Paracas Skull Groundhog Day

This past Friday, Feb 2, Lynn Marzulli’s second round on Paracas skull DNA was revealed to a pay-per-view audience. The Groundhog Day timing was appropriate. We’ve seen this before.

I’d love to say “good job; thanks for doing the hard work on this.” But I can’t. This isn’t doing the hard work. It’s pretending to have experts, doing sloppy work, and steering an audience toward a pre-determined conclusion. It’s a bad testimony to the unbelieving world. Someone has to say it.

For the record (again), these skulls have nothing to do with nephilim and are nothing but human. They are well known and have been thoroughly researched. But believers won’t care. The veracity of the Bible does not depend on such academic chicanery. And that’s the problem. For outsiders looking in, this will be another conformation in how Christians not only don’t think well, but just aren’t interested in thinking well. It’s another reinforcement of the myth that faith and reason are incompatible, and that pre-determined conclusions can be considered honest when it comes to the Bible. Sorry, but the ends don’t justify the means when it comes to presenting Scripture and representing Jesus.

If you think I’m being harsh, read Jason Colavito’s summary of the event. It will tell you how thinking people are processing this sort of sideshow. So far as I know, Jason is not a Christian. With enough exposure to stuff like this, I can’t blame him for never wanting to be one. And he won’t be alone in that by a long stretch. My apologies to Jason and other serious people who may have little interest in the gospel, and who will have even less interest now. I wish I could instead introduce them to some of the hundreds of scientists and scholars I personally know with sterling academic reputations and long histories publishing under peer review who are serious (not “name only”) Christians. Some of them leading experts in fields relevant to DNA research. In other words, they’re exactly the sort of people Marzulli doesn’t want involved and could never convince to endorse his “research.” (Look at Jason’s description of Marzulli’s team). All I can do is apologize and wish that, at some point, you’ll be exposed to serious people who have thought long and hard about the questions that represent obstacles to faith in the minds and hearts of so many, and who have embraced the gospel on the other side of that journey. I hope the same for Marzulli’s audience.

I’ve blogged before about the problems in Marzulli’s first round of DNA testing. Specific examples from someone who actually does that sort of thing can be found here.  It’s a long post, but has a lot of detail. It details the sampling and testing problems that researchers like Colavito presume (with good reason) were not addressed by the second round of testing.

Second time around. Groundhog Day. Maybe it’s God’s way of injecting some humor into this. It’s not working, Lord.

Gaia TV-Jaime Maussan Mummy Fraud Exposed

The UFO Watchdog has an informative write-up chronicling the demise of yet another Jaime Maussan fraud: Gaia-Maussan Mummy Comes Unraveled. I can hardly wait until the next one. I wonder what’ll come first … a new phony end of the world date or another Maussan fiasco.

The article features a screenshot of the DNA report below along with commentary:

“This looks to be a single page from a forty-two page report and this page clearly states that a bone sample taken from the hand of the mummy was examined and found to be “a 100% match to Homo sapiens (human).”

There you have it in very plain words; the mummy is human.  End of story.  It should be, but now Gaia.com is saying the results were 99% in an attempt to muddy the waters so they can further attempt to propel this story in an effort to hook more subscribers.  It was predictable that Gaia would put some kind of spin on this to try to keep this story alive.  If Gaia.com was dedicated to the truth they make their mantra, then why have they not released the full DNA report?”

Nice rhetorical question.

Here’s another post on the same testing.

I sincerely hope that Peruvian archaeological authorities investigate everyone involved with an eye toward establishing that human remains were altered and desecrated. That might mean prison, which would be a happy ending.

PEERANORMAL Episode 11: Bigfoot DNA

Back in 2012 the world heard that Bigfoot DNA had been isolated and genetically tested under controlled laboratory conditions. Those involved claimed that the testing had proven the existence of Bigfoot (aka, Sasquatch), and that the creature was a hybrid between modern homo sapiens and an unknown primate species.In a short time, the story unraveled and the research was scrutinized by experts revealing a number of flaws. But this was not the only attempt at producing genetic evidence for Bigfoot. There were earlier and subsequent tests. Is there genuine evidence for Bigfoot DNA?

The episode is now live.

Elongated Skulls: Professional vs. Amateur Research

Below are three informative essays on elongated skulls that anyone interested in the topic should read. They are informative because they provide a good survey (and sources in the notes) of the sort of research professionals conduct on these skulls, and because they critique amateur efforts (Marzulli, Foerster efforts). The latter is important, as the essays note the foibles of amateur research by asking the kinds of questions about data and methodology that real experts ask — and expect to be addressed, because their own work has to account for the same items.

Some of the essays are old, which means amateur researchers ought to have taken note.

