Would you rather we caught a bigfoot, or mothman?

I'd prefer mothman, not that I believe in mothman...it's more likely that bigfoot exists than mothman because bigfoot is far more plausible.

Am I the only one who finds the bigfoot thing kinda bland? I like the subject of cryptozoology, it's fascinating, but bigfoot bores me, because...well, it's just a big ape-like thing, whereas mothman is really quite mysterious and almost paranormal.

Don't get me wrong, it'd be cool if they proved once and for all that bigfoot was real, but consequently, I'd forget all about it and be largely unamazed...but if they caught mothman, or a jersey devil...that'd be quite remarkable.

Seems more people are desperately seeking the huge ape type thing, and I always wondered why. As a product of reality, of nature, bigfoot is plausible...I don't understand why people care about it so much.

Be like discovering a new lizard or something...we know lizards exist, this is just another type of lizard we've never seen before...cool, but not that impressive.

I'd rather we found some mythical monster...even a unicorn would be more interesting than a large apeloid.

Sorry for the rant, but seriously...if you had the choice right now, to prove conclusively once and for all that either bigfoot or mothman are real...which would you choose?

Assuming both are real and both can be caught? Bigfoot. No question.

Mothman, by the legends, would be a one trick pony so to speak. A bringer of doom, gloom and general bad tidings. Well, capturing that would keep cryptozoologists busy for years ..but after the media hoopla? Who'd care much?

Bigfoot on the other hand... Well now... The suggestions would seem to be we have a whole species of seldom seen, highly intelligent and crafty creatures. Capturing one of them could lead to serious answers about our own past, history and perhaps even deep ancestry. I vote twice for Bigfoot!

Yeah, you're probably right...still be cool if they nabbed a mothman, it'd be more impressive.

Besides, if mothman is real - he could possibly teach us as much or perhaps even more than bigfoot, it's just a guess but I'll stick my neck out and say that probably more people have claimed a sighting of a bigfoot than of mothman.

I don't know if this is a good thng or not with regards to my stance on this issue..it could indicate that there are fewer mothmen than bigfeet. I think we'd learn potentially very much from a mothman, especially if it can foresee or predict disasters, etc.

Thanks.

Well scientists are already making man-moths no need to catch them...

considering both creatures... well... "abilities", I'd have to go for the Mothman... we could learn a lot from that guy. If of course we learned to contain him... somehow...

Mothman for sure...leave bigfoot in peace.

Aah, Gervais, Pilkington and Merchant - I could listen to them all night, Karl is probably the sheeple'st sheeple ever but you gotta love that little round-headed...

On a serious note, what do you guys think they'd do with a bigfoot if they caught one, if anyone caught one?

I'm guessing it'd most likely be dead rather quickly...yes, we...eh, wanted to know what its face was made of...yeah, what? What's it made of...eaaah, you don't wanna...you wanna know that? Ummm, some...stufffff (read it in the voice of Ricky Gervais).

They'd bloody kill it, wouldn't they? Yeah, let it run free...catch a mothman, see what you get

I would choose the Mothman. Even though Bigfoot has not been captured we know quite a bit more about him/them than the Mothman or Jersey Devil. I'd be interested to know what scientists would learn from such a capture- while I was at an incredibly safe distance, of course!

difficult question
to get some real proof of bigfoot would be very awesome
but mothman seems to have more supernatural powers
if bigfoot was just some kind of pre human type creature i would definately choose mothman
although im quite sure that will never happen

Yeah, I've always been quite intrigued with those cryptids that were more bizarre than any typical, seemingly more earthly creature.

Mothman is a really bizarre, almost (quite possibly if real) alien-like entity whereas bigfoot, and to some extent even nessie, seem more natural to me and less remarkable. I suppose it's the blurring, fine line between the paranormal and cryptozoology.

Even something like an elf or gnome (not that I believe in elves or gnomes) would be less of a find for me, because they're like miniature humans.

If you could prove the existence of any one cryptid, which would you choose? I'd probably plump for mothman because it's such a bizarre entity. If I could prove, once and for all, that any single cryptid exists, and possibly see it if real - I'd go for mothman. If he's real and makes my eyes bleed, I've only myself to blame and I shan't come crying to any of you, I promise.

Unicorns are real. They are just large, and gray, and we call them Rhinos...

Are you serious ?

Mothmen are very powerful negative entities. Their presence alone can cause intense physical fear and despair that can literally grind you down into the dust.

If you want to meet one, look at old angel names and remove the vowels. Back in the days of Enoch the Scribe, vowels didn't really exist in writing.

Here is an example of what they can look like in their homeland Tartarus.



Do you really want to meet one, face to face ?

If I could choose any one? Hands down it would be Lizard Man (the reptilian humanoid of the desert and in some cases the swamp), but sadly evidence almost always point to him being a hoax. Here is a short Lizard Man article:

Mothman, definitely. If only to work out where it fits in established taxonomy. Bigfoot is fairly obviously a higher primate, probably in the Hominidae. Mothman? Mothman's a winged, possibly bipedal, possibly headless being that seems drawn to disaster sites. One of those is going to be a lot more scientifically important than the other, and it's not the big hairy one.

I would accept nothing less than a Mothman in a Bigfoot suit.

2nd.

I'm not sure, I never thought of it that way to be honest.

I don't know everything about mothman, I find it a far more interesting subject than bigfoot, I think proving its existence might possibly teach us a whole bunch of stuff.

I didn't know mothman was some demonic entity that can turn me to dust, I've never read or heard that but I'm definitely interested in any sources of info you have on him. I never really thought of it as mothman being the bringer of the doom, more a forewarning of it.

But you could very well be right, an interesting perspective. But surely if science could once and for all prove the existence of the type of being to which you are referring, that too would be an amazing thing?

Any thoughts?

I remember reading about that, it's a fascinating story for sure. But like you, I took it with a grain of salt, most likely a hoax...I liked the story, though - I guess it's the not knowing for sure that make these kind of tales appealing.

I often wonder if we did catch say, a mothman, only to discover it's some hairy, flea ridden, diseased bag of uninteresting dirt or something...how boring and rather uninteresting it would be to discover it was just a huge, unknown type of bat or something.

No special powers or strange attributes...just a big, dirty bat.

This made me chuckle, doubly-so as I always think of that hilarious scene in Ace Ventura 2 whenever I think of rhinos.

But there's an odd looking animal. Imagine we didn't know rhinos existed, no human had ever seen one, then one day two rather excited kids ran up to you screming hysterically, describing this creature - armour plates, huge horns...now imagine the appearance it'd take on after making the rounds, the artists impressions - some hideous looking, almost demonic, armour plated, horned beast.

It's tangents of thought like this that lead me to think ...they catch mothman, and - DIRTY BIG BAT!

Still, the first human meeting the first rhino must have been quite a moment...and there's every possibility that said human was ground to dust.
