DNA Results For The Nephilim Skulls In Peru Are In And The Results Are Absolutely Shocking

How can we explain elongated skulls that are thousands of years old that contain genetic material "unknown in any human, primate or animal known so far"? The results of the first DNA tests on the famous Paracas skulls are now in...

I don't know what "Nephilim" are, will have to google it. The article is very interesting, I had not heard of the skulls before. They are most likely from another planet. I have read that earth was colonized from beings of another planet. Maybe it's true.

Could have been an evolutionary trait that never took hold or otherwise wasn't beneficial. As it is, we do a poor job at maintaining mental health, so the idea of bigger skulls and possibly better mental acuity may appear as a good thing but might not in turn give us any benefits. Either way the work is fascinating; I suggest people look into Lloyd Pye who has a very interesting take on human evolution and the planets.

Fascinating!!
"The Nephilim /ˈnɛfɨˌlɪm/ were the offspring of the "sons of God" and the "daughters of men" according to Genesis 6:4; and giants who inhabited Canaan according to Numbers 13:33"

I'm currently reading 'Mortal Instruments' and Nephilim are mentioned regularly. They are the descendants of angels and/or demons. Humans with powers, if you will.

Thanks for the article.

Thanks Elke H for sharing common sense. In South America and other parts of the world many cultures deformed their heads as a sign of beauty, status, etc. Please read the article of this site:
http://www.peruthisweek.com/blogs-calm-down-the-paracas-skulls-are-not-from-alien-beings-102258

Excerpt from the article:

There’s also the matter of the testing itself. According to Foerster, the geneticist who discovered the allegedly never-before-seen DNA, wants to remain anonymous. If that’s not a red flag for the credibility of your research, I don’t know what is.

The final nail in this story’s coffin, for me, was the revelation that Foerster had appeared on the popular History Channel program “Ancient Aliens” multiple times. In yesterday’s article, I said that the scientific and archaeological communities generally regard “Ancient Aliens” as inaccurate.

“Inaccurate.” That was an understatement.

Archaeologist Keith Fitzpatrick-Matthews has this to say about “Ancient Aliens”:

“I find it incredible and frightening that a worldwide distributed television channel that bills itself as ‘The History Channel’ can broadcast such rubbish as Ancient Aliens. If it were an entertainment programme, I’d have fewer worries (although it would still make me cross); it is the implied authority of the channel (‘The History Channel’, not just any old ‘History Channel’) that makes the broadcast of this series so potentially damaging […] A channel that is making claims for its authoritative status, which offers educational resources, has a responsibility not to mislead its viewers (no doubt its executives think of them as ‘customers’). That responsibility is one that all makers and broadcasters of supposedly factual television have, but one that few of them take seriously: the responsibility to check facts.”


I`m not claiming that there could be strange things out there, but be careful and always logic. Pseudoscience is dangerous .

Read De Jardin in high school in a progressive humanities course. I can appreciate keeping an open mind. Thanx for this info. I enjoy/relish hearing all perspectives. I do agree with physically having a very limited perspective in this realm!!!

It's not what you don't know that will mess up your life, it's what you know that ain't so. I realize neither Occam's razor nor Jefferson's skepticism produced perfect answers, but I think I will stand with them as against a paranormal tour guide who stands to make big money.

Interesting but much more reliable testing needs to be done. There is probably a logical explanation.

Interesting article. What did Paul say in the Bible? We see through a glass darkly. I don't think we'll ever really know all the truth from past times, and that's okay. Thanks for the post!

Not only this new DNA evidence, but the bone plates of the skulls are of a different confirmation than humans. Seems that this is the proof that we are not the only sentient race in the cosmos. Though, after finding us, I am not at all surprised that they left. I am sure we were a major disappointment to them.

The instant I saw "Nephilim" I went well its is recess at the asylum again and so should any one else. The Nephilim are the children of human women and depending on your preferred translation of the Biblical Hebrew either "the Sons of God", which gives Christians the quivering fits, or "fallen angels" not the Satan kind he had not been invented yet, but Angels that were so smitten with beauty of human women that they just had to get some it is also not clear whether is was rape or consensual and either way it does not help with the quivering fits.
Than we can get to the fact that since it says nothing to the contrary they are doing DNA analysis on skull that were dug up 86 years been handled and moved about with out any precautions against contamination of or the degradation of the DNA in the skulls performed by who? where?. And then the suppositions are announced before the already questionable testing is even complete. What?
And then there is the fact that I was disappointed that none of these Nephilim skulls had any horns, the ones with the horns are cool, so are the ones that are so gigantic that you can put you whole head in their mouths.

Potentially interesting but I will need no more and have it told to me by a source other then 'a sheep no more' which doesn't sound very trustworthy somehow.

I am highly skeptical. The site looks like a conspiracy site to me. Science has to be replicable, and public. Jumping from admittedly incomplete DNA sequences to a theory of extraterrestrials or mythical "Nephilim" is not justified.

However, there should be real Science done with these skulls. Not long ago, the small humans (called "hobbits" in many stories) were finally legitimized by real Science. Many people were skeptical about "hobbits" also. We don't know everything.

I will keep an open mind about the Paracas skulls until the real Science is in. But I am pretty certain they will not turn out to be alien remains, or mythical "Nephilim" either. It is far more likely they are the remains of another subspecies of humanoids or humans.

Peace.
