After battling Bigfoot believers for months on end, our favorite skeptic Timmy has finally come to his senses, or so it seems. As one of the harshest skeptics to ever visit our website, he had challenged nearly every article and sometimes it even seems like he sits around hitting the refresh button-- just waiting for a new post to pop up.
Lately, it appears that Timmy has been mellow in his responses to our articles. Although, he seemed to take pains to tone down his rhetoric, which was sometimes more inflammatory than the diatribes of other skeptics who troll this blog-- Timmy's attitude (if it's the real Timmy) has changed from: "I don't believe there is a Bigfoot" to a much more, "I'm not a believer in the actual, physical entity just yet."
We decided to followup on Timmy's most recent comments to see what led him to this sudden change of heart. If the comments are really from him, his opinion on Bigfoot changed after he was "emotionally convinced" by a friend during a recent fishing trip in Northern California. According to his comments, getting a confession from a true friend was truly humbling to him. "I came as a troll, I morphed to a hardened asshole skeptic, now I think Im a Bigfoot Agnostic," he confessed.
We decided to track down what his friend said to him that was so convincing. After a series of unTimmy-like comments, a commenter posted to the following to Timmy:

@ Timmy: I dont get you You were here for months hating and trashing Bigfoot now the logical discussion points? I'm impressed. Are you multiple people or did you just decide to stop being a prick and help us research? Why the big change? Keep it up we might let you keep playing devil's advocate ; )
Here is Timmy's response (if it's the real Timmy):

I had an honest change of heart: I went fishing with a 30+ year friend, and I was joking about razzing everyone on this very website with him. We began talking about our ol' buddy Trey wih the fake feet, etc, joking about all the Bigfoot stuff.....and then as serious as can be, he says "Tim youll think Im BSing but I have seen the real deal, at Blue Lake". After hearing his story, he believes he saw two young of different ages and a mother Sasquatch. Ive known this guy since elementary school, church, families etc alll attached growing up. we have hunted and fished together for years and I KNOW He isnt lying to me, and right then I decided a lot of others here are probably sincere believers too. I may not believe, but I can always be mistaken and take it more seriously....not sure what friend saw, but it spooked him.
my attitude completely changed, he is telling the truth 100%, one reason why I quit trolling so much about three weeks ago was because he saw something.......I honestly cant believe til I see it, and I will be looking closely now. I ALWAYS carry a SuperRedhawk Alaska edition .454 Casull in the woods, so i will never be scared but definitely will look around more. I hunt with this guy since childhood...we both know the woods....he was basically crying when he told me, and asked me to stop the jokes because he knew they were real. No way would this friend do that to me...but could he have hallucinated or something? He is used to high altitudes, familiar with the area, so its a weird touching deal for me....
To be honest, we're not entirely convinced that this is the real Timmy that we all know and love so dearly. How is it possible that such a staunched skeptic can change his position in such a short time? If we can confirm it was actually Timmy who posted the comments above, perhaps there is some truth to the theory that most skeptics who troll this site are just "closet" believers?
