Newspaper Article: Bigfoot, A Matter of Time
Since writing this column (going on five years), I’ve often read in my research about huge skeletons being unearthed in the United States. Could these have been bigfoot skeletons? Or, were these bones simply large human remains?
Of course, it is difficult to say, to determine, since at the time of the “finds” DNA science didn’t exist. How tall do humans grow anyway? Most of us have heard of the Masai of Africa. The men of this tribe reach seven feet and the women six.
And then there are Pliny the Elder’s reports of an Ethiopian tribe standing twelve feet. More on this at this Internet website: http://www.theoi.com/Phylos/Syrbotai.html.
And then there is David’s Goliath from the Bible, and again the Bible’s angels that came down from heaven to marry the beautiful daughters of humans. They married and produced freakishly large offspring. When Noah’s flood came upon the earth, the materialized angels dematerialized and returned to heaven. These giants’ sons and daughters were drowned along with mankind in the flood waters. Perhaps these bones are some that have been found. It shouldn’t be too difficult to believe since dinosaur bones were pre-flood and we find them.
But, since I’m a bigfoot enthusiast, I’m more inclined to believe these large skeletons, in the United States, are those of bigfoot.
In last week’s newspaper, The Sentinel, an article was published about Elmer Calkins’ 1931 discovery of an enormous skeleton at the mouth of the Salmon River. He unearthed it while plowing. The article’s topic was pirate treasure and titled “Giant skeleton find recalled legend of pirate treasure at Salmon River.” The author, Finn J.D. John, is an instructor at Oregon State University. (The sources of John’s article are Portland Oregonian, “Large skeleton found,” 2-21-1931, “Finding of old skeleton hints at early tragedy,” 4-05-1931, and “Buried treasure sought,” 5-19-1974; Hult, Ruby, Lost Mines and Treasures. Portland: Binford, 1975.) Contact phone for John is 1-541-357-2222. The full article may be on the Sentinel’s website at www.thesentinelpaper.com.
Aug. 8th will be the two year mark since the ESP Team, their trail cam, snapped photos of a bigfoot. It is difficult, granted, to keep enthusiasm high since it’s been so long. At first the team kept us informed on when we would see the photos, but the last few months the team has been silent. Actually, the only team member that talked to us at all, is now deceased, Hank Parchell. We wait. Until next week, Linda Newton-Perry
