I posted this topic before but it was deleted so I'm going to post it again.I want to list some of the weird things bigfoot has been seen doing or in connection with.I know these things are going to make the flesh and blood people just cringe but unfortunately these types of reports exist.I want to say that I believe these kinds of reports and that they aren't hoaxes or outright lies.These kinds of reports comefrom credible individuals from various backgrounds ranging from hunters to military personnel.Here we go.

1.Bigfoot and ufo/cattle mutilation cases are documented.With over 100 ufo cases coming from the state of Pennslyvania in 1973 alone.

2.Poltergeist activity and tricks being played on humans in immediate vicinity of bigfoot activity.

3.Reports of bigfoot sliding or gliding above the ground

4.Reports by Native Americans of bigfoot walking several inches above the ground and disappearing into thin air in front of hunters and mutiple eyewitnesses.

5.Internal glow or bioluminescence emanating from the eyes in sometimes near total darkness.

6.No primate has a three,four,or six-toed foot as bigfoot does.All primates have five toes.

7.Forest rangers training in the Washington/Tacoma area in the 70s reported a game of hide and seek with the creatures with the dinstinct impression that bigfoot could become invisible and see in near total darkness.Cattle mutilations were reported in the area as well.

8.Over 50 shooting cases with many of them from point blank range with little to no effect on the creature.

9.Reported to attain and maintain groundspeeds of 40 to 60 mph.

10.Tracks that start or stop out of no where and where they should not be

Some other things are bigfoot being seen in connection with strange underground machinery noises,weird sky phenomena,orbs,and causing radio vehicle interference.Also there is ghostly or apparitional looking bigfoot,shapeshifting,passing through solid objects and the creature being visible to some but invisible to others in the same group.

This is to administration and mods.Please do not merge this topic with another.This a seperate,distinct topic that I definitely want everyone to see.Thank you.

Never knew Bigfoot was associated with almost everything paranormal. At some point you gotta know a lot of those accounts are far fetched, and probably not even close to being true. There is more physical evidence to back up the existence, there is very little than supposed eye witness acounts to back up anything paranormal. I'm not saying there are not strange and paranormal things going, i just don't believe it with bigfoot.

Nysro,there are even researchers that have experienced some of those things so I certainly believe there is some truth to them.

Many in flesh and blood camp make statements like yours because such evidence challenges your belief system and contradicts with your personal view that bigfoot is just a physical creature.Open-mindedness is need to consider these things which is what the BFRO and most bigfoot organizations don't have.

I was deer hunting years ago, sitting off in the woods a bit and watching the end of an open bottom area that was a popular travel route for Whitetails. It was full daylight when a doe stepped out into the open, walked part way across and kept turning around, as if another deer was behind her. So I stopped watching her and focused my attention on the place she had appeared from.
About 30 seconds later, there he was, a beautiful buck, standing a good twenty feet out in the open spot. I never saw him walk out, and only remember being shocked that he suddenly just 'appeared'. It was very weird, and to this day I cannot understand or explain why I didn't see that deer step out of the woods. I had not once taken my eyes off of the spot, and was no more than 75 yards from it.
Okay, that's my Paranormal Whitetail story.

My point is only that creatures who have to survive in the woods have a knack for making themselves 'invisible' to us. My guess is that the Big Guy is wired this way, too, but even more so.

There is a video in the Photo-Audio-video- sound forum that shows a video of a grayish bigfoot filmed through the brush. I can't remember which post it is, but the Bigfoot seems to be moving as if on a Nordic ski, so graceful.

It seems to me that numbers 3,4,7,9 and 10 all fall within the range of effects evoked by an extremely secretive,agile,intelligent and nocturnal animal.(especially if observed for the first time,from a distance or in less then optimal conditions) This could be aided by ultrasound as some have suggested..

Earlier this year two of us were on a logger road and had stopped because of a gate about 40yds in front of us.
We were both looking right at the gate and for several seconds when I blurted out "holy s#@t! there's a moose standing right there!"
We were looking right at it and both of us didn't even see it. It was standing right there in the open on the opposite side of the gate looking at us.
Did it just appear? No. The eyes don't always see what's right in front of us.

Funny you should bring this topic up and I’m glad I checked in because I’ve been thinking about this same thing all day. Not that I’m jumping on the shapeshifting bandwagon but it certainly would explain all the unanswered questions most of us have about Bigfoot. I know there’s at least one Bigfoot out there so I will keep my mind open to the possibility that shapeshifting could be a real phenomenon.

