Sasquatch and Paranormal Activity

Over time and after hundreds of alleged encounters a question arises, “Is there more to Sasquatch than just flesh and bone?” For centuries Sasquatch, Bigfoot and Paranormal Researchers have been asking themselves that very question. Whenever an alleged Sasquatch encounter takes place, and it just vanishes without a trace, researchers wonder why, if it is real, how could it just vanish. Skeptics and non-believers use that very question to try to prove their point that Sasquatch is only a myth and does not exist. Another question that Sasquatch and paranormal investigators ask themselves when they find alleged Bigfoot tracks, “Why do the tracks go so far, just stop, and go nowhere?”

Stan Gordon, a Sasquatch and paranormal investigator, in an interview, “The Amazing Sasquatch UFO Connection,” on Before It’s News, stated, “Bigfoot phenomena was much more unusual and complicated than I could have ever imagined.” He also went on to say, “Many reports of UFOs, Bigfoot, and other phenomena could be explained as misidentifications of natural or man made objects, there were strange encounters being reported yearly that were not so easily dismissed.”

In an interview with Mike Paterson, a Sasquatch investigator from Canada, he talked about how in the winter he would find tracks, follow them only to see them stop and go no further and wonder how could that be possible.

In “Paranormal America: Ghost Encounters, UFO Sightings, Bigfoot Hunts, and Other Curiosities in Religion and Culture” author’s Christopher Bader, F. Carson Mencken, and Joseph O. Baker, focus on people who believe in Bigfoot and the paranormal and how it has shaped their lives. This book presents a different view of the Bigfoot, UFO phenomena.

On February 16 and 17, 2016, the subject of Bigfoot and its possible paranormal link will be taken to a new level when Rez Squatching Research, led by Barry Webster on the Omaha Indian Reservation in Macy Nebraska, will be conducting night investigations in pursuit of alleged Bigfoot, to explore the possibility. Stay tuned for future publications on the night investigations on this website.

Did a European Contagion Annihilate Bigfoot?

Native American cave drawings and folklore legends show that Native Americans lived side by side at one time. Richard Soule, author and producer of The Nox Gigas Study, has come up with the European Contagion Theory. A theory that the diseases brought by Europeans not only decimated the Native American population but the Bigfoot population as well. Soule, in his study, has concluded that because Bigfoot and Native Americans lived side by side, Bigfoot, exposed to the diseases as well, perished with them. Soule shows map evidence of Giants and will be at a Bigfoot Conference on October 24, 2015.

In the sixteenth century, Europeans immigrated to the North American Continent. They brought with them disease, the Black Death, that would help devastate the Native American population and wipe out entire villages. In an article, “Black Death: The Greatest Catastrophe,” (published in History Today, Volume 55, Issue 3, March 2005) author and historian Ole J. Benedictow describes in detail how in the 14th century, the Black Death killed 50 million people or 60 percent of Europe’s population. Diseases such as smallpox spread among the immune defenseless Native Americans before encountering Europeans.

In an article on Examiner.com, “Apocalyptic, a mysterious plague killed millions of Native Americans,” by Richard Thornton, describes how in 1500 a smallpox epidemic, which was started, by one of Christopher Columbus’s crew, a carrier of the disease killed millions. The disease appeared in Cuba immediately after Columbus’s second voyage and from Chontal Mayan merchants who sailed between Yucatan and Cuba spread it. Mayan merchants spread the first plague to hit North America. Thornton goes on to say that in 1513 when the first Spanish explorers landed on the coast of the Southeastern United States, a plague had already killed many of the native villages along the coast. They reported abandoned villages with skeletons scattered all over.

In an article, Ker Than, a writer for National Geographic News wrote, “Massive Population Drop Found for Native Americans, DNA Shows following European contact about 500 years ago, according to a new study.” Than reported that the study results supports the historical accounts that Europeans launched a deluge of disease that had horrific results across America. The researchers using samples of modern and ancient mitochondrial DNA calculated a demographic history for Native Americans. In conclusion, based on the data, the research estimated Native American population all-time high 5,000 years ago and all time low at 500 years ago. The all-time low reached a few years after Christopher Columbus reached the New World.
