CHECK OUT THE UPCOMING EVENT
Back in 2012 in nelson county va a small town of gladstone va. We own a farm. A cougar was spotted in the fields many times. I had emailed dgif to be to told there were no such things. Well a few yrs later one was killed in the town of gladstone va on the csc railroad tracks. About 7 miles east. I saw pictures of it and im gonna try to find friends that may still have them of that cat. My names David tyree. Very interested. Because my x father in law back in the 80’s and early 90’s done alot of coon hunting not far from our farm. Along the buffalo river. Was a old soap stone mine there once. Alot of holes. He told of stories of many times treeing a cat. Or killing a coon and the cat would stalk them smelling the blood on the walk to the truck.
Me my sister and my cousin all witnessed a large cougar size black cat cross the road on our ridge when we where younger and my sister also saw it in the day time in the field. Also around the same time my friend that lived about a mile from here was frequently seeing a large black cat and little ones with it. And around 1990 my parents saw a regular tan mountain lion on the ridge in broad daylight all in haysi va on tivis ridge and 3 cross the road.
Lady I work with saw a Big Cat 2weeks ago on 33 in Rawley Springs on her way to work. She said it was definitely a mountain lion.
Hunted 900 acres in Caroline County. Next door neighbor had camera pictures of one in a field stretched out sunning. I brought up to him because I had a huge cat track on a fresh dirt pile where the owner was having bore dirt samples collected. It was right on the North Anna River.
I saw a black panther in Keezletown back in the 70’s. A VERY shocking sight at the time!
I was in West Virginia a few years ago wirt county I seen a black panther up in the hills it crossed the road.
Im sure many of you that ride through the mountains of Virginia or hike and camp our national forest have seen a great deal of the various wildlife that inhabits our land.
I have witnessed a great deal of them such deer, sightings of bear as well as numerous encounters with them, Skunks, rabbits , Turkey, Fisher cat, Bard owls, bald eagles, osprey by the lakes, marsh hawks, red tail hawks, Coyotes and so many others I can mention but Im here to bring attention to a much more elusive stealthy and beautiful animal.
The Mountain Lion aka cougar. Although the department denies ever recieving reports there is a great deal of eyewitnesses and one of them being myself. As an independent wildlife researcher and Cryptozoologist I am always observing my surroundings in the great outdoors and Have found the tracks that belong to almost every living creature that lives here in Virginia and the mountain lion is just one of many however Ive witnessed a black cat crossing the forest road in 2015. I have also gathered and picked up reports of farmers having them on their property. Who would trust as an incredible source an eyewitness or someone who denies reports?
Or maybe you have witnessed something much larger and out of the ordinary that you can’t explain and want to share with someone who will understand and believe you. As a Cryptozoologist I research and study the unknown an unclassified elusive primate also denied by many BIGFOOT!
Tell me about it with details date and location:
Daniel J. Benoit. (Field Researcher)
My first question to the non believer and skeptic are you calling everyone who has seen a Bigfoot a liar ?
Why are only Single tracks being found? Common sense suggests consider the soil and terrain. Is it clear, soft, or hard?
Throughout the ages all across the globe eyewitnesses and people just as yourself have remained quiet out of fear of ridicule and mockery that comes forward from the very same person you are today thinking that the existence is one big joke or a hoax.
Who is leaving behind the evidence left deep in our forest? Tracks belonging to no known species, large formations ruled out not being from weather.
Many of you ask the same old questions regarding where is the body or with todays technology why haven’t we found one yet? This is where you are lost and unaware due to your lack of interest of not willing to research and to explore for yourself.
Are you aware of the hundreds of species still being discovered today that we never knew existed or throught were extinct? But wait Why didn’t we know about them with todays technology? See my point? Of course you dont let me add more here.
Many consider BIGFOOT as either human or as an undiscovered or unclassified primate, well no matter how we look at the subject they are both highly intelligent beings and a few non human primates possess more intelligence than we do. A large mountain gorilla being observed in its own natural habitat can simply disappear with out a trace right in front our own eyes this is because of the natural occurrence of them having the ability to hide with natural camouflage not no special powers. Primates a lone are shy and yet very cautious animals they are well alert to any unfamiliar presence in their territory and do observe us without revealing themselves. We can be feet in front of them and never know it.
