I find that sometimes people have a narrow view of what Christians might be interested in. I remember a friend of mine resisted becoming a Christian because he liked jazz and thought he’s have to throw away his records. He eventually did become a Christian and still plays his jazz. (Maybe he did have to edit his collection).

I say this because we’re doing another dinosaur in literature section and we’re again referencing “Mothman”. That’s because we have a theory that Mothman, Owlman, Batsquatch etc. have sometimes been sightings of the still very much alive pterosaur.

Some Christians have no use for this topic and we understand that. Here at, our interest in the various topics we cover and the phenomenal world is not diminished by our Christianity, though our viewpoint on them often is directed by our Christian view.

Here we present a Mayan piece featuring a headpiece with the unmistakeable head of a pterosaur. The head is recognizable as perhaps a Tapejara, a type of pterosaur found in Brazil with a variety of huge headcrests. The Mayans frequently a man with an elaborate headress featuring an animals or animals. Keep in mind that the pterosaurs we see in current representations are almost entirely from the imaginations of artists who’ve only seen fragments of bones and skulls. See a prior Mayan pterosaur headress here

This piece at the Palenque Mueum in Mexico is between 1200 and 2000 years old. It is reptilian, has an astounding headcrest, the extended prong on the back of the head, and a recognizable pterosaur downturned bill and a “horrible” face. will make the case that it is a pterosaur head graphically, provide articles describing certain pterosaur types in South America and provide a few eyewitness descriptions to show why we believe they could be describing pterosaurs.

Here we’re not trying to convince that this is in fact a tapejara pterosaur, just that it is a type of pterosaur (there is a huge diversity of types. )We believe we’ve proven in this section that man and dinosaur co-existed, but we understand that some of the “evidence” presented is more convincing than other “evidence”. As usual, you’ll have to decide for yourself if we’ve proven the case.
