I don't know if it's real in this specific photo, but I don't understand why people do not think big foot is real in general from a logical approach. Humans are too stupid & lack the creativity to make something up such as a big foot if it didn't already exist. Same goes for all other things. We are incapable as a species to creating something completely new that has not already existed at some point in time in some other location. Only God has the ability to create something completely new in this universe.
>>
>>30007934
>According to who?
Find an example of one from the 60's or even later. You'll have a hard time.

>Well yeah… it’s a costume
This comes back to the issue of the quality of the alleged costume. Because while proportions like that can be achieved with costume, the fluid and natural movement of the limbs and joints is rather more difficult.
Again, you'll find it challenging to point to a contemporary example of this quality.

>It’s just slightly hunched and overly swinging it’s arms? Hardly impossible
Gait is not just about a hunch a and swing. It's the way the limbs move in relation to each other and the body.
It's fine to be skeptical but don't make the mistake of straw manning the opposition.

>So?
So none of the parties that claimed to be involved in the alleged hoax were able to produce the costume seen on film nor even another costume of the same quality. This certainly doesn't prove that Patti wasn't a costume but it is a hole in the "it's a costume" case.

>So?
So the fact that the people claiming to have been involved in the alleged hoax cannot accurately relate details of the project puts in doubt the legitimacy of their claims, moving us necessarily toward the conclusion that no legitimate claim of hoax has yet been made.

>According to who?
Dr. Jeff Meldrum is a Full Professor of Anatomy & Anthropology at Idaho State University.

>“Dude I saw a giant monkey man” is hardly a detailed narrative to maintain

In order to achieve the abnormal arm length, extensions would be required, and extensions are easy to identify because they displace the elbow joint, moving it closer to the shoulder than the wrist. This is not the case with the subject of the PGF, as the elbow joint is located exactly where it should be between the wrist and shoulder joint, demonstrating that no extensions were being used.
>>
>>30008173
Indeed. If they are limb extensions then they're pretty ingeniously devised.

>>30008231
It would be foolish to claim that it is outright impossible for a costume to replicate that natural movement.
Let's content ourselves with agreeing that the figure seen in the film shows a natural movement which is unlikely to be replicated by a costume and certainly one of that era.
>>
I fully believe there could be another lesser evolved humanoid species roaming around the US, evading human contact

But I just can’t bring myself to give a fuck and don’t understand why anyone else does. There’s literally an entire culture around a fucking forest monkey.

What’s the allure? We already know there are primates with complex social dynamics. Is it just because it’s ‘merica monke?

And let’s be honest. If it was officially announced that Sasquatch was officially verified as a new species, no one would give a fuck after a month.

There’s not much about it that captures the imagination beyond uncertainty around its existence. “Oh look, it’s shitting on a log.” “Oh wow, look at it tear apart that dog”

>>30008256
If the subject was a man in a costume, it would move like a man in a costume and share the limb ratio of a man in a costume. It doesn't.

The Jack Links sasquatch commercials demonstrate that it's easy to distinguis a human in a costume by simply noting the arm / leg length ratio and the walking gait. This subject walks like a normal person, and has the limb ratios of a normal person, despite being in a costume.

Bob doesn't have the same arm to leg length ratios as the PGF subject, and Bob doesn't share the same walking gait as the PGF subject. His arms are too short, he locks his legs like everyone else when he walks, and his lower leg and foot angles don't match the PGF subject.

>>30008374
No. It doesn't. The Jack Link's costume clearly demonstrates that fact.

>>30008390

Not with human anatomy. The human foot and leg can't make the angles of the PGF subject because it violates our anatomical design. A costume has nothing to do with it....

I hope the fisherman finds the megalodon next to his port to not waste too much diesel too.
>>
>>30008403
That's not how it went.

Patterson was called because 3 different sets of footprints were found and he wanted to use them for his film. By the time he got down to California, rain had made the footprints unusable. Instead of going back to Washington, he and Gimlin searched the area where the prints were found for new footprints, day and night, driving the logging roads at night in a truck, and searching lowland on horseback during the day. They encountered the Sasquatch they filmed after about 3 weeks of searching.

