberwocky is real, however.

let me add to what ben touched on:

"It has been analyzed by top people in the field."

regardless of if the "top people" were video analysis or bigfoot enthusiasts, what would they anayize? All the video people could say is that the video wasn't doctored right? which in no way gives any support for the exsistance of bigfoot. The video experts or anyone for that matter, can't look at the video and measure bigfoot's gait, or height and say "yup, that's bigfoot alright" because there are no captured bigfoots to compare him to. it is just some loser who put on a monkey suit and walked silly.

by the way, i have some magic beans i can sell to you.

for #3, what are you basing your judgement of if these guys are "credible"? I for one, would immediatly deem them not credible once they started talking about bigfoot or presented a plaster mold.

anyway, you can see in that bigfoot video that they guy has a wristwatch on. everyone knows that...

First of all, video experts can discredit a lot of shit. They could see a zipper on the suit for instance.

I would rather you state your ideas on why he doesn't exist.

Blogger fooiemcgoo said...

as a nonbeliever, I don't need to present ideas on why bigfoot doesn't exist. it is the person making the claim (you) to convince the skeptics.

everyone has good arguments, but the best that the footage that i have seen (which i assume is the same as yourse) suggests is that there is no way to draw any conclusions for or against bigfoot. just because no one can find a zipper or further discredit that footage as a guy in a suit, doesn't mean that it isn't still a guy in a suit and we can't prove it.

for instance, I will claim there is a planet between pluto and neptune. but I can't prove it, but no one has proved that there ISN'T a planet between pluto and neptune. but i doubt anyone would agree that there is a planet based on that logic and because i said so. same thing with bigfoot except for some shady tracks and video footage that is very weak evidense and not reproducable.

And what I am saying is that you are saying "shady tracks" and sketchy video evidence without doing any research.

5:27 PM  
Blogger fooiemcgoo said...

I have seen the same evidence that you have, i am assuming. the case for bigfoot has been around for long enough for that.

i refuse to devote anymore time on this subject.

you are dead to me now.

i don't claim to know whether bigfoot exists, but i can argue your points

1) "missing link" is a misnomer. read this, especially the "misconceptions" section

2) granted, it took us awhile to find the world's ONLY fifteen foot bear. but we noticed all the OTHER bears a long time ago.

3) the fact that subscribers to some other debunked theory seem less credible than subscribers to the bigfoot theory does not make the bigfoot theory true.

on the other hand, maybe bigfoot lives here

I agree that we haven't discovered every creature on the earth but every creature in north america? Possibly. Every mammal in north america? Almost Definitely. Every primate in north america. Without a doubt.

I think the population of a species does have a bearing on it's existance. A larger population is more likely to resist famine or disease, whereas the one big foot in the famous video has surely died by now.
