Women are fascinated by mythical creatures like vampires, werewolves and men who are good listeners.

On the other hand, i do believe in "monsters". My belief that they are more on a spiritual side, but i won't discount that they walk the earth as some believe.

Legends date back 4,000 years when it comes to vampires (Lamashtu). Lamastu is closely associated with Lilith, a prominent figure in some Jewish texts. Some believe that Lilith was Adam's first, but Lilith refused to take a subservient position to Adam, and too disobeyed God after He sent 3 angels to have a talk with her. She refused and so He cursed her to walk earth for eternity(?)

I don't know the whole myth, bits & pieces only.

thank you nice to know somebody else put two and two together in the same way


IMO it is quite sad that multiple people can have a thought process that says "We don't know what it is, therefore I think monsters exist."

what is wrong with "We don't know what it is" as a complete statement - why do we have to fill in the gap with a fantasy??

Stories of monsters, vampires, werewolves, etc., are fictional, designed to keep people away from the area where criminal activity is being conducted...

the people of old had the intellect of todays child so I don't understand why we would still listen to the past about anything not based in the present fact. that includes religion or their thoughts on why the earth is... 2000 year old intellect serves no purpose but to admire that we came from it, finding answers there is just wrong.

rubbish - they were every bit as intelligent as today's folk.

they did not have the KNOWLEDGE that we have - but you should not mistake lack of knowledge for lack of intelligence.

I would add "We don't know exactly what it is but it's far more likely to be a wild animal attack or a human psychopath than a mythical beast!"

I really, really don't understand why fantasists need to explain these things with otherwordly theories when the simplest of reasons is the most likely.

In what way is "monsters" a "valid" theory?

How does that make it "valid"? Do you have a definition of "valid" that you can compare it to?

While I love me some cryptid studies. To say that just because people centuries past believed in races of monsters so therefore that is proof, is a bit daft.

People in ages past did not have the scientific and medical knowledge we have today. Famous monsters of the past are being debunked with modern knowledge.

Zombies and vampires are looking to be either people accidently buried alive or the ignorance of how the body acts after death.

Werewolves are being attributed to people with hair growth anomalies or people with mental illness.

Sea serpents and other water monsters are turning out to be oarfish, sturgeons, and possibly colossal squid.

Chupacabra and other little pesky similar things are regular animals with mange.

With modern age comes the technology and insight to put many myths to rest.

most of these explanations are half baked and don't explain most of attributes found in the folklore

Human descriptions are not independent of each other - we are all the same species, and we all have similar imaginations, and our cultures all originated in the same place and we almost certainly have more recent connections in prehistory that are simply not known. Each "new" culture brings with it stories from whatever it "split off" from in the distant past

and not all monsters are described in similar ways at all except in the most general of terms - eg flying, or eating humans, or changelings, etc.
