Elongated Skull in Paracas

Initial DNA analysis of Paracas elongated skull released – with incredible results

Paracas is a desert peninsula located within the Pisco Province in the Inca 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. These have come to be known as the ‘ Paracas skulls ’. In total, Tello found more than 300 of these elongated skulls, which are believed to date back around 3,000 years. A DNA analysis has now been conducted on one of the skulls and expert Brien Foerster has released preliminary information regarding these enigmatic skulls.

It is well-known that most cases of skull elongation are the result of cranial deformation, head flattening, or head binding, in which the skull is intentionally deformed by applying force over a long period of time. It is usually achieved by binding the head between two pieces of wood, or binding in cloth. However, while cranial deformation changes the shape of the skull, it does not alter its volume, weight, or other features that are characteristic of a regular human skull.

The Paracas skulls, however, are different.  The cranial volume is up to 25 percent larger and 60 percent heavier than conventional human skulls, meaning they could not have been intentionally deformed through head binding/flattening. They also contain only one parietal plate, rather than two. The fact that the skulls’ features are not the result of cranial deformation means that the cause of the elongation is a mystery, and has been for decades.

Mr. Juan Navarro, owner and director of the local museum, called the Paracas History Museum, which houses a collection of 35 of the Paracas skulls, allowed the taking of samples from 5 of the skulls. The samples consisted of hair, including roots, a tooth, skull bone and skin, and this process was carefully documented via photos and video. Samples from three skulls were sent to the geneticist, although the geneticist was not given any information about what they came from until after the genetic testing, so as not to create any preconceived ideas.  

The results of a DNA analysis of one of the skulls are now back, and Brien Foerster, author of more than ten books and an authority on the ancient elongated headed people of South America, has just revealed the preliminary results of the analysis. He reports on the geneticist's findings:

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.

The implications are of course huge. “I am not sure it will even fit into the known evolutionary tree,” the geneticist wrote. He added that if the Paracas individuals were so biologically different, they would not have been able to interbreed with humans.

The result of this analysis is only phase one of many phases of analysis due to take place.  The next tests will involve having the initial test replicated, and conducted on other skulls, so that the results can be compared to see if there are any specific Paracas characteristics. We will update when more details emerge.

...should let archaeologists of repute discuss the implications first,

The only BIG problem with that Quentin, is that any archeologist of repute, is tightly controlled. If they dared, examine and comment positively, they well know they would immediately lose job/fundung for even suggesting anything different to the daft theories. Some of these are that when we came out of the caves, we built the pyramids, that we are alone, that we came from chimp, via Lucy in Ethiopia. etc. Example of coverups. The many skeletons of giants unearthed by early American settlers soon disappeared when the Smithsonian's 'reputable' scientists were called in. Photgraphic evidence and witnesses said so. Why would they lie? Open and discover our origins, but only for the open minded. The 'scientists' will no doubt split their sides in laughter, as I guess you will too.

I visited that site and watched the first two videos.  The standing flying saucer is highly questionable.  1.  It didn't move.  That is not to say that they have to move.  In our  view they can do whatever they want.  I wan't sure it wants' a birdhouse.  2.  The point of view never changed.  That would have provided at least a slightly different perspective.  The tree in the background could have supported the notion that it wasn't supported by something.  


The first video is right on.  Mankind has made a bargain with the devil and it's too late.  


Many "flying saucers" are man made, no question about that!
So whether it is really from outer space or not is quite irrelevant to me...
The question is: who gave "us" the means of building them and what was the deal exactly about!
I don't we will get answers soon!

I checked out the site a bit, and watched the first vid also. The supposedly suspended object never moved. By definition then, it is not a UFO since it is not flying. I can't believe anyone is still trying to pass Billy Meier clips off as genuine, many that I have seen in the past were obvious fakes. Some were clearly models suspended on strings. Meier has never done anything to advance the scientific pursuit of ufology, and from all I've seen on him, he has been a detriment to the quest. John Mack, on the other hand, has done a lot more positive work.

I totally agree with what you wrote Thomast.
The bible about this is 3Forbidden archeology" by Cremo and Thomson.
It takes serious guts to go against the official (nonsense) theories!
Guys like David Icke and so many more are all pointing at other interesting ideas but one has to seriously want to know what the truth could really be !
