These skulls are worth talking about.


DNA Analysis Of Paracas Elongated Skulls Released. The Results Prove They Were Not Human

February 6, 2014

Paracas is a desert peninsula located within the Pisco Province in the Ica Region, on the south coast of Peru. It is here were Peruvian archaeologist, Julio Tello, made an amazing discovery in 1928, a massive and elaborate graveyard containing tombs filled with the remains of individuals with the largest elongated skulls found anywhere in the world.

"It had mtDNA (mitochondrial DNA) with mutations unknown in any human, primate, or animal known so far. But a few fragments I was able to sequence from this sample indicate that if these mutations will hold we are dealing with a new human-like creature, very distant from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals and Denisovans.

My thought is that if the skull elongation was "natural" there shouldn't be so much variation in the shapes of the skulls.

Do we have any actual source on this? This piece is sourced to a paranoid alien conspiracy blog. I'd love to read more, but I'm afraid there's very little actual evidence or proper sourcing of information here.

The "Missing link" maybe? Its an interesting read, and it would be exiting to prove they are from elsewhere in the universe.

I get this feeling lately some sort of disclosure is in the near future. It can be as simple as revealing biological microscopic life on Mars as opposed to "They are real and coming to vist". I think people can accept proof if its evidence vs live visitors. I would be exited personally, and would greet them with balloons and Schlitz malt liquor.

This was my conclusion also. Links going to another questionable site, which links to another...on an on. My google search results showed only one somewhat legit site in the first 3 pages of results-Yahoo-which states the "geneticist" will not come forward and be identified and the person releasing this "amazing" news just happens to run a tourist agency who is "raising funds" for more genetic testing and also wrote a book about the subject. No ulterior motive there.

The skulls were found in 1928 and I'm sure, were not protected from contamination since that date. No telling how they were handled and how many people pawed over them before the "genetic testing".

This- I saw this last week on a different 'blog/news' site. It has actually made it into several. I don't recall where I saw it, but it had a link to another site that negates the testing and study results from these skulls.
The mn who 'heads' this investigation (pun IS intended) used HIS sources for testing and will not release the skulls to anyone else to test.
....I wonder why....

While the testing and sources do look good for any real credibility, what I find most interesting is the shape and volume of the cranium. It is not consistent to the shape a skull takes from head binding. Which I instantly noticed prior to seeing such mentioned in the article.

It would be great to see some other testing results. It would tell us for sure if the skulls are just an inherited deformity or something less earthly.

Melba Ketchum was involved with the Paracas skull DNA analysis, which should be a big red flag for anyone with a speck of skepticism in their veins.

This.

Until the results are published and peer reviewed it is just storytelling.
