100% proof positive the Dr. Bryan Sykes study will conclude that Bigfoots exist! I hinted at this yesterday, but now from another book publishing newsletter, we have this:
Genetics professor investigates the Yeti
…Mark Booth, publisher of Hodder & Stoughton’s Coronet imprint, has acquired world rights excluding America in the provisionally titled The Quest for the Yeti, A DNA Detective Story from agent Luigi Bonomi.
The Quest for the Yeti will describe Sykes’ hunt for genetic traces of species whose existence remains scientifically unconfirmed, including the Yeti, the Sasquatch and Big Foot. For the most part the samples he has tracked down for analysis have turned out to be known species such as humans, bears or apes; however two samples taken towards the end of his quest will “change our understanding of human history,” he says…
Bonomi said: “Professor Sykes is a world authority on genetics and what he has to say about Yetis will shock the world”…
This is a different title from the one that was reported yesterday. Please note that this does not mean that science has proven that Bigfoots exist, although I choose to interpret it that way. It proves that Sykes research results in the conclusion that Bigfoots exist. However, mainstream science still has to accept Sykes’ findings as real in order for this to be officially proven by science. That is unfortunate, but this is how science works.
Fascinating interview with a retired forest ranger by Stacy Brown of Florida. Brown is a superb researcher, and unless this ranger is making the whole thing up, this is probably a true story. Since I believe that Bigfoots exist, it is obvious that they get hit and killed by vehicles from time to time. In fact, I have reported on many of these incidents. In every case, authorities came, sealed off the area, and the body disappeared. In one case, a black van came, and US soldiers dressed in black came out and took the body away. Black helicopters, black vans and black uniforms are not fantasy. Actually this means nothing more than US military intelligence or DIA. Their color is black.
Reverend Jeff Kelly interview regarding the Erickson Project and Timbergiantbigfoot’s latest videos.
In this video, Jeff interviews special effects guru Doug Hudson. Doug reports that Timbergiantbigfoot’s creature has real fur, not synthetic fur. There are no suits that use real fur. All suits use synthetic fur. Therefore, TGBF’s video shows a real animal of some sort. It could be a Bigfoot, a bear or some sort of a dog, particularly a Chow. All of those have hair that somewhat resembles the hair in that video. My friend at the Smithsonian said that TGBF shot a real Bigfoot in that video also. “I know because that is exactly what their hair looks like.” This man designs the backdrops and displays for the museum.
However, Hudson also said that the Erickson Project’s Matilda video was obviously a Chewbacca mask. However, it surely does not match the mask it is said to be on comparison shots in any way whatsoever. There are 4-5 other Chewie masks out there, and those ought to be put up against the Matilda footage as comparison to see if any of those masks match.
In addition, Hudson says that the Harley Hoffman video is 100% a man in a suit. I have always loved this video and I thought it was a real Bigfoot, though the back story is completely insane. I would love to see some good solid proof that this video is fake.
Interesting trail cam video of a possible Bigfoot in Kentucky. I rather like how this things walks. It seems to walk very fast and has that Bigfoot way of walking. However, looking through this fellow’s videos, he has a lot of lot “woo” stuff like videos of ghosts, UFO’s and other paranormal stuff. Therefore, he is simply not a very good source. Until we can analyze this video better, it must remain inconclusive due to the hazy source.
Why I do not believe that Matilda is a mask. The black tongue, gums and inner mouth, the long straight tongue and the jutting lower jaw with a strong underbite all suggest to me that this is not a mask. Yet I am bothered by the fact that her mouth is open the whole time as a mask would be. But she may be opening her mouth to smell better, as many animals open their mouths to smell. She probably smells the human hidden nearby in the ghillie suit. In the rest of the video, Matilda walks forward a few more steps, sees the woman in the ghillie suit, growls and turns and walks away. When she walks away, she walks exactly like Patty, 100% dead ringer.
