That's what they said about the coelacanth, that deer that was supposed to be extinct in Asia, numerous species of gigantic spiders...the lust goes on and on...it seems that the only thing scientists excel at more than making discoveries is being completely wrong, lol...
Which I why I just smirk when one of these self satisfied experts claim something doesn't or can't exist.
Case in point, Graham Hancock's assertion there was civilisation prior to what the establishment believed.
NONSENSE, HERETIC!!! they all bellowed.
..then gobekli tepi.
Cities under water off of the coast of India that had to be there thousands of years before sumeria.
So, yeah, I wouldn't jump on the no way train so easily.

My theory is that it is a Gigantopithecus species variety that also crossed the land bridge into North America. From what all the hundreds of reports I have read online and from what I have experienced are the following common traits:
- They are very tall and very muscular. Most sightings report 7 feet and above.
- They have a pointy sloping head with thick brow ridge
- Have flat, flared nose
- Have a short neck. Most say head just sits on the shoulders.
- Have a wide mouth with large teeth
- Have auburn, brown, black or white hair (not fur). Some in different combinations.
- Long arms that reach the knees
- Different stride than humans. Fluid like with great speed.
- Evidence of huge lung capacity when they growl/scream.
- Behaviours such as wood knocking or clacking stones together.Also throwing rocks/pebbles at people and property.
- Tree shaking
- Bob side to side when excited/alarmed about seeing a human.
- Footprints are very large with wide strides.
- May have nocturnal vision due to eye-shine when sighted at night.
- Pungent body odor/smell. Common descriptions are musky, garbage, wet dog/animal, sulphorous, and even a dirty diaper smell.
- Several sightings describe a strange language. Samurai/Japanese-like chatter.
- Stalking behaviour when trying to scare away intruders.
- Heavy foot falls when they are running.
They are not a creation by Altantians and they are not interdimensional. Or an experimental hybrid from thousands of years ago. Just an elusive offshoot of a primate species that is still evolving.
As humans we can speak because our anatomy changed to an upright position, thus allowing structures like our voice box to develop. The same can be said of Bigfoot/Sasquatch since several witnesses have described a crude Samurai like chatter. Les Stroud from Survivorman described and encounter in Alaska where the creature was whooping at him like an ape and shaking trees.

if bigfoot were not hyper-dimensionally mythically abstract, why would we not have any solid evidence? the profile of bigfoot evidence more closely parallels ufo accounts/experiences than it does any cave dwelling hominoid. not to say bigfoot is connected to ufos [or that bigfoot is not], but rather that mythological dimensions defy space/time and even dimensionally reality. the native American accounts are proof of mythological spiritual realities, not cavedwelling giants.

We had bigfoot sightings here in Cleveland. There wear sightings at an old cemetary on the near west side by Madison Avenue. They finally caught him, it turned out to be a Big Polish guy in a fur coat picking mushrooms in the moonlight.

Except when they're on video and your brain doesn't have to do that. That explanation is complete nonsense.
The hair samples do NOT all turn out to be bears.
And what about the footprints that are of such high detail that they leave behind dermal ridges? There goes the "distorted by ground conditions" explanation. What about footprint tracks found through snow with a gait much larger than a human could reproduce? How did a human make those?

I maintain there are two categories of potential investigation that are worthwhile to explore but are virtually disregarded by mainstream science:
Sorting the wheat from the chaff becomes problematic.
You know once upon a time the world was virtually covered with dinosaurs. The first remains weren't discovered until the mid 1800's.
The gorilla was a rumor until the mid 1800s.
I don't KNOW that Bigfoot exists, but I'm not going to be shocked when one is found intact. And when it is, it'll be some goof in a sock hat farting around in the woods stumbling across one because science isn't looking.

If I were to shoot and kill a Bigfoot would I be an adventurer, hero, cryptic scientists, or a cold blooded murderer?
After you decided, only then we can discuss whither or not Bigfoot is an ape or human?
Tuff choice isn't it?
I have spent more time in the deep forest than most and never seen a Bigfoot, yet one night in the gorge near Fall Creek Falls TN. I heard something that made my blood run cold. I had with me an Alasken, half wolf Malamute named Thunder, about a 150 pound of pure muscle and attitude, he wasn't afraid of anything. Yet he cried like a baby and hid his face at the sounds.

Seeing this thread is interesting for me as I have seen bigfoot in the flesh from 40ft away in broad daylight the summer before this one and just had an encounter a few weeks back in another part of Washington state. Both times my mother was with me and the first time she was hypnotized or as she says just thinking about something (looked to be spacing out or something). The second encounter was just as interesting to me since as I will mention in the thread she heard the vocalization plain as day and we were pulled over to a stop for a flagger gal. Thing is this flagger girl did not flinch, did not express any fear at all and really acted like she had heard nothing in the same instant as she is standing there with her flag and a blank look on her face. I will create my thread with locations and detailed story but just know this guys and gals the legends are indeed true.

If we assume that Bigfoot is real, then IMO he is interdimensional. I think this can explain a lot of the Cryptid sightings around the world. However, there I go explaining one unknown with another unknown
