Smithsonian Embraces Shuttle but “Shoots Down” Pterosaur

"Discovery" Space Shuttle launch in daylight

One of the many launches of the Space Shuttle Discovery, but what about a pterosaur discovery? What about eyewitnesses worldwide?

On April 17, 2012, the Space Shuttle Discovery rode on a modified 747 over the nation’s capital, before coming to its final landing, to be placed in one of the Smithsonian museums. But still the Smithsonian seems to refuse to modify its position on eyewitness testimonies, worldwide, of living pterosaurs. The blog post “Don’t Get Strung Alone by the Ropen Myth” has not been modified.


By the end of 2015, three nonfiction books had been published on eyewitness sightings of living pterosaurs, in eight editions.

  • Searching for Ropens and Finding God (four editions)
  • Live Pterosaurs in America (three editions)
  • Live Pterosaurs in Australia and in Papua New Guinea

In addition, two scientific papers, peer-reviewed, were published:

  1. “The Fiery Flying Serpent” by David Woetzel
  2. “Reports of  Living Pterosaurs in the Southwest Pacific” by Jonathan Whitcomb


Smithsonian Gets “Discovery” but Runs Away From Discovery

To be sure, the Smithsonian’s contributions to scientific knowledge may be immense, but just as none of us as individual humans are perfect, none of our institutions are perfect. I put forth my opinion here that the Smithsonian Magazine blog post “Don’t Get Strung Along by the Ropen Myth,” of August 16, 2010, by Brian Switek, was full of mistakes and missed important things regarding eyewitness reports.

Did Smithsonian Attack Man, Pterosaur, and God?

The Smithsonian, in general, seems unfriendly to the existence of a living God; that is hardly news. But what about attacking the civil and constitutional rights of a human and the existence of a living pterosaur?
