Complete Statement from all of the admins of www.facebook/findbigfoot
The mission of FB/FB has been to curate and analyze all of the evidence regarding the existence of Sasquatch. We have cataloged and analyzed Bigfoot videos to foster a conversation toward understanding their morphology and existence. We have featured hundreds of responsible researchers and witnesses and the compelling information that could give. We endeavored to be responsible and ethical at every turn, treating everyone respectfully.
We are aware, as many of you are, that Bigfoot exists throughout North American forests and look forward to moving the conversation beyond “Does Bigfoot Exist?” to “How are we related to Sasquatch?”
We recognize the need for a specimen to start the new conversation. No amount of video will ever prove that a creature as controversial as Sasquatch exists. We feel we have spent more time curating the evidence than any other group and we are confident in our theories. The power of a social network is incredible.
Are we shutting FB/FB down? No. The “Night Video” in Shooting Bigfoot is compelling and all admins believe it to be authentic. Unfortunately the FB/FB forum is now so toxic that it is unproductive. Our mission has never been to ban the opposing voices. Until we all have definitive proof of what happened on 9/6/2012 in San Antonio Texas we are suspending operations. We feel this best for all.
In the opening of Morgan Matthews’ documentary, “Shooting Bigfoot” he shows Ivan Marx and establishes hoaxers as a part of the Bigfoot Research history. Matthews acknowledges Rick Dyer and Tom Biscardi as hoaxers in 2008, yet he follows them. At the end of the film Morgan is pushed to the ground and injured by something he cannot describe. He reminds the viewing audience that Rick Dyer has hoaxed before, shows the camper video and then contrasts it with his severe injuries from an attack of tremendous force. Morgan doesn’t claim or prove that Dyer hoaxed him. In fact, the film ends abruptly for the audience to decide if he was involved in or a victim of a hoax or a real event.
Morgan edited the film as a cliffhanger, but he surely knows the answer about the body and events of that night. That Sasquatch either exists or it does not exist. Yet he remains silent on the topic. That should give us all pause…. Why?
We have spent a great deal of time following this story, and investing thousands dollars and hundreds of hours of investigations. We have nothing to gain, receiving only pain and derision for our position. If we have been hoaxed, it is more brilliant than we can possibly fathom.
We stand by our analysis of the Camper Tent and now the “Matthews/Dyer Night Video” and the account of Musky Allen. We see no evidence of a brilliant hoax by Matthews and Dyer.
Rick Dyer recently stated that a Bigfoot body will be shown to the world on 8/15/2013. If that promise is held true, that date seems to be a perfect time to start the new conversation, “How are we related to Bigfoot? and what great truth can be learned from their existence.” If there’s no body and this has been a brilliant Rick Dyer hoax, then the FBFB Page will frozen in time forever as evidence of that event.
We are against censorship and feel strongly that preserving the hundreds of thousands of user comments and posts. Just because a handful of hate-filled fomenters that are hell bent on burning everything is no reason to erase years of work. We have experienced this first hand with the organized and mindless take down of our YouTube channel.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation interviewed Morgan Matthews this week and when he was asked if he believed in Bigfoot.
Here his how Morgan answers the big question:
Interviewer from CBC: “Do you believe BF exists?”
Morgan: (hesitation) It’s…it’s a difficult question.
Interviewer from CBC: “Really?”
Morgan Matthews: (turns question back on interviewer without answering her question) “Do YOU believe he exists?”
Interviewer from CBC: “NO! What is this like Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny?”
Morgan Matthews: (interrupts) “Sorry I think the world is a better place if people believed Bigfoot is out there.”
We couldn’t agree more!
To our true Fans, we hope to dialogue with you again soon. Thank you for your support and patience with the negative comments on FB/FB. You can reach us at Teamyin@gmail.com. Till then, we will work on an update to our book and may quietly re-upload our lost content to the facebookfindbigfoot YouTube channel.
