I've always been fascinated by werewolves. Even at the tender age of 4 or 5, I was allowed to watch reruns of "Kolchak The Nightstalker." One of the
most memorable episodes was about a werewolf on a cruise-ship. And then came the BEST werewolf movie --IMHO: "The Howling." The sequels were
terrible, but "The Howling" captured werewolves like never before. They looked REAL. They were menacing. And the scene where the guy changes right
there in front of the lady was absolutely TERRIFYING. But, of course, all of this was just dark fantasy. Werewolves existed in the imagination
A few years ago, I heard Linda Godfrey on the radio show Coast to Coast AM. She was a werewolf researcher/investigator. What!? She was talking
about her latest book, "Hunting the American Werewolf," and also referenced her first book, "The Beast of Bray Road." Her latest book, "The Michigan
Dog-man" is now available. Back to point: I was astonished to learn that in the American midwest (mainly), there had been so many sightings.
Apparently, Bigfoot has company in the form of man-wolves and/or dog-men.
I found it eye-opening that so many people had been scared witless in the midwest (and elsewhere) by these werewolves. The sheer number of sightings
and reports proves that *something* is going on. Some think that the werewolves are real because the sightings usually happen near a source of fresh
water, --alluding to the fact that sure, they would need water to sustain themselves. Another theory is that our country is dotted with caves and
cavern systems ---more than most people think, and that the entrances to these systems are in remote areas where few venture, and that
cryptozoological creatures like Bigfoot, werewolves, lizardmen and what-have-you, take advantage of these secret caverns to hide and cross vast
Another theory involves the thought that we have no physical evidence of these creatures because they are not merely flesh-and-blood beings, that they
are part phantom or mystical entity comprised of focused energies from rampant id fantasies. Such a creature can be "manifested" and/or "thought"
into existence by someone's highly passionate and focused imagination; such a creature is called a TULPA. In fact, I had just read an article on this
by Nick Redfern just before coming here to ATS and seeing this thread. How timely. Here's a link to that article:
Very wonderful post. S&F. And yes, I believe you can flag and star a thread without commenting, though that usually isn't my style. Stars and flags
merely attest to someone liking the material.