They put in a lot of effort to search an area that had recent signs of Sasquatch, so finding one isn't that surprising. The thing may have been attracted by the smell of the horses or something.....

I have no opinion on whether it’s a costume or not and the verdict is still out, but that’s a pretty weak argument.

You act like proportions on a costume have to be the exact length as the person wearing it. People specifically put on full body costumes to NOT have the same proportions.

Why would the person have to move like a human for it to be a costume? People can move however they want. We aren’t machines

Anatomy defines how you move, not desire.

>>30008593
The man in the Sasquatch costume demonstrates exactly that a man in a costume shares the same arm/leg ratio's and walking gait as a normal person. The subject of the PGF does not, which demonstrates that it is NOT a man in a costume.
>>
>>30008565

My dude.
There is a world of difference between the claim that the typical human gate looks different and the one which you made earlier:

So again, what's your source on the claim that our very anatomy prohibits such movement?

Anatomy is the source.
>>
>>30008619
Prove it. Make a video showing us how you can walk without locking out your legs, and while achieving a foot and lower leg angle of nearly ninety degrees as does the subject of the PGF.

ok so as far as i know, this Gymlan video was shot in the 60s. one of the guys at the time was knows for spoofing bigfoot either at the time or later on in life. also, one of the 2 guys admitted near his death it was a hoax but one of the other guys said it was real until the day he died. am i getting this right?

in my opinion, the craziest proofs of the Samsquantch is large, deep inna woods forrest structures or the destruction and manipulation of large green and strong trees.

such as a 10 inch diameter green tree snapped in half, 8 foot high. with no tractor tracks or whateveraround it. only a very very strong being could do that.
>>
>>30008839
>am i getting this right?
No.

The PGF was filmed in Oct of 67' by Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin. Patterson died in the 70's and insisted the footage was genuine until the day he died. Gimlin is still alive, and after stopping to discuss the incident for years due to the way the journalists would distort his story, he eventually started talking again and has told the same story for 50 years.

There was an individual that made fake bigfoot feet out of wood, but he had nothing to do with the film, or either of the men that filmed it.

It doesn't matter. Bigfoot as a concept fundamentally makes no sense outside of impossible to prove paranormal phenomenon. In other words, it makes no sense as a biological cryptid or otherwise undiscovered hominid. It's intelligent enough to know what trail cameras are, understand how they function well enough to avoid or move them, and smart enough to avoid all contact with humans.

If it's that smart it's obviously capable of higher intelligence beyond what a chimp or gorilla is capable of. And we know chimps have a semblance of culture. Moreso a hominid that's capable of having a species-wide ban on direct human contact. But that begs the question, if it is that smart why wouldn't ONE of them try to contact us? Why wouldn't one just run onto a busy freeway and say its equivalent of "hi"? If they're smart enough to roll around avoiding trailcams and reach a species-wide consensus on human-avoidance they're smart enough to disagree with the decision on a personal level. At some point one of them would have fucked off into an American downtown and see what all the bullshit is about.

>inb4 chimps don't do it either

Chimps don't avoid and/or reposition and/or destroy trail cams to walk past them without being photographed. If bigfoot exists it would have to be on another intellectual level to completely avoid human contact along the entire line of the species. Or it isn't a biological cryptid at all and is actually some other form of entity entirely. The latter however is unproveable and completely irrelevant as a result.

Telepathy, weird shimmering portal objects appearing, being able to move without making a sound, walking behind an object and disappearing altogether, being able to move so fast that they were just a blur, mind manipulation, and being able to affect the environment in ways that seem impossible like telekinesis or something.
I thought I was going to die, I was very lucky.
My guess is these things are remnants of an old advanced civilization that was nearly wiped out thousands and thousands of years ago.

That's because the paradigm of human evolution is a mess. To much is assumption, too much contradictory evidence ignored because it doesn't fit. That's why 'squatch is ignored and continuously claimed to be a myth - because it doesn't fit. The problem is the paradigm, the narrative, not the evidence.

>Why wouldn't one just run onto a busy freeway and say its equivalent of "hi"?
It knows instinctively humans are bad news and steers far, far clear of any of our noise, except to raid a chicken or something now and then. It's easy for it to avoid us, we are loud sons of bitches and it's far better adapted to this planet than we are There are more areas where it can survive on the earth than there are where humans can.

