|Did Nathen encounter spiritual beings?|
All that glitters is not gold
|I wish I looked like this guy|
Nathan posted a video that purported to show he was flanked by three Bigfoot. You never see them in the video but you CLEARLY hear them. Their calls are loud but that is not what disturbed me. They sounded like young guys in their twenties. Had he simply walked up on a group of backpackers who were just saying hi? Where these stooges in the woods in on the goof? That's not what he claimed in the video. He claimed it was Sasquatch and he could see it. This claim would be challenged.
A poster on Reddit said he analyzed the videos audio and the critical sequence had been layered during the editing process. If this is true, he is a fraud. When all this was breaking, Reo removed all of his videos from YouTube and shifted his operation over to FaceBook where he posted a video explaining that he never manipulated the audio, only raised the volume. What he did do was confirm that during the critical sequence, the Reddit poster was right...something was played with.
I wonder is any of this will matter. After all, Nathen is seen as a messiah, a modern day Brigham Young leading us into the wilderness to find Zion. His mission fits perfectly into the Mythos of LDS
and issues of faith. To be a Mormon you must believe that Joseph Smith went into the woods in upstate New York and received the golden tablets from the angel Moroni. If you do not believe this, you cannot be a Mormon. With Nathen, he makes it easy, just believe in him and his mission. That's all. You will be sanctified for doing so.
For Bigfoot researchers, faith does not apply. Nathan either had an encounter with three Sasquatch's or he did not. The faith of his followers is strong. Nathanism should stand or fall on this claim, but only if you use critical thinking.
To his followers, he is now a prophet. He has reached out and touched the face of Bigfoot and they will never believe otherwise. He has lead them to Zion on a mountain top in Utah. He, and they, will reign in glory. The faithful have found salvation.
