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 (see article below), Kimball contends that Bigfoot are an intelligent species similar to humans, rather than just an undiscovered animal.
