The Search for Bigfoot

In North America and Asia the search for Bigfoot has been well under way since the early 1800's. Many different cultures of the world have legends and written texts involving mysterious ape-like loners. Despite the creatures popularity the search for Bigfoot has never turned out any real or conclusive evidence.

No excrement has ever been discovered - sure, there are claims that excrement has been found but after testing experts could not seriously say one way or another whether it belonged to the famous Bigfoot. The search for Bigfoot once threw up a so-called Yeti hand in a part of Asia. This hand was apparently a strong piece of evidence but little has been heard about it in recent years.

Regardless of the lack of findings, the search for Bigfoot always seems to persist and is very popular. People love the idea of a strange, unknown beast with the ability and intelligence to stay hidden in it's natural surroundings. Opinion is divided on the nature of the beast though, depending on where in the world you are. I'd say well over fifty percent think that the creature is probably a flesh animal. The rest tend to lean to a more spiritual outlook were they believe Bigfoot is a spirit entity that shows itself to man in times of crisis.

I like the idea of this second theory a lot the more I think about it. Indians in Alaska are convinced the Bigfoot makes appearances to communities that have lost their way with mother nature. Bigfoot is said to be a messenger to these places that reminds them to respect their surroundings.

The search for Bigfoot is not just geared towards North America and Asian countries, there are sightings all over the world. About eight years ago a group of Bigfoot investigators turned up in Newcastle, England after a large amount of sightings were reported. This creature fast became known as The Beast of Bolam. Out of the whole party six members made first hand reports of actually spotting the creature.

The members of the party that spotted this strange beast were quick to say that they did not think the creature was of flesh and blood. This was largely due to the fact that the figure was a very tall, grey-colored creature that was linked more to the paranormal. They also pointed out that England did not have the habitat to support an ape like creature. The search for Bigfoot will go on and on until some hard evidence is found to support the reports and sightings.

This subject has always fascinated me since I grew up near the area where the Patterson Bigfoot was filmed. For me the jury is still out whether or not this is a real creature or a figment of active imaginations. I think LLoyd Pye makes some interesting observations that are based on good common sense, especially about the footprint evidence but I don't buy the whole alien intervention theory. Great article.

thanks bob, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Active imaginations could well be the cause of half the sightings ( especially in this day and age! )
