This insect is on my window. I believe it is a moth but I have never seen a moth that has a torso of a spider. I live in a rural setting just north of Pittsburgh, PA.

Your moth is a Small Eyed Sphinx, one of the members of the family Sphingidae, commonly called Sphinx Moths or Hawkmoths.  They are powerful fliers.  You can read more about the Small Eyed Sphinx and its other relatives on the Sphingidae of the Americas website.
