Sorry Finding Bigfoot but It’s Over!

Published by under Uncategorized on November 4, 2016

8e5bb46cNot much to say except after our brief but thorough 5 year project to document any sasquatch activity, and finding none, the search should be called off. The amount and extent of hoaxing being done, particularly with footprints, leaves no doubt that a vast majority of bigfoot sightings can be attributed to the native bear population and inexperience with interpretation of native wildlife tracks in sand, mud and snow.

Prediction: No matter how many states or how many expeditions or how many episodes of the TV series, nothing but canine or human howls or owl hoots and knocks will be recorded.  It may be great fun, but the gig is over.  Way over.

Matt and Cliff your conclusions while sounding convincing to your own ears, are anything but to the world of science and have been for years.

More than a year ago, I suggested to Dr. Meldrum that he get together with Bill Munns  and vice-versa to discuss the possibility of looking at the P/G film from both a positive angle and a negative angle.  The thought was that the film and associated tracks/trackway provided both affirmative demonstration of the existence of an unclassified primate and quantifiable data that ruled out a mime in a suit (hoax).   It was the same thing but from both sides of the bigfoot “coin”.  Convincing arguments for the existence of a new species combined with convincing arguments that essentially ruled out a mime in a suit (hoax) provide compelling and overwhelming support that the subject in the film is indeed a subject worthy of serious scientific investigation.jeff-meldrum-inspects-casts2
On the positive or “heads” side Dr. Meldrum had demonstrated through his paper naming the tracks,  that the subject of the film had left impressions in the soil which could be classified using the science of ichnotaxonomy having a unique suite of characteristics unlike any known primate.  On the negative or “tails” side, Bill Munns had provided an analytical model, combined with his knowledge of Hollywood suit-making materials which could demonstrate the subject was outside the normal distribution for humans on several anatomical relationships and was clearly outside the probability of being a mime in a suit.

The two sides of the coin provide a compelling argument that some 42 years after-the-fact, the subject in the P/G film is most likely a real animal.  It is also likely that the animal is the creature many others have reported seeing, whose tracks, hair and scat have been collected and found to be inconsistent with any known primate.

While we still cannot objectively confirm its’ existence from a scientific perspective, we should realize we have more than adequate data to begin serious scientific debate among mainstream science.

New Monkey Species

Published by under Uncategorized on July 7, 2009

Reuters is reporting that the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is acknowledging the discovery of a new species of monkey in the remote part of the Amazon rain forest in Amazonas, Brazil.  The article mentions the small tamarin has been named Mura’s saddleback after the Mura Indian tribe of the Purus and Madeira river basins.


Mura's saddleback tamarin

It is 240 mm (9.4 inches) tall, colored gray and brown and weighs 213 grams (0.47 lb).  The tail is larger than the body at 320 mm or 12.6 inches.  Fabio Rohe, the lead author of the study confirming the new discovery was quoted in the Reuters article: “This newly described monkey shows that even today there are major wildlife discoveries to be made”.

Discoveries like this are probably not all that shocking to the average American today.  Finding a new small monkey in the deep forests of the Amazon may seem almost trite.  Considering the possibility of finding an eight (8) foot bipedal ape on the North American continent on the other hand must appear more like science fiction.

Yet, in spite of the near-ridiculuous notion of such a reality, there is mounting evidence for just such a shocking discovery.  Keep tuned in for information in the coming months about some new scientific data that begins to advance the possiblity of a new species of ape right here in the United States of America.

Beware Research Done in Secrecy

Published by under Uncategorized on May 20, 2009

Unlike Bill Munns openness of discovery and full disclosure of methods arriving at a potential conclusion, the breaking news hitting the streets is that a “missing link” or at times “the missing link” has been found.  It seems Norway’s Museum of Natural History has been hiding a fossil for several years now being billed by the likes of  Sir David Attenborough as the link that is no longer missing tying humans to other primates.


What is amusing is not so much the fossil – it is an amazing discovery.  It is the process of the study and conclusions about its significance.  Secretly studied according to news reports (see SkyNEWs for example), for two years it undergoes open discussion in of all places, the public and media.  A wonderfully preserved specimen indeed.  A wonderful example of a lemur.  The link that ties us to this? Somehow the evidence is simply in the eyes of the beholder.

The authors of the paper should take lessons from Mr. Munns.  If it really is what they claim, and there is news that one of the researchers has issues with the conclusions being promulgated, then let the evidence be subject to objective scrutiny.  The truth is, what we have is a fossil of an early lemur, a 47 millon year old lemur if you can accept the number, that appears but for some minor differences, much like modern lemurs.

Call me a skeptic, but I find the best science is the science done in the open, subjected to various tests and scrutiny minus the media and celebrities to over-hype the data.

