Bigfoots do not have tails. The fact that they have no tails makes them great apes. Chimpanzees are great apes and so are gorillas. I mention the gorilla because some types of gorilla are huge like bigfoots. But I wish to write about the chimp and “science’s” claim that humans and chimps share almost in whole the same DNA. The few percent differences, however, make a huge difference. For one thing, when chimps have tried to be taught to use sign language, they’ve failed miserably. So, these experiments “actually prove that chimps are incapable of even the most rudimentary forms of human language.” (This from the book Life─How did it get here? By evolution or by creation?) By comparison, a very young human can learn as many as six languages, if not more, and this at the same time! The book The Brain: Mystery of Matter and Mind states “The power of speech, … , uniquely sets humans apart from animals. Yet, the origins of language remain one of the brain’s most baffling mysteries.”
Why am I writing about language this week? One bigfoot field-researcher claims he’s captured the sound of two bigfoots talking. I’m sure he believes this and perhaps the animals are mimicking human speech, (we know that some animals and many birds can do this). What language did he believe he heard the animals speak? That would be Spanish! One or two sightings that I can remember mentioned bigfoots observed mimicking forest workers, road crews and lumber jacks. So, if these observations can be believed, bigfoot takes an interest in us humans and at times mimics us.
While driving through the forest, I’ve many times looked up at the mountains and wondered what bigfoot thought of the moving cars and trucks below him. Does he think of them as we think of a column of ants? If he’s been close to the road, he, of course, knows otherwise.
I’ll be so glad when “science” tells us that bigfoots exist. Why? Well, for a couple of reasons. One, I’ll be glad for the laughing to stop. (Many of my friends don’t even know that I write about bigfoot or believe the animal exists. I trust this information with very few of my friends and acquaintances.) Second, after “discovery” funds no doubt will be allocated to study the animal by science. At that point solid information could be expected and we and the animal will be better off. This is my opinion. Until next week, Linda Newton-Perry with Christopher Perry
