Finding Bigfoot: Rant of the Day

If you are a reader of ours, then you no doubt know that we have issues with almost every paranormal show out there..not because we don't believe in the paranormal and all of what that entails, but good research, good investigations, credible witnesses and solid evidence are needed if the world of the paranormal can gain acceptance and understanding.

That being said, we have to keep pounding away at the shows that squash that from happening..Enter 'Finding Bigfoot' more specifically the group's self declared leader Matt Moneymaker.

If you watch the show, you will no doubt make one conclusion rather quickly, in Matt Moneymaker's mind "everything is proof of a Sasquatch." If we look at all the "proof" that has been collected on the show...and I use the term "all" loosely...and then presented it in court..well...it'd get thrown out and no doubt with a thunderous amount of uncontrolled laughter from the bench..

Matt has two enthusiastic allies in his quest to not prove Sasquatch exists..but to prove Sasquatch is "everywhere" or so we think.. Bobo Fay..while Fay isn't quite as quick to declare all things are proof of a Sasquatch he no doubt fuels the flames by being very enthused at the meager so called evidence they do claim to find.

Moneymaker's biggest ally may be fellow investigator Cliff Barackman who seems to be almost as eager to accept every noise, moan, groan, twig snap, belch, buzz, soil impression as proof positive that Bigfoot is, as stated earlier.."everrrrrrrrrrrywhere.."

Ranae Holland the only female team member, is possibly the only sound mind in the bunch. Oh we are sure she has her enemies in the world of the paranormal but honestly, she makes good sense. She never indicates what she can't explain as "proof" but merely says, "she can't explain it" and that is just being honest. If the rest of the team members were a little more logical, they'd know they'd gain more respect by taking this more scientific minded stand..good evidence will speak for itself..wild assumptions, jumping to conclusions, failure to capture or explain things using facts or even good common sense will always slide down the slippery scope of respect.

It is odd to think that those that believe in Bigfoot so wholeheartedly could actually start to make people believe less in this creatures existence..but where there is no adequate tempering of attitude and beliefs...we end up at the end of the day, just sighing and rolling our eyes in frustration.
We'd love to see Finding BigFoot vs. The Peoples Court and then let them provide the best evidence and arguments they have for why BigFoot is real..now, tell us..wouldn't you watch? Not to prove or disprove what you may or may not believe, but to give this show and its team members a better perspective of what it really takes to present the best case for their claims.. What say you?

  1. You are absolutely right about this program. It makes them look rather foolish and like they don't know what they're talking about. Most paranormal investigators will take several days to investigate an area that is supposedly inhabited. The Finding Bigfoot team go to these towns, have a town meeting and find the worst witnesses possible! I mean, how many times are they going to listen to some 12 year old or younger who claimed to see a 12' Bigfoot? Just to be told that he "did see it, welcome to the club" by bigfoot stand-in, Bobo Fay. One of the worst shows on television as far as investigations is concerned.

    1. That is why I'd love to see them present their case on The People's Court :P. It'd be fun to see just what they have that they consider "evidence"...
