Aliens and Bigfoot?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on March 23rd, 2012

Premiering tonight on H2 at 9 PM Central.

Aliens and Bigfoot
Premiere Date: 03/23/2012

People on every continent have claimed to see the footprints of Bigfoot. And ancient myths and legends speak of an ape-like giant stalking the earth. What if, as Ancient Astronaut theorists believe, there is evidence to connect Bigfoot with an alien species that once visited Earth in the distant past?

Re-airing before that at 8PM Central.

Aliens and Monsters

Hindu scripture describes an enormous flying creature called a Garuda that shook the ground when it landed on Earth. Is it possible that this monster was actually a misinterpreted alien craft? Are hybrids like the Centaur, the Minotaur and Medusa just mythical creatures of fantasy–or could these ancient depictions of terrifying monsters have been the result of advanced extraterrestrial transplantation procedures?

Be sure to come back after the episode airs to share your thoughts about it with the other Cryptomundians!

    I’m on it..and DVR ing this!

    This show drives my Art History teaching college professor father nuts. His students are now literally arguing with him that the information given in Ancient Aliens is 100% factual and he has his information is wrong after teaching this topic for 40 years. This makes for fun holdiay meals……
    An interesting paradigm shift taking place in America. Ancient Aliens is now the gospel truth. Giorgio Tsoukalos must be so proud.

  3. WinterIsComing responds:

    Can you explain it? I can’t explain it! ALIENS!

    Oh Giorgio….lol

    Hello πŸ™‚

    I have only watched a little bit of “Ancient Aliens”, I wished I could watch more (dont have cable). But I would agree that its standard fare is in many, perhaps mind-boggling ways, not chiding with mainstream history (and in this vein i’m not using mainstream in a negative way). I remember the episode I watched was on angels and demons (I, being an “Mainstream Christian” do strongly , strongly differ with the angel/alien theory, but it was an interesting bit of speculation. Wrong, but interesting)

    What exactly are these debates between your father and the students about? I’m curious as to what the topics were (I love history and the paranormal, and going to College I was involved in a few casual debates).

    As for a possible Bigfoot UFO connection: There have been occasions where Sasquatch and UFOs have been associated. This could explain why none have ever been bagged by a bullet, killed by a vehicle, or caught in a bear trap or Dead fall (the road and trap factors are hard to explain).

  5. Desertdweller responds:

    I find the whole “Ancient Aliens” premise to have been amusing at first, but it has turned tiresome. Anything innovative in our past gets credited to “them”.

    I think this “Ancient Aliens” concept is being promoted as a New Age religion. And a not very credible one, at that.

    Let’s see some scientific evidence of this concept. It is too much of a jump to go from precisely engineered stone Lego Blocks to genetic engineering of humans.

  6. airforce47 responds:


    The program was interesting but not definitive. I can say from own personal experiences that there may be a connection between UFOs and Bigfoot but what that connection is and how it interacts with the species is unknown.

    The program presented some interesting theories and that was about it. It would be interesting to hear what Kathy Strain thought of it or Loren. I suspect their opinion may be close to my own.

  7. darkhb responds:

    I watch the show because it is amusing and thought-provoking; even if it often veers into the incredulous. The episode last week about Puma Punku was extremely interesting. The Bigfoot episode, to be charitable, was nonsense.

    Plus I also tune in every week to watch Giorgio transforming before our very eyes into Londo Molari, (Babylon Five), or if David Childress’ accent gets even weirder!

  8. gridbug responds:

    Personally, I don’t see how angels could be anything BUT otherworldly messengers of an extraterrestrial origin. When you cut right to the chase, the bible is simply a very very old storybook of fables and morality tales that has been rewritten and edited dozens of times to fit the church’s agenda. No more, and no less. Faith does not equal fact, whether it’s the Virgin Mary appearing in a hallway or Sasquatch crossing the road, though it must be said that there is far and away more circumstantial evidence that supports the existence of Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Yeti etc than there is for God/Angels etc. Disclaimer: I went to Catholic schools for the whole of my childhood and even into my first two years of high school, but the older I got the more I realized just how much the bible stories didn’t hold water. It’s one thing to believe in something in order to seek comfort, but when the very things you put your faith in amount to little more than heavily rewritten recollections from thousands of years ago, the only responsible recourse you have is to question it with some good old fashioned critical thinking. Do I think “aliens” are the answer? More than likely, yes. There’s just too much throughout human history that has yet to be satisfactorily explained, and for my two cents, the bible stories just ain’t cutting it. No offense to the true believers, of course.

  9. springheeledjack responds:

    I’ve run across linkings like this before. Not sure what started it all–was it that BF reports and UFO reports appeared in the same area and so they were linked? Or time frame or both? I do not believe that UFO reports follow BF sightings very often or I would have thought we’d heard of it coinciding more often.

    At present, I’m just assuming the conspiracy theorists are just trying to intertwine more than one odd medium…

    Next on H2: Proof that Jesus rilly did the loaves/fishes thang. Kewl!

  11. bigfoot_kicked_my_nards responds:

    on ancient aliens:

    when i first heard about the theory i was intrigued. and really, one cannot definitively disprove an extended visit from intelligent ETs at some point in the past. if such a visit were deep enough in the past we could never really know. so again, i was intrigued…

    …and then i saw “ancient aliens” on the HC.

    what immediately became clear after a few episodes was the tendency of ancient alien theorists to wander too far afield and attempt to connect the theory to anything and everything. it’s always suspect when a theory has an answer for any question you can throw at it. the only idea that seems to be the exception to this rule is evolution by natural selection, which has had staggering and far-reaching consequences across several branches of science and piles on more evidence by the second. but, i digress.

    also, this theory grossly underestimates human creativity and imagination. when our early ancestors didn’t understand natural phenomenon, they certainly had the ability to invent supernatural explanations. and they certainly had the ability to speak (or write, or sculpt, or carve) metaphorically. the theory seems to suggest that any mention of god-like beings were to be taken literally. don’t buy it.

