Archaeologists and Egyptologists (and grave robbers) have been scouring Egypt for over 100 years. They had found all they were going to find....until it happened 4 or 5 years ago....they found the biggest tomb they had ever found AND it was in the Valley of the Kings!!! Right under their noses. Troy and Bjarmaland were considered just legendary cities....until it happened....they found them. LOL There's temples in Cambodia, Viet Nam, and Peru that were legends....until it happened...they found them. The coelacanth was extinct and we could only study them via fossils....until it happened...they found live ones. It was a known fact that giant squid existed because they would find them in the bellies of whales (and could see scars on the whales from the fight). However, it wasn't until recently that the spotted a live one for the first time. Nothing could possibly live in Methane Hydrates (ice)....scientific fact....then a couple of years ago they found bacteria and worms that live in it. There's been several "lost tribes" that were thought to only be legendary...then they found them They have known all of the different species of humans for years....then a few years back, they found the "hobbit" species and everything they taught me in school about this subject is now wrong. There's lots of cities that were thought to be legends because they were only mentioned in the Bible and nothing else. Then they found the Dead Sea Scrolls and all of the sudden, these "legendary" cities took on more significance to scientists I could go on and on, but I think I've made my point. All of these discoveries were fairly recent and they turned the scientific community upside down. I don't believe in Big Foot. However, I don't not believe either. I do find it interesting that peoples from around the world have similar descriptions of a weird animal that is hairy and walks upright.
