Someone eventually will bag a squatch (not that it hasn't already happened) and they will ignore pay-offs & threats by powers-that-be and go public with their trophy, parade it all over the country/science community/the world......what do y'all think will happen then? Will this create protections for Bigfoot? A free-for-all hunt? Projections???

Ah, a government conspiracy and cover-up.

“William James, father of American psychology, tells of meeting an old lady who told him the Earth rested on the back of a huge turtle. "But, my dear lady", Professor James asked, as politely as possible, "what holds up the turtle?" "Ah", she said, "that's easy. He is standing on the back of another turtle." "Oh, I see", said Professor James, still being polite. "But would you be so good as to tell me what holds up the second turtle?" "It's no use, Professor", said the old lady, realizing he was trying to lead her into a logical trap. "It's turtles-turtles-turtles, all the way!”

— from Wilson, R.A. (1983, 1997) Prometheus Rising. Phoenix, AZ: New Falcon Publishers, 1983.

I something think that in this forum, it's government conspiracies all the way down.

I don't know if it's govt conspiracies or not, obviously. But it's certainly possible. Do you have evidence to prove it's not?

Look....I totally *get* the need for scientific "body" proof, yada yada....I would believe beyond doubt with it, too, but would hate to think the critter died just to satisfy human curiosity. I'm not totally pro either way, but definitely lean away from killing BF to prove it exists. I'm just willing to keep my mind open to possibilities. And thus far, as skeptical as I am about no hardcore pathologic proof, I'm also just as skeptical how so many people could be having the same fantasy/nightmare/experience....especially people who want no recognition or fame for telling their story, they are just warning others. What do you s'pose makes them tick??? They KNOW they are going to be ridiculed endlessly.......

Now, why would the "govt" care if a BF was stomping around????

My theory is that Bigfoot is an Ancient Alien who was left behind after helping build the pyramids, and his people only left him with a small electronic device that allows him to detect and avoid trap cameras.

How is this thread different from I think I've been converted..... a new "bigfoot" thread? Or to paraphrase what we say on Pesach, "wherefore is this thread different from any other thread"?
