Jeffrey Meldrum, PhD, and Professor of Anatomy and Anthropology at Idaho State University, shows us (in the video below) the strongest evidence for the existence of a large, bipedal humanoid being that is still roaming the planet today. As Meldrum states in the video, the most convincing evidence for the existence of a ‘Sasquatch,’ also commonly referred to as ‘Bigfoot,’  are the tracks that have been found by researchers in remote, forest-covered areas in North America, and these tracks number in the hundreds.

I am not saying that ‘Sasquatch’ or ‘Bigfoot’ is real. With this article, I am simply trying to show people that this ‘fringe’ topic is taken very seriously by a number of people. The examples used in this article are a few out of many from researchers who have spent decades looking at the evidence. Unfortunately, no matter how much evidence exists demanding that a subject needs to be examined more seriously, topics like this one are still instantly ridiculed without any attention paid to the many people who devote their time to exploring it. And these are not ‘crackpot’ people…

“I’m sure that they exist.” – Jane Goodall, a British primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, and UN Messenger of Peace on the existence of a ‘Sasquatch’ or ‘Bigfoot’ (source)

melYou wouldn’t think that this topic is taken seriously by numerous academics/scientists, but it is. Fortunately, there are scientists out there who are willing to examine the evidence, regardless of how ‘fringe’ or unbelievable the topic may seem. This is the true nature of science, to examine the unknown from a place of neutrality. The day we stop looking into theories or phenomena in a scientific manner, just because they don’t fit the frame, is the day science takes a large step backwards. As Albert Einstein once said, “condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance.”

Science is first and foremost a non-dogmatic, open-minded method of acquiring knowledge about nature through the observation, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena. Its methodology … should not be committed to any particular beliefs, dogmas, or ideologies. – Dr. Gary Schwartz, Professor of Psychology, Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry, and Surgery at the University of Arizona (source)

Most researchers who study the bigfoot subject will point to the abundance of witnesses as the factor they found most compelling about the mystery when first becoming acquainted with it. Over the course of time, bigfoot researchers meet enough eyewitnesses to realize there are indeed many, many eyewitness across the continent who are indeed very credible. Often there are multiple witnesses to a given sighting or encounter. (source)

Other studies have been conducted as well. One of the most recent, titled “Genetic analysis of hair samples attributed to yeti, bigfoot, and other anomalous primates,” was published in The Royal Society, Proceedings B. It examined unknown DNA samples from possible “anomalous” primates.

Throughout the twentieth century, thousands of eyewitness reports of giant bipedal apes, commonly referred to as Bigfoot or Sasquatch, have emanated from the montane forests of the western United States and Canada. Hundreds of large humanoid footprints have been discovered and many have been photographed or preserved as plaster casts. As incredulous as these reports may seem, the simple fact of the matter remains – the footprints exist and warrant evaluation. A sample of over 100 footprint casts and over 50 photographs of footprints and casts was assembled and examined, as well as several examples of fresh footprints. – Dr. Meldrum, PhD, Professor of Anatomy and Anthropology at Idaho State university (source)

The quote above is a truth that is commonly ignored when it comes to this phenomenon. If you believe these footprints are a hoax, ask yourself, why would multiple academicians waste their time studying them? Why are these prints found in some of the most remote forested areas miles and miles away from any type of human civilization?

“It’s not that scientists are out there looking for it and can’t find it, scientists are looking the other way.” – Dr. John Bindernagel, Ph.D, Wildlife Biologist.

This fear is a major problem today with the scientific examination of fringe topics.

The human race has always been fascinated with legends like Bigfoot and other types of giant. Perhaps this comes from our acceptance that giants have existed throughout human history. One example of giant humanoids comes from 1883, when the Smithsonian (United States government/military led organization) dispatched a team of archaeologists to the South Charleston Mound. The report indicates that the team uncovered numerous giants from 7 to 9 feet tall. They were decorated with heavy copper bracelets and other religious/cultural items. The report also indicated some of them had a skull that was of “the compressed or flat-head type.” This would resemble similar skeletal characteristics to those found in South America and Egypt. (source)

Another example comes from 1774, when settlers found what they called “The Giant Town,” which housed several gigantic skeletons, one being an eight foot tall male. (source) And don’t forget about all of the stories of giants roaming the Earth in ancient mythology.

“The eyes of that species of extinct Giant, whose bones fill the Mounds of America, have gazed on Niagara, as ours do now.” – Abraham Lincoln, 1848 (source)

(There are also curious extinct apes that were huge, like Gigantopithecus.)

Possible Footage

From Dr. Meldrum:

In October 1967, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin claimed to have captured on film a female Bigfoot retreating across a loamy sandbar on Bluff Creek, in northern California. The film provides a view of the plantar surface of the subject’s foot, as well as several unobstructed views of step cycles. In addition to a prominent elongated heel, a midtarsal break is apparent during midstance and considerable flexion of the midtarsus can be seen during the swing phase. The subject left a long series of deeply impressed footprints. Patterson cast single examples of a right and a left footprint. The next day the site was visited by Robert Laverty, a timber management assistant and his sales crew. He took several photographs including one of a footprint exhibiting a pronounced pressure ridge in the midtarsal region. This same footprint, along with nine others in a series, was cast two weeks later by Bob Titmus, a Canadian taxidermist. A model of inferred skeletal anatomy is proposed here to account for the distinctive midtarsal pressure ridge and “half-tracks” in which the heel impression is absent. In this model the Sasquatch foot lacks a fixed longitudinal arch, but instead exhibits a high degree of midfoot flexibility at the transverse tarsal joint. Following the midtarsal break, a plastic substrate may be pushed up in a pressure ridge as propulsive force is exerted through the midfoot. An increased power arm in the foot lever system is achieved by heel elongation as opposed to arch fixation. (source)

To this day, experts have not been able to debunk this footage.

Why It’s Okay To Examine This Subject

It’s no secret that serious scientific examinations of topics like Bigfoot are often ridiculed by many mainstream ‘academics.’ At the same time, there are those who do take it seriously, and are at least willing to look at whatever evidence surfaces. For one to completely dismiss and turn a blind eye to data would indeed be ignorant. We must not forget that science often progresses from its examination of what is originally considered as ‘fringe’ to eventually seeing the subject with new eyes. One great example of this is the quantum double slit experiment, a popular experiment used to examine how consciousness and our physical material world are intertwined. You can read more about that here. Today, there is a large consensus within the scientific community that the nature of our reality has its roots in non-physical phenomenon, like consciousness. Although some still disagree, the growing acceptance of this concept and modern day quantum physics itself can be attributed to scientists stepping out of their comfort zones with regards to what they believe to be real.

We’ve also seen the same thing happen with Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), a topic that in the past was heavily ridiculed, but is now officially disclosed as real in multiple countries and by many politicians, high ranking military personnel, academicians, and more. (To learn more about that, you can click here.) Perhaps this is something we are also going to see in the field of Bigfoot research?

The point I am trying to make is that it’s the job of science to examine evidence, and not turn away from it. If there is a sufficient amount of evidence to support a topic that is extremely fringe, it should at least be examined before it’s subjected to ridicule, no matter how crazy the topic seems.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

Before you begin...

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
