Recently while doing research for various topics I have been coming across another strange topic - strange unexplained human skulls.

I dont know what to make of these, for they are not all the same and alot have various aspects that the other strange skulls do not (nor aspects with our own for that matter!).

Most of these skulls are of adult humans, therefor these people actually lived, breathed, ate (did all the various human functions I presume) and eventually died... were these one time anomalies? were these independant 'races' of man that died out? Were these the 'head-binding' types?

I would like some feedback as to what you, my illustrious ATS researchers and paranormal investigators think about these:

I saw a documentary a year ago that presented the idea that human skulls have been changing over time, as part of evolution, and that this evolution was going to continue. It brought together a pretty convincing case that the head used to be a lot smaller, while the chin and jaw was very large. Over time it seems, something (I forget what - its in the back of the head though) changes, which results in the head (where the brain is) becoming larger, while the chin and jaw area gets smaller. They had about 5 different skulls to compare over time, and said that this evolution is happening more rapidly with each stage.

Funnily enough, if its right, and we are evolving in that way, we are going to look an awful lot like our aliens that we so generally stereotype as having massive a big head with a small chin.

yes, people used to shape the skulls of their children, nothing is unusual about this... the only thing that is unusual is that the horrid practice took as long as it did to die out.

That would be the sphenoid bone that the skull actually develops around. Evidence was shown of a progressive 'flexing' (or bending) of this bone is causing the change in human skull shape and brain capacity increasing. The changes don't appear to be gradual but seem to happen suddenly like over several generations worldwide which is beyond explanation so far and there's little doubt that it's happening. Each 'flexure' results in a markedly different species of humanoid.

It challenges the idea that more primitive species were overrun and wiped out by more advanced ones & indicates that they may have evolved (mutated is perhaps more accurate) over relatively short periods.

What influences the sudden sphenoid changes is unknown.

Heres another recent discovery you might find interesting.

news.nationalgeographic.com


The findings are grimly consistent with previous reports from other Gallina sites, the pair said. But the new skeletons offer tantalizing signs of how unique the culture may have been.
In particular, the skulls of two of the victims have an "unusual" flattened shape that has never been seen before in the Southwest, the experts said.
Such signs of a distinctive culture may help explain why the group was so plagued by violent conflicts with neighboring groups. But the scientists stress that their research is ongoing, and the ancient murders remain unsolved for now.


Binding or mutation of some sort would be my guess.

Yeah, I remember reading something about how our cranium is alot larger than it used to be and that the ratio of size to birth canal is extraordinarily large... larger than other mammals and at the very edge of tolerable levels... (The 'alien tinkering with our DNA' theory is therefore plausible)

Grock, what I think happened to cause cranial size to explode overnight in humans is that humans have access to SO much more protein than even predators because of technology. Protein heavily influences brain size, even during gestation.

Could very well be Uber, that could easily explain it...

In fact, there are a number of very similar explainations, im surprised we arent getting the feedback from those in the know who would say similar things...

I think it's a common theory that if a newborn human head got any bigger, it would kill too many mothers. And so the benefit/cost of evolutionary larger brains reached it's balancing point. Having watch my 2 kids being born, I'd say yeah, my wife wouldn't have been keen at all if their heads were even larger.

You'd think that larger hips and... openings... would be the next evolutionary step. Perhaps they are, given a few tens of thousands of years.

In several books of the Christian Bible there are parts of it that talk about Goliath who was 13 and one half feet tall, and Og King of Bashan whose bed was 18 and one half feet tall and 9 plus feet wide. These rulers where actually a race called the Nephilim which were offspring of the Watchers (The Fallen Angel Ones) and woman of Earth who they raped. Hence the corruption of the DNA. The Bible speaks of tribes of these in what is todays Palestine and other parts of the Mid East, however they did travel throughout the entire world. That is why these unusual skulls and full skeletons of enormity are being found everywhere. God saw that there was so much evil and these things had alot to do with it that he sent a the deluge over the entire earth. Unfortunately, they were still around even after the flood. See Genesis Chapter 6: 1-7. Also, these fallen angels where fooling around with DNA and mixing animals with men and men with fish etc. The outcome of that were the legends that were brought down from the Greeks and Romans about their Gods.

Galacticafan,
That ties in very closely to my post about giants (another interesting read if you are interested in such subject matter). One thing that brings up though... the mother of the baby giant must also be a giant UNLESS the baby is 'normal' size at birth... (i'd never thought of that before now).
