Here's the problem - these things are seen everywhere, especially all over North America.  To have stable breeding populations in all of these locations, there would need to be thousands of them.  They simply couldn't hide.

A bigger problem is the culture of storytelling and fakery (you know, the ones that call it "research") that has built up around the Bigfoot legend. If Bigfoot is real then why are so many people mistaken or faking it? Do people really believe that Finding Bigfoot is about finding an undiscovered species?

I effin Love Bigfoot! Of all the sightings and reports, never has any Bigfoot attacked a Human! There is something to this allrighty!

1892 Bauman Bigfoot - "Evidently unheard, it reached the man, and broke his neck by wrenching his head back with its fore paws, while it buried its teeth in his throat."

1924 I FOUGHT THE APEMEN OF MOUNT ST. HELENS

Mid-late 1970s Bigfoot Attack and Government Coverup - "a Bigfoot creature had gone through the day before and had torn up the campground; had overturned a "large" trash container that no man can even begin to move and had killed several people."

2009 Yowie Attacks Researcher - "It didn't even stop to check me out - started right into attack mode from the second it saw me."

2011 Bigfoot Attack Prompts Man to Build Flamethrower - "As it held him down, he realized that his assailant was none other than Bigfoot himself."

When Bigfoot Attacks

So, there are areas in Australia where you can walk about and practically trip over these things. Yet no evidence to date? ;)

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

I'm actually quite surprised to read so many skeptical comments on a board about the unexplained.  I figured that the majority of members would be more open minded to the possibilties of the unknown.  Just because there is a lack of physical evidence of something, truly doesn't mean it doesn't exist.  I don't know how many of the members here believe in God or not, but if you do, then you are believing in an entity that offers no physical proof of existing whatsoever.

However, some of you have given great comments and feedback and I thank you for them.   The topic of this post and its intial story isn't remarkable by any means, certainly not a ground shaking story, but it is current and somewhat interesting.   The subject as a whole IS very interesting though and if you dig deep enough, weed out the lies, fakes and hoaxes, you can still find cases that defy explanation.  :alien:

But there IS evidence of this "attack" - bruises which do not match the description of the "attack" and which aged in record time, plus a Yowie footprint cast that matches his own foot...

Is pointing out the long and ongoing history of Bigfoot storytelling and fakery being skeptical or realistic? I'm so open-minded about Bigfoot that I search for it myself - want to go bushwalking after dark in dangerous Yowie territory? They can rip your head off, you know...

However, having a mind open to the possibilities shouldn't mean turning a blind eye to what is actually going on with the Bigfoot phenomenon...

Not at all, of course not. :)

I agree and you don't have to convince me so I'm not sure what you're getting at by quoting me. ;)

I noted that you said Modern, since there have been several bigfoot sized stone tools found in various parts of the US that are crude and very old, but not pre-homo sapiens.

Do you have a source for this?

How would bone fragments with gnaw marks on them be IDed as ape gnawed?

I don't know, I'm not an anthropologist. I imagine that they would make those determinations the same way that they have determined that prehistoric homo species ate meat, based on the gnawed bones that they have found when excavating certain sites. Oh, and then there's that theory that at least some neanderthals were cannibalistic, based on the neanderthal bones that seem to be gnawed by other neanderthals....

So, I imagine that a species of giant ape that was eating meat would have to leave something behind. Yet nothing has ever been found. Ever. We have found the remains of things eaten by species that have disappeared tens of thousands of years ago, but nothing from a current giant ape species?


Quote

I've seen many gnawed bones in the woods and most that were even a couple years old were impossible to tell what gnawed them.



Probably because you don't have the training and experience that trained anthropologists and other such "ologists" have, I would imagine.

We know that whales have culture, but they don't make art, or tools, or anything lasting.

We're using a loose definition of culture here. But whales do pass songs back and forth from one generation to another, so I'll give that to you. But the problem with your statement is that it is this whale "culture" that has, in part, allowed man to hunt them so successfully and to document their existence. Not to mention all the other things whales do, like eat things and die and leave corpses that other things eat. Which bigfoot doesn't do, because whales are real and there is no evidence that bigfoot is real.

Whales also don't have  thumbs, and that is why they don't make things. Does bigfoot not have thumbs? I suppose you could claim he doesn't, as he is imaginary and can have whatever characteristics we want.

Open minded means considering all the evidence and possibilities.... but that includes the likely possibility that bigfoot is not real.

At some point, denying facts to continue to defend a belief has to be considered closed minded too, I think.

I know and agree and I've considered lots of the theories on why such a creature COULDN'T exist.  If you research the topic of bigfoot long and thoroughly enough, listen to the very many credible eye witness testimonials, some of the photographic and video evidence, the tracks found (often in the middle of nowhere) etc., these things seems to constitute more proof than not.

Common sense and rational weighing of evidence sometimes goes a LOT further than scientific evidence or lack of.   I have known some really smart people in the various science fields, and yet, they wouldn't be able to figure out how to operate a microwave. :cry:

Not if you are open minded.

But.... there is no evidence, and common sense tells you that bigfoot isn't real though....

I'm sorry, this just is how it is.

There is plenty of evidence, maybe not the evidence YOU want or need.  ;)  There are videos, pictures, tracks, sounds, all physical things that a creature is present.   Just because we don't have a body in a bag yet, doesn't mean it's not real.  At one time scientists didn't believe there was anything smaller than the atom. The instruments needed to see subatomic particles hadn't been invented when this idea was believed. ;)

No, I'm very sorry, there is not evidence. Evidence has a definition. You really shouldn't apply the word "evidence" to whatever you think is appropriate.

Videos and pictures are not evidence. Well, they are, but not of bigfoot. Neither are "tracks" or sounds. They are not evidence of bigfoot. You are making a big mistake when you classify these things as evidence for bigfoot.

This does not apply to bigfoot in any way whatsoever though.

And it's not JUST that we don't have a body in a bag yet (nor ever will), it is that bigfoot violates some of the most fundamental rules that nature has set up for us. As well as the complete lack of an ecological footprint.
My position that the existence of bigfoot is virtually impossible is based in hard science, your position is based on eyewitness reports.

I go with the science.