DNA, Canaanites, and the Biblically-Illiterate Media

By now I’ve probably received a heads up on the story about Canaanite DNA disproving the biblical conquest narrative a dozen times. Here’s my own heads-up: If you see some “news” about the Bible in mass media, you can presume it’s click-bait archaeoporn that will invariably get something wrong. This latest was no exception.

I won’t bore you with the details (you can read the link above if you want). Basically, no (including some of the scholars quoted in the articles) bothered to look at the totality of the conquest narrative. It’s quite clear that not all the Canaanites were eliminated. And if you’ve read my book, Unseen Realm, there are several verbs used in the conquest instructions that don’t call for death of the Canaanites. The real target for elimination were the Anakim. But I digress. Anyway, several media outlets have now issued apologies and retractions for being biblically illiterate. A nice gesture, but I doubt they’ll learn the lesson.

Genetic Mythologies: “Nephilim DNA” from the Paracas skulls

The title of this post corresponds to an excellent post by Dr. Jennifer Raff on her personal blog. Dr. Raff is an assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Kansas, and director and principal investigator at the University of Kansas laboratory of human population genetics. She has a dual PhD in cellular-molecular biology and anthropology. In other words, she’s the perfect person to evaluate claims about DNA testing on the elongated skulls from Paracas.

Spoiler alert: There’s nothing anomalous about the DNA of these skulls that points to aliens or nephilim.

Folks, the elongated skulls from Paracas and elsewhere have nothing to do with nephilim.

PRINCE PHILIP SWEARS at Photographer – “Just Take the F***ing Picture”

PRINCE PHILIP SWEARS at Photographer – “Just Take the F***ing Picture”

The Duke of Edinburgh, an old Naval hand, appeared to revert to some salty language during an overlong photocall at events to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

Losing patience as a photographer dithered, the famously straight-talking Prince Philip, 94, seemingly commanded: “Just take the fucking picture!” His exasperation erupted during a photocall at the RAF Club, which Philip attended with the Duke of Cambridge and the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

The moment was caught on video by TV cameras during a day of events commemorating the start of the Battle of Britain in July 1940, which earlier had featured senior members of the royal family, including the Queen, watching an RAF flypast from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

He looked visibly distressed at the time it was taking, while others laughed at Duke’s outburst. On stroking a koala – “Oh no, I might catch some ghastly disease!” 2. To Indigenous leader William Brin in Queensland – “Do you still throw spears at each other?” 3. On seeing a piezo-meter water gauge in Australia – “A pissometer?” When offered wine in Rome, he snapped, “I don’t care what kind it is, just get me a beer!” The Battle of Britain – named by Winston Churchill before it even began – was the first major defeat for Germany in World War II, and although the war continued for five more years, it is widely seen as one of a just a handful of ‘turning points’ for the allied forces.

This week’s revelation that the wealthy are purchasing secret hideaways in remote locations in order to escape social upheaval and possible riots is the culmination of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s warning that a worldwide “political awakening” is serving to derail the move towards further global centralization of power. Economist Robert Johnson made headlines at the recent Davos Economic Forum when he revealed that “hedge fund managers all over the world….are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway.” royal photography photo “battle of britain” british “great britain” uk london “united kingdom” picture pic social society respect 2015 2016 “prince philip” “group photo” selfie anger angry naval navy history historic anniversary celebration camera DSLR video funny prank RAF “royal airforce” studio “photo studio” perfection elite wealthy wealth news media entertainment “elite nwo agenda” medal david icke problem reaction solution anonymous we are change coast to coast am alex jones infowars rant crazy illuminati george soros billionaire super rich lifestyle new world order louis farrakhan

“The world is a very scary place right now, especially for people of means; they feel cornered and threatened,” said Tom Gaffney, the president of Gaffco Ballistics, which has installed a number of safe rooms around New York City. “When you have so much to lose, and you can afford to, you put a premium on your safety.” The entrepreneurs are driven by a certitude that rebuilding, regenerating, and reprogramming patients’ organs, limbs, cells, and DNA will enable people to live longer and better. The work they are funding includes hunting for the secrets of living organisms with insanely long lives; engineering microscopic nanobots that can fix your body from the inside out; figuring out how to reprogram the DNA you were born with; and exploring ways to digitize your brain based on the theory that your mind could live long after your body expires.

The U.S. fought a war of independence against the British control of its government and economy, yet modern day Americans fawn over the royal family, whom they identify with. This is the result of deliberate social engineering campaigns to build celebrity and importance around a parasitic and tyrannical gang that has led and funded Eugenics, carbon taxes, population reduction and much more. Many among the elite believe that the “transhumanism” movement will eventually allow them to completely merge with technology and essentially become part-human/part-machine cyborgs which will have indefinite lifespans.
