Possible Bigfoot Sign Language

In my last post I discussed the possibility of bigfoot using tools. Here is an example from bfro of bigfoot using simple tools.
  I also believe that bigfoot has a sign language. It is a language that uses the whole body and not just the hands. By using the body, it can be seen at a distance, allowing bigfoots to communicate silently without being close up. Here is an example of a bigfoot trying to communicate to a human. I think what bf was trying to say was "Do not come any closer, I could easily put you down.  I am going to turn around and walk away, but not out of fear."
   Bigfoot are often reported as swaying back and forth. Could it be possible that this has meaning? Maybe it is a greeting or  a friendly response to a greeting or an indication of a willingness to communicate.

Foreheads and Bangs

The new header image is one that I found on one of my cds that contained some images that I had saved and forgot about. I had a problem with my computer and had lost a bunch of images. I thought this was one of them. Luckily I had saved it. It is a version of one I called "Drink This".  In fact this is the original version. The version I have on my facebook page and picasa are modifications. After I found this image, I liked it so much that I decided to use it for my header.

  The last post I did, Comparing Bigfoot and Neanderthal, I said that homo ergaster was in my opinion, the closest fossil man to bigfoot.
The more I look at Patty and other images of bigfoot that I believe are real, the more I am beginning to think that there is one even more closer to bigfoot. That is homo sapiens. Looking at Patty from the side it does not appear that she has a brow ridge like erectus and his forebears. In fact some reports have mentioned the fact that the subject (I don't like to use the word "creature" or "animal") has a forehead just like ours. One report is Tim Peelers experience. I have read the same thing in other reports. The problem is that bigfoot's forehead is usually covered with hair, often described as "bangs". These bangs sometimes look like they had been trimmed. If bigfoot trims his hair then he must be a tool user. In fact it has been pointed out that many shaped stone objects that have been found and attributed to Indians may have belonged to bigfoot. The author of this blog has some interesting material along these lines.
Just because Bigfoot is primitive does not mean that he is an animal. Due to his appearance, he is pretty much isolated from human contact. This prevents him from learning new technology from humans. Consider the case of the Tasmanians.

Neanderthal and Bigfoot

There was a recent report on bfro's site about an observation of a bigfoot through binoculars. One of the details of the description of the creature I found very interesting because I had been reading about the anatomical features of Neanderthals. The shape of the elbow as described by the observer is a feature of Neanderthal anatomy. This was surprising to me because I consider Neanderthals to be one of the least likely candidates for bigfoot. Neanderthals tended to be short with big noses and big long heads.They were also barrel chested and thick bodied much as has been decribed for bigfoot.In order for bigfoot to evolve from neanderthals, he would have to grow in height, his head would have to shrink and change shape. This is possible. Or he could have mixed with other types like Heidelbergensis or Cro Magnons.He might have simply evolved from the same roots that neanderthal evolved from. I think the last is most probable.

If we consider bigfoot to be a descendent of Neanderthals or even of Homo erectus, then we have a problem. These ancient men used fire and made stone tools. Bigfoot has never been seen with either fire or any kind of tool, other than a stick.

 Forty thousand years ago, or thereabouts, Cro-Magnon and Neanderthals discovered each other. We know from DNA research that they interbred. One thing that new people bring with them is their diseases. The Neanderthals got sick from a disease that Cro=Magnon had resistence to, and it wiped them out, except for a few old women and a few children. These were the Cro-Magnon women that had become the mates of the neaderthals and their half-breed children. These individuals survived because they had resistence to the disease because of their Cro-Magon genes. Knowing that the disease was acquired from the Cro-Magnons, they retreated to the mountains and wild places to avoid them. They had no tools or other technology and no knowledge of how to make them. But they managed to survive and adapted to the wilderness. They essentially went wild.The result is the creature we call "Bigfoot".

This is just a supposition but I think something like this may have happenened.

By the way, Neanderthals had huge noses and big heads. There are mythological creatures that also have huge noses and big heads. They were called "trolls".

Are trolls really a myth? I wonder if trolls were Neanderthals? Except trolls were giants. Maybe trolls were giant Neanderthals. Maybe bigfoot is a troll.

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.
