Elongated Skull Found at Russian Stonehenge

skull-585x306

An elongated skull has been unearthed at Arkaim, otherwise known as “Russia’s Stonehenge,” and the alien theories have already started. Though, the most likely explanation is head binding.

Paul Seaburn writes at Mysterious Universe:

Researcher Maria Makurova announced the discovery to the Russian news agency TASS. She described it as “a well-preserved skeleton” of a female. The skeleton appears to be from the 2nd or 3rd century AD, most likely after the original settlement was abandoned by its first residents. Markurova speculates she was a member of the Sarmati tribe which lived at the time in what are now central Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.

If she’s a Sarmati tribal woman, that might explain the elongated skull since they were known for head binding – the gruesome practice of deforming a child’s head by applying constant force over long periods.

That explanation will satisfy the skeptics but not those who believe that, like Stonehenge, Arkaim may have been visited and perhaps even populated at one time by grey aliens or another alien species with outsized skulls.

Bloodline of the Gods

For the Human Race, there are four, primary, types of blood. They are A, B, AB, and O. The classifications are derived from the antigens of a person’s blood cells – antigens being proteins that are found on the surface of the cells and which are designed to combat bacteria and viruses.

Blood Drive...

Most of the human population have such proteins on their cells. They are the Rh positive percentage of the Earth’s people. Within the United States, current estimates suggest that around 85 percent of all Caucasians, roughly 90 percent of African Americans, and approximately 98 percent of Asian Americans are Rh positive.

The small percentage of the U.S. population (and that of the rest of the world, too, it should be noted) which does not exhibit the relevant proteins falls into a very different category, that of the Rh negatives.

Why one particular group of people should have blood that is so incredibly different to that of just about everyone else, is a matter of deep controversy.… Read the rest

The Fermi Paradox: Where Are All The Aliens?

Now that Yuri Milner has thrown $100 million towards the search for aliens, Tim Urban ponders just why there isn’t anybody out there at Quartz. Where are all the aliens, dammit!

Everyone feels something when they’re in a really good starry place on a really good starry night and they look up and see this:

Some people stick with the traditional—feeling struck by the epic beauty or blown away by the insane scale of the universe. Personally, I go for the old “existential meltdown followed by acting weird for the next half hour.” But everyone feels something.

Physicist Enrico Fermi felt something too—“Where is everybody?”

A really starry sky seems vast—but all we’re looking at is our very local neighborhood. On the very best nights, we can see up to about 2,500 stars (roughly one hundred-millionth of the stars in our galaxy), and almost all of them are less than 1,000 light years away from us (or 1% of the diameter of the Milky Way).

Russian Entrepreneur Promises $100 Million to Search for Aliens

Russian Internet entrepreneur Yuri Milner and British scientist Stephen Hawking held a press conference in London today in which they announced that Milner is pledging $100 million to search for aliens. We can help Yuri… The New York Times covered the announcement:

Extending his idea of philanthropy beyond the earth and even the human species, Yuri Milner, the Russian Internet entrepreneur and founder of science giveaways like the annual $3 million Fundamental Physics Prizes, announced in London on Monday that he would spend at least $100 million in the next decade to search for signals from alien civilizations.

The money for Breakthrough Listen, as Mr. Milner calls the effort, is one of the biggest chunks of cash ever proffered for the so far fruitless quest for cosmic companionship known as the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, or SETI. It will allow astronomers to see the kinds of radar used for air traffic control from any of the closest 1,000 stars, and to detect a laser with the power output of a common 100-watt light bulb from the distance of the nearest stars, some four light-years away, according to Mr.

New Mexican Slender Alien Video

There’s a video doing the rounds in which a citizen in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, purportedly captures smartphone video footage of a slender alien scampering around on his roof. According to Brazil Weird News,

The video about the occurrence, in Spanish – was posted in Youtube by a local television news, El Mañana. Preliminary analysis of the material showed that the images have no cuts, animations or transition effects, indicative of the footage authenticity.

Here’s the video – what do you think?

Return to Roswell

Roswell

I think the J.F.K. assassination is probably the biggest conspiracy theory of all time, and it’s probably still the one that acts as the gateway for most folks who wander the mazes of the unexplained, the unknown, and the covered-up. The Roswell Incident is probably a close second contender overall and it remains the king of conspiracy theories where flying saucers and extraterrestrial visitors are concerned.

There is so much confusion about the alleged crash as well as the reports of discovered debris and rescued bodies that it’s hard to pin down the actual dates of the event itself. One thing is for sure: on June 24, 1997 the U.S. Air Force published it’s 231 page report Case Closed: Final Report on the Roswell Crash. Here’s The New York Times on the report, the incident and the conspiracy theory that won’t go away…

On June 24, 1997, the Air Force released a 231-page report titled “Case Closed: Final Report on the Roswell Crash.” It suggested the alien bodies witnesses reported seeing in Roswell, N.M., in July 1947 were actually life-sized anthropomorphic test dummies.

Forget Little Green Men – Aliens Will Look Like Humans

Alright alien-hunters, you can stop looking for Grays, Little Green Men or other freakish alien stereotypes. They’re going to look like us according to Professor Simon Conway Morris, reports the Independent:

They are often portrayed on screen as little green men with elongated limbs and saucer-like eyes.

From E.T to the X-Files, aliens from outer space have captured our imagination for decades.

Yet a new book from a leading evolutionary biologist argues that if they exist and we ever encountered them, they would look very similar to us.

Professor Simon Conway Morris said extra-terrestrials that resemble human beings should have evolved on at least some of the many Earth-like planets that have been discovered by astronomers.

In his new book published on 2 July, The Runes of Evolution, the University of Cambridge academic builds on the principle of convergent evolution – that different species will independently evolve similar features, with the comparison of the camera eye of an octopus and a human eye a favourite example – and argues it will not just took place on Earth.

The Night Doctors: the terror behind the abduction phenomenon

Theo Paijmans writes a compelling analysis of the abduction phenomenon over at Mysterious Universe:

Do the roots of how we have come to perceive the UFO abduction phenomenon lie elsewhere, not between the stars but buried in the folklore and superstition of a suppressed people? If so, what does it tell us? Is the abduction phenomenon older than we think, does it manifest itself amongst the various cultures on earth in a different way? A hundred years ago you’d be having a very good chance that an African American, no matter where he might live in the United States, might mutter in agreement to all these questions, before hurrying off in utter fear.

Not too long ago large parts of the American population were the victim of a virulent racism, and, although the sharpest edges have been removed, it has never totally gone away. What this racism also brought with it was a unique divergence of the folkloric beliefs and superstitions of the various racial populations that made up America.
