Bigfoot Body Found—Sure to be a hoax
Status: Hoax
On Friday Aug 15 a press conference is scheduled in Palo Alto to present evidence suggesting that the corpse of a Bigfoot has been found in Georgia. DNA evidence and photo evidence will be presented. (Thanks to everyone who emailed me about this.)

I'd just like to go on record before the press conference to predict that it's going to be a hoax. Bigfoot hasn't been found. Why? Because if a Bigfoot species existed in North America, it would have been found long ago. To remain hidden this long, the Bigfoot species would need to have supernatural abilities.

The evidence that's been leaked so far in support of the Bigfoot Body consists of a photo of what looks like a Bigfoot costume stuffed into a freezer.

Already the "Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization" is claiming that "The Georgia *Bigfoot Body* story is a hoax orchestrated by a veteran media hoaxer named Tom Biscardi."

See my list of Bigfoot Hoaxes for some of the history of Sasquatch shenanigans.

I am shocked by the negativity that I am receiving about my statements of the supernatural origins of Bigfoot and my invisibility theory.However I maintain all of what I said and nothing anyone on this planet or any other will convince me otherwise. Isaiah August 19,2008

Hey, Isaiah. Too bad you wouldn't back your certainty with a wager 'cause I would be the winner:

"And we know god exists but there's no proof."

That makes at least two things you're wrong about. We DON'T "know" that God exists. Many people BELIEVE God exists but that is NOT the same thing as KNOWING, no matter how sincere the belief.

Gee, what a surprise. I guess it's too late to issue similar arrest warrants on the Shroud of Turin. The statute of limitations has run out on that one. The Fox news story has an interesting link:

Well you may THINK you would have one your little wager BUT NOT FOR ONE MOMENT DO I BELIEVE THIS HOAX THEORY.Bigfoot exists. there are not rubber suits that look like this.For All we know someone on this very site could have paid the media to report it was a hoax.I still stand firm and say that this is real and that every word of all my comments are accurate.So keep on laughing-but not for long because I'm right.There is no possible way this is a suit(for more info refer to my previous comments).

Assuming that you are not merely a troll, Isiah, would you believe that this Bigfoot was a hoax if the perpetrators said so?

Well, this is your lucky day!

hi,Cranky Media Guy,very interesting theory on a possible hoax (in your opinion)still no,this does not convince me because if you think about this maybe the pressure of the publicity has made them claim it is a hoax when it's not.This body is clearly authentic in my mind.I'M NOT A TROLL.I'm sitting here at the computer at my home in upstate new York. thanks but,THIS IS NOT A HOAX IN ANY WAY. thanks again

CMG, I know God exists from personal experience, but I doubt you would accept my word on this as evidence. Various things that have happened to me in my life, and my family's lives, have convinced me. Scientific evidence? No, but enough for me. I forget which philosifer said "The proof of God's existence is the He does not need to exist to save us." Or something close to that, I haven't read philosophy in decades.

"The proof of God's existence is the He does not need to exist to save us."

No disrespect intended, but that makes absolutely no sense at all to me. Even without the odd grammar bit.
