Actually, my favorites were "Fact or Faked" because it was fun seeing them try to duplicate a "paranormal" event, and "Destination Truth" because it was done in good humor, with tongue at least somewhat in cheek. The other shows (whether cryptic or ghost related) take themselves waaay too seriously ... and apparently expect their audiences to do the same.So I'd say, they're not silly enough.

Looking forward to the next entry in the paranormal reality series sweepstakes: "Redneck Bigfoot Ghost Huntin', Featuring Special Guests Honey Boo-Boo and Turtle Man".

Real or What with William Shatner was awesome. They offered logical explanation for everything they looked at. Usually, they gave the paranormalists the last word, but with it is being subtly said that the scientific explanation is the better one.

Large mammals require A LOT of nutrient-rich food and a sizeable breeding population. Large primates exist only in areas where there is lots of fruit or nutrient rich plant material for them to feed on, and even in the remotest of remote areas, there are sizeable enough breeding populations that we can find them.

Neither of those conditions exist in the Pacific Northwest or northeast Asia.

Sure, there are lots and lots of plants in the Pacific Northwest, but none of them that can support a large mammal. Large mammals can't live off pine needles and bark. The natural fruits in those areas are not plentiful enough to feed a sizeable population of large mammals.

Bears! you say. Bears live there. True enough, and bears supplement their diet by being omnivorous, and we have lots and lots and lots of encounters with bears, because in areas as heavily populated as the Pacific northwest, it is impossible for a healthy breeding population not to run into humans. If Bigfoot existed, we would have lots of photographs and a hunter would have shot one by now.

Is it absolutely and completely impossible that Bigfoot exists? No. But it is EXTREMELY unlikely. I'd bet on running into Elvis at 7-11 at the slushie machine before I'd bet on meeting Bigfoot in the woods.
How do you know that Bf is not Omnivorous?

I have seen crap that i thought was BF and it had a lot of berry seeds in it.

There are quite a bit more Bf in TX,OK,AR,MS,AL,MO.GA. than most people know.

How do you know that one has not been shot?

Until a person gets out in the field them self they can only speculate.

We don't. But if BF was omnivorous he would have to hunt, fish, or scavenge. We'd have a decent photo or even a corpse by now. The only way such a huge creature could remain hidden in such densely populated areas is if there were only a dozen of them, and that would be such an unhealthy breeding population that young Bigfoots would have all sorts of genetic defects and be playing banjo on the porch.

There are quite a few photos. They just re not out thre for public consumption. Who wants to be laughed at. Only a body will prove this. I started looking at this stuff as a hoax and i cannot make it a hoax.
When the rocksstart flying past your had and the trees get shaken like they are twigs and the screaming then you know there is more to this than many people know.
Look back at some threads on CD and you will see pictures i have posted of a deer kill.

Show me. Don't tell me. I've never seen a Bigfoot photo that wasn't pretty obviously a fake.

I have have posted some before on a CD. Go back and find them. You just nailed it.As i said before. Why post anything and get laughed at? You haven't even seen one yet and already call it fake.

I don't have to show you anything. Obviously you have never been out and tried to find anything ever.
Get away from the computer and get some real experience and then spout off.

Do you know what the STENCH is? How about X's and Bows?

Oh, take a chill pill. Just post the links. I won't laugh. I may not be convinced, but I am genuinely curious.

Consider this. Mountain gorillas aren't exactly populous. For years, colonial Europeans scoffed at the natives' tales of jungle beasts, thinking it savage superstition. Then they investigated and found them. That's the key: They investigated and found them. People have been investigating Bigfoot for 50 years or more and haven't found Sasquat.

Not one conclusive photograph. Not one conclusive footprint. Not one corpse. No piles of Bigfoot poo. Nothing. Every one that has undergone serious scientific scrutiny has been determined inconclusive at best, or an outright hoax.

If there was a healthy breeding population of large mammals in western North America, we'd have found them by now. It's REALLY hard for several hundred gigantic primates to hide in even remote areas, much less the highly populated American West.
