April 16th, 2013

There are reports that a Texas group has managed to sequence the Genome of Bigfoot. Before we get out too far in front of this story, there are some things to consider.

Sasquatch – Fringe Science or Hokey Myth?

August 29th, 2012

Anyone who is anyone living in this country has heard of Bigfoot or Sasquatch. If you have all those nature channels through Cable-TV.com, then odds are you have seen a special or two. Just what is Bigfoot? Is he a myth or is he part of some kind of science we are only just beginning to understand.

Proponents for the theory that he is nothing more than a myth cite some of the most obvious evidence being that there just isn’t any proof of his existence. Bears crap in the woods, deer mark trees with their antlers and wolves howl, but no one has yet to find any authentic evidence of Sasquatch.

That’s where fringe (pseudo) science comes into play. Fringe scientists and proponents of this theory believe that the reason we haven’t found any evidence of Sasquatch is that everything about him exists in a dimension that our five-sense-oriented brains simply cannot perceive. Because he exists in a realm beyond our comprehension, we only really see him in chance encounters.

Whatever Sasquatch actually is – be he myth or some kind of anomalous entity – one thing remains: our love and intrigue regarding this strange and mysterious creature. We will never stop looking.
