Winged Things Around The World

In a new article that can be found at his Gralien Report website, good mate Micah Hanks delves into the weird realm of Mothman-style entities seen around the world and across the decades. He begins:

"It is often said in Fortean circles that the mysterious appearance of the Mothman, a winged cryptid monstrosity that appeared in the vicinity of Point Pleasant, West Virginia in the late 1960s, was prophetic in nature. Traditionally, researchers have felt that the creature’s presence represented some sort of omen, warning of terrible things to come; specifically, the collapse of the Silver Bridge on December 15, 1967. Though the Mothman certainly isn’t the only winged creature alleged to exist in the realm of the unexplained, it is by far the most famous. Nonetheless, its cousins, reportedly seen at various times and places elsewhere around the globe, are also sometimes seen to be harbingers of ill fortune."

And if that has caught your attention, it's time to click right here for the rest...

As I was telling you, I saw "Mothman" when I was a child back in Ohio (I was 8) and my parents and I were returning from my Great Aunt Thelma's home in Fairmont, WV to our home in Chillicothe, Ohio when we all saw this whatever it is. The word "Mothman" hadn't been coined and would not be for another 8 years but the descriptions match. I know we saw the same thing the people of Point Pleasant would be seeing. And I think it may well be a tulpa---certainly it isn't anything of normal evolution (and its eyes DID glow red---I don't care what Loren Coleman has to say about it). They didn't REFLECT red...they GLOWED. Which is why I have always suspected it was more paranormal than cryptid in nature.
