So I put the following post yesterday in both the General Selection and Yeti Theory . Lots of folks have read it, but only one reply. It seems pretty clear to me that no one wants to deal with the obvious wall of silence regarding the bizarre total failure of anyone...in all these years...ever taking steps to have the Menk/Yeti photo scientifically/expertly analyzed. People don't even talk about this fact...more or less actually have said analysis done. Very very weird. Here, read my original post, a forum members reply and then pay special attention to my response. All attached below:
"Im new to this forum, so am not sure if I'm doing this right. Also looks like it's been awhile since folks have been talking about the Yeti Theory. Anyone that responds to this post, just be respectful. I get so sick of weirdo trolls who come into forums just to cause trouble. I'm actually interested in talking to people who think it was a Yeti/Menk who killed the Dyatlov group. Not interested in being convinced by skeptics or arguing with them. All the other theories seem pretty weak to me. Modernized/non-Indigenous folks just can't wrap their heads around accepting that the Bigfoot People are real.
Here's my thoughts. I'm American-Indian (aka Native American) and was raised in my culture. I really can't share too much publicly about what we know regarding the Bigfoot Man, but I can assure you that he is real. Looking at the Menk/Yeti photo taken by one of the Dyatlov group, it is clear to me that that critter is HUGE! Over 8 feet tall. It was not a Human.
Hasn't anyone wondered why no indepth photographic analysis by experts has been done on this photo? The Patterson-Gimlin Film images has been analyzed over and over again. Almost every documentary on that sighting has some expert analyzing the footage. Yet, from my considerable browsing of the internet...I have yet to find one truly expert analysis of the Dyatlov Menk photo...and certainly no documentary dedicated to doing such an analysis. But bizarrely no one seems to notice this?
From an indigenous perspective...1) given all the warnings the Dyatlov Group received regarding the dangers going up to that "mountain of death", 2) their own writings saying they saw the Snowman/Menk and 3) an actual photo was taken by them of a Menk...yep, I do think a Menk killed them. I'm getting pretty annoyed at White folks always ridiculing/dismissing Indigenous knowledge regarding such matters. The Native Mansi would know and Jesus...the Dyatlov Group even said they had seen the "Snowman" and took a photo of it.
Makes me think the Russian Oligarchs were and are acting just like the American Oligarchs. If they ever admit that the Bigfoot Man is real, then a movement to protect his habitat would begin and they wouldn't be able to get at all the timber and mining wealth. But all these supposed "experts" on Dyatlov that we keep seeing in documentaries...lack the balls to fess up and admit that it was indeed likely a Bigfoot Man that killed these people. And these experts sure as heck aren't going to do a real photo analysis of the Dyatlov Yeti photo. Even if they were willing...some very powerful interests with influence over the media companies overseeing their shows/expeditions don't want them to touch the Menk Theory. BTW, here in the USA, there are numerous Native American stories of Bigfoot groups up in the Pacific Northwest that were cannibals and would kidnap/kill humans."
Reply from a Brit Forum Member:
"Really interesting what you have to say, although a shame you're not able to share more about your culture's knowledge of the Yeti/Menk. I try and stay open minded about everything as the world is a strange place with so much we don't know. I find the photo not clear enough to be able to say for sure what or who it could be. Some people are sure it is one of the group or maybe someone following them. Have to agree with you about an in depth analysis of it. What makes you so sure it was the Yeti/Menk if you don't mind me asking?
"Again, not trying to debate or defend my position. Hoping to meet folks who have looked into the Menk Theory and know of some indepth analysis of the photo. I'd just be repeating myself in this reply. I already said why I believe it was a Menk. Thanks for your reply though. I do find it very curious that most folks totally avoid doing a real investigation/analysis of the photo...and no one comments about it. You'd at least think that the serious Bigfoot Researcher folks out there who are always in documentaries etc...would be all over it. Using the best tools, technology and science. This photo has been available for a long time, yet nada has been done. These experts don't even talk about doing an analysis. Yet Patterson-Gimblin and other photos/footage have been examined a gazillion times. This silence is very very weird and it indicates to me that prominent researchers have been told by powerful forces to steer clear of it."
