Could somebody explain to me how an ordinary ape like the sasquatch got to be deemed paranormal?

This will be a general purpose post in reply to your posts across the forums.

1) hi, welcome to the boards and don't piss off the Grammarians For Freedom.

2) please learn how to compose proper posts. So far you posts have been minimal in the extreme. Quite frankly, I have heard better-phrased questions from 5 year olds. Once you have hung around here enough that we start to know the person behind the posts you can cut back on more formal posting details and phrase things in this way.
As it is, you are leaving out so many necessary details that we don't really know whether or not to take you seriously, whether you are trying to be funny, are just ignorant or an idiot (ignorance can easily be cured. Idiocy is hard to do anything with).

Also, if you post a question one place you do not need to post it again in the same forum.

First off, cryptozoology, which is the study of creatures that are hidden and may or may not exist, can, and often does, belong in the paranormal realm. And before you ask how, let me remind you that the definition of the term "paranormal" is, in general terms, something or an experience that does not fall into scientific or normal explanation or experience. Therefore, things like UFO's, ghosts, and, yes, sasquatch, will fall into the paranormal category. Why? Because you can't explain it. Ergo, sasquatch, falling into the cryptozoology category, is, in fact, paranormal. He is not, as you put it, and ordinary ape. Ordinary apes are not seven feet tall, walk upright, and live in Oregon. Sasquatch does.

Not quite right, Mae. Inexplicable phenomena are the realm of science. Just because we don't understand something doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Things which people believe in but which have yet to be proven to exist despite the ages of attempts (and are attributed qualities which directly contradict what we know of natural laws) are paranormal/supernatural.

Argueably, paranormal studies are science. They seek to explain that which others claim to have experienced in a rational, provable, and repeatable manner. Unfortunstely, there are a lot of stubborn believers who get mixed in the lot.

(We all agree this was a poor attempt at trolling, right?)
