Skeptic: The Real Bigfoot Myth

Recently I have noticed a lot of conversations taking place in the bigfoot community on the subject of skeptics and skepticism. Unfortunately what I have read usually results in the same outcome; a matter of "us versus them". Choose your side accordingly. However, the truth of the matter is that skepticism belongs in the bigfoot community. The problem I see taking place is that instead of skepticism being an integral part of bigfoot research, it has become its own entity. Many people who take the self-titled position of "skeptic" do not practice healthy and true skepticism in my opinion. Instead they have isolated themselves along the outskirts of the bigfoot community, where they pick and attack any claims or evidence that comes out in support of the existence of these creatures. They use blanket statements such as "believers" to lump individuals together who are in support of these creatures existing factually, which in turn is a double standard. They t…

Sykes DNA Results Yeti Matches Rare Bear

Image
Recently there has been some speculation due to several press releases about an upcoming documentary special highlighting the DNA work of Professor Bryan Sykes, as he delves into the mystery of the Yeti, and its North American Relatives the Bigfoot/Sasquatch.

The Bigfoot research community has been buzzing with speculation as to what Professor Sykes discovered in his ongoing DNA project, with many hopeful it would once and for all prove that Bigfoot is a real, and as of yet, unclassified species.

According to an article published by The Independent, Professor Sykes has discovered that the Yeti DNA samples he tested matched an ancient Polar Bear. Sykes believes the most likely explanation is that the Yeti is actually a hybrid, not a human and some unknown ancient unknown primate, but of a Polar and Brown bear.

Animal Planet Live Bigfoot Cam Update and Correction

Image
Animal Planet recently added a Live Bigfoot Cam to their collection of Live Web Cam feeds, where users can tune in and watch the woods for their favorite cryptid, right from the comfort of their own home. It's a fantastic and entertaining concept for Bigfoot enthusiasts, and so far seems to be a big hit around the Sasquatch community. There are also feeds of many other interesting animals, including one I viewed tonight of cockroaches, set up in a miniature kitchen area. The real kicker was the TV screen on the wall which happened to be playing the Bigfoot cult classic, Legend of Boggy Creek. They allow users to vote weekly on what movies they want to watch, or rather want the cockroaches to enjoy. All the Live cams are great, so be sure to check them out. At least when you're not trying to catch a glimpse of the elusive hominid.

In my first blog article about the camera feed, I had been misinformed and incorrectly stated that the Bigfoot cam project was in partnership with Me…

Ketchum Proves Bigfoot Real (Again)

Image
Perseverance. Tenacity. Persistence. Determination. These are some of the qualities one could use to describe Dr. Melba Ketchum. Of course I could think of several less flattering examples, but for now I will remain positive. I mean after all, this woman has endured many obstacles. Yet still she keeps her head held high, face into the wind, and proceeds to carry on. On, and on, and on.


Let's recap. Pardon me if I'm not 100% accurate or scientific as some of you would like, I'm trying to make this simple. Ketchum solicits for possible bigfoot samples that may contain viable DNA to carry out a bigfoot genome project that she will conduct, based on her vast experience in the field of horse DNA. Ketchum later claims she did not solicit for samples. Numerous people, both reputable and many considered less than so, send in their samples with blind faith in the good doctor. People with money to burn fund the project out of pocket. Years pass, people start asking for results. Ketc…

HOAX

Image
An unfortunate reality of bigfoot research is the ever present danger of the hoax. Just the word itself has a ring of evil and darkness to it, conjuring up thoughts of witches and black magic, or Rick Dyer. I think everyone is aware of how much damage a hoax can do to the field of bigfoot study, especially since it is already viewed as a tongue-in-cheek subject by nearly everyone outside of the bigfoot community. My question is, do people really take the time to sit back and think about what a hoax really is? We throw the term around freely at will, without ever really considering if what we are talking about is a hoax or not. Very seldom does one think of the flip side of the coin, which is the damage that can be caused from falsely accusing someone of a hoax. How can we give a specific definition to something, that is actually a very complex subject?
