This will sound like a glorified story, but I assure you there were others besides myself that witnessed these creatures.
We all said the exact same thing when it came to what they looked like.
I am searching for others that seen what we seen that night or any other night.
For those of you who have such a narrow perspective and forgotten that anything is possible in this universe, thus the Planet we reside, remove yourself from your boxes and go interact with nature. It will always awe you.

I knew what we were looking at but could not believe my very sober eyes. It was a Gargoyle or one of those wood cut prints of the fallen angels  from the old bibles. I am looking for people who have seen them like us. For anyone who would like to know what took place that night, I will tell you.

Sacramento California 1989 by the Air Force base. My friend and I were headed to a birthday party. We were traveling Watt Ave. out of town towards bfe or Roseville. We were in a small dodge colt traveling like 40 mph. It was around 8:30pm and it was already dark. I swear on my life that it was like a flippen movie. The moon was so full and low on the horizon. It was so big I remembered when I hit an open field it amazed me. Me and my friend were talking about how big it was and how red it looked. She said oh no there's blood on the moon. I looked at her and got this scared feeling. I was driving so when I was looking at her I could see out her window into the open field and that big red moon. I noticed something running on all fours. The moon was casting a lot of light and silhouetted the creature. It was like as if a human were to try to run on all fours. I asked her what it was and slowed down to around 25 mph and it was not only keeping up but speeding up. It ran along the side of the car about 75 yards away. It was big. If it were beside the car the shoulders would have came up past the door, mid window. It had horns and a tail and was very muscular. We started to freak out and squeal I started to swerve. I looked and we were doing 43mph. It must have heard or seen me swerve because it turned it's head towards us and began to cut across the field towards the car. We started to scream and I hit the brakes because the car got squirrely. It seemed to be picking up speed and looking at us while it made biting motions at us. I screamed a scream Hollywood would have paid a million bucks for and it spread it's wings and took off flying. The wings were so big, they had to have been 16 foot at least. I was so scared I turned the car around right there and went home, fast. My friend and I were shaken up and I told her I was not leaving the house again that night. She agreed that it was best. We get a phone call from our friends asking where we were. I told them we would not be coming. They knew something was wrong because we had been planning to go to the birthday party for sometime. I told him we weren't leaving the house. He insisted that we told him why. I told him he wouldn't believe us if I did. He said, "try me", so we told him. He started to get excited and said two other of our friends seen the same creatures flying around when they were headed to the party. We all know what we had seen because they are know what they look like. We see them in everyday life as stone statues. Statues that guard royalty and elite members of society. I have seen them as devils or demons. They have horns, tails, wings, sharp teeth and claws.... wtf? The lore came from somewhere. They are real and that is soooo scary to me. We were asked by many if were smoking something or drinking and none of us had. Fact is stranger than fiction. I have had a few experiences that I have had with other people. If it hadn't have been that I had someone with me, I am not sure anyone would have ever believed me. I am grateful there were witnesses and now am not as quick to call b.s. on something. There are so many things most never see inside there little boxes. Nature amazes me and the creatures in it. I would love to hear another account.

^There was a woman who posted in the religion boards once about a gargoyle she saw as a child. From what I recall of the story, she saw something dead/dying in a graveyard.

Obviously, she didn't see a gargoyle and neither did you, in my opinion, but might eb what you're looking for.

Ah, found it... http://www.unexplain...l=gargoyle&st=0

Possibly gargoyles as misshapen humanoids with wings is linked back to medieval ideas of Demons.

yeah, it also allows you to see that "wow. so this ISNT possible. glad i went outside and did some tests, instead of sitting on my pc calling people ignorant".
not everything is possible in our universe. thats a childish thing to say.

Well if you think about it, Gargoyles are a protective "entity" on those old buildings.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

As I stated in the earlier part of this thread, there is no question that the earliest 'gargoyles' were clearly depictions of seraphim dragons, then common in Christian lore.  Later the gargoyles simply evolved into more humanoid forms do to the whims of the sculptors, who sometimes had a sense of humor, though the dragon wings and claws remained prevalent.

So do you see my point?  Unless you saw a 'dragon', your gargoyle was NEVER actually considered a real creature.  It is only the evolution of a dragon sculpture made more anthropomorphic and sometimes comical over the years.  This is also why the 'comic satan' who is red, had horns, tail and sometimes wings but in an anthropomorphic body, looks somewhat like a 'gargoyle'.  This entity is described as a dragon in the Bible, and later artists began to embellish the 'dragon' body with human characteristics.

So how could you actually be seeing the living version of what was an artists' fancy?  Or could you have actually seen one of the dragons that gargoyles (and devils) were based upon, and like the artists of old, you ggave it human characteristics.

think before you post.  gargoyles arent scientifically possible, nothing that heavy can fly, and theirs 0 sightings of gargoyles,


Um i think u need to rethink that. Planes are heavier than gargoyles and don't forget the flying dinosaurs.

Perhaps in light of this new information, (the poster who saw the gargoyles) you have it reversed DC.  Perhaps it is the gargoyles that were the originals, but the artists wanted something more powerful and elegant.  The first dragon depictions would have been alterations of the gargoyles that were seen and sculpted as statues on many buildings.  That would explain why the gargoyle seen in 1989 did not resempble a dragon and it should have if your theory is correct.

Actually DC is right in this case, in that Gargoyles originated from dragons:

Quote

The Gargouille

- a dragon which rose from the waters of the Seine, the river in France. It spouted a tremendous blast of water from its mouth which flooded the countryside. It was called Gargouille or "gargler". The sign of the cross subdued it, and the people of France erected statues of the creature on the buildings to instill fear. The statues are known as gargoyles.

Well, quote something that isn't Wiki.

Not that Wiki is a bad thing, but you know. We need something a little more solid, something that has more than one available source to back it up.