  12. Hapa responds:


    “Personally, I don’t see how angels could be anything BUT otherworldly messengers of an extraterrestrial origin.”

    Well, to say that angels are “otherworldly” and of extraterrestrial origin might imply to most that they are from another planet: In the Bible angels are presented as from Heaven, specifically the third Heaven, not the first Heaven (the sky) nor the second (the starry realm where planets are found). Being spirits who can appear and dissappear at will, take on multiple forms, might impress some as being evidence of aliens with super-technology and odd biology, but if one were to put a more science-based face on angels, one would have to say they are Otherworldly in the sense of a extra-UNIVERSAL being or an extra-Dimensional being, something from a plane of existence that mankind cannot break into yet.

    “No offense to true believers, of course.”

    It’s okay. Bill Maher does a lot worse LOL.

    @ darkhb

    DUUUDE!! I thought I was the only person who thought of Londo when they saw him. There is a meme with Giorgio showing his ‘transformation’ over the years, hysterical.

    @ all

    As for the Ancient Aliens program. I thought the series was interesting at first but it’s become ridiculous. Their ‘god of the gaps’ is literally UFOS. Instead of “God did it” it becomes “Aliens did it” and that to me is equally unacceptable. We have brains, technology and curiosity we should use them to discover more about our world, our past and each other. Not put down any (currently) unknown to God, gods, aliens or what have you.

    They take artefacts which have been examined and explained by many others already and insist they are things that they aren’t. “This could be a helicopter” – well, sure, to someone in the 20th century it ‘could’ be. It could also be one of many examples of palimpsest that are actually known and proven to have occurred all over the ancient world. The show is amusing in that “it’s 3am and I can’t fall asleep again” sort of way, but the thought that college students are arguing with their professor using ‘facts’ from this show is both disappointing and befuddling. I can see it being a good starting point for a healthy discussion, but WHO would take information from a TV show and assume it was correct? I can only think of a hand full of shows/stations that I would trust such as BBC Documentaries (still I fact check) Nat Geo and Mythbusters.

  14. William responds:

    I hope I don’t offend anyone reading this but when watching this prograrm I could not help but chuckle at the illustrated recreation of what one supposed witness told one of the program’s participants, specifically they were out in the mountain and saw trees shaking as if from a violent wind and then a silver disc appear and a door open up and a bigfoot was let out onto the ground which walked right by the observer without taking notice.

    For some reason I just thought this was pretty funny. I could hear the aliens now giving instructions to the BF – go get em big boy, drive those suckers crazy with your footprints, howls, and disappearing acts! Specifically, make Moneymaker,Cliff and Bobo look like fools!

  15. Hapa responds:


    BTW: There is a whole slew of apologetical works that defend the accounts of the Bible, as well as defend the Bible period, but this would be the wrong place to mention some of their greatest defenses of the Faith. However, a good few books come to mind:

    The Apologetics Study Bible (English Standard Version)
    the Case for a Creator, the Case for Christ, the Case for Faith (all by Lee Strobel)
    The Archeological Study Bible (New International Version)
    IVP Bible Background Commentaries (one for Old, one for New Testament)
    Ralph O Muncaster’s series of apologetical works (don’t know what the whole collection is called, but I have a lot of his works. Not without flaws, but a good resource if you have any of them. The “Can Archeology prove the Old Testament” and “Can Archeology Prove the New Testament” are excellent short works on Biblical verification)

    Hope this helps.

  16. flame821 responds:

    Being that I often write stories to keep myself occupied, I’ve come up with a solution for the Bigfoot/UFO link.

    Aliens have been reported abducting humans for years, maybe they’re abducting the Bigfoot too. Humans have a pretty lengthy history of being taken for medical experiments or detailed physical exams (not validating them, just saying they are reported) going back at least to Betty and Barney Hill. Maybe these same aliens are examining Bigfoot in the same manner…..OR, if you really want to go out there. Maybe the aliens decided to try a captive breeding program amongst primates and mixed humans with gorillas and thus Bigfoot was created, or cloned. (we won’t get into the horrible, misshapen ‘accidents’ that may or may not have survived) They didn’t know what to do with this strange result so they figured the best thing to do would be release them in their natural habitat.

    Half got released in human civilization, the rest in gorilla social groups. Humans panicked and killed most of the strange creatures although a few did escape into the deep forest where humans feared to venture. The others lived along side their gorilla kin for a while, learning their ways then, when their numbers were strong enough, broke off from the group to form their own social clan.

    And it makes as much sense as anything else I’ve heard regarding Bigfoot and UFOs. πŸ˜‰

  17. DWA responds:


    No kidding.

    I came back when I saw SIXTEEN COMMENTS.

    Um, folks. Folks, folks, folks.

    Taking two things unconfirmed by science – one of which we lack any way of proving until an extraterrestrial meets with Obama on live TV – ain’t science.

  18. DWA responds:

    Whoops. Let me rewrite my last sentence:

    Taking two things unconfirmed by science – one of which we lack any way of proving until an extraterrestrial meets with Obama on live TV – and acting like it’s logical to link them, when really it only makes both unpalatable to people who care about science – ain’t science.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
