Creatures from beyond part VIII, Giants and Nephilims

goliath1a

The next myth relates to ancient giants. There is huge amount of data about giants and it’s very hard to tell which information is real and which is fiction, but here it goes. And this is topic which interest me the most so maybe there will be more postings about giants in the future. Here is the start:

The mythology and legends of many different cultures include monsters of human appearance but prodigious size and strength. “Giant” is the English word (coined 1297) commonly used for such beings, derived from one of the most famed examples: the gigantes (Greek “γίγαντες”) of Greek mythology.

In various Indo-European mythologies, gigantic peoples are featured as primeval creatures associated with chaos and the wild nature, and they are frequently in conflict with the gods, be they Olympian, Nartian, Hindu or Norse.

There are also accounts of giants in the Old Testament, most famously Goliath. Attributed to them are extraordinary strength and physical proportions.

Fairy tales such as Jack the Giant Killer have formed our modern perception of giants as stupid and violent monsters, sometimes said to eat humans, especially children (though this is actually a confusion with ogres, which are distinctly cannibalistic). The ogre in Jack and the Beanstalk is often described as a giant. However, in some more recent portrayals, like those of Roald Dahl, some giants are both intelligent and friendly, as in Gulliver’s Travels.

Biblical Old Testament

The Bible (Genesis 6:4-5) tells of giants called Nephilim before and after the Flood:

“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:4-5KJV)

According to the Bible (Genesis 7:23), the Nephilim were destroyed in the Flood; however, further giants are reported after the Flood, including:

The Bible also tells of Gog and Magog, who later entered into European folklore, and of the famous battle between David and the Philistine giant Goliath. The 1st century historian Josephus, and the 1st-2nd century BC Dead Sea Scrolls give Goliath’s height as “four cubits and a span,” approximately 2.00 m or about six feet seven inches.The King James translation of the Bible reports the giant Goliath as “six cubits and a span” in height—about nine feet nine inches tall, (over 2.75 m) (1Samuel 17:4 KJV), but the Septuagint, a Greek Bible, gives Goliath’s height as “four cubits and a span” (~2.00 m).

Jewish Historian Flavius Josephus also described the Amorites as giants in his Antiquities of the Jews, circa 93 AD, indicating that fossil evidence still remained at that time.:”For which reason they removed their camp to Hebron; and when they had taken it, they slew all the inhabitants. There were till then left the race of giants, who had bodies so large, and countenances so entirely different from other men, that they were surprising to the sight, and terrible to the hearing. The bones of these men are still shown to this very day, unlike to any credible relations of other men.”

Old Testament Pseudepigrapha

The Book of Enoch describes “giants” as the offspring of Fallen angels and mortal women in 7:2.

Hinduism

In Hinduism, the giants are called Daityas. The Daityas (दैत्‍य) were the children of Diti and the sage Kashyapa who fought against the gods or Devas because they were jealous of their Deva half-brothers. Since Daityas were a power-seeking race, they sometimes allied with other races having similar ideology namely Danavas and Asuras. Daityas along with Danavas and Asuras are sometimes called Rakshasas, the generic term for a demon in Hindu mythology. Some known Daityas include Hiranyakashipu and Hiranyaksha. The main antagonist of the Hindu epic Ramayana, Ravana, was a Brahmin from his father’s side and a Daitya from his mother’s side. His younger brother Kumbhakarna was said to be as tall as a mountain and was quite good natured.

Native American mythology

According to Paiute oral history, the Si-Te-Cah or Sai’i are a legendary tribe of red-haired cannibalistic giants, the remains of which were allegedly found in 1911 by guano miners in Nevada’s Lovelock Cave. Furthermore, the Paiute creation story tells of “beautiful giants” who once lived between the Sierra Nevada and the Rocky Mountains. After giving birth to a disfigured child, the giants treated the child so poorly that the Great Spirit responded by making the land hot and desolate and allowing enemies to conquer the giants. Only two giants survived: Paiute and his wife, both of whose skin became brown from eternally living in the hot desert.

Adrienne Mayor writes about the Si-Te-Cah in her book, Legends of the First Americans.She suggests that the ‘giant’ interpretation of the skeletons from Lovelock Cave and other dry caves in Nevada was started by entrepreneurs setting up tourist displays and that the skeletons themselves were of normal size. However, about a hundred miles north of Lovelock there are plentiful fossils of mammoths and cave bears, and their large limb bones could easily be thought to be those of giants by an untrained observer. She also discusses the reddish hair, pointing out that hair pigment is not stable after death and that various factors such as temperature, soil, etc. can turn ancient very dark hair rusty red or orange.

Greek mythology

In Greek mythology the gigantes (γίγαντες) were (according to the poet Hesiod) the children of Uranus (mythology) (Ουρανός) and Gaea (Γαία) (spirits of the sky and the earth). They were involved in a conflict with the Olympian gods called the Gigantomachy (Γιγαντομαχία), which was eventually settled when the hero Heracles decided to help the Olympians. The Greeks believed some of them, like Enceladus, to lay buried from that time under the earth and that their tormented quivers resulted in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Herodotus in Book 1, Chapter 68, describes how the Spartans uncovered in Tegea the body of Orestes which was seven cubits long—around 10 feet. In his book The Comparison of Romulus with TheseusPlutarch describes how the Athenians uncovered the body of Theseus, which was of more than ordinary size. The kneecaps of Ajax were exactly the size of a discus for the boy’s pentathlon, wrote Pausanias. A boy’s discus was about twelve centimeters in diameter, while a normal adult patella is around five centimeters, suggesting Ajax may have been around 14 feet (~4.3 meters) tall.

The Cyclopes, usually children of Gods (Olympians) and nature spirits (nereids, naiads and dryads), are also compared to giants due to their huge size (Polyphemus, son of Poseidon and Thoosa, and nemesis of Odysseus and Jason, comes to mind).

Roman mythology

Several Jupiter-Giant-Columns have been found in Germania Superior. These were crowned with a statue of Jupiter, typically on horseback, defeating or trampling down a Giant, often depicted as a snake. They are restricted to the area of south-western Germany, western Switzerland, French Jura and Alsace.

Norse mythology

In Norse mythology, the Jotun (jötnar in Old Norse, a cognate with ettin) are often opposed to the gods. While often translated as “giants”, most are described as being roughly human sized. Some are portrayed as huge, such as frost giants (hrímþursar), fire giants (eldjötnar), and mountain giants (bergrisar).

The giants are the origin of most of various monsters in Norse mythology (e.g. the Fenrisulfr), and in the eventual battle of Ragnarök the giants will storm Asgard and defeat them in war. Even so, the gods themselves were related to the giants by many marriages, and there are giants such as Ægir, Loki, Mímir and Skaði, who bear little difference in status to them.

Norse mythology also holds that the entire world of men was once created from the flesh of Ymir, a giant of cosmic proportions, which name is considered by some to share a root with the name Yama of Indo-Iranian mythology.

An old Icelandic legend says that two night-prowling giants, a man and a woman, were traversing the fjord near Drangey Island with their cow when they were surprised by the bright rays of daybreak. As a result of exposure to daylight, all three were turned into stone. Drangey represents the cow and Kerling (supposedly the female giant, the name means “Old Hag”) is to the south of it. Karl (the male giant) was to the north of the island, but he disappeared long ago.

A bergrisi appears as a supporter on the coat of arms of Iceland.

Other European mythology

In folklore from all over Europe, giants were believed to have built the remains of previous civilizations. Saxo Grammaticus, for example, argues that giants had to exist, because nothing else would explain the large walls, stone monuments, and statues that we now know were the remains of Roman construction. Similarly, the Old English poemSeafarer speaks of the high stone walls that were the work of giants. Even natural geologic features such as the massive basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway on the coast of Northern Ireland were attributed to construction by giants. Giants provided the least complicated explanation for such artifacts.

Medieval romances such as Amadis de Gaula feature giants as antagonists, or, rarely, as allies. This is parodied famously in Cervantes’ Don Quixote, when the title character attacks a windmill, believing it to be a giant. This is the source of the phrase tilting at windmills.

Tales of combat with giants were a common feature in the folklore of Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Celtic giants also figure in Breton and Arthurianromances perhaps as a reflection of the Nordic and Slavic mythology that arrived on the boats, and from this source they spread into the heroic tales of Torquato Tasso, Ludovico Ariosto, and their follower Edmund Spenser. In the small Scottish village of Kinloch Rannoch, a local myth to this effect concerns a local hill that apparently resembles the head, shoulders, and torso of a man, and has therefore been termed ‘the sleeping giant’. Apparently the giant will awaken only if a specific musical instrument is played near the hill. Other giants, perhaps descended from earlier Germanic mythology, feature as frequent opponents of Dietrich von Bern in medieval German tales – in later portrayals Dietrich himself and his fellow heroes also became giants.

Many giants in English folklore were noted for their stupidity.A giant who had quarreled with the Mayor of Shrewsbury went to bury the city with dirt; however, he met a shoemaker, carrying shoes to repair, and the shoemaker convinced the giant that he had worn out all the shoes coming from Shrewsbury, and so it was too far to travel.

Other English stories told of how giants threw stones at each other. This was used to explain many great stones on the landscape.

Giants figure in a great many fairy tales and folklore stories, such as Jack the Giant Killer, The Giant Who Had No Heart in His Body, Nix Nought Nothing, Robin Hood and the Prince of Aragon, Young Ronald, and Paul Bunyan. Ogres and trolls are humanoid creatures, sometimes of gigantic stature, that occur in various sorts of European folklore. An example of another, Slavic, folklore giant is Rübezahl, a kind giant from Wendish folklore who lived in the Giant Mountains (nowadays on the CzechPolish border).

In Kalevala, Antero Vipunen is a giant shaman that possesses mighty spells dating to the creation. Epic hero Väinämöinen sets out to learn these spells from him, but Vipunen is buried underground, and when Väinämöinen digs him out, he is accidentally swallowed by Vipunen. Väinämöinen then forces Vipunen to submit and sing the spells out by hammering his insides. An analysis by Martti Haavio is that Vipunen is not physically large, but his familiar animal (astral form) is a whale. The depiction is not found in the majority of Finnish original stories, and most probably originates from the book’s compiler Elias Lönnrot.

Possible Fossil Evidence

Through the centuries, certain archaeologists have searched for fossil evidence of a race of giants. Alleged evidence includes:

  • The Giant of Castelnau: Estimated at 11 feet, 6 inches tall. Discovered by the anthropologist Georges Vacher de Lapouge at the Bronze Age cemetery of Castelnau-le-Lez, France in the winter of 1890.
  • 1894 press accounts mentioned a discovery of bones of human giants unearthed at a prehistoric cemetery at Montpellier, France. Skulls “28, 31, and 32 inches in circumference” were reported alongside other bones of gigantic proportions which indicated they belonged to a race of men “between 10 and 15 feet in height.” The bones were reportedly sent to the Paris Academy for further study.
  • The remains of the Si-Te-Cah or Sai’i, a legendary tribe of red-haired cannibalistic giants, which were allegedly found in 1911 by guano miners in Nevada’s Lovelock Cave.However, the size and nature of the fossil remains has been disputed by Adrienne Mayor in the book, Fossil Legends of the First Americans.

There you have some history and mythology about giants and then I gather some evidence of existence of the giants. First a man who has found a giant skull called Ed Conrad:

“There was a time when Conrad regarded the integrity of the scientific establishment as beyond reproach. But after seven years of dealing with paleontologists and archaeologists, he said he has found them to be a devious and untrustworthy bunch whose actions in relation to him have been downright dishonest and deceitful.”

“Conrad believes his discovery has frightened members of the archeological/ paleontological establishment out of their wits. They dread the truth, he says, because they know their cozy little clique will be gone with the eons. No longer will they be able to sup at the trough of Darwinism, enjoying soft jobs with huge salaries.”

skullcompare

This is the boulder with the human skull protruding that Ed Conrad discovered in 1982, about a year after finding the specimen resembling the anthropoid skull. It was found in the same general area in precisely this position, with the jawbone facing downward. The Smithsonian had admitted that the protrusion does indeed resemble a human skull.

This giant skull, embedded in solid rock, presents several problems for materialists.

“And it may seem harmless to you now that its been exposed. But, did you know that over 500 people obtained their PhD’s by writing their thesis on “the Piltdown Man”? I dare say, no one took back those PhDs after it was exposed, and those people taught hundreds of thousands of people.” Wyatt, Newletter Five

In 1982 Dr. Lyall Watson stated: “The fossils that decorate our family tree are so scarce that there are still more scientists than specimens. The remarkable fact is that all of the physical evidence we have for human evolution can still be placed, with room to spare, inside a single coffin!”

Likewise, a 1994 article in Time Magazine admitted that: “Yet despite more than a century of digging, the fossil record remains maddeningly sparse. With so few clues, even a single bone that doesn’t fit into the picture can upset everything. Virtually every major discovery has put deep cracks in the conventional wisdom and forced scientists to concoct new theories, amid furious debate.”

Prior to more recent developments of techniques for dating by means of radioactive materials, there were fundamentally only two methods of estimating the age of a fossil. The first was the geological level at which the specimen was found.

