Undebunking Bigfoot - Permanent Top Post

Best Evidence & Content that Counters Pseudo-Skepticism Regarding the Topic of Sasquatch

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

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.

Watch: Little Girl Films Bigfoot in Utah?





The seemingly endless stream of ambiguous Bigfoot videos appearing on the Internet has delivered a unique offering from Utah with a story that may be too good to be true.
Titled 'Bigfoot Sighting at Provo Airport," the footage was posted to YouTube at the start of the month by a user named Jane Everett.
According to the description, the brief video was filmed by Everett's daughter on her iPad as the family was en route to the airport.
Filming the sunset across a corn field out the window of the car , the little girl marvels at the view, but becomes startled around thirty seconds into the clip when a large, dark blur sweeps across the screen amidst the crops.
The child exclaims, "what was that" and then the footage ends seconds later.
Based on the title and Everett's own words in the video's description, she believes that her daughter inadvertently filmed Bigfoot lurking in a corn field near the Provo Airport.
A fantastic possibility, indeed, but there are elements of the video which suggest that may not be the case.
Casting aside its extremely ambiguous nature, there is little background information surrounding the video which is Jane Everett's only offering on YouTube.
Her misspelled declaration in the description that "Now i'm a beliver!" reads almost like something a sarcastic hoaxer would write to add insult to injury for Bigfoot enthusiasts.
To that end, the scenario of a little girl accidentally filming Bigfoot is the kind of tale that sparks the imagination and feels like an attempt at creating something viral, which clearly worked in our case, since we are telling you about it now.
Additionally, despite being written about in a Utah paper, there appears to be no follow up from Everett with more details on the alleged sighting.
Giving Everett the benefit of the doubt and presuming the video is 'on the level,' the possibility of the blur being Bigfoot remains fairly low.
While the 'creature' may appear to be running, this seems to be more of an illusion created by the traveling car, meaning that it could be any number of possible stationary objects and not an animal in motion.
All of these factors taken together leave the video lacking when it comes to the ultimate challenge of producing proof for the legendary and still-elusive Bigfoot.
But that doesn't mean we'll stop looking and hoping that the next tantalizing snippet of footage will be the one to finally capture the creature once and for all.
