Paper on the Ropen
A scientific paper on reports of apparent living pterosaurs has been published in the *Creation
Research Society Quarterly, Volume 45, # 45. Jonathan Whitcomb's article, "Reports of Living Pterosaurs in the Southwest Pacific," includes
detailed analysis of eyewitness accounts. *(peer-reviewed).
Refutation of Hoax Hypothesis
Soon after the two ropen expeditions
of 2004 (to Umboi Island) a very few critics insinuated that reports of living pterosaurs come from a hoax or hoaxes. This hoax-idea
has now been refuted by Jonathan Whitcomb. While writing his latest soon-to-be-published nonfiction book, "Live Pterosaurs in America,"
he analyzed data from many eyewitness reports of apparent pterosaurs in the United States. The wingspan estimates, given by some but
not all of the eyewitnesses, were far different from what would be expected from a hoax or hoaxes.
Ropen reported near
The pilot and copilot of a small plane reported a near collision with a strange non-bird near Indonesia. The pilot first
thought he was on a collision-course with another airplane, but when they passed it, there was a slow flapping of wings. It was obviously
no airplane. The sighting was reported to Jonathan Whitcomb, in 2008.
