Pterodactyl sightings

Unread post by Dion » Thu Jan 25, 2018 7:37 am

I thought I would make a thread on Pterodactyl sightings which continue to be seen around the world but mainly in the U.S.A.

Sightings act very similarly to other phenomenon in that they are seen one minute then gone the next, sound familiar?

DO you think they could be still be out there?, or is the phenomenon like any other that they are able to slip into our dimension for a matter of time and back out again?.

There is certainly something going on.

Here is a blog that covers Pterosaur sightings and has many articles to ponder over. http://www.livepterosaur.com/LP_Blog/

Thanks for that link. I am really starting to think that there really must be something like a time/ dimension door/ portal.
To have reputable persons see odd creatures all over the world, then a lack of evidence, yet similar creatures seen soon, again in nearby locations.
Maybe start a list of regular sightings areas. LochNess, Tablelands Rd, Ipswitch, ...and so on.
Maybe rather than saying "Where is it? It must have been a mistake", we should be saying "Its gone. I will have to be faster with the camera next time"

Some good reading there Dion. Thanks. These things are coming from somewhere. Not everyone is "crazy"or making things up. Mistaken identity is doubtful. How could you mistake a dinosaur for a bird or plane?

I have no problem with the interdimensional theory at all. Certainly would explain a lot! Could be something even science cant fathom yet and who knows? Maybe right under our noses or happening in front of us undetected.....or maybe we are the ones that are " not real".... :(

Another good mystery that would be great to solve! As usual, answers are difficult but it's fun to speculate whether it's possible a species of pterodactyl could have survived in the remote mountains of the USA. There have been a lot of sightings are also some compelling stories from New Guinea.
The american indians referred to these creatures as the Thunderbird.
I have a picture in my computer files that supposedly shows a group of soldiers from the american civil war with a giant flying reptile they had shot.

It's an interesting topic, and that is a really great link. (thumb)

I wonder if there's something to the idea that - somehow - these creatures are 'just passing through' when they're seen? It's impossible to prove, but the whole 'here one minute, gone the next' nature of some of these sightings lends itself to that type of explanation.

It reminds me of a book I read as a young boy called Stig Of The Dump by Clive King. Maybe King had the same idea all those years ago?

Very true Searcher, although I always believe that these stories of sightings of cryptids and other phenomena,.... were there's smoke there's fire, so to speak.

There are also those who think the sightings could be attributed to Mothman, but thats a whole other subject.

Here is a very good HOAX video, that gives a good indication of what people may or may not be seeing in regards to Pterosaur sightings.

Excellent thread, Dion!

I've just read the e-book provided in that weblink, and if the Pterasaurs are indeed predominantly assumed to be eating fish or other marine creatures, it makes sense that they might have some kind of bioluminosity present in their gut, which can only be seen if the wings are open, and the belly skin of the creature stretched tighter, and more thinly over the gut. Totally gripping read with those Australian sightings, too!

An interdimensional explanation would be compelling. Does anyone have any information on proponents of the theory?

So it's clearly some sort of remote controlled device made to look like a Pterosaur? It could easily rattle a crowd of people in the right location and under the right circumstances. The 'close-up' portion of the video clearly shows it for what it really is, but if you just saw that for a few seconds in real life while standing on the ground, it would come as a surprise.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interdime ... hypothesis

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wormhole

Ronan Coghlan is one writer who's put the idea forward before as has Bryan C. Laesch. Neither of them are scientist, but they've discussed the ideas in reference to cryptids, UFO's, and various legendary beings from folklore, etc. Nick Redfern also mentions the same idea in his book Three Men Seeking Monsters.

It's not a new idea by any means - the Bermuda Triangle (not to mention the Bridgewater Triangle and a hundred other places) has long been touted as a potential 'crossover point' where time and space might be traversed via some unexplained means or other.

The Ropen is the name given to the pterosaur that reportedly lives in the New Guinea mountains and jungles.

This blog contains links to other sightings. As always, enjoy the read... but remember the line from Normie Rowe's old song..."It Ain't Necessarily So".

I have not watched the linked video yet but the image used is fake. You can tell the photograph has been doctored by looking at the gentleman second from the left. His right arm is obviously extended straight in the original because of how the sleeve folds, or rather does not fold at the elbow like it would if the arm was bent... yet his right hand is holding the wing?

Looking at the other men it looks like they were all standing with arms extended straight, but the fellow I mentioned is obvious, at least to my eyes. (sneaky)

3 hours!!!

Must be a lot of waffle there. Where's the sound editor when he's really needed!

Dion, I assume you've listened to it all. In your opinion, was it really worth spending the time...?

Not really. I think the whole interdimensional theory is being used use to explain a number of things we dont understand. I think we are a long way off for any scientific explanation but they are trying.

The Aboriginal and Native American lore surrounding Sasquatch and the Yowie talk about walking in two worlds etc and some elders simply use the term " interdimensional" or " between dimensions". Must be something to it...

I have read other theories about thinking and living in a four dimensional way which is apparently the way to "see" in the 5th dimension. Nothing to do with science but nothing wrong with keeping an open mind to the possibilities.

Yes quite a bit of waffle much like many 3 hour podcasts, is it worth spending the time? depends on the amount of interest you have I suppose.

Basically Jonathan believes the sightings to be a real phenomenon but I would suggest (guess) from the podcast that he thinks pterosaurs have been able to survive through the centuries like any other flesh and blood animal, much like alligators and crocodiles. There was no real talk of them being a paranormal phenomenon, although it was kinda talked about I think the subject was side stepped which was disappointing.

They are my precise thoughts as well, apparently over 200 Pterosaurs fossilised eggs have recently been found in china some with embryo's. Who knows where that will lead?

Yes. I suppose its like most of the theories.. they are just that. Mostly peoples opinions. Weeding out anything logical is a challenge.

Dion,

Read Matthew Reilly’s book “The Great China Zoo”; a work of fiction, that will give you an idea of what could happen!!
