World's Only 24/7 Bigfoot News Blog: Encouraging readers to draw their own conclusions from the evidence and arguments.
Right in my face baby
Oh boy more stories. You know you can't get enough of these personal accounts. Even after you have heard thousands of them. It's all the proof you really need because Bigfoot researchers are all decent people and don't lie. I can't wait to hear the next one!
Sounds like you're really into it. (Another dumb footer) ^
...At least the stories relate their own experience(true or not)...Too many of these sites just relate any old bs that comes their way...
Some people lie, all who recount their stories put their necks on the line though, and have far more to lose than gain. For whatever frequency are being honest, there's a level of physical evidence that's suppers what they're saying. 8:08 is getting very impatient and losing the will to live, not quite being able to come out of the Bigfoot closet right now.
Still zero proof that bigfoot exists. I've been waiting since the 1970s for proof that bigfoot exists. Still nothing.
If you were that interested, you'd know that such a steady flow of evidence since even before you've been "interested", can only mean one thing.
...Yes Joe, but there is also a steady stream of failure: every time the hypothesis is tested, not a whit of evidence is found..Of course there is much that could be called compelling, but the lack of any kind of evidence( a bone, video from credible source..etc) that could get the mainstream off its butt is problematic...There have been serious attempts in prime areas(Olympic project, Nawac) and they, like all else before, come up lame...I am not advocating for non-existence(I.e I am not a denier), but genuine skepticism is not unreasonable...Anyway, have a good one...EEG...
I'll say it again... There is nothing more profound than repeatable scientific evidence, which this subject has. As trace evidence for further investigation, it would be good enough for mainstream science regarding any other biological creature... But due to the repercussions of what the trace evidence for Sasquatch entails, it's not good enough. "An extraordinary idea requires extraordinary evidence", and until mainstream science investigates this evidence properly, then the failures are down their incompetence, nothing more.
Okay here's what I don't understand: You say mainstream science won't investigate. Why not force their hand by submitting a paper with all this repeatable scientific evidence to a journal by all these experts you constantly cite? Because of peer review they would have no choice but to look into it. I would think Dr. Meldrum would have some clout to get together fellow advocates and work up a paper with all this evidence you talk about. The show Finding Bigfoot has a sizable base of listeners which they could rally to push and support this effort. The publicity generated by the show would get national attention and mainstream science would have no choice but to look at it. Look at Dr. Sykes - he did precisely that and it got all sorts of media attention. If the evidence is so conclusive than the scientists who review it will have to explain why it is not.
Finding Bigfoot & Dr Meldrum are both total jokes, and have done NOTHING to prove this!You send my info to EVERY scientist you can, tell them i will openly debate them whenever, wherever!
And Sykes is another IDIOT! Did nothing, and won't do anything to prove the species exists!
"Why not force their hand by submitting a paper with all this repeatable scientific evidence to a journal by all these experts you constantly cite?"The answer is in my initial comment... "Extraordinary ideas require extraordinary evidence". Track impressions are also usually used to track a creature, not be published first, then used. That's the cart before the horse and the perfect example of the typical approach, of how high the bar is set with regards to "extraordinary evidence". Meldrum as well as every other major proponent of the subject understands that no forensic evidence is gonna be enough to convince people that an extant caveman is running around the wilderness of North America. I'm not ignorant enough to think I talk on behalf of anyone. But unfortunately, the majority of people who believe in the existence of this creature watch Finding Bigfoot, and it's no coincidence that they have their knowledge of the evidence for this subject embodied in that programme. The general public which account for people in all professions including mainstream scientists, have these televised "flag ships" like as the main mainstream output, which would make anyone remotely intelligent cynical.
..Joe if by repeatable you mean, for example, that tracks with dermal ridges have been found more than once and endorsed as such by experts than I agree that has happened..More generally, more than once tracks have been found that an expert(Krantz, Meldrum Chilcut,) determined had a genuine physical characteristic(bone structure, tarsel break, ridges)..ThanksCurious, Krantz has a paper on ridges and Meldrum has one about the tracks left at the PGF site..They cant force people to respond to them..
Okay - that makes sense so we agree something biological is needed for actually proof. Now Dr. Sykes DNA study failed to do so but what about the various hair samples I have read about. Would that not constitute proof if put in the context of a scientific paper submitted to a journal? I believe you know my feelings about the show Finding Bigfoot however it can't be denied that if produced properly it could spur more action being taken by mainstream science. It my opinion it has failed miserably at such and in fact has done far more damage than good.Anon 4:23 - I'm afraid anyone can produce a paper but to get a response it must be submitted to a peer reviewed scientific entity. That way they at least have to show why they don't agree with what is submitted.
Mr Curious... please remember that I'm merely putting uninterested scientist's idealism into context by stating that the current state of repeatable evidence isn't good enough. A body is needed for classification, to many people who understand that the frequency of evidence can't be hoaxed, then its existence isn't a question. There was no doubting the trace evidence for man sized chimps (Bili Ape), before they were used to track it. I think Sykes' work would never have convinced people that there is an anomalous primate residing in the wilderness of the US, it might have got mainstream scientists to listen however.You won't find a deer with a film crew and screaming in the wilderness, let alone the most elusive creature on the planet.
Don't TELL us about your experiences, SHOW US THE PROOF!Don't show us your face...SHOW US A BIGFOOT FACE!!