Anwyay, humans like us have been around for a lot longer than is accepted in the current understanding of history, and these guys have perhaps had ancient experience with us before.

And of course there are reports of instances of extended contact. Like the female in... I forget where, some small Russian village maybe... who lived with a local man and he fucked it and it bore his kids. Not the Sasquatch or Yeti type - the smaller version, it has another name.

Or the time one took a shine to a guy and brought him into the wilderness and threw him in a pit. He spent something like a days there and observed a family unit, father, mother and child - he even observed the female and child washing leaves before consuming them. He escaped, and didn't tell anyone for decades because of the stigma and hassle of saying you've seen one.

There are reports of these beasts way back into antiquity, different types on the different continents. Read Forbidden Archaeology by Cremo and Thompson.

>Anatomy is the source.

Nope. Your claim is that anatomy prohibits humans moving in such a way.
I'm simply asking you to substantiate that claim. Evidently this was not one of the claims which you were prepared to support and if you cannot in fact make an empirical argument that such locomotion is physically impossible for a human then the assertion that no costume could be crafted to allow a human to reproduce what we see in Patty simply falls flat.

>>30008647

I can't give you a video of me doing the splits...does that mean humans physically can't do the splits?
Sorry, your demand is spurious and the attempt to switch the burden of proof is troubling.
All this stems from the mere IDEA that it is within the realm of possibility that a costume could be devised that would reproduce what we see from Patty.
If you which to wholly exclude this as a possibility by asserting that humans are anatomically incapable of locomoting in this way....then the burden to substantiate that claim is yours.

So once again, source?

If you don't understand that human anatomy limits the range of motion of the foot and lower leg while walking, I can't explain it to you. None other than Dr. Jeff Meldrum, a trained anthropologist that specializes in bipedal locomotion, demonstrates this fact. I even posted a video of people walking that demonstrates the natural range of motion and lower extremity angles for people like you to observe.

Regardless, you can't reason with the unreasonable, and you are unreasonable.

Equating walking normally, as the subject in the PGF does, with "doing the splits" is not a valid comparison.

If the subject on film is a man in a costume, as you claim it is, then any normal person should be able to replicate the walking gait and achieve the same foot and lower leg angles while walking without locking their legs.

They can't, though, because their anatomy prohibits them from replicating that gait because it's not a human gait.

You can lengthen the limbs all you want beyond the joints using extensions, but you can't change the position of the elbow and knee joint, which makes it easy to spot when extensions are being used. The subject in the PGF has their elbow and knee joints located exactly where they should be, which demonstrates no extensions were used in the arms or legs.

How do you know "they" haven't found a body and just not reported it? How many UFO reports see the light of day in the public spotlight, despite thousands of sightings reported every year?

Apparently there is a mandate from the department of the interior to keep the existence of these things hidden from the public. That's why the press does little more than ridicule the people and the subject, the police won't admit to anything, and academia treats it like it's the plague.

>If you don't understand that human anatomy limits the range of motion of the foot and lower leg while walking, I can't explain it

Well we agree on one thing: you can't explain your argument.
I assumed that you had made your claim on some kind of empirical basis. I had assumed you'd be able to produce a valid source or argument beyond "well it's just obvious".

I don't think it's fair to call me unreasonable for asking you to do more than simply assert that this kind of locomotion is impossible for humans and actually substantiate said claim.

But if that's as far as you find yourself willing or capable of taking this argument then we shall end it there.

>>30015999

>Equating walking normally, as the subject in the PGF does, with "doing the splits" is not a valid comparison.

It's a perfectly valid response to the inane challenged of "Prove YOU can do x, right now" because even if i cannot personally do it (and i'm think i can desu) that does not prove that NO ONE can do it, that it is impossible.
Simple.

>If the subject on film is a man in a costume, as you claim it is,
Don't claim it, haven't claimed it. Literally all i've done is show intellectual honesty but acknowledging the mere idea that it is within the realm of possibility that a sufficiently well-designed costume could produce what we see from Patty.

