Yes…They are Real!

If you want to be honest, modern television is merely a rerun of a rerun from the 1960’s or 70’s with a modern twist.  Despite this fact, the boob tube lures people to their couch or recliners nightly, searching for something new.  To unwind after a long or tough day, entertainment helps individuals ease or forget the pain of life until tomorrow when the same vicious cycle continues.

As for me, I’m a sucker for anything with Big Foot, Loch Ness Monster or unknown species people have had encounter with or seen.  If a show is popular, several others will pop up with different titles, but are nearly identical.  Whether you prefer Monsters in America, Mountain Monsters or Monster Quest, each contain one fatal flaw.  None of them use the Bible as a source of reference to prove monsters are real, created by God.

According to Psalm 74:13-14, evidence was found at the bottom of the Red Sea.  When the Lord allowed Moses to part the sea in half, Leviathan’s became beached, eventually dying for beasts of the desert to feast upon.  Most experts agree that the term Leviathan is what modern Cryptozoologists refer to as the Kraken, a real life sea monster, giant squid.  If some of these creatures survived the flood and ice age, I can go out on a limb and boldly proclaim, “yes… they are real!”

Reruns from the Past

Although Trekies will always view Leonard Nimoy as Spock, for me he was the host of my favorite show growing up, “In Search Of.”  One of the few books I read outside of school was by the author Daniel Cohen.  Cohen and Nimoy were a perfect compliment as one researched mysteries like Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster and Yeti while the other interviewed eyewitnesses  to prove whether or not these legends were fact or fiction.  If you look closely, today’s programs are imitations, re-branding old titles with modern names.

For instance, once In Search Of ran its course in time, Unsolved Mysteries was born passing the torch to a new generation of inquiring minds.  As this became passe, Monster Quest took over with an emphasize on unknown creatures supposedly living in the United States and abroad.  Whenever viewership waned, another show arose like Finding Big Foot, Swamp Wars and Monsters and Mysteries to take its place.  The question must be asked, “are these animals real or is Hollywood deceiving millions annually with reruns from the past?”

If you use the Bible as a reference for history, Psalm 104:24-26 suggests there are creatures hidden from mankind.  The Leviathan is a mythological sea creature, perhaps similar to giant squid or encounters with the Kraken off the coasts of Greenland and Norway.  Despite these facts, the skeptics will continue to doubt until a body is found, clear evidence is captured on film or they have their own close encounter.  Until then, don’t be surprised to see new programs re-branding old titles like reruns from the past.
