International Cryptozoology Conference 2018

Bigfoot and UFOs

Posted by: Nick Redfern on June 9th, 2012

While most people with an interest in the Bigfoot phenomenon tend to gravitate towards the theory that the creatures are unknown animals or possibly relic survivors of something along the lines of Gigantopithecus, we all know that the subject attracts beliefs and ideas suggesting Bigfoot has very alternative origins – sometimes of a paranormal nature (however we define what that word – “paranormal” – actually means or doesn’t mean).

I, for example, have written quite extensively on the Tulpa theory. Others have addressed the matter of extra-dimensional aspects to the puzzle. And then, of course, there’s the Bigfoot-UFO controversy, which rears its head now and again, such as in Stan Gordon’s Silent Invasion book.

And, this latter question of “Is Bigfoot an alien?” is one addressed in a new article over at the Huffington Post by Dr. Franklin Ruehl.

I can already see the controversy brewing and blood pressure escalating…!

    The book featured in this article belongs on my bookshelf.

    I own this book. It is an interesting read. Some strange things seem to have gone down back then in Pennsylvania. I have little doubt there is a connection between UFOs and bigfoot. What exactly it is though….who knows?

  3. Doug responds:

    Far fetched? Yes, but no more so than sasquatch being telepathic or interdimensional. Maybe being all three. Kind of doubt it, though.

  4. DWA responds:

    Actually, no, this doesn’t increase blood pressure at all.

    Laughter tends to do the opposite.

    What this does is to take something that scientists unjustifiably consider improbable or impossible…and make it, to them, impossible cubed.

    They just guffaw – again – and turn to serious stuff.

    There is no way to prove it, other than the interviews that will hopefully follow take-me-to-your-leader. It does – like bury-their-dead; like they-know-game-cameras – seem a frequent resort of people unaware of the volume and deepth of the evidence.

  5. Desertdweller responds:

    My blood pressure is just fine, thank you.

    But this UFO “connection” will only serve as a diversion from the search.

    All evidence we have for Bigfoot shows it to be an animal. A critter. A mammal.

    A smart and elusive one, flesh and blood, hair and bone. But hardly “alien” or “magic.”

    Maybe we already have a dead one. If no one intentionally kills one, someone will by accident.

    It’s just a matter of time.

  6. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    Wow. Just… wow.