>then any normal person should be able to replicate the walking gait
No, not necessarily. Not every person can do the splits but splits are certainly within the range of motion of human anatomy.

>They can't, though, because their anatomy prohibits them from replicating that gait

Again....source?

I personally think it's some dude walking
in a suit. I actually have a theory I don't think anyone else has thought of: I think this is just some backwoods (potential a hillbilly) weirdo who just likes fucking with people. I think he made a Bigfoot suit out of game he's hunted. There's a few weird unexplained things that have happened the past decades since it's happened that no one can really explain. The most prominent example was the bear with 3 legs they found right near where the original film was shot. Doesn't seem like a coincidence. I think some weird hillbilly anon just likes fucking with people as a hobby.

If it's a dude walking in a suit then:
1. The suit would look like the other shitty fur suits from the 60's. It doesn't.
2. The dude would have the same arm/leg length ratio's as your average dude. It doesn't. The arms are way too long.
3. The dude would share the same walking gait as your average dude. It doesn't.

All the evidence points to an actual sasquatch and not a dude in a suit.

I'm the anon who asked if someone could point it out - I've heard a few different things but I don't necessarily put any stock in them - I've never seen the additional squatches and I'm not sure if what we're looking at is supposed to be "the original footage" or not
1) the original footage shows the aftermath of a bigfoot massacre - Patty is limping and injured as a result - the way she's walking away slowly and looks over her shoulder is because she's badly hurt and humiliated after witnessing others of her family massacred, knowing there is nothing she can do, powerless she leaves in pain
2) I've heard more recently that some people think Patty has a baby bigfoot holding on to her person somewhere
Whether or not these two are contradicting interpretations of the footage or not, I don't know. I have seen image macros in the chart with supposed photographic evidence of the massacre, but nothing conclusive, nothing recently, and certainly not anything specifically pointing out additional individuals like the baby.

The Bigfoot researchers say that no human can walk that way in the film. Oh, yes they can! When you're wearing long clown's feet, you can't place the ball of your foot down first. You have to put your foot down flat. Otherwise, you'll stumble. Another thing, when you put on the gorilla head, you can only turn your head maybe a quarter of the way. And to look behind you, you've got to turn your head and your shoulders and your hips. Plus, the shoulder pads in the suit are in the way of the jaw. That's why the Bigfoot turns and looks the way he does in the film. He has to twist his entire upper body.
>>
>>30018772
Yeah this theory was elaborate nonsense I decided. I was solely based on a trick of the 8mm film used that made a spot on the ground look unusually red, which was interpreted as a pool of blood. That's pretty much it.
Patty is just high-tailing it away from the weird, noisy, bald goblins. If it were a male they may have been attacked and killed instead.

It stands to logic that if squatches exist, then female squatches exist. This Patterson feller was clearly a bigot who believes there are only two sexes.

Jokes aside, if squatches are anything like humans, chances are actually greater that you'll encounter a female, 51 to 49%.

look up the mid tarsal break, it's an anatomical difference in great apes that forces certain gaits which are at the least uncomfortable and at most impossible for a human, depending on terrain. i don't know the terrain of the footage location so i can't say for certain if it's impossible, but the footage matches what would be expected much better than anyone except a primatologist would know to replicate

That image is flawed, because there is no way to look at it in a way that is unbiased. Your brain already knows the image on the right is a fake so your brain makes connections that point to that idea without you even being consciously aware of it, so of course you're going to say the image on the right looks fake. With the image on the left you are uncertain and there is no way to conclusively resolve that uncertainty, leaving you with the uncertain feeling even if you reason that it is unlikely to be real, there will always be that small doubt.
That said, the biggest thing in that picture that is confusing is not the "suit" but the but rather, the way that Bigfoot is walking. It is physically impossible for a man to stand like that. No one has done it. Our arm, leg and torso muscles are just not capable of pulling it off.

You missed the point there. It wasn't that this is proof of a hoax, it's a refutation of the argument that IF it's a hoax then no one would have thought to make the bigfoot a female....since Patterson evidently did and indeed there was a report and illustration from a few years before of a female bigfoot.
That is to say the notion is not some astounding leap that no hoaxer would think to make.
>>
>>30020726
Because it's not a costume, it's a gorilla's hide.
>>
>>30023767

But Bob Heironimus says they made it using horse hide...
>>
>>30020726
Because it's not a suit.

