I saw an anthropologist give what seems to me to be a powerful argument against all these Yeti, Bigfoot, Susquatch, and the like: In order for them to be alive at this point in time with 6 billion people on Earth, they all would have to have a viable reproducing population which means there would have to be at least hundreds of them maybe thousands.
If that were the case, there would be other signs, nests, distinctive hair which could be tested for DNA, signs of food trails, many more tracks, etc.
The fact is what we have is folklore, beasties in the night, howls in the distance, etc.
All the sightings so far can be put down to outright fraud, misidentification and so forth.
There has not been one real shred of evidence that could be tested and verified or falsified in the lab.
They could not possibly be living on several continents in such small numbers all at the same time where all these separate groups by chance would have such small populations as to be on the verge of extinction. Statistically it is impossible or such a low level of probability as to defy logic.
We can wish for these super predators till the cows come home but they won't just magically appear in some hunters pickup any time soon.
Better to go on to a real subject: UFO's🙂
