The most obfuscated “pterodactyl” photo in history? Article also in Deutsch, Espanol, Français, Nederlands, & 中文 and also available as a Fully Illustrated PPS Powerpoint Presentation 1,6 MB here!
There’s a very old photo that no one can see! It’s not that it doesn’t exist,–it exists alright!–but no one is really allowed to see it by the “thought police”. (George Orwell 1984) But even when people see it, many still can’t see it as it really is! At least, very few. I hope you can! Allow me to set the stage…
When an octopus is threatened it expels a confusing cloud of ink into the face of its pursuer. The ink-fish is still there, but temporarily becomes invisible behind its cloud of ink while it makes its get-away.
It’s similar to how the “Powers-That-Be” (PTB) often obfuscate (muddle) a true historical event into an unclear event, by spewing out pages of printers’ ink, full of conflicting commentaries, opposing opinions, and confusing chatter.
Take for example the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy. The largely unknown, so-called “grassy knoll” shooter Jim or James Files’ confession (1) of firing the last fatal bullet into JFK’s right temple, which made him fall backward and slump toward the left, is purposely obfuscated by reams of newspaper and “tons of ink”, supporting the official (rogue!) American government’s “lone shooter” theory, which still today doggedly claims that “the bullet came from behind!”
The result is that nobody knows anymore what to believe, and they’re incapable to see the Zapruder film evidence as it really is, that the President gets thrown backwards and slumps to his left! Everyone is so confused that most people ‘switch off‘, go in denial, and are too mentally paralyzed to pursue and bring to justice the real perpetrators!–The very criminal power elite that even now is still in charge of America! As George Bush Sr. confessed in an interview with Sarah McLellan, “Sarah, if Americans really knew what we Bushes have done to them, we would be chased down the streets and lynched!”
So what about that “most obfuscated photo”?
There exists an old sepia colored photo that was printed in a “believe it or not” type book in the U.S., according to many people who either used to have a copy or read it. It was published sometime between the 1950-ies and 1960-ies. Later, in the early nineties, this amazing photo got scanned and put on the internet, in plain sight! Nevertheless, today, very few people can see it for what it really is! Their “eyes wide… shut!” Why? Because of “octopus ink“! In this case a devious “doppelganger” photo! [Orig. German: “Doppelganger”= A “double” or “look alike” impersonator.]
A doppelganger picture?
Yes! Because there exists a second, virtually identical imitation of this sepia photo, a yellowish photo with very similar content, that most people also don’t know the origin of! (More on that later.) Here are the two pictures. The first we shall call the real “Sepia (colored) shot” & the second the fake “Yellow shot“:
1) The First “Sepia Shot”. Study carefully! Click on photo to see big size.
2) The 2nd “Yellow Shot” imitation.
What’s up with these photos?
•Both photos show 6-7 American soldiers with similar Civil War uniforms & similar guns.
•Both photos show a dead, non-decomposed carcass of a recently shot pterosaur!?
•Both hunters have similar positions with their left foot on the pterosaur’s head.
•Both photos’ soldiers hold similar positions in similar open spots in a forest.
•Both photos have blurred edges, but the 2nd one’s blur seems applied & more artificial.
•Both photos have a similar fold line going vertically through the picture.
•Both photos have similar scrape marks at virtually identical spots. Coincidence?
•In the 1st sepia shot details are clearer than in the 2nd blurry yellow shot.
•Sun-faded spots in the 1st photo look more genuine than lightened parts in the 2nd.
•It seems that the 2nd is an imitation of the 1st one, except for the pterosaur size!
•Both photos’ content is very CONTROVERSIAL, to say the least!
Photography during the Civil War was already very developed producing clear detailed pictures. Although details on the sepia photo’s edges are not as clear as the middle of the photo, most likely due to chromatic aberration (6), there is no reason for the second photo to be so equally blurred other than by design. Also the Civil War uniforms & equipment in the sepia shot are more correct than in the yellow one, where the belts are incorrect. Also the “Dino” looks kind of flat and non-descript.