Back story: This was a known habituation site that the BFRO had been investigating. Dennis Pfohl worked with the BFRO and was investigating the site. The couple had a number of videos of Bigfoots. They used to show them at parties at their house to the locals. It was well known in town that Bob and Sissy had Bigfoots on their property, but it was sort of an open secret. Later, Erickson got involved and hired Pfohl. The couple offered two of the videos for sale. Both videos looked like the Matilda footage – that is, they looked like Wookies. Erickson rejected them as possible fakes with a Wookie mask.
The woman was instructed to try to get better video. For a long time, the woman tried to get close up video, but she could not get close enough to the creatures to videotape one. Finally, Dennis showed her how to use a ghillie suit and loaned her a nice video camera. Using the ghillie suit, she was finally able to obtain good footage such as the Sleeping Bigfoot and Matilda footage.
If this couple were hoaxing, why wait until you get the ghillie suit? Why the long interval between the initial Wookie videos and the later ones shot with the ghillie suit when the woman said she could not get close enough? It’s not a problem to get close to a guy in a suit. If they were hoaxing, they could have delivered Wookie videos at any time. After 4-5 more videos were taken, Erickson apparently decided that maybe Matilda did look like a Wookie after all, and he bought the footage.
What we need to know is what Dennis and Leila Hadj-Chikh saw when they were at the site. Did they get a good look at Matilda? If so, did she look like a Wookie? If she did, then that solves the “she looks too much like a Wookie” problem. Perhaps the reason she looks too much like a Wookie is because that is actually how she looks. I also believe that Matilda is the Bigfoot that Dr. John Bindernagel saw when he was flown out to the site by Adrian Erickson. If so, Bindernagel may also have noticed that she looked like a Wookie.
It is true that the couple sold the videos to Adrian for a pretty penny, possibly ~$100,000. This is where the hoaxing accusations come in – they profited immensely from those videos. They used that money to buy a boat and a new car, and they moved to a better house a few miles away. Some have described the couple as “somewhat shady.” The habituation site was located on Mann Road in Crittenden, Kentucky.
How easy would it be to modify a Chewbacca mask to make it look like Matilda? It has been said that it would be trivial to modify the Chewie mask shown to make it look like Matilda. However, that would mean a custom mask. Custom Bigfoot masks costs tens of thousands of dollars, far beyond the means of most folks, and are available only from a few special effects artists. Furthermore, no Bigfoot hoax has ever used a custom mask. Most Bigfoot hoaxes use only a few masks, which are generally easily identifiable.
Keep in mind also that when George Lucas created his Chewbacca character for Star Wars, it ended up looking very much like a Bigfoot. So it should not be surprising if some Bigfoots look like Wookies.
But would it really be trivial to do this on your own?
How are you going to do that? How and why are you going to modify the jaw so it has marked prognathism (there is no prognathism in the Chewie mask)? How and why are you going to create a browridge (the Chewie mask has no browridge)? How and why are you going to replace all the teeth and create a straight front line of teeth (the teeth on the mask and Matilda are totally different)?
How and why are you going to create much more distance between the nose and the upper lip and make that distance project outwards (prognathism) when the Chewie mask has less distance and the direction is flat, not prognathous? How and why are you going to give the thing a tongue (the Chewie mask has no tongue)? How and why are you going to recreate the nose (the Chewie mask’s nose is different from Matlida’s)? How and why would you give the thing a black tongue, black gums and black inner mouth? How and why are you going to make the gums show on the creature when there are no gums on the mask?
Robert Wadlow, Bigfoot-sized human. This man lived in the early part of the 20th Century in the US. He was measured at 9 feet, 2 inches tall in his shoes and 8 feet, 11 inches barefoot. Here is his photo below.
Beckjord’s Patty from the Patterson film. Jon-Erik Beckjord, now deceased, was one of the craziest Bigfooters of all time. There was scarcely a nutty theory about Bigfoots that he would not endorse. Here is a good sketch marking up a Patty drawing with his fake theories.