The second, applying more particularly to human fossils, was the general appearance: whether apish and “primitive,” or essentially like modern man. These two criteria are still largely applied, since the majority of the more ancient remains of early man are completely fossilized and C-14 methods of dating cannot be used.

But it has long been recognized that if the fossil remains of early man are arranged according to their degree of primitiveness, the order will be found to contradict the series arranged on the basis of antiquity as established by the levels at which they are found.”

GIGANTOPITHECUS” & “MEGANTHROPUS”

There is no controversy about these facts; there was a race or group of people found in Australia called “meganthropus” by anthropologists. These people were of very large size–estimated between 7 to 12 feet tall, depending on what source you read.

These people were found with mega tool artifacts, so their humaness is difficult to question. Four jaw fragments and thousands of teeth have been found in China of “gigantopithecus blacki”–named after the discover. Based on the size of the teeth and deep jaws, its size has been estimated at around 10 feet and as tall as 12 feet, 1200 pounds. (Photo:Giant human femur reportedly found in Turkey)

The “problem” is that human fossils are the rarest of all, and generally, only the hardest bones, jaws, teeth and skulls survive. As with most “early man” artistic recreations, a great deal of the individual is surmised.

The question is, is gigantopithecus a man or an ape? I personally have no opinion, but it is clear that very large men did live once. Scientists are of course afraid of being ridiculed and rather than estimate the size of the individuals possessing larger skulls and teeth than “us”, they prefer to use the term robust.

Anthropologists spend quite a bit of time trying to decide what is an ape, what is a man, who they believe descended from who and the like. Now, most consider gigantopithecus an ape,(its more convenient to the theory of evol) but the co-discover at least, and many others still see no difference between the teeth and jaws of Giganto than other so-called ancestors.

As we said, everyone believes that meganthropus with his mega-tools was a “man”. Tools have been found in the same area as giganto as well, but the tendency has been to associate them with other “types’ found at the same location.

There were giants on the earth in those days…

Then there is a cave where they have found bones of giants and burned human bones called “The Breitenwinner Cave”:

cave2

What it is:
A Bavarian catacomb located in a cave on the German/Swiss border containing thousands of normal, and not so normal, giant, human bones.  The normal size bones are found burned and brittle in a massive mound of bones, wood, and ash. The giant bones are buried, or arranged in a ritualistic manner.

What it might be:
Is this a massive burial cave for an ancient race of giants? Is it a possible crematorium for the missing prisoners of Stalag 383, a nearby Nazi prisoner of war camp, with a nasty reputation?

OR Is it both?

Latest news related to Giants was this newsarticle about mummified giant finger:

giant_finger

A giant finger was discovered in Egypt in 1988. The finger was almost 16 inches long and is estimated to have been from the hand of a being that would have stood around 16 feet in height.  Swiss archaeologist Gregor Spörri released the photo to the newspaper Bild last year. The picture were taken in 1988 during his private trip to Egypt.

The finger was later stolen. Was it real or a hoax?  There are reputed to be giant human mummies in Egypt that have been hidden by archaeologists. The stolen giant human finger allegedly came from a giant mummy found in graves around Giza pyramids.

What you are looking at is a gigantic, nearly 16 inches long, mummified humanoid finger and the creatures height would hve been over 16.4 feet!  In 1988, Spörri on the last day of a private trip to Egypt, he met an old man from a grave robber dynasty. The meeting was took place in a farm-house in Bir Hooker, 100 kilometers northeast of Cairo.

After paying, $300 Spörri had a look at the grave robber’s treasure which was the skin and bone  wrapped in old rags

Spörri told BILD.de: “It was an oblong package, smelled musty. I was totally flabbergasted when I saw the dark brown giant finger.”

I was allowed to take it in hand and also to take pictures; a bill was put next to it to get a size comparison. “The bent finger was split open and covered with dried mold.” It was surprisingly light maybe a few hundred grams My heart was up to his neck. That was incredible. In size to a matching body should have been about 15 feet tall”

Were there giants in Egypt? The Roman historian Flavius ​​Josephus reported  in 79 AD   in his history of the Jewish War that “There were giants. Much larger and different than normal people. Horrible to look at. Who has not seen with his own eyes, he can ot believe that they have been so enormous. ”  Josephus also says that in the vicinity of Hebron during  the time of Moses that “There were till then left the race of giants, who had bodies so large, and countenances so entirely different from other men, that they were surprising to the sight, and terrible to the hearing. The bones of these men are still shown to this very day, unlike to any credible relations of other men”

Some think the finger may have belonged to a Gigantopithecus blacki.

Gigantopithecus is an extinct genus of ape that existed from roughly nine million years to as recently as one hundred thousand years ago, in what is now China, India, and Vietnam, placing Gigantopithecus in the same time frame and geographical location as several hominin species.The fossil record suggests that individuals of the species Gigantopithecus blacki were the largest apes that ever lived, standing up to 3 m (9.8 ft), and weighing up to 540 kg (1,200 lb)

Gigantopithecus_v_human

The first Gigantopithecus remains described by an anthropologist were found in 1935 by Ralph von Koenigswald in an apothecary shop. Fossilized teeth and bones are often ground into powder and used in some branches of traditional Chinese medicine.[5] Von Koenigswald named the theorized species Gigantopithecus.[6]

Since then, relatively few fossils of Gigantopithecus have been recovered. Aside from the molars recovered in Chinese traditional medicine shops, Liucheng Cave in Liuzhou, China, has produced numerous Gigantopithecus blacki teeth, as well as several jawbones.[3] Other sites yielding significant finds were in Vietnam and India.[2][4] These finds suggest the range of Gigantopithecus was southeast Asia.

In 1955, 47 G. blacki teeth were found among a shipment of ‘dragon bones’ (aka, “oracle bones”) in China. Tracing these teeth to their source resulted in recovery of more teeth and a rather complete large mandible. By 1958, three mandibles and more than 1,300 teeth had been recovered. Gigantopithecus remains have come from sites in Hubei, Guangxi, and Sichuan, from warehouses for Chinese medicinal products, as well as from cave deposits. Not all Chinese remains have been dated to the same time period, and the fossils in Hubei appear to be of a later date than elsewhere in China. The Hubei teeth are also larger.

Characteristics

Gigantopithecus’s method of locomotion is uncertain, as no pelvic or leg bones have been found. The dominant view is that it walked on all fours like modern gorillas and chimpanzees; however, a minority opinion favors bipedal locomotion, most notably championed by the late Grover Krantz, but this assumption is based only on the very few jawbone remains found, all of which are U-shaped and widen towards the rear. This allows room for the windpipe to be within the jaw, allowing the skull to sit squarely upon a fully erect spine as in modern humans, rather than roughly in front of it, as in the other great apes.

The majority view is that the weight of such a large, heavy animal would put enormous stress on the creature’s legs, ankles, and feet if it walked bipedally; while if it walked on all four limbs, like gorillas, its weight would be better distributed over each limb.

Diet

The jaws of Gigantopithecus are deep and very thick. The molars are low-crowned and flat, and exhibit heavy enamel suitable for tough grinding.[8] The premolars are broad and flat and configured similarly to the molars. The canine teeth are neither pointed nor sharp, while the incisors are small, peglike, and closely aligned. The features of teeth and jaws suggested that the animal was adapted to chewing tough, fibrous food by cutting, crushing, and grinding it. Gigantopithecus teeth also have a large number of cavities, similar to those found in giant pandas, whose diet, which includes a large amount of bamboo, may be similar to that of Gigantopithecus.

In addition to bamboo, Gigantopithecus consumed other vegetable foods, as suggested by the analysis of the phytoliths adhering to its teeth. An examination of the microscopic scratches and gritty plant remains embedded in Gigantopithecus teeth suggests they ingested seeds and fruit, as well as bamboo

Gigantopithecus blacki

Gigantopithecus blacki is only known through fossil teeth and mandibles found in cave sites in Southeast Asia. As the name suggests, these are appreciably larger than those of living gorillas, but the exact size and structure of the rest of the body can only be estimated in the absence of additional findings. Dating methods have shown that G. blacki existed for about a million years, going extinct about 100,000 years ago after having been contemporary with (anatomically) modern humans (Homo sapiens) for tens of thousands of years, and co-existing with H. erectus before the appearance of H. sapiens.

Morphology

Based on the fossil evidence, adult male Gigantopithecus blacki are believed to have stood about 3 m (9.8 ft) tall and weighed as much as 540 kg (1,200 lb), making the species two to three times heavier than modern gorillas and nearly five times heavier than the orangutan, its closest living relative. Large males may have had an armspan of over 12 ft (3.6 m). The species was highly sexually dimorphic, with adult females roughly half the weight of males.[4] Due to wide interspecies differences in the relationship between tooth and body size, some argue[citation needed] that it is more likely that Gigantopithecus was much smaller, at roughly 1.8 m (5.9 ft).

The species lived in Asia and probably inhabited bamboo forests, since its fossils are often found alongside those of extinct ancestors of the panda. Most evidence points to Gigantopithecus being a plant-eater.

Its appearance is not known, because of the fragmentary nature of its fossil remains. It possibly resembled modern gorillas, because of its supposedly similar lifestyle. Some scientists, however, think it probably looked more like its closest modern relative, the orangutan. Being so large, Gigantopithecus possibly had few or no enemies when fully grown. However, younger, weak, or injured individuals may have been vulnerable to predation by tigers, pythons, crocodiles, Dinofelis, hyenas, bears, and Homo erectus.

So much information and so little time. It’s up to you if you want to find more information about Giants. The Net is full of it and the hardest thing is to find the information which could be reliable and backed up with some facts. This information is just brought to wake up your interest towards these Giant beings, which I think once walked on Earth. Or what do you think about for example Russian boxer called Nikolai Valuev, is he a normal person? I think he is a  descendant of a Giant:

Nikolai Sergeyevich Valuev (Russian: Николай Сергеевич Валуев Russian pronunciation: [nʲɪkɐˈlaj sʲɪrˈɡʲejɪvʲɪtɕ vɐˈlʊjɪf]; born 21 August 1973) is a retired Russian professional boxer and former two-time WBAheavyweight champion. In his last fight (on 7 November 2009), he lost the title to David Haye as a result of a 12-round majority decision. Three days after the fight, Valuev announced his retirement.

Creatures from beyond part VII, The Loch Ness Monster

nessie

Source

This is so legendary tale, that I’m going to describe just a little of Nessie and then try to focus on the latest information about it. Here is the description of Nessie:

The Loch Ness Monster is a cryptid, reputedly a large unknown animal that is said to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is similar to other supposed lake monsters in Scotland and elsewhere, though its description varies from one account to the next. Popular interest and belief in the animal’s existence has varied since it was first brought to the world’s attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with minimal and much-disputed photographic material and sonar readings.

The most common speculation among believers is that the creature represents a line of long-surviving plesiosaurs.The scientific community regards the Loch Ness Monster as a modern-day myth, and explains sightings as including misidentifications of more mundane objects, outright hoaxes, and wishful thinking.Despite this, it remains one of the most famous examples of cryptozoology. The legendary monster has been affectionately referred to by the nickname Nessie (Scottish Gaelic: Niseag)since the 1950s.

Origins

The term “monster” was reportedly applied for the first time to the creature on 2 May 1933 by Alex Campbell, the water bailiff for Loch Ness and a part-time journalist, in a report in the Inverness Courier.On 4 August 1933, the Courier published as a full news item the assertion of a London man, George Spicer, that a few weeks earlier while motoring around the Loch, he and his wife had seen “the nearest approach to a dragon or pre-historic animal that I have ever seen in my life”, trundling across the road toward the Loch carrying “an animal” in its mouth.Other letters began appearing in the Courier, often anonymously, with claims of land or water sightings, either on the writer’s part or on the parts of family, acquaintances or stories they remembered being told.These stories soon reached the national (and later the international) press, which described a “monster fish”, “sea serpent”, or “dragon”,eventually settling on “Loch Ness Monster”.On 6 December 1933 the first purported photograph of the monster, taken by Hugh Gray, was published in the Daily Express,and shortly after the creature received official notice when the Secretary of State for Scotland ordered the police to prevent any attacks on it.In 1934, interest was further sparked by what is known as The Surgeon’s Photograph. In the same year R. T. Gould published a book,the first of many that describe the author’s personal investigation and collected record of additional reports pre-dating 1933. Other authors have claimed that sightings of the monster go as far back as the 6th century (see below).

History

Saint Columba (6th century)

The earliest report of a monster associated with the vicinity of Loch Ness appears in the Life of St. Columba by Adomnán, written in the 7th century.According to Adomnán, writing about a century after the events he described, the Irish monk Saint Columba was staying in the land of the Picts with his companions when he came across the locals burying a man by the River Ness. They explained that the man had been swimming the river when he was attacked by a “water beast” that had mauled him and dragged him under. They tried to rescue him in a boat, but were able only to drag up his corpse. Hearing this, Columba stunned the Picts by sending his follower Luigne moccu Min to swim across the river. The beast came after him, but Columba made the sign of the cross and commanded: “Go no further. Do not touch the man. Go back at once.”The beast immediately halted as if it had been “pulled back with ropes” and fled in terror, and both Columba’s men and the pagan Picts praised God for the miracle.

