Where did the flying creatures come from? The ark of Noah, according to that author of Searching for Ropens and Finding God. Whitcomb learned of the idea from a few cryptozoologists, at about the time he saw home videos, in 2003, of natives in Papua New Guinea. As a forensic videographer, he became convinced that the natives were telling the truth about a flying creature that they call ropen. One year later, he himself would be exploring a remote tropical island in the south- west Pacific, searching for that elusive creature of the night. Since then, he and his cryptozoology associates have declared that the fiery flying serpent of the Old Testament was a long-tailed pterosaur, probably related to the ropen of Papua New Guinea. He adopted the pterosaur interpretation of the fiery flying serpent, not just because it appeared to support their belief in eyewitness sightings of modern “pterodactyls,” but because it made more sense. No snake literally flies, but a featherless winged creature with a long snake-like tail could have been given a name that included “serpent” by the ancient Israelites, at the time of Moses. That would make “flying” literal and “serpent” less accurate. Early in the book, Whitcomb makes it clear that he believes in a literal Biblical Flood: “Why should every species of dinosaur and pterosaur have disappeared? The model of Noah’s Flood suggests that some of them survived into the time of Noah’s descendants, and whatever conditions threatened some species, within several thousand years, some dinosaurs and pterosaurs should have survived.” The author recognizes how unpopular his ideas have been with some paleontologists “Not everybody embraces a live pterodactyl.” As of early 2014, few biology professors have given the long-tailed- pterosaur interpretation much attention. One exception is the biology professor Peter Beach of Oregon, who has gone on his own expeditions in search of the elusive flying creatures of the night. ### KSN News Release Press release published May 15, 2014 The “Gitmo Pterosaur” of eastern Cuba may be related to the “fiery flying serpent Jonathan David Whitcomb, author of nonfiction cryptozoology books on modern living pterosaurs, speculates that the “fiery flying serpent” of the Old Testament may be related to the “pterodactyls” reported from various parts of the world in recent centuries.
