God created Bigfoot. Whether your a creationist or a proponent of the evolutionary process you may agree with this statement. To be clear, we support evolution, but that has not stopped us from learning about Bigfoot from creationist. We have written about Bigfoot creationist before at Big-Tent Politics of Bigfoot
As you may well know, we are an inclusive bunch. We are adamant in believing the pool of bigfoot theories should be as diverse as possible--at least until we find her. One of our goals is to foster and elevate as many different ideas and theories as possible. Call us Pollyanna, we believe everybody in the community is mature enough to share ideas that are, on the surface, contradictory.
This brings us to the website aptly named GodCreatedBigfoot.com
I had a chance to interview the owner of the website, Scott Walker of Ohio, his story speaks not only to Bigfoot from a creationist Christian point-of-view, but also speaks to over policing at Bigfoot Forums can exclude fellow Bigfooters.
BLC: Hi Scott, we find it fascinating you are using Bigfoot to spread an evangelical message, on the surface we felt it was a bait-and-switch, but upon further reading we realized this was a real Bigfooter. Where does your interest in Bigfoot come from?
SCOTT: I have been interested in BF (Bigfoot) investigating for the past 8 years. I had what I believe was an encounter with "something" in the woods that scared me to death. I never saw anything but I could tell that something was wrong and I was in danger. I later found out that a sheriff deputy had an encounter with a BF in the exact same area just a few months prior to my event.
BLC: We had assumed (incorrectly) that all Bigfooters are evolutionist. Its a perspective that is rarely heard in the community. Is this why you created your website?
SCOTT: My website was created to offer Christian believers a place to find information about how God's creation does indeed include the elusive Bigfoot creature. BF has nothing to do with evolution; however, you will find on many BF forums the idea that this is somehow the evolved man missing link. I wanted to try to connect with other Christians and form a Bible believing Bigfoot research group.
BLC:What are the plans for the future of the website?
SCOTT: Maybe some day I will have an actual visual encounter with a BF. At this point I have to be honest and say that I have nothing to show for the years of research I have invested. The best I have done is witnessed very strange screams in the forest. Screams that do not make any sense at all except for the possibility it was a BF.
BLC:Thank you for you time Scott, please keep us posted on any new efforts, although we differ, we feel it is important all voices are heard in the community and a good theory towards discovery can come from anywhere.
SCOTT:Thank you for your interest and if you have any further questions just let me know.
