This is such clear video that it is either a guy sitting in the wilderness in a saquatch suit or it's the real deal.

Nonsense. It's the usual kind of out-of-focus video we have come to expect for this kind of thing. I'll give you that, in comparison to some UFO and Bigfoot videos, this is a masterpiece of cinema.This is such clear video...
No points for guessing which side of the line you come down on this....that it is either a guy sitting in the wilderness in a saquatch suit or it's the real deal.
What do you think the probabilities are for those options?This is such clear video that it is either a guy sitting in the wilderness in a saquatch suit or it's the real deal.

You know what else has been witnessed thousands of times? Hunters in ghillie suits.What's the probability of a Sasquatch existing at all, that has been witnessed thousands of times in the forests of Western U.S. and whose distinctive footprints have been cast and collected hundreds of times by scientists including anthropologist Dr. Jeff Meldrum of Idaho State University? These aren't hunters in ghillie suits.

No, it's pretty easy, really.I'll add that estimating the probabilities of particular hypotheses like this being true seems to me to be largely intuitive. I'm not sure how it could be given more statistical rigor.
Zero, for that particular combination of events.What's the probability of a Sasquatch existing at all, that has been witnessed thousands of times in the forests of Western U.S. and whose distinctive footprints have been cast and collected hundreds of times by scientists including anthropologist Dr. Jeff Meldrum of Idaho State University?
Well, some of them aren't. Some of them are people dressed up in other costumes.These aren't hunters in ghillie suits.
Nobody "dismisses the likelihood", if that just means that there's a minuscule non-zero probability that there might be some non-human hominids out there somewhere. But I think you're mincing words, trying to give the false impression that the chances are better than minuscule.I don't dismiss the likelihood of non-human hominins still existing out there. I see it as a remote possibility.
Pay attention, Magical Realist!But I think that in this Colorado case I would weight the "saquatch/ghillie suit hypothesis as more likely in my own estimation.
You could apply Bayes' theorem, taking into account the fact that no conclusive evidence of Bigfoot has been found in the whole of recorded human history.I'll add that estimating the probabilities of particular hypotheses like this being true seems to me to be largely intuitive.

I thought the scientific community had pretty much dismissed the claims?What's the probability of a Sasquatch existing at all, that has been witnessed thousands of times in the forests of Western U.S. and whose distinctive footprints have been cast and collected hundreds of times by scientists including anthropologist Dr. Jeff Meldrum of Idaho State University?

We have our own beasts in the UK, the Loch Ness Monster and beast of Bodmin.What's the probability of a Sasquatch existing at all, that has been witnessed thousands of times in the forests of Western U.S. and whose distinctive footprints have been cast and collected hundreds of times by scientists including anthropologist Dr. Jeff Meldrum of Idaho State University?

Quite. Almost every culture has its fables about imaginary beasts. Every summer in Britain we get stories in the newspapers about the Loch Ness Monster or the Beast of Bodmin, the latter generally accompanied by a blurry shot of what is fairly obviously a domestic cat, taken at ground level to make it look bigger.We have our own beasts in the UK, the Loch Ness Monster and beast of Bodmin.
Nessie what ever she is, is not a dinosaur for obvious reasons.
The beast of Bodmin appears to be a large cat not indigenous to the UK.
Very unlikely BUT we know big cats are elsewhere on the planet and could have got here somehow.
