Other cryptic animals would have to be true since there's the same evidence accept plaster cast foot prints and maybe DNA. I think but I'm unsure if there's evidence other then word of mouth for another cryptic. What about ghosts?

Personally, I don't really care about ghosts, however we have an entire section devoted to them. Feel free.

I fail to see how this is true. First I can't think of another cryptid who DNA has been recovered.There is a lot of anedotale, evidence for other cryptids but this is far from being Imperical evidence to prove they are real.Even if the DNA is proving to be from bigfoot that does not make the cast real.

We know almost exactly how many stars exist in our milkway but we have no idea of how many species living on our plant.

Once you establish it's a real creature then it isn't a cryptid any more, it's a real creature that requires real scientist with real degrees to study them.

If there's 1 cryptid I believe exists it's Bigfoot. So many cultures have stories about them that are identical (almost).

As we've evolved we have lost most of our animal abilities (hearing, scent, etc) because we haven't needed them. Now imagine a near human-like intelligence on a creature who still has these attributes.

Some people can detect minor electrical fields...similar to walking into a house and sensing a TV is one even if it's on mute. Why couldn't a more primitive creature detect a trap camera, especially since it would have a scent (plastic and human) on it?

I could go on and on, but I won't.

No. If anything we closing in on showing bigfoot is just a myth.

How long can believers go on believing with absolutely nothing believable to base their belief on?  

Eventually people are going realize all this was much ado about nothing...aren't they?

I don't either. But George Washington of all people communicated with one during the Revolutionary War. There's a problem with Ghosts and it's the same as Bigfoot and cryptic animals. Ghost fall into religion too just like Bigfoot and cryptic animals.

Yeah, there are times I feel so convoluted on the subject I feel like a spiral staircase.

I've wondered myself why we haven't seen more or rather better images, but that's part of the lore I suppose. I recall hearing an Indian, excuse me Native American, talk about the lore of his tribe and he said they believed they could hide themselves so well, like become unseen by humans, no to be confused with invisible. He said they could be standing right in front of you and you'd not see them. Just find footprint later after they left.  Which I find a little creepy, but it's NA lore, so there it is.

So did Jesus, Mohammad, Moses and the Buddha. Was it a ghost or a vision? Or something else completely? Although I'm not aware of anyone worshiping Bigfoot.....or Washington come to think of it.

Very interesting statement kampz. Can you elaborate on the religious/cryptid link?

I see no harm in looking so long as it doesn't become an obsession. I happen to like being out in the woods myself, hiking and camping and all that so while I'm out I might as well do a bit of looking for old Sasquatch, after all the time is mine to waste.

Still waiting for evidence to prove that Bigfoot doesn't exist but also still waiting for evidence to proof he exist to though. This is what science (to seek the truth) is all about. Aristolotle said it best "All men by nature have a disere to know."

We know almost exactly how many stars exist in our milkway but we have no idea of how many species living on our plant.

Ancient Sumer and Native American Lore.

Ghosts and Spirits like the spirit of God is all over religion.

Bigfoot and spirits actually seem to be apart of there everyday lives especially Native Americans.

The western gorilla specimens were from Liberia, the mountain gorilla specimens were in Rwanda, or nearby, which is bordered by Burundi.

Regardless, both were known to the locals for sometime prior to westerners documenting them.

With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos, yet other beings with wider, stronger, or different range of senses might not only see very differently the things we see, but might see and study whole worlds of matter, energy, and life which lie close at hand yet can never be detected with the senses we have." - H.P. Lovecraft, "From Beyond" Published 1934
