Early Expeditions in Papua New Guinea, 1994-1996

    While traveling through the South Pacific, Carl Baugh, founder and director of the Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose, Texas,
    heard reports of pterosaur-like creatures in Papua New Guinea. There he found Jim Blume, a missionary with much experience talking
    with natives about the large flying creatures. . . . The large but skinny creature took the body out of the grave after the mourners
    had fallen asleep. . . . his father was robbed of the fish left over the campfire while the men slept. . . . . the creature they believed
    was responsible was “duwas” (called, on Umboi, “ropen”). . . . the ropen held itself upright on a tree trunk, very unlike the byung
    (the Flying Fox fruit bat). . .

    I’ve encountered, that it’s as real to me, almost, as if I had stared it in the face. . . .