Look at the arm length on the suit on the right and compare it with the sasquatch. If the PGF was a guy in a suit, then he would share the arm/leg length ratio of the O/THER guy in the suit on the right, but it doesn't, because it's NOT a "guy in a suit".

Look at the leg angles of the guy in the suit on the right. They match your typical walking gait of any given human. If the PGF was a guy in the suit it would walk the same way, but it doesn't.

Shit aint rocket science folks.

In order to convince yourself it's a "guy in a suit" you have to:
A: Invent a form fitted fur suit that's never been duplicated before or since
B: Find an extraordinary human with abnormal arms that are longer than other humans
C: Find an extraordinary human with unnatural lower legs, feet, and ankles that allows him to walk using unnatural leg/foot angles that are close to the walking gait of a gorilla or lemur than that of human beings.
D: Invent a crew that can actually keep a secret for over 50 years

It's easier to find a unicorn than all that shit. Or a sasquatch.

Easily disproven by the fact the recess behind the knee is visible, as is the muscle seperation between the hamstrings and quads on the leg.

Gorilla hide isn't form fitting and would mask the joints at the knee, elbow, ankles, and wrists, but they are all clearly visible to any reasonable person.

I'm skeptical of that because i think people claim to see a whole lot of detail (on both sides of the argument) which appears to take a a fair amount of effort to see for a reasonable person.
But the movement of the glutes and the leg should not be a subtle jiggle. It should be a large and obvious movement as the legs extend and flex and the glutes keep the balance.

Depends on the footage being used. A lot of the shit you see is from copies of copies of copies, which introduces shit that's not there and erased some of the detail. The actual film itself is excellent quality, as are the first few copies made. I'm pretty sure it was Bill Munns who took a frame by frame copy of footage obtained by Mrs. Patterson herself and put it all on a computer. That shit shows a lot of detail you can't see on other sources.

The original was pretty much stolen from Mrs. Patterson after Roger died, so all she has left is one of the first copies. Look for Bill Munns digital analysis because he took digital prints of the copy Mrs. Patterson has.

Dr. Jeff Meldrum also has some prints made from some of the earliest copies that show excellent detail as well.

MK Davis does a good job too, as he uses computer programs to process the images for better detail based on his experience photographing stars and shit in space.

Here's a gait comparison between some random dude walking, the PGF subject, and a gibbon walking on its hind legs.

Note the extreme angle of the foot as it leaves the walking surface on the PGF and gibbon compared with the man. Not the extreme angle of the lower leg compared to the man. Note how neither the PGF subject or the gibbon lock out their legs during movement like men do.

If the subject of the PGF was a man in a suit, then its gait would resemble the man on the left, but it doesn't, and it's far closer to that of a gibbon. This demonstrates a different set of anatomy is being used than that of a human, and that it was NOT a man in a costume,

A lot of people are drawing autistic conclusions about a 1 minute bit of footage with less pixels than a Liveleak homicide. That's not to say bigfoot in general doesn't exist, simply it makes no sense for a species of gigantic great ape to be wandering around for millennia with no credible physical evidence to show for it by now. Even orangutans as isolated as they are leave shit, hair, and bodies.

Can you name one? Maybe w/ a credible peer reviewed study that establishes they do in fact have confirmation its really bigfoot and not another mountain goat like that Yeti scalp nonsense.
All I've been able to dig up is claims of bigfoot hair and shit with either refusal to do dna testing, inconclusive test results, amateur claims (Bigfoot smut lady for instance), and a lot of misidentification that's proven in dna tests.
Bison, bear, elk, pig, and etc hair isn't proof anon.