The oldest manuscript relating to this story was put online in 2012.Believers in the Loch Ness Monster often point to this story, which takes place on the River Ness rather than the loch itself, as evidence for the creature’s existence as early as the 6th century.However, sceptics question the narrative’s reliability, noting that water-beast stories were extremely common in medieval saints’ Lives; as such, Adomnán’s tale is likely a recycling of a common motif attached to a local landmark.According to the sceptics, Adomnán’s story may be independent of the modern Loch Ness Monster legend entirely, only becoming attached to it in retrospect by believers seeking to bolster their claims.In an article for Cryptozoology, A. C. Thomas notes that even if there were some truth to the story, it could be explained rationally as an encounter with a walrus or similar creature that had swum up the river.R. Binns acknowledges that this account is the most serious of various alleged early sightings of the monster, but argues that all other claims of monster sightings prior to 1933 are highly dubious and do not prove that there was a tradition of the monster before this date.

Spicers (1933)

Modern interest in the monster was sparked by a sighting on 22 July 1933, when George Spicer and his wife saw ‘a most extraordinary form of animal’ cross the road in front of their car.They described the creature as having a large body (about 4 feet (1.2 m) high and 25 feet (7.6 m) long), and long, narrow neck, slightly thicker than an elephant’s trunk and as long as the 10–12-foot (3–4 m) width of the road; the neck had undulations in it. They saw no limbs, possibly because of a dip in the road obscuring the animal’s lower portion.It lurched across the road towards the loch 20 yards (20 m) away, leaving only a trail of broken undergrowth in its wake.

In August 1933 a motorcyclist named Arthur Grant claimed to have nearly hit the creature while approaching Abriachan on the north-eastern shore, at about 1 a.m. on a moonlit night. Grant claimed that he saw a small head attached to a long neck, and that the creature saw him and crossed the road back into the loch. A veterinary student, he described it as a hybrid between a seal and a plesiosaur. Grant said he dismounted and followed it to the loch, but only saw ripples.Some believe this story was intended as a humorous explanation of a motorcycle accident.

Sightings of the monster increased following the building of a road along the loch in early 1933, bringing both workmen and tourists to the formerly isolated area Sporadic land sightings continued until 1963, when film of the creature was shot in the loch from a distance of 4 kilometres. Because of the distance at which it was shot, it has been described as poor quality.

Chief Constable William Fraser (1938)

In 1938, Inverness Shire Chief Constable William Fraser wrote a letter stating that it was beyond doubt the monster existed. His letter expressed concern regarding a hunting party that had arrived armed with a specially-made harpoon gun and were determined to catch the monster “dead or alive”. He believed his power to protect the monster from the hunters was “very doubtful”. The letter was released by the National Archives of Scotland on 27 April 2010.

C. B. Farrel (1943)

In May 1943, C. B. Farrel of the Royal Observer Corps was supposedly distracted from his duties by a Nessie sighting. He claimed to have been about 250 yards (230 m) away from a large-eyed, ‘finned’ creature, which had a 20-to-30-foot (6 to 9 m) long body, and a neck that protruded about 4–5 feet (1.2–1.5 m) out of the water.

Sonar contact (1954)

In December 1954 a strange sonar contact was made by the fishing boat Rival III. The vessel’s crew observed sonar readings of a large object keeping pace with the boat at a depth of 480 feet (146 m). It was detected travelling for half a mile (800 m) in this manner, before contact was lost, but then found again later.Many sonar attempts had been made previously, but most were either inconclusive or negative.

Latest Sightings

Sonar image (2011)

On 24 August 2011, Marcus Atkinson, a local Loch Ness boat skipper, photographed a sonar image of a long 5 ft wide unidentified object which was apparently following his boat for two minutes at a depth of 75 ft. Atkinson ruled out the possibility of any small fish or seal being what he believed to be the Loch Ness Monster. In April 2012, a scientist from the National Oceanography Centre said that this image is a bloom of algae and zooplankton.However, Roland Watson, a cryptozoologist and Loch Ness Monster researcher, has criticized this analysis, stating that the object in the image is very unlikely to be a bloom of algae and zooplankton, since algae needs sunlight to grow, and the waters of Loch Ness are very dark, and nearly devoid of sunlight, 75 feet down.

George Edwards’ photograph (2011)

On 3 August 2012, skipper George Edwards published a photograph he claims to be “The most convincing Nessie photograph ever”, which he claimed to have taken on 2 November 2011. Edwards’ photograph consists in a hump out of the water which, according to him, remained so for five to ten minutes. The Daily Mail reports that Edward had the photograph independently verified by specialists such as a Loch Ness Monster sighting devotee and a group of US military monster experts. Edwards spends 60 hours per week on the loch aboard his boat, Nessie Hunter IV, in which he takes tourists for a ride on the lake, and claims to have searched for the Loch Ness monster for 26 years.Said Edwards, “In my opinion, it probably looks kind of like a manatee, but not a mammal. When people see three humps, they’re probably just seeing three separate monsters.”

>> The Huffington Post article about George Edward’s photograph

However, other researchers of the Loch Ness phenomena have questioned the authenticity of the photograph. A subsequent investigation by Loch Ness researcher, Steve Feltham, suggests that the object in the water is in fact a fibreglass hump used previously in a National Geographic documentary which Edwards had participated in. Researcher Dick Raynor has also questioned Edward’s claims about finding a deeper bottom to Loch Ness, which he refers to as “Edwards Deep”. He also found inconsistencies between Edwards’ claims of the location and conditions of the photograph and the actual location and weather conditions of that day. Additionally, Raynor also stated that Edwards had previously told him he had faked a photograph in 1986, which he had promoted as genuine in the National Geographic documentary.

Next video is from series “Stuff They don’t want You To Know”:

 

Here’s the Cryptozoologist Fredrick William Holiday who dedicated his life to investigate The Nessie:

Fredrick William Holiday, also known as “Ted Holiday” (1920–1979) was a British journalist, angler, cryptozoologist, and wildlife specialist.

Motivated by the early 1930s media reports, Holiday would dedicate the rest of his life to investigating the Loch Ness monster. In the 1960s, Holiday became a member of the Loch Ness Investigation Bureau. After several hundred hours of watching the Loch, Holiday claims that he reported four unidentified sightings. In his 1968 book, The Great Orm of Loch Ness, Holiday postulated that the creature in the Loch was an invertebrate creature similar in form to the extinct Tullimonstrum gregarium, but vastly larger.

Holiday also claimed that he noticed several unusual coincidences, including camera malfunction during certain Nessie sightings. For example, in August 1968, even though there were several witnesses along the shore, “Nessie” chose to appear in one of the very few places that were obscured from the various cameras. Holiday reported, “The observers were watchful and keen but they had seen nothing. The phenomenon had concealed itself so there was nothing for them to see.”

By 1972, Holiday modified his initial hypothesis that the Loch Ness monster was a literal physical animal. In his second book, The Dragon and the Disc, Holiday postulates that there are certain commonalities between paranormal phenomena and certain reported sightings on the Loch. Holiday also believed that there is a relationship between ancient dragon legends and contemporary UFO phenomena. Though he maintained in the book that he still believed that the monster was an invertebrate animal, there was a paranormal aspect to it reminiscent of ancient Water Horse legends which he could not fully explain.

His final work, The Goblin Universe, was published posthumously and includes an introduction by Colin Wilson.

So that’s Nessie… difficult subject to investigate because of hoaxed photographs, videos, computer graphics etc. That’s why I didn’t post them here. You can check them up and make your own conclusions. I think that major part of  The Nessie legend is based on tourism and making money. If you want my wildest guess about it… it could be a hologram to fright people, maybe there is a military base somewhere they want to protect… gotcha 😆  Stay tuned for more CREATURES FROM BEYOND!

Creatures from beyond part VI, The Jersey Devil

Jersey_devil

Next creature is called The Jersey Devil. This hideous monster has several sightings and here is the description:

The Jersey Devil is a legendary creature or cryptid said to inhabit the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey, United States. The creature is often described as a flying biped with hooves, but there are many different variations. The most common description is that of a kangaroo-like creature with the head of a goat, leathery bat-like wings, horns, small arms with clawed hands, cloven hooves and a forked tail. It has been reported to move quickly and often is described as emitting a “blood-curdling scream.”

The Jersey Devil has worked its way into the pop culture of the area, even lending its name to New Jersey’s team in the National Hockey League, and appeared on an early episode of The X-Files.

Origin of the legend

There are many possible origins of the Jersey Devil legend. The earliest legends date back to Native American folklore. The Lenni Lenape tribes called the area around Pine Barrens “Popuessing”, meaning “place of the dragon”.Swedish explorers later named it “Drake Kill”, “drake” being a Swedish word for dragon, and “kil” meaning channel or arm of the sea (river, stream, etc.)

The most accepted origin of the story, as far as New Jerseyans are concerned, started with Mother Leeds and is as follows:

“It was said that Mother Leeds had 12 children and, after finding she was pregnant for the 13th time, stated that this one would be the Devil. In 1735, Mother Leeds was in labor on a stormy night. Gathered around her were her friends. Mother Leeds was supposedly a witch and the child’s father was the Devil himself. The child was born normal, but then changed form. It changed from a normal baby to a creature with hooves, a goat’s head, bat wings and a forked tail. It growled and screamed, then killed the midwife before flying up the chimney. It circled the villages and headed toward the pines. In 1740 a clergy exorcised the demon for 100 years and it wasn’t seen again until 1890.”

“Mother Leeds” has been identified by some as Deborah Leeds.This identification may have gained credence from the fact that Deborah Leeds’ husband, Japhet Leeds, named twelve children in the will he wrote in 1736,which is compatible with the legend of the Jersey Devil being the thirteenth child born by Mother Leeds. Deborah and Japhet Leeds also lived in the Leeds Point section of what is now Atlantic County, New Jersey,which is the area commonly said to be the location of the Jersey Devil story.

Reported encounters

There have been many sightings and occurrences allegedly involving the Jersey Devil.

According to legend, while visiting the Hanover Mill Works to inspect his cannonballs being forged, Commodore Stephen Decatur sighted a flying creature flapping its wings and fired a cannonball directly upon it to no effect.

Joseph Bonaparte, eldest brother of Emperor Napoleon, is also said to have witnessed the Jersey Devil while hunting on his Bordentown estate around hi 1820.[8] In 1840, the devil was blamed for several livestock killings. Similar attacks were reported in 1841, accompanied by tracks and screams.

Claims of a corpse matching the Leeds Devil’s description arose in Greenwich in December 1925. A local farmer shot an unidentified animal as it attempted to steal his chickens. Afterward, he claimed that none of 100 people he showed it to could identify it.On July 27, 1937 an unknown animal “with red eyes” seen by residents of Downingtown, Pennsylvania was compared to the Jersey Devil by a reporter for the Pennsylvania Bulletin.In 1951, a group of Gibbstown, New Jersey boys claimed to have seen a ‘monster’ matching the Devil’s description.and claims of a corpse matching the Jersey Devil’s description arose in 1957. In 1960, tracks and noises heard near Mays Landing were claimed to be from the Jersey Devil.During the same year the merchants around Camden offered a $10,000 reward for the capture of the Jersey Devil, even offering to build a private zoo to house the creature if captured.

Sightings of 1909

During the week of January 16 through 23, 1909, newspapers of the time published hundreds of claimed encounters with the Jersey Devil from all over the state. Among alleged encounters publicized that week were claims the creature “attacked” a trolley car in Haddon Heights and a social club in Camden.Police in Camden and Bristol, Pennsylvania supposedly fired on the creature to no effect.Other reports initially concerned unidentified footprints in the snow, but soon sightings of creatures resembling the Jersey Devil were being reported throughout South Jersey and as far away as Delaware.The widespread newspaper coverage led to a panic throughout the Delaware Valley prompting a number of schools to close and workers to stay home. During this period, it is rumored that the Philadelphia Zoo posted a $10,000 reward for the creature’s capture. The offer prompted a variety of hoaxes, including a kangaroo with artificial wings.

Explanations

Skeptics believe the Jersey Devil to be nothing more than a creative manifestation of the English settlers, Bogeyman stories created and told by bored Pine Barren residents as a form of children’s entertainment, and rumors arising from negative perceptions of the local population (“pineys“). According to Brian Dunning of Skeptoid, folk tales of the Jersey Devil prior to 1909 calling it the “Leeds Devil” may have been created to discredit local politician Daniel Leeds who served as deputy to the colonial governor of New York and New Jersey in the 1700s.Folklorist Jan Harold Brunvand wrote that the spread of contemporary pop culture has overtaken traditional Jersey Devil legends.Jeff Brunner of the Humane Society of New Jersey thinks the Sandhill Crane is the basis of the Jersey Devil stories, adding, “There are no photographs, no bones, no hard evidence whatsoever, and worst of all, no explanation of its origins that doesn’t require belief in the supernatural.”Outdoorsman and author Tom Brown, Jr. spent several seasons living in the wilderness of the Pine Barrens. He recounts occasions when terrified hikers mistook him for the Jersey Devil, after he covered his whole body with mud to repel mosquitoes.

