Searching for Bigfoot is Bigfoot in the Bible?
Cain or Esau...What do you think?
I have read it all now...Bigfoot is claimed to be Cain!
I was talking to my husband about his research with Bigfoot when he showed me an article he found. (I have eagerly named it Lielas Pedas Bipedal, meaning large bipedal foot.) The article suggested that Bigfoot was actually Cain from the bible. Proof to this could be found in a book called “The Journal of Mormon History”
I started at my husband in disbelief. Then I made him email me a copy of the story so I could read it myself.
The story states that a manuscript dating back to 1919 tells of a missionary being attacked by a huge hairy creature. The missionary claimed he drove the beast off in the name of Christ. This led to talk of another piece of the puzzle by another Mormon missionary named David W. Patten who had also encountered the Lielas Pedas in Tennessee in 1835. According to David Patten, the hairy creature wanders the Earth homeless, miserable, unable to die and seeks the souls of lost men. He too claims he rebuked the beast in the name of Christ, telling him to leave.
Supposedly this belief is derived of God telling Cain that his punishment for slaying his brother was to become a vagabond, a fugitive that shall wander the earth. Cain claimed that his punishment was greater than he could bear. He claimed that anyone that crossed his path would slay him. God placed upon Cain a mark that should anyone slay him, vengeance would be taken upon him sevenfold. (For more information on this look up Genesis 4:9-16)
This is where the wow factor for me came in. Cain is Bigfoot? A big hairy beast? Hmm, I think upon a closer look into the bible, one would come to think that Esau fit the description better than Cain.
Who was Esau?
Esau was the son of Isaac and the twin brother to Jacob. Isaac was the son of Abraham. Before Esau and Jacob were born, it was prophesied that the elder shall serve the younger. The Lord had told Rebekah that she was carrying twins; two nations and two manner of people. One shall be stronger than the other. When Esau was born, he came out red, like he was covered in a hairy garment. Jacob came next holding on the Esau's heel. Esau became a hunter while Jacob tended to the fields. Isaac favored Esau while Rebekah favored Jacob.
Here is the where the story gets interesting...
In those days, the eldest son inherited everything from the father. When it came time for Esau to claim his inheritance, he was tricked out of it by Jacob, with the help of Rebekah.
In order to pass Jacob off to his blind father as his brother, he was first covered in goat's skin and hair. Then his mother helped him cook up venison and lentils how his father liked it. When he confronted his father, he pretended to be Esau claiming Esau's birthright as his own. Esau distraught over the news cried to his father in a bitter cry and many claim that this is the sound that people hear when they are confronted by Bigfoot.
So, to make a long story a little shorter, there are scholars that believe that Bigfoot is human named Esau that began the bloodline of what we call Bigfoot. Esau was a mountain dweller that ate meat and lentils, crying a bitter cry. He had amazing strength, were tall and hairy, with a bad smell. Thus resembling an Ape. (For those that are curious for more information, the story of Esau and Jacob can be found in Genesis 25:20-30,34, Genesis 27:16,22-27)
I still sit here in awe...giggling....please tell me what you think...is Bigfoot a descendant of Cain or Esau? Or...none of the above...I really want to know what you think.
Do you think bigfoot is real or not? Listen to the video below to hear one man's story.
This is a video posted on YouTube by crypticmedia about a man calling 911 to report a bigfoot sighting. He is clearly distraught over what he is witnessing.
