Does the Government Know About Bigfoot Synchronicity

By way of Oregon Bigfoot researcher Toby Johnson, this item about a BLM map and Bigfoot.

I've used the word "synchronicity" in the title because I've been thinking about a piece I want to write about the government's knowledge -- if any -- of Bigfoot's existence. Not a new idea of course but one I've been a bit "meh" on, until the other day. For some reason, on my way to and back from the Oregon coast, I was thinking very heavily on this. Woke up this morning thinking about the subject. Then find Toby's link …

From S.A.R at Bizarre Bigfoot: "Bigfoot and the Gov'mint"

SAR at Bizarre Bigfoot has a piece on the government's knowledge of Bigfoot. If the government knows BF exists, why the secrecy? That's a big question. I commented over there that, being a cynical person when it comes to government, the cover-up  -- and I believe there is one -- isn't to protect the creature, but protect the system.  In part, anyway. Who knows, we sure don't.

If you've read any of the Missing 411 books by David Paulides, one has to entertain the possibility of a Bigfoot type creature responsible in some way for the disappearances. Maybe. Now, I do not want to imply Paulides says this -- he doesn't. Any speculation along those lines is mine. This is all assuming Bigfoot is more than just  a "flesh and blood" creature.

Redfern at Cryptomundo: A Hairy Hand of the Horrific Kind

Nick Redfern on mysterious hairy hands that appear from nowhere...

Cryptomundo: A Hairy Hand of the Horrific Kind: Back in 2011, I wrote an article here at Mysterious Universe titled The Hairy Hands Horror. It begins as follows: “It was around the year 1910 that a weird and horrific saga began – on what is today the B3212 road, which can be found in the vicinity of the Dartmoor, England locales of Postbridge and Two Bridges. It became known as the mystery of the Hairy Hands. Somewhat disturbingly, a hairy, monstrous and unknown force would time and again violently lash out at unwary passing drivers, and which, in one case, reportedly even resulted in a tragic death for an unfortunate road-user.” (Nick Redfern)

Cryptomundo: Bigfoot is not Paranormal

Cryptomundo links to Bigfoot Crossroads on how Bigfoot is not "paranormal."

Cryptomundo:Bigfoot is not Paranormal: Bigfoot is not paranormal.

But how do you know? Nobody knows anything about bigfoot. It’s all theory and speculation!

I repeat, bigfoot is not paranormal.
One thing to hold that opinion. However, reasons given at Crossroads are … odd. I would take the whole thing seriously if actual high strangeness cases were presented, with analysis on why, according to Bigfoot Crossroads, they weren't really high strangeness at all and don't prove Bigfoot as paranormal.

Another Blog Stealing Content!!!

Recently at my UFO blog The Orange Orb, I posted links to blogs that blatantly steal from others, myself included. My article with their names, or no name at all, no link back to my blogs, photos of me but with someone else's article that I had nothing to do with… I'm not the only one. For example, one blog stole an illustration by Mike Clelland at his hidden experience blog and put it with an article I wrote. Niether Mike's drawing nor my article were given proper credit.

Now I find the following on my post concerning beeping Bigfoot: my photo but someone else's name! Not only that, they call my Orange Orb blog the "Orangey Orb."

 Frustrating you can't find these people behind these content stealing blogs. The best one can do is just shame them and out them when you find them.

Thom Powell Guest Speaker at OREGON MUFON

From MUFON's Keith Rowell, this item on Thom Powell's upcoming May 12th talk at Oregon MUFON in Portland. I won't be able to make it, darn it. I know it will be a very interesting talk!

thomsquatch: Local bigfoot researcher Thom Powell will speak at Oregon MUFON's May 2015 meeting. Come find out why Thom, a middle school teacher of science, found more than he bargained for in his research. Thom backs science all the way and is still a staunch advocate of scientific analysis of bigfoot evidence. However, today Thom acknowledges that some parts of bigfoot evidence are strange indeed. And this evidence, he believes, may require a reassessment of science's underpinnings. (Keith Rowell, via

Who is Sasquatch/Bigfoot?

From "Dirk" at House of the Sun, on the psychic/supernatural/ET aspects of Sasquatch. Among them, Bigfoot comes in various sizes as well as types (animal faced vs. ancient human face), controls the weather, reads minds, and so on.

Who is Sasquatch/Bigfoot?: They are a people, like us humans, and have families, and feeding grounds, and are thus protective of their own kind. They are very psychic, and they knew well in advance who is coming and what the intentions are of the visitors. “I shouldn't worry so much about someone killing one of the creatures. They are profoundly psychic and difficult to catch off guard. They can easily read your mind and know your every intent.” (House of the Sun)

Native Americans Reveal Secrets Of Bigfoot | Paranormal

Craig Adams at Before It's News has an article on supernatural Bigfoot in the Pacific Northwest, namely Oregon. Referencing articles from 88 years ago in The Oregonian, which tells of tales concerning the paranormal abilities of Sasquatch, the Native tribes of the area and their knowledge of such.

