DNA test results: Paracas skulls are not human

The desert peninsula of Paracas is located on the southern coast of one of South America’s most enigmatic countries: Peru. It is there, in this barren landscape where Peruvian archeologist Julio Tello made one of the most mysterious discoveries in 1928. During excavations, Tello uncovered a complex and sophisticated graveyard under the harsh soil of the Paracas desert.

In the enigmatic tombs, Tello discovered a set of controversial human remains that would forever change how we look at our ancestor and our origins. The bodies in the tombs had some of the largest elongated skulls ever discovered on the planet, called the Paracas skulls. The Peruvian archeologist discovered over 300 mysterious skulls which are believed to be at least around 3000 years old.

As if the shape of the skulls wasn’t mysterious enough, a recent DNA analysis performed on some of the skulls presented some of the most enigmatic and incredible results that challenge everything we know about the origin and human evolutionary tree.

Skull Deformation: An Ancient religious practice

While several cultures around the globe practices skull deformation (elongation), the techniques used were different, meaning the results were also not the same. There are certain South American tribes that used to ‘bind infants skulls’ in order to change their shape, resulting in a drastically elongated cranial shape that resembled anything but ordinary humans. By applying constant pressure over a long period of time with the use of pieces of mood, the ancient tribes would achieve a cranial deformation which can also be found in ancient cultures from Africa. However, while this type of cranial deformation changed the shape of the skull, it did not alter the size, weight or cranial volume, all of which are characteristic traits of regular human skulls.

This is where the details about the Paracas skulls gets interesting. The Paracas skulls are anything but ordinary. The cranium of the Paracas skulls are at least 25 % larger and up to 60% heavier than the skulls of regular human beings. Researchers firmly believe that these traits could not have been achieved through head bindings as some scientists suggest. Not only are they different in weight, but the Paracas skulls are also structurally different and only have one parietal plate while ordinary humans have two.

These strange characteristics have further deepened the decade-old mystery surrounding the Paracas skulls and researchers still have no idea what they were in the past.

Further Testing

The director of the Paracas Museum of History sent five samples of the Paracas skulls to undergo genetic testing, and the results were mesmerizing. The samples which consisted of hair, skin teeth and some fragments of cranial bones gave incredible details that have fueled the mystery surrounding these anomalous skulls. The genetic laboratory to where the samples were sent was not informed of the origin of the skulls in order to avoid ‘influenced results.’

Interestingly, the mitochondrial DNA, which is inherited from the mother, showed mutations that were unknown to any man, primate or animal found on planet Earth. The mutations present in the samples of the Paracas skulls suggest that researchers were dealing with a completely new ‘human-like being,’ very different from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals or Denisovans.

Brien Foerster reported the following 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.

According to reports, the individuals from the Paracas skulls were so biologically different that it would have been impossible for humans and them to ‘interbreed’.  “I am not sure it will even fit into the known evolutionary tree,” the geneticist wrote.

Who were these mysterious beings? Did they evolve separately on Earth? What caused them to have such drastic differences from ordinary humans? And is it possible that these beings are actually not from Earth?

All of these possibilities are theories that cannot be overruled given the current testing. The only thing that we know so far is that there are many things out there that go far beyond the understanding of researchers, historians, and scientists. It is possible that after all the question of whether we are alone in the universe can be answered thanks to the Paracas skulls?

    Possibly one of the sets of ‘thought forms’ that became hardened bodies. As given through Edgar Cayce! The world is in for a big shock real soon! Get ready!

    • Lastrealindian

      Holly, I do believe you should do some very “in-depth” research about Mr. Cayce. “IF” one believes this cultist whom dabbled in “talking to dead people” from “many” generations in the past history of Earth; he talks to NONE of the dead at all. If you do believe the “man” has the ability to go against my Creator and attempt to contact dead people, then, he was a fool. He, “I” believe made contact with the “Dark Side” and the fallen angels, which are the spoken of “Demons”, not any dead person. Best check out the Old Testament about this very matter. You WILL locate everything you should know and will be a true “Christian Warrior” against the “Dark Side”.

  • Petroglyph

    The band of holes, Gobekli Tepe, Puma Punku, Nazca, and numerous others conclusively show that the Gods “came from the stars”. This was written by every evolutionary human species since the Sumerians. To deny the existence of not just other intelligent life, but that they have been here before is like denying Mr. Obama hates America.

    • gypsy

      You had me until the President Obama remark. He doesn’t hate America. It was the republicans that blocked every form the president sent through. Hell, Boner,, I mean Boner. Admitted to it in several interviews .

      • TRUTH d. Antagonist

        you’re an ignorant apologist. Obama had a Dem supermajority his first two years in office and what did he do with it? sign off on more wall street bailouts, more NSA spying, more crony appointments of Monsanto execs and lobbyists into his cabinet, then he increased Bush’s drone bombing missions tenfold, escalated in Afghanistan, started a NEW mission in Libya which destabilized the country allowing for the formation of ISIL out of the anti-Qaddafi rebels that he armed and trained, then did the same in Syria creating ISIS… all while laundering BILLIONS of dollars to the corporate health insurance industry by mandating coverage under threat of tax penalty. and to top it off, the racist motherfucker has deported more Hispanic immigrants than any other president in history, INCLUDING Statist progressive “social Democrat” hero FDR and his massive Repatriation program.

        after 7 years of complete disaster, reading idiots resort to the old “DERRRR it wuz duh republickins DERRRR” is an insult to even middle schoolers with the most cursory of knowledge of current events. getbthe fuck out of here.

