Having lived by myself in the hammocks (swamps) of Florida for over 5 years my experiences make me one of the believers. If this man in fact has a body he is a fool to sit on it for so long. It would be the anthropological upset of the last three centuries. Not to mention being worth millions. It would blow duck dynasty off the airwaves. Is that enough Luffe? hi5-3:

I'm not inclined to believe anything from Rick Dyer; not after his 2008 bigfoot hoax. If you use a bit of google-fu you'll find that the experts aren't impressed at all.

Another thing that ticks me off is that he would waste several hundred dollars worth produce to push yet another hoax while there are little children starving even in our own country. If this is indeed another hoax like before then I think this man should be taken out in the woods and shot himself. People like him shouldn't be allowed to breed!

If you really want a thrill there are some areas of the Sierra Madres in California the native Americans will not go. According to their legend there was a war between the indians and the bigfoot many many years ago. Eventually a truce was reached and now the indians will not go into the areas controlled by bigfoot and vice versa. Quite an animal from the descriptions; capable of carrying two 400lb hogs, one under each arm while stepping over a barbed wire fence, using fire, running up a 45 degree incline, lifting full sized trees and shoving them deeply into the ground with the rootball facing up to mark their territory and causing adult grizzleys to flee.

This is an actual Native American site Amira. It is not a site where people are claiming things that may or may not be true or have some agenda in saying what they say:

I am one of those who don't believe these stories are myths or made up fantasies. I believe they in fact have their basis in truthful observations and realities that although scarcely experienced by whites are common ocurrences to native Americans who have a much more intimate relationship with the natural world which the whites have lost. Frequently in historic literature you find indigenous peoples described as primitive, ignorant or uncivilised. Perhaps someday I will find what the word actually means instead of "not like us". As a youth I read Hawaii by James Michener more than once. Already a religious skeptic by the age of 10, the description of what was done to a happy and productive culture by the Christian missionaries was enough to put me over the edge to what would best be described as an angry agnostic. Unlike organised religions whose purpose is to indoctrinate, native culture lore is simply meant to inform and educate, leaving the individual to engage in first hand observation. A much more "spiritual" approach in my opinion.

Mmm someone who I can talk to. Would love to chat about all these stuff as you menthioned. Primative yes, as we have a tribe, The San people who are still primitive here. Lives in the bush, with loin cloths and hunt with bows. They were the first people here, when Jan Van Riebeeck came to Cape Town. And now they are being outcast by the other tribes as nothing. So yes, as we have 11 tribes and 11 languages, we do get them. Africa is a big continent and alot are still yet to be discovered.

Unlike organised religions whose purpose is to indoctrinate, native culture lore is simply meant to inform and educate, leaving the individual to engage in first hand observation. A much more "spiritual" approach in my opinion.

I went through a period of reading Michener and others who wrote the same sort of books when I was a teen and kind of had the same reaction. I decided there was something wrong with the dogma I was hearing when I was 8. But the thing that really set me off was reading "Aztec" by Jennings (a most excellent book, btw) about what happened to the Aztecs when Hernan Cortez came with his armada. It opened my eyes bigtime to the skewed versions of history we are taught in grade-school and beyond. You'd have thought the explorers were some kind of saints, the way they told it in 5th grade. Never mind Christopher Columbus and what he did to the tribes he encountered.

I draw a distinction between being 'religious' and being 'spiritual'. You can be the latter without being the former. Yes indeed, we westerners  living in our big cities have most certainly lost touch with the natural world - unless we make an effort to visit it and appreciate it for what it is. That's why I went to a Native American site for the stories, because what you say is true regarding their stories ABM...all native people's stories. They're events and relations passed down between generations and actual experiences. It's a crime how they are treated. My great-great grandmother was Cherokee but listed on the census as 'white' and my mother never even knew her great grandma was Native American. No one would admit to it. :(