Collections are cute, my niece has one for shiny "fairy" rocks she finds, but there's nothing that establishes a population of unknown giant primates is living in the wilderness. Game cameras can pick up highly endangered and rare species all the time, yet not a single conclusive shot of bigfoot? Not a single corpse? Not even some hundred+ year old toe bone kept by some Native American tribe or frontiersman?
>>
>>30015964
Anon you're forgetting: humans talk. The most trivial meaningless bullshit will trend on social media for weeks on end, anybody that genuinely found a real body of an unidentified large primate would have the worldstar videos of them poking the corpse trending within the hour. For gods sake remember the whole retarded spiel around a dead raccoon ("The Montauk Monster").
>How many UFO reports see the light of day in the public spotlight

Press consooms what sells stories, bigfoot being real would sell like hotcakes. Police aren't animal control.

If it's a "dude in a suit", then the suit would share the characteristics of contemporary fur suits. It doesn't.

If it's a "dude in a suit", then the subject would share the same arm/leg length ratio as a "dude in a suit". It doesn't.

If it was a "dude in a suit", then it would share the same walking gait as a dude in a suit. It doesn't.

Ergo, it's not a "dude in a suit".

NONE of the evidence available on the film supports the "dude in a suit" hypothesis, rendering that hypothesis completely falsified.
>>
>>30026227
>no credible physical evidence to show for it by now.
Footprint evidence from around the nation is, indeed, "physical evidence". The prints share the same characteristics, regardless of state in which they were found. Some of these prints have dermal ridges that have been identified as being non-human AND non-primate, as assessed by Mr. Jimmy Chilcutt, a leading print analyst.

Hair samples taken from sighting locations have also been analyzed and determined to be "of unknown origin", and share characteristics of both primates and humans alike.

There's plenty of "physical evidence".
>>
>>30026525
Forearms can be extended, but you can't move the elbow joints, which makes it easy to identify the arm extensions because the forearm is too long compared to the upper arm.

Use your brain already.

The "fake joint" you refer too would require the arms to be far longer than that which is depicted on the PGF.

Preservation

Please don't cry about peer review. It's not a conspiracy. The fact is that people simply aren't writing papers on bigfoot that pass the bar of scientific rigour.
For example the paper by Melba Ketchum repeatedly failed peer review. Was it a conspiracy by big SCIENCE who refused to accept the possibility of bigfoot?
No, it was a shit poor paper that literally cited JOKE papers as reference material. A number of the people who reviewed the paper (like many scientists) are only too excited to be shown that bigfoot is real.

I know crying conspiracy is the easiest way to explain why other people aren't convinced by what you find so convincing but the conspiracy simply is there...just like conclusive evidence.

You haven't covered anything.
If a man with a doctorate in primatology and decades of experience is not "top level" then no one is.

This attempt to discredit a very credentialed professional is dishonest and unnecessary. You can disagree with his conclusions without taking the asinine position that he doesn't deserve respect of his scholarship.

These statements aren't remotely the same and we both know it. Why would peer review stop what would be one of the biggest discoveries in primatology? Think anon, researchers are money whores with too much to gain from being bought out by supposed government agents. No amount of hush money would stem the inevitable legitimate leaks that would occur with credible evidence to support it, they'd sell their soul for a huge profit in just media appearances let alone conferences; think of the NSA being whistleblown level of importance.

I asked for something simple and was given a "literally who".

His credentials aren't relevant to what I asked; its a weak appeal to authority.

Honestly I'd say any bigfoot would be closer to the orangutan in terms of mystery, indigenous awareness, and difficulty in confirming. Known for centuries by natives, naturally isolated for most of their adult lives, and only formally classified in 1799. Mountain gorillas are an even better analogue with as recent as 1902.
Don't get me wrong I'd LOVE to be proven wrong and see a new ape species discovered in my lifetime, but as it stands with as much development, expansion, and advances in technology to the present, I just can't see how anything short of a literal interdimensional entity could be the case.

I haven't seen ANYTHING, not a forum post, not a bigfoot fan blog, not anything that says his collection has hair or shit, the latter you're full of.
Come back to me when you have any body of evidence outside of shill marketing.

>and was given a "literally who".

lol don't be silly. As if you could name any even a single anthropologist who hasn't been on TV.

Rejecting Dr Meldrum as a legitimate expert in this area come off as dishonest, hand-waving attempts to pretend there are no learned scientists who believe in and can coherently argue for the existence of a large, unknown hominid living in North America.

