Is Sasquatch a "Missing Link"?

Image
Over the years, many people have speculated about Sasquatch as some kind of missing link in the evolutionary history of human beings. Certainly at first glance this may seem quite plausible considering what most of us were taught in school growing up.


However, over the past ten or twenty years there have been many archaeological discoveries, both quite legitimate and quite controversial in their mainstream context. We have learned that Homo sapiens lived alongside numerous other hominid species - even having cross-bred with those such as Neanderthal peoples. The appearance date of what we know as the modern day human is continually being pushed back further and further. And with this, we are not merely talking decades or even centuries. It is now believed in many academic circles that Homo sapiens first appeared more than 300,000 years ago. Take a moment to let that sink in. It's difficult for us to imagine the passing of even 100 years, even as we tend to measure such things by …

My latest drawing is......BIGFOOT

It took me awhile and some promises of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but I finally got the big guy to sit still for a drawing. I'm still wondering how this did not come out blurry...
Anyway, hope everyone digs it!

The Bigfoot Book: The Encyclopedia of Sasquatch, Yeti and Cryptid Primates

Image
Nick Redfern is a prolific writer in the paranormal/supernatural/crypto/UFO genres and he has done an excellent job in a book called The Bigfoot Book: The Encyclopedia of Sasquatch, Yeti and Cryptid Primates. One of his more recent books, published about seven months ago, it covers the Big Guy in an encyclopedic reference. It not only documents Bigfoot, Sasquatch, etc., but many other primate-like cryptids and strange homonids. Below is the description for The Bigfoot Book: The Encyclopedia of Sasquatch, Yeti and Cryptid Primates:

"Does a hulking, hairy, 800-pound, nine-foot-tall, elusive primate roam the woods and forests throughout North America—and the world? What should we make of the grainy videos and photos and the thousands of eyewitness reports? Audio-recordings exist purporting to be the creatures’ eerie chatter and bone-chilling screaming. Whether called Sasquatch, Yeti, Bigfoot, or something else, bipedal primates appear in folklore, legends, and eyewitness accounts in…

ALERT!!! US Government Declaring All Out War on Tiny House Living

PLEASE READ. VERY IMPORTANT FOR MYSELF AND MANY OTHERS!

Written by Isaac Davis, Staff
Waking Times

Freedom in the United States today is a moving target, and when the government catches wind of an innovation that makes life easier and more affordable for ordinary people, it always steps in to take control. Take, for example, the growing effort to outlaw offgrid living in the U.S., as well as moves by local governments around the country to criminalize private rainwater collection. Now, the federal government is making a major move against the tiny house movement, seeking to give the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) authority to require tiny houses to conform to the standards of recreational vehicles (RV’s), of which one of the rules is that the vehicles may not be used or marketed for permanent living. HUD is seeking to regulate tiny house living out of existence or to turn it into a regulated industry by requiring that tiny homes be manufactured in factories, c…

Something In The Woods

Image
While I have not yet been able to watch this movie, Something In The Woods looks to be a Bigfoot movie worth checking out. At first I was slightly disappointed that it was a PG rating expecting it was going to be a horror movie, but then I came to my senses and realized that this is inspired by a true event in the 60's and that most real world Sasquatch encounters aren't R-rated. They might be scary or frightening but usually nobody gets mauled and skewered on a pine tree. So I reevaluated my stance in approaching this movie and now it seems to me that it may portray a highly realistic characterization of a Bigfoot encounter. With that in mind, here's the synopsis provided on SITW website:
"An independent feature film inspired by true events. The story follows the Hartman family and their dealings with a legendary creature when it begins coming around their farm house deep in the woods in the late 1960s."
According to the IMDb, the inspiration for the movie comes …
