when i saw the title of the thread,
"the problem with werewolves"
i thought it was gonna be like, 'they're always leaving hairy pawprints in my butter' or 'when you lend them money they never give you it back' kinda thing.
guess it just shows you how wrong you can be when you really try.....

  • I write because kidnapping people to make them act out your cool and unique fantasies is frowned upon in most states.

Didn't the "dog-headed human" idea root in Egyptian mythology?

Perhaps I'm looking at this from a viewpoint that is too logical for my own good but it just doesn't make sense that a human's body can elongate, lengthen bone structure, grow hair, grow extra teeth, completely change skull structure, lose a few fingers to make paws, and grow claw like nails in a matter of minutes, run around like that terrorizing the countryside, then reverse all those changes to become human again.  Biology does not work that way.  It is an impossibility.

Now that is from the mindset that werewolves are human shapeshifters.  I'm not even gonna get into the wolf/human hybrid thing because that is also genetically impossible.  Freaky women have been practicing beastiality for what may be centuries and I have yet to see a hybrid baby born from that.

Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along.  Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone?

The problem is mankind is still afraid of the dark.

We fear the shadows...we fear our own subconscious mind.

It is physically impossible to alter flesh and bone.  I have always taken the "classic monsters"...vampires, werewolves, revenants, ghouls...etc...to be representatives of our primal mind....fear and desires.

Oh well, I love a good werewolf movie...I sure hope they aren't real...(whistles as he walks past the graveyard)

Wait a minute, isn't whistling as you pass a graveyard bad luck???  Come on, if you don't believe in werewolves, I'm CERTAIN that you believe in hexes and bad luck!!! :whistle:

Just the other night, I did a radio show which briefly touched upon my research and writing in the field of werewolves. One of the things I noted to the host is that despite the fact that most people think werewolves are born out of nothing more than fantasy, folklore, legend, and movie-scripts, the reality is that reports of dog-headed humanoids, and creatures that sound just like the classic imagery of werewolves, absolutely abound, and have done so for centuries.

http://mysteriousuni...ith-werewolves/
This is a noteworthy point. The Dogape of Kentucky is another similar creature, it is a humanoid cryptid with the head of a dog. It is possible that although not in the traditional form, creatures like werewolves do exist.

Am I in the wrong part of UM if I suggest that the problem is not that traditional werewolf transformations are physically impossible, but that you believe it to be impossible. Who are you to say that there isn't something out there that can't be explained or comprehended by what is known today. People keep telling magic isn't real because it can't be physically proven, but if magic by it's nature is something that doesn't follow the laws of physics, then how can it be proven trough physics? What if werewolves (shapeshifters, dogmen chupacabras and whatnot) simply fall under this same category that man is yet unable to explain?

No proper photos? I don't know about you guys, but if I was out in the woods and saw a huge bipedal wolf in photo-range, then taking a solid picture would probably be the last thing on my mind.

No hunter has ever caught one? Suppose a werewolf turns human after being shot, how many hunters would try explaining to the cops: "But he was a wolf when I shot him!"

Then there's the chance that the changes are more subtle than traditional definitions claim.

Or maybe they are more similar to the Finnish "vironsusi":
Spoiler


Then again, I might just be another over-imaginative b****** who's seen too many movies and doesn't have better things to do than trying to argue about these things over the internet...
