This is all well and good but there's been evidence that at least some ( if not most ) of these crystal skulls are fake which detracts from the idea
all together, not only that but there's been no historical evidence that crystal skulls were ever used in Mayan culture.. it doesn't help that these
codices aren't being made public... so it doesn't support it as being genuine..
They are televising an event eh? sounds like a publicity stunt.. there's money in the 2012 crap ... and this sounds like a cash in ..
The evidence I'm talking about is machining marks being discovered on the skulls, and the paranormal properties such as the temperature being
debunked by scientists .. ( use google, it's your friend.. ), plus the skulls do not hold up when dating techniques are applied.. the source of the
crystal material they are made from also doesn't line up geographically with the claims..
There's SO much against the crystal skull stuff that it's not even worth considering seriously in my opinion .. this article lost a lot of
credibility by referencing it.
Some fun exerpts from wikipedia
Eugène Boban, main French dealer in pre-Columbian artifacts during the second half of the 19th century and probable source of many famous
In other words, this guy found a niche market and took advantage of it .. he likely had these skulls made.
The "Smithsonian Skull", which is Catalogue No. A562841-0 in the collections of the Department of Anthropology, National Museum of Natural History,
was mailed to the Smithsonian Institution anonymously in 1992, and was claimed to be an Aztec object by its donor and was purportedly from the
collection of Porfirio Diaz. It is the largest of the skulls, weighing 31 pounds and is 15 inches high. It was carved using carborundum, a modern
abrasive. It has been displayed as a fake at the National Museum of Natural History.
In 2009 the C2RMF researchers published results of further investigations to establish when the Paris skull had been carved. Scanning electron
microscopy (SEM) analysis indicated the use of lapidary machine tools in its carving. The results of a new dating technique known as quartz hydration
dating (QHD) demonstrated that the Paris skull had been carved later than a reference quartz specimen artifact, known to have been cut in 1740. The
researchers conclude that the SEM and QHD results combined with the skull's known provenance indicate it was carved in the 18th or 19th
The British Museum catalogues the skull's provenance as "probably European, 19th century AD" and describes it as "not an authentic
pre-Columbian artefact". It has been established that this skull was made with modern tools, and that it is not authentic.
And the most famous of the skulls .. the Mitchel Hedges Skull:
Although various claims have been made over the years regarding the skull's physical properties, such as an allegedly constant temperature of 70 °F
(21 °C), Dorland reported that there was no difference in properties between it and other natural quartz crystals.
As well as the traces of mechanical grinding on the teeth noted by Dorland, Mayanist archaeologist Norman Hammond reported that the holes (presumed to
be intended for support pegs) showed signs of being made by drilling with metal. Anna Mitchell-Hedges refused subsequent requests to submit the skull
for further scientific testing.
This is more 2012 hype .. it will be added to the plethora of doomsday predictions that count in the thousands dating back to 2800 BC .. yet we're
all still here, imagine that.
