The Paracas skull mystery may have finally been solved. Scientists historically have passed these skulls off as cranial deformation. DNA tests using modern-day technology have finally been done on the Paracas skulls and the initial results are in.
It had mtDNA (mitochondrial DNA) with mutations unknown in any human, primate, or animal known so far. But a few fragments I was able to sequence from this sample indicate that if these mutations will hold we are dealing with a new human-like creature, very distant from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals and Denisovans.
The geneticist commented on the peer group findings: “I am not sure it will even fit into the known evolutionary tree,” in fact he went on to express that the DNA was so biologically different they would not have been able to interbreed with humans.
The skulls only contain one parietal plate, rather than two. The cranial volume of these skulls have been found to be up to 25 percent larger and 60 percent heavier than our human skulls, subsequently meaning they could not have been intentionally deformed through head cranial deformation.
This is just the first stage of testing. The second stage will be replicating the results to guarantee their analysis before a final conclusions can be drawn.
About the Paracas Skulls: In 1928 a Peruvian archaeologist, Julio Tello, stumbled upon a graveyard filled with the remains of humanoid individuals with the largest elongated skulls found anywhere on the planet. Over 300 of these skulls have been found.
