Bigfoot Film And The Scale Of Inquiry


I watched the Monsterquest episodes when they put the Patterson film to computer analysis in an attempt to prove it, or debunk it. They had some athlete guy try to mimic the motions of the sasquatch on the film. They claimed he could not do it. That seems kind of strange. Is not walking, just walking? This image of how easy that would have been came from a six year old book!

I have only been around the bigfoot world for a little over a year. What I have found out is there is no governing body. Unlike the UFO people with MUFON, that train researchers to do investigations, nothing like this exist in the bigfoot community, and that I believe is at the heart of the problem, and leads to the perpetuation of the bigbfoot folklore and not the advancement of science.

There are only factions that are trying to put their work out as the purist, or most scientific all the while not really finding much evidence. And they seem to be very jealous of all others. The biggest group is a very closed society called BFRO. They do not except members, and do everything in secret yet wanting people for some reason to think they are best at this.

Considering how long they have been around, why did it take an independent researcher to uncover some interesting stuff. Greg Long, in his book - The Making Of Bigfoot - The Inside Stroy analysis the whole episode leading up to the Patterson/Gimlin film. The work is very extensive and complex. It puts together a story of lies and deceit and an attempt by a shady dude (patterson) to get a big payday. What I find interesting is the Patterson film itself.

Supporters of the film say that no human could reproduce the gait of the animal. Is that so? Bob Heironimus (shown in the photo above) claims he was the one wearing the suit that day Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlim faked the film. This photo shows that when put to scale, the creature was a little over six feet and the same height as Heirominus. Very strange that BFRO does not have this on their website.

Dozier School for Boys

This Florida panhandle town is the home of a mystery that has become quite a scandal in recent months. A small cemetery buried deep into the grounds of a now-defunct boys reform school dates back to the early 1900s. Rusting white steel crosses mark the graves of 31 unidentified former students, and approximately 81 boys in total are known to have died there. The location of the remaining bodies is yet unknown, and is the center of investigation even now.

Throughout its 113-year history, the Dozier School for Boys gained a notorious reputation for beatings, rapes, torture, and even killings perpetrated by staff on students. Despite periodic investigations, changes of leadership, and promises to improve, the allegations of cruelty and abuse continued until confirmed by separate investigations by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in 2010 and the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice in 2011. These investigations prompted state authorities to finally cl…

Vermont's Loch Ness Monster

This monster isn’t in Loch Ness—it’s Champ, the creature thought to reside in Lake Champlain, the 490-square mile body of water on the border of New York, Vermont and Canada. Early reports of a monster in the lake first surfaced in the late 1800s but really hit their peak in the 1980s. Most evidence up to this point, and a famous photograph from 1977, have been discounted or questioned. But two cryptozoologists, or hobbyists who study unknown animals, on the hunt for the creature have made recordings of mysterious sounds that may constitute new evidence in favor of Champ’s existence.

“It was wild. I had seen Champ before, but getting that communication from this animal made the hair on the back of my neck stand up,” said Katy Elizabeth, a horseback riding instructor from Rhode Island who hunts for Champ in her free time with her boyfriend, fellow cryptozoologist Dennis Hall. “That feeling you get when you know a sound is made by a biological thing, that it’s not a man made sound—that…

Skunk Ape Captured on video

This video was shot by Tim Fasano in a major watershed area in Florida that feeds all the drinking water for Tampa. It happened because I was prepared to find something day by having the camera in my car. I saw a good area and possible movement, and went in. After about three hours, I recorded something of major interest.

The establishment of Bigfoot is going to ignore this, of course. They never liked me because I do what nobody will do. I commit to going into the woods on regular basis. I have been doing so for years.