We can safely say that the second photo is not as old as the first, and was purely intended as a copy of the first. A “doppelganger“, like Winston Churchill’s look-alikes during World War II, hired to protect him! (How easy it is to deceive the nations. Sigh!)
But what makes these photos so controversial, apart from the weird fact that the second tries to copy the original, is their identical theme! The original sepia photo was taken to record a unique historical event, the shooting down of what to some looks like some “flying dinosaur with canoe-shaped wings!”
But to trained eyes it features some type of pterosaur, a pteranodon to be exact! According to the caption of the original sepia shot from the 60-ies “believe it or not” book, it (the flying dino) was shot down by soldiers during the American Civil War in 1864 near the city of Vicksburg. The book didn’t call it a “dinosaur”, just “some kind of unknown bird or monster”, as far as readers remember.
Most people who see it, will say, “But that’s impossible! Because dinosaurs have been extinct for 65 million years!” Right there, the automatic reaction of most normal people would be to say, “Oh, that is such a fake picture!” and dismiss the photo. They automatically “shut off” their brain by denying what their eyes are actually seeing on the photo, in plain sight!
Why! Because of their educational and media conditioning, but especially when they learn –what they by default had already automatically assumed!– the fact that the yellow imitation is indeed a fake! Not only “rumoured” as such, but debunked and discredited as a proven fake! By who? By its very own creators!
Yes! By its very own creators! Allegedly, an American film & TV production company named “Haxan” claims to have staged the “yellow shot” and its fake pterosaur for their TV series “Freaky Links”, a program on mystery- and paranormal themes for Fox TV in 2001. On their “Freaky Links” website they feature a “Civil War Pterodactyl” page, which “happens” to snag 70 % of all “Civil War Pterodactyl” searches, and is linked to by many other websites.
On this very popular page they pretend to investigate whether their (own!) yellow photo and its “Civil War Pterodactyl” are real or fake! They even feature “expert opinions” of two university professors, who, when you ‘google’ them, turn out to be non-existent in the respective universities! The original sepia shot is hardly mentioned or shown at all, except via one little link to a very small copy of it, where self-appointed “photographic experts” dismiss it as a “perfect Photoshop creation!”
“Watch the hands! Watch the hands!”
“Huh? That yellow photo was designed as fake?! What about the sepia one? What the bleep is going on here?“
Good questions! But by far the biggest question is: “Why didn’t Haxan use the original, much clearer, sepia ‘Civil War’ photo with the far more convincing, really freaky, canoe-winged pteranodon?”
IF Haxan’s ambition had really been ‘to make a successful, lucrative “Freaky Links” edition about real genuine mysteries’, they should have featured and researched the mysterious sepia original instead! Why in the world did they go through all that trouble to produce an imitation of the photo, plus forge a fake monster (a lousy one at that!), and then base their frigging TV program edition on it? Were they nuts?
Nope! They weren’t nuts at all! In fact they were wickedly smart and very cunning! You see, because from phase one, the very goal and objective of the “yellow-fake” creators in the first place, from the onset, the only reason why they created it, was not at all to make a quick buck from some stupid TV emission on some lousy imitation photo! No! Their real objective was to instill skepticism and raise doubts about that original photo!
Whereas the 2001 TV program did use a couple of shots of the original photo, their permanent “Freaky Links” website has been promoting the fake photo ever since the 2001 TV series until today!
Why? To falsely dismiss and discredit the original photo as a fake, to confuse us just as Churchill’s doubles were meant to confuse wannabe German assassins. All along, Haxan’s handlers’ only goal was to black out the original photo, like the sun in a moon eclipse, to make that original sepia shot disappear as a magician spirits away a ball in a “three cups shuffle” trick, all in plain sight while you‘re watching his hands! Weren’t they smart? Oh definitely! They managed to kill most people’s perception by plain psychological warfare!
A strawman, false positives and patsies! Psychological warfare tricks.
In psychological warfare theory this standard trick is commonly known as “creating a false positive” or “strawman“, after which you successfully attack the strawman as fake, thus condemning the entire issue! (4)
For example, Lee Harvey Oswald, the so-called assassin of J.F. Kennedy, was actually created as a “false positive“, also known as a “patsy“! He was chosen, groomed, set up, and served up to die as a disposable patsy, and eventually murdered by another patsy, the Jewish nightclub owner Jack Ruby, because they (the PTB) didn’t want the American public to find out that they had framed Oswald, as he himself claimed he was!
