there is strong evidence that flying reptiles never died out…they are a thriving species on the islands of the Southwest Pacific

The pterosaurs – that is, the flying reptiles – died out 65 million years ago. That’s the assertion of mainstream scientists.

Their claim is sheer nonsense. Throughout history, people have witnessed flying reptiles. These creatures appear in the Bible. Classical scholars wrote about them. European Christians accurately described them. In Papua New Guinea, people report encounters even today.

In other words, pterosaurs have always lived amongst us. Here is some evidence:

  1. THE PROPHET MOSES (Active 1446-1406 B.C.)

In the ancient Mideast, there were flocks of small pterosaurs.

We first encounter them in the days of Moses. While the Israelites were in the desert south of the Dead Sea, they were suddenly attacked by “fiery serpents.” Moses writes:

From Mount Hor they set out by the way to the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom; and the people became impatient on the way. And the people spoke against God and against Moses, ‘Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and we loathe this worthless food’ Then the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died.The Book of Numbers, Chapter 21:4-6 (RSV Catholic)

Here we are introduced to the fiery serpents. We get clues about their identity:

  1. Their bites were deadly. That indicates that they were poisonous.
  2. They attacked en masse. That means they were social creatures.
  3. They were sent against the Israelites. That means that they were originally far away, and then struck rapidly and unexpectedly.

They cannot be poisonous snakes. The vipers around the Dead Sea are solitary and slow-moving. During the heat of the day, they lie buried in the desert sand.[1]
