Alabama Sightings: Gorilla or Bigfoot ?

December 17, 2014 – 11:17 AM | 110 views

There have been several Bigfoot reports in the past few years from residents near the Tallapoosa County area in Alabama. In 2012 we broke the news reports about the strange sightings in Hale County and …

Paracas Skulls

The Ancient Elongated Skulls Are NOT Human

Are you ready to be confronted with evidence that will directly contradict the version of “world history” that you were taught in school?

In recent years, hundreds of extremely bizarre skulls have been discovered all over the planet. Scientific tests that have been conducted on some of them conclusively prove that these ancient elongated skulls are NOT HUMAN.

My interest is piqued by the evidence of the plates making up the skull, though I should like to see more than one example. A single aberration does not make the case. As far as the case made by differences in volume of the skull, Wikipedia offers this volume range for primate skulls:

Orangutans: 275–500 cc (16.8–31 cu in)
Chimpanzees: 275–500 cc (16.8–31 cu in)
Gorillas: 340–752 cc (21–45.9 cu in)
Modern Human, Australian Aboriginals: 1,199 cubic centimetres (73.2 cu in) [3]
Modern Human, Japanese: 1,551.8 cubic centimetres (94.70 cu in) [4]
Neanderthals: 1,500–1,800 cc (92–110 cu in)

So the information he is giving is not entirely accurate. Do these skulls warrant study? Certainly, and while he does not come right out and say he believes these skulls are alien in origin, there have certainly been enough stories to that effect that most anyone will jump to that conclusion. While he discusses a “genetic tendency” based solely upon visual inspection of the teeth and lower jaw, actual genetic analysis is what would make the final determination of the relationship between the origin of these skulls and the relationship to their neighbors, or modern humans. I could find no results of a specific analysis of these skulls, but regional DNA testing has been done regarding the peoples who inhabited this are over a span of history and no mention is made in the Abstract of genetic material outside of human, showing only interactions between these peoples through comparisons to modern indigenous peoples.

Who Were the Nasca? Population Dynamics in Pre-Columbian Southern Peru Revealed by Ancient DNA Analyses

Abstract

Through the analysis of ancient DNA from human mortal remains it is possible to gain access to a biohistoric archive containing relevant information about the structure of prehistoric populations. The data obtained help to answer questions related to migration processes and population relationships that could not be answered by the methods of cultural science alone. The aim of this study was to show to what extent the cultural evolution of the southern Peruvian Palpa area was accompanied by processes of population exchange. Bone and tooth samples of over 200 individuals from prehistoric burial grounds from southern Peru were collected and examined with the methods of ancient DNA analysis. The study focuses on the matrilineal population dynamics by the analysis of mitochondrial genetic markers. Mitochondrial haplogroups and types could be successfully determined for over 100 individuals from different archaeological periods. The obtained data were compared with mitochondrial data from recent Native American populations. The results allow us to describe to what extent cultural changes were influenced by allochthonous contributions to the gene pool and how changes in the socioecological complexity of the cultures affected the genetic composition of the Palpa valley population. Also, a significant differentiation of ancient coastal and highland populations in southern Peru is detectable as are changes in the mitochondrial haplogroup distribution patterns as a result of the emergence of the extensive highland empires in later South American prehistory.

I should think that any significant anomaly that suggested these peoples had hybridized with any sort of other creature, or had origins not consistent with indigenous populations past or present might have been worth note in the introduction. That Paracas is in close proximity to the Nazca Plains, being a two and a half hour drive, only lends to the sense of mystery that can easily be built around these obviously strange, but not necessarily alien artifacts.

I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

    Isn’t this just likely to be Artificial Cranial Deformation?

    Anyone can post anything on wikipedia. Scientific papers are the way to go.

  • http://GhostTheory.com/ Henry

    True, but the accuracy of Wikipedia is constantly updated and vastly improved over its early days. It is also readily available, and in this business, there are not always scientific papers to reference.

    Of course there is the Ketchum paper on bigfoot DNA….

    It may be plausible that a non-human species existed and had elevated social status (if not ruling status) and certain human members sought to emulate them through artificial means (skull deformation through binding).

    An article about recent DNA test claims the DNA from one of the larger skulls contains mtDNA mutations previously undiscovered. The article claims that some of the skulls actually have greater cranial volume and skull weight, which, it is suggested, isn’t possible through deformation techniques.

    Sorry, I just realized you responded. Neil Degrasse Tyson once tried to update his OWN wikipedia biography. Someone claimed that he was an atheist when really he is an agnostic. He changed the information and when he checked later, it was back to showing that he was an atheist. So while I do believe that wikipedia can sometimes be a good source, it cannot be trusted. There are plenty of free scientific journals on the internet, you just have to do research. As a science major, I have to be careful with what sources I use to turn in to my professors.
