Is Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, the same mythical creature known as a Troll in Norse folklore?
It is generally thought Bigfoot is a yet to be discovered man/ape hominid that is wandering the forests of North America.
There are Bigfoot sightings reported from the Appalachian Mountains to the Rocky Mountains and in the forests in between. Can a hominid exist everywhere on the continent without ever once being caught? I submit this is not credible. We are not dealing with an animal enigma. Either this is all a hoax inspiring more hoaxes and pranks, or we have something else going on, something very strange indeed.
If the North American Bigfoot were seen a hundred years ago in Scandinavia, what would they call it? A troll. These beings (trolls/ogres/giants) are written about in the world’s folklore. The Bible even mentions these giants. The evidence suggests Bigfoot is not an animal but a troll.
What is a troll? A troll is a giant that is never entirely in our world and as such can never be clearly photographed or videotaped. Any image taken would necessarily be blurry. Even if a troll stood 10 feet away their picture would be an indistinct blur. Our visual perception of trolls depends not only on our optic nerves but also how our mind interprets them. Trolls are creatures of our imagination, 90% mental and 10% physical. In our mind we perceive the troll more clearly then what is actually present. A troll can best be described as a vibration.
What evidence suggests Bigfoot is actually a troll?
1. Trolls are Blurry Beings: a troll cannot be clearly photographed.
Ever wonder why all Bigfoot photos are fuzzy/blurry? The fact that all Bigfoot videos and photos are hard-to-make-out reinforces this concept.
2. Physical evidence of trolls vanishes.
Why don’t we have any Bigfoot DNA? Physical troll evidence is also mostly in our minds. What appeared as evidence at the time later turns out to be an illusion. For example, suppose we’re lucky enough to get a hair sample of a troll. The next morning we’d discover the hair we put in our backpack turned out to be straw instead. We’d swear we put hair in there. Tales of troll’s gold turning into stones is universal in folklore. Just as our perception of a troll is halfway in our imagination, so would be our perception of evidence collected during an encounter.
3. Trolls vanish without a trace.
Bigfoot hunters have tracked Bigfoot footprints only to discover the footprints inexplicable end. Suddenly there is nothing as if this giant man/ape just vanished. How can an 800-pound creature walk around without a trace of prints? This elusiveness is the signature of a troll. Trolls can dematerialize. Trolls co-exist in our world but mostly another. What brings trolls into human interaction is unknown but contact is brief. This explains why we can never find Bigfoot, but they can find us.
Assuming Bigfoot is a troll, this would suggest new methods are needed to discover Bigfoot. For instance, in Scandinavian folklore church bells are credited with driving away the trolls. It is believed the church bells’ representation of Christianity scared the trolls. What is more likely is that trolls, as entities of vibration, had their vibration disrupted by the sharp ring/vibration of the church bell. If you want to chase away a Bigfoot, ring a bell loudly and it should vanish before your eyes. Let us not forget for the story of Beowulf, how Grendel couldn’t stand the loud noises.
I’d suggest the TV show Finding Bigfoot include a shaman in their team. Not a pretender, a poser, or a celebrity wannabe shaman, but a genuine Native American or Nordic Shaman. The Finding Bigfoot team might have better success at detecting Bigfoot than they currently do howling in the night.
Food for Thought, just don’t choke on it…
