Proved my point...

Plate tectonics and atoms used to be a thing of pseudoscience, the laughing stock of the science community.

Sure, why not?

It wasn't an obligation to post in this thread at all. Why aren't you addressing all those points I made directly in response to your posts then? It does make one wonder. You were interested enough in this topic to post those things, but suddenly lost interest when those posts were addressed?

Not really (and definitely not to the same degree as Bigfoot and elves). But they were accepted once supported by evidence. Fairies, etc have yet to be supported by evidence. That's the difference.

Used to be, until sufficient evidence was brought forth, something you've yet to do. Just like innocent until proven guilty, I subscribe to the false until demonstrated convincingly valid idea.

Are you kidding me? Do you have any idea how difficult it was to prove the existence of atoms without the technology readily available? We're talking about a theory that was originally postulated 2000+ years ago and wasn't quite understood until Dalton came and proposed the Atomic theory. Even then it had to endure scrutiny.

There are evidence supporting Bigfoot just not the tangible kind. Do you think people from different cultures and different parts of the world came together one day and decided to carry out arguably the biggest prank of all time - the Bigfoot phenomenon?

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'm not suggesting Bigfoot is real but keep an open mind. The magnitude of witnesses from all over the world is simply to great to say that the Bigfoot phenomenon is make-believe. Disparaging such a notion and comparing it to elves, unicorns, and phoenixes is just plain ignorant.

I'm not the scientist here... You are (Supposedly)... We await the truth from smarties like yourself. Till then I'm fine with my own conclusions thumb.gif

Replace UFO with whatever myth you want.

Arguing a fallacy is always an interesting and often opinionated discussion. Most people on the forum can agree, yes keep an open mind, and if one chooses to explore the "evidence" with an unbiased or better said analytical point of view, that's even better.

I didn't want to quote your entire post, but your general consensus is correct, in my opinion. However without looking at Bigfoot sites for "actual" (I use the term loosely) statistics of state by state sightings, I believe WA has the highest # of sightings, CA, and OR probably up within the top 5 as well.

That said I can assure you IF Bigfoot exists, they could survive / sustain in localized environments, such as the Olympic Peninsula, or the Cascades. I say that with over 20 years of experience in these types of environments.

I'm not saying all reported sightings are that way, I think looking at the phenomenon with an analytical view is needed.

Most sightings are probably like UFO sightings, 95% can be explained, but the 5% cannot be "disproved" - that doesn't mean it's aliens or Bigfoot, it means our current methods / "experts" (another loose term) cannot disprove the evidence presented.

the classic null hypothesis.

If you postulate the theory or claim that it's true well then it's up to you do to the research, You may believe whatever you want for as long as you want but if you can't cite any reputable sources and/or (In this case and) present relevant arguments in a relevant way you can't brand what you "believe" as a product of conclusion.
If you want you beliefs to be recognized as a relevant conclusion you will have to use proper citation. Any theory that won't be subjected to rewiew is inherently faulty and false.

And I feel that that's what the thread is about, unjustifiable, irrelevant, nonscientific belief draped in a labcoat.

With all the early american legends of bigfoot-like beings not to mention humans drove the north american giant sloths to extinction way before our time, I believe there could of been an animal like this in the not too distant past, just saying... wink.gif
