Hey folks! Heather here! Our resident Bigfoot expert, Shawn, is back! Enjoy his most recent post!
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. – Bertrand Russell
Hey there people in internet land! I am back from another exciting (yup, that’s my story) Sasquatch adventure. While I had a rather awesome time in the woods and had some activity and strange and interesting experiences, I cannot introduce you to the big man himself. Yet. I have previously written about the potential of Sasquatch’s existence here on this blog and have pontificated and postulated on some history and scientific data (or lack thereof) to the potential anthropological ancestry. This is all well and good and can be quite thought-provoking, as well. But, let’s face it folks, this is a rather limited topic, regulated to the fringe “pseudoscience” of cryptozoology. There just isn’t that much out there as compared to other, more accepted, mainstream science branches. One has to dig through pages of book lists, reviews, excerpts chosen to entice you to buy a book, self-proclaimed professionals and expert witness testimony, just to find one tidbit of potentially helpful information. And if you find that video on YouTube, recorded by someone at a conference that falls outside of accepted science, the comment section is full of mockery, derision, and name-calling. All because someone has a different interpretation of the “facts.”
Ancient Egypt. Galileo. Vikings. Prehistoric America. Now, what the hell do they have to do with Sasquatch? Everything and nothing. Now that you are quite possibly confused more than ever, let me explain. Ancient Egypt is the first civilization (4,500 years ago) to have built monuments. Nope. Not quite. Geologists show pictures of rock structures from the Giza Plateau (unbeknownst to them) are asked to ballpark date them based on visible weathering marks. They all date them to well into the 10,000 to 15,000 age bracket. Right up until they are shown that what they were dating was the Sphinx. All of a sudden, they are no longer experts, not sure of the number they just threw out or they get angry and throw a temper tantrum. Last time Egypt was a fertile water-soaked environment was well over 15,000 years ago. Allegedly. So that would mean the Sphinx is a tad bit older than that to account for all the wind/water erosion seen on it, right? Galileo was ostracized and spent a majority of his adult life under house arrest by the Spanish Inquisition for heresy to the church for his scientific observations and theories, all of which have been proven true and correct. That could be why they named four of Jupiter’s moons after him. As well they should since he discovered them! Not to mention he championed the heliocentric solar system theory. Now, he is considered the father of science. Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492. And discovered America first, right? Wrong. Actually, Native Americans of the Pre-Columbian era of Folsom and Clovis people discovered it 12,000 years ago, but that is an insignificant little fact. Especially when you consider all the archaeological evidence to the contrary. Like Viking artifacts, money and graves that put them here almost 1,000 years before Columbus. More and more Viking artifacts are being found to contradict Columbus’s claim to the New World, but yet it is all labeled as fake or reproduction and even strange but inconclusive (look up “out-of-place and time” artifacts). And now pre-history! Almost all your higher institutions of learning are just that. Institutions. Where they instruct you what their version of the truth is and nothing else is possible. They will scoff and sneer at one who thinks outside “the textbook of truth because we say it is.” Oops. My bad. I don’t believe you because you say so. How many times have we been “institutionalized,” I mean “taught,” something just to have it updated and revised? There is a reason for the saying History is written by the conquerors. We are taught that Clovis man cam here across a land bridge 12,000 years ago. If that is so, why is there a plethora of “forbidden archaeology” links, stories, reports, etc., that keep coming up with Homo Sapien Sapiens (modern man – that’s us) evidence of our existence throughout the geological record of up to 250 millions years ago? Look it up. It’s there.
Whew! That was a lot of typing and varied topics to get to this. Why is the existence of Sasquatch so belittled? Why is it so improbably that it could actually be real that modern science excludes any serious interest in the subject. Modern science has been proven incorrect so many times, yet still we cling to their institutionalized, regimented rote memorization of the “facts.” I go way into the woods. WAY into the woods. Far from other people (I hope) and at night I act like a completely deranged weirdo. No, seriously, I do. And I have friends with me doing the same. All in the hopes of the possibility of what could be out there. Other than bears, wolves, coyotes, and mountain lions (a.k.a. The Scary Stuff). Why do I do it? Well, for one, it’s fun. And two, because some really strange things have happened. Responses to my activity that can only be duplicated by a bipedal, opposable thumb-having, upright-walking… something. Whether that is some other completely deranged weirdo hoping that my actions are a squatch responding to him, OR it is Sasquatch himself (or herself – whatever) is why I do it. That, and the satisfaction in the deepest fiber of my being that I was right, that they do exist, and if that is true, what else are “they” lying to us about? On to the Fibonacci Spiral. Oh, and being able to tell all the pompous, ignorant people (I personally know some) who think they are so much smarter than people like me by their sarcasm and condescension without any personal knowledge (just the institutions’ force-fed knowledge), “Neener neener neener! You’re a…”
