(KSN) One of the largest newspapers in the United States, the Houston Chronicle, printed an article dismissive of dinosaurs flying over southwest Texas (mid-December, 2010, by Claudia Feldman). It did admit that something strange causes Marfa Lights. But a cryptozoologist from California answered that dismissal with a bit of philosophy:
“Major newspapers rarely take any position directly opposing a basic cultural tradition of their society. It comes as no surprise that a staff writer for the Houston Chronicle would avoid giving credence to the idea that “dinosaurs” are flying in the respectable state of Texas.”
That cryptozoologist, Jonathan Whitcomb, wrote a book that included the suggestion that the mysterious Marfa Lights are caused by bioluminescent flying animals that may be extant pterosaurs. The Houston Chronicle prefers extinction.
