Not your father's Ivory-Billed Woodpecker

This is either brilliant satire or fundamentalists gone hilariously wrong. Either way, it's a hoot and a half:
The goal of Project Pterosaur is to mount an expedition to locate and bring back to the United States living specimens of pterosaurs or their fertile eggs, which will be displayed in a Pterosaur Rookery that will be the center piece of the planned Fellowship Creation Science Museum and Research Institute (FCSMRI). Furthermore, the rookery facility will establish a breeding colony of pterosaurs in order to produce specimens that could then be put on display by other regional institutions or church groups.


Evolutionists have engaged in a propaganda campaign to trick the public into falsely believing that the Earth is billions of years old and that many animals which lived side-by-side with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden actually died millions of years before humans were created (or "evolved" in their twisted view.) By finding and displaying living examples of what the Evolutionists claim is impossible, we will sow the seeds of Evolutionism doubt, thereby making the public receptive to the truth of the Bible.

I'm not entirely sure, but I suspect that the pterosaur's preferred habitat is atop the twin peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

UPDATE: I've just been informed that it is indeed a parody site, which goes through great pains to create a veneer of authenticity by linking to actual fundamentalist sites as well as condemning the Landover Baptist Church. Amazing work, guys!
