Why Bigfoot is More Real Than You Think
Try to talk about Bigfoot to some of your friends and you'll be mocked and laughed at. The simple truth is no one is going to listen to a word you have to say, unless you mean it. Sit there with a straight face and they will be filled with intrigue. "How can someone ACTUALLY believe in Bigfoot?" It is actually very easy to see why Bigfoot could exist. Here are a few of those reasons:
1. The woods are much more waste then we care to think.
There is still hundreds of thousands of forests and wilderness left in the United States. Now people make the argument that this land is all been surveyed or hiked but this could not be farther from the truth. Hikers rarely go off the trail, and if they do it isn't for more than a mile or two. It would be relatively easy for a small population of bipedal apes, or humanoids, to stay undetected in the wilderness.
2. "How come a body has never been found?"
As a hunter, I know how efficient nature is at getting rid of itself. I have been a deer hunter for over 7 years and i can count on my hand the number of times I have seen a deer carcass in the woods. There are millions of deer in every state, so how can this be the case? Firstly, when an animal dies its carcass is immediately eaten by scavengers. Next, rodents will chew on the bone for calcium and more. Weathering takes its tole on the bones and they often lose color and strength. Bones will decompose in the soil, especially if it is acidic (Pacific Northwest, i.e. BIGFOOT TERRITORY). Now, when we look at the existence of bigfoot and it comes done to a few thousand of them scattered across the country at most, then it is easy to see that your odds of walking across a bigfoot carcass are as slim as it gets, and that is assuming that they do not bury their dead.
3. "We would have found one by now."
This is a rather stupid argument that often gets brought up. The reasoning is being that if something has not been discovered by now, then it never will be. This is just simply wrong and I do not need to tell you why.
4. Where is the evidence?
People will say that there is no evidence to support it. But there have been hair samples, footprints, videos and sightings of the beast. TO date none of this evidence has been accepted by science, but that does not mean it one day will not be.
5. Bigfoot is a hoax
It is no secret that hoaxing is a big issue in the bigfoot community, but that does not discredit ever single piece of evidence. If there are a 1000 sightings and 999 of those are discredited due to mistaken identity, hoaxing, lying, hallucinations etc, it does still not discredit that 1 sighting which is genuine.
The point of this article is not to convince you that bigfoot does exist, but rather to open you up to the idea that it COULD exist. Next time when bigfoot is brought up and your first reaction is to scoff it off as trash, remember this article.
