well chimps have 98 to 99 percent of human dna ... is that close enough for murder?

it's a good question ... kind of like transhumanism .. .when artificial 'things' overtake human abilities, are they then deserving of the natural rights of humans that most people recognize? (tho that very few care about truly enforcing if it isn't directly affecting them) ...

i don't know honestly ... i haven't studied the subject to give a yes or no ... but 98% "human" seems pretty darned human to me

take care :)

Well, it appears as though this article is laced with questions of ethics, morals and legal issues. So, Why Has No Hunter Ever Shot and Killed a Bigfoot?

In California there are laws about this issue. Here it is.

If people went into the woods with the intent to kill a bigfoot or sasquatch and the biped turned out to be human, that killing with malice aforethought would be prosecuted as:187 P.C. Murder- With intent, planned and designed to kill, first degree murder with the penalty of life imprison without parole or death.

The above is an excerpt found here.

I wouldn't shoot a Bigfoot. I am totally against killing any living creature unless absolutely neccessary but I can understand people freaking out and killing spiders and things and even to some extent, recreational hunting (I don't agree with it but I understand that other people see nothing wrong with it). Though I just don't understand why anyone would want to kill a Bigfoot. I believe the only way they could have stayed out of sight this long is if they were as intelligent or more so than us which indicates they know how we act and have decided against living with us. I think if we run around shooting them, in my personal opinion, lawfully it should be as bad as killing another human. And Bigfoot is a mystery that a lot of people have wanted to know the answer to for years, why would we just kill it? Is that really our first thought: how good of a trophy a Bigfoot would make?
And I know most of you guys on this thread are against killing Bigfoot but the questions were for dramatic effect. 😉

Growing up in rural "rain forest" Oregon, I have had two personal dealings with a 8' creature. In a community full of loggers and rednecks, everyone has a close friend or family that has a story. The reality is, these outdoors man that work and live in it, talk an "assassins" agenda, but when the being is in their cross-hairs, they don't pull the trigger.
The result is profane. As told to me by such a person, their eye's were intelligent.
I believe many people have attempted, and none have succeeded for whatever reason. Perfect If someone blasts a Bigfoot, how many more will suffice the scientific community? Not enough. Leave the creature alone, and for what reason it is here, may we never know.

When I first started remote viewing of Big Foot, I thought they were a hoax, but I found I could follow them back to Nordic space craft. My channels tell me that they are entirely human. They call them semi-feral humans. Nevertheless, they are more intelligent than we are and are very telepathic. They refuse to wear clothes and are very hairy. There are both males and females. They can be extremely violent, and the Nordics employ them as executioners to get rid of people they really do not like. They do not live on earth full time, but beam down in wilderness areas sometime. If you see one you are probably safe unless the Nordics think you are a threat for some reason.

Don't you think that it sounds ridiculous: "I will kill you now because I need a proof that you're alive". Why would someone do such a thing? Don't tell me it's for scientific purpose because such an explanation is a pure B*****T. Like someone before said: shoot with camera.

With a Tranquilizer Dart, I sure would.  I have no desire to kill anything.  But if we are to treat this species as a real scientific study we need to find one that isn't protected by others tranq it, get proper uncontaminated DNA and blood samples from it and fit it with a tracking chip while we take photos and measurements.  In addition get some of its excrement would be nice to find out what kind of diet we are looking at.  After that we let it go on its way and le the tracking chip tell us more about as the DNA is mapped and analyzed.  The more individuals we can tag the better understanding of the species we would have.

We need uncontaminated DNA for proof of existence that is all.

The best way to track this species is from the air in a research airship with thermo imagers, nightvision and Hi Def. Cameras that way we can isolate an individual and land without too much disturbance and collect what we need and get out.

Whoa buddy slow your roll... transhumanism... artificial things... you're talking about 90% or so of the current human population just as it is right now. Are they deserving of human rights ? 90% or so of our current human population ?
