mooeypoo Posted September 14, 2008 Share Posted September 14, 2008 JohnB, you have a few good points, but the main problem, at least in my point of view, is that we've already dealt with this before on this forum -- with these exact videos. We've pointed it out, too. How much theoretical physics can meet the levels of proof demanded in this thread? So the Higgs doesn't exist? Dark Matter? We haven't seen either yet, but I ain't gonna be the first to call those looking for them nasty names or suggest that they're on a fools errand. Bottom line. Cut the guy some slack. While SFN is a science forum, this particular sub forum has "Speculations" in it's title. In the first instance, the standards of proof don't need to be so high. And thanks for that answer I_A. I hadn't considered the population size problem. Actually, that's a bit unfair. The scientific community *is* skeptical of Dark Matter, and the Higgs *doesn't yet* exist, until proven to exist. They're both considered a hypothesis. But the scientific community holds standards for what a hypothesis is, too. Hypothesis is not just shot out of thin air. It needs to have basis in reality and supporting evidence. The scientific community didn't accept the hypotheses as true. It still doesn't. But these hypotheses have enough supporting evidence to them to warrant an investigation where they are ASSUMED. Bigfoot does not. And as I have poitned out, there are first a few things to state and prove BEFORE bigfoot can enter that realm. Things that weren't presented at all. Instead, the matter of a video (which, btw, as I've stated also, is never good enough as proof. Ever. It's *always* on the realm of 'supporting' evidence, and requires more proof) was constatntly repeated. There's not much here that will warrant the idea transforming into a hypothesis, let alone proving bigfoot's existence. There might be, if the OP would find more supporting evidence for his idea. But he didn't. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
