Discussion Seven: Mothman

This is the one creature that scares me the most, but it's also fascinating. Mothman might be a little more obscure than some other paranormal creatures, so if you don't know a lot about it, that's okay. You can ask questions and give your opinion.

Mothman is a winged man-like creature that was very active between November 1966 and December 1967 in West Virginia (so if anyone lives around there beware, it's its hunting time now). Sometimes it is described as having a head and other times not so much. But most commonly it has red, glowing eyes, huge wings, super fast gliding ability (it doesn't flap its wings), and a piercing scream.

So, when your mom is driving you around at night and you see a red glow nearby...

Discussion Six: Werewolves

Werewolves have made a comeback in pop culture recently, appearing in popular book series and movies. But where did the legends come from? And can a person be half human, half animal? Many people believe in these creatures of the night. Do you?

Here are some websites that provides everything you would want to know about werewolves and their "cousins." Take a look, and then let us know what you think:

Emily here, just wanted to add: Do you think werewolves fall into the same category as ghost and aliens? Why or why not?

Discussion five: Roswell aliens

Are we alone in the universe? Do aliens exist? The Roswell alien encounters are a very well documented case of life on other planets.

Is this incident proof aliens exist? You decide.