Todays technology can help us but is limited. Remember technology is man made therefore its not perfect.
Many known primates burry their dead or dispose of them after they are done mourning after their loss. What becomes of the body or remains of a non human primate? I have done studies on primates quite in depth in order to compare with the possibility on how the facts may compare to Bigfoot. Well Without getting into the Subject and details of TAPHONOMY allow me to explain an important but yet simple fact about non human primates verses us human primates. When a non human primate dies and the breakdown process has gone through it’s steps and then we are left with skeletal remains well here is something very few know that the discovery of remains are very limited due to perseverance. Non human primate bones dissolve and breakdown quickly especially in highly acidic soil.
Now is this the case with Bigfoot? It very well may be but for those who look at Bigfoot as a human then this would not make sense as they are still scratching heads trying to come up with another logical conclusion or in some cases making up magical reasoning without no supportive data
These are known facts related to known non human primates.
This is just a small taste of something to really consider.
Well aware of their surroundings
Many people capture illuminated, circular spots in their photographs. These spots are commonly known as orbs. Some people explain orbs as light reflected off surrounding surfaces; some explain them as light reflected off dust particles; and some explain them as spirits or other entities normally invisible to the human eye.
When it comes to presenting evidence of the paranormal, pictures and videos of orbs seem to pop up everywhere. Many enthusiast ghost hunters get all excited when they see orbs in their pictures. They will argue with you that they are proof of the paranormal. Troy Taylor, author of Ghost Hunter’s Guidebook and president of the American Ghost Society, call these type of people “orb-a-philes“. These “orb-a-philes” will swear by orbs and will not take any rational explanations into account. They will post these photos and videos all over the internet and try to convince people that this is positive proof that ghosts exist.
However, orbs are one of the most easily explained phenomenons in paranormal investigations. There are so many factors that come into play when debunking orbs in pictures and video. For serious paranormal investigators and ghost hunters, they will take a variety of environmental factors into consideration. In fact, many renowned paranormal researchers have discounted orbs as being paranormal for a number of different reasons.
Does this mean all orbs in photography can’t be paranormal at all? Not necessarily. The science of paranormal research has been debated for decades and will probably continue to be debated for decades to come. However, when it comes to orbs don’t be so quick to play the paranormal card. First, rule out all possible explanations.
It is always a good idea to perform a check of all equipment prior to an investigation. Be sure that camera lenses are free from smudging and dust. Also, make sure your fingers don’t touch the lens during the investigation. Our fingers have natural oils that will leave a smudge residue. Smudging and dust could cause orbs to appear in your pictures. Even if you capture an orb with a pristine clean camera, it doesn’t mean it is paranormal. Consider the following factors before submitting orb pictures as evidence.
The number one culprit orbs appearing in photographs and on video are dust and debris. According to Merriam Webster dust is fine particles of matter. This could include dead skin cells, dirt, pollen, animal dander, hair, decomposing insects, dust mites, waste from dust mites, lint, insulation from the building, and the list goes on.
So what makes dust appear in film as orbs? The simple answer is retro-reflection of light off the dust particle. Many paranormal investigators and ghost hunters typically do their investigations at night. Because of this there might be flashlights involved, flash from cameras, infrared (IR) lights, and natural lights from the environment just to name a few sources of light that can cause this retro-reflection of light on dust particles. It doesn’t take much light to reflect off of these dust particles and cameras are quick to pick it up. However, this doesn’t mean orbs in photos taken during the day are proof of paranormal. It all comes down to retro-reflection of light regardless of the time of day or night.
Many “orb-a-philes” may argue that there was no dust in the area. This is simply something that cannot be proven. Although our human eyes may not be able to see dust particles prior to the investigation it does not mean that dust particles are not present. Remember, dust can be a variety of different things. Even paranormal investigators or ghost hunters can bring dust particles in from the outside on their clothing without even realizing it. Even still, a human body sheds 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells every hour. Now multiply that by how many people are at the location and how long they stay for the investigation.