One New Jersey group called the “Devil Hunters” refer to themselves as “official researchers of the Jersey Devil”, and devote time to collecting reports, visiting historic sites, and going on nocturnal hunts in the Pine Barrens in order to “find proof that the Jersey Devil does in fact exist.

Here is the History Channel documentary about The Jersey Devil and the sightings:

 

 

Here’s the video where paranormal investigation team has some footage of this creature:

The Jersey Devil Has Been Seen In Southern New Jersey And Eastern Pennsylvania In The Pine Barrens Or Pinelands For Over 300 Years. Even Now Going On To The Current Times Of Today. Yet It Has Never Been Caught On Video, Filmed, Or Even Photographed.

Until This Paranormal Team Caught The First Footage Of The Jersey Devil. It Looks Like The Same Thing People Have Been Claiming To See Since The 1700’s. Watch The Whole Thing. It’s Very Informative And Educational. You Might Get Something Out Of Watching This.

 

 

You can call this another urban legend, but are all these people insane who have seen The Jersey Devil? It’s up to you make up your own conclusions. I just bring these cases for you… and remember there will be more CREATURES FROM BEYOND!

Creatures from beyond part V, Men In Black (MIB) or McCoy

MIB

Maybe you have watched the movie trilogy called Men In Black and thought that what a cool series, but what if they are real? There have been hundreds or maybe thousands of cases where people have reported these Men In Black who interrogate them when they have seen something paranormal or an UFO.

First some description and then the cases:

Men in Black (MIB), in American popular culture and in UFO conspiracy theories, are men dressed in black suits who claim to be government agents who harass or threaten UFO witnesses to keep them quiet about what they have seen. It is sometimes implied that they may be aliens themselves. The term is also frequently used to describe mysterious men working for unknown organizations, as well as various branches of government allegedly designed to protect secrets or perform other strange activities. The term is generic, used for any unusual, threatening or strangely behaved individual whose appearance on the scene can be linked in some fashion with a UFO sighting.

Behavior

According to the accounts of those encountering them, Men in Black always seem to have detailed information on the persons they contact, as if the individuals had been under surveillance for a significant period of time. They have occasionally been described as seeming confused by the nature of everyday items such as pens, eating utensils or food, as well as using outdated slang, old cars or vintage styles of clothing. Reports indicate that they often claim to be from an agency collecting information on the unexplained phenomenon their subject has encountered. In other accounts, they seem to be trying to suppress information by trying to convince their target that the event in question did not happen. They have been described as behaving in either an exceedingly furtive manner or a completely outgoing one, with wide grins and disconcerting giggles.This observation might suggest that the “gigglers” were possibly, though not necessarily, pranksters, as various forms of unexpected, inappropriate, or even bizarre (as in robotic) behavior seem to be hallmarks of these mysterious beings.

Possible explanations

Folkloric explanations:

Although the phenomenon was initially and most frequently reported in the 1950s and 1960s, some researchers – John Keel and others – have suggested similarities between Men in Black reports and earlier demonic accounts. Keel suggests that MiBs are a modern-day manifestation of the same phenomena that were earlier interpreted as the devil or encounters with fairies. Similarly, folklorist Peter Rojcewicznoted that many Men in Black accounts parallel tales of people encountering the devil: neither Men in Black nor the devil are quite human, and witnesses often discover this fact midway through an encounter. The meaning of this parallel, however, has been the subject of debate. Even so, the term “the black man” was used for centuries in reference to the Devil,up until contemporary times when “black man” was used to replace the term “Negro” and the satanic sense was lost. A telling example may be found in an 1837 report in The Morning Chronicle. A certain John Henning, charged with running away with a chest of tea, defended himself with the claim that “he was ordered to carry it by a gentleman in black” who told him to carry it to Petticoat-lane.

The LORD MAYOR: Pray what sort of gentleman was he? – Prisoner: I can’t just tell, please you, my lord; I only know he was in black. The LORD MAYOR: I am afraid it was the gentleman in black that directed you in this matter. Had he a tail? – Prisoner: A tail! A pig-tail, do you mean, please you, my lord? No, I can’t say as he had. The LORD MAYOR: Did you look at his feet? What sort were they? – like a cow’s [a laugh]?

In witchcraft trials “The Black Man” was often reported as meeting with the accused and having sexual intercourse with them. In Washington Irving‘s story “The Devil and Tom Walker” set in 1727, Irving tells how Tom asks “the black man” who he is. The man says he goes by many names and is called the black miner sometimes or the black woodsman. He says that since the Indians are gone, he presides over the persecutions of various religious sects, supports slave dealers and is the master of the Salem witches. Tom replies that he must be “Old Scratch“, which is another name for the devil, and the black man acknowledges that he is Old Scratch. In 1932, H. P. Lovecraft also used the figure of The Black Man in his tale “The Dreams in the Witch-House” as a synonym for the Devil, but he also uses the term and description for Nyarlathotep, a malevolent entity of his own creation. In the Middle Ages the Black Man was not a man with African features, but rather a man colored black and dressed in black.

Military/CIA Explanations

More prosaically, paranormal researcher Jerome Clark cites Bill Moore, who asserts that “the Men in Black are really government agents in disguise … members of a rather bizarre unit of Air Force Intelligence known currently as the Air Force Special Activities Center (AFSAC) … As of 1991, the AFSAC, headquartered in Fort Belvoir, Virginia,” and “under the operational authority of Air Force Intelligence Command centered at Kelly Air Force Base in Texas.”  Curiously, Moore also reports that AFSAC was inspired by the tales of Men in Black from the 1950’s, and had nothing to do with those early accounts. Similarly, Clark notes that Dr. Michael D. Swords has speculated that the Barker/Bender Men in Black case (occurring shortly after the CIA-directed Robertson Panel issued its recommendations to spy on civilian UFO groups) might have been a psychological warfare experiment.

Sightings

Most recent sightings that I have seen is this video where two men in black walks in a lobby. Of cource this is easy hoax, but something tells me that this might be a real case:

The original source of this video is from the Aerial Phenomen Investigations Team in MD. For complete details about this incident contact Antonio Paris from API. Quote from video source: “I work with the Aerial Phenomenon Investigations Team based in MD. One recent UFO investigation yielded actual footage of MIB on a hotel lobby camera. This video has a voice over of the person these MIB came for”. -M. Barnharrt

 

 

Here is a case from History channel’s UFO hunters:

This is a clip from the television show UFO Hunters. For the first time ever, the legendary Men in Black were caught on film, proving they are not a myth. This lends credence to all the eyewitness reports about the Men in Black harassing UFO eyewitnesses.

 

 

Here is the “Stuff they don’t want you to know” episode of Men In Black:

 

Then there is a full russian documentary about these Men In Black:

 

I have dealt with Dan Burisch case before, but he knows about these Men In Black too:

 MIBs: The Men in Black

Kerry Cassidy: OK, so tell us about…Dan Burisch

Dan Burisch: Sure, OK. Well, the Men in Black.

K: …about the Men in Black. Yeah.

D: Part of it is a psychological operation you have within Majestic and that they operate to scare people away from things that they’ve seen, that they don’t want them, you know, further bringing information out in the population. The so-called “people factor.” Anything about that, they attempt, or have attempted… I don’t even know that they’re still in operation… to suppress. Then you have the real McCoy. The real McCoy is not human. The real McCoy is in fact a P-45 J-Rod. They’re using, through the use of some sort of sinuous biomechanical technology, the skin of a dead human.

K: Wow…

D: The skin of a dead human. These are the ones that walk up to you and they look like they’re shuffling like they’ve just filled their drawers. When they speak through this technology that they are wrapping around them, they sound very bland, very monotone. And they don’t belong. You tell very quickly that they don’t belong.

K: Have you met one?

D: I’ve met several of them. They were operating around my work at Sunchase before we were moved to a different location. I can say they’re very “sallow” in appearance. They thought that it was an appropriate expression to sing me “Happy Birthday” one year over at, ah, I think it was at the start of 2003. It was either ‘03 or ‘04 …‘03 I think it was. Yeah…. and I did not like being around them. And they will not think twice of using force on you. They will hit you. They will push you. One did me.

Marcia, not that long ago, got her fill of both types, both the psychological operations people who attempted, a few years ago, to scare her off over at Winchester Park – these were… those were human beings. They were just striking fear in her – and one actual real McCoy… MIB. And this thing… I actually saw it first. It wandered on to… they get confused easily. And that’s a good thing… wandered on to our property at where we’re presently living. And I was walking home from her apartment at the time and I thought a child was swinging on the swingset. There’s a swingset out in front of my apartment. The closer I got, I thought that it was a little older kid wearing black. Then I noticed it had a hat on. And he said, “Swing! Fun!” He was lost in a memory, apparently, of the person that he was wearing. And I looked at him and I got very afraid inside because they carry weapons. They can be killed with weapons too. They were not supposed to be on our property. Our Security did not do its real job. We’re not worried about the real two-legged real humans that just walk around. It’s MIB 1these things…

K: So he was the size of a child? Is that what you’re saying?

D: No, he was… He… I thought it was a child on the swingset as I was walking. It was past dusk. It was dark out there.

K: So he was a normal size.

D: He was a normal size.

K: Man.

D: Yeah.

K: Full grown person.

MIB 3D: Yep. And wearing all black. And he had a black preacher’s type hat. Round brimmed…

K: How do you get rid of him?

D: Well… how do you get rid of him?

K: Yes.

D: Well, it would be very good if a person could actually… I’d better be careful suggesting that…

Marci: Uh huh.

D: …‘cause they are still human beings. They took him into… Security ultimately took him into custody. I just want to be careful liability-wise of making the suggestion about how to get rid of one of them. But…

Marci: People could miscue and we wouldn’t want to have problems.

D: No. Saying, “Well, you know, Dr. Burisch said do this or that.” There shouldn’t be that many walking around. Don’t worry about it.

But it… it wasn’t even sent there to deal with me. It was sent there to deal with her [pointing toward Marci]. And it found itself apparently lost in a memory in the swingset. And I said, “Good! Swing! Good.” Instead of going [makes disgusted face]. Walked in, keyed the door to my apartment, pressed the emergency button for Security, hoping that they were going to respond. Went in and told my mother-in-law what was going on. She looked out of the window and said, “Yep.” She’s been in a Majestic family all her life, and she said, “Yep.” Then the oldest got up and looked out the window and I said, “That’s what one looks like.” It was her first experience seeing one. Yeah.

K: Ohh.

D: And I said, “Doris, go over here.” And I unlocked something and I pulled something out for her and I said, “While I leave here, because I’m going to do the hurt bird routine and lead it away,” (because we had three kids). I said, “I don’t know what its intention is. It may have a lethal intention here and it’s just presently lost. Soon as it gets done swinging, it may pull a weapon out.” And I said, “So if it comes near here, defend yourself and the kids. Meanwhile I’m gonna grab something else,” and I grabbed a weapon, “and I’m gonna try to lead it away.” By the time I had the second weapon out and was armed, it was walking off already, toward her [points at Marci, laughs] apartment’s direction.

So I said, “OK. Well, I still have to get it in case it turns around because if it knows where I went into the apartment, I have to lead it away because there are kids in here. There are little girls in here.” Yep. And so I walked toward it, past it [laughs], walked clear by it, and it just continued shuffling ahead slowly up the sidewalk, gradually toward her apartment.

I got over to her apartment and I said, “Where the hell is Security?” She was pushing buttons over there and nobody had responded. Got on the radio. Nobody responds. I said, “You have an MIB walking toward your apartment right now.” She said, “An MIB?” I said, “Indeed.” I said, “They are dangerous, as you are well aware.” But it was her first experience with something like this. I said, “Come here and look. It can’t possibly…”… and I wanted to make sure it wasn’t walking back toward my apartment where the girls were. I said, “It can’t possibly have reached here by now.” [laughs] I mean, it’s walking slowly. And so she came out with me and she went over by the wall behind a bush and she didn’t see it initially. It was hidden like in the recesses of a light, as it was walking up in one of the shadowed areas. Because now the lights had kicked on on the exterior of the building and all that. And I walked up on to the sidewalk and saw it, and I turned my back on it at that point. They don’t run. So I turned my back on it and said, “You may watch me going that [points in illustration] way,” to Marci. And she said, ‘cause she’s not a faint-of-heart female, “Why?” And then she saw it over my shoulder and got her first .. . laid her first eyes on an ET. And her eyes got about that big [gesturing], which is a normal reaction. And she walked. [looks at Marci and says, “Giving you some credit.”] She actually walked from there back toward the corner of the building, before I saw her break into something more than a walk. She walked away from him.

