A recent blog post from Dr. Michael Heiser:


Elongated Skulls: Not a Mystery

Paleobabble

December 21, 2014

I wish I had a dollar for every TV show, website, or ancient alien enthusiast email that touts the bogus idea that elongated skulls are proof of either aliens, nephilim, or both. It’s utter nonsense.

These enthusiasts regularly suggest and assume that mainstream archaeologists, anatomists, geneticists, and pathologists are hopelessly befuddled and bewildered by these skulls. They aren’t — that narrative is as bogus as the above interpretation.

Elongated skulls from places like Peru and other Pre-Columbian contexts are well known. They are the product of either deformity or deliberate modification / alteration. They have been scrupulously and methodically studied. Here’s one example:

This (very expensive) scholarly publication is current (2013). It’s 281 pages of scholarly study of these skulls via multiple perspectives. Here’s the Table of Contents. Take note of the highly technical nature of the research.

[...]

I don’t think I’m going out on a limb when I say that those who promote these skulls as evidence of alien hybridization or nephilim haven’t read, much less addressed and refuted, material like this. And THAT is precisely what such “researchers” need to do — produce data that overturn the science represented in works like this one. To be blunt, if you’re following someone whose research promotes those ideas, you’re being duped.

It simply isn’t true that the scholarly community in the relevant fields and sub-fields are fearful of these skulls. They’re not reeling in the wake of such “evidence” for those ideas. They’re laughing.

Yes, Doc. DrDil contributed content to a post at 'The UFO Trail' I did a couple years ago, 'Open Mic Night', consisting of statements from a diverse mixture of members of the UFO community about constructive directions for ufology. He posted about it around here somewhere. Anyway, maybe you and some others might find it interesting. Actually, DrDil was pretty much why I joined UFOC in the first place.

From Dr. Michael Heiser at 'UFO Religions':


Helicopters and Spaceships in Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs?

UFO Religions

October 17, 2014

Hardly.

When it comes to internet mythology about alleged alien assistance to the ancient Egyptians, the hieroglyphs in the picture are ground zero. As with the case of the lightbulb in Egyptian art, and the mis-identified picture of an alien grey in an Egyptian wall painting, the claim that there were technologically advanced flying craft in ancient Egypt is utterly bogus.

The glyphs in question are in the temple of Seti I at Abydos. I have blogged about these glyphs before, explaining that they are a well-known and classic instance of hieroglyphic superimposition — a palimpset. In briefest terms, the panel in Seti I’s tomb on which the current glyphs was originally carved with a set of “normal” hieroglyphs. At a subsequent point in time, the glyphs were plastered over and re-carved — a well-known phenomenon in ancient Egyptian monumental writing. After centuries of time, the plaster came off, revealing what we see now — two sets of hieroglyphs superimposed. That is why some of the shapes on this panel are unlike any others in Egypt.

The mdw-ntr website has a detailed, thorough, splendidly illustrated step-by-step explanation of this process. It is absolutely certain that these hieroglyphs are the result of carving one set of glyphs over another for a simple reason: each set of glyphs is known from other texts. It is quite easy to illustrate how the “helicopter” came about from both sets of glyphs. If you want the truth, it’s all here.

See original post for supporting links:

http://drmsh.com/2014/10/17/helicopters-and-spaceships-in-ancient-egyptian-hieroglyphs/

=============================================

As referenced by Dr. Heiser, the mdw-ntr website is operated by Medew Netcher and is rich in Egyptian-related content, including study courses, language, artifacts and more. The specific post referenced, 'Aliens And Space Crafts in Ancient Egyptian Temple - Explained', may (and should, if you're interested in alleged UFOs in Egyptian glyphs) be viewed at:

http://mdw-ntr.com/blogs/all-categories/articles/item/2-aliens-and-space-crafts-in-ancient-egyptian-temple-debunked#.VEKGwGddWXs

On a related note, UFO Casebook's DrDil did an informative and well researched piece in 2007 titled, 'UFO's In Sacred Works Of Art', in which the author clarified some misinterpretations commonly held. The post may be viewed at:

http://ufodigest.com/news/0707/sacredart.html


I actually wrote about that exact image and exact same conclusion back in 2009:

For every outlandish theory there’s a more mundane one, I realise that sometimes the ‘mundane’ explanations are more far-fetched than the ‘outlandish’ ones but in this case I personally believe that “palimpsest” explains it quite sufficiently, (without resorting to swamp gas or luminescent owls!!)

Great to see you post, DrDil! Hi!

Yes, I very well recall your interest in the often incorrect interpretations of art depicting biblical scenarios. I saw one of those images on Twitter just the other day along with exclamations of how ET was watching the proceedings.

Ya can't keep a good meme down!

Ha ha...

Hope all is well with you, and, again, great to see you post.

I'm pinching I'm pinching (hope that BEEP means you're awake?). Welcome back DrDil smiley. Veering (loosely) back on topic: I feel as if Moses came down from the mountain (someone hide that golden calf AND FOR GODS SAKE STOP DANCING ALREADY..!!).

Do you see anything flying in the Bible, DrDil? All you guys?

Thanks JJ and sterling work with your Blog.

I'm so pleased to see it’s still getting the recognition it so richly deserves but even more pleased that you’re still trying to keep *everyone* in Ufology honest.

Seriously, great work!! wink


Cheers.
