Bigfoot, ESP and The Iceman

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on August 28th, 2013

My good friend Steve Busti, proprietor of the Museum of the Weird in Austin, TX, was interviewed by J.R. Dobbs Jr.

Is Bigfoot psychic, was the Iceman a real creature, and has science been compromised by money and hubris? Mr. Busti delves into the mystery of Sasquatch with wit, skepticism, and an open mind. Enjoy!J.R. Dobbs Jr.

One of the comments on you tube:

Oh Lord, ESP, huh. No wonder bigfoot and its followers are a joke.Jim Payne

And Steve’s response:

Mr. Payne, I’m sure you can accept the reality of animals’ instincts and human intuition; most people do.

What I’m saying is that “psychic ability” or “ESP” (Extrasensory Perception) and instinct/intuition are one and the same.

So the question is, why are the words “instinct” and “intuition” generally accepted, while the terms “ESP” or “psychic ability” carry a negative connotation and are considered laughable (by some)? It’s all the same.MuseumOfTheWeird

    Craig your mate might get even more visitors to his museum if he got a female relative to help him run the place called Ms Busti.

    ESP is just a way of saying the information wasn’t delivered by one of the traditional senses… the fact is that we have more than the commonly accepted 5 and smell is responsible for telling us a lot more than we realize in the front of our brains. When something is wrong, but we don’t know what exactly, we say something “smells funny”… despite there being no associated smell. ESP is nothing “supernatural” (this is a term I dislike on general principle), as even unexplained phenomena can almost always be traced back and later attributed to natural occurences.

    I think the smell factor could have a lot to do with Bigfoots near “supernatural” ability to avoid humans. Most Bigfoot hunters make absolutely no effort to mask their smell. No need for camera traps to give off any sound emissions at all… after setting them up, the whole area would reek of human activity. Most true hunters realize the importance of smell and set up their stands well in advance so that they become part of the environment and make every effort to mask their own smell before setting out. The story goes that Special Forces in Vietnam had to eat a local diet (fish, vegetables and native spices rather than red meat and western spices), otherwise the VC could smell them coming a mile away.

    No it’s not. Try opening a dictionary for starters.

    Nothing ESP has ever been proven.

    ESP got it’s big modern push from Duke U’s Dr. Rhines in the late ’70’s. He was later fired when his studies were found to have been faked by he and his assistants. But it never stops. Just more new-age wishful thinking science denial.

    Hi Corrick,

    The extremely results oriented CIA conducted Remote Viewing experiments for over two decades at Stanford Research Institute. Some of the results might surprise you:

    “In July 1995 the CIA declassified, and approved for release, documents revealing its sponsorship in the 1970s of a program at Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, CA, to determine whether such phenomena as remote viewing “might have any utility for intelligence collection” [1]. Thus began disclosure to the public of a two-decade-plus involvement of the intelligence community in the investigation of so-called parapsychological or psi phenomena. Presented here by the program’s Founder and first Director (1972 – 1985) is the early history of the program, including discussion of some of the first, now declassified, results that drove early interest.”

    “The development of this capability at SRI has evolved to the point where visiting CIA personnel with no previous exposure to such concepts have performed well under controlled laboratory conditions (that is, generated target descriptions of sufficiently high quality to permit blind matching of descriptions to targets by independent judges).”

    Skeptics believe (because the official CIA story says so) that these experiments never amounted to anything. The fact that the CIA spent 24 years and millions of dollars doing them, belies this belief.

    SPAWN OF J.R. “Bob” Dobbs! Where has thou been keeping thyself?
