Undebunking Bigfoot - Permanent Top Post

Best Evidence & Content that Counters Pseudo-Skepticism Regarding the Topic of Sasquatch
Dame Jane Morris Goodall, DBE (born Valerie Jane Morris-Goodall on 3 April 1934) is a British primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, and UN Messenger of Peace Considered to be the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees, Goodall is best known for her 45-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania. She is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and has worked extensively on conservation and animal welfare issues. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Goodall

On Friday, September 27, 2002, during National Public Radio's (NPR) Talk of the Nation: Science Friday with Ira Flatow, Dr. Jane Goodall made a striking comment on her strong beliefs that large "undiscovered" primates, such as the Yeti or Sasquatch, do indeed exist. - Transcript of Dr. Jane Goodall's Comments on NPR Regarding Sasquatch
The mission of this site is to provide content that counters pseudo-skepticism regarding the topic of Bigfoot, or Sasquatch if you rather. Content that provides what we find to be the most impeccable evidence in general will also be posted. On that note, for essential reading on this topic we recommend, "Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science," by Dr. Jeff Meldrum.
Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum is a professor of anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University, where he teaches human anatomy in the health professions programs, evolution, and primate studies. His diverse research interests encompass the evolution of human walking. - http://archive.coasttocoastam.com/guests/1267.html
The book is an extension of an equally highly-recommended documentary by the same name.

Also be sure to check out these excellent documentaries by National Geographic and the History Channel. These three programs have a lot of overlapping information, but each has many worthy unique aspects as well.

 

The work of Cliff Barackman from The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization and the television show Finding Bigfoot is also a must on the subject. And last but certainly not least, visit The Relict Hominoid Inquiry of Idaho State University, a journal providing "scholarly peer-reviewed papers exploring and evaluating the possible existence and nature of relict hominoid species around the world." - http://www.isu.edu/rhi/index.shtml

Send comments to adg3510@gmail.com. If you'd like to submit a comment or article for us to consider posting, please just let us know and we'll surely publish it if we find it's in line with our stated mission above. We'd love to hear from anybody who has had a Bigfoot sighting in our home state of Pennsylvania. Please also consider sending us an email if you're an investigator in Pennsylvania and might be interested in sharing information or collaborating on some field research projects.

On the Track of Unknown Animals
 is a cryptozoological book by the Belgian-French zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans that was first published in 1955 under the title Sur la Piste des Bêtes Ignorées.

Bizarre Blob Found in BC Lagoon


An odd-looking blob creature was recently discovered living in a lagoon at a park in British Columbia.
The gelatinous oddity was spotted in shallow water at an area of Vancouver's Stanley Park appropriately known as the 'Lost Lagoon.'
An examination by an ecologist identified the strange blob as a bryozoan, which is a collection of tiny microorganisms which join together to form the gooey orb as a form of protection against predators.
Although residents living nearby may rest easy knowing that the blob is not an interstellar species planning a takeover of Canada, the bryozoan may actually represent an invader, of sorts.
That's because this type of fresh water bryozoan has only been seen in one other part of British Columbia before and never in the aquatic ecosystem of Stanley Park.
Scientists suggest that warming temperatures in the region have made it more hospitable to the blobs, which led them to seemingly spread into the area.
Experts did not express much concern that they will have much impact on the wildlife at the park, since the blobs have probably been there for a while and were only just noticed for the first time recently.
Nonetheless, should the creatures wind up wreaking havoc on Stanley Park, at least they've got a perfect title for a film about it: 'Creature from the Lost Lagoon.'
