Gosh, thanks for saying such nice things I will say that I'm not in any hurry (at ALL) to meet Sasquatch! I do forest night hikes several times a week, and already find that somewhat disconcerting at times, even without worrying about BFtheOTyoWAYS777 wrote: ↑Mon Jul 02, 2018 7:37 pmHey in the dark. Im a believer, but really enjoy your posts from a skeptical point of view. You clearly think things through and majority of what you say has merit. As for patty i tend to agree with you but im trying to see it for what others see. Because a lot of good minds in this subject seem to be certain its legit. Anyway, fingers crossed you experience something someday because something tells me you'd be pretty handy on the "believers" side. Ill continue to read your replies with interest and urge you to keep researching. The scene needs people like yaself. Cheers.
Meantime, I try not to pay too much attention to the 'weight of numbers' argument in favour of PGF. Since millions of people believe in gods which almost certainly don't exist (not saying any specific gods do or don't exist ... but clearly they don't all exist), we know that sheer numbers don't really amount to much in terms of evidence, or even likelihoods. When something is sold as reality long and loudly enough, eventually it becomes an article of faith. Faith is belief in the absence of evidence, and is therefore beyond argument. Consequently, I go back to basics. The physiology and behaviour of the animal, the likelihood of the location, and the possible motives of the human/s involved.
