    Here's a dwarf bigfoot, dressed as a bear, tricked into walking on two legs by a crafty camper using a balloon as a lure:

    My main reason for not believing in the existence of Big Foot, MR...is that wouldn't there be like thousands of these things roaming around, to the point where it'd be pretty hard for them to hide? The Big Foot thing has been lore for a very long time, surely by now, we'd all see one sooner or later. That's where my skepticism comes in.

    It becomes more feasible when you realize these are creatures that largely roam only at night and have evolved to hide from humans. Here's an index of sightings in the us. Who are we to dismiss all these sightings because we expect to have more of them?

    OK guys, let's cut back with the sharp wit and sarcasm - let's humor him with this. So long as he remains civil, I think we can all agree to do the same?

    How have they evolved to hide from humans? What traits would natural selection prefer to pass along to enable this goal?

    Why do they exist, though? Are they a mutation? I think that if we can't answer why something exists, it's hard (for me) to believe that it does exist. The only exception that I make is with the super natural realm, which requires faith. But, that's another story. lol

    But you can't understand why something exists or how it exists until you acknowledge that it DOES exist. Or at least be agnostic enough to take each sighting and case on an individual basis.

    Reasonable people. Humans have killed every animal we know about, and we can't kill a bigfoot? No way.

    IOW, if we haven't killed it yet, it doesn't exist. That doesn't follow at all..

    Yeah it does. It follows. Humans kill everything. No one killed a bigfoot. Therefore bigfoot don't exist.

    No it doesn't follow.

    “We show that even after 250 years of taxonomic classification, about 3050 amphibian and at least 160 land mammal species remain to be discovered and described,” the researchers write. They did not calculate estimations for other taxa."----https://news.mongabay.com/2011/05/3...overed-that-is-if-they-dont-go-extinct-first/

    So because we haven't killed these 160 land mammal species yet, they don't exist. Bullshit. Bigfoot remains an undiscovered species. There's absolutely no reason to expect us to have killed one of them

    Who eats amphibians? But a large mammal? Someone would have shot one by now.

    No..you have no evidence of anyone killing an undiscovered mammal species.

    And you have no evidence of Bigfoot being a real animal.

    Thousands of eyewitness accounts, video footage, photos, and DNA evidence say otherwise.

    What DNA evidence?

    The rest, anecdotes and photos, are possible to fake - so they're worthless for proving the existence of something thought not to exist. You keep ignoring that part as if it'll no longer be true if you ignore it hard enough.

    • Posting debunked informatioon while lecturing on rules about sources is rather quite inappropriate.
    You already know about the DNA evidence:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/27/bigfoot-dna-proves-creature-exists-genetic_n_2199984.html

    As for fakery, do you have some evidence for this claim? Remember, you need to support your claims with evidence:

    You need evidence that stories, photos, and videos are possible to fake? Are you a f**king serious?

    Oh wait, of course you are.

    So you have no evidence that they were faked? Tks for admitting that..

    Is it at all possible to make a fake video, photoshop a picture, or to invent a story?
