Faster than a speeding bullet,
More powerful than a locomotive,
Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound,
It's a bird!
It's a plane!
Superman, Man of Steel, Superman.
Wait…? Are those wings?
As we begin our story, let's look at Point Pleasant. A sleepy sleepy town of only four thousand people at the intersection of the Ohio and Kanawha Rivers, and the Mason County Seat in good ol' West Virginia.
Yes, West Virginia.
In West Virginia, theMothman is a supernatural creature reportedly seen in thePoint Pleasant area from November 15, 1966 to December 15, 1967. The first newspaper report was published in thePoint Pleasant Register, dated November 16, 1966, titled "Couples See Man-Sized Bird ... Creature ... Something"
Mothman is often seen JUST before Disaster strikes.
An Omen of Evil or a Warning of Judgment, the debate rages on.
What is known, is that these instances of Ten Feet Tall Mothmen with Red Eyes have been seen and reported PRIOR to several disasters across the Appalachians.
Most notably of which (Cue Richard Gere), was the foretelling of the collapse of the Silver Bridge.
Eyewitnesses have connected the Mothman Sightings as a warning to the collapse of the Silver Bridge across the Ohio River on December 15, 1967.
In fact, there's even a 12 foot tall, metallic statue of the Mothman in point Pleasant, WV commemorating both the legend and the Silver Bridge disaster.
Over 100 Sworn Witnesses claimed to have witnessed the Mothman in a small area.
Throughout History - Giant Winged Creatures that come with a prophecy have appeared. You can find these in many ancient paintings, texts, and religions. The Mothman, as we know it is a global phenomenon, one that appears before a disaster.
From Ancient Babylon to even just a month ago, people swear they have witnessed Mothman.
Loren Coleman has been researching Mothman for over thirty years, and connects the dots of flying humanoids across time and our globe. He cites the work of John Keel, who witnessed the collapse of the Silver Bridge firsthand, and who wrote the Mothman Prophecies as a coping mechanism to tell the world what he knew to be true.Do you believe that the Mothman is real?
