just like Predator in the movie ? if "It" there to scared people means it warn human right?
As discussed previously, it is nonsensical to attributes human characteristics to something patently non-human. We can't know what it's motivations are or were.
In most physical encounters, the people involved get pursued by whatever it is. That surely is terrifying, however it doesn't directly link into a warning about an upcoming event. If the intention was supposed to be a warning, it's a very odd and vague one indeed - I've just been chased down the road by an eight foot tall winged being with red eyes - oh, that means the bridge will collapse in a few months...!?

i believe Nessie is the 1st cryptid, eh? the 9/11 flying things proven not mothman, never heard about mothman before katrina
wait...what? what do you mean proven to not have been mothman? Who proved Mothman existed in the first place?
You seem to be lost on the concept of 'man' in the title mothman, like its a name given to some legendary beast of folklore that prowls the forests of Point Pleasant and leaves scant clues to its existence like a chupacabra...
it's not a cryptid.
In fact, Mothman in the original story was only a single part of the overall greater phenomenon at the time, which was the great UFO flap on 1966 - 1968. Mothman took a backseat to the sightings that year, with around 100 reported sightings of the entity....compare that to the thousands of UFO reports.....wouldn't it be safer to assume that UFO's are more of a harbinger of death than mothman ever could be?
Loonboy's argument was spot on:
If the intention was supposed to be a warning, it's a very odd and vague one indeed - I've just been chased down the road by an eight foot tall winged being with red eyes - oh, that means the bridge will collapse in a few months...!?
The notion that Mothman is seen before disasters is just playing to our own fantasy about the entity, we're creating story's for a creature that has really only popped up once in history in the form it did in Point Pleasant. Other story's carry similar traits, but it is essentially not the same entity.
You need to understand that Mothman was never the centre of the story....there were far more terrifying events going on at the time in the surrounding West Virginia and Ohio areas. UFO's were seen buzzing the towns nightly, ordinary townsfolk became contactees for alien civilizations, and the word M.I.B was introduced into our vocabulary for the first time.
The fact that it was seen in New York or in New Orleans doesn't fit the profile of the original story....
