Bigfoot Lives!

Ok, I actually don’t know if Bigfoot exists or not, but, like Fox Mulder from the X-Files, “I want to believe.” And I’m not the only one. Even though some Bigfoot sightings have been proven to be hoaxs, people continue to believe and look for the real Bigfoot.

The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization claims to be “the only scientific research organization exploring the bigfoot/sasquatch mystery.” Their website includes a comprehensive sightings database, where you can search Canada and the US for reports of Bigfoot sightings. Other websites describe sightings as well.

Despite the lack of concrete evidence of this creatures existance, many people still believe and hope to find this potential primate relative. There are myths of Bigfoot-like creatures all over the world, just like there are myths of “little people” around the world, and recent evidence has shown that “homo floresiensis,” a small homind, in fact did exist simulataneously with modern humans. So why not Bigfoot?
