Not Bigfoot on Mars, but Dubya himself , an actual hominid as a head shot. 7/99
This image was taken from the JPL Mars archives in the same region where the Hon.
Ted Kennedy’s head was also found amongst the craters several years go. No Photoshop was used, other than to add a title. The crater is several miles across. Taken 7/91
and as a result, that photo was given a Dubious Achievement Award by Esquire in 1991.
History channel, A&E and the others continue to exploit the public’s curiosity over “monsters” with on-going programs about researchers who fail (and always will) to find actual monsters, aquatic or land because of the tendancy
of researchers to find objects left by shape-shifters and dimensional travellers and to then scream “Ahah – proof at last!” . This has gone on since the before the invention of TV.
Bits of hair, bits of blood (that we also have found) , track impressions, screams on tape,
photos (which we have taken also) all form “teasers” that never end. Bodies are never,ever found. The jaws of Gigantopithecus blacki, a 500,000 year old fossil ape,
are waved about but they never match the slender jaws of the Patterson Bigfoot. (1967 -film) Smells, poop, hairs, dna or the lack thereof, never match. It is time to quit.

HOW COULD A HUMANOID FEMALE APPEAR ON NASA PHOTO OF MARS, ON THE SURFACE? AN EXPLANATION:
Note the HUMANOID FEMALE ON MARS report as shown on ANDERSON COOPER 360 1/23/08
has not had any serious denial nor refutation. The image appears to be a valid part of the crater on Mars from 2004. The object may be small, but it has lots of fine detail for a mere
rock.How could this happen?? (Not Bigfoot – the tabloids use “Bigfoot” to sell more papers on the street. Bot it does appear to be human, or humanoid. )
One explanation relates to the OOBE (out of body experience) & see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out-of-body_experience a classic one involving a sleeping subject who was able to leave the body,
drifting upwards to read and memorize a series of letters and numbers on a paper left on top of a bookshelf over her bed. Then returning
later to wake and read the words properly. Many hospital patients report drifting upwards over the operating table, watching the
operation, from above, and later returning. In “near-death” OOBEs, the patient thinks he is dying, ;leaves the body, sees the
people by the bedside, and later returns.
Our suggestion involves “astro-cryptozoology” where unknown or even known animals, appear and do things on other planets, where
they are not supposed to appear or be. Often this may be men, ancient or modern, appearing on planets where they do not “belong”.
We link this with the OOBE in the following speculation:
Perhaps a female mission control specialist in 2004, on the MARS MISSION, drifted into semi-consiousness
and had an OOBE where she appeared on Mars at the edge of the crater being studied. The mind-body
passing through space-time in an instant. Just long enough to appear on video by the Rover. (As a Tulpa)Then
probably returning to the lady at her console, and vanishing at that the Mars crater. The size is not relevant. A mind-manifestation could be 6 cm, or 6,000,000 cm in size. There are stories of dying priests who left their deathbed mentally, just long enough to travel 50 miles,
and give one last Mass, then returning to his bed. Witnesses did see the priest at the Mass.
Perhaps this happened here, on Mars.
If this could be studied and controlled, it might be a way to explore MARS without sending a space ship.
The director of the International Cryptozoological Society, Jon-Erik Beckjord (925-385-0422) has had a number of
such OOBEs including when he visited a neighbor and was later accused of breaking into that house (under OOBE)
and was reported as having been seen there, despite many locks and alarms. He also had an alleged OOBE
where he was touching the Hubble telescope in space, and then zoomed back to his bedroom
when the cat licked his face. Author Robert Monroe, “Travels Outside the Body”, relates many such events,
going to different geographical locations and some unproven locations.
Such OOBEs may explain many strange animals and even dinosaurs (such as Mokele M’Bembe of the Republic of the Congo
_ref Dr Roy Mackal – Univ. of Chicago – and The creature in Loch Ness, -ref. Dr. Robert Rines, Boston)
Questions call 925-385-0422
This is serious.
One of the Mission Control ladies was snoozing and had an OOBE experience.
Her image and mind got to Mars. When she woke, the image remained.
This is a serious idea. Jon-Erik Beckjord 925-385-0422
This is not a joke. My own mind has done this with space.
We can’t say it is a sasquatch, nor a humanoid, nor a human, and it might be a statue or model. But it shows too much detail to be a mere rock.
Trust me, NASA will now mount a special mission to go there and destroy whatever it is it, or was.
Trust no one.