By then, I’m still standing there and this thing walked by me. Now I’m wondering what… why it’s here, and I said, “Hi.” And it turned this close to me [gestures at arm length] and said, “Hello,” and then it just continued to walk [gestures away]. Walked right past me like I wasn’t even there, toward her. I thought, “Well, OK, it has an assignment. We don’t know what the assignment is.” Because it will not give up its intention behaviorally before it carries out its assignment. And I wasn’t sure if it was armed or what. So I walked by it again. [laughs] This is how slowly it was shuffling. It walked like it had poop in its pants. I mean that’s how he did… I mean, they are clearly not comfortable in the skin.

I walked by it again. Now I had made certain adjustments to the firearm I had on me because I was figuring that whatever was gonna happen, it was gonna happen fairly soon. And if it pulled a weapon out, I was going to do what I learned in the police department and do it well. For propabation.

Got back to her. Got all the way into her apartment. Locked the door. And I said, “Go get your gun.” She pulled the weapon out. “You’ve been a former cop, too. Do what you do. Do it well.” By that time we were both shaking, figuring, you know, it was gonna turn into something very bad.

It sat down on a stairway outside of her apartment and… it had a bag with it. It was a black bag of some sort, and I didn’t know what was in it. It could have been anything. It just sat there, and then it got up, and it walked past her apartment. And now I’m looking at her like, “What the hell is this?” Still no Security. Finally, after it had made its way all the way to the basketball court area… and it stood there and looked around, still confused… Security came up with its weapons [models sighting along rifle] drawn, and took it into custody. Put it in one of the vans and off it went. They cuffed it, you know, like a human being would be cuffed and they took it.

She got a couple photographs off. We actually, because it walked out toward the court… I was looking through the window and said, “Well there’s no way it could get us from here even if it does have a gun on it or whatever.” She stepped out on to her porch and she took a couple photographs with a… [queries Marci] It was a disposable?

Marc: I found a disposable camera that was up on the bookshelf near the door. And I just grabbed it and that’s all I had in my hands.

D: She took a couple photographs of it and we have since made those public on the Eagles Disobey forum. Those are real, the real McCoy. The best I could do enhancements that show, one after another, with it… bringing it out from the background. Those were the best enhancements I could do because the original photograph that we put up there, too, if you saw it, I mean, it was basically jet black. There is no carrying of the flash and it was not set for, you know, night speed or anything like that. It was an indoor/outdoor type daytime camera, a disposable camera. But it was all that was available. Now, Security took photographs and all that but they don’t share ‘em.

mib3_sm

K: Right.

D: At the same time I was doing my weekly reports and I detailed it in my weekly report and I allowed that weekly report to be made available through the website. I said the MIB was taken into custody and no one was injured. But, yeah, he just walked on to our property, assignment still to this day unknown.

K: Hmm.

Dismissed from Majestic

D: Well, following 20 years of service for the Majestic, last October the 12th, which was October 12, 2005, I was dismissed at the time of their adjournment, to complete a final set of orders, if you will, to present the information which I have learned over the last twenty years concerning the extraterrestrial intelligences to the world or to whomever wanted to hear. For the last year’s time we have been committed to a debriefing of my service since 1986 and even actually before that. We’ve ranged into speaking about my early life as well. We’re hoping that within a short period of time, the DVDs will be completed and this will be presented. And this will then conclude my service to Majestic, with a very big relief and “Thank God!”

Project Lotus

Right now we are presently in the middle of several different projects, inclusive of which is Project Lotus, which has basically been dispatched and dismissed to me after the years of service as well. This project…

K: Do you mean it was turned over to you?

D: Well, it’s been turned over. I don’t think that the folks from the former Majestic are continuing the research at all. I really don’t think that they want anything to do with it after the problems that we’ve had and the associated problems at a couple different facilities involving, we’ll say, extraneous energy emissions around the project that caused some damage to their equipment.

Extraneous Energy Emissions

K: To back up a tiny bit, could you tell us what is Project Lotus?

D: Sure. In May of 2001 we traveled to Frenchman Mountain here in Nevada to begin a real project looking for a bio-marker, for a possible precursor virus. It was a rather prosaic study, looking for evidence of panspermia. During the course of that initial investigation we came across some anomalous activity in some of our data sets. That anomalous activity was ultimately tracked down to very unusual electromagnetic activity associated with silicon oxides. And we have since tracked that anomalous activity to any silicon oxides present in minerals… to wit, the activity is the presence of an emission of electromagnetic bundles containing information. We are presently attempting to further define the nature of that electromagnetic anomalous activity. But we have in fact determined that the activity is associated with cells within the terrestrial environment… and that they have effects upon cells in our terrestrial environment, up to and including modifying the genetic material of extant cells in our environment.

K: Are you saying living cells?

D: Yes.

K: Uh huh.

D: We have, together with these electromagnetic emissions, that we have defined with relative precision to date, to be specific varieties of what we termed as particles. We had to call them something. They’re bundles of electromagnetic material, confined discrete bundles, that we believe are possibly related to… as far back as the ancient Pavitrakas of the Hindus… subtle matter particles, which could be imparted into our environment and effect changes. Thus far, we have not observed negative changes, meaning, the effects of these subtle matter particles, if you will, have not affected our environment negatively.

K: But you have had interruptions as the result of these particles being …

D: We’ve had…

K: Anomalous activities.

D: We’ve had anomalous thermal emissions when too much or too little energy was imparted to the silicon oxide-bearing material. We have had unusual drains of batteries around the activity. And we have not defined why. But, there have been two phenomena associated with Lotus that have been particularly striking to me as a biologist. We’ve had re-sets of cells which have occurred. And I say “re-sets” because I’m trying not to make it sound Frankenstein-like… where there have been heat-fixed yeast cells which have been used as, ah… offered, if you will, to this phenomena as target cells. And upon the receipt of material of these dead, heat-fixed yeast cells, we’ve had a re-start of the cells and we have the photographic and the….

K: So they’ve come back to life, is what you’re saying, as a result of this…

D: There has been a…

K: …energy?

D: Yes. I really don’t even like using those terms. It’s out of the book, off the edge of the pizza, so to speak. But we have had a re-start of the cells in that location.  However, the cells which have restarted from the dead cells are not the same cells, are not the same function, functioning, cells as the precursor cells, the precursor yeast cells. We don’t really know what they are.

K: You mean… are you saying that the cells changed and are functioning differently after being exposed to this energy?

D: Yes. We started out with a, essentially a fungal cell, a budding yeast cell which we heat-fixed, and the result was more termed what one would normally term an animal-like cell.

K: Really? So it…

D: Yes.

K: …actually changed it from one thing… it actually transformed it from one thing into another.

D: It transformed it from one thing to another, after imparting to it what we’ve come to call a template. There is an…

K: Is this…

D: …actual imparting of DNA…

K: Ahh.

D: …to the cell. So, we’re receiving DNA essentially across some sort of an electromagnetic barrier, through these… what we call portals, these emissions of electromagnetic energy that then impart further discrete bundles of electromagnetism to our environment.

K: So is…

D: We’re attempting to understand it. We don’t understand what we are truly looking at at the moment. We’ve not truly defined the Lotus as a system.

Ganesh particles

K: OK. But are the particles, are these the Ganesh particles that are coming through?

D: [nods head yes] We think that we defined three basic discrete varieties of particles that we have termed, Alpha, Beta, and C-type particles. The A-type particles were nicknamed “Ganesh” particles, and that’s what they are. They’re nicknames. We had to call them something, so we called them “Ganesh particles,” out of historical deference, if you will, for the Mover of Obstacles.

Shiva Portals

And we called the portals, “Shiva Portals,” as an opening or a changing. These are the admission, or emission, centers, if you will, for these Ganesh particles.

Selkies

And then we have still another variety of particle which we call “Selkies.” And Marcia actually named them. These are C-type particles, and they basically act as almost like crossing guards which line the periphery of an electromagnetic stream that leaves these portals, and basically act as guards or guideways surrounding the Ganesh particles, giving them a pathway to a target. Now the real question, I think, is: How is the decision being made for a target? And we’ve identified on the Selkies what appear to be acoustic antennae. And I say appear to be acoustic antennae, because changes of input into this system, acoustic changes, affect the behavior of the Selkie particles.

K: Sound. In other words…

D: Yes.

K: …sound is affecting the Selkie particles, causing them to redirect the energy, toward the target or away from the target?

Portals = Micro-Wormholes?

D: Causing them to redirect their positions which confine an electromagnetic stream, or a river if you will, being emitted from these portals. And you know, we’ve wondered what the portals are. They might be micro-wormholes.

K: I see.

D: We don’t know right now.

K: And these are nano-sized portals?

D: No. These are microscopic sized. Somewhere within the 20 to… well it would be very transient up to 50… but around the 10 to 20 micron size, micrometer size. And so they’re observable quite readily under a compound microscope if the conditions are held constant and if they are treated delicately. They’re extremely transient phenomena.

K: In other words, you don’t have control over them.

D: No. No. And in fact, we don’t do any direct propagations anymore. The last direct propagation was done last November and we received, for the second time, an anomalous growth of cells in the medium surrounding the crystal that we were using. We were using a quartz crystal, because of the silicon oxide nature of quartz crystal. And we received an anomalous growth of cells of unknown origin around the crystal, so we do not know where these cells were from. We’ve had that happen now twice and we’ve determined that we’re getting a little too good, if you will, at the science of propagating these portals and we’re possibly receiving a negative consequence as a result.

K: In other words, those could actually be an alien life-form.

D: Indeed.

K: OK.

D: Indeed they could be…

K: Very interesting.

D: …they could be extraterrestrial. The cells…

K: Cells. I mean, they’re microscopic, right?

D: Right. You know, we’ve received a mix of very unusual cells which we are not… I was not able to cytologically type. And also cells which appeared nearly prosaic to our ocean here microscopic one-celled organisms – haptophytes.

K: But they came out of nowhere.

D: The material that we had provided to the experiment prohibited a cross-contamination, the ability for this to have been a cross-contamination. So they came from somewhere. They came from somewhere.

Now, also, what we’ve done is a repeat of a very famous experiment called the Spallanzani experiment with beef broth, but we put a tweak on it, if you will. The Spallanzani experiments were experiments designed to either prove or disprove the idea of spontaneous generation. And so the question is then begged: Are we exhibiting spontaneous generation here? And I think that we have zero evidence that this is spontaneous generation. And allow me to explain why.

The Spallanzani experiment that we repeated… we did it exactly the way the famous experiment was originally done… with beef broth that had been boiled, but we actually had it autoclaved so that we had pressure and heat both acting on it, getting rid of all the spore-formers, everything that could have been present in there as a living organism. We left some open, some closed, and then we did a closed and an open experiment where we applied electricity and a silicon oxide-bearing crystal to it. And in the case where we had the closed study done, we received the growth of cells in that closed study which appeared, to me to be neural cells, and organized neural cells, to the point where we could actually tell morphologically that there was an A-B-A-B pattern which was developing. I wouldn’t say that I was in a panic, but [glances right]… Marcia is nodding her head rapidly, off the camera.

K: [laughs]

D: I was in a near panic to cease the study then and there so that we weren’t accidentally producing something with sentience.

K: Wow.

D: Not my right. That would have been an abomination of some variety. I don’t practice, the tools of science devoid of moral considerations. Some, nowadays, I think, have no problem, no compunction against that. I do. So the study was ceased immediately and the cells were photographed. Yes, we have the photographs of them. But the study was ceased and it was killed immediately.

K: OK. Well, this is really kind of earth-shaking information that you’ve got here, and…

D: [nods head yes] Uh huh. Very humbling.

K: …I’m getting it in a way that I understand that makes it very clear.

K: Thank you, Dan. That was quite… quite enlightening.

Ok I think that there is something to grasp on about Men In Black. Like other creatures there is a lots of information in the Net and you just have to look for it and make up your own conclusions. I think that there is truth about Men In Black cases, because there is so many of them and the people stick with their stories. Finally, I have watched the Men In Black movie trilogy and it was pretty entertaining, but what made an impression to me was the part III’s soundtrack. I think it is awesome. It reminded me from John Carpenter’s In The Mouth Of Madness soundtrack, which is also awesome:

 

 

And remember… STAY TUNED FOR MORE CREATURES FROM BEYOND!

Creatures from beyond part IV, Bigfoot, Yeti or Sasquatch

sasquatch-face

Next creature has tons of information in the Net and because of that I try to gather the most latest ones in this posting. This thing is of course the legendary Bigfoot, Jeti or Sasquatch. Most of the info are in the videos below so I’m not gonna tell lots of tales here. First there is a description about this creature:

Bigfoot, also known as sasquatch, is the name given to an ape-like creature that some people believe inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedalhumanoid. The term sasquatch is an anglicized derivative of the Halkomelem word sásq’ets.

Most scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax,rather than a living animal, because of the lack of physical evidence and the large numbers of creatures that would be necessary to maintain a breeding population.A few scientists, such as Jane Goodall,Grover Krantz, and Jeffrey Meldrum, have expressed interest and some measure of belief in the creature.

