No.  No werewolves.

Biology doesn't work that way.

Well I didn't think so, but I was just reading that thread about the person who woke up sore and it made me think: The other day I was awake and had a stomach ache, I farted and it went away, I thought it was just gas at the time but now I know this means I'm a werewolf and I therefore do believe!

Life is truly amazing. There is still so much unknown out there! Don't be tricked by facts...

Edit: Because I believe was it ok that I wrote a paragraph? If not, I'm sorry. Just wanted to share my experience.

Ah, its okay. I just don't want a dis believer going on with like, I don't know...Saying stuff that they don't exist. You know, I may be wrong about werewolves. But like you said, don't be tricked by facts.

Isn't that the basic definition of a werewolf? Or has it changed again like sparkly vampires.

BTW - welcome to the forum.


Now, you should probably recognize that when you post something you will receive responses that are pro and con.  If a non-believer says "No" they will likely explain WHY they say what they do.

Just as a believer may support their belief.

You'll get all flavor here.  :)

No I don't believe in the pop culture , Teen-wolf type werewolf.

I have however heard some compelling arguments that perhaps in previous eras , such as in the Beast of Gevaudan story, there was an unidentified subspecies of wolf which were misidentified as "werewolves".

there are many viewpoints on many, many topics here at UM.  If you limit your exposure to only the ones you agree with, then what positive service have you done for yourself?  Perahps I'm being idealistic when I say that a discussion board such as this, is designed to entertain, inform, and hopefully in the process facilitate personal growth through interaction with people who strengthen our views, but also through reading the viewpoints of those who would disassemble our views.  Both are equally valid.

I came to UM a believer in many things that would be considered paranormal and I thought that I was basing those beliefs on solid logical thought.  Then, through participating in discussions I began to realize how flimsy my thinking was.  Now I am more of a skeptic, though an open-minded one.  I'll always change my thinking in the face of incontrivertable evidence.  

At any rate, my path and yours likely won't be the same - nor should they be - but if you deny yourself the exercise of participating in discussion, you are only stunting your own growth.  

Oh and I think that Timothy was being sarcastic about being tricked by facts.  ;)

Namaste' :)

I don't believe in Werewolfs.

Realistically speaking, if Werewolfs existed, atleast in urban neighborhoods, you'd hear of people going missing nearly every week, and investigators finding the mangled remains of the last unfortunate victim.

I'm not a believer in werewolves.  However, the idea of the werewolf rising at the full moon connects well with some resurrection myths, and I think it partially expresses that notion.  Compare with Artemis, who is a deity of the Moon, and is also a hunter of wild beasts; Buddha, who confronts the armies of Mara by the full moon, to achieve enlightenment.  And Amun. '..who gives breath to him who is wretched . . . His wrath passes in a moment; none remains.  His breath comes back to us in mercy.'

I am curious to see how many people here believe in werewolves? I never had seen one, or a creature that looked like one but you know, the truth it out there.


To all of you who don't believe in werewolves, just say you don't. Don't go on with a big paragraph about why you dont think they exist, you never seen one before have you? Maybe that is stopping you from believing?




I believe in werewolves and other 'fantasy' creatures. I believe in other demensions.


No and yes. IMO, there's a few different takes in the whole werewolf mythos. My disbelief or belief kind of shifts around. So.

Bitten by wolf, physically transform into a wolf, shift by the light of the moon kind of were? No.
Mental and physical afflictions that are very wolfie? Yes.
Real canines or other critters that are misidentified? Yes.
The whole spiritual travel or melding or whatever with a wolf kind of thing? I'm not sure. I don't think we have enough information in that area.

I have a lot of different notions on how werewolf legends come into being and keep wandering around, but I don't think those count on the yes or no sides of belief :)

I rarely doublepost,but perhaps some of the idea from people turning into wherewolves came froma real medical condition  called hypertichosis or if excessive "Wherewolf Syndrome".http://en.wikipedia..../Hypertrichosis

But! How do we even know that Lycanthropes would even attack humans? We dont! For all we know, they could be like Josh from Being Human and have recognized their desiease and find a way not to harm humans, ever think of that?
