Paiva and Whitcomb
About two scientists who discovered significant evidence for the authenticity of a photograph of a modern pterosaur
Clifford Anthony Paiva (physicist)
Jonathan David Whitcomb (forensic videographer)
A Scientific Paper by Paiva: “Results of Investigations Concerning Pterosaur Sightings In Papua New Guinea” (unpublished, 2007), by Clifford Paiva (BSM Associates, CA) and by Professor Harold S. Slusher, Physics Department, University of Texas at El Paso
Scientific Papers by Whitcomb: “Reports of Living Pterosaurs in the Southwest Pacific” (CRS Quarterly, Volume 45, #3, Winter of 2009) and “An Evolutionary Boundary” (self- published by Whitcomb); he also wrote comments, published online, for “Results of Investigations Con- cerning Pterosaur Sightings in Papua New Guinea” (2007, Paiva- Slusher, as mentioned on the left)
Cliff Paiva found the two evidences shown above: shadows that were consistent (yellow arrows) and a vertical eye slit (vertical pupil like in a cat or a reptile)
Paiva explains his analysis of video footage recorded in Papua New Guinea, on an episode of the TV show Monsterquest (on American television in June of 2009)
Whitcomb was interviewed by Richard Syrett, in May of 2012, for a Canadian television show
Paiva found evidence that this is indeed an old photograph: Notice the tree branch under the beak of the animal. It was used as a prop to keep the man’s shoe as steady as possible during the many seconds required for the photograph to be taken. This is in keeping with photographic technique before about 1870.
