We had a very dramatic sighting reported to us two days ago, which you can read about on the Sasquatch Sightings page of this website. As I interviewed the witness I was once again struck by how life-changing an experience like this can be - particularly when the Squatch is seen at close range, in broad daylight, and standing completely still in the middle of the trail. "Paradigm Shift" is what I would refer to it as, meaning that after a sighting like this, everything you've ever known (or believed you knew) about the world is suddenly turned upside down. Most people have heard of Bigfoot or Sasquatch at some point in their lifetime, and probably dismissed it as a myth, or the product of too much alcohol or pot (or both). "Finding Bigfoot" and "Monster Quest" are just more examples of delusional rednecks seeing imaginary creatures... until someone has a sighting of their own. Then, in literally the blink of an eye they go from skeptic to traumatized believer, and life will never be the same.
I honestly don't understand the skeptics out there who insist on making snide comments on our Sasquatch Outpost Facebook page about bears walking around on two legs, or the increase in sightings since pot was legalized. My personal theory is that they secretly WANT to believe, and they go on our Facebook page to read the latest information, but can't resist the temptation to comment on someone's posting. The mountain of scientific evidence for the existence of Sasquatch is quite literally overwhelming... if someone will ever take the time to examine the evidence with an open mind. "Sasquatch can't be real, so there's no point in looking at any "supposed" evidence" is often the reply I get from Skeptics. But every day the volume of evidence continues to grow - more tracks, better recordings of vocalizations, mounting DNA evidence, increasing numbers of eye-witness sightings. I know that most will never believe unless a body can be produced, but that will be a sad day; the human-Sasquatch link is so profound that the poor sod who brings a dead Bigfoot out into the open might end up being charged with murder. We'll see. Until such a time arrives, we'll just keep quietly doing our research, believing that vindication is only a matter of time.
