I watched a program on the History channel that seems to indicate that the famous Patterson-Gimlin film footage of the Bigfoot creature was not faked. Each frame of the 16mm film was digitally photographed under a microscope. As a result, the enhanced images show the creature open its mouth, and blink its eyes and make expressions common in primates.

Do you think it is possible that such a creature can live in remote wilderness areas without being detected by science?

I saw that program.
(The history channel rocks!) head banger

Actually, I didn't find the evidence all that compelling. It looked to darn blurry up that close.
But I never disbelieved in big foot in the first place. He might be real.
I have no reason to think he's not.
The guy's partner was so nonchalant about the whole thing that he seems like ........ like it must be true.

No one can argue that the film isn't blurry. It is a grainy 16mm image shot in 1967. But the digital enhancement does show details that are not apparent in prior attempts to enhance the image quality. These details seem quite compelling. I had always assumed the film a hoax, I even saw testimony of someone claiming to be the person in the "ape suit". No way I buy that story now.

In 90's a Dutch primatologist searched the Amazon rainforest of Brazil in search of a specific new species of monkey that had been reported. Anlong the way he found four previously unknown species of monkeys, and a new species of porcupine.

Gorillas have been reported as early as 2,500 years ago by Phoenician merchants from Carthage. The natives called them hairy people. The earliest Westen Science to report gorillas was in 1876. And, despite centuries of reports, the Mountain gorilla evaded science until the 1950's.

It seems plausible that other wildlife could do the same. Especially since science is so eager to dismiss "bigfoot".

Yes I believe that is is possibe and probable, Just becaus we don't see it , doesn't mean it isn't true. I saw the documentary also. Saw a documentary on a child who grew up in the wild---didn't even know how to speak and acted like an animal.professor

Could one exist without us finding them?? The answer is YES. Mythology in Viet Nam spoke of a Gilled Deer, but modern science said this was not possible.
The deer "Pseudoryx nghetinhensis" was discovered in Viet Nam.

It's definately a possability as far as I'm concerned. There are may documented cases of species that were thought to be extinct, yet they were not. They just were not seen. Problably the most famous is the coelacanths. Thought to be extinct some 80 million years ago, but alive and well. Bigfoot could very well be just as elusive.

Yes, Bigfoot does exist. Once on a fishing trip in a remote area, he stole my lucky rabbit's foot while I was asleep on the shore. Been trying to get the drop on him ever since.

I saw him on TV, too. He was doing a beef jerky commercial, I think. Couldn't see if he had my rabbit's foot. He's probably hiding out where no one will ever find him. My guess would be a condo in L.A.

But all kidding aside, there are many things we have yet to discover. I see strange things all the time in my travels. Most are without explanation. When it comes right down to it, we are not the most observant of God's creatures. I think a mamoth could be living right under our noses without being detected! How many of you have seen me in the woods? See what I mean?

uh oh

One if not 2 books written by a British Columbia Zoologist and forensic expert on all accumulated evidence and have said that in their scientific evaluations, the Bigfoot creature is definitely real. The books are loaded with the tests run, results, analysis and photos taken of the creatures, prints, feces, fur etc.
The main areas of sightings are the upper northwest: Washington, Oregon and British Columbia,Canada, particularly in the rain forests.

I've seen a bunch of shows on tv bout bigfoot. And 1 of these shows the reporter or whatever describes that it would be extremely hard to live in the woods with climate changes throughout the seasons, which makes sense unless someone sees it in an area of the world without much climate change. Also they go on to say bigfoot is of course enormous; so how would he maintain eating a huge substantial amount of food to survive. I don't think it exists!...u never see bigfoot with a bow n' arrow or some shit strapped to his back to catch a decent size meal! Come on bigfoot!? No way!
