Episode #21:  Is Bigfoot Real or Fake?

In this episode, I'm going to venture into another topic in the paranormal world. Is Bigfoot real or fake? This is a highly popular and controversial question.

Is Bigfoot real or fake?  My thoughts

This is tricky for several reasons.  First, I've never seen one in person so I can not say for sure either way.  However, I believe it isn't out of the realm of possibility.  There might be a large bipedal ape-like creature wandering around in the dense forests of the world.

Let's think about North America for now.  The forest of Canada and The United States can be dense and a perfect hideout for a shy Bigfoot.  Most people live in urban or suburban areas.  There isn't a sizable population calling the impenetrable forest home.

In my opinion, people look at the question, is Bigfoot real or fake, through a filter of their surroundings.  If a person lives a highly populated area; then, of course, they think Bigfoot is just a legend and doesn't exist.  However, there are still areas, around the world, that have a dense forest with not a lot of daily foot traffic.  So, in fact, there are plenty of hiding places for cryptids to hide out.


We know and have evidence that a giant ape did exist in the past and walked the earth along with homo erectus. 

Gigantopithecus is believed to have gone extinct around one hundred thousand years ago.

Some believe that maybe Gigantopithecus did not disappear any might be responsible for the modern day and Bigfoot sightings in the past.  Is this possible?  That's a good question, and my answer is that I don't know.  However, anything is possible I guess.

Should we even be looking for Bigfoot

This is a tough question.  My feeling is what can it hurt to leave the option open.  We are finding new species all the time.  So heading out into the woods in search of finding out if Bigfoot lives among us is perfectly ok.

All of the sightings that are reported has to account for something; this question needs an answer.  All of these witnesses can't be crazy.  They see something.  The question is, what are they seeing.

Some of these sightings are regular animals that appear to be something they aren't, because of adrenaline, fear, or an animal with an injury that causes them to appear different.  However, that can be the case in every situation.

We need rational people looking and trying to find answers.  That's the only way we will get to the bottom of this mystery.
