Is Bigfoot chronicled in the bible? In the story of Esau we find what might be the most ancient account of these creatures as well as a parable detailing the divergance of two different species of human. In Genesis 25:19-34 we find the following enigmatic passages:
19 This is the account of the family line of Abraham’s son Isaac.
Abraham became the father of Isaac,
20 and Isaac was forty years old when he married Rebekah daughter of Bethuel the Aramean from Paddan Aram[a] and sister of Laban the Aramean.
21 Isaac prayed to the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was childless. The Lord answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.
22 The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, “Why is this happening to me?” So she went to inquire of the Lord.
23 The Lord said to her,
“Two nations are in your womb,
and two peoples from within you will be separated;
one people will be stronger than the other,
and the older will serve the younger.”
24 When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb.
25 The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau.[b]
26 After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau’s heel; so he was named Jacob.[c] Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.
27 The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was content to stay at home among the tents.
28 Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
29 Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished.
30 He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!” (That is why he was also called Edom.[d])
31 Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.”
32 “Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?”
33 But Jacob said, “Swear to me first.” So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob.
34 Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left.
35 So Esau despised his birthright.
What are we to make of this curious account? It clearly describes Esau being covered in red hair and that he was a wild man of the forest. It is very interesting that he sells his 'birthright' for a bowl of stew. This could be an ancient way of trying to understand why these creatures are seperate and apart from humanity. The P.I.A. is currently utilizing very sophisticated equipment in an attempt to prove beyond all doubt that Sasquatch's are real and hiding among our forests. We believe that they are doing something with their dead, maybe even in a ritualistic fashion just as primitive cultures have always done. It could be that they even consume their dead as a form of ancestor worship. We believe that they possess a human like intelligence and super human physical abilities. One thing is for sure in recent years, groups like the Erickson Project have made substantial headway into proving that these creatures are real and the race is on to prove it to the world.
