Don't spend your whole life trying to figure these things out. You won't find the answers.

I checked this book out before and loved it, I didn't have enough time to finish it tho, had to return it. I might go get it again tomorrow and try again.
Edit:Can anyone recommend other books that are like it?
Keel's "Operation Trojan Horse" is another good one that reinforces his theory of ultraterrestrials and high strangeness. A few years ago I read "Mothman Prophecies" in one eight-hour sitting and damaged myself. I've had a fear of Wednesday nights ever since. So, just to make things worse, I read "Trojan Horse." His theories make a strange kind of sense to me, especially the way he lays out the nature of UFO sightings throughout history in "Trojan Horse."
I've decided to try to limit my Keel intake, just to maintain my sanity!
I've bought that book twice, and lost both versions. Every time I had read about mothman, or Keel in general I would say "Hey, tomorrow if you have the time, buy it again, and DON'T LOSE IT." Then I forget. I swear, I'm getting that book again today. THANK YOU for the reminder.
P.S: Graveyard Hound, does your glass case have an alarm and or tripwires? LOL

Search on the Android App Store for "Mothras Unexplained Mysteries" for the app I am very proud of...

I just bought the Mothman prophecies, I am 50% through with it, and I have only had it one day. Anyone have any opinions on it? No spoilers please, if you talk about the content of the book, Ive only read up to the end of the chapter before "If This Is Wednesday, It Must Be a Venusian"
That's a classic... lot's of fun. I always found Keel's discussion of the subject matter to be interesting and his ideas were very different from everyone's else. I'm not sure how much credence to give some of the stuff in the book, but that doesn't mar the simple fact that it's exceedingly well written and interesting.
I found the little sighting factoids kind of fun to read, and it was nice to hear the whole deal after years of being so deeply interested in Mothman. I was disappointed that there weren't many instances of Mothman included, compared to more mainstream aliens. Also... I guess I'll just say it. It was almost painful to read in some places. It got stale, it wasn't very believable, and the timeline was extremely confusing. I wouldn't really recommend it unless you're just salivating for the information. The thing I found most annoying was Keel's tendency to make every instance about him. He's just the author, a researcher, and for some reason everything seems to be aimed at him. Something happens to an acquaintance of his; it must mean that the aliens are trying to tell Keel something. Um, what? Am I the only one to pick up on his egotism?