Dust orbs can appear translucent to solid depending upon the type of dust or how close it is to the camera. Although most cases dust orbs are not bright but this doesn’t mean they can’t be.
Insects are another common problem in photographing orbs. They often appear as solid bright orbs of light. Insects are naturally curious when it comes to light sources. Have you ever noticed when you turn on a porch light that insects are attracted to it within minutes. They are just as curious even with soft infrared light.
Some people may argue that there were no insects at the location. This is hard to guarantee. Many insects are very small and typically go unnoticed by most people. For example, gnats and fruit flies typically go unnoticed unless there are several.
In many cases of having video evidence orbs of light that move across the screen are often debunked as insects. Even a small gnat can appear large the closer it is to the camera. Many times when insects are in-flight it creates an orb that appears to have a tail streaming behind it.
When someone thinks of moisture they think of water or vapors they can see. However, our atmosphere is filled with moisture molecules that humans cannot see with their own eyes. Cameras are great at capturing moisture molecules sometimes.
One example is when a group of paranormal investigators were on an investigation at a private residence, they decided to go down to the creek where a woman’s body was dragged. Many of the paranormal investigators began taking random pictures during EVP sessions. Many of the photos came back with octagon-shaped orbs. This would be intriguing if the paranormal investigators weren’t standing on large rock in the creek. Standing in a water source and the light from the cameras created a beautiful display of orbs.
Not all moisture orbs are octagon. They can be a variety of shapes. They can also be a variety of colors as well. Have you ever seen a rainbow when watering your lawn or washing your car? Moisture and light create literally a rainbow of colors. Keep in mind though, that not all water molecule orbs have colors
Many share the the belief or theory “the sons of God” and giants from Genesis 6. Some Bible teachers believe that angels took the form of flesh (actual incarnation) to engender offspring with women, thus “Giants” came into being (Nephilim). What do you believe?
Lets take a look at my biblical view and at what the Holy Scriptures tell us, surely if your a believer in the Nephilim being the origins of Bigfoot then you have no problem reading this or even if your not a believer in such theory then you would truly appreciate this mind settling blog.
This theological position from Genesis 6 is common — that fallen angels had sex with humans to create a race of giants — but I don’t subscribe to it.
This is is what the Bible says about the Nephilim:
The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. (Genesis 6:4, NASB)
A basic premise in the doctrine of man’s earthly dominion is that God gave His delegated authority to human beings on this planet. And God made only man as a fleshly being with a soul. Demons, which most theologians believe are fallen angels, have a soul/spirit, but no body. Animals have a body and mind, but no eternal soul/spirit. Man is uniquely made in God’s image as a triune being — spirit, soul (mind, will, and emotions), and body.
God gave dominion to man on the earth to rule as His regent because man was made in His image as a triune being. So only a triune man, made out of the dust of the earth, can have dominion under God. Demons cannot take on flesh — there is nowhere in the Bible that says that they can. Of course we know that angels, both heavenly and fallen, can appear in human form, but they remain spirit beings only.
Also, in Genesis chapter one, God says in verse 24, “…Let the earth produce living creatures according to their ‘kinds’…” A fish can not produce with a bird. And a man cannot produce with an animal — or a demon. All creatures on the earth produce only according to their ‘kind’.
In the passage in question, we see that the Bible says:
“…’the sons of God’ saw that the daughters of man were beautiful…”
The Hebrew for the term “sons of God” is ben elohim, which means literally “sons of God.”
A key of biblical interpretation is to allow the Scripture to interpret itself. People fall into error when they try to make the Bible say something to fit their particular doctrinal position when the text does not say it. In this case, the text simply says ‘sons of God’, which is a designation for humans. There is nowhere in the Bible where demons are called ‘sons’, and especially not ‘sons of God.’
