Again, if it can be reproduced, then why has it not been reproduced?
Why would someone want to?
What purpose would it serve?
And most of all....Who is going to pay?
I understand that you flat out believe the MH skull is a 'modern fake' but what I would like to know, is after reading everything related to
it, if you have done so, is where it was made, by whom, when and how, it would also be beneficial if you could provide us with the source of the
quartz, seeing as you're such an expert in this area..,...
As surprising as this may seem, I was once someone who believed that the MH skull was the 'real deal' until I did a little research on them and
found out that it was another hoax. Sorry to be so blunt but given the evidence(or lack of) IMHO it is the truth.
I refer again to this extract taken from wikipedia
The earliest published reference to the skull is the July 1936 issue of the British anthropological journal Man, where it is described as being in
the possession of Mr. Sydney Burney, a London art dealer who is said to have owned it since 1933. No mention was made of Mitchell-Hedges. There is
documentary evidence that Mitchell-Hedges bought it from Burney in 1944.
The above would make the claim by Anna Mitchell-Hedges's claim that she had 'discovered' the skull in 1924 to be a lie.
Hence the use of the world 'allegedly' in this extract from the same wikipedia page....
Perhaps the most famous and enigmatic skull was allegedly discovered in 1924 by Anna Le Guillon Mitchell-Hedges, adopted daughter of
British adventurer and popularist author F.A. Mitchell-Hedges.
The following is also taken directly from wikipedia...
The skull was in the custody of Anna Mitchell-Hedges, the adopted daughter of Frederick. She steadfastly refused to let it be examined by experts
(making very doubtful the claim that it was reported on by R. Stansmore Nutting in 1962). Somewhere between 1988–1990 Anna Mitchell-Hedges toured
with the skull.
Anna charged people to view the skull(an alleged artefact of immense power) which makes me wonder why the skull (if it is indeed mystically magical)
would not find offence at being treated as a simple menagerie spectacle. Remembering that the skull was 'said' to have a personality that is able to
communicate directly with peoples minds.
Why did this incredible artefact allow itself to be used in such a blasphemous way if it was so important and could potentially hold the key to
mankind's spiritual advancement?
Surely the fate of humanity is far more important than displaying the skull so Anna could make a few bucks.
If that isn't enough for you....Checkout Mitchell-Hedges
Mitchell-Hedges repeatedly made claims of having "discovered" Indian tribes and "lost cities" that had already been documented years,
sometimes centuries, before. He claimed he discovered "the cradle of civilization" in the Mosquito Coast of Nicaragua, and that the Bay Islands of
Honduras were remnants of the lost civilization of Atlantis.
He 'claimed' to have discovered lost cities that had already been documented. Surely this should be a ringer for a hoaxer?
For a time in the 1930s he had a weekly radio show out of New York City on Sunday evenings. Talking over a background of "jungle drums",
Mitchell-Hedges would tell dramatic tales of his adventures, usually including narrow escapes from death at the hands of "savages" or from jungle
animals ranging from a jaguar to a vicious attacking iguana.
Mr Mitchell-Hedges was an elaborate story teller....lol.....Look out for them vicious iguanas
And to top it all off.....
Mitchell-Hedges claimed to have discovered a "crystal skull" — he called it "The Skull of Doom" — at the Maya ruin of Lubaantun (which he
also claimed to have discovered) on an expedition to British Honduras (present-day Belize) in the 1920s. However he published no mention of the skull
until the late 1940s, not long after a crystal skull was auctioned off by Sydney Burney at Sotheby's in 1943. Mitchell-Hedges's crystal skull could
have been the one from Sotheby's as a skull with identical measurements was described in 1936, and its owner was Sydney Burney.
Yep you heard it right....the skull was sold at Sotheby's just before Mitchell-Hedges started telling everyone about the crystal skull he found in
the 1920's but failed to mention it to anyone until the 40's.....strange coincidences and didn't Anna claim she found it in 1924.
Sorry but the MH skull smacks of BS and the failure on Anna's part to allow anyone reputable to investigate it's manufacture(I'm not talking about
the HP analysis which was only to find out if it was mystical) just sets this hoax in stone for me.
Like you....I used to believe that the skulls were something special.....but as more & more pieces of the story didn't add up and the evidence
pointed to Mitchell-Hedges as being a complete fraud kept getting larger. I came to the conclusion that this is just another hoax, instigated for that
which makes the world go around......Money