Native Americans Reveal Secrets Of Bigfoot | Paranormal: Every Indian, especially of the Puget Sound Tribes, is familiar with the history of these strange giant Indians, as they are sometimes referred to by local Indians. Shaker Indians of Northwestern Oregon, who attended the Shakers’ convention on the Skokomish Reservation on Hood Canal last year, related to the writer their experience with the Seeahtik Indians.  Oregon and Washington Indians agree that the Seeahtik Indians are not less than seven feet tall and some have been seen that were fully eight feet in height. They have hairy bodies like a bear. This is to protect them from the cold as they live entirely in the mountains. They kill their game entirely by hypnotism. They have great supernatural powers. They also have the gift of ventriloquism, and have deceived many ordinary Indians by throwing their voices.

The Silverton Bigfoot, and Killing It...

Lon Strickler at Phantoms and Monsters has this item about the yahoos -- podcasters at Dark Radio Jeff Gonzalez, Allen Thomas and Danny Valderrama --  who want to kill themselves a Bigfoot.

Phantoms and Monsters: Pulse of the Paranormal: If California-based paranormal experts do succeed in killing Bigfoot – the possible Silverton resident – local law enforcement promises to throw the book at them. 
Good for the local law. Of course, determinations need to be concerning Sasquatch as human, as "just" an animal, etc. according to authorities. Still, they are not amused and will not look the other way if such a thing were to happen. Assuming there is a Silverton Bigfoot to begin with.

The usual justifications for killing Bigfoot are uttered:

On Friday, Gonzalez said, “We’re not ashamed to say it. We came out a few years ago, saying, ‘We need to shoot Bigfoot.’” To prove the existence of Bigfoot, scientists will require a body. Then they’ll be able to identify Bigfoot DNA and go from there.” (Phantoms and Monsters)
 Oh, and then there's FOX, who will air Paranormal Central . . .

Lastly, there is this:

When I was a judge in Silverton years ago, a waiter used to run by the train in a monkey suit,” he said. Anybody planning an attempt on Bigfoot’s life “better be careful what they’re shooting at.” 
Again, assuming any of that is also true, shooting at what one thinks is a Bigfoot and having the being turn out to be human would be a tragic event.

Sasquatch of the Underworld | Mysterious Universe

Nick Redfern has an item at Mysterious Universe on Bigfoot in Oregon and the theory that Sasquatch uses underground tunnels, mines, etc. These stories are from the early 1900s.

Sasquatch of the Underworld | Mysterious Universe: One of the most thought-provoking theories for Bigfoot’s overwhelming elusiveness suggests that the creatures spend a great deal of time living in natural caves and caverns, as well as abandoned, old mines. In the early 1900s, a number of stories surfaced in the Oregon press that, upon careful reflection, just might offer a degree of support for this particularly intriguing theory that Bigfoot is very much a creature of the underground.

Hunter attacked by naked 'Sasquatch' asks: 'Why are you trying to kill me?' |

This item making Oregon news sources; naked man, attacks hunter, says he's Sasquatch, given prison sentence:

Hunter attacked by naked 'Sasquatch' asks: 'Why are you trying to kill me?' | "Well, I asked him who he was, and he replied very calmly, just as sane as anyone, that his name was Linus Norgren," McDonald recalled. And in the same reasonable voice, that "he was a Sasquatch from a family of Sasquatches."

Scotland News and Views:Experts using fake monsters to test how people report encounters with mythical creatures - Scotland / News & Views / The Sunday Post

Experts using fake monsters to test how people report encounters with mythical creatures - Scotland / News & Views / The Sunday Post: Experts have been using fake monsters to test how people report encounters with mythical creatures.

One exercise saw one person unleashed in a popular Edinburgh attraction dressed in a gorilla suit, as part of a study to see how people react to so-called Bigfoot sightings.

The experts have also used props and costumes to create other beasts.
Okay. As The Anomalist points out, this study seems heavily "front loaded." And if the photo shown with this article is an example of what the experimenters are using as Bigfoot costumes, oy.

So much that is unhinged about this, as well as amusing. What of the witness who had, once, an actual sighting of a Sasquatch, or some other beastie, such as the Loch Ness creature, etc. How would that factor in? Or is it assumed no such witnesses exist, since no such creatures exist?

They could always try looking at actual reports from Bigfoot witnesses . . .

Phantoms and Monsters: Pulse of the Paranormal

Lon Strickler has a good post about the high strangeness factor that surrounds Sasquatch. I like the question he muses upon here:

Phantoms and Monsters: Pulse of the Paranormal: Is it possible that ghostly creatures or cryptids may roam our planet? Could these be residual energies of previous living beasts, that manifest and present the effect of non-terrestrial or interdimensional beings. On the other hand, is there a chance that we are chasing corporeal entities that slip in and out of our plane of existence? (Strickler, Phantoms and Monsters)
Critics of the non-flesh and blood idea ask this how it is that a creature can leave footprints, for example, but not be otherwise present? Well, ghosts do such things; leave behind physical effects (scratches, moving items, sounds, EVPS, etc.) even while not being fully flesh and blood. If ghosts, spirits and other non-human entities can pop in and out of our reality, why can't Sasquatch? I'm not suggesting Bigfoot is a "ghost", rather, that Sasquatch might share some of the same mechanisms ghosts and spirits exhibit.
