Bigfoot = Gigantopithecus?

For a while now, some Bigfoot researchers have believed that Bigfoot is actually a direct descendant of an ancient primate called Gigantopithecus Blackii. Gigantopithecus bones were discovered in Hong Kong about 80 years ago. The ape was believed to be almost 10ft tall when upright and could have weighed nearly 1,200lbs.

There is now some evidence that this primate could have lived among early humans for as long as a million years. These primates were believed to have become extint about 100,000 years ago.

Here is an artist's representation of what Gigantopithecus Blackii could have looked like:

Knowing this is a representation of the creature, it still strikes me how much it resembles eye-witness accounts of Bigfoot. I am not saying Bigfoot is Gigantopithecus Blackii, but if we are trying to scientifically explain the existence of Bigfoot, then I think this is a plausible theory.

Maybe news stories like this will show that Bigfoot is not a figment of the imagination or a product of pop culture. Here is scientific evidence that a creature fitting Bigfoot's description lived alongside humans.

Who's to say it doesn't still live alongside humans?
