(SOS/ASAP/WTF) Leaping Lepidopterae! Did you see the news today –> MOTHRA is on the way!
The good news is, I can finally stop having nightmares about Godzilla. The bad news is, there may be more than one. Many, many more.
Was Mothra a prophetic warning for the 21st Century?
An SOS 99.98% truer-than-true story in progress…
Here’s the facts. Scientists have found that radioactive fallout from the nuclear disaster at Fukushima has resulted in severe mutations to the butterflies.
Researchers collected 121 butterflies from Fukushima and found the majority of them had mutated legs, antennae and wings. They fear this is just the beginning as the results seem to be amplified with every new generation…
The mutant butterfly news came as a surprise to scientists who believed butterflies and other insects to be immune to the effects of radiation.
The mutant butterfly news did not come as a surprise, however, to anyone who has ever seen a MOTHRA movie.
Remember Mothra? Radioactive mutant moth deity, friend of fairies, defeater of Godzilla and defender of the earth? She has stickier silk than Spiderman, laser beams that shoot out from her antennae and sticky poison powder.
When the average radioactive butterfly lives a few weeks and the mutations are amplified every generation, how long will it be before we see the real Mothra?
Speculation around the world today, is the story of Mothra may have been created by one or possibly an entire team of time travelers on a mission to educate us and help us prepare for the 21st Century.
And survivologists including me are scrambling to find old copies of Mothra films so we can be prepared. So far in my opinion, the first step is to confirm the hieroglyphic symbol that is said to summon her.
Until then, try to remember that Mothra was generally pro-co-survival of the species. She is the only monster to defeat Godzilla more than once. She even protected the earth from Alien Godzilla. Sure she trapped a few cars and planes with her cocoons and started a few buildings on fire, but it was mostly in defense of humanity.
She also fought other radioactive monsters, which is good news if like me, you are still worried about the Radioactive Wolfman of Chernobyl.
