What is Bigfoot?
 Until bigfoot is on the “books” as a being, we will continue to have differing views of exactly what the animal is. This is to be expected. Our life beliefs are based on the life we’ve each led. This would include formal and informal knowledge acquired; people we’ve known, both good and bad; experiences we’ve had, both good and bad. This line of reasoning could go on and on, so, I’ll stop here. You get the idea.
     I appreciate when we receive on the blog, Bigfoot Ballyhoo, actual sighting reports. These people who have seen this being are few in number. We encourage them to be proud of their sighting and to talk about it. However, scoffing and ridicule is often the outcome. But just remember, this will not always be so; this “being” will be substantiated, because many are working tirelessly toward that end. It will probably be that bigfoot sightings will always be rare happenings, rare occurrences. You will always be a select group, so be proud and openly talk about it. I’d just say, remember the biblical admonition of throwing pearls before swine. Who needs scoffing and ridicule? We, after all, know what we’ve seen, know what we believe!
     I too, have my beliefs. I have a deep faith and belief in a heavenly Being that has given mankind a set of 66 books organized into the Bible for our instruction, knowledge and comfort. This is my belief system, based on years of study. Why am I bringing this up at this time? I just want it clear where my thinking is on bigfoot. I believe bigfoot is an animal and not a lost link in a so-called evolutionary chain. Sure, many animal species can interbreed, some producing offspring, but there it ends for the offspring are sterile. And of course, animals have been given exquisite abilities to live, each one in its own environment. And many animals have been given the ability to adapt and change over time while others simply possess instincts that serve them well. 
     All that said, I “believe” we have a right to know about the being, bigfoot. We need to know he exists so that we can look for him while in the forest, to simply admire and if need be, to protect ourselves from him.
