Ian Punnett welcomed expert in ancient manuscripts, Glenn Kimball, who discussed evidence for intelligent 'ape people' (or Bigfoot) in 2,000 year-old texts. Specifically, he cited a document written by the Essenes called 'Dadam and Mueve,' which he said was taken by Joseph of Arimathea to Great Britain. According to Kimball, the creation tale speaks of a "she-ape" and her relation to "Heavenman."
He suggested there were a variety of species on Earth prior to Adam and Eve, and that the ape people may have lived concurrently with the Neanderthals. Bigfoot families sought refuge in caves and caverns during cataclysms, and likely make their home in such environments today, he continued.
Other cultures, such as in China and Mexico, may have been aware of these large creatures, he noted.In contrast to researchers such as Jeffrey Meldrum, Kimball contends that Bigfoot are an intelligent species similar to humans, rather than just an undiscovered animal.
Bigfoot is described in reports as a large hairy ape-like creature, in a range of 6--10 feet (2--3 m) tall, weighing in excess of 500 pounds (230 kg), and covered in dark brown or dark reddish hair. Self-styled witnesses have described large eyes, a pronounced brow ridge, and a large, low-set forehead; the top of the head has been described as rounded and crested, similar to the sagittal crest of the male gorilla. Bigfoot is commonly reported to have a strong, unpleasant smell by those who claim to have encountered it. The enormous footprints for which it is named have been as large as 24 inches (60 cm) long and 8 inches (20 cm) wide. While most casts have five toes — like all known apes — some casts of alleged Bigfoot tracks have had numbers ranging from two to six. Some have also contained claw marks, making it likely that a portion came from known animals such as bears, which have five toes and claws. Some proponents have claimed that Bigfoot is omnivorous and mainly nocturnal.
