Perhaps Halloween Lingers


Ohooo..In the last few hours I have learned of spooky things. Could it be that Halloween is not over?

Ridgway, Pa. A hunter out to photograph deer last month has reignited the Sasquatch debate with a photograph of a small furry animal walking on all fours.Rick Jacobs said he took this photograph with a camera using an automatic trigger in the Allegheny National Forest, about 11 miles north of Pittsburgh, hoping to capture deer. But his image has only managed to spark further debate about the existence of bigfoot. More here.

Then there is this the news report that presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich confirms he has seen a UFO.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s aspirations might stretch beyond the Oval Office into the great beyond.The Ohio Democrat and presidential candidate “felt a connection in his heart” when he saw a strange object floating in the sky while visiting Shirley MacLaine in the 1980s in her Washington state home, according to a new book by the actress-turned-clairvoyant.In the book — to be released Nov. 6 — MacLaine writes, “He saw a gigantic triangular craft, silent and observing him. It hovered for about 10 minutes or so and sped away with a speed he couldn’t comprehend. He felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind.”

And so these questions again arise: Is there a “Bigfoot” animal? Are there “flying saucers” UFOs? I’m of a rather open mind and while I can imagine an animal existing that hasn’t yet been identified, it does seems unlikely to me. Our population is large, and we have roamed across so much of our land, that the likelihood of not capturing one of these animals seems small. On the other hand, consider how few people have seen a bear, or a tiger or a lion. Ask a hunter how hard it is sometimes to view, much less, bag his game. So, my opinion on the existence of Sasquatch is: Not likely, but certainly possible.

There seems to be more evidence of UFOs than of Sasquatch’s, and when I consider such existence I consider the mindsets of people in the years before electricity was discovered. Although electricity was as prevalent then as now, the inhabitants of that world had no idea it was there, or to what great use it would be utilized. A light bulb or a computer was in no way envisioned, yet such uses are now seen as clearly possible. A discussion of Xrays, laser beams and global positioning systems would have seemed illogical.Typical Sasquatch Track on Dirt RoadImage take from this site. Much more information there.My opinion is that the existence of both UFOs and such creatures as Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster is feasible. Do you share my opinion or do you have another? I want to hear your thoughts.

I think that I have always believed that there might be a Loch Ness monster (Leviathan??) or a Sasquatch. I read a fiction book called “Leviathan” by James Byron Huggins that has raised a lot of curiosity on this subject. He even uses some scriptures (Job 41). and has mentioned different accounts in history of sightings of dragons. It’s an excellent book and would be worth you time in reading. If you’re interested, Next time you’re going to be in the area, I will give you a copy to read.

As far as UFO’s, I used to believe in them before I became a Christian. Now I wonder if they’re demonic??? I’m not going to totally rule them out, but because nothing is mentioned of life on other planets in the bible, I guess I’m a little skeptical.


Hi Tom. Please say hello to your sweet mom.

Perhaps in our life times we may never know whether strange critters and unusual things in our skies are false or real. Fun to think about, I suppose.


Mom says: Even when I was growing up, those things were still being discussed. My dad had a “Fate” magazine that sometimes talked on these subjects. There were always pros and cons on whether it was fake or real. When I was young, it used to interest me. I feel the same way as you, IT COULD BE POSSIBLE, but not likely.

Tom says: I know FOR SURE that Sasquatch could not have been anywhere in the Allegheny National Forest out East, because He is ONLY in the Cascade mountains of WA state! (HAW) That’s what I HEARD. I don’t believe in him (except in myth), although I suppose it’s possible. As for Loch Ness, why have we been SO SLOW to capture him? Dennis Kucinich seeing a UFO? Shirley McLaine involved? I’m kind of skeptical on UFOs (i.e., flying saucers). Why does Sasquatch/UFO sighting while visiting S. McLaine in WA state take place (as often reported) in WA State? Mom says, “They need some excitement there.” HAW! I suppose these things are all possible, but to me, unlikely.
