To the Skeptics

Skeptics, to me, are afraid to think outside of the box.  The problem with this is that it sometimes leads to half truths and partial understanding, which can cause people to ridicule or overreact.  Here I will attempt to answer some of the questions skeptics have asked about the subject of Bigfoot.

Q.         Where are the pictures?

A.         When you are dealing with a creature that is highly intelligent, photos are hard to come by.  Most people, as I stated in a previous article, do not have a camera with them during sightings. Sightings occur very briefly, and are usually in heavily wooded areas. Those who say that the encroachment of civilization would lead to more sightings, which there are, are forgetting that there are still plenty of areas for the bigfoot to hide.  Thirty percent of our continent is still unexplored.

Q.         Can’t footprints be faked, which would explain all the prints?

A.         Yes they can be faked, but a number of the casts that have been studied have been found to be real. Plus, why would people create fake prints in obscure places, where no one would be likely to find them? It does not make sense. It’s true there are fake footprints out there, but those that were faked were placed in heavily trafficked areas.

Q.         What evidence is there to support the existence of the bigfoot?

A.         There have been hairs found that do not match any known animal, and fecal matter has been found that contains unknown bacteria.  If the bacteria are unknown, then the animals that they came from must be unknown as well. There are sound recordings that cannot be explained after having been compared to all known animal sounds.  There are also several good pictures and videos that have been captured over the years.

Q.         Why have no bones or bodies been found?

A.         Well, as we do, they may bury their dead. If this were the case, then there would not be any bones or bodies lying around for someone to happen upon. If they do bury their dead without marking the location, then random digs would be unlikely to result in any evidence. Also, their bodies may decompose faster than those of most animals, which would mean physical evidence would not be visible for long. This is common with bears, their bones decompose more rapidly than those of most animals, leaving no trace in a short amount of time.

Q.         Are all the witnesses simple or crazy?

A.         Witnesses are all over the board as far as education, career, and age is concerned.  There is no common connection with witnesses. There have been doctors, lawyers, police, firemen, etc. who have claimed to have had sightings. The only things that are similar are the descriptions of the creatures and certain behaviors the creatures displayed.

Q.         Why has one not been killed or captured?

A.         Being that they are intelligent and muscular, I think it would be hard to kill one, or to have a cage, or any type of trap, that would be able to confine one. Also, if you were to shoot one, what if he/she were not alone? Then what would you do? I think you could be placed in quite a bit of danger. If you were to capture one, then what would you do? How would you transport it, where would you contain it, and whom would you inform?

There are, I know, more questions that are asked, but the fact is that there is a place for skeptics. They make us work harder and bring more to the surface. Without them, the drive for discovery would not be so strong. One day the skeptics will be faced with the reality of what is actually out there. Until then they just drive us forward with their ridicul

Where Are The Photographs?

Where are the Photographs …

   This year, the first photographic evidence of living giant squid was obtained, even though the animals have been known for over one hundred years.  The only reason that the giant squid was known to exist was because dead ones washed up on a beach in the late nineteenth century.  Dead specimens that washed up from time to time were the only documented evidence of the animals’ existence for a hundred years. There was little else know about them and, until this year, no documented picture or video footage of the living creatures. This is just one of many species that are known to exist, but of which we have been unable to obtain photographs. The animals just keep eluding the lens.

   So, you may ask, what does this have to do with bigfoot? Well, just as most fishermen  who claimed to see these elusive giant squid did not have cameras available, neither do the witnesses of bigfoot. Most sightings are by people who are simply out doing their day to day work. Who carries a camera around while they mow the lawn or care for livestock or pets? The sightings are quick and the witnesses are left in shock at what they have seen. Even if they do happen to have cameras with them, they do not think to take pictures.  The fact is that there are many known animals that were discovered by accident.  Like the giant squid (Kraken), they existed only in lore for many thousands of years. Bigfoot, to the scientific community, remains a legend, and will remain that way until someone obtains the best evidence possible.  We members of the UBRG have this as one of our goals:  Find a way to prove the existence of these creatures to the science community without killing one in the process.

The Question of Telepathy!

We all have had that feeling of being stared at, just to look around and see someone staring a hole right through you. Could this feeling be considered a weakened psychic ability? What if we were not so depended on our technology to get us through our day to day activity, would it increase? So that brings us to the main question, do bigfoot have psychic ability?
Well, first lets start with animals that do have a form of ESP. Sharks, for example, can detect the slight nerve impulses in a fish and can zero in on it. Some sharks like the Hammerhead can pick up these impulses from miles away. Honey bees still pose a mystery to science; one can find a field of flowers and lead the rest to it with a dance. This physical form of communication is still not understood and there could be an unknown sense that may be playing a part. The common house fly can feel slight differences in air pressure and feel minute vibrations. Toads have optic sensors on the back of their head so that they can detect light changes behind them to let them know of approaching predators. These are all forms in away of ESP and only a few examples.The Australian Aborigines say that they can communicate over long distances using ESP. There has been some proof to the truth of these claims. Including remote viewing tests that proved accurate. The US government uses remote viewers to help find people. If the government did not think that there was some truth to ESP, why do they use it?  The police use psychics to solve cases. Again if the police did not think there was some truth to ESP, why do they use it? So there is a great deal of evidence to say that there may be psychic ability in bigfoot. This may explain why they have eluded scientific discovery.

It would make sense that they can, since they are nocturnal creatures with very heightened night vision. This would explain why motion detection cameras are ineffective at capturing images of them on film. All motion detection cameras use infrared beams to detect movement in front of the camera. Most animals with night vision would be able to see the beam, but would not have the intellectual capabilities to understand its function. Since the bigfoot are able to sense the beam and understand how to avoid it, they may never be successfully photographed through these means.

           Also, it is possible that they are able to hear the high-pitched sounds emitted by electronic equipment. With this ability they would be alerted to the presence of any equipment that may be used to document them. In addition, they appear to have the intelligence to understand what these items are being used for, and will try to avoid them.

           So what is the best way to capture a bigfoot on film or on audio tape? By going out into the field without the intent to film or record. The more that you act as though you are there to observe the outdoors as a whole, and not just to observe them, the more luck you may have. Also, high-tech equipment may be less effective than low-tech gadgets, such as disposable cameras that do not make any electronic sounds. There is technology in the works that does not produce high-pitched sounds, which may aid in the ability to gain documentation of these amazing creatures on a more regular basis.

How is it that the bigfoot have eluded us for so long? Is it dumb luck, or are they an intelligent species that can outsmart even the best woodsmen? I believe that the latter is the answer. Most encounters are chance sightings that are very brief, but leave a lasting impression. The question, when these sightings occur, is were the bigfoot caught off guard, or were they allowing certain individual or individuals to see them.

If they are aware of how to avoid us, then it would seem reasonable that they are putting themselves in a position to be seen. Another explanation might be that we are encroaching on their territory, and they can’t help but to carry out their daily routine in areas where they may be seen.

What has to be examined is whether there are more sightings now then there were,

say, twenty or thirty years ago. That would be hard to prove because it would be impossible to examine the sightings that were not reported. It may be that people are more inclined to report their sighting now than they were in the past, which would prevent obtaining a good comparison of the volumes of sightings over the years.

So we can not be sure if sightings are due to the fact that the bigfoot want to be seen, or now are taking bigger risks. The fact remains that they are highly intelligent and have managed to remain one of the world’s greatest mysteries.
