Roll Eyes  This has simply become an annoyance.

 "Coming Darkness" (and your alter egos), you want me to furnish "proof" yet you aren't citing any yourself to back up your various claims like a credible source that states that ancient Greeks made up all of their stories about mythical creatures because of dinosaur fossils for example.

There is some plain old "armchair quarterbacking" going on here when this disagreement (between myself and the multiple identities of the werewolf afficionado) should be debated with facts, statistics, citing research and sources.

Of course, I didn't enter this thread to conduct that kind of debate and get back into this subject (I'm an Atlantologist now and that's why I joined this forum two years ago) and the considerable time and  research it requires -only to simply state what I think are the "scariest monsters" and why, but a werewolf fan took issue with that and claims that werewolves really exist and are common (!) -definitely more common than poltergeists (which is an absolutely ludicrous claim that would be laughed out of any serious paranormal group).  The onus and burden of proof is on this claimant who can only offer (as a referral, and sans any evidence) one episode of "monsterquest" in support!

So perhaps "one of you"/"all of you"/"you" would like to enlighten us here at AO by starting a "werewolves exist and are plentiful" thread and gather together all of the scientific evidence that supports this view.  Until then, this conversation is going no where and is wasting time. 

I may do the same for poltergeists and other dark spirits (though tons have already been compiled by others all over the net) if time allows and my priorities shift. 




"Horus," you are welcome to act like an ass to your heart's content, its's a free forum, however no amount of pomposity/distractions on your part can hide the fact that you are only offering an opinion on your part, with no evidence to back up your conclusions. If this is the way you gather evidence to support your atlantology, I don't doubt that you are a poor scientist.

So, apparently you would like to impose a higher threshold of proof on those who disagree with you, while apparently absolving yourself of providing any proof of your own.  I can't decide whether you are dense or simply the world's biggest hypocrite.

Yes, I read some of your atlantology work. For the most part you are simply congratulating Greg Little on his work.     Cheesy

Let's talk sense here, most people don't believe in poltergeists and 90% of the cases that paranormal investigations turn out to be something mundane. If you are claiming differently, you are simply not staing the facts. So, perhaps in your world there are "serious" paranormal groups that encounter poltergeists on a daily basis but that simply is not reality.

As for the existence of werewolves, the proof is out there, but since you are apparently above presenting any evidence to support your conclusons, I see no reason to show any to support mine. Believe what you wish, perhaps (like poltergeists) leprechauns are also a favorite of yours and you will passionately defend them, too.

Apparently that is one more episode than you have provided to support your conclusions, my pompous friend.

There are several such werewolf threads in the Supernatural section.  If you have been too disinterested to ever check them out, that is your problem, not mine. I usually do my homework before stating something, you, apparently, are simply given to flip statements.

I disagree, this whole conversation has been a waste of time. Since, apparently, you are incapable of "debating" anyone on the facts and have to resort to character assasination to make a point.

The best debates, "Horus," are where educated people supply facts and cases to back up their points, not resort to distractions and insults.  And yes, I know I have resorted to a few of mine in this reply, but I have to admit that I have never been quite partial to pompus people who pretend to know it all.  Roll Eyes
