Mothman Mystery Solved! So Not

Posted by: Regan Lee on January 14th, 2014

Guest blog by Regan Lee at Mothman Flutterings:

I apologize for the lousy quality of the image; using a different computer. But you get the idea. This is the one, and only, page in the big reveal: Mothman mystery solved by Soldier of Fortune magazine. Which, for those of you, such as myself, who are Fortean-Conspiracy minded, is a very interesting magazine indeed, regardless of any Mothy info.

The “article” by Harold Hutchinson is a mere one page. Not even that, for roughly 1/4 of the page is taken up with graphics and the title “UFO Mystery Solved: “Mothmen” Were Actually Green Berets.

So right away, the complex topic of UFOs is combined with Mothman, and we’re off. Yes, UFOs were seen in Pt. Pleasant along with Mothman, but the intent here is to just put all the weirdness into one category and be done with it.

Of course, not all the weirdness that was, and is, the aura of Pt. Pleasant is mentioned.

John A. Keel’s book Mothman Prophecies is mentioned, but not the author:

“In 1975, the book The Mothman Prophecies was released, with actor Richard Gere and actress Debra Messing starring in a shady 2002 film of the same name.”

“Shady?” And is it necessary to use “actress” — it’s 2014, usually nowadays we just use actor to describe those who act. But anyhoo, we all know Gere and Messing are actors, actresses.

The article has revealed the truth: Mothman wasn’t Mothman, but parachuting Green Berets, painted in luminous paint, which naturally glowed in the dark. Reason for the paint, according to the article: “…to keep track of personnel.” Seems obvious that night parachuting soldiers painted in luminous paint would be seen, yet this surprised the military:

“What the Green Berets making those jumps hadn’t figured on was the fact that people on the ground could see it was well.”

Hutchison references the lust filled humans of Pt. Pleasant inferring that their judgement was clouded, not only by the glow in the dark parachuting soldiers, but hormones. In the fist paragraph, witnesses are described as “…preparing for an intimate moment” when “their plans were interrupted” by Mothman, er, glowing soldiers. Later, they are referred to as “…the amorous couple…”

“Hysteria continued…” while the military kept quiet on their top secret maneuvers in Pt. Pleasant. The reason for the glow in the dark parachuting soldiers: HALO, which was being tested during the Vietnam War, more specifically, invasion into Laos.

Well, not since the crash test dummies as the Army been so blatant in their explanations for mysterious phenomena.

It goes without saying that this little puff piece of would be debunkery ignores the history of high strangeness in Pt. Pleasant, including a military presence that, I and other researchers suspect of manipulating the very real paranormal and anomalous phenomena that has been a part of that locale for decades, if not centuries.

I am mildly curious what the uber skepti-trolls have to say about this, for example, over at the James Randi forum, but I’ll save that for another day.

    The name of the magazine you referred to is SOLDIER OF FORTUNE, not “Fortune of Soldier”. It must be hard times indeed at SoF indeed if they’re indulging in this drivel.

  2. Regan Lee responds:

    Very embarrassing. Fixed it on my other blog. It is, indeed, Soldier of Fortune magazine!
