The Flatwoods Monster and Mass Confusion
So today I saw the HISTORY CHANNEL's 'MONSTERQUEST' episode on the Flatwoods Monster. Mind you, the episode was titled REPTILE MAN or whatever, so I was expecting something entirely different. Instead I was subjected to yet another analysis of the Starchild Skull and Stanton Friedman in the woods, scoping out evidence that the eyewitnesses of the Flatwoods monster where high on natural gases, and therefore hallucinating.
Meanwhile, a forensic artist pieced the Starchild Skull together and a Biological Archaeologist tested the skull for (more) oddities. I did find out some interesting things today, despite the fact that this episode was a hodge-podge of 'let's-throow-everything-in-there-including-the-baby-and-the-bathwater' ideology.
First off, the Starchild will never look human to satisfy any agenda. No matter how many artists these networks can hire to piece that thing together. Its eyeballs couldn't move (it's impossible for that being/child to have had normal eyes, unless the History Channel plans on airing an episode on FROG PEOPLE and having the Starchild Skull analyzed again), its neck was thick (with extra muscle and tendon to support the unusually proportioned head) and nothing like a humans, so don't give me any crap about cradle boarding or head modifications due to the culture in which that child was raised. The Starchild is biologically odd. It was born that way.
And speaking of culture, etc.,. we are talking about a being that is over 900 years old. It did not come from a cradle boarding culture, seeing as the female skull found with it was normal. In fact, I venture to guess that this child was probably feared...an outcast. And perhaps murdered. That would explain why the child was buried and the female skeleton wasn't. She probably had to bury the poor thing and chose to die beside it.
Who knows what the story is with the Starchild. But I am certain it is a sad one. Imagine if that person existed today.
On another note, finding out that the eyes never moved because it may have been able to see peripherally without looking side to side like we do, was awesome. But what really got me was finding out the FLATWOODS monster was reptilian!!! When did this piece of information come to light? Where have I been? I don't ever recall hearing the Flatwoods monster was a reptilian being with 2-fingers (on each hand) and that it terrorized so many people. Nevermind the fact that there's an old model car somewhere that bares the handprint of this creature. Burned straight through the paint.
And, now I find out the people of that part of Appalachia say the beast (or beasts, because now I know some hunter saw 3 at one time) is still there, and I can only ask why. I mean, maybe there was a reason in the 50's, but why keep coming back? And why in the same suit? Our technology has progressed since then, so why aren't they walking around in adaptable suits instead of hovering in hoverskirts.
But the one aspect I cannot wrap my head around is the fact that most of the eyewitnesses have had or died of or are still struggling with throat and lung cancer. Something is definitely there, in Flatwoods. Not sure if it's reptilian or what, and 100% not even certain what the Starchild has to do with it...seriously History Channel, what was that about...but anyways, I do believe something happened there back when Freddie May and company saw it, and it could still be happening.
And if those things are still scoping out that particular part of the U.S. I wonder what the hell they're looking for.
