Thom Powell was the guest last night on Coast to Coast. A great interview with host Connie Willis. What I really appreciate about Powell is what he said regarding researching the Sasquatch. At some point, he felt he had to come to a decision. Is his interest about collecting evidence, or going through the experience? I will say here that the same goes for UFO research. I've certainly come to that conclusion a long time ago, that my "research" regarding ufology concerns my experience. Whether it's Sasquatch or UFOs, my investigations begin with me, and others, and then, comparing and contrasting cases. But as far as "evidence" and certainly any evidence within a hard core scientific paradigm -- that's not what it's about for me. This is not to say physical evidence in either field is unwanted or unappreciated. It takes all varieties of individuals coming together to share their data -- truly share, and truly be inclusive.
There are still hold outs out there, in UFO Land and the Sasquatch field, who are strictly "nuts and bolts." None of this telepathic communications ("mindspeak") with the Sasquatch stuff for them. Fortunately, after a long time, this seems to be changing.
It was heartening to hear level headed words about a seemingly non-leveled headed topic (telepathic Sasquatch.) I was also very happy to hear Thom Powell mention Lisa Shiel, who to this day, seems to be somewhat ignored regarding Sasquatch research.