>You don't see doctors in liberal arts being hailed as "top level dancers, musicians, finger painters". His credentials aren't relevant to what I asked; its a weak appeal to authority.

...you asked for an authority to be appealed to and now you're criticizing it? You lost me.
He has a doctorate in biological anthropology. Maybe i
m misunderstanding. Did you or did you not ask for an expert in anthropology?

>half-baked lectures based on 10 seconds of a blurry shape

I don't think that's really a fair characterization of the field as a whole. Certainly there are some people who are just making a living that way but you have only to watch some of these guys talk to know how much they believe in this and how much of their lives they devote to its study.
There is no conspiracy to keep proof of bigfoot secret but it's just as dishonest and tribalistic to dismiss all bigfoot proponents as shills and desperate halfwits.
>>
>>30031551

Yes you're right. I was thinking about his doctorate in biological anthropology and his debates with primatologists, a simple mistake. You'll see that i've referred to his correct credentials in a subsequent post.

>Constantly I've been seeing this language idolizing these "experts" as infallible, flawless, the almighty authority.

Nope. You're getting worked up over a strawman.
Literally all i've said here is that Dr. Meldrum is a qualified expert of the sort ( i think) you were asking for. I haven't claimed he's infallible.
You don't even know what my position is on the existence of bigfoot. You're just reacting adversarially to someone disagreeing with you. The pro-sasquatch team is doing the same to me.
Funny that.

And i never said he had a collection of biological samples.

>>30031371

So there was general acceptance for the existence of the giant squid all through modern times? This body was on display but people were rejecting it for no raison?

It's actually a myth that it was a myth?
>>
>>30007253
keep coping, you have wasted your life chasing something that isn't real.
>>
>>30031641
>This body was on display but people were rejecting it for no raison?

no...i think after a body was recovered it was known to science.
Before that it was mythological. Like bigfoot.
We need a body or a bone or a tooth or some hair or e-DNA....but so far there's nothing.

Got em'
You've won the internet.
lol come on, bud. Stop trying to make yourself feel good by making other people feel bad.
>>
>>30031560
>consooming media at any point
That's not a flex anon. I didn't dismiss him as an educated professor. I dismissed an anthropologist as an expert on a mythical species; should I trust art history doctors who believe in tooth fairies, sell tooth fairy hunting guides, and constantly promote tooth fairy hunter merchandise? Sincere question.
>Did you or did you not ask for an expert in anthropology?
I did and was given a state university teacher. If you weren't masturbating over this guy so hard (are you like those people who worship Fauci?) you noticed that question was directed at the claim >>30026267 Not only is he not a top level anthropologist (you clearly don't understand how professors aren't all the best of the best, absolutely infallible experts of their respective fields) but keyphrase here *he didn't have tons of hair and shit in his collection*. So off the bat, every single fanboy of this guy is making up claims for him. Why would I trust anything you have to say when from the beginning I've been told a lie?
>That's not a fair characterization
Find me any "bigfoot experts" that aren't either selling books, conferences, movie deals, documentaries, television shows, or just plain scams. For gods sake this is from the BFRO for glorified camping trips: http://bfro.net/news/roundup/exped_faq.asp#fee Why would anybody pay up to half a grand just to larp in the woods? I could do that for far cheaper, with firearms, and have a grand old time for not even 1/5 of that price. What experience are they trying to sell?
I'm not dismissing all proponents as shills and halfwits: simply saying the clear vast majority are selling fantasies to an audience WANTING to believe, not they do believe but that they WANT there to be some mystery in life that they have the agency to think "I'm special because I KNOW this exists". Its the same thing you see in holistic guru websites, chiropractic offices, new age shops, so on and so forth. The profit motive is clear though
>>
>>30031665
make people feel bad? over chasing something fake, I'm doing them a favor by trying to snap them out of it.
>>
>>30031659

Then it's a myth that it was a myth?

Everyone intelligent knew about the giant squid for almost 150 years, it was only that most people were ignorant and thought it was a myth, and that's why it was in books about weird myths along with bigfoot and nessie and shit?

