John Bindernagel Sasquatch Lecture - Part 3: Skepticism & Science


Dr. John Bindernagel, a professional wildlife biologist, uses a series of colorful graphs to explain why evidence for Bigfoot as an extant North American mammal has been largely ignored or dismissed by his scientific colleagues, and why the subject has been treated as scientifically taboo. He explains why his recent interest regarding the "mystery" of the Sasquatch is not whether or not it exists (he is convinced it does, based on the available evidence) but why relevant scientists are unwilling to scrutinize this evidence. His colorful graphs and concise quotes illustrate some of the obstacles confronting a scientist attempting to attract the attention of his or her scientific colleagues and peers to what is largely perceived as a far-fetched discovery claim. He explains why the prolonged discovery process regarding the discovery of the North American Sasquatch provides a fascinating look into the philosophy of science, a discipline which may sound boring but which can be very exciting as a long-resisted scientific discovery, such as the Sasquatch, continues to unfold.
