Uhm, guys... in case nobody's noticed, Cuba isn't anywhere NEAR the "location of Atlantis" on that rather bogus map.
And secondly, the skull is a type of cranial deformation practiced by the Mayans and Toltecs. They weren't born that way. They had boards and wrappings put around their heads when they were babies to help deform the heads. We know this because of all the skeletons we do have and the other artifacts we do have (babies with normal skulls, older children with slightly deformed skulls, adults with deformed skulls... and we also have the cords and other implements they used to shape the bones of the head. Check any museum with artifacts from Central Almerica.)
And, if memory serves, deforming the skull was only done in the upper classes. They also did things like file teeth and so forth.
Atlantis is/was South America.
