Bigfoot Research is becoming quite acceptable now days. More and more people are taking up their video cameras and headed for the forests to see what they can capture on video. However, many believe this is a foolish endeavor and is a total waste of time. These are the naysayers. Naysayers feel it to be their duty to show the Bigfoot believers the errors of their ways through perusing the internet sites such as You-tube and Facebook to make corrective comments. Which makes me wonder why? If they don’t believe in Bigfoot why waste their time watching the videos and looking at photos? Sometimes their comments are very passionate filled with profane, degrading, demeaning, belittling and hurtful words probably meant to shock the Bigfoot believer into reality or to shame them to quit posting such “nonsense”. Then they wonder why their comments are not approved and their names are blocked. I have had my share of naysayers. Some of them get down-right threatening.
Bigfoot believers are very resilient. Yes, it is unpleasant to experience the negative comments, but they know what they have seen and experiences. A growing number of them will not be intimidated, and they are on a quest to find the truth. Most of them already know the truth, but are either trying to prove it to the world (these are Bigfoot hunters), or they are genuinely trying to learn about the creature’s life style, habits, diets, social structures, longevity, and birth rates (these are Bigfoot researchers).
Bigfoot hunters are concerned with proof. Proof through science or that million dollar video or photo. Most of them believe the only proof that will be accepted by science is a body. Never mind there has been several DNA studies that indicate the creature does exist, and there are more DNA studies coming forth in the future. Some of these folks can get pretty agressive about their opinions.
Bigfoot researchers on the other hand are faced with a monumental task of gathering data. After all, Bigfoot does not cooperate. Have you ever tried to photograph a black cat at midnight with no moon or stars or hides in the dark shadows of the day? No wonder there are so many squatch-blobs. But, this does not deter the Bigfoot researchers. They continue to amass tidbits of information that gives an insight to the elusive creature. I was once told by Susan Farnsworth, “…you must collect all the data regardless of how absurd or true. Put it all on the table and start matching clues. The clues with the most matches will be the closest to the truth…”
So, which do you choose to be?