And thus the plot thickened. So thick, that average people couldn’t make sense of it anymore, all the time aided and abetted of course by the deliberate confusion and clouds of printers’ ink expelled by the mystifying mainstream media octopus, usually complicit in such high treason by covering up the big boys’ crimes. Just as they deceived us about 9-11, the Oklahoma bombing, the underwear bomber, and in so many other instances! — Remember, those “weapons of mass destruction bla bla?” Now it’s the “Iran has nuclear weapons” mantra.
Sad to say, now, when people do stumble across the original sepia photo on the Internet, often they’ve already heard rumours in forums about some “fake Civil War pterodactyl photo” in existence. And so they automatically conclude that this sepia shot is either ‘that fake’ or ‘of course also a fake!’ This false notion then gets reinforced every time when someone ‘googles’ it and lands on Haxan’s deliberate dis-info page, where instead of the real original sepia, they are served up the yellow fake! — As Haxan Productions admitted.
So how about the original Sepia Shot? Is it real?
Just like the sepia pteranodon shot, though not as clear, this amazing photo above is another example of obfuscation! It’s a rather small picture of an anatomically correct rhamphorhynchoid pterosaur or pterodactyl, with its characteristic long tail ending in a diamond shape, held up by a short Texan cowboy! This photo is also from a still available seventies’ book titled “Was Earth Visited by Aliens?”, printed long before the days of PC-s and Photoshop!
In this rare scan, the book’s surrounding text is still visible, as usually this dated information is purposely cut off and omitted, so it’s easier to “debunk the Dino” as “another Photoshop!” Yet the book’s caption right above the photo gives the following interesting credit:
“All photos, courtesy of the American Museum of Natural History *illegible* instant photography.“
Now I don’t want to be difficult, but I somehow doubt very much that the American Museum of Natural History would show us all their photo archives, that is, if they still have them! I trust them about as much as the Smithsonian Institute, oft reported to deny or be reluctant to disclose the existence of many other historical OOParts (out-of-place artifacts) they are known to have purged from public view.
In my long research on this issue I’ve seen to what lengths these anti-true-History forces go, to cover-up, connive, and deceive us, and to discredit both of these original sepia photos. But I dare say that the clear Pteranodon photo is the most beleaguered photographic evidence in the world. More dangerous to the ‘Powers-That-Be’ than the Zapruder JFK murder film, bought by Time-Life Magazine who conveniently hid it away from the American public for 14 years! (and probably edited it, as the bottom part is blacked out.)
So why is this photograph more dangerous? Because it obviously is a genuine photo of an 1864 Pteranodon shot down during the Civil War near Vicksburg! And such compelling evidence is clearly not allowed by the NWO, globalist, evolutionary “thought police”, and therefore it had to be “eclipsed” and discredited in a hurry.
Sepia photo clearly features an anatomically correct Pteranodon
“The first Pteranodons in America were first discovered in the upper chalk of Logan County, Kansas by O. C. Marsh in 1870. The only remains collected were the fragments of long wing bones.” (2) Source: oceansofkansas.com/FieldGuide4.html
“Although bones of Pteranodon were first discovered in the 1860s, it was not until after the turn of the century that we had a reasonably complete picture of the animal. Its bones are hollow and thin-walled; therefore, they were usually crushed flat. Also skeletons were generally incomplete. Like our model, it was necessary to incorporate bones from several specimens in order to reconstruct Pteranodon.” (3) Source: http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/museum/public/ingensmount.html
According to the above Berkeley University quote, no one before 1900, (forget about 1864!) knew what an anatomically correct Pteranodon looked like! (except American Indians knew what their ‘Thunderbirds” looked like! See left pic) So for sure no one in 1864 could have faked a fancy prop like this, let alone use plastics or fiberglass to produce a photo as real as this one!
Not even Haxan in 2000 was able to make a half-way decent-looking fake. Their pterosaur prop looks more like a limp plastic bag!
