Do you believe in Big Foot?

I believe in ghosts and UFOs but Big Foot I’m not to sure about. When I see my 6 1/2 foot tall neighbor walking up with a backpack full of beer I will yell “ Big Foot exists it’s heading this way and Big Foot drinks beer” Big Foot is walking by orders from his doctor but while drinking beer? Bigfoot has a wife that tells him walking while you drink beer gives you no benefit. But Big Foot does what Big Foot does because Big Foot is a Big Foot.
Anyways what is y’all’s take on Big Foot? Does this creature exist? Is it an unidentified primate? Or just a product of hallucinating substances? Or alcohol? Or do UFOs drop them off here for vacation?

this is proof Big Foot might exist

Pretty sure he lives on the lime kiln trail outside Granite Falls. It just keeps getting squatchier and squatchier the further you go.

Possible but unlikely.

In today’s age where everybody from a 5 yr. old to grandma is carrying a camera, you think there’d be more photographic evidence. Ditto physical in some form of bones or even hair remnants. Nothing.

And yet, a lot of people see a lot of weird stuff.

As far as cryptids go, the sasquatch/bigfoot/yeti is one of the least likely-- at least in the PNW--- due to reputed size and purely terrestrial nature.

Maybe he's in the middle of Russia, though. There are thousands of square miles essentially untouched by man.

Loch Ness Monster more possible, that's a really deep lake. Heck, even mermaids have a slim chance. Deep water is really good at keeping secrets.

But you cannot prove something doesn't exist-- so until evidence of Bigfoot is found, he exists in the same realm as Schroedinger's cat. He both is and isn't all at once.

For what it's worth, I don't think people appreciate how wild and untouched parts of the PNW are.

But not the sqatchy parts.

I believe there are "things" out there, that we humans have not yet discovered... not sure about Big Foot though. But as someone pointed out, there is a lot of unexplored PNW... and there is no wall at the Canadian border... so no telling how far and wide "something" might roam.

That we have not found bones yet, may simply mean... yet.

And no, cell phones have not yet recorded all the odd phenomena of this world.

I play paintball with him every few months. He is alive and well. Does electrical work as his main digs, part of the union and all. Those haircuts get expensive.

First of all no, I do not believe.

To add to the logic of the quote above... one would also think that sooner or later someone's house or cabin would be broken into for food and evidence would be left behind.

In Texas that is the Chupacabra it kills goats and livestock by literally sucking the blood out of them. They capture a Chupacabra and it was examined and found to be a mutated coyote with genetic defects so it exists but not in the way it is perceived. But don’t dispute this with old Mexican people you will offend them and they might be right. There may be Chupacabras around you just never know.

In Florida... Despite Blair Witch-style digital video footage of Florida’s answer to Bigfoot, experts remain dubious as to the existence of the rarely-sighted creature. That said it has 2.2 million acre area of swampland to roam in, giving it plenty of room to hide out from nosy investigators.

Sightings of the Skunk Ape tell terrifying tales of a large, foul-smelling, hairy, ape-like creature running upright on two legs.

Uh, that's just the typical "Floridaman..."

Do you guys know about the Pacific Northwest tree octopus? It lives in the Olympics and some westside Cascades rainforests.

Because if you're being logically consistent, and if every living thing that's died has a ghost running around, then there should be literally billions and billions and billions of ghosts. Think of the insect and spider ghosts!

And how come no one sees ghosts of extinct animals?

If you're cherry-picking humans, then there's a religious basis to your logic, which is all makey-uppey stuff... and there's your answer: they don't exist.

How about just a complex self aware brain sentient being aspect... and the typical tale that not all deaths lead to ghosts... just strange sudden deaths. Well, that takes care of all the billions of billions aspect. Can we have ghosts back now?

So no dolphin, ape... or dog or cat... has ever had a strange, sudden death? C'mon.

And shaping the narrative ("makey-uppey stuff") to suit your hypothesis? No, you can't have your ghosts back

Every year, thousands of people climb all of the 14ers, the highest peaks in Colorado.

Only 75 people have climbed all of the Bulgers, the 100 highest peaks in Washington.

The most direct route to complete the Bulger List involves 1,300 miles on foot, and close to 600,000 feet of ascent. Luahna is a 3 day approach if you're fast. Years go by without a visit from a human and most nearby peaks aren't so busy.

The Picket Range was a blank spot on the map until almost 1940. With names like Terror, Fury, and Despair, there aren't many people up there either.

The Cougar Traverse out in the Pasayten has been done exactly once.

This killing machine weighs about 4 pounds and is very gentle unless you are a mouse. This place is haunted by many a mice she has dispatched. Birds don’t fare much better. I need a local bruja aka old Mexican lady witch to get rid of the ghosts that pester me constantly.

Does she ever do out-of-state contract work? I've some chipmunks and a small groundhog that I'd rather be ghosts.
