The Origin of Bigfoot

Is Bigfoot a Neandertal? Some people have suggested that Almasty are Neandertals and we suppose that Bigfoot is similar to them. I don't think so, because Neandertals had  large heads with a pronounced bulge on the back of their heads. Most descriptions of Bigfoot indicate he has a small head, at least relative to his size. Also Neandertals were not tall but about the size of an ordinary human or shorter.
 My first choice for Bigfoot was Homo Ergaster. He was tall and he has been described as being better adapted to bipedal walking and running than modern man. Of course there has been a lot of changes in the 1.9 million years since Turkana boy walked the earth. According to current thought, Ergaster evolved into Homo Heidelbergensis and Heidelbergensis evolved into two branches, Neandertal and Homo Sapiens. I believe Heidelbergensis also evolved into another branch. This is the branch that gave rise to Bigfoot. This line probably originated in Europe and survivors of these people gave rise to the legends of trolls, and other manlike beings.
The only thing wrong with this theory is that Homo Heidelbergensis was an adept tool maker and we would assume his descendents would be also. Yet There has been no reports of Bigfoot using hand made tools. What's the matter with Bigfoot. Why isn't he making tools?
 I think he has lost his knowledge of tool making because of a recent disaster that reduced his population to such a low level that there were not enough people(Bigfoot people) to maintain and pass on the technical knowledge of tool making to their descendents. In other words Bigfoot has come as close as the skin of his teeth to becoming extinct. This probably was caused by disease. I suspect that during the middle part of the 20th century Bigfoot started to increase his population and was barely saved from extinction. I also suspect that one of the main causes of this increase was the widespread use of DDT. Fleas, mosquitoes and other insects are the main carriers of the diseases that were killing Bigfoot. DDT dramatically cut down on these disease carrying insects and may have saved Bigfoot from extinction.

  2. He probably evolved from some form of Homo erectus, that makes him human(homo means human).I don't know for sure where he came from, but I know he didn't come here from a different planet since he is a mammalian vertebrate, a type that is no doubt unique to earth, even if there are other planets with life, which I doubt.

  3. As far as "Bigfoot" technology goes, there is evidence of them making and using stone and wood tools. Also, there are "suspected" Bigfoot habituation sites where there is evidence of fire being used in a limited way in small caves (some hand built from rock). I can think of another reason Bigfoot would NOT use fire. Smoke can be seen from quite a distance giving away their location. These creatures, whatever they may be are shy, elusive, cunning and self sufficient! They have purportedly been overheard having conversation among themselves. If they are speech capable, they are surely tool capable.

    1. What kind of reasoning says that just because they can speak they can make tools? As of right now, I have yet to find any evidence of tool making or fire being used by sasquatch. I spend hours upon hours researching and the consensus that I have come to find is that fire is not used or found in any areas that are theoretical sasquatch habitats that have been discovered. The premise that the usage of speech equals the definite usage of tools and/or fire is totally unfounded. Cunning? Absolutely. Shy, elusive, undoubtedly the truth.

      Now a question for Mr. Mayes:

      Has anyone thought about the plausibility of sasquatch being a descendant of homo erectus simply from the stand point that erectus was "asian" and listening to the berry/morehead recordings labeled "sierra samurai" the sasquatch that is responding to the man does in fact sound similar to japanese? I dont mean to sound like I'm stereotyping, its just an observation.

  4. Just because we haven't actually seen them using tools and fire doesn't mean that they don't. Yowies are reported to use fire and stone tools. Some cattle mutilations have been reported to have been cut with a razor sharp instrument. Could bigfoot make a razor sharp knife? Yes, there is nothing sharper than a piece of glass. Bigfoot could make a sharp cutting tool out of piece of broken bottle or window pane. Whether he does or not I don't know. one wouldn't recognize a piece of glass as a tool. In fact, any stone tools found would be attributed to Indians.

  5. Good post btw Mr Mayes. Simply from a little research I think that ol Squatch could be an erectus-heidelbergensis hybrid. Only theoretical tho.

  6. I wish anonymous feb 6 would have posted his or her sources I'd like to see the evidence of fire. Btw, habituation sites generally are places where humans have regular encounters with sasquai-which would make fire extremely plausible at those sites-but human made. Take for example the east texas habituation site made known by noels impossible visits on youtube.

  8. I don't think they sound like Japanese at all. Some of their words sound Germanic or Nordic and some sound like latin. This is a subjective interpretation that means very little.

About Me

My Photo
I've lived in the woods and came to know and understand the creatures that inhabit it. I have compassion for all God's creatures, most especially the creature known whimsically as "bigfoot", since he is more like us than any other. I am now an old man and unable to run around in the woods. If I were able I would be out there right now trying to prove his existence. I started this blog to try to express some of the ideas and speculations I have had on bigfoot. I am not into bigfoot social events. I don't gossip about other bloggers. I try to keep myself informed of events. My ideas and opinions are my own and I make no apology for them. They are not written in stone and I welcome any and all civil comments. I am looking for the truth, not fame.
