why do people care about Bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster?

Updated on July 2, 2011

A guy in a suit...LOL

Bigfoot is fake,
Bigfoot is fake,
this photo is a hoax.
this photo is a hoax.

Why do people believe in Bigfoot or The Loch Ness Monster?

Let me make this clear to everyone, Big foot does not exist, nor does The Loch Ness Monster.

They are simply fables, or folklore but I have listed them under celebrities on Hubpages because they get a lot of fans around the world, fans who keep their story alive,but don't fool yourself into thinking they are real because they aren't.

I have a hard time understanding why people believe in bigfoot, It is so silly if Bigfoot was a real creature do you not think we would have found at least one body by now? or even a single piece of scientific evidence that there is a bigfoot.


OK now I am going to move on to the next ridiculous folklore The Loch Ness Monster....

Lurking deep down in the dark waters of Loch Ness they have found absolutely nothing that proves that a huge eel or fish exists, but wait there is that one photo above... I guess that proves it right there, that means there is a huge dinosaur fish, eel or something terrorizing the waters of Loch Ness.

When it was just a fake photo... did that every occur to anyone? In fact it was proven in 1994 that the picture was indeed a hoax.

Details of how the photo was accomplished were published in the 1999 book, Nessie – the Surgeon’s Photograph Exposed. Essentially, it was a toy submarine with a head and neck made of plastic wood built by Christian Spurling, the son-in-law of Marmaduke Wetherell, a big game hunter who had been publicly ridiculed in the Daily Mail the newspaper that employed him. Spurling claimed that to get revenge, Marmaduke Wetherell committed the hoax, with the help of Chris Spurling (a sculpture specialist), his son Ian Marmaduke, who bought the material for the fake Nessie, and Maurice Chambers (an insurance agent), who would call to ask surgeon Robert Kenneth Wilson to offer the pictures to the Daily Mail. The hoax story is disputed by Kenneth Bauer who claims this debunking is evidence of bias, and asks why the perpetrators did not reveal their plot earlier to embarrass the newspaper. He also claimed that plastic wood did not exist in 1934, although it was a popular DIY and modelling material in the early 1930s

Ok I hope I have not made anyone mad by publishing this hub I just want you all to know for sure that Bigfoot & The Loch Ness Monster do not exist.


I need 20 people to help me reach my dream.

    just because it does not exist, there's no evidence, and it's a silly idea to begin with doesn't mean people won't believe it. most people are bored. they have nothing to do with there lives.

    The most convincing thing to me that bigfoot is fake is that scientists say that in order for a species of that size to have survived so long it would need a pretty large breeding population. Plus, even though nobody has been able to conclusively prove the Patterson film of bigfoot fake, with all the cell phone cameras you'd think somebody would have got another good picture by now. There are lots of other reasons too but it is hard to convince somebody who believes in bigfoot. They want to believe!

    Hey Robephiles

    Thanks for the comment - It just seems logical to me that if bigfoot was out there someone would kill one or we would find a body, we have found dinosaurs from millions of years ago, but no bigfoot - yet there are weekly shows on TV like finding bigfoot - I don't know what to believe?

    But until one is found... I'm don't believe in bigfoot.

    I had a Professor in college who taught LOGIC of all subjects who believed in bigfoot. I had an argument with him about it once. It made me realize that even brillant people can sometimes be stupid.

    Thanks again for sharing such a great topic here. I have to believe now that all of this interest is indeed a very big lack of entertainment or excitement in people's lives any more today, somehow. They almost need to believe in these things just to keep things more fun. I kind of can understand that, so I too find it all pretty amusing actually, great Hub voted up and useful here again.

    I guess you have enough assurance in mankind that we've actually discovered all the secrets of this world. Must feel pretty good.

    Yes Valerie that was so funny, they froze a costume suit and had it sold for 60k of course when it thawed it was a fake, but what was really sad about that was one of the guys who sold the fake bigfoot was a sheriff in his town and yes he lost his job. Thanks for being the 1st to comment on this one, I;m like you I think it is funny

    I remember reading about Big Foot in a weekly reader when I was in elementary school. I am 59 years old now. If Big Foot were real, he's be dead by now. I had not heard about the other one, but do you remember the recent deal where the two men claimed to have found Big Foot, and had a custome stuffed in a box. The fact that such silly stuff is even news worthy only proves that people are spoiling for excitement. LOL. Thanks for the laugh.
