Jesus and Bigfoot


In a previous recent blog, “Do Right Wingers Hate Bigfoot?,” one comment was made by Amdusias: “On the subject of Jesus and Bigfoot, I have marveled for some time at how much the image on the Shroud of Turin resembles the portrayal of Bigfoot from the Six Million Dollar Man TV series. There must be a connection between that show and DiVinci’s Priory.” (Hopefully, it was left with the same sense of humor you are now reading it. If you don’t have a sense of humor about popular cultural images regarding Jesus or Bigfoot, read no further.)

But I think upon a closer look, most people would have to disagree with Amdusias’ projection:


Perhaps this is seen more clearly when comparing their figurines?


It also turns out, there is an intriguing-looking wood carving of a Sasquatch at a Christian bookstore called “Just Jesus,” near Legget, California. This has caused at least one commentator to call this statue the “Jesus Bigfoot.”


Jesus Bigfoot

Humm. Nayyyy.


Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
