Paracas Skulls are not Human

The Paracas skulls were unearthed in 1928 by the archaeologist Julio Tello. From the moment they were first examined there has been debate over them because they are an extremely unusual shape and are heavier than normal human skulls. The upper part of the cranium is extended backwards and upwards instead of being the natural shape. Making somebody's head an unusual shape can be achieved by binding the head of a baby before the sections of the upper skull have joined together. This used to be carried out by many ancient cultures and was done for cosmetic reasons. Sometimes an unnaturally shaped head was a status symbol and only the children of the elite classes or priesthood would be granted it. Contrary to what you might think, artificially warping an infant's head involves no negative health risks, however once the alteration is done and the bones of the skull are set, the process cannot be reversed. The Paracas skulls are different from other examples of artificial cranial deformation because of their extreme difference from normal and the way they have added weight and size as well as altered shape. Then a few days ago the archaeologist and ancient alien researcher Brian Foerster announced that he'd organized DNA tests on the skulls that indicate that they are not human, or not completely human. He reported that: "...the mitochondrial DNA (from the mother) presented mutations unknown to any man, primate or any other animal... the mutations suggested we are dealing with a completely new human-like being, very distant from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals or Denisovans." The skeptics have responded, but their dismissal is very ad hominem and addresses mostly the supposed personal flaws of Mr Forester's character and credibility rather than the actual information he's provided. Forester says the DNA tests were done privately and anonymously. The results were not published in any accredited scientific journal, but were announced by him independently.

This is understandable purely because whoever had the expertise to carry out DNA tests on these skulls, which are almost three thousand years old, probably earns a living in an existing job. They might not want to risk their livelihood by going public. The case against Brian Foerster also fails to take into account two highly significant correlations. One is the Starchild skull. This was from a body found in Mexico some distance away, and it's from about two millennia later than the Paracas ones, but the study project on that has been far more developed and has produced much more evidence. It does suggest that there was, and maybe still is, an extraterrestrial biological presence in the American continents, and it's been there for thousands of years, see background links below. What's more the Paracas people lived close to a very interesting society that emerged a few centuries later, the Nazca culture. These people are world famous for drawing huge diagrams and pictures on the flat surface of a desert many miles across. They can only be seen properly from at least several thousand feet up in the air. This meant that the Nazcans were creating this enormous work of art specifically for the benefit of individuals who were up in the sky; because it would be invisible to them on the ground. So I think we should take Brian Foerster's claim far more seriously than the skeptics are saying, and wait for more information. There also other occasions where human remains of a very abnormal shape or size have appeared, see background links.
