Why should I believe? Why should anyone believe?
Belief in Bigfoots seems to be problematic for me because they don't seem apparent and don't seem to be detectable. Many people claim to have
subjective experiences that have confirmed the existence of a Bigfoot for them, but I haven't had one. Texts of all kinds claim to be written by or
inspired by a living Bigfoot though all such texts appear to be simply literature, watermarked by the limited knowledge and ignorance present in the
epochs in which they were written.
Though belief in Bigfoots may provide a sense of relief during moments of unpleasant human emotions (grief, desperation, fear, etc.), how does the
same brain in a rational state justify belief in something indistinguishable from the non-existent? If you are a Bigfoot, why should I or anyone
believe in you? Why specifically do you believe?
