More About Living Pterosaurs
Cryptozoology involves searching for elusive creatures unclassified by Western science. . . .
Consider these news releases on living dinosaurs and pterosaurs.
Scientific theories are based on philosophical axioms, cultural points of view. The basic axiom underlying
all science is that there are predictable events under specific conditions . . . The "Live Pterosaur" approach
involves comparing divergent points of view . . .
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). . .
Quotations from the book Searching for Ropens
About the ropen, believe what you will; what do I think about this creature? Such is the power of the testimonies of the eyewitnesses
I’ve encountered, that it’s as real to me, almost, as if I had stared it in the face. . . .
Throughout human history come fascinating reports . . . From “fiery flying serpents” of the Bible . . . to strange flying creatures in England
Eyewitnesses of large featherless flying creatures
Most sightings are of a creature with a long tail and no sign of feathers. . . . Two Australians saw a giant reptilian animal flying over Perth
Bioluminescent flying creature seen by Steven Cottingham near Lab Lab.
Credibility of the Umboi Island eyewitnesses
[They] claim to have seen a giant ropen and describe it in terms suggesting a pterosaur
. . . there is a native tradition (around some small islands in Papua New Guinea) about a dragon they call "wawanar."
