The Mystery of Bigfoot: Fact or Fiction?

Updated on October 11, 2014

Anatomy of Bigfoot

People who have witnessed Bigfoot claim this animal is very tall than humans ranging from a height of seven to fifteen feet. The face of a Bigfoot has been described to be a cross between a gorilla and a human being. This animal (or human?) is mostly covered with long hairs which are reddish-brown. Some reports pointed out this creature had a bad odor while others refuted by stating they didn’t smell any bad odor from these creatures.

Is this animal intelligent like gorillas and humans? Some eyewitness reports suggested they did not have a clear idea whether this animal was intelligent though there are some who implied from the behaviors of Bigfoot they witnessed, they seem to possess intelligence. An example is of some eyewitnesses who reported to have seen several Bigfoot also known as Sasquatch communicating to each other.

The creature is said to be benign, shy and cautious of humans. No report has denoted of an attack by Sasquatch meaning they don’t mean any harm to humans, unless of course they feel threatened (my assumptions). However, Bigfoot seems interested in watching the activities of humans from a distance then disappears deep into the woods which is their habitats.

Several people have pointed out hearing of weird noises of Sasquatch from the woods and Himalaya Mountains. Some had gone as far as to record the noises. Whether they are made up or true we shall never know. Their noises are described as howling, gurgling or grunting. Whether they speak to each other in audible language, I am not sure whether we shall ever know.

What turns out to be astonishing is many of these people didn’t feel afraid of these creatures.

Theories of Bigfoot Existence

The first theory tries to show this creature provides a link between gorillas and humans and might explain, well, the evolution.

This creature is traced back to nine millions ago to a primate called giganthropithicus of which scientists believe Bigfoot originated from. The closest living relative of this long-deceased creature which was far away larger than gorilla is orangutans.

Orangutans are different compared to other primates. They are loners and gather together to reproduce. They are very widespread that sighting them is not easy. As is the case with Sasquatch, the orangutans are covered with reddish-brown hair. They make occasional howling noises that are loud though they are usually not vocal like chimpanzees. They possess high intelligence and are very curious to watch the activities of humans.

This would indicate Sasquatch are intelligent and prefer to be alone and their habitats are deep in the woods. It might be with the case of orangutans they come together for reproduction business then each goes its way to live as a loner. This might explain why sighting them is not frequent and why skeleton evidence has never been gathered.

I do not believe humans evolved from gorillas. Neither do I believe Bigfoot is a cross between gorillas and humans even though they share the characteristics.

The following are two Biblical stories which point out to the big bodies of these creatures of which I prefer to call humans for they are humans, and possibly provide evidence to the existence of them - why they live in solitary and their body largely covered with hair.

The first mention of giants is in the Book of Genesis. These giants, known as ‘Nephilim’ came into existence as a result of the celestial beings – angels, doing sex with daughters of the earth thereby impregnating them.

Do you believe the existence of Bigfoot is a hoax?

See results

Nephilim means Giants from which comes the root word ‘Naphar’ translated to ‘fallen ones.’ These angels who went against God’s rule to be involved in sexual intercourse with earthly women resulted to off springs who were giants. These giants were violent and involved in behaviors which led to God’s anger culminating to flood which killed all living creatures not in Noah’s ark. Only Noah and his children, and the animals in the ark were saved.

However, later when Israelites were rescued from the oppressive hands of Egypt by God through Moses, they were promised a land by God in which they will dwell called Canaan. Canaan was a land they were promised that flows with milk and honey. Nearing Canaan Moses sent spies to find out more about this land. Most of those in this spy group were astonished to see giants who were supposed to have been killed in the floods. Where did they come from?

Some theorize one of Noah’s sons’ wives was impregnated by one of these giants thereby carrying the genes of giants. Another explanation is celestial beings continued to get into sexual intercourse with the women of the world. However in the Book of Jude it s stated clearly the ‘fallen ones’ are bound on earth until judgment day or the end of the world. This theory and explanations are not plausible for the Bible does not offer indication these giants were hairy.

I believe this third theory is a plausible one.

Rebekah, Isaac’s wife gave birth to two sons, Esau and Jacob. The Bible clearly notes the first son to come out of Rebeka’s womb was red and his whole body was covered with hair.

Inside her womb, Rebekah felt the two twins struggling. She wondered what was happening in the womb and asked the Lord. The Lord replied one would be stronger indicating Esau and the older shall serve the younger one indicating Esau will serve Jacob. This happened in their adulthood when Esau sold his birthright to Esau for red stew since he was very hungry. The Lord pointed out there will be two nations that will spring from the womb and they will be rivals.

Esau was a man in the field while his younger brother lived in the tents. Jacob had smooth skin like the rest of us humans though this was not the case with Esau whose body was covered with thick hair like a garment.

Like I stated before I believe Bigfoot are humans and have a history like the rest of us if it sounds plausible.

Genesis 25: 19-26 (New Living Translation)

The Births of Esau and Jacob

19 This is the account of the family of Isaac, the son of Abraham. 20 When Isaac was forty years old, he married Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramean from Paddan-aram and the sister of Laban the Aramean.

21 Isaac pleaded with the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was unable to have children. The Lord answered Isaac’s prayer, and Rebekah became pregnant with twins. 22 But the two children struggled with each other in her womb. So she went to ask the Lord about it. “Why is this happening to me?” she asked.

23 And the Lord told her, “The sons in your womb will become two nations. From the very beginning, the two nations will be rivals. One nation will be stronger than the other; and your older son will serve your younger son.”

24 And when the time came to give birth, Rebekah discovered that she did indeed have twins! 25 The first one was very red at birth and covered with thick hair like a fur coat. So they named him Esau.[b]26 Then the other twin was born with his hand grasping Esau’s heel. So they named him Jacob.[c] Isaac was sixty years old when the twins were born.
