Today at the Oregon Bigfoot site, there's this quote from "Crypto-Linguist", Scott Nelson.
I believe that the study of these tapes will never (and should never) end. With the recognition and acceptance that these creatures do indeed speak and understand a complex language, a greater effort will be made to collect voice recordings and our analysis of the language will improve.
He's convinced that Bigfoot is intelligent enough to have a language, like dolphins, or children.
Prior to today, I've seen "Cryptozoologists" on various cable tv channels. They always strike me as crazy hermits who believe in Operation Cloverleaf. I mean the guy they always quote on The History Channel really does look like, well, let's just say he looks a little odd.
Crypto-Linguist Scott Nelson's picture looks like he could be the guy next door. In fact, he has pretty impressive creds from the Navy. There was also that former policeman in Conroe, TX, who claimed the ridges on the plaster casts of Bigfoot ran a different direction than the ridges on a human's foot. And don't forget the siting out near Multnohma Falls where over 80 people saw a Bigfoot trying to cross Interstate 84. 80 people including an Oregon State Trooper.
I love living in Bigfoot country. Everyone here knows someone who thinks they may have seen Bigfoot at one point or another. Someday I hope we can prove they really do exist (Bigfoots, not the people who've seen them). Right across the river there's a county in Washington that even has a law on the books that makes it illegal to shoot a Bigfoot.
One of these days I'm actually going to make it to one of the Bigfoot events around here.
