Or, they would cloak themselves in the skins etc. of beasts to intimidate etc.

Jaguar warriors in South America for example.

When you are being slaughtered by powerful warriors that look like half man - half beast.....not to mention PTSD etc. whats a person to think?

No, but I have a student, age 13, who does. She was really upset when I showed her research that indicated that it was folklore, urban myth, whatever. Her expression was priceless (or sad, depending on what one thinks of 'werewolves'). Then she tried to 'cover' herself when she called a picture of a wolf a werewolf and I reminded her that it was a 'wolf'- she protested, "That's how I say wolf!". She has pink hair and cannot read beyond kindergarten level, so I understand her confusion ...somewhat. I also caught her lying to another teacher the following day, saying she had done an assignment, but when I looked at her paper, there was nothing written on it. I have sympathy for her because she has severe learning disabilities and sadly believes she is hiding them. I have my work cut out for me. These 'beliefs' just make it more challenging.

I certainly do not believe in werewolves, and in a related matter, I do very much look forward to the demise of the current full-bearded fad.

Blech.

Default Marines?

Pure nonsense. It is Bigfoot whom often gets mistaken for a Wolfman. The timid creature is often mistaken ,yes, but this is alright Bigfeet want to remain concealed. Like the Amish they do not want modern culture
and just want to be left alone.

The closest modern-day equivalent to the true werewolves of history are brotherhoods like the Marine Corps, Navy Seals, Green Beret, etc. Same concept.

Personally, I think they are real to a certain extent. They're not the bloodthirsty killers that go out on full moons. They're pretty much normal people that live with a shapeshifting superpower. That is my opinion. Although science can argue this, science can argue biblical (Holy Bible) events that seem like BS as well (like the red sea parting or Jesus reviving himself). Anyways, I'm going a bit too in depth with this paragraph.

What do y'all think? Do you believe in Lycanthropes (Werewolves)?
There's nothing mythical about it. It's called hypertrichosis.

Um, sure. And vampires and Santa Claus and the tooth fairy and the Easter Bunny and Jesus too.

OP, I hope you are about 9 years old ... otherwise .
