"Alien-like" *human* skulls found?

The story is all over the 'net, so you can do your own search and find it. I'm just curious, do we have any doctors here that specialize in anatomy who can comment on the pic? I can see, as mentioned in other archeological articles, the shape of the head being coaxed by binding the skull with wooden boards, but I'm interest in the shape of the eyes and the proportion of the zygomatic bone, along with the location of the ramus branch of the mandible.

I pulled up a comparo pic of the human skull, and the attachment location looks a tad bit off.

artificial cranial deformation. used to be fairly common practice, probably still is in some parts of the world. Nothing out of the ordinary. basically you bind the head from a young age, and it will grow in the shape of the bind. very much like the bound feet of Chinese women.

That part is familiar to me. But looking at the mandible, on the human skull, it attaches behind the eye socket. This attaches under the eye socket. How does something like that get pulled off?

hmm didnt see that before. No clue, it was probably caused by the bind pushing the mandible forward/up.

The skull is very much real, they have been found all over the world. Like mentioned earlier, it was a very common practice. People with elongated skulls were of importance it was a symbol of being better than everyone else. The alien explanation on the other hand is probably fake.

Not that wikipedia is the end all source, but they offer a good summary and explanation of the practice.

tl;dr. Skull is real, Aliens are fake. the end

yeah I think i've seen that episode on Taboo where some cultures deform their bodies whether it be stretching their necks, skulls or breaking their legs and stretching it , but that picture right there looks real fake.

Hmm...I don't see that. Are you mistakenly seeing the depression by the temporal region as the eye socket? Where the lower mandible comes up to the skull looks the same as a regular human's to me.

I realized after looking for a bit that the skull is turned to the side and that dark slit I mistakenly thought was the eye socket *lol*. DOH!

if there was undeniable proof, it'd certainly be beyond top secret. and anyone with that kind of clearance would have to lie about it.

we'll never know.

I believe in Aliens, you gotta be insane to say no when there are more stars in the universe than grains of sand of all the beaches on Earth. Each of those stars have planets orbiting around it, the probability is very very high...


Now, I don't believe that we'll ever get to see them, because of the sheer distance. It takes the fastest space craft we have, 100,000 years to get to Alpha Centauri, our nearest star...all that worm hole, black hole, speed warp BS is all science fiction. To get somewhere far you have to go really really fast for a really really long time...so we are confined in our Solar System, maybe never knowing of the other's existence...


Pic is a hoax

+1

I don't believe in UFOs etc. but its possible that there is so much more out there than we know. We are wrapped up in our own lives we forget how tiny this Earth really is.

Who is to say that an Alien space craft has not already been traveling for millions of years?
