The Church of Mabus Show host Jeffrey Pritchett likes to interview some strange characters sometimes. He is the master of getting people to spill their thoughts on paranormal subjects such as ESP, Ghosts, UFOs, and Bigfoot (not really our intention to categorize Bigfoot as paranormal. Unlike other subjects, Bigfoot is real). Jerome Clark, author of the book "Unexplained! Strange Sightings, Incredible Occurrences, and Puzzling Physical Phenomena" is the latest to open up to Pritchett. Here’s the question Pritchett sent to Clark asking about his thoughts on Bigfoot:
I am curious to your views on bigfoot in your hairy bipeds section you go into this. So what exactly do you think Bigfoot is? A lot of hype on it being wild beings or lost tribes of neanderthals to them being aliens. Your feelings on bigfoot?
My impression is that the Sasquatch of the Pacific Northwest -- a complicated matter that I decided for time and space reasons not to cover in the new edition (besides, it's the subject of a whole lot of books easily obtainable elsewhere) -- is the one anomalous phenomenon most likely to be validated in the reasonably near future, probably as a heretofore-unknown great ape. The scientific work done on this particular question is quite astonishing and productive, and it is likely going to produce solid answers before long.
I separate Sasquatch, which to all appears is a zoological animal in the normal sense of the phrase, from what I call Hairy Bipeds, which are descendants of the Wild Man tradition. They're reported just about everywhere on the North American continent and around the planet. Whatever they are or are not, they are residents of the Goblin Universe, not of consensus reality. That doesn't mean they're simply imaginary, of course. The experiences people report of them are deeply strange and probably impossible to explain within current knowledge. But their relationship to Sasquatch, in my opinion, is more apparent than real.
