Psychology in bigfooting – FEAR

There is an adage that comes up regularly in bigfooting… “When you look for bigfoot, you find yourself.” The longer I pursue this subject, the more truth I find in that statement. Human psychology plays a pivotal role in our interaction with this subject. (Once again, I find myself staring at a blinking cursor, trying to figure out how to address a topic that is too complex for a single blog post. This will most likely develop into another one of those multi-part blog series.)

Today, I want to talk about fear.

Local Residents Spot Bigfoot In West Virginia… and 2012

Happy Holidays!

A recent sighting report in an article written, for a change, factually and not in a tongue-in-cheek manner. Bless those in the media who write news as news and not as sensationalistic commentary.

Local Residents Spot Bigfoot In West Virginia

The following is unrelated to bigfoot… I think… but it’s another interest of mine so I thought I’d share. I’ve been reading quite a bit about 2012 lately. ‘Tis the season, after all.

This webpage from NASA is interesting. It discusses the science behind the internet sensationalism surrounding December 21, 2012 that has been increasing in the past few years.

Big Hairy Anecdotal Evidence

Sasquatches are hairy. Each and every bigfoot book – including those by highly-regarded scientists who’ve entered the fray – tells us  so. There is, however, currently not one shred of falsifiable, scientific proof that it is so. There’s plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest such, but no proof.

Anecdotal evidence is been defined as “non-scientific observations or studies, which do not provide proof but may assist research efforts, usually made by observers who are not scientifically trained”.

We accept the “fact” that Sasquatches are hairy, despite the fact that it is not, in fact, a fact based on any scientific evidence but rather anecdotal evidence.

We Stand For Sasquatch

I wanted to take a moment, before I begin today’s post, to express gratitude to each of you and thank you for the time you take to read this blog and to offer your thoughtful commentary. I also want to thank everyone who has submitted a “Stand for Sasquatch” profile. It may seem a small thing we’re doing here, but even pebbles make a ripple.

Also, a special thank you to Oregon Bigfoot member Bill O. for your generous donation to The Arbor Day Foundation on behalf of our Stand for Sasquatch awareness campaign. Thanks to you and our other match partners Tom and Sali, you’ve really helped our forest grow. When we stand together, we really can make a difference.

Am I the only one…

…who is disturbed by the increasingly frequent use of the term “squatch”?

It’s important to me to write this post carefully. Words have enormous power. They can be used to inspire, to amuse, to hurt, to heal, to educate. They allow us share ideas and – like it or not – they affect perception. The latter, perhaps, is the biggest reason I cringe every time someone utters the word “squatch”.

Please Stand For Sasquatch

It has long been the goal of the Oregon Bigfoot community to raise awareness about Sasquatch. However, it has not been our goal to simply raise awareness that Bigfoot exists; the purpose behind this website and everything we do is to attempt to understand who or what they are, to share what information we can as responsibly as we can in order to not compromise them in the process, and to help instill compassion and a desire to truly protect them – from us – in our readers.

“It really creeped me out…”

FEATURED OREGON BIGFOOT REPORT #05583

[As always, witness name and contact information is kept confidential]

The following report was submitted to Oregon Bigfoot on 10/17/11. The witness states that his sighting occurred in Macon County, NC, nearest town Highlands, near Highway 64 on August 05, 1995. It was late afternoon, 5 p.m., and the witness was in between Cliffside Recreation Area and Bridal [Veil] Falls. The boulder at the scene was fairly distinct as none of the others were even half its size. There was one witness, 29 years old at the time.

Bigfoot loves blueberry bagels and other news

There has been a veritable glut of bigfoot-related articles in the news lately. From a Michigan report of a long-term witness feeding a Bigfoot family, to searches for the Yeti and Orang Pendek… here are 20+ recent news items you may have missed.

Generally, the only sport you’ll catch me watching is UFC. I admit it. I like it. Maybe it’s because there are so few rules and it’s easy to follow. Of course, I liked it better when there were fewer rules, when the winner went straight on to the next fight, when the fighters rarely cross-trained… and when Royce Gracie was allowed to wrap his prehensile toes into the chain-link of the octagon and wriggle out of a full guard.

Melba Ketchum 2011 Bigfoot DNA Study

For those who haven’t heard the news, there is a comprehensive Bigfoot DNA study being conducted by Melba Ketchum, et al., and word has it that the results, after what has been a long wait, will officially be made public sometime soon.

I have been following this closely and will attempt to give you a rundown here of the timeline of events thus far. From here on out, while I’ll do my best to keep you updated via this blog, I will also have a web page dedicated to this (as I did the Georgia Bigfoot Hoax) that you can check back on periodically for updates if you miss anything. That page is:

Huh?

This blurb from The Register Citizen, a newspaper “serving Litchfield, CT”, really had me scratching my head.

It was posted in amongst a bunch of other junk. I guess it’s along the lines of a letter to the editor.

Again… HUH?

Is Yeti back?

The reports and witness accounts of the presence of Yeti in Torrington are growing. It is most likely Sasquatch, or Bigfoot as it is more commonly known.

The Yeti or Abominable Snowman is allegedly an ape-like cryptid said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet.

Bigfoot have mastered concealment in the forests.

New information on James Rosick photograph – Updated 9/14/09

jimmah01_enhRecently, I’d posted about this photo on the Oregonbigfoot.com website. It was intriguing as far as Blobsquatches go (at least it didn’t need to be circled… *grin*), but I didn’t have a lot of information about it.

Yesterday, I received the following email:

Autumn,

Please acknowledge receipt of this message by return email. I realize I do not have your direct email address and hope this reaches you.

See http://www.dailymotion.com/related/x5tdlr_in-the-know-episode-2_webcam/video/x4jxaf_lasalle-falls-picture_tech for a brief video summary of our organization’s investigation into the James Rosick photo posted on your main web page.

Want to be in a bigfoot movie?

Our investigator, Felicia Bryant, sent me this from Craigslist. Sounds like they’ve already hired the Sasquatch. *grin*

Bigfoot Film (Medford/Ashland)

We are shooting a movie Sept. 28-October 4 2009 here in the Rogue Valley. The film is called “The True Believers” and is about two brothers from Mississippi who come through Oregon in search of Sasquatch. We need to cast extras and actors for some small to medium sized roles.

We are looking for middle aged to older individuals who have had an actual experience in which they saw Big Foot.

Bigfoot “spotted” at Ross Island

[Editor’s note: This article made absolutely NO sense to me at first, because there was no photo or video attached. I finally found another article about it with a photo. Apparently, there is a faux-fur covered “bigfoot” statue on Ross Island… no one knows who built it, but it was first spotted over Labor Day weekend.]

PORTLAND, Ore. — For decades we’ve trekked the depths of our world’s forests following sightings and reports of a giant beast; part ape, part human. Now the trek ends here.