Description

Bigfoot is described in reports as a large hairy ape-like creature, in a range of 6–10 feet (2–3 m) tall, weighing in excess of 500 pounds (230 kg), and covered in dark brown or dark reddish hair.Purported witnesses have described large eyes, a pronounced brow ridge, and a large, low-set forehead; the top of the head has been described as rounded and crested, similar to the sagittal crest of the male gorilla. Bigfoot is commonly reported to have a strong, unpleasant smell by those who claim to have encountered it.The enormous footprints for which it is named have been as large as 24 inches (60 cm) long and 8 inches (20 cm) wide.While most casts have five toes — like all known apes — some casts of alleged Bigfoot tracks have had numbers ranging from two to six.Some have also contained claw marks, making it likely that a portion came from known animals such as bears, which have five toes and claws.Proponents claim that Bigfoot is omnivorous and mainly nocturnal.

History

Before 1958

Wildmen stories are found among the indigenous population of the Pacific Northwest. The legends existed prior to a single name for the creature.They differed in their details both regionally and between families in the same community. Similar stories of wildmen are found on every continent except Antarctica.Ecologist Robert Michael Pyle argues that most cultures have human-like giants in their folk history: “We have this need for some larger-than-life creature.”

Members of the Lummi tell tales about Ts’emekwes, the local version of Bigfoot. The stories are similar to each other in terms of the general descriptions of Ts’emekwes, but details about the creature’s diet and activities differed between the stories of different families.

Some regional versions contained more nefarious creatures. The stiyaha or kwi-kwiyai were a nocturnal race that children were told not to say the names of lest the monsters hear and come to carry off a person—sometimes to be killed.In 1847, Paul Kane reported stories by the native people about skoocooms: a race of cannibalistic wild men living on the peak of Mount St. Helens.The skoocooms appear to have been regarded as supernatural, rather than natural.

Less menacing versions such as the one recorded by Reverend Elkanah Walker exist. In 1840, Walker, a Protestant missionary, recorded stories of giants among the Native Americans living in Spokane, Washington. The Indians claimed that these giants lived on and around the peaks of nearby mountains and stole salmon from the fishermen’s nets.

Various local legends were compiled by J. W. Burns in a series of Canadian newspaper articles in the 1920s. Each language had its own name for the local version. Many names meant something along the lines of “wild man” or “hairy man” although other names described common actions it was said to perform (e.g. eating clams).Burns coined the term Sasquatch, which is from the Halkomelemsásq’ets (IPA: [ˈsæsqʼəts]),and used it in his articles to describe a hypothetical single type of creature reflected in these various stories.Burns’s articles popularized both the legend and its new name, making it well known in western Canada before it gained popularity in the United States.

FrontiersmanDaniel Boone reported having shot and killed “a ten-foot, hairy giant he called a Yahoo.” Folktale scholar Hugh H. Trotti has argued that Boone’s account may have been the inspiration for some of the Bigfoot stories told in North America.

After 1958

In 1951, Eric Shipton had photographed what he described as a Yeti footprint.This photograph generated considerable attention and the story of the Yeti entered into popular consciousness. The notoriety of ape-men grew over the decade, culminating in 1958 when large footprints were found in Del Norte County, California by bulldozer operator Gerald Crew. Sets of large tracks appeared multiple times around a road-construction site in Bluff Creek. After not being taken seriously about what he was seeing, Crew brought in his friend, Bob Titmus, to cast the prints in plaster. The story was published in the Humboldt Times along with a photo of Crew holding one of the casts.

Locals had been calling the unseen track-maker “Big Foot” since the late summer, which Humboldt Times columnist Andrew Genzoli shortened to “Bigfoot” in his article. Bigfoot gained international attention when the story was picked up by the Associated Press.Following the death of Ray Wallace – a local logger – his family attributed the creation of the footprints to him.The wife of Scoop Beal, the editor of the Humboldt Standard, which later combined with the Humboldt Times, in which Genzoli’s story had appeared,has stated that her husband was in on the hoax with Wallace.

1958 was a watershed year not just for the Bigfoot story itself but also for the culture that surrounds it. The first Bigfoot hunters appeared following the discovery of footprints at Bluff Creek, California. Within a year, Tom Slick, who had funded searches for Yeti in the Himalayas earlier in the decade, organized searches for Bigfoot in the area around Bluff Creek.

As Bigfoot has become better known and a phenomenon in popular culture, sightings have spread throughout North America. In addition to the Pacific Northwest, the Great Lakes region and the Southeastern United States have had many reports of Bigfoot sightings.

On that site there are great number of bigfoot sightings listed and you can heck them out there. Here is one of the latest sightings, which has bee on the news. “Stacy Brown, Sr. and Junior Captures Bigfoot On Thermal Camera”:

Stacy Brown, Sr. and Junior of Crawfordville are part of The Sasquatch Hunters. They say their equipment may have captured footage of the elusive Bigfoot back in May in Liberty County.

“The hair stood on the back of my neck when I figured out it was watching us. Whatever it was was looking out behind that tree at us,” said Stacy Brown, Sr.

The video was shot with a thermal camera in Torreya State Park. Brown, Jr. was skeptical until his own close encounter when he was on a hunt with a friend.

“We were asleep and we felt something push in the top of our tent. My buddy woke up screaming…I woke up and we heard it run off. That’s when I went all in,” said Brown, Jr.

Brown, Sr. said he had his doubts until shooting this footage. The family has spent thousands of dollars to buy equipment and try to go on hunts 10 days a month. Brown, Jr. has been all around the country on different hunts.

He even has a message for the doubters.

“Get out there and come with us, it’ll change your mind I assure you,” said Brown, Jr.

The Browns say they just released the footage because they got it verified by the show Finding Bigfoot.

For more information, go to www.thesasquatchhunters.com. The two say they are always looking for tips, and welcome anyone to join them on a hunt.

 

I think that the best evidence related to Bigfoot can be found on this site:

Here is a small documentary (10min) about that site and it’s sightings:

They have a very good YouTube channel where you can find all their videos and mini documentaries about Bigfoot. Here is one of the best documentry called “The U.S. government knows Bigfoot is Real!”

Jeff Meldrum and Todd Standing talk about why they believe the species commonly referred to as Bigfoot is Alive and well in North America. In this episode Official U.S. government files are shown that specifically list Sasquatch as a legitimate species. This is Episode 8 of season 1. From the Sylvanic cooperation.

Then there is a good up to date information website, which includes tons of information about Bigfoot and sightings. There are also information about missing people that maybe are victims of Bigfoot:

Directors Message

In 2004 North America Bigfoot Search (NABS) was formed with one specific purpose, to follow the mission statement set down by the founders. We are now seven years into our efforts and we have made significant progress.

One of our primary goals was to develop scientific proof that bigfoot/sasquatch does exist. We formulated a comprehensive plan and have been marching precisely to that path since it was developed, without deviation.

On of the first issues in developing the scientific proof was to find physical evidence of the existence of the biped and then bring that to a science team for DNA extraction. Many groups in the past have attempted to find physical evidence of bigfoot/sasquatch but few were able to take it to the next step, DNA extraction and genetic testing. Through the superb efforts of our field team members, NABS has been successful in finding various types of physical evidence that have been utilized for genetic testing. We also knew that members of the public had been collecting specimens from across the continent and we needed those samples to get a proper sampling from across North America, we accomplished this by going on Coast to Coast Radio and asking for other groups and private citizens to participate in our efforts, specimens did come forward and several groups joined our effort.

After three years of utilizing innovative specimen collection techniques, developing synergy amongst different bigfoot/sasquatch groups and finding a scientific team that supported our efforts, we are reaching a milestone. Everyone involved in bigfoot/sasquatch research has been chided, laughed at and ridiculed for our belief and persistence to develop proof, our time is near. Through the scientific efforts of Dr. Melba Ketchum and her team, obstacles that had been present in the DNA extraction process with bigfoot/sasquatch was overcome, DNA was obtained from many specimens under a variety of circumstances. It was Dr. Ketchum’s attention to detail that saw the first valid specimen enter her lab and return unusual results. It was that first unusual result that peaked Dr. Ketchum’s interest in the topic, this could’ve been easily overlooked, it wasn’t, because of the true professional demeanor that Dr. Ketchum exudes on a day to day basis. The science team is preparing a white paper for submission to a science journal to explain their highly unusual and ground-breaking results, more about this in the weeks and months ahead.

This website has been specifically constructed to give the visitor a comprehensive look at the bigfoot/sasquatch topic. You can read about Native Americans and their pictographs from 1500 years ago, researchers in the Bluff Creek area from the 1950’s or read about a man (Archie Buckley) who was a foot and arch expert who developed his own theory about the biped years before there was formalized research on the topic.

NABS has worked diligently and directly to our mission statement to offer the visitor a unique and bias free view of the bipeds world in this website, all in an effort to educate the public about bigfoot/sasquatch. There are three pieces of our work that we believe offer a more intimate view of the topic, The Hoopa Project and Tribal Bigfoot (Author-David Paulides) and the Track Record (Editor-Ray Crowe), all available at our companies store and all centering on the topic of bigfoot/sasquatch.

We hope that visitors to our site enjoy the documents that we have organized and accumulated from five different bigfoot groups and all seem to have come to the same conclusions. Enter this topic with an open mind and inquisitive heart and you will quickly come to the conclusion the biped is much more than a myth.

Thanks for visiting!

My conclusion about Bigfoot, Yeti or Sasquatch is that it might be a real thing, because of the good video evidence and thousands of sightings which start from 1500’s. Now when people have cameras in their mobile phones it’s easier to collect material and I think that in the near future we have to get used to the fact that Bigfoots are real and they live among us. How are we going to deal with this situation? They have a right to live here on planet Earth as we do and this is a good opportunity to deal with another intelligent species. And contact should be done by normal people not military.

There are tons of information, stories and stuff about Bigfoot and you have to check it out to make your own conclusions, but this was my small info packet about this topic. Stay tuned for more about CREATURES FROM BEYOND!

Creatures from beyond part III, Mothman

 mothman2

Next creature in the series could be called real-life Batman, because it’s shape and size. This messenger of disasters is called the Mothman:

Mothman is a legendary creature first reportedly seen in the Point Pleasant area of West Virginia from 15 November 1966 to 15 December 1967. The first newspaper report was published in the Point Pleasant Register dated 16 November 1966, entitled “Couples See Man-Sized Bird…Creature…Something”.

Mothman was introduced to a wider audience by Gray Barker in 1970,later popularized by John Keel in his 1975 book The Mothman Prophecies, claiming that Mothman was related to a wide array of supernatural events in the area and the collapse of the Silver Bridge. The 2002 film The Mothman Prophecies, starring Richard Gere, was based on Keel’s book.

History

On Nov. 12, 1966, five men who were digging a grave at a cemetery near Clendenin, WV claimed to see a man-like figure fly low from the trees over their heads.[5] This is often attributed as the first known sighting of what would become known as the Mothman.

Shortly thereafter, on Nov. 15, 1966, two young couples from Point Pleasant, Roger and Linda Scarberry, and Steve and Mary Mallette told police they saw a large white creature whose eyes “glowed red” when the car headlights picked it up. They described it as a “flying man with ten foot wings’ following their car while they were driving in an area of town known as ‘the TNT area‘, the site of a former World War II munitions plant.

During the next few days, other people reported similar sightings. Two volunteer firemen who sighted it said it was a “large bird with red eyes”. Mason County Sheriff George Johnson commented that he believed the sightings were due to an unusually large heron he termed a “shitepoke”. Contractor Newell Partridge told Johnson that when he aimed a flashlight at a creature in a nearby field its eyes glowed “like bicycle reflectors”, and blamed buzzing noises from his television set and the disappearance of his German Shepherd dog on the creature.Wildlife biologist Dr. Robert L. Smith at West Virginia University told reporters that descriptions and sightings all fit the Sandhill Crane, a large American crane almost as high as a man with a seven foot wingspan featuring circles of reddish coloring around the eyes, and that the bird may have wandered out of its migration route.

There were no Mothman reports in the immediate aftermath of the December 15, 1967 collapse of the Silver Bridge and the death of 46 people,giving rise to legends that the Mothman sightings and the bridge collapse were connected.

Claims of later sightings

UFOlogist Jerome Clark writes that many years after the initial events, members of the Ohio UFO Investigators League re-interviewed several people who claimed to have seen Mothman, all of whom insisted their stories were accurate. Linda Scarberry claimed that she and her husband had seen Mothman “hundreds of times, ” sometimes at close range, commenting, “It seems like it doesn’t want to hurt you. It just wants to communicate with you. ”

Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman claims that sightings of Mothman continue, and told USA Today he re-interviewed witnesses described in Keel’s book who said Mothman was “a huge creature about 7 feet tall with huge wings and red eyes” and that “they could see the creature flapping right behind them” as they fled from it.

Explanations: Paranormal

Some UFologists, paranormal authors, and cryptozoologists believe that Mothman was an alien, a supernatural manifestation, or an unknown cryptid. In his 1975 book The Mothman Prophecies, author John Keel claimed that the Point Pleasant residents experienced precognitions including premonitions of the collapse of the Silver Bridge, unidentified flying object sightings, visits from mysterious or threatening men in black, and other bizarre phenomena. However, Keel has been criticized for distorting established data, and for gullibility.

