Elaboration from the author: I did not go to Papua New Guinea, in 2004, seeking adventure. A deep explanation of my purposes could not be crammed into the introduction, although the subject of suicide prevention did come up. Pages 43-44 in chapter six—there I explained how a number of suicide tragedies had a place in my decision to go alone to a remote area of the planet, to search for modern pterosaurs. It relates to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Creation in the Old Testament versus popular Western ideas on evolution are not examined in detail in the introduction. Indeed, the book as a whole gives limited space to that deep subject. Yet one idea is introduced here: Don’t ridicule persons just because they carry the label of “young earth creationist.” I extol their accomplishments in this wonderful but strange- appearing branch of cryptozoology. In fact a number of critical beliefs I share with them concerning literal interpretations of the Old Testament.
