John Green: 45 Years of Bigfoot

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on February 4th, 2006

This article was originally presented at the 2003 International Bigfoot Symposium by John Green. It is quite lengthy and will be presented in sections on a daily basis. Posted with John Green’s written consent.

Most of you will have noticed that I am not Jane Goodall, and you may well be wondering why I have been asked to fill her spot at this symposium. Well, you are missing the obvious. We have the same initials.

That Dr. Goodall has been unable to keep her commitment to speak here is most unfortunate. Her presence might well have focused the attention of the media on the fact, which they have so far largely succeeded in ignoring, that scientists of world-wide reputation are starting to take a serious look at the evidence that humans are not the only bipedal primates on Earth.

That, in my opinion, is the current development that holds the greatest promise for the future of Bigfoot/sasquatch investigation…

 It is by no means just Jane Goodall.

 In recent years I have had considerable contact with:

  • George Schaller, director of science for the Wildlife Conservation Society

  • Esteban Sarmiento, primate specialist at the American Museum of Natural History

  • Russel Mittermeier, president of Conservation International and chairman of the world-wide Primate Specialist Group

  • Daris Swindler, author of the atlas of comparative anatomy of man and chimpanzee.

All but Dr. Mittermeier have spent time examining the Skookum cast.

All of them are on our side.

They have all stated, all but one of them publicly, that the evidence already accumulated establishes the case for full scientific participation in getting to the bottom of this matter. Dr. Mittermeier told me that he has long considered taking up the hunt himself–and he told Jeff Meldrum that he would not fear being criticized for doing so, because he and his team have already discovered several other unknown primates.

Dr. Swindler, whom I have known for more than 30 years, has appeared in documentaries on this subject in the past as the obligatory skeptical scientist. Now, after careful examination of the best heel print in the Skookum cast, he has expressed the conviction that it is the heel print of a large unknown primate – and he would be here with us today if his health permitted.

With this high-profile support, and with the increasing number of less eminent but fully-qualified zoologists and physical anthropologists who are already participating at their own expense, the time may well be near when scientific institutions with resources and funding will join us in our search.

All that, however, is in the future, and I am really about the past. The number of individuals and groups now participating in the investigation and the amount of information now available on the internet have gone far beyond my ability to monitor, and my own recent efforts have produced nothing worthy of the keynote position that has been assigned to me here.

What I do have is experience, nearly a half century of it, so mainly I will talk about that.  

To be continued tomorrow…

    More about bla bla bla and no substance. Why does the mainstream of skeptics dismiss the theories and evidence about bigfoot and ect..? Probably because of all the bla bla bla stuff and no meat and potatoes to go with it. I am a believer of bigfoot and UFOs, but cut to the point, give us the facts and leave out the other crap.

    This was part of John Green’s keynote presentation at the 2003 International Bigfoot Symposium held in Willow Creek, CA. There will be meat and potatoes in the parts of it presented today and in days to come.

  3. elpressiedente responds:

    For those with eyes to see and ears to hear. Here is who they are.
    Bigfoot (aka yeti, yowie, snowman) have been around since the moon came into earths orbit some 13 or more thousand years ago. Their home is the moon. They are much further advanced than humans. They teleport back and forth at will. They will never be caught alive. And dont count on an autopsy being taken anymore seriously then Roswell.
    Best of luck in adding the meat and potatoes to their existence. They know your thoughts before you even see them and then thats as close as you’re going to get. Because all you want to do is get famous over their corpse.

  4. elpressiedente responds:

    as a side note my brother in law watched his dog being killed by a yowie in the Pilliga Forest NSW Australia. It was self defence as the dog attacked.

  5. Craig Woolheater responds:

    Why would the yowie kill your brother’s dog? Couldn’t it have just teleported back to the moon instead of resorting to violence? Surely it would have known the dog’s intentions, being that it could have read the dog’s thoughts on attacking it before the dog even saw it. Right?

  6. elpressiedente responds:

    Sheesh… why do you swat a mosquito when it is just as easy to relocate oneself to another room? Is it you are busy with another agenda? Do you consider the ants nest when building a 6 lane freeway? You have the right to defend yourself regardless of your intellect. Self defence is not “resorting to violence”. The dog was a pig dog, trained to kill or be killed.
    Besides how would I know. I only try to retell the facts as they were presented to me. It represents just another piece in the puzzle.
    Your sceptism here should be beyond your personal beliefs.

  7. Craig Woolheater responds:

    And these “facts” were told to you by whom? And what are their credentials that you would know these to be facts, not mere theories? And you are correct, i am very skeptical of your claims.

  8. elpressiedente responds:

    well when your theory fits all the know data it approaches the truth. otherwise its just rumours. i merely add to the puzzle. what have you offered other than skeptism?

  9. cryptohunter65 responds:

    Gee Craig, I can’t understand why you would be skeptical. Watch out dude, Bigfoot might show you the full moon.

  10. Craig Woolheater responds:

    So you are saying that all the know(n) data about Bigfoot supports your theory that Bigfoot has been here on earth since the moon came into the earth’s orbit 13,000 years ago and since then, they have been teleporting back and forth from here to the moon, which is their home base?

    You also stated that you are just retelling these “facts” as they have been told to you.

    So which is it, your theory or the “facts” as retold by you from an unknown source?

    As I asked earlier, who gave you this information?

    And what known data about Bigfoot supports the moon-living, teleporting, telepathing Bigfoot?

    Did Neil Armstrong find Bigfoot tracks on the moon? Are the moon rocks really Bigfoot scat? Inquiring minds want to know!
