    If Bigfoot were real, wouldn't we have found some bones, some hair, some DNA, some Bigfoot poop or some real video evidence to support it?  I watched the show Finding Bigfoot on Animal Planet and laughed my arse off.  It was total comedy watching adults trying to "call" Bigfoot in the middle of the forest at night.  Total comedy.

    I want to believe, but I just can't. 
    What are your thoughts?

      Anything is possible. I believe in the possibility of Bigfoot in one of the other billions of planets in the universe maybe.

      Perhaps we might find the spaghetti monster in one of our neighbor galaxies.

        Don't go too far out into outer space looking for the big footed Sasquatch. We human do not even know most of what going on this 1% earth mass that runs 6 km deep. Even police can only find a bucket of cannabis in the sea of green pot and it’s illegal in every country in the world.

        Maybe the Sasquatches are master at hiding and human are very very stupid at trying to find them. Look how long it took them to find Osama bin Laden ( if they have really found him) They described him as 6 feet 6 inches tall and I might have seen him at the post office in Belize a few years back.

    I know for a fact that Bigfoot is real. I've seen Bigfoot several times at monster truck rallies. He's a big Ford truck and can smash junk yard cars.

    Theres alot out there that we'll never see so its possible! Also if theres only a few around and they cover lots of ground in a short time we may never find them. If you wanted to go of the grid wouldnt it be hard for people to find you! Or if you knew you had to keep yourself hidden to survive wouldnt you do so?

      Yeah, but at least maybe a bone would surface somewhere.  But then again, Bigfoots or Bigfeet (not sure how they pluralize themselves), may be masters of postmortem bone destruction.  I guess that's plausible.

    Considering not every inch of Earth has been scoured with a fine tooth comb, then I would say that the possibility exists. However, I hold no belief either way. I just understand that the possibility exists. wink

    maybe he is real...and maybe he is a Hubber that we have been talking to all along!?

    I found this avatar in my followers group...very suspicious!

    Considering that Bigfoot is depicted as a tall, upright ape I would say it's quite possible. Such a creature certainly fits into our Earthly framework of evolution. Having not found one yet that proves its existence shouldn't be too surprising though. We didn't know what gorillas were until about 1900. Until then we only knew of Congolese tribesmen talking about the ferocious beast man who stalks the jungle. And considering such a creature would live very remote from human civilization, I definitely think the existence of Bigfoot is possible or even plausible.

      Yeah, but if the BFRO can't find them with "scientists" named Moneymaker and Bobo Fey, who would ever be able to find them?  I fear there is no hope.

    The thing about Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster etc being real-if they are  then someone  will hunt and kill them to put up on their wall to show the world how  big a man whey are.

    People always want to believe on the extraordinary. That's why ghosts, loch ness, bigfoot etc. are such big topics even in our modernized world.

    If you look at the facts, there is a huge possibility that there are some strange, mutated gorillaz or monkeys out there that can be called "bigfoots". But a creature that seems to have been made up for storytelling; probably is just that and nothing more.

      Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is an ape-like cryptid that purportedly inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America and I live in the thick of it in BC.

      I have a friend who has written many leading books about sasquatch and travels all around the world checking out evident of those sasquatch sighting. He has collected 1000s of footprints yet still no physical body has been found.

      He always corrects me when I say Bigfoot, its Sasquatch. By now, I think it's as much possible and has not been disproven any more or less than the topic of God or life on other planets.

        After seeing the movie Harry and the Hendersons, I always wanted a big foot. But, I think that it is all a myth.

          Aaahhh!!! I wanted one too!

          Maybe the real one's could eat your face off, if you did not know how to handle him or her..

        @castlepaloma: your friend has yet to find any physical evidence?  what does he write about in his books, the "footprints"?  This has always confused me about the search for Bigfoot, no one has ever found any physical evidence.  Maybe we should hire David Caruso from CSI Miami, he seems to solve every crime within an hour.

          This Man is age 90 and has achieved many great things in his lifetime, and he is honest as the days are long.  Most people think his Sasquatch search is just too crazy for him, Yet I think heard too many real life like stories from him about the Sasquatch and from so many other people too to doubt it that much.

            I'm not discounting the man.  I'm just curious, what has he found, other than footprints, that makes him believe it's real?

              One story he told me was about a village in Russia where the entire village had seen this 4'5'' sasquatch being fed by an old lady and for many years.  I wonder why a hunter did not bag the sasquatch or kill such a creature for living room mantel.

              He got dozens of wild stories like that one and there worldwide. I have not caught him bs-ing about anything yet and I have worked with him on other huge projects with him.

    cooldad-you might want to read a recent  hub by Patty Inglish that looks at  whether the legend of Bigfoot started from the Squamish  Natives who were seven feet tall and had lots of body hair. I can't remember the URL, but if you go to her profile and put in "Bigfoot" in the search engine, it will come up.

    I'm keeping an open mind. The Patterson film is the most compelling evidence I've seen. I've read a lot of scientific analyses of the film and have watched it numerous times. The obvious working muscles seem impossible to fake. Some of the footprints that have dermal ridges would be hard to fake, too.

    It wouldn't be possible for such an animal to hide themselves so completely.  None of the other primates in the world do.  So why would this particular creature be so elusive?  I think such creatures are created because of man's need for mystery.  Even if such a creature were discovered, this would result in the loss of a good mystery, so much better for the believers, that he is not found.
