Believe it or Not: Bigfoot How Bigfoot came about is a mystery. We know that there have been many sightings of Bigfoot, stories told of him all over the world, close encounters with the creature, and footprints found. We do not have, however, actual proof that Bigfoot is real. No one has ever captured one or killed one. Bigfoot may or may not be real, but there is always the possibility that he could be lurking around in the woods somewhere. Maybe he is near you. Bigfoot is known by many names. These names differ from place to place where he is sighted. Over in the Himalayas he is known as the Yeti or the Abominable Snowman. He is also known by these names in the North around Canada and Alaska. Around further south, around the Mideast, he is known in general as Bigfoot or Sasquatch. In the Midwest he was more commonly known as the Wild Man of the Woods. Even further south, as in Florida, he is called the Skunk Ape. Of all the people who have claimed to see Bigfoot the description in the reports are virtually the same. The creature is anywhere from 6 feet tall to 9 feet tall. They have long, muscular arms, wide shoulders, large hands with opposable thumbs, barrel chested, with a human like face and eyes, and of course, they had large feet. Other people also say that the creature is covered in hair, not fur, but the face is still visible. No one is sure if any reports specify if the creature has ears. We are also still unsure of the exact color of Bigfoot. The witnesses have been in argument over whether the hair of Bigfoot is black, dark brown, or a reddish color. Bigfoot has mainly been sighted in all states of America, including Alaska and Hawaii. The main areas where sightings occur are along the edge of the west coast, and in the Middle East to the Atlantic Ocean. Some reports of sightings even come from the Northeastern parts of Canada (Campbell). Bigfoot has mainly been seen in forests and woodsy areas. Based on maps of Bigfoot sightings, he stays very far away from heavily populated areas, but can be seen around small towns out in the country even if there are no trees. There have also been reports of Bigfoot being in national parks such as Yellowstone, and in swamps in Florida. Anywhere you go there has probably been a Bigfoot sighting somewhere nearby you. On June twenty second, a 19-year-old, freshman college student was driving on a curvy road near Rhinebeck, New York, on the way to a professional rehearsal. He noticed something blocking his path in the road. He tried to swerve away so he wouldn’t hit it. When he looked in his rearview mirror he saw the something in the road was a box and a plastic bag but then he noticed something walking on two feet like a human. The college kid described it as being covered in black hair, having broad muscular arms and shoulders and upward facing palms. The creature did not attack him nor did it seem interested in him. It simply just walked away on its two legs and into the woods out of sight (Animal Planet). “A lack of evidence does not mean a lack of existence,” (Bigfootfieldreporter.com). The oral stories that have been passed down didn’t just appear out of thin air. While it’s true that these stories could be completely fictional, but it is more likely based off of an actually event. Why? Because rather than creating images from their minds, prehistoric man usually drew, told stories, and warned about real things that they’ve seen or heard. Many believe that Bigfoot does not exist, and that people should not believe that he exists based solely on the fact that we have found footprints that we think belong to Bigfoot. However, many professional teams, amateur teams, and even common everyday people have gone searching for this mysterious monster and have found things such as tracks and footprints. Some people have even found the same things, but smaller in size than the originals, which leads specialists to believe that those may be tracks of a female and child…
A friendly hello once in awhile does not harm anyone. I believe that if you greet a person with a pleasant smile and genuine “hello” and a “how are you doing?” you can make their whole day much better. It is the simple act of kindness that everyone is able to show.
Once while standing in the long line for the checkout at Wal-Mart, I noticed the cashier looked very tired and upset, and all the customers were in a rush to buy their things and leave. It was just a busy day, and rarely a few…
My current view on Bigfoot is that he is an imaginary creature. I never sat and thought about my belief on him, I just grew up seeing him on commercials, or on cartoons, or read thing about him on the Internet.
In the first Wikipedia article I felt the most important piece information was that Bigfoot is described in reports as a large hairy ape-like creature, ranging between 6-10 feet tall, weighing in excess of 500 pounds, and covered in dark brown or dark reddish hair…
I Believe In finding A Way Out Of The Darkness
Every person in this world has tragedies take place in their lives, some tragedies are greater than others, but that does not mean they don’t impact them the same way, they are all devastating nevertheless. These tragedies can turn life into a lifeless, dark, and confiding cave, making it seem there’s no way out until you die. I believe in being able to find the way out, though the dark cave may seem deceptive, you may have lost all hope but one…

I Believe in Summertime
Summer is a time when I am playing soccer, swimming and having no worries.
Being able to be a stupid teenager and do stupid things with stupid teenagers. A time when the
sun is out and I am ecstatic. Summer is by far my favorite time of the year. I spend a lot of my
time traveling and going to music festivals. I believe that summer just isn’t a time where there is
no school, but a time to bring your family together…
The Will To Believe
The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by
altering their attitude and Mind. The greatest revolution of our generation is the
discovery that human beings, by changing the inner Attitudes of their minds can change
the outer aspects of their lives. Our experiences and feelings are mainly
relate to our bodies…
This I Believe
There has only ever been one thing I can truly say I have strongly believed in my entire life; the batman. Now, I’m not saying that I believe there’s a man running around a city wearing a batsuit defeating super villains on a daily basis, but that someone, as long as they put everything they have into life, can be a hero.
Batman was everywhere when I was growing up. He was on my notebooks, my toothbrush, my pajama pants.. I even had a batman costume (cape included) that I wore…
I believe in dreams. Dreams are the foundations of our life today. Many of the great things we have today were created first in dreams. Dreams are a portal to reality. If people didn’t dream where would we be.
I BELIEVE IN DREAMS
Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream. A dream that people will one day live in a nation where people will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Madame C.J. Walker had a dream in which a guy told her what to mix together…
I believe that happiness is a choice. It is the result of the decisions we make every day, not something that merely falls on us by chance. In our culture, it is easy to assume that happiness is linked to material possessions. We often have thoughts like, “If I just had a nicer car… If I had more money… or If I had a boyfriend/girlfriend… Then, I would be happy”. These thoughts relegate your happiness to some arbitrary event. But your happiness is too important to be left to chance.
I believe in God. I follow him and trust him to lead me through life and I am not alone. Almost everyone has created a spiritual god within their minds to turn to in times of need or simply to make sense of unanswered questions. “The desire for guidance, love, and support prompts men to form the social or moral conception of God.” – Albert Einstein
Men, meaning humans in general, desire guidance. They want someone to look up to, take after, someone who will help lead them through life when…
