Believe It or Not

Psst, come closer!  If someone asked you to believe that a creature measuring 20 feet tall, as long a bus, with teeth 5 inches long, once prowled the earth, would you? This description of a T-Rex sounds like a figure from a nightmare.  Just between you and me, I wouldn’t believe in dinosaurs, except that inside our museums bones stacked upon bones prove that such creatures existed, and so, I have to give in to reason.
We watched several episodes of “Finding Bigfoot,” and now when we drive near a wooded area my kids say, “I think there’s a Squatch in these woods.” The show usually provides several types of evidence for the existence of Sasquatch or Bigfoot. For example, they show casts of footprints, recorded sounds of howling and tree-knocking, and those often-debated videos of a huge, hairy beings caught running through the woods. The show’s investigators constantly evaluate eye-witness stories to decide who’s playing a hoax and who actually has a credible encounter with something in the woods. Watch as this video transports you into the woods for a Bigfoot hunt.

Are they gathering actual proof—who knows? Once thing we do know: Bigfoot will remain a legend until scientists have a real specimen to study. Similarly, when we state our beliefs, someone somewhere will ask for our evidence.  So, tell us what you believe in and what’s your supporting evidence?
