Why Bigfoot Can't Exist
Questions That Go Unanswered
Those who insist that Bigfoot is a real, living, breathing,creature always seem to ignore common sense questions and by ignoring the elephant in the room, they have created a perception that those who believe in Bigfoot are nothing more than daydreamers, who do not live in the real world with the rest of us. This perception whether fair or unfair has kept them in the minority and until logical answers are delivered, the minority they will remain.
The most obvious question would be why is every photograph or footage of Bigfoot blurry? As many times as this creature has supposedly been spotted wouldn't it make sense that someone would have been able to get an up close encounter with visual proof of its existence? In this day and age people masterfully take pictures and videos of their daily lives but can't seem to capture an eight-foot tall, hairy beast, without it looking like something a five year old would accidentally capture while trying to figure out how to use their parents new iPhone. Plus, we live in a society where most of us carry their phones on them 24/7 with the capability to snap a quick photo or video in a little over a second. Surely by now someone would have a reliable, form of photographic evidence if it did exist.
Another question that seems to elude Bigfoot hunters is how does an eight-foot tall, 800-900-pound creature not destroy its habitat along with everything in it. After all the calories it would need to sustain itself for one day would probably equal the same amount that humans consume in a week. For it to survive it would have to be a constant eating machine and if it was a predator the damage it would cause on the population of its prey would be astronomical. Which leads me to the next question. If this creature is as those who have seen it portray it to be, it would not be fast enough to catch prey. To move through the forest with such an enormous body would clearly frighten away anything in a mile radius and according to eye witnesses it also has an atrocious smell that would make it hard to sneak up on its prey.
Then there is the question of why has their never been a dead body found of the creature. Bigfoot hunters say that this is because other predators get to it before we do but if that was the case, how come do those who live in rural areas come across dead bodies of other creatures? Skeletal remains of such a large animal should be found on a daily basis, just as other skeletal remains are found on a daily basis.
Does Bigfoot Exist?
Should We Take Bigfoot Seriously?
Scientists seem to live in their own little bubble believing what they choose to believe, while disregarding differing pieces of evidence as hoaxes or flawed information. After all, any credible scientist would be risking his reputation if he kept an open mind on something like Bigfoot. Unfortunately, it seems today, that if something doesn't fit in their evolutionary theory, they almost always dismiss it and if that doesn't work, they run a smear campaign against anyone who supports the idea of it. One doesn't have to be a believer in Bigfoot, to believe that we all should have an open mind about things we can't rule out with 100% certainty. There are hundreds of sightings reported each year and to dismiss that there is a real possibility that most of these people saw exactly what they thought they saw would be of the utmost hubris. Instead, of blowing it off as pseudoscience, those in the scientific community should embrace the challenge of figuring out once and for all if there really is an unknown species lurking in the woods across the world. Sadly, since evolution has transformed into a religion, few will stray from its doctrine; making it almost impossible to discover new things outside the box from which most scientists now have their heads firmly planted.
I along with most people want to believe in Big Foot and while I have my doubts I will not dismiss it altogether. It would be foolish to do so. However, until I see actual proof of the creature I will continue watching shows like Finding Big Foot with a skeptical mind. Whether you believe that Big Foot exists or not one thing you have to admit that the entertainment value of the show is through the roof. Yes, it is absurd and at times mind numbingly idiotic but it sure beats watching 99.9% of the other reality show garbage that Hollywood dishes out on what appears to be a daily basis.
