Finding Bigfoot‘s Skeptic Believes Sasquatch is a Spirit Being?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on August 29th, 2014

Ranae Holland, resident skeptic on Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot and field biologist, has a curious take on the Bigfoot phenomenon.

Excerpt from: Finding Bigfoot: TV researchers come to Uniontown

During the remainder of last week, the team scoured the region, following the witnesses to key locations. In the series, the Bigfoot team often goes into target areas after dusk with night vision cameras. Using bellows, tree knocks and “whoops,” they try to illicit a response from a Bigfoot that’s hopefully in the area.

“So far, it’s been good. We just had one of the best town hall meetings we’ve ever had,” said Bobo. “We’ve had a lot of great witnesses. This is good territory with lots of food, sustenance, water, cover woods, and caves, so people shouldn’t be surprised — they’ve got Squatches here.”

Holland, on the other hand, comes to the Bigfoot field outings armed with a science degree and a belief in spirituality.

“I do believe in Bigfoot, but what I believe is what a majority of the indigenous people of North America believe. They believe it is a spiritual being that has the ability to go between a physical realm and a spiritual realm at will,” said Holland. “I do not believe Bigfoot is a flesh and blood animal, but I do believe in a higher power. Bigfoot is real, but I think he’s a spirit.”

  1. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    Sasquatches are reincarnated people. That makes them closer to God than us, so they have more spiritual qualities. It’s simple evolution.

  2. DWA responds:

    OK. This being TV, I’m sure that FB is gonna come up with a good way to spin this.

    But I’m having significant problems with somebody who professes skepticism about an ape that leaves footprints…when she says it’s a spirit that leaves no physical evidence whatever. What could she mean when she says it has “the ability to go between a physical realm and a spiritual realm at will”? Isn’t this saying that the physical reality is, well, the physical reality?

    I really have a problem with anyone having religious or spiritual beliefs being skeptical…about pretty much anything. Accepting stuff on faith isn’t what scientists do.

  3. Goodfoot responds:

    DWA: I missed where Ranae says Bigfoot is an ape. Or is that your opinion?

    How is assuming Bigfoot is an ape “scientific”?

  4. DWA responds:

    Oh, folks? It’s “elicit,” not “illicit.”

    Goodfoot: when the evidence says it’s an ape, that’s the way to bet (not “assume,” a particularly bad thing to do in science). Bindernagel, Meldrum and NAWAC agree with me; so that’s not bad company.

    PoeticsOfBigfoot: is that extreme frustration with something that’s going on there?

  5. Goodfoot responds:

    DWA: I’m interested in what the evidence is that says Bigfoot is an ape. As opposed to, say, another human, or near-human species. (Evidence also suggests we are dealing with more than one species.)

    Can you name me another example of a New World Ape?

  6. DWA responds:

    Bindernagel’s two books lay out lots of evidence for ape, and none for human.

    No New World Apes identified. Yet. 😉
