William, I know him only thru the BFF forum. I had seen him at the Ohio conference from a distance but we've not met. I think he also spoke about his sighting at a conference or maybe more than one? I dunno.

I didn't come here to try to prove to everyone that Bigfoot exists. It seems every member tries to pull me into a "display the evidence" demand. I know people are hungry for evidence but I'd simply like to read and post without the drama.

It's going to be impossible to eliminate the drama. You already knew that and didn't hope that it would somehow be different with you. That's why you brought your boxing gloves.

I do have a few concerns with the film. The "diaper butt" is not one of them.
The link below is a pic of a gorilla that someone added a football to.
I think it serves as an example that a "big booty" may not be uncommon to large primates.

Why are you forced to show a picture of a zoo gorilla instead of pictures of several different Bigfoots other than Patty?

Actually, gorillas have no butt to speak of. It's a small flat pad (callous). You might want to check on the photo you presented to see if a big butt was Photoshopped onto the back end.

If I see a hairy big booty gal when I get back in the woods I'll do my best to take a comparison pic. But until then I think it's noteworthy that some primates when stooped over have a big butt.

So you have ceased making serious points. Good luck with your imaginary bigfoots. Bye.

Would you let me get away with saying that I know there are wild moose on my property in central NC? Or would you want evidence?

If I presented similar photos to yours, and told you I saw moose in them, would that satisfy you? Would you then agree that there are wild moose on my land?

Believers have nothing but their belief. Is my belief in the moose enough for you to pay me for a moose hunt on my land?

The gorilla is not standing fully erect but it is on a photo shop site and has been tampered with. Here's one that's a little better.

Dafydd, I don't wanna take us too far off topic as I don't want to discuss or defend the P/G film at length here. Photos like these are just some of the reasons I don't see a problem with an oversize butt on a large primate, especially one that has adapted to bipedal locomotion.

Sure, education about how to play the bigfoot game. The game needs "educated" players to survive.

Indeed. I hadn't given bigfoot much thought until about the past year and upon delving into the belief system, what passes for science, and what passes for logic for many believers seemed to nearly exactly mirror what I had noted in the paranormal community. Lots of stories but not much in the way of hard evidence. What separated the two, at least inititally for me, was the possibility of such a creature's existence. Then, I began to read what enthusiasts claimed as prime bigfoot habitat (nearly everywhere, just take a gander at the BFRO database) and how the creature uses that habitat and I just said no. Not without leaving sign, lots of it. And of course, not without a body collected somewhere, some time, and likely again, lots of them.

It was an education.

Chris show one standing erect like Patty. Show what the butt looks like when a gorilla pulls a Patty move.

Given the non-existence of these ridiculous monkey thingies that you're pretending to have encountered it's a pretty safe bet.

No.

The odds of sighting a bigfeet - anywhere, ever - are infinity to zero against, regardless of random weight changing phenomena besetting the observers.

This KY place certainly sounds . . . interesting.

Are you aware of any similar areas on this planet?

Moose investigation. OK, If you tell me you have Moose on your land in NC. I'd want to question you about your sighting. Try to determine if it could be mistaken identity. If there is evidence available, I'd want to review it. If you show me a blurry photo or video of something that resembles a Moose my curiosity may be triggered. If I came there and saw Moose tracks, my suspicion would be raised. If I had my own sighting, I'm all in, yep you got a Moose in NC. Who knows how it got there but it was there.

Money also has alot to do with an investigation too IMO. By saying upfront you want to start receiving money from hopeful moose hunters, that's an alarm bell, money is a red flag.

If I'm not trying to talk you into Bigfoot, why do you insist on trying to talk me out of Bigfoot?

Because "into Bigfoot" is a sad waste of a life and "out of Bigfoot" is a step on the path to enlightenment.

If you had never seen moose tracks before how would you know they were moose tracks? And if you had never seen a moose and there are no clear pictures of a moose how could you be sure what you sighted was a moose?

The point of the scenario is that I am presenting exactly what you are presenting, except for moose in NC vs bigfoot in KY.

Few people would accept what I say. Few people would believe that I got within 51 feet of a moose and only got the sort of pictures you've got. Scientists wouldn't rush in to check out my claim. They wouldn't believe that the Moose left no sign other than a few tracks.

There is absolutely no way you can have 10 foot tall bipeds roaming around near you and you can't provide anything more than a very poor photo. A photo in which no one but you can see anything remarkable.

There's no way any rational, objective person would believe you.

A 10 foot tall bigfoot couldn't hide from you, or from anyone, or from any camera in the vicinity.

The point of the scenario is that I am presenting exactly what you are presenting, except for moose in NC vs bigfoot in KY.

Few people would accept what I say. Few people would believe that I got within 51 feet of a moose and only got the sort of pictures you've got. Scientists wouldn't rush in to check out my claim. They wouldn't believe that the Moose left no sign other than a few tracks.

There is absolutely no way you can have 10 foot tall bipeds roaming around near you and you can't provide anything more than a very poor photo. A photo in which no one but you can see anything remarkable.

There's no way any rational, objective person would believe you.

A 10 foot tall bigfoot couldn't hide from you, or from anyone, or from any camera in the vicinity.
Ah and once again the lecture to deny Bigfoot. I get it, you don't think they exist. Good for you. But they do.

Then get a decent picture the next time one is 50 feet away from you...

This is a skeptic board.

I'm trying to help you.

If it means speaking frankly to you, so be it.

I don't think I have ever been anything other than civil to you.

Let me guess, you didn't notice the bigfoot until you reviewed the video?

Busted, I guess.





I thought you said you were from the planet KY.
No that's where the jelly comes from.

Exactly.

Whilst I find it disappointing that we still get no evidence but yet get many claims, I would like to pay tribute to Chris' calm and polite manner on here. This has been exemplary.

It'd be great if you could now find something exemplary to back up your assertions, Chris.

Chris, I'm not saying you are in need of medical help. I'm not saying you are lying. I am saying that you can't come on here and say they exist, "they do", without providing some evidence. Do you realize how silly it is, to say an animal 10-12' tall is lurking about in semi-rural counties in Kentucky? Think carefully about what you are saying. You are saying that you can drive somewhere, park your car in a parking lot, walk for an hour on a trail, and run into creatures that are 10-12' tall, yet you can't get a clear photograph of one. That is extremely silly.