        • WakeUp The Politics

          Let’s say this was true. But first, let me point out that being born a man of color, he cannot possibly be racist. People of color can’t be racist. Let me reiterate a third and last time. Reverse racism is a fallacy. Racism is only a direct assault/insult/ or action from privileged, white class humans to degrade, or make those of different from them in culture or skin feel LESSER then they are.
          If you are any different than a white male who’s never experienced TRUE poverty and what it means to struggle from day one because of the color of your skin, then chances are you may understand, but if not, the MOST you could EVER comprehend is some sign of sympathy. You could not ever hope to empathize.

          Second, you seem to dismiss the fact that without Obama, immigrants wouldn’t ever have stood a chance at life in the opportunity for foreigners would be squat. While I’m middle-of-the-road in this new immigration plan myself, I’m happy others have an flying chance to work and find education here. Yet I still struggle to find any better than a minimum wage job being a born citizen of color.
          You seem to have missed the fact that without Obama being in office, equality would have never stretched to encompass what is today. I say this from personal experience. I speak of LBGT equality and gay marriage rights. As a transgender veteran, I can’t speak for anyone who’s gay, bi, or lesbian, since my gender holds no bearing over my sexuality (ie attraction to whatever). I’m glad for gay marriage equality but it doesn’t help me unless I had a significant other of the same “assigned” birth. The veterans health care is what aided me. It’s a Godsend to me because I cannot currently hope to afford insurance at present.

          I could almost swear congress is AGAINST Obama, as they’ve seemed to try to squash anything worth listening to. We often forget that Obama is just one man. He can’t sit at the border, or straighten out the Border Patrol or any associated authorities that are being any harder than they “need to be”. These are a makeup of white people, and even some BORN in Mexico, who are being paid to shut up and “do their job”. If you have a plan to sweep those imbeciles up, then Goddamnit, run for President next year!

          But my sense is I’ll be the next victim for you to curse out and degrade, so let the shunning begin.

        • Lastrealindian

          Evis, I absolutely “know” for a fact that old “Darwins'” Theory of Evolution is pure bullshit! He read several other authors books to even come close to a dumb ass conclusion that we all crawled out of the fing seas! Now, though, “I” am NO expert, uneducated in college, yet, I can see with my own eyes the evolution of a single species of plant or animal. Just like people can change, they do.

          • arielmonserrat

            You aren’t even making sense here. NO you aren’t an expert and you need to study about evolution before commenting. Evolution is complicated and there’s alot to learn about it. Evolution is established as fact. Read Darwin’s “On the Origin of Species”. It’s long, complicated and makes complete sense. I’m guessing you’ve closed your mind to it because of your Christian ideas.
            YOu have no idea how foolish you’ve made yourself look by commenting on a topic you know NOTHING about.

          • Lastrealindian

            ariel, you are a total idiot! You read these screwy “Opinions”, guesses and ideas from some very ignorant authors. Darwin was a “Pledgerist” and you fell for his shit and the idiot authors he got that fing idea from and it was strictly “speculation”. Mr. “YOU” had better give you “arrogant” self a damn “FACT CHECK” AND RESEARCH EDUCATION”. You are a liar!

          • Lastrealindian

            EXCUSE ME! HOW WAS THIS “PROVEN”??? And, by whom?
            Ariel, YOU HAVE “NEVER” EVEN READ THE SCRIPTURES/BIBLE, or, you would “THEN” UNDERSTAND WHY YOU ARE SPEAKING LIKE A TOTAL FOOL

          • Lastrealindian

            You “Left-Wing” Communist!!!

          • Lastrealindian

            Darwin was a man without any sense.

      • arielmonserrat

        You don’t understand evolution – it’s never said we are descended from apes. We are descended from a common ancestor. BIG difference. Yet you have no trouble believing everything in the Bible, WITH NO EVIDENCE. You call yourself the Last Real Indian, but you are Christian????

        • Lastrealindian

          That would be only “two” common ancestors we ALL are damn sure we are their relatives. You “ARROGANT” PERSON!!!

    • Lastrealindian

      One must first believe in “Darwinism”…”evolutionism” to believe this man.

      • Lastrealindian

        NO! You give it a rest.

      • Lastrealindian

        Steve, I honestly do believe as you about these “nuts” going all screwy over the “fallen angels”. These types are not the ones who read. They listen to other people’s ideas about literally “everything”. Never having a single thought of their own.

      1) up to tens of percent and half of all ‘peer-reviewed’ dicoveries in some of the now-fashionable are unreproducible
      2) newton, einstein and others before science were captured by state-sponsored academia – were never peer-reviewed

      needless to say, p.r. in this case isn’t possible and therefore doesn’t prove anything.

    • Lastrealindian

      Why are you here if you doubt the possibility of these things? Yes, there were “Giants” on the Earth in those days…and afterward. It is not required you do any of your own research of course. Just be a doubter and a large “downer”.

      • Don’t care about you

        So go to the neo nazi website everything they say is true but we all know its a bunch of insecure people talking about how they are the true race of man.
        To make those kind of statements you must release your data and how it was conducted. Other wise its not true.

            Was I in your dreams? Is that what required another comment? Did I bother you that much? 2 months past and It comes up again.
            I do believe giants were in North America and that is based on US newspaper clippings from the 1800’s up to the 1930’s. The bones always get picked up by the Smithsonian and then disappear.

          • Lastrealindian

            OK. Just “why” are you adding the “Nazi’s” to an “Ancient History” type of blog? You just do not make sense. Maybe, “I” am missing something?

          • Don’t care about you

            The point was that you can go to a neo Nazi page that cites scientific bases the proves that the white man did not come from Africa like other races. They are many of these so called studies that prove pretty much anything a white supremacists / Nationalist should say that backs up their beliefs.
            With all the cognitive biases that a person has with that being said it is easy to find something online to back up their claims. This is said about the ancient alien theory also! There you have it.