Skeptical

SkepticJoe Nickell says that a number of hoaxes followed the publicity generated by the original reports, such as a group of construction workers who tied red flashlights to helium balloons. Nickell attributes the Mothman reports to pranks, misidentified planes, and sightings of a barred owl, an albino owl, suggesting that the Mothman’s “glowing eyes” were actually red-eye effect caused from the reflection of light from flashlights or other bright light sources. The area lies outside the snowy owl’s usual range and locals, unfamiliar with such a large owl, could have misidentified the bird.

Folklorist Jan Harold Brunvand notes that Mothman has been widely covered in the popular press, some claiming sightings connected with UFOs, and others claiming that a military storage site was Mothman’s “home”. Brunvand notes that recountings of the 1966-67 Mothman reports usually state that at least 100 people saw Mothman with many more “afraid to report their sightings”, but observed that written sources for such stories consisted of children’s books or sensationalized or undocumented accounts that fail to quote identifiable persons. Brunvand found elements in common among many Mothman reports and much older folk tales, suggesting that something real may have triggered the scares and became woven with existing folklore. He also records anecdotal tales of Mothman supposedly attacking the roofs of parked cars inhabited by teenagers.

Festivals and statue

mothman statue

Point Pleasant held its first Annual Mothman Festival in 2002 and a 12-foot-tall metallic statue of the creature, created by artist and sculptor Bob Roach, was unveiled in 2003. The Mothman Museum and Research Center opened in 2005 and is run by Jeff Wamsley.The Festival is a weekend-long event held on the 3rd weekend of every September. There are a variety of events that go on during the festival such as guest speakers, vendor exhibits, and hayride tours focusing on the notable areas of Point Pleasant.

There is a documentary about this messenger of disaster (3 parts):

 

There is also a movie about this creature called “The Mothman Prophecies” (2002) starring Richard Gere playing the author John Keel:

So there is a small info packet about Mothman for you. I think that this Mothman case could be real, because of hundreds of sightings and reports. It could also be a large bird like an eagle or an owl, but it is unlikely. I think that it is cool to think, that there is a real-life Batman somewhere 🙂  Stay tuned for more CREATURES FROM BEYOND!

Creatures from beyond part II, The Rake

Next creature from beyond is close to Slender Man and is called the Rake.

The Rake

There is not so much information related to this “friend” of Slender Man but here is a small description about the Rake:

The Rake is the name of a creature with very little information about it. It is described by original reports as a “naked man, or large hairless dog of some sort,” with a body position that seemed “unnatural, as if it had been hit by a car or something.” The Rake’s only appearance in video is through EverymanHYBRID, where it is captured in full twice, and is heard at least once.

In relation to Slenderman The Rake is speculated by some to be a Proxy that has, through mutation (perhaps from prolonged exposure to Sigma Radiation), the strange powers Slenderman seems able to give (e.g. The Collective) or perhaps by self mutilation somehow changed overtime into a creature bearing little resemblance to a human being, this would explain why it is able to interact physically with it’s surroundings/victims without (unlike other Canon beings) needing the aid of a human being. It could also be speculated from this theory that there is not and/or has not always been one Rake as it even today has been known to operate across several countries and has witness encounters from hundreds of years ago.

The Rake is so named due to its hands, which appear to be very large claws. It is capable of inflicting serious damage to a victim in seconds and is extremely violent. Not only is the Rake dangerous, but also very silent, capable of easily slipping into the sleeping room of a victim without ever alerting them that they are present. The Rake appears to prefer killing its victims when they are completely unaware of its presence, typically while sleeping, and its accepted M.O of killing is goring and lacerating its target to death where they either die of blood loss or dismemberment. The Rake’s apparent method of travel is portals, which it can materialize in any unseen location.

Origins and History

The creator of the original account of the Rake is yet unknown. According to this account, the Rake was written of on four continents, and was first described in the 12th century (1101-1200), but provides testimony from 1691 at the earliest.

“A Mariner’s Log: 1691
He came to me in my sleep. From the foot of my bed I felt a sensation. He took everything. We must return to England. We shall not return here again at the request of the Rake.”

The next earliest is an account from the 1800s, where it cites a Spanish journal entry, describing “it” as having hollow eyes. Following that is a 1964 suicide note, where the author claims his/her suicide is due to repeated encounters with the Rake, which apparently stalks him/her. She writes that she fears for “Linnie,” as the Rake spoke his/her name. This may indicate that the creature stalks a victim over long periods of time, or tortures victims.

A witness “in 2006” provides the most complete tale of the Rake, when she and her husband awake to the Rake sitting at the end of their bed. It scurries to the bed side, stares at the witnesses’ husband, and then runs into their children’s’ room, where it attacks their daughter. It flees as the couple approaches, and their daughter’s final words are, “he is the Rake.” Her husband and daughter die when rushing to the hospital, driving into a lake. The witness claims having found many more accounts and contacts who are being or have been stalked by the Rake, and that she has heard it speak to her.

In EverymanHYBRID

When it first appeared in EMH viewers well-versed in creepypasta lore recognized the Rake due to its distinct appearance: human in form, but with canine movements, fitting the description from the original creepypasta. In EverymanHYBRID, its presence is usually accompanied by heavy breathing, whispering noises, and loud growls. The Rake is exceedingly strong, with sharp claws. Unlike Slenderman, it doesn’t seem to affect electronic equipment. However, footage seems to blur when The Rake is caught on camera, or nearby. It has been concluded in Consensus that this was not The Rake’s presence, but of technical failure. The Rake is implied to be connected to HABIT somehow, as evidenced by its attack on Ryan. It has attacked Alex, Evan, and Vince. It has killed Jessie, and Ryan, possibly others. It has been speculated to have been involved in attacks on Jeff and Alex’s parents, Lexi, Linnie, and Jessie’s grandmother Rose.

Association

The only known associations the Rake has are Slender Man and HABIT, though these relationships are not clear in their intent, meaning, or actual worth. The Rake’s association with Slender Man are assumed only through the two’s mutual stalking of the EMH crew, relationship with HABIT, and abilities to teleport/slenderwalk/make use of portals. The Rake and Slender Man have another thing in common. On whats argued to be a cloth of the Slender Man’s clothing, and on a victim of the rake they found Sigma Radiation.

The Rake’s relationship to HABIT is unknown, other than it may be a form of referee or rules-keeper for the Seven Trials of HABIT.

In the Slender: The Arrival teaser trailer, there is a hoodie-wearing creature that seems to fear light, and physically attacks the player. The creature seems to bear a resemblance to the Rake, but it is unknown what the bizarre creature is as an image that closer resembles the Rake is seen in Prologue cutscenes. Either it’s a proxy or a new creature.

Here is some encounters with the Rake:

During the summer of 2003, events in the northeastern United States involving a strange, humanlike creature sparked brief local media interest before an apparent blackout was enacted. Little or no information was left intact, as most online and written accounts of the creature were mysteriously destroyed.

Primarily focused in rural New York state and once found in Idaho, self proclaimed witnesses told stories of their encounters with a creature of unknown origin. Emotions ranged from extremely traumatic levels of fright and discomfort, to an almost childlike sense of playfulness and curiosity. While their published versions are no longer on record, the memories remained powerful. Several of the involved parties began looking for answers that year.

In early 2006, the collaboration had accumulated nearly two dozen documents dating between the 12th century and present day, spanning 4 continents. In almost all cases, the stories were identical. I’ve been in contact with a member of this group and was able to get some excerpts from their upcoming book.

A Suicide Note: 1964

“As I prepare to take my life, I feel it necessary to assuage any guilt or pain I have introduced through this act. It is not the fault of anyone other than him. For once I awoke and felt his presence. And once I awoke and saw his form. Once again I awoke and heard his voice, and looked into his eyes. I cannot sleep without fear of what I might next awake to experience. I cannot ever wake. Goodbye.”

Found in the same wooden box were two empty envelopes addressed to William and Rose, and one loose personal letter with no envelope:

“Dearest Linnie,

I have prayed for you. He spoke your name.”

A Journal Entry (translated from Spanish): 1880

“I have experience the greatest terror. I have experienced the greatest terror. I have experienced the greatest terror. I see his eyes when I close mine. They are hollow. Black. They saw me and pierced me. His wet hand. I will not sleep. His voice (unintelligible text).”

A Mariner’s Log: 1691

“He came to me in my sleep. From the foot of my bed I felt a sensation. He took everything. We must return to England. We shall not return here again at the request of the Rake.”

From a Witness: 2006

“Three years ago, I had just returned from a trip from Niagara Falls with my family for the 4th of July. We were all very exhausted after a long day of driving, so my husband and I put the kids right to bed and called it a night.

At about 4am, I woke up thinking my husband had gotten up to use the restroom. I used the moment to steal back the sheets, only to wake him in the process. I appologized and told him I though he got out of bed. When he turned to face me, he gasped and pulled his feet up from the end of the bed so quickly his knee almost knocked me out of the bed. He then grabbed me and said nothing.

After adjusting to the dark for a half second, I was able to see what caused the strange reaction. At the foot of the bed, sitting and facing away from us, there was what appeared to be a naked man, or a large hairless dog of some sort. Its body position was disturbing and unnatural, as if it had been hit by a car or something. For some reason, I was not instantly frightened by it, but more concerned as to its condition. At this point I was somewhat under the assumption that we were supposed to help him.

My husband was peering over his arm and knee, tucked into the fetal position, occasionally glancing at me before returning to the creature.

In a flurry of motion, the creature scrambled around the side of the bed, and then crawled quickly in a flailing sort of motion right along the bed until it was less than a foot from my husband’s face. The creature was completely silent for about 30 seconds (or probably closer to 5, it just seemed like a while) just looking at my husband. The creature then placed its hand on his knee and ran into the hallway, leading to the kids’ rooms.I screamed and ran for the lightswitch, planning to stop him before he hurt my children. When I got to the hallway, the light from the bedroom was enough to see it crouching and hunched over about 20 feet away. He turned around and looked directly at me, covered in blood. I flipped the switch on the wall and saw my daughter Clara.

The creature ran down the stairs while my husband and I rushed to help our daughter. She was very badly injured and spoke only once more in her short life. She said “he is the Rake”.

My husband drove his car into a lake that night, while rushing our daughter to the hospital. They did not survive.

Being a small town, news got around pretty quickly. The police were helpful at first, and the local newspaper took a lot of interest as well. However, the story was never published and the local television news never followed up either.

For several months, my son Justin and I stayed in a hotel near my parent’s house. After we decided to return home, I began looking for answers myself. I eventually located a man in the next town over who had a similar story. We got in contact and began talking about our experiences. He knew of two other people in New York who had seen the creature we now referred to as the Rake.

It took the four of us about two solid years of hunting on the internet and writing letters to come up with a small collection of what we believe to be accounts of the Rake. None of them gave any details, history or follow up. One journal had an entry involving the creature in its first 3 pages, and never mentioned it again. A ship’s log explained nothing of the encounter, saying only that they were told to leave by the Rake. That was the last entry in the log.

There were, however, many instances where the creature’s visit was one of a series of visits with the same person. Multiple people also mentioned being spoken to, my daughter included. This led us to wonder if the Rake had visited any of us before our last encounter.

I set up a digital recorder near my bed and left it running all night, every night, for two weeks. I would tediously scan through the sounds of me rolling around in my bed each day when I woke up. By the end of the second week, I was quite used to the occasional sound of sleep while blurring through the recording at 8 times the normal speed. (This still took almost an hour every day)

On the first day of the third week, I thought I heard something different. What I found was a shrill voice. It was the Rake. I can’t listen to it long enough to even begin to transcribe it. I haven’t let anyone listen to it yet. All I know is that I’ve heard it before, and I now believe that it spoke when it was sitting in front of my husband. I don’t remember hearing anything at the time, but for some reason, the voice on the recorder immediately brings me back to that moment.

The thoughts that must have gone through my daughter’s head make me very upset.

I have not seen the Rake since he ruined my life, but I know that he has been in my room while I slept. I know and fear that one night I’ll wake up to see him staring at me.”

Here is one video of encounter with the Rake:

 Compilation video of the Rake information:

 

I’m not so satisfied related to this Rake information, because there is so little of it. So I think that Slender Man has more potential to be “real deal” than Rake, but hey if you have encountered the Rake, you know that it is real.

But I keep searching more information related to the Rake… and stay tuned for more CREATURES FROM BEYOND!

Creatures from beyond part I, Slender Man (Der Ritter)

Now is time for series about mythical creatures, beings and beasts. The most fascinating one of them is so called Slender Man or “Der Ritter”. I found this about half years ago and it has been in my mind since then. This case is interesting because there are different kind of tales from the past centuries that describe same kind of creature in different names. Here is one description of Slender:

The Slender Man is an alleged paranormal figure purported to have been in existence for centuries, covering a large geographic area. Believers in the Slender Man tie his appearances in with many other legends around the world, including; Fear Dubh (or, The Dark Man) in Scotland, the Dutch Takkenmann (Branch Man), and the German legend of Der Großmann or Der Grosse Mann (the Tall Man).

Der Ritter

German Woodcuts

Renowned German woodcutter Hans Freckenberg created at least two woodcuts featuring a character.

