Mormon Bigfoot: Searching for Something to Believe In

When a post-Mormon finds out that a compelling Bigfoot “documentary” is actually a work of fiction, he must again deal with doubt.

Soon after returning from my mission, I sat down on a curb in downtown Atlanta and wept over my lost faith. I have since made peace with my Mormonism and now view it as a beautiful metaphor, an agent for stability, and an tool for spiritual growth.

Since leaving the Church, I have gone on to study many other philosophies and faiths, eventually finding a beautiful amalgamation of my spiritual views in the quest to determine the truth behind the Bigfoot phenomenon (which interestingly enough is led by an LDS professor in Idaho.)
