Sadly it seems as if all the information about these people (assuming they actually exist) is all copied from the same source, or rather, everyone
copies each other (including the site you linked to). The HAB Theory site references them, quoting the text in the book nearly verbatim. Which, oddly
enough, is the same info everywhere else. Maybe it's the originating source?
The photo of the people is the only picture I've been able to find, and it really makes me question its authenticity. In the end we have no guarantee
that it's genuine, nor do we have any assurance that the stones actually have any writing on them. Which brings up another question: how were the
stones translated? Would not a key or some sort be required? Whenever these stories come up, there are stories of how one or two people, working
alone, managed to "Crack the code" so to speak. Meanwhile, Egyptian hieroglyphs were impossible to penetrate without the assistance of the Rosetta
stone, and therefore remained undeciphered for over a thousand years.
I also find it curious that there are fairly decent pictures of the stones themselves, but none of the alleged writing, nor more modern photos of the
Dropa. It's bloody convienient that the area where the Dropa are claimed to live is supposed to be off-limits to the West. That would make simple
verification possible. As it is, all we have is the word of a vague and undefined group of people (or possibly even just one person). Coincidentally,
there is another tribe of people referenced in the Dropa story, a race called the "Han". The Chinese call themselves Han.
All-in-all, there's something less-than-credible about the whole thing. If I could find some DIFFERENT information about the Dropa, something which
doesn't seem to be a word-for-word copy of the material in the HAB Theory, I might have an easier time believing the story.
