In a recent video from The Caffeinated Cryptid w/ Bobby Dizzle, author Jason McLean discusses the possibility of Bigfoot being both a paranormal and physical phenomenon. As a Biblical paranormal researcher, McLean explains his current model for cryptids, which suggests that we may be accidentally or deliberately categorizing two separate phenomena as Bigfoot. McLean argues that there are encounters that are clearly paranormal, but when the same type of encounter occurs in the woods, it is immediately labeled as a Bigfoot. He believes that there is a paranormal phenomena occurring, and that it is being mislabeled as Bigfoot. McLean also mentions that there are physical evidence attached to these encounters, which makes it difficult to label them as purely paranormal. The author and paranormal investigator also discusses the possibility of there being multiple phenomena occurring, and that what we think of as Bigfoot may actually be another separate phenomena. He encourages people to have a different conversation about the criteria we use to determine whether we are dealing with a paranormal or physical entity. Throughout the interview, McLean shares his thoughts on Bigfoot as a cryptid and how it relates to his research. He also talks about his experiences at Bigfoot conferences and his perspective on the BFRO.