Because this historical photo was published in a book in the sixties as confirmed by witnesses, since this article, detractors can now only counter-attack with something like the following: [NB: These words are made up!]
“This original sepia photo is a fake created before the sixties publication by a conspiracy of Fundamentalist Creationist Christians seeking to discredit Evolution. They created a huge anatomically fully correct Pteranodon, most likely carved out of wood, be it with anatomically unknown canoe-style ulterior wings. (Probably an oversight) Then, these religious fanatics hired U.S. Civil War actors dressed in correct Union uniforms, kepis, brass buckles, side bags, canteens, powder horns, typical beards and mustaches, armed with the correct bayonet rifles, and then staged and photographed the entire scene in an open spot in a forest. Then these religionists printed this fake on old sepia colored paper, scraped, folded, bashed it up, and even bleached some spots under intense focused light, and tore off some of the sides, and voila! A fake photo of a fake Pteranodon, discrediting our many million years’ old true human evolutionary Genesis and our 65 million year old extinction tale of our dinosaurs. Yes! That’s what obviously happened here! Sure!”
That wouldn’t sound very believable, for the simple reason that in the fifties there were hardly any “hard-core creationists” yet –if any– let alone such unscrupulous, militant ones as to even do such un-Christian things as cheating, lying and conspiring to “make a fake dinosaur to attack Evolution“! Only from the mid-1960-s ‘Young Earth’ Creationists promoted the teaching of scientific creationism using Flood Geology.
In America during the fifties, the biggest sin in school was chewing gum, and Evolution wasn’t even widespread in high schools yet. The so-called “Blue Book” of the ‘New Biology‘ was just then during the sixties, being slipped under the radar into high-schools, and apart from some rare individuals, the majority of Christians were hardly even aware yet of the insidious attack on the true historicity of Genesis in their Bible, nor of the fact that dinosaurs and “legendary” dragons were one and the same thing! So such a ludicrous claim would hold very little water. Except with some intellectually challenged forum-ites perhaps?
Haxan’s Very Fakery Proves the Authenticity of the Original Photo!
By the mid 90-ies the ‘PTB’ were unable to simply destroy this 1864 Pteranodon photo, as they seem to have been able to expunge most copies of the original book from history, from the by-them-controlled US libraries and used bookstores, etc! They obviously were unable to intercept this photo, already downloaded too many times, which was doing so much damage and sowing plenty of doubt in their favourite faith-breaking mechanism of Darwinism. As Trinity said in the Matrix movie, “The truth is out there, Neo!”
And so, ever vigilant & on-the-ball as they are, they quickly opted for a strawman tactic instead, to at least try to confuse the ranks. They found willing dupes in “Haxan Productions” (“Hexen” is German for “witches!”), already infamous for creating a successful hoax, the unsavory “Blair Witch Project” movie. And so, these “useful idiots” then fashioned a fake plastic pterosaur prop, photographed it together with dressed up Civil War actors, and until today they stage their yellow imitation shot on their Freaky Links series’ website as “hoax!” and score first place on Google search!
Guess what they named their “Civil War Pterodactyl” TV episode! “Try to Coelacanth this!“ That’s significant! You see, the Coelacanth (“see-la-kanth”) used to be designated by top Darwinists as the “early primate fish long known to be extinct” … until… (ahem!)… the very fish was discovered alive and well, off of the coast of Africa! It turned out to be identical to the fossil and unchanged after “all these hundreds of millions of years of … e-vo-lu-tion!” Catch the drift of their title? They knew exactly that they were covering up! Sorry Haxan, but we are successfully “Coelacanth-ing this“, by exposing your fakery!
IF Haxan had really wanted to make a lucrative episode for their “Freaky Links” series, they ought to have promoted the original sepia picture, so much older and clearer, and as fact rather than fiction! Maybe then ‘Freaky Links’, through this “Living Civil War Pterosaur” episode would have become a grand success and blockbuster! But they didn’t!
Why not? Because that wasn’t at all their objective!
