SKEPTIC: Please tell me that you don’t really believe bigfoot exists.
BELIEVER: It could be true. You can’t prove it isn’t.
SKEPTIC: Of course not. But I can’t prove flying saucers and leprechauns don’t exist either, but until someone traps a leprechaun or introduces me to E.T. I’m going to be skeptical.
BELIEVER: But they have pictures of bigfoot. They have footprints. They have film. Heck, there’s even a TV show.
SKEPTIC: Next, you’re going to tell me “Gilligan’s Island” is a documentary. A few fuzzy photos, some fake footprints, and some jokester in a gorilla suit doesn’t prove anything.
BELIEVER: Maybe they’re just really good at hiding. How do you know?
SKEPTIC: Okay, explain this: assuming these hairy giants exist, they must be rare right?
SKEPTIC: So, how do they find each other to breed?
BELIEVER: Maybe they meet in secret places.
SKEPTIC: …and where are the dead bigfeet?
BELIEVER: I think that’s bigfoots. Maybe they’re spirit animals. That’s it! They go straight to the spirit realm.
SKEPTIC: You keep moving the goal posts.
BELIEVER: Maybe they don’t have to mate. Maybe they’re immortal.
SKEPTIC: It’s not getting any more convincing.
BELIEVER: I got it! The flying saucers pick up the bodies. That’s why we don’t--
SKEPTIC: —and that is what you might call a “Hail Mary.”
BELIEVER: That’s the problem with you skeptics. You lack imagination.
SKEPTIC: (sigh) It gets lonely in an evidence-based universe.
