Far away white thing streaks across a field on all fours. Conclusion: Bigfoot (Removed)

REMOVED

Why was this post removed?

We at Doubtful News have decided that Bigfoot news is currently too absurd to warrant discussion on our site. There is no solid evidence that Bigfoot exists. Yet, TV shows and cryptozoology personalities have assumed the reality of the creature instead of considering all reasonable options to explain eyewitness reports. That’s not science. It’s pure speculation.

Therefore, we have decided from this point to limit our coverage of Bigfoot to any ACTUAL quality news stories that arise that have some value, not rumors or disputes between personalities or humorous mention of Bigfoot in the media. Because of the tendency of too many in the pro-Bigfoot camp to attack critics (often personally) who question the evidence, and to hype speculation for web hits and ad revenue instead of providing well-thought out arguments, we have removed this post.

This site is designed to be a place for rational exchange. The lessons we have learned from posting Bigfoot stories is that rational exchange doesn’t happen.

    “An incredible rate of speed”. My fat ass could run faster than that!

    Nothing like pointing a low resolution camera at a computer monitor to record an already lousy resolution video. There was a conspiracy yahoo on JREF who used to print out pictures in pdf format, scan them, then upload the scanned images as proof of his latest conspiracy.

    Wow, that was tedious! 12 minutes of white, blurry, pulsating blob-squatch.

    And for all his apparent video editing expertise, you’d think he’d have posted at least one clip of original footage rather than “over the shoulder at the computer screen”. I Went through the list of all 66 of his posted vids (did not watch them all [ugh!], I’m just going by the titles and thumbnails), and not a single one of original footage…

    Makes ya go, Hmmmmm…

    A white bigfoot… I’m thinking the “Mugatu” from Star Trek…

    And the reaction from the bovine to a large wild animal is……nothing (and going by the cow’s reaction alone, in my opinion, is enough to label it a fake.) To me, it clearly looks like some random fool actually trying to run like a Lemur, he then hops on a pushbike/skateboard while hidden behind a tree……gee, ppl in the usa must be SOOOOOOOO bored…..

      It’s also about looking for ANY bit of “evidence” that looks like it supports their ideas. Notice that he never says “I don’t know what this is”, it is ASSUMED to be Bigfoot.

      A Lemur? Call the penguins!

    This is a fine example of the quality of evidence the Bigfoot proponents offer up. It is worth pointing out that M.K.Davis is the one who decided that there is evidence of a Bigfoot massacre associated with the famous Patterson/Gimlin film. Typically, Bigfoot is seen more or less everywhere with these people, and they are impervious to logic, often accusing skeptics of the faulty thought processes they themselves cling to so fiercely.
    There are serious problems with every single piece of evidence associated with the Sasquatch phenomenon. A common line of defense is ” you cant prove it’s a hoax,therefore it is real”. I don’t have to point out to anybody here the problem with this line of reasoning. As Bigfoot continues to age, the field has become burdened with increasingly ludicrous claims, and the standards for acceptable evidence continue to decline.
    At the heart of the issue we find the fervent “believer” who seems incapable of entertaining the possibility that Bigfoot is nothing more than imagination. These same people readily admit the reality of the Space Program, but cannot conceive of human beings clever enough to fake footprints or inconclusive video. The mind boggles.

      Very well stated. We may not be able to prove this video or that photo is a hoax, but we have more than enough irrefutable evidence of Bigfoot hoaxing to definitively state that it is relatively common. On the other hand, there is zero irrefutable evidence to support the existence of Bigfoot. So when it comes to being a hoax or real, which is the most logical choice?

    Yep, that was Bigfoot alright. That poor cow was petrified.

    Bigfoot proponents are always so amusing.

    Telltale signs of this being a CGI hoax:
    - The cow is a featureless black blob that moves oddly and doesn’t match the detail level of the surroundings.
    - The cow just so happens to be right in front of the “bigfoot”. Looks like an invitation for people to deduce the BF’s size.
    - Stagelike separation of the scene into foreground, horizon, and background. The BF just so happens to nicely cross the entire scene from left to right at the same distance to the camera, just behind the horizon line.
    - No motion except for the animals. Yeah, maybe there’s zero wind such that even the tree branches are still. My bet would be though that it’s just a still image.

    Such a video is easy to fake using just a still image of the wood, some animation software for the objects, and a mask layer to make it look like the BF was partially occluded by trees.

      Interesting. Thanks for your observations. It seems so off to me.

      However, if it IS the American south, in the summer, it could be that still. But, no meta data so we have no idea.

        Yup, it could be a video. Actually, the only thing that looks totally wrong to me is the cow. Subtract that mini-cow blob, and all you see is a guy (and two objects at the end that look and move more like dogs than calves).