Since people no longer read, and just watch tv, beware tv movies with
a cryptozoological theme, such as BIGFOOT or The Loch Ness Monster, or “CRYPTOZOOLOGISTS” .
Note that BIGFOOT HARMS NO ONE, NESSIE DOES NOT EAT FISHERMEN,
AND CRYPTOZOOLOGISTS DO NOT CARRY TEN DIFFERENT KINDS OF GUNS, PISTOLS AND PULSE WEAPONS FROM STAR WARS.
There are no caves and tunnels going from Loch Ness to the sea, for if there were,
the Loch would drain down 55 feet, like a bathtub. Nessie does not sleep in a cave.
There are not enough fish to support a tribe of zoological Nessies, and the water is too cold for a reptile.
Bigfoot does not eat kids but it does rescue them and bring them back to camp.
Bigfoot is available as a “Spokes-bigfoot” for ISUZU suvs and trucks, since it was
photographed standing next to one. Contact us for photos and details. 925-385-0422
Now it is true we did contribuite to the macho image of a cryptozoologist with our 1976
photo of ourself wearing beard, leather brimmed hat, a 16mm movie camera mounted on a gun-stock and a manic look in the eye, in the Lummi Reservation in NW WA. But we had
our super-secret NASA pulse-weapons in the truck, out of range of the camera. 🙂

Radford had this to say:
By Benjamin Radford, LiveScience’s Bad Science Columnist
posted: 03 December 2007 03:52 pm ET
The Yeti, formerly known as the Abominable Snowman until he fired his publicist, is Nepal’s version of the American Bigfoot. Like Bigfoot, Yeti is large, powerful, leaves strange tracks, and has never been proven to exist outside of folklore and myth.
Interest in the supposed creature is fueled by occasional sighting reports and odd footprints, but recently an American television crew claimed to have found the Yeti’s tracks not far from Mount Everest.
Josh Gates, host of the Sci-Fi channel series “Destination Truth,” claimed that he found three mysterious footprints on Nov. 28: one full print that measured about thirteen inches long, and two partial prints.
Gates said that he could not identify what made them, but that they are “very, very similar” to other strange tracks previously found in the Himalayas and attributed to the Yeti. To Gates and his television crew, this apparently seems like strong evidence for the elusive creature.
Yet there is a scientific explanation for many “Yeti footprints” found in the Himalayas.
Tracks in snow can be very difficult to interpret correctly because of the unstable nature of the medium in which they are found. Snow physically changes as the temperature varies and as sunlight hits it. This has several effects on the impression, often making the tracks of ordinary animals seem both larger and misshapen.
As sunlight strikes the impression from different angles, the sides of the tracks melt unevenly. Thus a bear track made at night but found the next afternoon has been exposed to the morning sun and might change into a mysterious track with splayed toes—much like the one Gates and his crew claim to have found.
While the track Gates found was apparently not in snow, it was in a medium almost as bad: rocky soil near a river. It can be difficult or impossible to get accurate tracks of even known animals in such hard, uneven terrain.
If the soil was soft enough to make a valid impression as Gates claimed, it is puzzling that he found only one complete track. Unless the creature was dropped from a helicopter, scampered a few feet, and then picked up again, there should be a continuous line of dozens of tracks. Or, if the terrain is so poor at capturing tracks that he only found one full print, how accurate can Gates’s track be?
It’s amazing that anyone would claim to have found evidence for the Yeti based on only one ambiguous track found in rocky soil.
Gates and the “Destination Truth” crew interpreted the tracks as those of a Yeti; after all, they were in the area specifically searching for the creature, and as soon as they found something that seemed mysterious, they called the press claiming they’d found evidence.
Gates’s claims fail Logic 101: Just because Gates doesn’t know what made the track doesn’t mean that a Yeti did. There are no authenticated Yeti tracks to compare the tracks to, so who’s to say what a “real” Yeti footprint looks like?
Assuming that the track is real, there are several animals that could have made it.
Those who live in the foothills of the Himalayas are skeptical about Gates’s claim, suggesting that he simply misinterpreted tracks from a mountain bear. Sir Edmund Hillary, who was the first to scale Everest with sherpa Tenzing Norgay, found no evidence of the creature. Famous mountaineer Reinhold Messner also spent months in Nepal and Tibet, climbing mountains and researching Yeti reports following his own sighting. In his book “My Quest for the Yeti,” Messner concludes that large native bears are responsible for Yeti sightings and tracks.
It’s not surprising that the track fooled Gates and his crew, since they did little investigation and only spent about a week in the area. Gates is an actor, not a zoologist or animal tracker, and has little or no experience with supposed Yeti footprints. Gates’s credibility is not helped by his appearances on the “Ghost Hunters ” television show. That series, like “Destination Truth,” is far more interested in making sensational claims and garnering ratings than actually solving mysteries or scientifically analyzing the evidence.
As far as Yeti tracks go, Gates’s “discovery” is nothing new or exceptional; it is only the latest in a long series of similar “mysterious” tracks in the Himalayas attributed to the Yeti more out of speculation than science. Like all previous ambiguous Bigfoot or Yeti tracks, the mystery will remain after the publicity subsides.
Benjamin Radford has scientifically investigated mysterious creatures for over a decade. His latest book is “Lake Monster Mysteries.” This and other books can be found on his website.
Radford has no need to bring up snow tracks, which are sometimes seen and videotaped in fresh, not melted, snow, since these were found in gravel.
His main point is where are the other tracks? I told him, in person, at an Idaho Bigfoot
convention, that Bigfoot, being a paranormal creature, has no need nor requirement to
leave sets of tracks and can often leave just one, which I have found often in ashes, sawdust, and ice under water.
I’ll agree with him that there is no zoological creature, but there is, based on my research,
a spiritual or even space-time creature. This shoots down all skeptics.
