Paranormal events are created because we believe in them.

Hm, hard to say. There are many scenarios and theories as to how Slender Man first erupted: one theory, and this is the most believed, is that in the Something Awful Forums, a user entered a "Create Paranormal Images" contest, and created Slender Man as an entry. Of course, there are a lot of people who don't believe this theory, and those are mostly the people that have actually seen Slender Man with their own eyes (because obviously, if just some random dude created this creature online, it couldn't possibly be real, right?) That's the biggest starting point I know of, but then there's stuff like this. This actually doesn't look too old though (the photo with Slender Man in it is very high-definition looking). I've seen way older sources of where Slender Man has been caught in the past (Egyptian heroglyphics, German woodcuts, paintings, folklore, diary entries, World War II photos, etc.) So I highly doubt this was the original creation of Slender Man, but you never know. Heehee, I'm obsessed XDDD

Could you please not? It's kind of hard to differentiate between people using ARG-speak and idiots who actually believe it.

okay, bro, cool your tits. I replied to this like, 3 years ago. ARG folks don't believe it either - that's why it's called Alternate Reality Game. Calm down and reply to some comments from this year, mmkay?

It was created originally on something awful inspired by German folklore.

You do know that victor surge was the guy on the something awful thread that made him, all the folk art hieroglyphs ect followed to make it creepier

ah, another slender man picture. well, this isn't the scariest I've seen, but it is pretty great. There are creepier out there though, so be careful who you trust, and try to get a room that doesn't have blinds. . . no, better get a room that doesn't have WINDOWS for that matter. . . oh, and don't go walking home alone at night. Also, try to avoid places with children or meetings/gatherings where people are wearing tuxedos, because the bastard could be hiding ANYWHERE there. Good luck, and try not to get caught, my friend.

P.S.S. Also, try to avoid situations where you have to use a camera/videocamera, because he ALWAYS shows up in those things XDDDD

*rolls eyes* It DID start on SomethingAwful. Slenderman has turned into a Tulpa essentially to those who claim to see him. Our belief creates him, that's all.

Does this mean we can Un-Believe him? Honestly, If anything deserved a reverse-Tulpa-ing its Slendy, being the most disturbingly dangerously disturbing entity I have ever had even slight-but-still-dubiously-offered-and-only-subjectively-and-debatingly-called proof existed, pardon my wordiness.
To me, the thing is both a well of compulsive, hard to mantain nervousness that may turn to fear if left unchecked, but is also all the more tantalysingly mysterious to my naturally inquisitive, overly imaginative mind. A small part of me marvels at the possibility of its reality, and the excitement of discovering more about it, formulating, theorizing, and analysing the SlenderProblem at every angle, but this is also the part of me that would make me fear him most if he truly existed, especially him coming after anyone I know.
It's existance, even if confined only to fiction as I mostly hope it is, still serves to cause levels of untold and unecessary panic, paranoia, and fear for many, however much it has offered thrills, prank possibilities, and artistic opportunities. This world is scary, painful, and evil enough without the conspiracy (or not, either way) of Slenderman's existance (or not, again).
On top of that, IF he;s real and IF that's because we think of him and observe him in some cases, his actions (passive or not-so-much-so, known or otherswise) suggest he doesn't want to be in this realm of existance. So let scary Slendys lie and do our best to not believe, if at all possible, is what I think. Poking a beehive, especially a not well understood, potentially dangerous, paramormal beehive that tends to stalk you and never let you sleep peacefully again after prodding it too much, is never a good way to stay safe or learn about the bees inside.

*NOTE*Not meant to be ranty, step on toes, or anger anyone, I'm just expresing my own thoughts, theories, opinions, fears, doubts, and feelings on the subject in an incredibly paraphrased form. If well-liked I may expand this into a full submission on my account, so while I don't want flamings, helpful and/or supportive comments will go a long way.
Thank You. :phew:
