You can think I'm wrong all you want buddy.
I'm going to think you're wrong.
I know you and I disagree but there's nothing to say we're both right or both wrong either.
When and if evidence surfaces I have to see it with my own eyes.
Let us hope that proof of this being real or even a hoax surfaces in our lifetimes.

I do not see a probably about it.
I see there is a definite pattern of money spent, time spent, and projects running.
This book is sitting in my Amazon shopping cart waiting for money to buy it.
It's an engineering book about building facilites underground.
I have other books on this but this is by far the most elaborate.
Underground Space Design: Part 1: Overview of Subsurface
Space Utilization Part 2: Design for People in Underground Facilities
Amazon Review :
Underground space development may be one of the most significant was to contend with urban predicaments such as congestion, lack of open space, and
However, designers must consider whether or not people will be willing to live and work in what could be perceived as inhospitable environments.
Should people be required to work in underground facilities, Or should underground space be used solely for mechanical or transit services and
low-occupancy functions such as storage?
What must designers do to create subsurface spaces that will avoid or alleviate the psychological and physiological problems associated with being
Underground Space Design is the first comprehensive book on subsurface space utilization throughout the world.
The authors supply a complete overview of the entire range of underground uses by reflecting on the past, present, and future of underground
Underground Space Design is the result of a five-year joint research study by the Underground Space Center at the University of Minnesota and the
Shimizu Institute of Technology in Japan.
This thorough, scholarly, and practical source offers extensive coverage of the relevant topics including:
* an analysis of current underground land use
* the future of underground development
* comprehensive set of classifications
* a summary of existing research on psychological issues
* exterior and entrance design patterns
* layout and spatial configuration patterns
* interior design patterns
* methods of lighting
* life safety design patterns
Elaborately designed and illustrated, this book is the first complete source to present the broad range of underground design and uses, making it an
ideal reference for architects, interior designers, civil engineers, geotechnical engineers, city planners, developers, and environmental
Underground Space Design is also an excellent introduction to the field, precisely serving the needs of students and other professionals.
Most people who would hide out in the woods seeking sighting of "Bigfoot" are likely to die out there.

I've never said the sightings were limited to the Northwest regions of America.
That was other people, re-read my original post, I mention "Bigfoot", "Sasquatch", the "Yeti", the "Yowie".
Even the "Skunk Ape".
I still see them all as elaborate hoaxes and or perpetrated fraud.
And your definition of "credible witnesses" differs from mine I assure you.
I could care less if President Barack Obama witnessed it.
I'd want to see the body, dead, or alive.

One must consider many options.
The "alleged" origins of "Bigfoot" might also be linked to the "Missing Link".
Considering it, believing it, and even admitting I believe that are three very different things.
Websites, books, and hearsay stories are not going to convince me anymore.
I've grown past that and did that quite a long time ago.
An actual sighting, or even being attacked by one, surviving it or not is the only thing to convince me.
That or a body to examine.
I am open-minded enough to examine stories, books, and websites, even admitting I was wrong if it is proven.
I am however closed off to it being pushed upon me.
Not that you or anyone else is necessarily doing that.
My stepfather was a Marine, during the Vietnam War, he taught me there are certain things you never quantify without putting your hands on,
eyeballing, or even tracking down the specific information for yourself due to the nature of each person's perception, overall ability to critically
and neutrally investigate, and or lack thereof, and or because they might not be ground in reality.
