I was thinking we could formulate what everyone thinks about the Mothman. What exactly do you think it is? Personally.

Personally, I don't think it is anything. Mothman? Sure, skepticism can be made about bigfoot, aliens and ufos, ghosts, but Mothman? It just seems way to lame to be considered anything that people can actually believe in.

I'm not bashing anyone the believes in Mothman, I'm just saying I don't understand how the myth got so popular. Think about it. Mothman... Maybe Sleestacks are real, too?

With most cryptids, I personally think there is some sort of 'Mothman' out there, but evidence says otherwise.

Of course, theres true stories and even a film based on it, until it shows itself to the public, theres no way of nowing for sure.

The most info. I've found on him came out of Point Pleasent, West Virginia.

There's a 12 foot tall, stainless steel sculpture of the Mothman, by artist Robert Roach, in downtown Point Pleasant.

I think a lot of the sightings were owls and other huge birds.

I had never heard of mothman until joining this site but from what I have heard I guess it is certainly very possible for something to exist along the lines of mothman.
I just wonder, why do all these mythical beasts stay in hiding?
Nessie, Bigfoot, and all of the popular ones are probably to some extent true. But all the lesser known ones, could just as well be someone looking for attention. Its just my thoughts and obviously if you were to have witnessed any of these strange encounters and believe what you saw was mythical, then you are more likely to believe that it was a mythical encounter rather than anything it could also be.
Not discreditting anyone but I'm just getting myt opinion across.

I tend in my mind, think its the Flatwoods monster. That was sighted by numerous people. It did fit some simularities. I do not have a link to a site for the flatwoods monster, although google it to find it.

It's either a big-a** owl (likely), a mutation or science expeiment gone wrong (remote), or a mass hallucination (not likely). As for me, I don't care as long as it doesn't come near me.

I'm very skeptic about the mothman. There is no evidence except personal encounters.

That being said. I always thought that if real, it was more of a grim reaper type of entity. Everybody knows about Point Pleasant. But every once in a while a story will pop up about someone seening a something that resembles the mothman, and after witnessing this they turn up dead. Fast spreading cancer, car crash, or if not them someone close to them.

Like I said, I'm very skeptic, but its just a trend that I have notice with possible mothman sightings.

I don't know ... perhaps a death demon of some sort.

My elderly mom has an interesting thought. She says she thinks mothman was an aliens pet that got loose when they were visiting earth.

who knows.

I tend to believe that the Mothman is some kind of interdimensional anomaly.

I love how "tin foil hat" that sounds. I'm going to get t-shirts made that have only that phrase on the front.

Maybe the mothman is a spiritual being of some sort?

if the stories are true, then not really a good being.

I don't know much of the Mothman at all, but I never rule out the existance of any mythical creature. I'm absolutely convinced there are freaky things that inhabit inner earth solely based on the freaky things that live in deep sea.

I believe the mothman is either a being (most likely intelligent) who is drawn to rural areas (avoids big cities) where a future event that causes mass fear and negative energy occurs. Its methodology goes opposite what most creatures do in these situations, such as how few animals were killed in the Tsunami in Indonesia, as their senses told them to leave.

Or he is a mental projection of negative energy traveling in a backwards wave from a negative point in time. Essentially the energy is broadcast and takes on the form of a bipedal creature.

I know you're saying these two things are totally different, but there was a reason I mentioned both. As what I really feel is that the Mothman falls somewhere between these two theories. At what point I have absolutely no idea, but I believe both forms play a role to some degree in the Mothman...

Call me crazy...

The thing about Mothman is, I cannot come up with any conclusion.
The more I look into it, the more questions I have.

One thing I know for sure is, I sure wouldn't wont to see a pair of huge red eyes peering at me while out alone.

I have come to the unavoidable conclusion that Mothman was a very cool/creepy movie and I'll have to buy the DVD.
