Let me preface this by saying I am NOT a "believer"....just a curious sort who, based on forensic evidence that would generally hold up in a police investigation, tends to allow for the possibility that a large, bipedal primate exists in North America. So, I thought this would be a fun topic. I am not talking about the so-called whoops and hollars and tree knocks that guys like those goobers from "Finding Bigfoot" always claim...but evidence like the unique dermal ridges in footprints that have been examined by Officer Jimmy Chilcutt in Conroe, TX (who is THE most respected latent print guy in LE circles). I am talking about evidence that would lead a police officer to say "Yeah, this is probably correct". So...with that said...I have been fascinated by the subject since I was a kid and saw the Patterson-Gimlin film which looked like an animal, not a "man in an ape suit" to a kid who grew up on a ranch in the mountains who knows bears, and just about every large critter in the United States. Yes, I have also seen all the BS hoax videos that DO look like a man in an ape suit, and they are SO readily and apparently identifiable as a fake...and they tend to give the Patterson-Gimlin film more credibility. So, just as a curiosity, do any other members here have an actual intellectual/scientific interest in the subject of Bigfoot/Sasquatch? As I said...I am not a "believer"...but a skeptical police mind who would tend to allow for the possibility based on the evidence extant. Honestly, I think it would be cool as all get out for it to actually exist and be proven to exist, and then left alone to live its life.
