The best evidence of Big Foot yet

  1. Nov 14, 2011 #1
    Scientists have http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/3933034/Bigfoot-Weve-found-the-best-evidence-Yeti.html" [Broken] what they claim to be the best evidence for the bigfoot yet discovered.

    The best evidence for bigfoot is the money spent on books perpetuating the myth. I don't mean to sound cynical, but, a little DNA evidence would be nice - like a legbone somebody's dog drug up onto the porch.

    Twisted trees as the most compelling evidence of big foot dint impress me either, but, the reporting being done by "The Sun" made me want to get comments from the community.

    The Big Foot myth is a great example of how not to do science. Rather than think "how could these trees have been formed" someone has concluded "it must be this unevidenced myth".

    Those two trees have been caught in the act. How embarrassing.

    Woah, I actually missed the evidence on first pass. I kept scrolling down to see the "evidence," I didn't realize the bent-over tree was it.

    I'm having a really hard time figuring out what is going on in the story.

    Okay, so they got the view from the guy who doesn't think it's bigfoot.

    So, who said this? There's only one person in the story other than "experts."

    Little help?

    EDIT: Or is bigfoot not a mammal now? Or can he do things a man can't? Or... what is being suggested by the first quote?
