The “Bible” of modern living-pterosaur investigations, Searching for Ropens
will carry you on
a true-life adventure to a remote island in Papua New Guinea
. Not only does this nonfiction reveal details (previously almost entirely
unknown to Westerners) about strange creatures: the “ropen,” “indava,” “seklo-bali,” and “duwas,” but it reveals why it
took so long for Westerners to discover these amazing giant bioluminescent
Rhamphorhynchoid pterosaurs: “Pterodactyls!” Be aware that
this book is strongly Creationist and even has much in the appendix that disputes G.T.E., Darwin’s General Theory of Evolution (anti-Darwin).
Written by Jonathan Whitcomb.
Information and reviews of more books on dinosaurs and pterosaurs
is available for those
with an open mind. Extinction
is not the only possibility for some creatures which may be “living fossils
.” Read at least one book
on the subject of cryptozoology
before giving up on the hope that at least one dinosaur or pterosaur still lives.
Mystery in Acambaro: Did Dinosaurs
Survive Until Recently
Charles Hapgood "researched the Acambaro collection of clay figurines .
. . in the mid-1960s. The Acambaro collection comprises hundreds of clay figurines
that are apparently thousands of years old; however,
they depict. . . . humans interacting with dinosaurs . . ."
nonfiction book by Jonathan Whitcomb
. . . before and after writing the book 'Searching for Ropens, Living Pterosaurs in Papua New Guinea,' [Whitcomb] received many emails
from eyewitnesses of similar creatures in the United States. Four years after returning from his expedition in Papua New Guinea, he
started writing a new book: 'Live Pterosaurs in America.'"
If the idea of a live dinosaur or pterosaur seems unbelievable,
consider why the idea of complete extinctions of all such animals is so often taken for granted. How often the extinction date of
a particular dinosaur or pterosaur is listed, in millions of years! How often is the reasoning behind that declaration explained?
Almost never. In reality, there is no evidence that any “ancient” creature is extinct; assumptions are declared as if fact. But eyewitnesses
should be respected and their testimonies analyzed with objectivity. Isn’t that a principle basis for all scientific progress?