There are three passages in Job that refer to the ‘sons of God’, that seem to indicate that these were godly angels, since mankind had not received access to God’s presence before the resurrection of Christ, and Demons had been expelled from God’s presence.:
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. (Job 1:6, NASB)
Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the LORD. (Job 2:1, NASB)
When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy… (Job 38:7, NASB)
Throughout the rest of the Bible, and particularly in the New Testament, when the term ‘sons of God’ is used it is referring to human beings.
In the genealogy of Jesus, Luke writes in chapter 3:38, ‘…son of Seth, son of Adam, son of God.’
Jesus referred to human beings as ‘sons of God.’
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. (Matt. 5:9, NASB)
Jesus said to them, “The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; for they cannot even die anymore, because they are like angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. (Luke 20:36, NASB)
Paul also referred to humans as “sons of God”:
For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. (Romans 8:14, NASB)
For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. (Romans 8:19, NASB)
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. (Gal. 3:26, NASB)
In Gen. 6:3, God says, “My Spirit will not remain with ‘mankind’ forever, because they were corrupt.” It says “mankind” — not a mix of man and demon. In verse 4 it says the Nephilim were “…powerful men…” Again, not powerful demon-men.
And in verse 7, “…the Lord said, ‘I will wipe off the face of the earth: man, whom I created…'” Here we see an explicit reference to who and what God intended to bring judgement to — man. God says nothing about demons or fallen angels here. That which God created, man, would be destroyed — with the exception of righteous Noah.
God alone is the Creator. Demons and angels do not have the power to create, so they could not have re-created, or reproduced with human beings. If these were a separate race created by demons reproducing with men — which would not be something God created — then I believe God would have made it clear that the demon-men were being destroyed along with the regular men.
But God only says that He will destroy MAN who he created.
If the demons were reproducing offspring with humans then, why don’t we see any other instance of this in the Bible — and why aren’t they doing it today? The answer, I believe, is that it simply isn’t possible.
We need to be careful that we don’t try to force the Bible to say what it doesn’t actually say. This is how cults and false religions are started and grow. Instead, we must use proper biblical interpretation that lets the Bible say what it says, adding nothing and taking nothing away.
God is sovereign, and He set the parameters for reproduction in Genesis chapter one, and no one, and no thing can reproduce outside of His plan.
The oldest account of Bigfoot was recorded in 986 AD by Leif Ericson and his men. During their first landing in the New World, the Norsemen wrote about manlike beasts that were “horribly ugly, hairy, swarthy and with great black eyes.”
Among his accounts, Leif told of seeing huge hairy men who towered over him and his men. The “huge hairy men”, according to Leif, lived in the Woods and had a rank odour and a deafening shriek. It should be noted that Leif Ericson and his men describe huge manlike beasts that were loud and foul-smelling and clearly distinct from native peoples. Apparently, Leif had several sightings of the “huge hairy men” before departing the island.
They called the creature “Skellring”. People believe that the creature “Skellring” is what we know today as Bigfoot. This is the earliest recorded encounter with Bigfoot, or Sasquatch.
I find this very intriguing and most credible. To have documented such creatures and to have experienced them says a lot coming from this time frame. Hoaxing was not a Vikings style. Explorers make/take notes of their Discoveries and travels.
On other notes and Translations
Bio and brief history continued:
Born in the 10th century, Norse explorer Leif Eriksson was the second son of Erik the Red, who is credited with settling Greenland. For his part, Eriksson is considered by many to be the first European to reach North America, centuries ahead of Christopher Columbus. However, the details of his voyage are a matter of historical debate, with one version claiming his landing accidental and another that he had sailed there intentionally after learning of the region from earlier explorers. In either case, Eriksson eventually returned to Greenland, where he had been commissioned by Norwegian king Olaf I Tryggvason to spread Christianity and is believed to have died circa 1020. In the early 1960s, the discovery of the ruins of a Viking settlement in Newfoundland lent further weight to accounts of Eriksson’s voyage, and in 1964 the United States Congress authorized the president to proclaim each October 9 as Leif Eriksson Day.