Bill Munns has published his first preliminary summary of his work to date describing the construction of a 3-D model of the Patterson-Gimlin film site.  If his assumptions can be validated by appropriate experts and any flaws be worked out in the theory or data generated there is potential for some ground-breaking insight into this 42 year old film.

Stay tuned for more and see the Patterson-Gimlin tab above for the link to download a pdf of the report.

As many celebrate the anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birthday – this marks 200 years since his birth, the nation stands at a crossroads in acceptance of the implications of his interpretations of the myriad of mysteries discovered by him and his Beagle in the Galapagos so many years ago.

Before you dismiss this article as another religious viewpoint on the issue of how life originated on this planet, let me suggest that openness to scientific principles is not what has brought us to this point.  Recent trends in sociological patterns and cultural development seem to indicate that we are digressing as a result of anti-intellectualism where emotions rather than intellect tend to dominate and shape public policy.  I would say that we need a new renaissance to emerge, an enlightenment where decisions based on facts and solid foundations and goodwill among differing parties can occur.

For example, we are currently letting our elected officials battle for our very existence over whether we spend another $900 billion or so we don’t have at the same time attempting to support entitlement programs with an increasing elderly population and a decreasing working (taxable) population.  Irrational problem solving is prevailing in the clear face of our own destruction.

Similarly, we debate a whole host of items from a bully pulpit standpoint rather than a rational, logical thinking framework and then when one side doesn’t get their way, off to court it goes for a judge to decide. Emotions rule, logic is chucked out the window.  How else can you explain, regardless of your viewpoint, how a court could render a decision on the “right” of an individual to kill an unborn child when the clear unambiguous language of the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? (EDIT 4/11/09 – Ok so it is not the clear language of the Constitution, but rather the Declaration of Independence.  Nonetheless, the Constitution’s language is clearly on the side of the protection of innocent life).

It is no different when it comes to the issue of evolution.  Emotions rule not on both sides but on all sides because this is an issue that requires patience and persistence to understand what science has actually shown to be true and what implications these truths have in understanding the past.   Science has given us some extraordinary information regarding population changes and how natural selection plays a role in this, but contrary to what many experts may suggest on various sides of the debate, there is much to be tested, discovered and understood before a pronouncement is made to the likes of climate science where one man by fiat pronouncement renders a decision – “the science is settled”.

It ain’t settled folks.  And neither is bigfoot. We need clear thinking, rational and cordial dialogue amongst scientists of different persuasions and good science to guide us.  In the current atmosphere where the biggest, loudest voices dictate, this isn’t happening.  Pray for a change.  Real change.

Bigfoot Busters

Another mystery solved.  Another suit hoax – this time caught on a game cam.  There are numerous examples of hoaxes, almost no examples of real bigfoot.  I can’t go into details as I have signed a non-disclosure agreement regarding the photograph and its location, but I am at liberty to tell you that when things don’t add up, they don’t add for a good reason.  Someone is not telling all they know, or they are purposely misleading you or they have been misled.

Suit There is a fellow who posts numerous photographs shot at random (actually there are several people doing this) in areas where either sightings or other evidence has supposedly been collected and intimates that the shadows seen are actually juvenile and adult bigfoot.  There is another fellow who is using some of this information to produce a documentary further suggesting these illusions produced by the combination of  shadows and out of focus vegetation are bigfoots.  The first person I presume to not have a working knowledge of interpretation of photographic evidence; the second person, a college professor, should certainly know better.

I notice some people have a sort of laissez faire attitude about these folks and could care less whether the shadows are actual bigfoot or whether they are just shadows because to them it represents a diversion from the ordinary.  It becomes a source of entertainment much like the so-called mediums who rake in big bucks to make you think they are communicating with your lost loved ones by a trial and error guessing game where they use probability and genetic hints to their advantage (and to your disadvantage since they take your money and lie to you at the same time) and for your entertainment.

But no matter they say, truth and error are relative anyway.  So no harm done.  So they think.

I have yet to meet a person who is happier and better off after knowing he or she has been cheated.  But that is exactly what these frauds are doing by giving you an illusion of one thing when something else entirely is going on.  It is called taking advantage of someone by using their knowledge over your ignorance in a particular area.

Frauds, we should all expose them for who they are.  Harmless they are not.

As far as the game cam photo – that appears to have been some harmless fun probably by some courageous or drunken teenagers.   Harmless that time at least, since the guy or gal in the suit apparently wasn’t shot.  With all the bigfoot hunters out there these days, the next guy may not be so fortunate.

