I found this on the front page of LDS living


For those who don't know what LDS Living is, it's a Mormon lifestyle website. We were amazed to see Bigfoot on the front page of their premiere website. What we learned just blew us away. Bigfoot is officially a part of Mormon folklore, and some LDS members actually believe that Bigfoot is Cain from the Bible, as explained:

There may be more to fear from Bigfoot than the fact that he’s big and hairy: some say that the legendary North American woodland ape is Cain.

Though there’s no way to prove or disprove this particular tale, knowing the source of the legend can shed some light on why this conclusion has been made. Abraham Smoot recorded the following after early Church Apostle David W. Patten described an encounter he had with Cain in 1835:

As I was riding along the road on my mule I suddenly noticed a very strange person walking beside me. . . . His head was about even with my shoulders as I sat in my saddle. He wore no clothing, but was covered with hair. His skin was very dark. I asked him where he dwelt and he replied that he had no home, that he was a wanderer in the earth and traveled to and fro. He said he was a very miserable creature, . . . and his mission was to destroy the souls of men.

This entry was included in Spencer W. Kimball’s The Miracle of Forgiveness, which was originally published in 1969. In 1980, sightings of the legendary Bigfoot were reported in South Weber, Utah. Members made connection with these sightings to Patten’s story of Cain, effectively beginning the tale. Reeve believes Mormons use this story to connect an unexplainable event with proof that the Saints are doing a good job. “When Satan sends Cain against Mormons, . . . they think, ‘we must be on the right path, or Satan wouldn’t bother sending in his most evil hordes against us.’”

    1. It makes me laugh... You people will use a conman to peddle the nonsesne of a conman (Greg Long), I guess kids will adhere to anything to sleep better at night, eh?

      A cult? Brother... You people adhere to something far worse; a religion that's terrified of what other people not only think, but are cleverer in agknokwldeging as something far more significant than a ten thousand year old conspiracy to take your money (cuckoo!) Pseudoscepticism is a fundamental quasi religion.

      On... And got monkey suit?

    4. Does that mean you belong to the Cult of Bigfoot Disbeliever's who spend an inordinate amount of time arguing the topic on a Bigfoot website or Loser for short?

    8. Watcha Iktomi. Sykes has good stuff. Waiting the scientific paper. Walla Walla sample has to be considered as well. Tim,U.K.

    9. Tim brother!!

      I heard somewhere that Sykes' initial findings are that the hairs are a match for some found in Russia! Really exciting stuff and Freeman would be landed if he were alive to see some of his evidence being analysed by someone so significant.

      Fascinating stuff my friend. Hope you are well.

    10. Alright mate, hope all cool with you.

      "Eventually I found a match in a rather obscure database from Central Asia. The Walla Walla sample matched an induvidual from Uzbekistan!
      \how on earth could that be explained\ \I have not had long to think about it, but my immediate thought is that I find it very difficult to reconcile this result on the Walla Walla hair with the impressive provenance provided for it by Paul Freeman and his companions."
      The Walla Walla hair result is the most intriguing from among my North American samples. I scarcely think I can claim to have identified the sasquatch as a feral Uzbek, but that is the closest I have managed to get at the moment".

    4. For those who don't know what the Kinderhook plate is, these guys as a prank made this bronze tablet with made up writing on it and gave it to Joseph Smith (the Mormon founding prophet) and he was able to interpret it, which shows he was a con man. He was actually convicted of fraud in New York before he ever started his church and got around 32 wives.

  8. So if Romney would have been elected president then he would have ordered Bigfoot to be shot on sight thinking that it was Cain who was bent on destroying the souls of men?

    THANK YOU OBAMA!