Even IF they had clearly promoted the original real pteranodon photo as fact instead of fiction, it might have unleashed an unprecedented, immediate outcry from the “scientific” world with politically correct media headlines like: “Haxan claims civil war photo shows living dinosaur!” Haxan may have been shut down! IF it would ever have gotten that far, because Fox’s censoring executive editors are always on the ball, and would have canned “Freaky Links” in a hurry before it ever hit the TV screens!
Just about as fast as the Globalists shut down water cars before they ever get into production, as they did to the Japanese Genepax Company for example, who already had cars running, as did water-engine inventor Stanley Meyer, whom they murdered by poisoning! Because they just will not allow competition to their lucrative oily energy scheme, which just goes to show how little these hypocrites really care about a clean environment.
Also Haxan’s executives’ very scheme to not use the original photo on their much visited Freaky Links website, but rather to create and propagate the half-ass, fake imitation instead, again proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, their real intent to discredit, “debunk” and obscure the original sepia photo. Using the original would have achieved the very opposite of what they were actually aiming for, as it would have made the photo world famous!
Logically speaking, there was no reason at all to forge that yellow fake to use in their phony dog-and-pony show, other than the calculated intent to discredit this to-evolution-dangerous photo with a “false positive!” Their concerted efforts to create a false positive to eclipse and “debunk” the original photo, proves the very authenticity of the sepia Pteranodon photo! Their silly scheming gave them away! It also proves what a dangerous threat this sepia photo is to the greatest deception of history, the pseudo-science & fake religion of Evolutionism, their slimy scam uniquely designed to try discredit Genesis’ true and accurate historicity in order to stamp out Christianity!
But it won’t work.
How easy it is to delude ‘Average Joe’
These scammers trying to erase that proud pteranodon from our memory and human history, so far had kind of succeeded. Especially considering the pathetic forum comments on the Sepia by some of these pseudo-intellectual, yet cock-sure, wannabe crypto-zoologists, who prove themselves to be the most undiscerning, confused, easily propagandised adepts and specimen of America’s dumbed-down non-intelligentsia. Below are two examples:
Calling our proud Pteranodon a “Pterodactyl“, as good media parrots they dismiss the photo as “Photoshop at its best!” Never mind that neither Photoshop nor PC-s even existed in the 60-ies when this photo was published.
This forum-ite compares the original sepia with a truly Photoshopped fake dino fabrication:
Such are the sad results of modern “Dewey Education”, the deliberate dumbing-down agenda of the American “Education” department. If you haven’t heard about that yet, do watch Charlotte Iserbyt’s videos on Youtube.
Yet as the saying goes, “Give the Devil enough rope and he will hang himself” In spite of the Haxan deceivers, the truth is out now. I just hope enough people will see this and pass on the word, and link to this, to prove how the Secular Humanist New World Order elite does not just intimidate & murder water-engine inventors to limit us to their filthy oil, but is equally vigilant to suppress any-and-all evidence that proves that Darwinism is at best a joke (on us!), but worst a pseudo-scientific scam and propaganda victory for them! The emperor is naked after all, and only a little boy was brave enough to call him out on it. How about you?
Evolutionist Crypto Gate Keeper Loren Coleman
Another telling aspect to this entire saga is the following!
The fake model of the Yellow photo, was bought up by “respected” evolutionist crypto-zoologist, Loren Coleman! This man –or should we call him Gatekeeper?– broadly displays it on his website no doubt as a strong statement, preaching to his forum choir. But also Coleman is guilty of debunking the strawman, the fake yellow photo as “the fake Civil War pterodactyl!” Neither Coleman seems to wanna feature the “real McCoy.” Why do all these talking heads like to eclipse the true original photo?
16 thoughts on “The Civil War Pterosaur shot no one should see!”- Must read!”
There are modern day reports of sightings of pterosaurs from around the world, including along the border near El Paso. Note also the Ica Stones of Dr. Cabrera, which show interactions between man and dinosaurs. Though supposedly discredited as modern fakes, the original ones are genuine, and deserve further study. See: http://www.daveswarbirds.com/icastones/
Maybe the photo of the Van Meter Visitor also could fit into your collection of alleged Pterosaurus photos? There are some similarities after all.
