Like most ‘evidence’ of extraterrestrial presence on Earth, the ‘alien skull’ is remarkably humanoid in appearance- with standard human-esque features aside from the elongated shape of the skull. (Critics of UFO believers have often suggested that the likelihood alien species would resemble humans so closely is low.) Some theorize that the skull is that of a hydrocephalic child, and anthropologists are said to have arrived in the city of Andahuaylillas in the southern province of Quispicanchi in Peru to study the strange artifact.
London’s Daily Mail quoted the person who discovered the skull, Davila Riquelme, who claims the anthropologists from Spain and Russia “agreed [the skull] was ‘not a human being’” and would “conduct further studies.” The paper says:
‘Although the assessment was superficial, it is obvious that its features do not correspond to any ethnic group in the world.’
The remains of an eyeball in the right socket will help determine its genetic DNA – and clear up the controversy if it is human or not.
Another possible explanation for the skull is tribal ritual, which has in certain regions been known to involve skull modification. The practice has been known to occur for at least the past 9,000 years, and the paper says:
To achieve the desired shape, the head was wrapped in tight cloth. In the case of cranial flattening, the head was placed between two pieces of wood. The technique would usually be carried out on an infant, when the skull is at its most pliable. The cloth would be applied from a month after birth and be held in place for about six months.
Do you think there’s any chance at all the alien skull in Peru is a true extraterrestrial find?
