Sasquatch: The Evidence
This is a scene from the controversial Patterson-Gimlin film of a sasquatch, or bigfoot, taken in 1967 in California. Many critics called the film a hoax despite the fact that leading special effects experts were unable to figure out how the film could have been so brilliantly faked. Protracted analysis of the film has shown that no human being could possibly duplicate either the proportions of the film's subject or its specific patterns of movement. Footprints found at the scene were so deep and far apart over rough terrain that they could only have been made by an agile, powerful animal weighing six hundred pounds. The Indians of the Pacific Northwest have known of sasquatch for many generations: a pre-Columbian sculpture of a sasquatch foot from Lillooet, B.C., conforms closely to modern forensic footprint evidence. While no living specimen has been collected by western scientists, the preponderance of biological and carefully analyzed photographic evidence makes it clear that an undiscovered two-legged giant primate stalks the Pacific forests of North America.

the scientific community often tends to treat
investigations into extraordinary phenomena as
pseudoscience not on grounds of methodological integrity
but of subject matter alone. This ... does not agree with
the scientific method. Science is a dispassionate process
by which any subject matter may be freely and
legitimately investigated ... [it] does not tolerate
taboos, a priori
judgments, circular reasoning, ridicule or double
standards ... In science, one point of view requires as much
impeccable proof or disproof as another."
J. Carlotto, Ph.D.
