Mothmen

Postby WRB » Wed Jul 09, 2003 4:18 am

well, Ive been scaring my self silly, thinking about them at night, and I need an opinion.
Mothmen are these things that show up before big accedents and "Warn" people that itll happen. It invoves weird stuff. Well, noones has an actuall picture, but people have tried to draw them, and it varies as to what they look like. mot have to do with men/moth mixes, but there were other variations.
Mothmen are supposedly real, but we have no proof. While we have no hard evidance, there were over five hundred(I think) sightings of mothmen before Trenoble, and my scatered throughout history near big explosions and the like. Accedents not coused by man. Accedents. Well, what scares me is that they aparently KNOW that the acedent will happen or something, because they are ALWAYS near accedents. Not at nine-eleven, that was not accedent, but real big accedents. Well, If they know, what are they? Goly Angels, Or Devils, or... What? It scares me, and I dont know why.

What's so scary about an early warning of an accident? I would think it rather more comforting, to know that there might be some strange supernatural being there to warn me of an impending accident. Generally a better thing to know what you're doing and not just stumble along into the future blindly. Er, yes... just some random thoughts.

It's moths that came down to eat the pancakes! YOU SEE? I AM RIGHT! BWA HA HA HA :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy :crazy

well, thats a little weird... I'm not saying its a lie, but how would people who have seen these 'mothmen' not have any proof? couldn't they have witnesses, or drawn a picture of 'em? Or was it like a planned trip to some person whos alone, who has no artistic talent what-so-ever?

People did draw pictures. I said they did.

Well, its the fact that they know. And that we dont know what they are. kinda freaky.

It was also a book. And then thers the fact that if it was a hoax, then its a big one, seeing as it lasted for a long time. And there wasnt much on TV about it, really. In fact, I dont think I ever saw anything about them on TV.

An intresting site on the subject of Mothmen is here. If you wanna look at that stuff at all. And of course there is on TV some stuff about them; that is, at least whenever some channel shows the movie "The Mothman Prophocies".

Draco, I like you and all, but seeing a combination of moth and man greet me and tell me something bad is going to happen, I'd wet my pants.

So I guess I'm rather the freak in that I think I'd be more like "Whoa, dude. Cool wings, man. What's up?", then? Oh well...

It is my impression that Mothmen are fictitious creatures such as Bigfoot and the Roswell aliens. Kind of in the same boat with the candyman, werewolves, mummies, swamp creatures, vampires and all that fun --yet fictional-- horror/sci fi stuff.

If people actually "see" these visions before/as an explosion occurs, then perhaps it has something to do with heat waves, rising vapors and other chemical reactions that might produce such an apparition.

Well, I'm no scientist and am not going to research this but I am pretty sure that a nuclear explosion would create heat waves and such no matter what the atmospheric temperature is ... :p

I mean, if you start a campfire in Antarctica, the fire is still going to burn your hand just the same as if you start one in the Mojave desert, right?

But would it create heat hours and days before it happened? After all, these are supposed to be fore-warnings, not just "duh, there was just an explosion" "oh, I didn't notice. Bye bye moth-thing.".

And also, I must say that just because there is hype and it seems unreal and there's supposedly no evidence other than witness accounts, that doesn't automatically mean something must be untrue and fictional. Black holes and generally relativity were ridiculed too until someone actually took em serious enough to seriously gather evidence and experiment instead of just scoffing. Now, I'm not saying to just believe that Mothmen exist with no evidence and on faith; no, that would be unscientific. But it would be just as unscientific to completely rule out their existence without any counter evidence.

I am not sure if it would create anything for hours or days before it exploded but I think it's a possibility because animals can sense earthquakes, and other disasters, before they happen.

Also, the Chernobyl reactor must have been leaking before it exploded, no? So, the nuclear radiation might have caused all sorts of unknown and unexplained phenomena.