You all do remember that most people thought the giant squid wasn't real up to 2000 ish? But this was a case where the 90% were ignorant?
>>
>>30031641
It was more considered a superstition than actual wildlife. Sailors throughout history have a lot of wacky silly legends that often have some basis in reality: St Elmo's Fire is a great example of what was often just regarded as a superstition being based in fact. And yeah there absolutely was bodies of giant squid prior to its formal recognition, its just prior to that any bodies that were found were quick to be consumed by the elements leaving little behind and the availability of information (academics included) wasn't nearly as easy or widespread to share as it is today.
Tbf it seems the body recovered was a portion of a squid and recovered from a French ship where the captain knew it was heavily disputed by scientists and wanted to get a piece of history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_corvette_Alecton
>>
>>30031704
It was more the general layman didn't know enough of academics and so it was just a fanciful legend told by (possibly drunk) sailors. In the scientific community, there was discussion about its existence for centuries, it was just what physical evidence they could recover was fragments of a body and often resembling a jar of rotten eels when others came to inspect it. The long standing consensus was "These things do exist but they live so far deep in the ocean in such isolated numbers that we'll probably never see one alive let alone whole". It does have a place in classic Norse mythology as the Kraken and that's where most popular culture derives its origin of the giant squid from. Keep in mind that a lot of experts knew it did exist, it was just what was available wasn't easily consumable by the general public ("Here's a fragment of giant squid collected a hundred years ago... no it is not vomit in formaldehyde").

Its moreso there wasn't easily digestible evidence of giant squids outside of corpses, huge body of work on beached fauna by the way "blobsters" are pretty popular, until the Japanese recorded a LIVE individual in the wild and that circulated in the modern msm. Most normies didn't know enough so they thought "oh so we just discovered it" when in reality it was "finally we got footage of something we've known for 200+ years". Its just the difference between what the scientific community knows and the average layman: this also applies to medicine, aeronautics, engineering, etc.

First, 666 trips NICE lol

>Sincere question.
You should accept as expert a man who has a doctorate in biological anthropology and who focuses on the locomotion of primates because that is what we're looking at in the Patterson-Gimlin film.
Is the figure moving like a human in a suit or are we seeing a type of locomotion unlike humans?
That's the kind of question that Dr Meldrum has spent years preparing to answer.

>I did and was given a state university teacher ... are you like those people who worship Fauci?

So...is holding a high position deserving of confidence or is it not? I shouldn't hold Fauci's professional opinion in high regard just because he's the top doc but i should look down on Meldrum's professional opinion because he's not?
Is not being in a public position evidence that someone is not expert in their field? lol certainly not and i know you agree with that.
You were given an expert in his field and one who is eminently equipped to speak intelligently on the subject.
You cannot discredit that.
Again, didn't claim he had biological samples, that was someone else but it terms of his earned expertise in this field, you have no legitimate reason to exclude Dr. Meldrum.

>Find me any "bigfoot experts" that aren't either selling books

The quality of the arguments they present is not dependent on whether or not they write books or make money advocating for their position.
Poisoning the well is not a good logical position.
You judge them on their arguments.

you have used every single shitty reddit trolling method and its just tiresome. no one cares wat you think, you act like a prick to people and then strut around proud of being a retard.
>>30031340
you are dealing with a reddit faggot who thinks they know it all and want to be proud pricks without having their faggot karma downvoted.
nothing you say will be valid, you are arguing with a retard.
>>30031704
because the peope seeing it were "trash" and not of value. like the sailors that had seen the giant squid, or hte big fucking octopi in hte atlantic and the weird vicious ones in the caribbean that know how to grab things and hit sailors to get away.

Which would you say is the most aggregious? Because so far all i've intended to do was point out the weaknesses in arguments on both sides.
I think you're just falling into the all too common trap of treating disagreement as a personal attack.

>you are dealing with a reddit faggot who thinks they know it all

So i'm a Reddit troll dealing with a reddit faggot?
lol you see what i mean here? If i agree with you i'm fighting the good fight and if i'm disagreeing with you then i'm a troll.

I don't think anything can be gained by our continued interaction.
Have a pleasant evening.

Typical inconclusive bigfoot footage. Almost totally obscured behind cover and impossible to determine whether it's a unique hominid or a man.

It hasn't. Hence this thread discussing it.
