Bigfoot | Is the Monster Real or a Hoax?

Updated on July 21, 2015

Does Bigfoot Exist, or Is Bigfoot a Hoax?

For decades, there has been some debate as to whether Bigfoot is real. A huge, ape-like creature that roams the Pacific Northwest, Bigfoot has been sighted by native Americans as early as the 1850s. Today, average citizens, as well as policemen and other officials claim to have seen him.

While there are photos and videos of Bigfoot, they are extremely fuzzy. How is it that a game camera can take sharp photos & videos of other wild animals like deer and mountain lions, but fail to get good ones of Bigfoot? I doubt that he can move faster than one of those!

My belief is that while there may have been an ape-like beast like Bigfoot thousands of years ago, he simply doesn't exist today. So my position is that Bigfoot is a hoax - just another monster story to scare little kids and naive adults.

So what do you think? - Does Bigfoot exist?

I've told you my opinion about the existence of Bigfoot. Here is your opportunity to share yours. Do you believe that Bigfoot is real? Is Bigfoot an actual beast that not only roamed the world thousands of years ago, but is still in existence?

Or, is Bigfoot is a myth and a hoax? To people who enjoy believing in monsters and aliens, is this just another story to tell around a campfire?

State your case here!

This is an open debate and all comments are welcome. Please note: This is a g-rated site and any posts with profanity or lewd comments will be deleted immediately.

Bigfoot is a Hoax - And these websites agree

I've read a lot of articles on Bigfoot, and found that quite a few of them agree with me. Bigfoot is simply a hoax, or practical joke... or is he? Follow these links to see what others have to say:

MonsterQuest TV Show - Did they prove Bigfoot is real?

This is the entire show on Bigfoot, so it is a bit long. I saw this episode when it first aired, and found it to be quite interesting. Will it change the way you think about Bigfoot?

If Bigfoot is real, can he dance?

This video is totally unrelated to Bigfoot, but I thought of him when I saw this. If Bigfoot is real, do you think he can dance like this?

      Very interesting lens. I believe Bigfoot is a hoax.

      A really interesting lens. I don't know if these "monsters" are real, faked or just imagined.

      I hope it's real but the evidence is not quite there yet.

      Someday someone will find proof and then the doubters will have to believe.

      I think it's fun to wonder whether it is real. I believe that people believe that they saw something, clues are compelling enough.

      I believe that Bigfoot is actually a very large animal who's appearance has been vastly exaggerated and who gets bigger and scarier with time.

      The bigfoot legend lacks credible scientific data. I would be open to peer-reviewed scientific evidence but fuzzy pictures and stories don't do much for me.

      I have lenses about a kind of Vampire / Werewolf and a lens about Baby Monsters. Well regarding Big Foot, I have watched a lot of documentaries regarding this. Even though they sometimes prove that this is just a hoax, I think it will be cool if a real one exist!

      Don't see why there couldn't be one. I'm pretty open minded about these things. Another great article! :)

      I think it's *possible* that there are Bigfoot-like creatures out there, but I think some, if not all, of the recorded sightings are hoaxes.

      For some reason I couldn't post in the debate module. Anyway, I've seem many shows about Big Foot, none of which ever proved to me conclusivley that he/she exists. So, I'de have to say that Big Foot is a hoax. Good topic. :)

      I think they are all based on a bit of fact, but for the most part, aren't real.