Significant Evidence

Published by under Uncategorized on December 15, 2008

Real animals give and sometimes leave evidence of their presence.  What evidence of supposed bigfoot activity does one expect?  The animal has not yet been classified by science, much less been given even a cursory outline of its natural history.  Its foraging, communicative and mating behaviour for example, is therefore undocumented.


There are numerous reports of loud screams, howls and other ape-like sounds associated with bigfoot encounters.  There are also reports of rock or wood throwing incidents and wood knocking.  There is however, at present no validated photographs or video of a large hairy, bipedal animal making sounds, throwing objects or using a club or stick to bang on a tree or anything else for that matter.

On the other hand, there are numerous examples of bigfoot encounters with physical evidence left in the form of a track or trackway.  Prints, in other words. Footprints. Large footprints. If you suspect an encounter or have been told of an encounter with a large hairy bipedal hominoid, one of the first signs you should look for are prints or other signs of its trackway.  Here is a story that involves the recording of a large hairy bipedal hominoid on surveillance video tape: Oklahoma Sasquatch Re-enactment For a complete account of the story see: Bipcast 4 Follow up investigations by a well known biologist studying the bigfoot phenomenon revealed large foot prints and a lengthy trackway in the immediate vicinity.  Further a “Class A” sighting occurred after flushing a hiding hominoid from its cover.

Whether real or not, the alleged story of the now missing surveillance tape of the assumed sasquatch was accompanied by other evidence of its presence including foot prints and a trackway.  Just what you would expect from a large bipedal hominoid.

Relationship Between Bin Laden and Bigfoot?

Published by under Uncategorized on November 13, 2008

If Osama bin Laden is alive as CIA chief Michael Hayden suggests in a report today on ABC News.com, what hard data does the government have to make this assertion?  Obviously, none of us common folk will be receiving that information even if it is available.  Most likely though, those assertions are based upon cryptic intelligence data that is anything but what many of us might consider hard data.

Source: ABC News.com

When was the last time Osama has been seen and confirmed to be alive?  Better yet.  Why hasn’t the U.S. or our allies captured or killed bin Laden in these seven (7) years since the events of September 11?  They don’t know where to look? They haven’t really been trying?  We don’t have enough troops?  We lack the technological sophistication or intelligence?  All of these, at least as explained by the U.S. government are not the answers.

So just what exactly is the obstacle that has frustrated the most technologically competent entity on the face of the planet for seven (7) whole years? Get this – “the rugged and inaccessible” terrain of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border area and get this – “the fact that bin Laden has worked to avoid detection”.

Now, assuming you believe this – and I have no good reason to doubt that it may in fact be true – is it so remarkable that there may be a creature who like bin Laden travels “rugged and inaccessible” areas and “works to avoid detection” such that it has remained unclassified to modern science?

As hard as bin Laden has been to flush out even with unprecedented technology, funding and skilled special forces, bigfoot is seemingly just as hard.  But really has there been anything close to a concerted, well equipped, well funded, adequately staffed, long term scientific research project conducted to prove its existence?  Is it any wonder, really, if a creature resides in places where most people don’t, is intelligent and skillful enough to see before being seen, and is deemed a scientific impossibility, that we haven’t yet captured our “man”?

Something to ponder.

New BF Footage – Thermal Imaginery

Published by under Uncategorized on September 21, 2008

There are claims being made of a bigfoot being captured with thermal imaginery in Wisconsin (BFRO Report #24265).  From screen shots being published on some well known bigfoot web sites, there appear to be no obvious indications that would lend credence to such a claim.  For example, the size of the subject is said to be around 5 feet in height – clearly in the range of the normal distribution of the population of juvenile or adult Homo sapiens.

Further, because of the distance from the thermal imager and vegetative cover hiding most of the figure, no details as to limb lengths or other features appear to be discernible which could be subject to various types of analysis.

Finally, an expert thermographer has done an initial analysis indicating that the subject is most likely a human (edited – with or) without clothes and is thus, clearly a hoax.  Is this surprising to anyone?

Example of Thermal Image Obtained from Google Search

But assuming there is more to the story which would provide additional data ruling out a human (edited – either clothed or) in his or her birthday suit, wouldn’t it be wise, given the current climate of the subject of bigfoot to hold one’s tongue until verifiable data would rule out the obvious?

If bigfoot “researchers” want to be taken seriously, they should at least provide enough data that could be independently verified by various experts in appropriate fields of study that could lend supportive or corroborative details, prior to the publishing of such claims.

Assuming media attention is the motive for making such premature claims, it is rather amazing that rigorous scrutiny and accompanying documentation remain absent. It is almost certain in this climate, barring that documention, that the obvious goal – media attention – will remain as elusive as the supposed juvenile sasquatch.  Fool me once shame on you…
