Mothman on Halloween

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 31st, 2007


Jeff Rense and Brad Steiger wanted to talk a good deal about Mothman for Halloween on The Jeff Rense Show the eeeevvvvveeening of October 31, 2007. (Sorry, they were imitating vampires at the beginning of the show, and it sort of caught on.)

Then after the program was over, I noticed this new posting about Mothman on Halloween.

It’s a small world, isn’t it?

Coming in 2008: Mothman: Evil Incarnate.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    I liked the blurb. It rhymed. But you did that on purpose, didn’t you?

    Loren, you’re a poet,
    But you don’t know it.
    Your feet show it.
    They’re Longfellows.


    OK, it’s sort of a bigfoot joke. 😀

    Mothman has always fired up my imagination. It is such an intrigueing mythology of events and I always enjoy Loren’s thoughts on the matter when he blogs on the topic. One thing that I really find interesting about Mothman is the sheer mystery of it all, and that there seems to be no kind of consensus on WHAT IN THE WOLRD it actually is! It is a subject of endless fascinating speculation for me. By the way, Loren, sounds like a great book! I’ll be sure to check it out when it comes out.

    Loren, I realize writers on paranormal subjects need to be able to sell their books, and that Jeff Rense’s website provides a vast audience who appreciate the paranormal.

    But also hosts a vast collection of anti-semitic writings. Things like “The Strange, Mysterious Eternal Allure Of Adolf Hitler,” which he’s given a permanent front page link for years.

    This Hitler-hugging article, which portrays Hitler as briliant but misunderstood, states sentiments such as Hitler’s hostile attitude to Jews was neither irrational nor aberrant. He simply saw the Jews as Jesus Christ did before him. Jesus said to the Jews: ‘You belong to your father, the devil and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. (John 8:44)

    While it coyly attributes it to “Author Unkown,” when I first spotted it on his site years ago, the only other website offering the essay was that of the National Socialist Movement, in a website bedecked with swastikas. The National Socialist Movement calls itself “America’s Nazi Party,” and supports white supremacy.

    Rense’s site is filled with this sort of hateful crap, and paranormal authors who appear on it enable him to thrive and to keep putting out this shrill, ugly rubbish.

    The old saying, “When you lay down with dogs, you wake up with fleas” applies here.

    I responded positively to an invitation from my old friend Brad Steiger to be on his Halloween special. This is the busiest time of you for me. I was not even sure what station or even what program it was linked to as I know Brad travels in many circles. Various people I happen to be on the same venue with often hold much different political views than I do. It’s called living in America.

    Frankly, I do hundreds of radio shows a year, retain a large can of flea powder near my phone and have defense equipment against the more dangerous morning “zoo radio” shows that think that jokes about “alien anal probes” are appreciated by cryptozoologists. I’ve been on some really terrible programs, and Brad’s show last night showed superb respect for my work, thank you.

    Bottomline with this interview: Friendship to me is extremely important.
