Just because the Logic debate and the like seems to be dieing down, and I could use a little non-religious discussion. I raise the Question "Is Bigfoot Real?" But before we get down to it, Let's define what I mean by Bigfoot as there are a lot of myths that can befuddle anyone (such as telepathy and dual left footedness). And I will allow speculation of maybe real if one defines their points of evidence why it may not and the evidence that makes it possible. Please refrain from absolute naysaying without evidence to say so (I know.... It's impossible to prove the negative) and refrain from inputting known false or wild speculation. I will start... as I made the thread ... To steal a line from Survivorman show "Do I believe in Bigfoot? Eh... But if you ask if I believe there could be a bipedal ape standing 8+ft with high Intelligence that has attempted to avoid contact with the human race yet being responsible for thousands of sightings? That's another thing entirely" (paraphrased slightly due to laziness) My claim: Maybe, with a likely true outcome Evidences: 1. Thousands of Sightings (Error here is usually perception, people don't know what they are looking at. In addition the number of confirmed hoaxes is staggering as of the last 30 yrs. 2. Repeatable experiments with great success from multiple sources. These experiments tend to fall around food "gifting", returned calling, and manipulated "traffic" signs. (error source in these is hoaxing possible, other species influence, and general mistakes/environmental demonstration) 3. Hundreds of unexplainable images on gamecams (again, same as sightings, but usually not as easily hoaxed) 4. Hair and blood samples taken around gifted areas (Hair and blood was DNA tested and concluded from multiple 3rd parties to be a hybrid and/or mix of Human and an unknown ape DNA) This is one of the most compelling evidences due to the fact that Blood and hair are tough to hoax, and the fact that they were tested by multiple 3rd parties, some of which (supposedly) weren't told what the samples were supposed to be from, makes it very difficult to hoax. 5. HD pictures are popping up that researchers are getting. Many are scrutinized by the public, but many are consistent with each other. (Again Hoaxing possible, but the more pictures come out the more widespread the hoax would need to be) 6. In addition to the returned calls mentioned above, there are hundreds of HD audio recordings. If you take out the option of digital manipulation, these become difficult to hoax, but with today's computers, any hoax is possible as long as it uses digital media. 7. And I'm going to lump these together, Foot prints and poop samples. both are found in large numbers, but both can be deceptively easy to fake. So my answer is possibly, or probably. It would have to be the worlds biggest hoax to accomplish such levels of fake evidences, both in quantity and quality. How about you?
