What is a Ropen? – the Basics

Posted on Posted in Papua New Guinea

Eyewitness’s sketch of a ropen seen in Cuba around 1965 I recently saw a Facebook comment on the group Living Pterosaurs of the World: “What are the Ropens and Pterodactyls?” I made many comments and recommended online resources (including this blog), and recommended my new book, Searching for Ropens and Finding God. But not everybody wants […]

I included these five eyewitnesses in my newly published non-fiction book Searching for Ropens and Finding God. Eskin Kuhn and Patty Carson are given much attention, yet more eyewitnesses are mentioned, including three siblings of Carson. Patty Carson & her two brothers & a sister, in a posed photo unrelated to ropens In the above photo, the four children of […]

Perosaur Sketch by Eskin Kuhn

Woodpeckers, Flintstones, and Long-Tailed Pterosaurs

Posted on Posted in Reply to Skeptics

Reply to a Post by Dale A. Drinnon: “Cuban Pterosaurs?” How far some skeptics will go to find a non-pterosaur explanation for pterosaur sightings! Featherless long-tailed flying creatures with long bony head crests are not misidentifications of woodpeckers, but there is more. Dale Drinnon has made some apparently accurate generalizations about the two main groups of […]

PEGS – Pterosaur Eyewitness Group Support

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Papua New Guinea, Reply to Skeptics

How often an American eyewitness has expressed anxiety over what was observed! What’s wrong with a living pterosaur? Think about it: nothing in the creature itself. But our Western culture indoctinates us from childhood, constantly emphasizing extinctions millions of years ago. I have started organizing the Pterosaur Eyewitness Group Support (PEGS) to encourage open communication between […]

New Eyewitness Reports of Pterosaurs

Pterosaur in Cuba Yesterday, I spoke by phone with Tom Carson, the brother of eyewitness Patty Carson. His 1966 sighting sighting, about one year after Patty’s, seems to have been a smaller creature of the same species. This brother and sister never spoke with each other about their sightings until 2011, after I began interviewing Patty […]

The second edition of a nonfiction book on pterosaurs, Live Pterosaurs in America, is nearing completion, probably becoming available on Amazon in November, 2010. Several additions to this cryptozoology book make this revised edition more valuable.

Science and modern pterosaurs

Posted on Posted in Fossils

Something in our Western culture seems to say “unscientific,” whenever the subject of modern living pterosaurs comes up. It’s not the countless fossils sitting on countless shelves in countless laboratories and museums, for countless fossils are very similar to presently-living organisms. Could it be that we have been indoctrinated, for generations, into the idea that […]
