For some reason there seems to be a lot of hand wringing over the latest blog post by Steve Kulls, found here. Most people say the evidence clearly shows a hoax in the works and a few strongly disagree with the Squatchdetective. Personally, I agree with Mr. Kulls. The photos presented in the FB/FB Camper video, and declared by FB/FB as factual, are not factual at all.
The comment section on the post I put up last night went back and forth as to who is responsible for adding the photos in question, why the photos were there, and why didn't Rick correct the mistakes.
Rick had the first video up on his blog for at least 24 hours before he addressed the glaring problem. Dyer had a radio show in progress, so I'll knock off a couple of hours for the sake of fairness.
One person in the comment section more or less accused me of not giving Dyer a fair trial as it were.
First of all, I believe this entire thing is a HOAX, I have never made any bones about it. YES, this blog is biased because I think it's a hoax. Rick Dyer has NEVER given quarter to anyone on his blog, but I said I would address a post Rick Dyer made, and I stick to my word.
I'll start off by saying that Rick never indicated if he was involved or collaborated with FB/FB in the actual production of the video, or if he had a chance to preview the video before it aired on YouTube. Dyer can clear that up himself if he wishes to do so.
This is what Rick said on his blog:
In Dyer's opening statement he says "The photo of the fire was taken off of my Facebook page by fbfb look at the date when the fire photo was posted. The fire photo was posted way before September of 2012. The fire was an honest mistake by FBFB. That was not the rib fire....lol"
I would interpret this as meaning Rick had no hand in the production or editing of the video, but since my words get twisted by some of his fans, I will say Rick needs to make an unambiguous statement addressing this particular subject.
In Rick's second statement he says "Not the same tent or fire and over a year apart!!
Dyer said this, not me. Am I supposed to guess what he meant by this? If you take that quote at face value, Rick is saying the fire picture in the video is not the same fire picture as the one in his Response to Johnny video.
This where Dyer always gets himself in to trouble, he makes abrupt comments without making himself clear. I know what he meant, but believe it or not, there are people who think the two fire pictures are not of the same fire. Hopefully this gif will clear it up for good.
As far as the tent pictures go, I think they are at the very least the same make of tent. Both tents are the same colour and the blue tent flys over the top of the tents have the same curvature. This is in reference to the tent in the background, not the one in the foreground. Both tents have a gray border at the lower portion of the tent.
Rick has tossed the ball square in the court of FB/FB but so far there has been no comments made by the group.
Facebook Find Bigfoot did post this comment on their wall. FB/FB
"FB/FB has been in touch with Minnow Films this week and as noted by several of our Fans, the company is preparing an official statement about the documentary, to be released next week. We don't know the date or time of the statement or what it contains. However, Morgan Matthews and his team are very aware of the interest in this story."
Some folks have dismissed Steve's post as trivial and unimportant to the bigger picture, but I personally think the video by FB/FB is completely relevant. If you are going to present a story of this magnitude (if it's real), then facts need to be triple checked. There is no room for error.
I would think it prudent that FB/FB clear up all this confusion and obvious inconsistencies.
In the future I will try to be as charitable to Rick as he is with me, that's the most I can promise.
