Three of the "reasons' are exactly the same ("My family smelled it, heard
it, and I saw it on July 1, 2000 at the Oregon Caves National Monument in
southern Oregon."), and the First reason is:

"The Gallop Poll revealed that most Americans believe in God, yet they have
never seen God. (What is so difficult about believing in the existence of a
large mountain ape that you can smell, hear, and see?)"

And a quick browse through the site reveals:

Under "Biblical Parallels":

"Disclaimer: These parallels were put together by myself and a pastor friend
of mine. The Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) is not a Christian
group nor do they endorse these parallels in any manner. I happen to be a
Christian by faith and I have been brainstorming to make sense out of my
recent encounter with Bigfoot. Believe me, Bigfoot does exist. Please
believe me, Jesus does too"


'Nuff said?
