This thread isn't about Bigfoot?

The number of [ufo|nessie|bigfoot|chupacabra|etc] sightings is inversely proportional to the ubiquity of cameras.

As much as I hate the all-too-common internet pronouncement of 'pictures, or it didn't happen' I agree with infi on this one.

I have seen Bigfoot tracks and heard the screams/howls in the woods growing up. I have known a number of credible people who have seen or heard one as well. Sightings are not all that uncommon in this part of the country.

I have no doubt that they are out there.

Hey, most of you believe in angles and debils. You believe Jesus was born of a virgin and after he rose again with his body he walked through locked doors as though it were not there. You might believe in giants who are fallen spirits who bred with the sons of Adam before the great flood too. It's all relative folks, it's all relative. :wink: :lol:

I saw Bigfoot once! 1951. It made a sound that I would not want to hear twice in my life.

The Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp sounds plausible.
