I see the term 'Mothman' as referring to more than one entity.
Some witnesses reported seeing the traditional large winged humanoid, some reported a large humanoid with no wings, whilst others saw what appeared to
be a large bird etc. Of course this is just in the Point Pleasant area in the 60's. There have been other similar sightings around the world, and they
too have their variables, but
also their similarities, for example the Cornish 'Owlman' in the UK bears a striking resemblance to the Mothman,
but has a slightly different appearance to what the people in West Virginia were seeing.
I don't believe it is stated in the link below, but some of the main Owlman witnesses were girls who were menstruating at the time. There is the
famous incident of Mothman chasing an ambulance which was carrying a consignment of human blood just outside Point Pleasant. There are the
'blood-drained' cattle mutilations on the Skinwalker ranch in Utah, where Mothman like entities, along with other cryptids, have been seen.....I would
think maybe these beings, if they are indeed all related, are possibly responsible for the origins of our traditional/folk vampire legends?
I personally go with the extra-dimensional theory. The Olwman was sighted near an old church, in many parts of the UK and Ireland these very old
churches were actually built upon much older pagan sites of veneration(for various reasons which I won't go into here), these sites were frequently
located on or near 'ley lines', areas where it was believed that powerful junctions in the Earth's natural energy grid could be accessed.....portals
to the other-world?.....a place where cross-overs from other dimensions could occur maybe? There are also the mysterious prehistoric 'Indian Mounds'
in West Virginia, not far from Point Pleasant, given that these early Native American sites were possibly also built in an area of 'geo-energy'
significance, could there maybe be a correlation between the Mothman sightings in the 60's and the Owlman sightings in the 70's in this regards? I
dunno, it's just part of my pet theory for the whole 'Mothman' enigma
People can speculate all they like, the answer is nobody really knows what Mothman is. I suggest you read John A Keel's book The Mothman
. Mr Keel was in Point Pleasant at the time of the sightings, he interviewed the witnesses, did a lot of leg work and dedicated a lot of
his life to this subject.