He described as Der Ritter (The Knight) during the mid-sixteenth century that were discovered in Halstberg Castle in 1883. Whilst Freckenberg was well-known for his realistic depiction of human anatomy – something that was unusual among woodcuts of the time – these pictures featured a skeletal, multi-limbed character. Historians are unsure of the exact symbolic nature of the character, with some claiming that it is a personification of the religious wars that raged in Europe at the time, while others say it represents the mysterious plagues that have been believed to be the reason for the mysterious abandoning of the Hastlberg Castle and the nearby village in 1543.

However, many insist that Freckenberg was attempting to represent “Der Großmann” (the Tall Man). According to lgend, he was a fairy ho lived in the Black Forest. Bad children who crept into the woods at night would be relentlessly chased by Der Großmann, who wouldn’t leave them be until he either caught them or they were forced to tell their parents of their wrongdoing. Even then, there is a chillding account from an old journal, dating from about 1702:

“My child, my Lars… he is gone. Taken, from his bed. The only thing that we found was a scrap of black clothing. It feels like cotton, but it is softer… thicker. Lars came into my bedroom ysterday, screaming at the top of his lungs that “The angel is outside!” I asked him what he was talking about, and he told me some nonsense fairy story about Der Großmann. He said he went into the groves by our village and found one of my cows dead, hanging from a tree. I thought nothing of it at first… but now, he is gone. We must find Lars, and my family must leave before we are killed. I am sorry, my son… I should have listened. May God forgive me.”

Selected 20th Century Appearances

The number of Slender Man sightings has increased dramatically during the Twentieth Century. This is generally attributed to increased media coverage and access to news reports from around the globe.

Henderson Horse Farm Incident 1953

The Henderson Horse Farm, located outside Tryon in Polk County, NC, was situated on land owned by the Henderson family since the mid 1800s. By 1953, the farm was owned and run by Ted Wilcox Henderson (41 years old), Judi Henderson (wife, 36), and Tracy Henderson (daughter, 6). On the morning of June 15th, neighbors called local police complaining of hearing screams and the sounds of gun fire originating from the property.

Sherrif Clint Denterman and two deputies, Dan Parks and Chris Fine, arrived at the farm at 8:34 AM. They found that horses in the barn had been torn apart, “almost as if attacked by wild animals.” Inside the main house, reports stated the presence of fresh blood throughout the living room, kitchen, and hallway.

Ted Wilcox Henderson was found in the bedroom, barricaded behind furniture. Next to him was the body of his wife, killed by a shotgun blast to the chest. Ted still had the weapon in his hands. Dan Parks was quoted as reporting:

“Ted had a freaked out, far off look in his eyes. He seemed to not realize that we were in the room. We asked what happened. Where was his daughter. But he didn’t answer.”

Ted was charged with the murder of his wife. However, due to his catatonic state, he was admitted to Jenkins Mental Hospital in Sandy Plains, Polk County. Ted remained in a catatonic state for over three years. On the third anniversary of the murder, Dr Dauton on June 15th, 1956 refer to a “Skinny fella… suit… looking at me…” who had taken both Judi Henderson and her daughter Tracy. Ted claimed that Judi begged him to shoot her, and felt that he had “saved her” by doing so. However, after lamenting that he had been unable to stop the “skinny man” from absconding with his daughter, Ted commenced to “slam his face repeatedly” into the steel table at which he was seated, having to be restrained and sedated by hospital orderlies. Less than seven hours later, at approximately 3:00 am the 16th of July, Ted was found dead in his room after apparently escaping his restraints and chewing through his own wrist, severing the ulnar artery and bleeding to death. The body of Tracy Henderson was never found, however a photograph taken about a week before the Henderson Farm incident shows what appears to be a suited man standing in front of the stables, which some claim to be the Slender Man.

Stirling City Disappearances 1986 – 87

Stirling City, Butte County, CA has been an apparent hot spot for Slender Man activity during the mid 1980s. Following the 1986 Stirling City Library fire, a small number of photographs were recovered, including one that had been taken only a week earlier on June 1st, 1986. On this date 14 children disappeared, followed less than two weeks later by the disappearance of the photographer, Mary Thomas. Some theorists claim that the figure on the left in the photo is the Slender Man, although officials have stated that the apparent extra appendages on the character can be dismissed as film defects.

Five months later, the body of one of the children, four year old Joseph Pertman, was found in the Great Swamp Nature Preserve in Kingston Falls, NJ. Deputy Sherrif Jim Stolz told reporters from the Associated Press that the body was still in early stages of decay, indicating that he was alive for at least four months after his disappearance. It was also reported that the body was found in a state of “bizarre contortion,” although the cause of death was never officially established.

On April 21st, 1987 the Stirling City Post ran a story regarding a rash of animal mutilations in Stirling City, that the Butte County Animal Control Department were attributing to coyotes. As man as nine dogs and cat had gone missing since January, and had been found in various states of decay. many of the pets had been disemboweled, or otherwise seriously mutilated. Animal Control Officer Joel Driscol was quoted as saying that the wounds were “unusually precise” and that it was “rare that a wild animal would leave so much of the carcass uneaten.” Also quoted inn the story was a local man, David Elkins, who was the owner of the latest victim – a cat that had been disemboweled and mutilated.

On July 12th, 1987, police were called to the Elkins’ residence in Stirling by David Elkins, who had reported that his eight-year-old daughter Katrina had gone missing. The only possible witness to the disappearance was Katrina’s ten-year-old sister Alice, with whom she shared a bedroom. SCPD Sergeant William Hohne reported that the last time Alice saw her sister, she was outside the window “hugging the tall man.” According to further statements by Alice, over the previous weeks a man had been coming to the girls’ bedroom window at night, where he would tap on the glass, “make faces,” and watch the girls. However, police investigators initially dismisses the account as a dream, as the bedroom window was on their house’s second story with no support beneath it.

“[Alice] Elkins reported that, on the night of her sister’s disappearance, they were again awakened by a tapping on the glass,” Sergean Hohne explained, “she heard her sister get out of bed, and have a short conversation. When she didn’t hear her sister get back in bed after several minutes, he go up and went to the window, where she saw her sister in the side yard, “hugging the tall man.” According to the witness, the man looked at her, grinning, and indicated that she was to come down as well with a “snakey arm.” it was at this point that Miss Elkins became extremely frightened, and returned to bed. The tapping continued for several more minutes before it finally ceased.”

Alice Elkins’ body was never found, and no charges were ever brought regarding the case.

Jasper, Alberta Disappearances 2009

On January 10th 2009, three skiers – Amanda Fischer, Douglas Bellanger, and Natasha Pierce – disappeared leaving their cabin in Mica Mountains Resort of Jasper, Alberta. A day earlier, another friend, Thomas Chambers, left the party to return to Calgary, apparently due to health concerns. He was questioned by RCMP following the disappearances and allegedly informed them that he had left due to recurring nightmares featuring a tall man in black peering into the cabin windows at night.

Investigators confirmed they had ruled Chambers out as a possible suspect, but considered him a key witness. A source within RCMP, who spoke on condition of anonymity, revealed to the Calgary Sun that officers had confiscated a digital camera and a camcorder at the time of the interview, which were never returned. RCMP were, however, unable to question Chambers further, as he vanished on January 21st. His home was found ransacked that morning, he was never found.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Park Officials commenced a month-long search, culminating in the discovery of Amanda Fischer’s remains high in a tree, in a severely contorted condition. The bodies of Bellanger and Pierce have yet to be recovered.

The Suited Demon

Popular guro author Go Waita created almost 230 stories during his 40 year career, most of which featured his most renowned created, the Suited Demon; a tall, slim man in a dark suit who would kidnap, rape, and murder young girls in the woods. During an interview with Hiro Koga in the February 2009 issue Deadly Doom Delights magazine, Waita claimed that he did not create the Suited Demon, and that he was in fact a real creature that he had witnessed murder his seven year old sister as a child. Waita explained to the interviewer that the “real” Suited Demon was not interested in raping his victims, but his editors and publishers insisted on the graphic sex scenes being added.

Waita went on to say that “I tried to draw different things… normal pictures, portraits, even other types of stories… but it always comes comes up… for forty god damn years!” before becoming too agitated to continue and ending the interview. Hiro Koga stated in the printed article that he considered scrapping it completely before receiving a call from Waita insisting that he print the interview in full. Less than a week after publication, Waita burnt his studio to the ground, committing suicide in the process. Because of this, many understandably cast aspersion on the mental sate of Waita during the interview, and therefore dismissed his claims of the origins of the Suited Demon. Some theorists, however, are prepared to accept this as yet another case of a confirmed Slender Man sighting.

There are also claims that the whole Slender Man is a hoax and here is this story:

The Slender Man (also known as Slender Man or Slenderman) is a fictionalcharacter that originated as an Internet meme created by user Victor Surge on the Something Awful forums in 2009. It is depicted as resembling a thin, unnaturally tall man with a blank and featureless face, and wearing a black suit. The Slender Man is commonly said to stalk, abduct, or traumatize people, particularly children.

Slender Man at park (hoax?)

One of the original photos of the Slender Man, created on the Something Awful forums

Origin

The Slender Man was created in a contest launched on the Something Awful forums on June 8, 2009, with the goal of editing photographs to contain supernatural entities. On June 10, a forum poster with the user name “Victor Surge” contributed two black and white images of groups of children, to which he added a tall, thin spectral figure wearing a black suit.Previous entries had consisted solely of photographs; however, Surge supplemented his submission with snatches of text, supposedly from witnesses, describing the abductions of the groups of children, and giving the character the name, “The Slender Man”:

We didn’t want to go, we didn’t want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time… 1983, photographer unknown, presumed dead.

One of two recovered photographs from the Stirling City Library blaze. Notable for being taken the day which fourteen children vanished and for what is referred to as “The Slender Man”. Deformities cited as film defects by officials. Fire at library occurred one week later. Actual photograph confiscated as evidence. 1986, photographer: Mary Thomas, missing since June 13th, 1986.

These additions effectively transformed the photographs into a work of fiction. Subsequent posters expanded upon the character, adding their own visual or textual contributions.

Development

The Slender Man soon went viral, spawning numerous works of fanart, cosplay and online fiction known as “creepypasta“; scary stories told in short snatches of easily copyable text that spread from site to site.The first video series involving the Slender Man evolved from a post on the Something Awful thread by user “ce gars”. It tells of a fictional film school friend named Alex Kralie, who had stumbled upon something troubling while shooting his first feature-length project, Marble Hornets. The video series, published in found footage style on YouTube, forms an alternate reality game describing the filmers’ fictional experiences with the Slender Man.Marble Hornets is now one of the most popular Slender Man creations, with over 250,000 followers around the world, and 55 million views.The creator of the sandbox indie game Minecraft, Markus “Notch” Persson, added a new hostile mob to the game in 2011, which was named the “Enderman” when multiple users on Reddit and Google+ commented on the similarity to the Slender Man.In 2012, the Slender Man was adapted into a video game titled Slender: The Eight Pages; as of August, 2012, the game has been downloaded over 2 million times.Several popular variants of the game followed, including Slenderman’s Shadow and Slender Man for iOS, which became the second most-popular app download.Several independent films about the Slender Man have been released or are in development, including Entityand The Slender Man, released free online after a $10,000 Kickstarter campaign.In 2013, it was announced that Marble Hornets would become a theatrical film.

Reaction

The Slender Man was called “the first great myth of the web” by BBC.The success of the Slender Man legend has been ascribed to the connective nature of the Internet. While nearly everyone involved understands that the Slender Man is not real, the Internet allows others to build on the established tropes, and thus lend an air of authenticity to the character.Victor Surge has commented that many people, despite understanding that the Slender Man was created on the Something Awful forums, still entertain the possibility that it might be real.Professor Tom Peddit of the University of Southern Denmark has described Slender Man as being an exemplar of the modern age’s closing of the “Gutenberg Parenthesis”; the time period from the invention of the printing press to the spread of the web in which stories and information were codified in discrete media, to a return to the older, more primal forms of storytelling, exemplified by oral tradition and campfire tales, in which the same story can be retold, reinterpreted and recast by different tellers, expanding and evolving with time.Shira Chess has noted that the Slender Man exemplifies the similarities between traditional folklore and the open source ethos of the Internet, and that, unlike those of traditional monsters such as vampires and werewolves, the Slender Man’s mythos can be tracked and signposted, giving a powerful insight into how myth and folklore form.Tye Van Horn, a writer for The Elm, has suggested that the Slender Man represents modern fear of the unknown; in an age flooded with information people have become so inured to ignorance that they now fear what they cannot understand.Troy Wagner, the creator of Marble Hornets, ascribes the terror of the Slender Man to its malleability; people can shape it into whatever frightens them most.

One of the exciting audioclips is from YouTube and is called “Thomas Nealy interrogation (Slender Man attack)”:

 

And finally there is this documentary about Slender Man (5 parts):

 

So is Slender Man a real-deal? I think that in this case like others so called “campfire tales” partly it is true and one part of it is a hoax. But watch out for Slender… and stay tuned for more CREATURES FROM BEYOND!
