My name is Shannon Gilmour. I am an indie Christian author
who has survived to tell a story...

To some it is one whopper of a tale, but to me, I can only remain true to my experience. I detail that experience in the book entitled 'Non Existent Entities'.

To read my detailed encounters, order my books at Amazon.

Final thoughts on Melba Ketchum

The past few months have been fairly eventful in the Sasquatch community with hoaxers revealing their so called bigfoot kills, and bigfoot captures; and the latest from Melba Ketchum was just the coup de gras that added further blight on an often mocked phenomenon.

This week, Melba revealed that her documentation that she submitted for peer review in a scientific journal failed to pass the review board's approval, and instead of telling the public exactly why the paper was rejected, she publically stated that the scientists were not ready to accept what her findings revealed.

Here's her commentary:

In Melba's defence, I understand her hurt, as she and others have invested so much time and effort into this project, however one glaring obvious defect in her study that I for one cannot ignore is the  listed group of scientists involved with her study. I cannot figure out why they have not come out publically now that the paper has been made public to back up Melba and her documenation? Surely their word and factual evidence would exhaunerate Melba, right? I also find it curious that while the press has interviewed Melba, and some other people who believe in Melba and who have provided her with the evidence AND FUNDING in order to conduct her study, the journalists have not sought to interview the scientists mentioned. Is it because no such scientists exist?

What is Sasquatch?

This is one of the MOST COMMON QUESTIONS I RECIEVE to date.  I can tell you what they are, and from these posts, I think you can gain a general idea of what I think - wait, what I KNOW they are.

As much as I want to convince you of that belief, I hope at the very least this blog presents to you some of the facts that will help you draw your own conclusions that line up in your heart and mind what maybe you do not want to know.

The reality is that sasquatch are not what they seem.  They have a way of making us believe that they are what they seem to be, based on what our hearts and minds want to believe. To some these creatures appear to be animal, and then to others, human. For me, I didn't really have a belief either way. I just believed that they existed and began to pray that God would reveal to me the truth about what these beasts were.

The value of what if?

When you read people's supernatural encounters of sasquatch, it is easy to dismiss these encounters and judge the person who makes such claims. It's far easier to believe that someone is a schizophrenic, or shows signs of manic behavior, is a drug addict, alcoholic or taking perscription meds than it is to allow yourself to wonder- what if.

What if people are having real supernatural encounters with sasquatch? What does that then imply?

I am not an alcoholic, drug addict, I do not suffer from any mental disease or defect, I do not have a history of taking perscription meds ( Except for asthma when I was a child, and the odd perscription of antibiotics) I do not take medication, over the counter or perscription. (Just for the record.)

The implications of every day ordinary healthy sane people seeing such a creature in such a way has huge implications and it is far easier to deny than to realize that we cannot possibly stand against or defend ourselves against such things.. This is why I have tried to delve into the science behind the workings of sasquatch.