'Evidence That Bigfoot Is Paranormal'

I dunno...to me the words Paranormal and evidence are mutually exclusive. I just can't buy the paranormal premise.

From personal experience I able to say that seeing an impossibility is quite shocking. I saw two while I was driving through a suburb and only really came back to myself forty miles away, with no memory of the interim. I wasn't hit by a beam or controlled from afar. I was just shocked.

The most complex thing we know is the human brain, of which we know very little. Stress affects us and the brain has tricks it uses to survive. I have seen reports made by truthful men with integrity that absolutely oppose the actual events. Yet, these men can pass lie-detector tests and calmly recount the events as they saw them. This led me to believe that they told the truth. The stress of the situation caused them to perceive it within the parameters they were able to accept. They weren't lying. They would not. Yet, their experience of the events was different from what occoured.

I think it is easier to accept that extraordinary claims are the result of stress in extraordinary circumstance than other less common explanations.

Here are two more things

At reputed bigfoot kills,only the liver was taken and rest of the meat totally ignored.Much too small an amount to sustain such a massive creature.

There are also reports of bigfoot communicating telepathically.There is a member that says he communicates with them in this manner on a regular basis.

6) Results of inbreeding?

8) First they have to have been hit, second they can very well go off and die somewhere else.... A number of reports of BF screaming in pain when shot. Also, blood trails found.


I suspect that a number of these could apply to any secretive animal as well.

Ok here goes....as much as I'm interested in your topic you have cited no stories/reports ect. You are totally depending on your readers to have seen some of the same material you have to support your point of view. This is hardly fair to new members. Also just because another member has made a statement true to them, does not make it true for everyone.
While I respect your opinion, this isn't the way to make a systematic case for your point of view.
1) No reference materials
2) No sourses

So far it's been nothing but your word that BF's are both paranormal & intangable. It's time to provide some evidence in support of these statements.

I also will respectfully ask you have you had your own experiences with BF that lead you to conclude it is of paranormal origin? There is a section in Sightings for members to report sightings and have no questions asked, in case you were unaware of it. Just scroll down. As always no one ever has to reply or reveal more info than they choose regarding questions.
I'm merely asking as an interested member.

One of the most insightful things I've read in quite a while. I had to give you a +1 for that!

It is only by being critical of the evidence that we retain any credibility.

"Once we rule out the impossible, whatever is left, however improbable, must be the truth"-Sherlock Holmes

I am skeptical to the point that I scrutinize all of the evidence to rule out every possible known creature, human causes, natural causes, and potential hoaxes before I ascribe something to BF, and though I would like BF to exist, my world will not fall apart if it does not exist. I will merely have met some wonderful folks, read some great stories, and explored some beautiful country!

I like this video because of the multiple samples of eyeglow or shine. They are consistent with those of the Kentucky Land of the Lakes BFRO filming. What is interesting is the what sometimes seems like independent flashing or glowing of each eye in a way that is almost like a cop cars sequential headlight flashes.

This is way beyond the eyeshine encounter that I experienced in size and intensity.....of course I got to see pretty green eyeshine so that was rather novel as well.

Paranormal? Man that's sooooo 1970's. Selling paranormal in general is a tough sell. Selling Bigfoot is a tougher sell. Selling paranormal Bigfoot is about as tough as tough gets. I can barely buy normal Bigfoot anymore. But paranormal won't get me past what you see me doing right now. Sorry.

So rather than looking up the voluminous information available on the mineral & vitamin concentrations in organ meat and pondering that a potentially higher-functioning primate might need to supplement its regular diet with such things, you just jump to paranormal?

This is called making the data fit your conclusion.

Am I paranormal because sometimes, at the KFC buffet, all I eat are the fried chicken livers?

And, what GrayJay said - one person's unverified claims of telepathic communication with bigfoot bears zero weight in an objective appraisal of evidence in support of a paranormal bigfoot. Especially when that person believes another person on the forum is a Government and/or Big Lumber mole when that person most definitely is not.

Now, you could say then that it is "he said/she said" and that the jury is then still out on the whole "mole" thing. But if you do so, you then invalidate the one tenuous example of a telepathic bigfoot you have thus far given.

You set the bar too high. You simply cannot prove what you believe. It is impossible to do so.

The most you could reasonably hope for is to encourage faith in support of your belief.
