I like your take on this, it seems very open minded and honest. It's a very old phenomena and spans several continents. No doubt there is something
The chances of breeding populations of large unknown hominids being the cause of it all is remote enough to be (IMO) discounted. The evidence put
forward (even by certain scientists) is so extremely poor that even when it isn't hoaxed, it looks like an exercise in wishful thinking. I doubt any
of it withstands scrutiny. It all simply appears to be a sociological/ psychological phenomena.
I still think there is more to it than that though and doubt the social sciences (or anything else) can really explain it away. In some (certainly not
all) instances I think people do encounter such things. Though I have no idea why.
I did actually have an encounter myself one time with the strangest looking creature I have ever seen. Being a sceptical type and possibly not really
believing what I was seeing, I didn't just bolt either. A strange little game of hide and seek followed. In the end I would have to allow that it was
the one of the quietest most evasive creatures on the planet, intelligent enough to know my every move before I did to the point it seemed like
reading my mind, or look for other explanation. Nothing about it made sense. Given the lack of any other indication they physically exist, which also
makes no sense, I choose "other explanation" at this stage.Without knowing what that might be.
I remember one stage finding it had simply moved behind me while I was looking for it, completely puzzled by what was going on. It was almost laying
on the ground behind a bush, with a branch pulled back, must have quietly been watching me stumble around trying to work out where it went. I stood
there stunned for a short while staring into it's eyes, the look of surprise on it's face. Like it was surprised at being seen.
So while I doubt they are a race of unknown hominids, I sympathise with people who do have such encounters and wish to be taken seriously. I don't
fool myself at how my own story sounds and never take offence when people don't believe it. I can also understand why the local traditional people
regard them as supernatural. Though I don't really believe that either. Nothing about these creatures anywhere in the world stacks up like it should
if they physically exist. Yet I have seen one. I have found no explanation.
