The same can be said of the gorilla. The locals knew about them though.

Just like the Native Americans (not Americanized ones) all know about bigfoot.

I think Bigfoot is just an old folk tale, just something to talk about around the camp fire to scare the kids, kind of like stories of werewolves, gargoyles, vampires, etc.

how come all the stuff that happened back in ancient times never happens now? no miracles, no signs?

You have read everything i have posted.Just because you and so many others will not get out of your comfort zone to find out for yourself and are naysayers it brings to mind this:"What does it matter what they say; they don't do anything anyway"?
These creatures don't give up their secrets for free. They rarely mess up. Arkansas,Tennessee,Kentucky,Missouri,Oklahoma,Loui sianan and eastern Texas have quite a few.

What ever this shakes out to be will be very interesting and this is no hoax.

I don't find that likely at all.
Such ideas are based upon the assumption that these animals are just like most other animals.
Perhaps these creatures are not susceptible to most contagious and lethal diseases. Perhaps they live for 300 years and only breed twice in a lifetime. Perhaps they do not have the metabolism that other animals have.
Perhaps they are careful enough to bury their feces and perhaps they eat their dead and bury the remains.

You have very good points.. They are here and they are real. I like fresh thoughts. Thinking out side the box ideas are needed. I like your metabolism idea. Do they only need to eat rarely and not like humans etc but like Gators etc? Humans us fire for heat,light,cooking basically. This creature does not.

Your arguments all boil down to, "Go find Bigfoot yourself." That's hardly a compelling argument. I can show you lots of evidence proving the existence of gorillas, orangutans, or even the super rare Amur leopard.

No one has ever managed to find so much as a scrap of credible evidence proving the existence of Bigfoot.

But neither is the forum "Yes Men Only."

Discussion means you're going to run in to disagreement now and then.
