several of my friends and family believe in big foot. i on the other hand do not. i dont know why i do not but i havent found anything yet to convince me to believe in this creature. some people around my community have claimed "bigfoot sightings" but i am skeptical.  i have listened to their stories with an open mind and considered the things they say.  some claims were "every other country has an ape like creature native to that country, why  couldnt big foot be ours?" and " big foot could be a shape shifter, which is why we havent found it" but these are not enough to convince me.  i am a firm believer that imagination can take you far in the face of fear, which is why i cant believe the "sightings" and "evidence" and things that "bigfoot hunters" say they have found. i will consider everyones opinion with an open mind. but i do not believe in big foot the creature, i think it is imagination taken by the media to keep people occupied.
-just my opinion

I think that the media blows things out of proportion to keep the public occupied, take bigfoot for instance. Recently a lot of bigfoot shows started coming on tv. why do you think that is?

To make money. Bigfoot is a popular/sensational subject - on a par with the various ghost hunting shows. The media is run by private and public companies devoted to earning money for their shareholders. The media is not run by the government as a tool of propaganda or to keep the masses occupied.

However, I agree that the media (mainstream and cryptozoological) does largely blow things out of proportion - again because that is what people want and it sells. The story is more important than the facts...

The media has one objective and one objective only - to make money.  They don't give a rip whether we are "occupied" unless us being occupied is profitable for them.  There isn't a conspiracy to use bigfoot to distract us.  They just broadcast whatever sells ad dollars and looks good to the focus groups they pitch to.

Im not saying that media uses bigfoot to distract us. But I have another theory about media and public distractions it would be for another forum, i might post that one later today.. Big foot is just not something i believe in...Yet. There have been several sighting around my community as i said earlier so maybe if i go looking i will find what i need to see.

Posted 20 January 2013 - 07:54 PM

My opinion is that I totally agree that there is no known good evidence of bigfoot, but... I also think there is some kind of phenomena that is behind people seeing, hearing and interacting with what they believe is bigfoot. So in a sense bigfoot is real, to those that believe in him. Because though BF might not be physical, those people experienced something....

Hi Sarah,

You say you don't believe and that's your right just as it's the right of your family and friends to believe because they have had encounters.

It's a bit hypocritical though when you admit that maybe you should go out looking, before making those decisions especially about those that are close to you, I would hope someone close to me, numerous as you say people close to you wouldn't lie to your face. Also it takes dedication, a quick walk through the forest would be a million to one shot of having an encounter.

Also were the people in fear when they had their encounter or are you just assuming like most that it must be terrifying to see a BF?

I agree with you on the media presence, the shows that come out seem to be a load of crap, I think I've watched 5 minutes here or there, they are just totally ridiculous.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. Gandhi.
HEY I WON!

On here I talk about taking a Bigfoot if I ever encountered one, but what would I actually do if I encountered one? I've seen many a tough guy say what he'd do when the bullets start to fly and then saw all they did was cower in the bottom of a trench crying like a baby. Then they had to live with that the rest of their tour and carry the memory for the rest of their lives. Truth is no one knows how they will react when they encounter something like that. I'm open to the possibility that there could be Bigfoots, but that is based on what two friends of mine told me they encountered. I knew both of these guys personally, both were ex military and one was a cop and neither one could pull the trigger when they saw the critter. Both for the same reason, "It looked like a human.".

I've never seen one or found any evidence of one, I did encounter a nasty smell once like nothing I've ever encountered before, but that is hardly proof of anything other than a nasty smell. So I consider myself "open" on the subject. However, the evidence that is available now is marginal at best and what there is is very possibly hoaxed or at least could easily be hoaxed.

A "chuapsquach"? Really?

This is one of those I honestly am at a lost for how to respond.
