Ugh, here we go again. From Loren Coleman’s blog Cryptomundo comes news that some amazing Bigfoot evidence is about to be revealed, and they are claiming that it will be the “most convincing evidence of Bigfoot” since the Patterson-Gimlim footage. So why am I not too excited? Read the press release below to see why (and just as Loren Coleman did, I’m leaving in the bad spelling and grammatical errors).
For Immediate Release

Now this is a pretty lofty claim. The Patterson-Gimlin footage is some of the best visual evidence yet for the existence of Bigfoot, and yet the scientific community at large still isn’t convinced, and perhaps rightly so. A film alone is not “proof,” just part of a bigger tapestry of evidence supporting these claims. So color me unimpressed by this “breaking news” of some smudges on a pickup truck window that kinda sorta look like half of a Bigfoot face. These investigators may be earnest. They may believe that this is a Bigfoot face. But I’m guessing what they are seeing is just matrixing. Matrixing happens all the time. People see faces in photos where there is just a random pattern. People see shapes in clouds. People see Jesus in their French toast. The brain tries to make order out of chaos. And if you are Bigfoot hunting and looking for evidence of Bigfoot, and see some random smudges that look like the very thing you are hunting, well, there you go. The smudges are probably just random smudges, but perhaps an animal such as a bear, elk, or other wet-nosed animal was curious and left these smudges. Or maybe it was indeed a Bigfoot. But smudges do not equal proof. Unless these guys have something spectacular that they didn’t mention in the press release (say, a dead body that isn’t in a cooler), then this will end up as just another sad chapter in cryptozoology.
