Talk:Sasquatch

From New World Encyclopedia
Unification Aspects:

Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, is a legendary creature, a primate-like animal said to inhabit the forests of North America. Although sightings of the creature are quite numerous, and the local Native Americans have traditional stories and legends describing them, most scientists are skeptical of their existence.

Numerous sightings and tales, enhanced by a variety of evidence including numerous footprints, photographs, and film, much of which was later found to be hoaxed, add to the intrigue. Scientists remain generally unconvinced. Like other such creatures, the Yeti or "Abominable Snowman" of the Himalaya Mountains being a rather similar example, popular belief long outlives scientific rejection, indicating a rather deep-seated desire for the possibility of a realm of existence beyond that which has been explained by science.

Bigfoot, an animal that appears more similar to human beings than the known great apes, captures the imagination of the public as a link between human beings and our primitive ancestors, or even between our known physical world and the paranormal or spiritual world.

While the Sasquatch may not exist as a physical creature, the continued "sightings" by people may not all be just wishful thinking or hoaxes. Unification Thought explains that human beings exist as both physical and spiritual beings, with both physical and spiritual senses, living temporarily in the physical realm and then eternally in the spiritual world. Although the spiritual senses of most have been dulled since the beginning of human history as a result of the Fall of Man, some awareness (through the spiritual senses) of life existing beyond physical observation remains. As with all such "mystical creatures," there is also the possibility that the Sasquatch may be spiritual beings who were detected on various occasions.
